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.
Here's a tree, requested by JLonier, designed to go over roads like in the pics It was kinda tough to make, tree limbs are pretty hard for me to get the hang of... the tree may seem a little lopsided, but that's on purpose to try to cut down on the polys. If you want a bigger fuller tree just double it up (like in the third pic) using moveobjects on and it looks real good. I do hate the bark, that's another thing that was a big pain, and everytime I tried to improve it, it just got worse and worse.....

Polygon Counts:
1412

Additional Credits: SimPE JLonier for the great idea

Nice tree! Maxis trees are much too small. Biggish reminds me of Katamari Damacy...

I have the base game only and it didn't show. I'm redownloading it one more time just to be sure. Are you positive it's base game compatible?

I am sooo glad you made these! I often thought how cool it would be to have really big and tall trees to line our residential streets! Thank you for sharing your wonderful talents with us!

Lovely work! I've wanted more and different trees for a long time. Plus this one is a low file size. Thanks so much!

Trees are tough work. Great job on this.

I am so greatful that you thought of making these trees! I had built a replica of Oak Alley Plantation in Louisiana (where Interview With A Vampire was filmed) and needed some trees that hang over a road for the entrance drive to the house. Your trees will work so well! Thank you.

This tree is so big and beautiful it hangs over into the next lot and still looks great from there. Almost seamless like Sims 3 :-). I used it in my last lot upload. Thank you, thank you.

Trees as in all things in nature none are exactly symetrical, I know I am a Bonsai Master, I would like to say I like the design but what species is it?
Did you have a particular in mind when you made this one/ I would love to see a 20-25 foot Maple one about 2 feet round and another about 4-5 feet round. Those remind me of the one's in my front yard when I was a kid. I am no good with polys or any 3d stuff I am 1 dimensional LOL, Thanks so much for the GREAT tree!! James

Great tree Khaki, I was wondering if you felt up to a challenge would you make a 2 story American White Maple for me, I lived in a little house in the city and when I was growing up we would play in the branches of the two trees in our yard, one was quite huge round and the other was close to 2 and half feet round I would guess the bigger tree was 4-5 feet round if I had to guess at it. I have already built my childhood home in game and all I need are the trees. I appreciate any help you can offer, Thanks.

It's a lovely tree. Real trees aren't perfectly symetrical anyway.
