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.
Low Garden Fences
A couple of fences that I used alot in TS2 and missed for TS3. While TS3 did include a bamboo fence, it looks like some cheap plastic knockoff and doesn't resemble bamboo at all IMO. The first preset for the Cut Stump and Bamboo is an overlay that uses the texture from TS2 and is not CAStable. The second preset is CAStable but the cut stump fence has some heavy shading to keep the woodgrain and the rope on the bamboo fence is not CAStable. The third fence is a small rock edge border that has one channel and one preset.

Technical Bits
  • ยง3 (Cut Stump & Bamboo) ยง4 (Rock Edger)
  • Build/Fences
  • 1 Channel
  • 2 Presets (Cut Stump & Bamboo) 1 Preset (Rock Edger)

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
