I always loved the topiaries from sims 4, but sadly they haven't been converted to sims 3 yet.
So this is my first batch of these topiaries conversion

I originally wanted to use the foliage shader so they can have a small wind blown animation, but they will have this weird shadow effect and really bad jitter. I believe this is because of their sims 4 mesh. So, I decided to use phong shader instead. Now they will have proper shadow and no jittering. They also don't have occlusion shadow, similar to other shrubs.
