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 "Orchestra"

"Can't get the paintings straight? Can't get them aligned properly? Then let this do-it-yourself grouping do it for you. Paintings will be aligned perfectly everytime!"

Hi again. Here's another combination of paintings I've come up with. It closely matches my "Symphony" mesh and I plan on making the same frame recolours for both meshes. I think they look great in a conservatory but I'm sure everyone will find other great places to use the mesh. Hope you like it. The frame is separate from the picture so you can mix-n-match.

No expansion is required for the mesh. It costs $1825 and has a room rating of 8. According to SimPE, face count = 740 and vertex count = 1064.

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.

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

I've only included 1 painting recolour and 1 frame recolour with this post but I plan on making more in the future if you're interested. They are separate *.package files so you can delete either in-game without problems.

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

I'll try to make more this weekend if I find enough matching pictures but I'm having fun with my latest mesh which is a triptych. I've got the basic mesh completed but I want to the make the 2 wings stick out from the wall a bit. Here's a screenshot for an idea of what it'll look like - let me know what you think.

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.
