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.
A flag-pole with animated flag to add some realism to your houses - Decorative item only!
The pole & flag are subsets and can be recolored separately.
The flag-animation is an 8 frame texture animation(512x256 pixel - See attached gif-animation) - Sorry I so wish that I knew how to create a mesh animation, but I'm not that good... Yet!

Frillen-FlagPole01.zip is the mesh-file containing the following color-options:
Flag-pole with and without concrete foundation + flag and no flag!

Frillen-FlagPole01-RecolGolden.zip is a pole recolor package containing a flag-pole with and without concrete foundation.

Frillen-FlagPole01-49FlagRecolors.zip contains 49 animated flag package files - 24 European national flags, 16 other world national flags & 9 misc flags.
Most of these can be seen on the attached picture.
I'm sorry that I can't deliver a national flag for every nationality, too much work & too little time!


Mesh-info:
Faces=428
Vertices=412

You may:
Create recolors & upload them, but remember to link to this mesh!
Use it in a house & upload your house to any site as long this object is a part of your lot!

It's about 2.5 stories high, which should be perfect for most normal family houses since flag companies says that a flag pole normally should be between 0.5 & 1 story higher than the house.

However I'm considering creating 1 or 2 sizes more which will be able to use the textures from this pole

BTW Thank you for your nice replies

If your redneck sims are true to their roots they will forgive me since I got the flag images from this flag site here: (check the rebel flags under historical flags)

Thanks a lot for all those nice words
Can't really say why they didn't feature it, only the staff knows!
Maybe because animated flags has been done before by others :D

Hello frillen,

thanks a lot for your flags. I´m very interesting in flags and i allways wanted to have a flag for my Sims. You told that i can recolor the flag. With which Programm i can recolor the flag. I want to recolor some russian flags (before 1917). I think my recolors are allowed to create them.

But thanks a lot for your flags.

Regards
Alexej

omfg! when i got it i was like cool, but then i was just playing and had to tell everyone: from the neighborhood you can see the flag waving, it's realy awsome! thanks so much!

my personal life can be supported by veiwing this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-n2z-Q6x6eU and others on my youtube page. I believe there's a few building tutorials there aswell. I create rather sporadically, so excuse me if I'm gone from this website for months or years at a time.
