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.

Hello everybody!

I’m Russian, so it would be natural to present you something Russian.

I was inspired to create this set time ago by visiting a small village nearby Moscow, where we often spend weekends. Every time we are there I completely discharge batteries in my camera by taking enormous amount of pictures of the country houses. They are just amazing!

Most of the Russian country houses are made of wood and not very variable in layout. As a rule they are just a single-storey simple frame. But they do have special architectural features that make them just a piece of art. The frames of windows and doors, ridgepole of the roof, the pediments are embellished with gorgeous paintings or carved wood, and look just like wooden lace! Carved sculptures for the ridgepole, often in the shape of a hen or a horse, have the function of protecting inhabitants of the house from illnesses, thieves, fires and evil forces.

My set consists of a few embellishments for the house, two courtyard structures and 3 wooden wallpapers with top and bottom panelling.

Please use “moveobjects on” cheat to place all the objects except for the angle and wall log stumps.

A hint: if you want to place a roof gable on a veranda roof, first construct a wall, then create the roof, place the gable, and delete the wall under the roof.

All objects are created on the base game ones, so no EP required, and colour-enabled.

You can find architectural decorations in the Wall Decorations directory, and courtyard structures in the Sculptures.

You are welcome to recolor my objects, but please link back to me. Don’t upload any of my stuff to the exchange or any paysites.
