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.
I was supposed to be 3 weeks into a 3 month trip by now, but due to various medical problems I am still at home...but planning to make a shorter trip June 12-July 10. Meanwhile, I have been messing (or meshing) around trying to update some of my older meshes using Wes H's UniMesh* plugin. While looking for the base for my old girl's shorts mesh I discovered a Maxis mesh cfBottomShorts, which I, at least, have never seen anywhere in my game. I therefore salvaged it and have uploaded it here, in three colors and with 3 mix and match tops to go with the shorts.

Just in time for your Sims little girl's summer fun.

As always, feel free to recolor, revise and post my meshes, as long as you give me credit for the original mesh. or in this case finding the mesh...or if someone else has found it first, give them the credit

Please DO NOT post my meshes at pay sites or The Sims Exchange.

*UniMesh, fixes the problems of gnarly upper arms, dark shadows on hems, and several other mesh problems. My meshes made with UniMesh also have the fat, and where appropriate, pregnant, morphs.

So sorry to hear about the health problems and your trip being shortened. I want to give you a big (*(*(*(*Hug*)*)*)*) for finding these shorts. I never understand why they leave out the best stuff for our games. Thank You.
