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 a pretty cool object pack. Random clutter is always good. I hate to be the party pooper, but the saw needs teeth. Also, can anyone actually stack the boxes? The upper ones just disappear for me.

(I moved them all from the plants category myself. xD)

Can't stack the boxes either. They look great, but they won't stack. Other stackables work fine, so no idea why. Hopefully we can get an update on those, because I could see myself using them a lot in storage areas!
