The Little Red Rose

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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This time I bring you a small glass vase with a red rose and another with some palm leaves, to decorate your sim rooms.
Took me a few tries to get this right
I'm still only recycling game meshes, so I stole the vase from the Narcissus, the leaves from the Perma Palm and the rose from the Sunflower Vase (with my rose recolor, see here).
Both are in the Plants category and cost 40§.
Enjoy!


Polygon Counts:
Red rose: 240 faces, 181 vertices
Palm leaves: 431 faces, 280 vertices

Additional Credits:
The pillow in the screenshot is from Summer Afternoon.

and a huge big thanks to Wes for the help!! If you're not there I wouldn't be uploading anything now.

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.

Adorable!! Thank you!

The prospect of a long day at the beach makes me panic. There is no harder work I can think of than taking myself off to somewhere pleasant, where I am forced to stay for hours and 'have fun'.

No it doesn't, it's just a kinda see through almost invisible vase. No flower or anything. Just like BastDawn. I thought downloading this would change it but it just does the same thing. It makes me so sad.

Strange. It seems then that this issue is something within the game, and not something I did (or didn't do)...

No it's not your fault. It worked for a while, but maybe it has something to do with the patch I have? Or downloading awesome and indie mods? Whatever it is it's so annoying.

Awesome Stuff! I love that you're working with plants. I definitely wish I had more in the game. What I'd really like to see though is a tut from you if you have the time or inclination for us noobies in meshing. You talk of taking from this and that, but Milk only lets me open one file at a time, are you saving each file individually then recompiling them altogether? And how are you deleting what you don't want? I'm very sorry, these prob seem like stupid questions, but I would very much like to add some more hanging smaller stem ferns, etc., but don't have a clue! Have been following the cloning tut, but am still kinda stumblin through that. Any shortcuts would be greatly appreciated. Again, thanks for the creations though! At least I'll be able to download your pretty plants! LOL!

Lemoncandy, these creations of flowers are really great (as all your stuff is). I really loaded down everything you made. Your lots are tasteful, comfortable and made with great love to details and cour "clutter" really makes the environment of the sims "alive". I really thank you very, very much.

Yeah a few of your items (rose in vase, bowl with fruit) don't show up in my game either... Just the vase and the bowl. It has to be some sort of game issue. But they are lovely things, great job Keep up the good work

I love this!

:[ but the glass vase shows up empty now. when I first downloaded it, it showed the rose. Hmmm. I'm going to download and overwrite and see if that'll fix it. Anyone else having this problem?

It's the opposite for me. I just got a new graphics card and tried the vase again, and now it works for me when it didn't before. Did you change your hardware or your drivers recently?

Always choose short hairstyles for your clothing models!
My Sims 1 stuff is still available, because some still play the original game.

This is such a cute little vase to use as a centerpiece on a small table!

But is it updated for the Pets Patch?
