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.
MTS is happy to once again bring you the official calendar, comprised of winning images from our annual calendar contest!

Object Info:
  • Catalogue Location: Decorative -> Wall Hangings
  • Price: §50
  • Shiftable on wall
  • 2 channels: channel A does nothing (allows changing of preset), channel B recolors pushpins
  • Polys (hi/low): 130/8
  • New mesh: combination of Modern Painting and Goth Painting (same as previous years)

As with the previous calendars, this one functions as a manual preset rather than forced by the changing of the seasons. If you do have Seasons and have each season enabled and set to the minimum of 3 days, you'd have a 12 day calendar. However, it's entirely up to you how many in-game days each month lasts and therefore under your control when you change the presets. When you're ready, use CAST to choose the next image in the presets (or be a rebel and choose them at random!) without the need to rebuy a new object, saving your sims §550 over the course of a year! Thrifty, eh?

The pushpins are recolorable for each of the presets. The default preset color has been chosen to complement its corresponding image but feel free to change them to whatever your sim's heart desire. Patterns are not recommended as the surface area is too small to make them out.

This calendar does not overwrite previous years. You can have all of them in your game at once. Whether your sims are hoarders and never get rid of anything or you really just like the pictures, you can keep all versions in your game with no problems. Do make sure to clear your caches first though, including thumbnails, to make sure it shows up right in the catalog.

Special thanks and congratulations go out to all of our winners:

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.
