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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Grass and weeds- perfect for decorate a meadows. Weeds are converted from Sims 2.

- 3x3 tile grass (tall)- no recolorable
- 2x2 tile grass (medium)- no recolorable
- 1x1 tile grass (tall) it's recolorable, you can change pattern
- weeds- have recolorable stalk, I made some small correct, change height (weeds are a bit taller) and also correct a map.

Objects can be found in Build Mode/plants and cost 2 simoleons, they don't have shadows.

Please use second chanell to change patterns, because first is not active.

Polygon Counts:
3x3 tile grass: 896 vertices, 848 faces
2x2 tile grass: 896 vertices, 848 faces
1x1 tile grass: 663 vertices, 376 faces
weeds (the same as original): 990 vertices, 891 faces

Additional Credits:
TSR Workshop, Milkshape 1.8.5 Beta, UV Mapper, Gimp2, SimPe, EA for the original mesh and texture

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

It helps counteract the very flat grass that the vanilla game has. Thanks!
