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.
Smaller Plainlee Palm.
Just like its big brother but smaller. Looks good in groups together with the game's Plainlee Palm Tree.

The picture shows this Smaller Palm Tree next to its normal-sized brother.

Place in your My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads folder

Please report any successes/failures you encounter in gameplay with this object in the Beta Testers forum at ModTheSims2 -

It looks and works great in the game. Thank you for sharing. Does anyone know if it works with the EP?

i have the EP and the palm tree works absolutly great in my game.
i love to use it, cause it gives the outside of my lots a more realistic look.

and i would love to know, if the other smaller plant (the cactus) on the first pic showing is also awailable somewhere.

These are really great, I have had no interference at all! I am just hoping that you'll do the same with the birch tree and give us about three hights. Thank you for sharing this!!

(This is a very old thread, but here goes.) :)
Thank you, for a very nice and smaller palm tree that I really need for my ep0 Pirate Island! (In a pair or more, and at a distance, these look great!)

But I can not figure out the problem with the bark's texture?
Your leaves and the top of the tree look a bit dark, but perfect.
And then it seems to go a little crazy, beneath the top?

Excuse me, but did you remap the texture to your smaller tree?

*** Later, I did a couple of texture changes. And even pure white (2 LIFO and 1 TXTR) test-textures had your tree's bark still using the original tree's bark and even the leaves tried to appear, close-up?

Sorry that I could not help, mate.
