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.
Seems that in the game files there's plenty of "lost" paintings...
This one has been found by Havelock: hidden in the game, he has found not only the painting, but also the mesh to go with it.

I've just made a quick package and... here it is!

I remember seeing that, i'm sure - in very early screenshots of before TS2 was released.


Edit: I just looked through my saved pix from before TS2 was out, I knew i'd seen that picture before, looks like your version is reversed however!... here it is:

I really wish Maxis would explain why they leave so much content "hidden" in the game files. From the picture above this was clearly available in game before it was released so why the heck did they remove it?
