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.
Why stop at flat terrain paint when you can do more, when you can make you terrains more 3dimensional and interactive?
Diggables can turn any terrain into a place to find little hidden treasures. They come in 10 versions, to complement any terrain: desert and beach sand, plain soil and mossy soil, three colors of mulch, dark stones, ash and snow.
Not only can Sims walk through Diggables, usable objects placed on top of them, such as chairs, remain both accessible to your Sim and functional, so go ahead and plant that beach chain in a mound of sand and relax under the sunshine.
Let your Sim dig into one of these mounds and discover a cool collectible or a handy source of spare cash. You can find a variety of goodies hidden inside, including, spare parts, figurines, fossils, even a little yellow fish which dropped into a fish bowl will eagerly spring back to life!
Looking for a bit of decor that will disrupt the unending flatness of Sims terrain? Sims will not interact with Diggable unless you click on them and command your Sims to dig. So, unless you do the mounds will stay untouched

Diggables make plants they are placed under look like they are actually springing from the soil, instead of just sitting on top of it. Diggables can create sand drifts for your beaches and mulch under your trees. They can even become snow drifts without Seasons. They are perfect additions to indoor and outdoor, holiday decor.

Give your terrain a new purpose and a new look. Add Diggables today!

Note: Click on the Diggable mound and press Dig to get your Sim to begin digging. Diggables will disappear once the Sim has finished digging. If you want to leave a mound behind after digging, stack two Diggables on the spot beforehand and the second one will remain.
If you want to retain the mound's ability to be dug, when placing objects over Diggables, make sure the object footprint only covers part of the Diggable, leaving enough space for your Sim.( see the illustrations above.)

If you have Seasons installed, Diggables will accumulate snow when it snows.
