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.
EDIT 29/11/2009.
These objects became broken with the patch 1.6.6 and the expansion and caused the "blue lot syndrome". I have fixed them now so if you still want to use them with World Adventures, please re-download.

I really missed the potted plants of The Sims 2, so I decided to convert them. It's not as simple as it sounds but I managed somehow
So here are four Sims 2 plants, the "Fig Tree" (which looks nothing like a fig tree imo), the "Simulated Succulent" and two bonsais.

They are in Decorative/Plants in the catalog and each cost 80§.
You can recolor the pots. Have fun!

Polygon Counts:
Bonsai Round: 793 faces, 685 vertices
Bonsai Blue Sky: 752 faces, 492 vertices
Fig Tree: 733 faces, 794 vertices
Succulent: 1038 faces, 812 vertices

Additional Credits:
The Object Tool, S3OC, S3PE, SimPE, The Sims 2.

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.

Thank you so much for fixing. I wouldn't be able to call my homes "homes" without your plants.

I was thrilled to see that they work again for WA - thank you so much for all your hard work on these. Actually, I love all your creations. Very nice quality and they add a lot of style to my game. Thanks again!

Thank you so much for converting these for WA (and for sharing them in the first place). I don't think I've ever had a Sim who didn't own that fig tree, so it's great to be able to keep it in my game. :-D
