Information (Click for more details):
This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
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 MTS2 - check the sidebar.
This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
I created the Parking Lot Supplemental Pack to compliment King13ps Parking Lot Packs that I used to create a grocery store parking lot. This supplemental pack includes a Standard Parking Block, Parking Lot Signage, and a Speed Bump. I have all expansions and stuff packs, but I tried to narrow down the exact expansions from which each of the clones I used came from. Take a look, try them out, and feel free to leave me suggestions and feedback.
The Standard Parking Block is a two-tiled object that covers three tiles. It sits just a bit away from the back of the tiles, just enough to leave room for a sign to fit. Also, I left the third footprint off in order to allow Sims to cross over the parking block so that when it is placed near a sidewalk they have an option to cross over it instead of walking around it completely. This item can be found under Decorative Sculptures and costs 25 simoleons per block. This item was cloned from Morphic to the Maxx and requires the Seasons expansion.
The Parking Lot Signage package contains six great parking lot signs reserved handicapped parking, ten minute parking, customer parking only, one hour parking, no parking, and a speed bump sign. This item can be found under Decorative Miscellaneous and costs 25 simoleons per sign.
These signs fit neatly with the Standard Parking Block. You will need to use the moveobjects on cheat in order to place them on the same block as the Parking Block in order to get the effect shown in my photo above. Look for more parking lot signage recolor packs to follow.
***The default sign is the handicapped sign. If you delete any of the signs, dont delete the handicapped sign or you will delete the entire Parking Lot Signage package. I am certain that the sign needs the Pets Expansion as it was cloned from a pet sign.
The Speed Bump comes in two colors, natural Maxis road tarmac color (which is a bit hard to see on my main photo) and a yellow caution color. Place these at the entrance to your parking lots along with a speed bump sign! This item can be found under Decorative Miscellaneous and costs 10 simoleons per speed bump. Cloned from Bowl of Fruit and should be base game compatible (please let me know if you find out differently, I couldn't locate my base game disk to test it out)
I have used King13ps parking lot packs to enhance my photos, you can pick those up from the links to King13ps packs listed below:

Standard Parking Block 615 Faces 389 Vertices
Parking Lot Signage 608 Faces 547 Vertices
Speed Bump 103 Faces 111 Vertices
Thanks to the makers of and ModTheSims2 owners for hosting all the great tutorials that have helped me with learning to create new items. Also a great big thanks to King13p for helping to inspire me with his great collection of parking lot floor coverings.
Feel free to use these in your MTS2 uploaded lots, recolor at will, and please link back here for mesh if your posting a recolor pack. If you want to edit the mesh, please do so but please give credit to the original mesh when you share.
