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.
As per request by mmmboots9, I've extracted the Portrait of Will Wight from the YACAS screen; and while I was there, I took the chance to extracy a group of photos from the CAS screen, too

1) Will Wright painting: it's a recolour of the "Red vs. Blue Oil Portrait" from the base game (it's the painting with the red-headed girl shown in the picture, next to Will Wright's portrait); therefore, to select the portrait of Will Wright, you have to select the "Red vs. Blue" painting and then select the custom recolour you will find there (you need the CEP!).

2) The Grouped photos were extracted from the base-game CAS screen; the big picture on the left is a little blurry, but it's the original texture, don't blame me

Both objects work with the base game or in any other game.
Please note that - strictly speaking - the Portrait of Wil Wright was extracted from the UNI game, and therefore should be released as a UNI-only object. But in this special case, I made an exception to my posting rule, and made the painting available in the base-game too: it's a tribute to our hero Will Wright, and I don't think he will be annoyed if I want to give it to as many simmers as possible! :D

I was surprised as much as you, when I discovered - searching on the internet - that no one ever extracted the Portrait of Will Wright... What a shame!

Will Wright should be proud of you, Numenor, so everyone can have a pic of him in their sim's homes! Thanks again for more wonderful lost & found objects!

Will Wright, the father of Sims, will be proud of Numenor, the modfather. You know...having Will Wright photo is like having a your country leader's photo. The Sims owe it to you for that, hence me too.

This is great. Does this mean that we now have all the pictures from the CAS walls available in the game?

Thanks Numenor, it's good to have the Lord pic in sims houses, even if he has a strage expression in this shot.

I can't believe that Maxis doesn't note that love-demonstration. They should celebrate the day when the you discover this hidden file.

It could be that they were so hurried by the on-the-shelf-date (as suggested in other posts for CASwindow) that had to let something in the hidden part of the game. Or they just wanted to let you have something to dig for (not really lost&found, humm? just a challenge for you and gifts for us).
Thank you man, you're the best.

Let me clear up that this time, the objects were NOT left over by mistake: they are already visible in the Create-A-Sim screen, or in the University CAS. I only made them buyable...

I'm sure that Maxis is proud of the Portrait as much as we are :D
