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.
18 JAN 2006 - A new, animated version of this Snow Globe can be downloaded HERE.

--------------------------------------------

Thanks to Jenvar's input, I've extracted and rebuilt this hidden Broken SnowGlobe. The first time I've looked at it into my game I gasped: the two little statues inside were Bella and Mortimer Goth! How sad! I'm sure that this is an object the Mortimer has thrown away after Bella left him and disappeared, and now I've brought it back from the past...

However, what is done is done. Here it is. It's a plain decorative object, quite small indeed. I'm posting the snapshot #3 just to show the dimension of the globe compared to the table.
You can find it under Decorative / Sculpture, at a price of §10.
Obviously I've made it recolourable: the statues and the golden base are recolourable separately.

CREDITS:
Maxis for mesh and textures;
Jenvar for having found the textures;
Numenor (that's me! :D) for having built a working package for it (and for the colour-enabling...)

P.S.: I've found also 4 animations related to this object ("grasp" and "carry"), but there were no references about how toapply them to the object...

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

Fantastic job again of course-
Lost items means maxis didnt finish these in time for release of the game- so most of the file are in the game- unfinished and not accessable unless of course youre a genius like numenor

Aw... this is beautiful and heartbreaking. *Sob.* Makes me think of all the happy times I spent on my sister's copy of the Sims 1... Until I broke the disc.

Thank you sooo much. This is really cool.

Wow, very awesome. A great addition to the Goth's house. Next time, can you Re-Mesh it to make it unbroken?

Numenor...what a great keepsake! Perhaps Bella wants Mortimer to move on...but with this around...he can bask in his sorrows with a keg of beer...and kick that youngin' Celeste to the curb...she's just after his fortune...you know.

We love it.

Thanks. I don't think Mortimer would have to be mad to break this thing. Think about it.....Bella didn't really leave him, she was abducted (or at least that's what Maxis wants us to believe.) Looking at the snowglobe, an obvious celebretory present, Mortimer more than likely was filled with grief remembering Bella and not sure when (or if) she would be returned. Such feelings can make people throw things. As far as the "hold" and "carry" options you found, I think that it was in a sense similar to the teddy bear (youngsters hold and carry teddy bears and it helps their mood. However I think this was made exclusively for the Goth household.) Thanks again. I'll download this and wait for the options to be put in. It would be interesting to see what one can do with a snowglobe.
