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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

EDIT: Oh. Wow. I am a huge lummox, apparently. I forgot to upload the pile of books and the pictures. Will someone shoot me every time I upload something, to remind me to actually include everything?? :D

'Ello 'ello. Last month's WNF aspiration set theme was gothic, and this was my addition to it.

This set requires no EP's, but the seating pieces are also available with pet interactions for those of you with the Pets expansion pack.

And, as you may have guessed, this set uses the repository technique for happy recoloring. The Arm Chair and the Pile of Books are required for the rest of the set's textures to work properly.

Aaaaaand, there's a lovely collection file so you can find all this in your catalog. Enjoy!

It's a wonderful. One of the best I come across so far, but like the poster above I;m missing the paintings and the pile of books.

Thank you Adele again and again. Your new set as always - is stunning.

I'v etried to search for the books and the soooo beautiful paintings, without success!

Sorry Stereo - where did you find the missing items?
Test Subject
#68 Old 31st Aug 2008 at 9:35 PM
Hmm, I'm not sure why the Google archive page wouldn't display for anyone so I found another link to the stuff as well through the WNF forums for all who can't open the Google pages site. You may have to sign up for an account on the forums, however.

Thread is here: http://wickednoukfamily.com/forums/index.php?topic=4.30

Or, if the link does not work, the thread path is: Wicked Nouk Family > Welcome! > Important Info and Stuff > Site Issues/Suggestions/Complaints
It's the last post of the thread by Nouk, Reply #40, the URL to the forums is: http://wickednoukfamily.com/forums.

You can download all the missing items from either the Google Archive page (if it loads for you) or the WNF forums.

Thank you so much Stereo, thanks for your kind help!
I found the missing files following your last link and you don't have to sign up, that's easy. Hopefully it works for everybody.

Special hugs to Adele for her great work and to you Stereo - you've made my evening!
