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.
That's right - high res. 3080 faces and more verts than SimPE can count. But it works flawlessly on my test box - a p-4 2Ghz, 1024 RAM, GeForce FX 5200, Win 2k SP-4.

Shown is the Antartica National Flag. Textures designed for simple recoloring. Please link recolors in this thread as credit to the author.

Links exchanged for lots including this object. "Hey, I like to see what y'all do with my stuff."

For the record:

Verts: Too Many
Faces: 3080
Permission to Recolor: Granted.
Permission to Redistribute: See Above.

Pax,
Indigo

Update: A minor error has been detected in the UV mapping coordinates. The Flag update will remedy this. This misalignment is not appearent on the Antartic Nation Flag, as it has no stripes.

Note on the Update: the updated object is default for United States National Flag (this is where I discovered the bug in the UV mapping).

German, Dutch (Nethelands), Lithuanian, and Austrailian are done.

I made these easy to recolor to let the community make their flag-of-choice... Maybe I should start charging for these ;-) j/k!

And if it's not too much trouble, a flag of Mexico? The seal doesn't have to be too detailed. Looking good though.

Just a little note regarding the level of detailing in these flags: They are all created from high-resolution images of the registered flags of the corresponding nations/states/etc, and as such, the various emblems, signs, and standards on them are as close to accurate as the object's scale allows. This is perticularly evident in the highly ornate flags, such as Tibet, Mexico and the United States. A careful eye and count will reveal 13 stripes and 50 stars. While some detail may become difficult to see, such as finely embroidered motifs or text, the greatest care is taken to perserve the original detail as much as possible.

Pax,
Indigo
