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.

***Update***

I fixed the thumbnails. Big thanks to hetterpooh and numenor for helping me find the problem.

Here's what you do:
1) Download and install the 'fixed' rarfile. The packages will overwrite the old ones.
2) Go to My documents\EA Games\The Sims2\Thumbnails
3) Delete the packages in that folder. The game will regenerate them when you boot.
4) Fixed thumbnails!




Hiya,

here's another little prop. To get good, overgrown looking gardens, there's tons of beautiful plants (mickyss, to name just one creator), but filling a lot with them gets hard on my little computer. So here's a set of low poly grasses.

The set consists of three meshes: Tall grass, Short grass and a sprig of grass
Poly count: 144 or less (sprig is about 50)
The short grass and sprig are slaves of the taller grass. You need the lethes-mesh-clumpgrass.package file installed for the others to work.
They come with a variety of thicker, thinner, healthy and sickly recolours.

Find them in Build/Garden center/flowers

All made with Blender, UV Mapper, Paint Shop and SimPE

Big squishy thanks to HystericalParoxysm, for recolours and inspiration.

I used to have some tall grasses a bit like these in sims1, how wonderful! I used them _all the time_ on my fantasy lots.

How wonderful! I keep bemoaning the lack of good accurate gardening tools - the ones included by maxis, so bland and artificial seeming.

Any chance of getting some low poly rocks of various sizes to go with the wonderful grass? rocks work very well to fill out a garden, and there just aren't really any available.

Default A slight issue
Maybe I'm some kind of D.A., but in my game catalog, 'Sprig of Grass' and 'Clump of Short Grass' are showing up blue, yet are working fine when clicked on and placed. (The 'Clump of Grass' shows and works fine.)
I just thought you might want to know...

Thank you also for all of your wonderful work!!!

hetterpooh,
hmm, that sometimes happens if not all packages of the set are installed on a first boot of the Sims.
one thing you can try is to go to 'my documents\EAGames\Sims2\Thumbnails' and delete the thumbnails package. The game should rebuild it.

I'll try it myself and see if the thumbnails are really screwed up. Not sure if I can fix it though.

I tried your suggestion, but to no avail. The two are still showing blue...
(I guess I should say that I deleted all the files inside the 'Thumbnails' folder, but not the actual folder itself... I figured that'd be what you meant.)
In any case, they still work and it's more of a 'cosmetic' thing so it doesn't really bother me too much... I still love them!

Francien, I think that's because the fileserver was split. You'll probably have to reset your cookies. Please check the sitenews for more answers

Your work is the best. I downloaded it a lot. Thank you very much. Because I employ a lot of your grass, I appear in an image of my download page. May I link to this page?

Aww, Lethe...

I must finally say thank you for these properly! I have used them a lot, and I mean a LOT!

I love all your work, but I think the grass is what I use the most.

Thanks in a million!

Do you have to water these? If not are you able to make the waterable where they get sick and stuff just like maxis flowers? Thanx
