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.
Requested by BrokenLit
As it happened that I have such a waterwheel/millwheel from my first tries to make objects I want to offer it here. I hope it will do so far! It's wall hanging and in a deeper position so that you can have water under it. (s. pictures)

OFB is needed! (I think so, because of my configuration, but you can try if it works with other installations)!
To install the object unpack the .rar-file to your download folder. To uninstall just delete it!
You can find the object under decorative/miscellaneous.

faces=840 - vertices=1454

This object may be recoloured and used by housebuilders in their lots as long as the mesh and the copyright isn't changed and you upload your creation on this side, too.
Don't upload it to the exchange, any other site is welcome.

Much fun with the millwheel, hexameter.


This object is made with SimPE, MilkShape, UV-Mapper and PaintShopPro.

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

This is so cool! I'm currently building an old-fashion type neighborhood in my game, and this is going to go great. Thank you.

SQUEEE!!! This is so pretty! I'm also in the process of building a medieval neighbourhood!

Could I please pretty please *puppy-eyes* ask for a bigger version of it? About 2-3 storeys high, like the one in "Pirates of the Carribean 2"? (No, I won't ask for a fighting Captain Jack Sparrow on it. Honest. Though if you could provide one... *insane grin*)

Oh, nifty! Maxis doesn't really make much for rustic / medieval games, so that makes this work extra special!

I know this is an old object but I thought I'd try anyways. I'm having trouble keeping the waterwheel after hitting the "live" or play button, it disappears. Am I doing something wrong?

I think the problem depends on the installed EPs. As I didn't exclude my EPs while I was cloning the base object this version will only show in the catalog with the EPs described in the information.

Awesome work! I've been planning to build a house that looks like an old steamship. A "side-wheeler" or maybe a "stern-wheeler" to be exact. I'm not sure which one I''ll do... yet. All the ship-shaped houses I've seen kinda inspired me on this idea. Only problem was - I had no wheel for my steamship (til now)! Thank you very much for this!
