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.

justmoi's "Majestic Elegance"

This is the last painting mesh in my "Majestic" series. It is based on the "Arghist Soldier" with that beautiful big frame but I've made it into a 2-tile painting rather than the 1-tile original square. I've also updated it so that the frame is separate from the picture for mix-n-matching.

No expansion is required for the mesh. It costs $3000.

The mesh is colour enabled and you may recolour at will but please link back to this post for the original mesh. Feel free to post recolours on another site but please don't post the mesh - just link to this thread. And please do not post on pay sites.

According to SimPE, face count = 158 and vertex count = 228.

The mesh works fine in my game but please let me know if you have any problems with it in your game.

I've included 3 painting and 3 frame recolours with this post. I'll be posting 1800's French fashion recolours in a separate thread. I'll also try to post more frame recolours in another thread.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Great job! I'm really happy that you made "The birth of Venus" of Botticelli, one of my favourite paintings. Can I request "Primavera" - http://academic.brooklyn.cuny.edu/m...i-primavera.jpg

Thanks Jessica. I just came from your post and the paintings look beautiful - in fact all the pieces are gorgeous. I adore the pattern you used for the upholstery - it's so decadent!

I'll get it made tonight with a few others I have in mind and post it later or tomorrow morning.

Update: I've made "Primavera." You can find it at this thread: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=119909

The Waterhouse paintings are gorgeous. I bought my first Waterhouse print when I was about 19, in Richmond VA, almost 40 years ago, and still have it. The Lady of Shalott, my spelling might be off, as is my memory. Thank you.

I adore your frames, and downloaded all your Majestic collection and given them all matching frames, including a fancy white one to complete the set. It is a great idea to be able to display an entire home with a variety of matching painting sizes. But I still have a few pictures that are an odd size. The height fits into your majestic Elegance frame, except they are about half-three quarters a tile too short to cover the width. There is no room to vertically adjust the height. If possible, could I please request a resize to a smaller horizontal width of your Majestic Elegance mesh? I'll upload the white frame recolours to MTS2 if I have your permission and anyone is interested. Thanks.

Hi glacad, I'm happy to hear you enjoy the series. So from your message you'd like a mesh that's the same height as Elegance but about a 1/4 smaller in width, about a tile and a half of it's current size? If that's right, let me know and I'll try to get it done over the weekend. And please, go ahead and post your frame recolours, I enjoy seeing recolours of my meshes and have no problem with you posting them here.

glacad, I've made a test frame for your request. Is this about the size you want it or maybe a bit wider, narrower? Let me know what you think.

Here it is in comparison to the Majestic Elegance mesh.

Hi Justmoi,
A little wider thanks, approximately three quarters the origional length so it still is a rectangle shape, thankyou.

I made another frame called "Majestic Allure" that should be the right size for your painting. I've actually made a recolour of it using the image you supplied for you to see below. If everything is okay, the mesh should be approved in the next day or two.
