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.
Hello peeps,

here's a new object I'd like you guys to test: Artistic kiddy clutter
All help/comments/criticism are appreciated, since this is my first mesh (well, not really, but I didn't want to bore you with a boombox )
The mesh was made in Milkshape 3D, imported with the MTS2meshtool and SimPE 0.33.
It has a unique GUID and should work in both versions of the game. (please tell me if it doesn't!)
A big thanks to JWoods for his much-needed tutorial. :howdy:

The details:
The sketchbook and crayons are a one-tile decorative object, they can be placed on the floor or on a table.
Price: 35 Simoleons
Room score: 3
Poly count: 866 (triangles, pretty low)
Sims cannot interact with it, find it in Misc/All

You're free to recolour this and post the recolours on a site, provided you give the link to the mesh here, and you tell me all about it.
It's recolorable with normal Simpe, but not with the wizard. I don't know why that is. It worked perfectly at some point during creation, but now it doesn't anymore.. I vow to one day find out why and correct it
If, for some reason, you want to host the mesh on your site, ask me.
Since it is a beta, please do not put this object in a downloadable lot.

The package:
The one with the 'house' is the base. I included two recolours, a pastel,
um, princessy thing (my artwork, can you tell? ) and a grown up version for all those artist simmies out there.

Ok, enjoy and please let me know how they work out for you.

Aw, this is adorable. Even if it's just decorative I am sure it will look good just for show and for stories at some point. Thank you. :-D

Awesome! love all your stuff. Any chance you could make it clickable, I had an idea. There is a way, if you get your sim to read a book then cancel the action they place the book on the floor. After that delete the book shelf and that book now becomes just like a book shelf. You can do all the actions of a book shelf with out the shelf. take that book and mod it to look like the sketchbook then you can wright in diary or book of shadows and it will be like your sim is sketching a picture. May need some tweaking but i think it could work.

Get WinRAR. You don't have to pay for it, even when it says you do, just x the thing out and keep downloading. ;3
