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.
and now for something completely different
I'm not used to making modern stuff, but Lyric's very convincing, so
here's a modern beams build set.

It consists of two parts:
- the columns are cloned from the Open for Business connecting arches and have poly counts ranging from 100 to 158 faces (= ridiculously low)
- the angled beam is based on echo's meshes and can be placed pretty much anywhere, though you'll need the moveobjects cheat to place them on top of the arches. Poly count: 54 (= laughable)

Both come with recolours in light wood, white, black and granite.

You're free to recolour these and put them in your uploaded lots, provided you give me some credit.

Oooo! I like the look of these very much! My only complaint is that I needed these a few days ago on a house I just couldn't get right without them. Guess I'll revisit that floor plan now.
Thank you very much!

If you want to make this a zip file...
When you're just about to save + download, at the end of the name (e.g if the name was beam01.rar) change the rar to zip. So it would look like This is what I do with all my rar files and they turn out fine on Sims 2. Thanks for the beams too!

thank You for these and might i say (yes i may cause i'm gonna anyway) that with each new objects, creation and/or upload you give to us just continues to remind me why You are my favorite artist amongst the MTS2 community

in times of darkness seek out the light, but when that light becomes to bright, seek out the darkness it is your only escape.
