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.

This was a quick one using my gargoyle mesh.

Created With MilkShape 3D 1.7.5
Packaged Using SimPE 0.44.2046.26185
EP-Ready uni not required
Poly Count 3747

Thanks to Cazkiwi for the info this is a 'grotesque' as correctly a gargoyle is on a building as a rain water spout.

This can be placed on any surface including the mantlepiece.

Allso a suggested item for Lethe_s Occult Shop Here

Feel free to re-colour

Thanks to all at Modthesims2

The limit used to be 5000 per tile take a look at some of the Maxis objects a lot can be done with 2000/2600. I have already put it through DX mesh tool to reduce it from my origonal draft. So it becomes a trade off on detail and poly counts. I chose the detail.

This is why the poly counts are included in the post for the downloaders discretion. This object has no impact on my system which by todays standerds is an old AMD xp3200+ asus A7N8X-E mother board with 1024 DDR ram. I allways bear in mind the poly counts.

Well Gromit you know I'm happy I can't wait to use it in the game. I think detail is very important and it is this reason that I love your work. And I agree that the whole reason of putting the poly count is for those who worry will just have to go without, I for one will not go without. Please I hope you won't change your ideals just for a couple ungratefuls, some of us out here are more than grateful you make such wonderful objects. It is really cute though.

Is there anyway to make this object bigger? Cause I would like to use for the outside of the houses.
