This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
I wanted to get my wears a lot of hats badge for this by uploading to the 'themed sets' category, but alas, in the upload form I couldn't even find it. Maybe this is the secret category.

This was a very long, tedious project to undertake I tell you what. I noticed that when a new EP comes out for The Sims 3 conversion creators kind of forget about the older SPs, there were a lot of things in Outdoor Living Stuff that I really liked though, and really wanted for my game, so of course I had to share.

This is what you get (for all the objects, there are 2 recolors each) -

Lighting -

Monolithic Lumens. Lighting/Misc. Price - 600
Caged Candle. Lighting/Ceiling. Price - 676 (The ceiling light was cloned from a floor lamp and placed in ceiling lights to avoid no fading & limited placement).

Bar Area -

Outdoorsy Life Bar. General/Party. Price - 800
Throne D'Elegance. Seating/Misc. Price - 600

Decorative -

Whimsical Waterfalls. Decorative/Sculpture. Price - 3,500
Speldiferous Brand Serving Dish. Decorative/Sculpture. Price - 20

Hobbies -

Ricardo Richards' Easel. Hobbies/Creativity. Price - 350

Food (Drink) -

Lemonade. Cloned from instant meal. No cooking skill required. Available for all 3 meals. Has a new pie menu "Have a Drink" or "Serve Drinks".

Only known issue I can think of is there may be the lemons going into the glass of the lemonade because of TXMT edits, but it's barely noticeable.

Previews -

Polygon Counts:
Floor Light - 166
Ceiling Lamp - 244
Bar - 442
Bar stools - 348
Fountain - 706
Serving Dish - 183
Easel - 358
Lemonade - Serving - 556 Single Cup - 406

the hanging light and the waterfall are definitely going to be overused in my game because they're perfect for the aesthetic i go for. Thank you.

The waterfall is fabulous! There just aren't enough waterfalls/fountains for S2. I will use this one a lot. Thank you for your hard work and sharing with us.

um, 7zip is free just like winrar, and I'm pretty sure that WinRAR can open 7z files. Don't complain about the file type please.

Ditto to what Kims*Design and FrostytheSnowSim123 said. I am rather selective about what I download these days, but this set is great and working fine in my game. Mad props to you!!!

Very cool! Always nice to see more TS3 to TS2 conversions!

(And before anyone else *complains* WinRAR has handled 7z files just awesomely for years...just like virtually any half-decent "ZIP type" program floating around out there nowadays.)

Awesome work. The fountain is an especially welcome addition.

I don't have any kind of clean installers or whatever because I don't know how to work them but extracting the file into downloads worked for me. Great job. I downloaded. :DD

This is so pretty! I am super glad it comes with recolors too. You know what would be freaking incredible? If you made this into a full kitchen set with a fridge, oven, counter, etc. At first that's what i thought this was because i desperately need a kitchen set like this for the new house i'm working on. But this is so pretty i'm gonna use it anyway =D Thanks!
