I build an adventure with a Buddhist temple. Therefore, I needed a Buddahstatue. I knew I had a model somewhere and eventually I found it. The problem was that there were over 100 000 polygons so I had a hard work to reduce the mesh.
The original mesh from and their models are for "Free Noncommercial Use".

There's two recolorable channels. The mapping is far from perfect and you must try different patterns and adjust the saturation to get something looking good.
It's a 2x2 tile object and the footprint is adjusted so sims can't walk through parts of the Buddah.

You find the statue among the other statues in the catalogue and it cost 10000$.

Well, hope someone can use it.


Polygon Counts:
It's still very high polygone counts but I couldn't reduce it more and keep the details. So there is 6303 vertices and 10601 faces.

Additional Credits: for the original mesh, the developers of S3OC and s3pe, and all the marvellous autors of different tutorials here and there. Without you I couldn't make anything at all for the Sims 3.
