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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Per a request by i saw drones, I have made 7 new extendable arches.

These Arches can be extended to any width, 2,3,4 or more tiles wide They all have functional diagonals and a unique GUID.

My Extendable Touch of Teak French Arch can be found HERE .

My First Extendable Arch can be found HERE.

If you like my creation or effort, please hit the THANKS button. It only takes a few seconds

The Maxis Arches will require the listed EP's for them to show-up correctly in your game. They all use the repository technique so base object recolors will apply to the arches.
