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 for Pets + Presets: The vases were fixed to work with patch 1.26 (came with Pets) or later. I also added some presets, so the vases aren't all white anymore (thanks to Inge's Texture Tweaker). The solid vases now have two options: The first preset makes all patterns shiny (for shiny geometric patterns) and the second preset is only shiny if the pattern is metal or likewise (for more versatility). They will replace the old versions of the vases.

UPDATE: A lot of object made problem since patch 1.6 /World Adventures, so I fixed my objects with Delphy's BlueLotObjectFixer. Please redownload! The names are the same as the names of the old ones, so the old files will be replaced. Vases already placed the vases in a house will stay.

This is a set of 7 different vase meshes for you! Each shape comes in a glass and a solid version and all of them are recolourable!

You can find them in buy mode under Decorative -> Miscellaneous. The vases costs 22§ each.

They are a bit shiny, except the solid version of "Myell" (didn't look good on this). You can use a lot of different patterns on them. Look at the pictures for ideas and be creative yourself!

The .rar-files are named like the pictures, so you can easily choose the ones you want.

In the pictures you see recolors I made ingame, by default the vases have a white color:

They also have nice sun shadows, so they look good if placed outside.
You can also see here that the vases are rather small, you can place a lot of them on a table.

(To place this flower vase inside my vase, I used moveobjects and a second table )

Patterns used in the pictures either came with the game or are by me:
Retro and Kids Patterns
Mixed Patterns (I especially recommend my glass pattern )

Polygon Counts:
Bandu: faces:98 vertices:87
Gabo: faces:122 vertices:132
Malua: faces:278 vertices:236
Myell: faces:62 vertices:76
Riccio: faces:30 vertices:52
Sala: faces:290 vertices:194
Sierra: faces:158 vertices:115

And to the people who made the tools, of course.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

I love these vases, but there's just one question about them!

How did you make the glass ones see-through?
