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.

Credits
I find myself in the odd position of crediting myself for this mesh. Ill do this to avoid confusion lol and maybe put a Mod The Sims banner on my other profile somewhere to link the 2 as ea don't do workshop support (not a bad thing) :-) its not as straight forward as it could be meh, anyhoo if the moderator would like to take a peek at MushroomHouse_02 on my steam workshop I left you a thank you :-), asking me to credit the original author has really made me glad I chose this site Losing credit for work does happen and I personally dont have the time to chase stuff.
In all honesty though I feel it fits better here, it always stood out a bit on a city scape lol was good for theme parks though. There is another mushroom mesh if this one gets a good reception Ill do the conversion for the other one I did too. Conversion may be the wrong term ended up remaking this lol.
The textures hand painted so a little blurry in spots but I felt it fit the object :-).

Why this is here...
This is a mesh I made for another title on request and well someone spotted a screenshot one thing led to another and now Im here :-). I wont mention the other title as this is a maxis orientated site and they make similar games to the one this object was originally made for.... my user name over there is stonedmonkeyboy hence SMB in my object titles here :-) I just havnt looked into changing my user name here. Due to issues with account security a little while back I dont do Steam workshop uploads anymore.

This conversion was a request (pm on another forum as someone had noticed I had released some of the things I was playing with and they wanted this shroom :-).
I have decided to put My sims stuff here though :-).

Default So Cute!
This is really a cute, and great garden addition. The tag calls it a sculpture/yard ornament. The picture shows what looks like light from the windows. Does this object have lights? If so, are they always on? It would be awesome to have it with lights that turn on and off. Also, a musical option, like music boxes have, with infinity looping that could be turned on or off. Something from the Nutcracker Suite? Maybe there would be a way to have the mushroom solar powered, so it turned itself on in the evening and off in the morning? Just a few ideas if you wanted to enrich this mushroom. Anyway, it's Super cute! Thank you for sharing this!

This is really cute :-) I'm trying to figure out if it somehow introduces anything else into my game....fairies? Who steals keys? Truly I never play the magical so just want to be sure this is CUTE but not a pain lol Actually, it's better than "cute"....it's adorable :-)

Hi Simorph. thanks for the feed back. I had a look at doing some of your suggestions in game. the shrooms already should follow the day night cycle for lighting. I made these purely as decorative (think plaster stuff you get from garden center) I was thinking along the lines of solar powered garden orniments when I implemented these for sims (and I can never find the switch, Im not good at reading instructions lol). I tried the power/water addition but feel due to asset size they get a bit cheaty.. Im making some treehouses they I feel are more appropriately sized for interactivity without altering game ballence to much, also Id like to make spacific items for things like water and power.
@Skanning thank you :-), these are more intro items while I test fesability on some ideas but at the least this will end up been a decent sized asset pack all along the same theme. I suppose as for purpose lol I didnt think beyond I needed an orniment to test placement for screenshots for the caravan so I used one I had sitting. The story is a just somthing to stick in the sales blurb :-).
