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.


Hi,

These meshes are from TS2 University. I modified them to make five 2 storey columns to TS3. We can now build beautiful arches in our beloved game to make incredible castles, WA tombs...

So this set contains five parts : "cross", "T", "right", "repeat" and "end". Each part costs §340 and can be found in the Columns section.

N.B. :
- these columns act like 1 storey columns.
- the columns are recolourable (one channel).
- No EP is needed.

Have fun ,

Jim.

Polygon Counts:
Cross: 1872
T: 1570
Right: 1320
Repeat: 1296
End: 1054

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

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.

It's great, but I could really use a single story version of the set.

You have to put the files in Documents\Electronic Arts\Les Sims 3\Mods\Packages.
And you will find the columns in the Column section of the Build Mode.

I've seen a lot of people ask for a 1-story version of this awesome set. Which makes me wonder, how hard might it be to "downsize" smth? For all the modders out there: Can someone with 0 modding experience do it (downsizing them that is)?

Unless Jim already did it - cos I can't find them :3

Still struggling with CAW :x

Hi,

I finally made, for your greatest pleasure, a 1-story version of this set. It was not difficult to do but it needed time... Sorry for this long waiting.

The 1-story version is currently in the moderation queue.

Jim.

Really pretty but a bit intimidating. I'm downloading for another build but may have to try them out of my own, even though I fear I will fail miserably!
