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.
Well due to a total lack of 'open flame' wall lighting, I was prompted to create one. The mesh is all hand extruded (arghh) so isn't one of the 'tidiest' in the world however the overall effect was what I wanted - an 'organic' or living statue.

Also as part of this package I have included several recolor subsets (4 body colors and 3 wing colors) all built into the package itself, so I apologies for the resulting .package being approx. 1MB in size

You are free to recolor this item if you like although I am unsure of how successfully any recolors will work. Initially (for me) anytime I included a seperate recolor package for it my game would crash but I now believe that was because I had not setup the MMAT correctly to start with.

Your results with this light may vary since I am very new to creating recolorable objects - but for those who are game this is the final result

EDIT: I'd like to thank IgnorantBliss for pointing me in the right direction when it came to adding the recolor subsets.

*lol* You're right - it does kinda look like that doesn't it I guess I should have taken the time to preview the final post before logging out yesterday Thanks for pointing it out and I have now updated the main image to a less 'decapitated' looking one.

Oh I didn't take it in a bad way *grin* but your observation was none the less correct and that isn't what I wanted shown on the main download page MUST remember that MTS2 takes the last uploaded img attachment as the 'to be displayed' one.

Thanks and glad you like it.
