Well, it's a slow news day. By my unscientific guesstimation, submissions for Sims 2 are down 50-60% and site traffic for 3 is running 10 to 1 so I guess it wouldn't hurt to upload these.
Rocks are one of those things that just pop up all over my buy and build catalogs. Digging around for them just drives me crazy. When I want a rock, I want a rock, dammit. So I made myself a collection file, fairly comprehensive, then I decided to make one for vines, and then I got sick of it so please don't expect one for umbrellas or screen dividers or sideboards :-)
If you have any of the following items in your downloads folder they will just show up in the collection file. If you get them later, they will show up later. If you have some esoteric file I've overlooked you can add it yourself and keep updated. Or if you decide that now you have a collection, you can just go ahead and download every rock in sight, the following will serve as a guide. The rock collection does not include rocks that actually do things such as function as a bed or a table or a fountain.
