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.
We welcome you to our friendly, little town! Thanks for stopping by!

When creating Greymont Bay, I really wanted a charming town sign and none of the signs included in any of the EPs fit, not even with an image override. So I meshed my own, using bits from the base game welcome sign and the library sign from Supernatural. I took care when doing presets that the presets for each town fit with the aesthetic of the world they belonged in.

  • Name: Town Welcome Sign
  • Price: 1200
  • Found in:
    • By Function: Decor > Statues
    • By Room: Outdoors > Lawn Ornaments
  • Channels: 4
  • Presets: 7 (different town overlays for each)
  • Polygon Counts:
    • High: 554
    • Low: 241

* For those that would like to edit the sign for any other worlds that don't have presets included, either EA or custom, I have also included the PSD file for the overlay (if you want it to match, of course). When finished, you will need to resize it and create a new preset using your overlay and a program such as TT3, but I figured I could at least help out with getting you started!
For the overlay, you will need the following 2 fonts by @Franzilla : Old Book Smell and Mortimer Square Solid
If you do create new presets for this sign, you may upload them, on the condition that you clone as a unique item to avoid conflicts and link back to the original for credit.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

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.
