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.
This monastery is loosely based on Asian mountaintop monasteries. The six pieces are:

1 monastic gazebo
1 dragon rooftop
1 small monastic dome
1 dragon gate
1 dragon arch
1 large mountain

Special credit to dewshine for making these colour enabled, you can download her recolours or post your own in the beta object recolour section here at MTS2.

The dragon gate was tough, use it sparingly and place it carefully to achieve correct effect. The large mountain will take some trial and error for you to get the best results as well. These are slightly more beta than my other object sets, because they are more complicated. (a side effect of this being they are also more beautiful)

As always, I will support these objects to the best of my ability, so let me know if there are any issues.

Thanks for testing,

Brasstex

Good news is that I have most of the set done. Bad news is I can't post attachments at the moment, so I'll try later.
Brassex, did you see the thread I started for recolors of your roof pieces?

Yes, I saw them, I actually liked the gold domes a lot. I can't edit my attachments or download my .rar either right now, I think it's just a thing with the server upgrade though.

Yeah I think so. Did you see the picture of the copper and white sets I did. I want to redo the gold with a gold shine. But I'll leave the "funky" domes up too.
Oh, I looked at the dragon roof in game...That's a right shiny gold dragon you did there, but you forgot to tell the game which envcube to reflect. I picked a high contrast one and added it to the file. Now it looks even better. And I think I have the gold set I'm working on figured out. These pieces you did are really pretty amazing close up.

Hi Brasstex

This is gorgeous! Thank you for your wonderful work. Whether you know or care or not your objects are the ONLY non-Maxis objects in my game!

Thanks again

These are enabled now. I have not made recolors for them this time, except for the Dragon roof base, the dome, and the pagoda roof which I include in the metallic roof color sets that I've done in white, copper, and gold. But alas I still cannot upload them so I'll just have to tease you with a picture...

Edit: we are back in business folks! here are the enabled files! (look for them in the first post, )

I still can't download or post attachments. As soon as I'm able I'll d/l these and post them at the top of thread. I do have a request, but I don't know for sure if you can do it. You know that green dragon on the arch? I was wondering if you could make it "shiny"? Maybe not so shiny as the domes, but kind of shiny? I don' t know, whatever, I love the work you've done with the recolours, thanks alot!

The recolourable package is posted at the top of the thread now. Looks like the picture attachments are showing up now too.

Brasstex

Okay, thanks for letting me know. The boat isn't finished yet, (no textures, or seats) but when it is I'll post it.

I'm suprised you could see that, that guy keeps wanting to get his picture taken! One of the many oddities roaming around on the island of Dr. Brasstex. (would you believe this guy's married to a mermaid?)

Brasstex

Do you want the original one shiny or a color option that is shiny? Would you like a custom green sheen or one of the default maxis sheens? (In short, yes I can...I can alter the original or make a color option that is shiny. I can even make something slightly shiny. It's all a matter of telling the game what do do.) :D

Yeah, a slightly shiny custom (green/red whatever) color option would be great! Thanks a lot dewshine.
