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.
Due to requests of some things to put in your garage, I made this set!

This clutter set includes 9 new meshes, all of which are recolorable besides the bags of mulch.
Here is a list of the objects:
- Paint Can - $5 - Located in Decor/Misc.
- Stackable Box - $1 - Located in Decor/Misc.
- Bag of Mulch - $5 - Located in Decor/Misc.
- Wall Mulch - $5 - Located in Decor/Misc.
- Hammer - $3 - Located in Decor/Plants.
- Sponge - $1 - Located in Decor/Plants.
- Pot - $5 - Located in Decor/Plants.
- Hand Saw - $5 - Located in Decor/Plants.
- Gasoline Can - $5 - Located in Decor/Plants.

Enjoy! I might be making some more stuff like this soon. Have a good one!

Polygon Counts:
- Paint Can - Faces = 180 Vertices = 247
- Stackable Box - Faces = 2 Vertices = 4
- Bag of Mulch - Faces = 120 Vertices = 62
- Wall Mulch - Faces = 120 Vertices = 62
- Hammer - Faces = 166 Vertices = 264
- Sponge - Faces = 52 Vertices = 28
- Pot - Faces = 290 Vertices = 184
- Hand Saw - Faces = 146 Vertices = 76
- Gasoline Can - Faces = 460 Vertices = 325

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.

This is great! I remember putting desks and toy machines in Sims 2 for garage clutter. Now I don't have to with Sims 3. Thank you :-)

Someone beat me to mentioning the lawn mower, but that's okay! Great job! Thanks!

Thanks for sharing!!! You can never have enough clutter. Where did you get those cabinets? Or are they part of the set and I'm missing it? Also as someone posted above, a garden set would be fabulous FP

Very awesome, but do you think you could update them all to be in the "Decorative->Misc" category? They aren't really plants...

Hey! Thanks for the mod!


Garage Hammer in "Plants" Category?

Can you please fix it and move the non-plant items into the Misc category?

All the garage themed items must be placed in Misc Category. :P

I am not gonna download this mod until non-plant items are moved from Plants Category to Misc Category. When this is fixed I will come and blow you a big kiss!

Just all I need is to have all the CC well-shorted as we have so many expansions forward the future to wait for and that will add tons of new items... So, good categorization is highly adviced...

Give me all the clutter you can think of! I love it. I'm a newbie but plan to try some more clutter for my garden shed. (Why would EA come up with an elaborate garden plan and no utensils for gardening?) If I come up with anything worthy, I'll upload it and would love your input...

When I try installing some of the clutter, Helper Monkey says a few of the items are "Corrupt (TXTC)". What does that mean?

Awesome! I was looking for that for my lot! Does anyone know if there are any pose boxes for the Sims 3 out there yet? I've seen cool poses in Sims 3 Machinimas but I can't seem to find any.
