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.
Made per request. Fake decorative mailbox, trashcans, and trash piles. No expansion packs required. Found under sculptures. "View" option is removed. You can place them on locked tiles without a cheat code, will work even with OFB.

Fake mailbox and trashcan will use all the recolors of the original ones if you have them in your game. See this thread for mailbox recolors. CEP required. Don't use these instead of the real mailbox and trashcan. Trash piles will not lower room score.

Do not to upload these files to any other site. You are welcome to use them in lots submitted to MTS2 or TSR.

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

Thanks! Now I can make mini trailer parks and each one can have a "real" mailbox and trashcan. Good job! :D

Really sloppy Sims can already eat out of the garbage... but I can see how a Trash Can table would be really funny! Good idea!
... Add some old overturned boxes as chairs ...

Thanks Windkeeper, this will be perfect for behind restaurants in OFB

Not buying TS4 until Terrain Sculpting is back and cheatless Split Levels are added!
Here's an idea: Stairs Pitch Slider.

Please don't post request. I made this one because it gave me a chance to do something quick and easy for a change. Helped to get a break from my other projects which I do have plenty. Post your requests in the Request forum and someone will help you .

This is great; only yesterday I was wishing I had some piles of trash and a garbage can that matched the Maxis one. The different positions for the garbage can are really creative. Thank you!

this is very cool, the fake mailboxes will be good when trying to make lots with multiple houses in one

Thank you very much for this and all your great work.

I don't mind if you call me "MSD" or something for short.
Perhaps someday I'll have leisure time back...

I'm not sure what I'll use this for, but thanks for it anyway! I'm sure that any future extreme slob Sims of mine who hate roaches will be very happy with this.
