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.

Dewshine, has now made the fair objects recolourable! I have added that package below, it's the same as my original, but recolourable. Thanks again to dewshine! Especially nice are the banners and flags, and the tent and linen objects. Any further recolours may be posted in the beta objects recolour forum here at MTS2. Nice work dewshine! these work well and look great!

I'm sorry but I don't have winzip, so I can't. If you really want to I'm sure you could search google and find a free .rar extractor.


PS, many .rar extractors also unpack .zip files, so once you go .rar, you don't have to go back.

Kimdelee, It might be your graphics settings. The "fair" banner is slightly fuzzy even at high settings. the "Farmer's Market" banner is clear word wise but the veggie pictures around it are fuzzy. The cause of this is how the graphics are used by the banner. I can make additional banners that are simple in color, with high-contrast words and no images if you like. Perhaps with just single words like "Faire", "Market", "JunkYard'....Do you happen to have a request?
...As for the register problem...I'm not aware that anyone has come up with a new mesh for that. I was hoping that the Uni expansion would have additional registers, but Maxis did not include any. I could do a wooden recolor of the register so that it blends better if you like.

I don't know why, but when I download this and put the file in my downloads folder, it doesn't show up in my game. I download the .rar file, and once it is finished, I put it in my folder... is there something else I should be doing?

SiriusWillRetrn, rar files do not go into downloads. you need a rar extractor like winrar. You can get it free, just do a search on the web for it. The package files inslde the rar file go into downloads. You will see the package files once you have WinRAR and can open the rar file. The easiest way to get the package files into the right folder is to highlight, drag and drop. You will then find this set in build and in community appliances under shopping. I hope this helps you.

Really? .rar files huh? that is odd. I just downloaded it again it make sure that I didn't make a mistake with the compression and am seeing package files and image files. There are a bunch of files in there though. 33-35 of them in fact. that's because when I finally got the pieces recolorable I made several options for each one. Could it be that somehow the file associations in your computer got messed up? are the extensions you are seeing .rar or .package? Or are you noticing that the icon for both package and rar files are the same? You could try downloading SimPE. the install process will associate .package files with that program and change the icon. Or you could look in your downloads folder and see if those also have the same icon.
Reason I mention the icon is that .Package files are compressed. in a way they are a lot like .rar files so it is possible that the association got messed up.
If this is not the case try opening the rar and moving the files into another folder....or look for sim file maid 2.

Sorry it took me awhile to reply....

Let's see requests....I have a "clothier" and a "dry goods" seperate. Couldnt think of enough different areas to make a whole little section of the neightborhood be the whole marketplace.

And yes at least a wooden register would blend in better than the grey metal one. LOL Many thanks!
