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.
This is a very simple new object. But i believe it looks very good in "Open for Business" (perfect for a depot).

This are 5 cardboard boxes with signs (this side up, glass, handle with care) and mailing labels.

Polys: 30
Verts: 40
Price: 0 §

You can find this object under decorative / sculpture (misc.).

I hope you like it. Have fun! Please don't forget the THANKS button !!!


Update (2006-03-20): smaller files with DXT3-textures instead of RAW24bit-textures
Update (2006-03-19): better positioning of the object on the grid
Update (2006-03-16): fixed a problem with GUIDs.

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

Also good for sims just moving into a new home. These could sit around until furnishings are bought.

Anyone else who has gone through a move probably knows what it's like to be living out of cardboard boxes at first.

Good Job!

Default Good stuff!
Thanks a bunch. I use all your gear for my scrubby downtown lots, don't have OFB as I am in remote area. Hope you can make a usable container with a bit of rust at some stage. I can use it for poor people with the communal shower and some junk furniture to live in for under 20K.
