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 fixed the thumbnails. Big thanks to hetterpooh and numenor for helping me find the problem.

Here's what you do:
1) Download and install the 'fixed' rarfile. The packages will overwrite the old ones.
2) Go to My documents\EA Games\The Sims2\Thumbnails
3) Delete the packages in that folder. The game will regenerate them when you boot.
4) Fixed thumbnails!


here's another little prop. To get good, overgrown looking gardens, there's tons of beautiful plants (mickyss, to name just one creator), but filling a lot with them gets hard on my little computer. So here's a set of low poly grasses.

The set consists of three meshes: Tall grass, Short grass and a sprig of grass
Poly count: 144 or less (sprig is about 50)
The short grass and sprig are slaves of the taller grass. You need the lethes-mesh-clumpgrass.package file installed for the others to work.
They come with a variety of thicker, thinner, healthy and sickly recolours.

Find them in Build/Garden center/flowers

All made with Blender, UV Mapper, Paint Shop and SimPE

Big squishy thanks to HystericalParoxysm, for recolours and inspiration.

Excellent! I really love nice full gardens & yards ... but like you say, it is easy to overdo with many of the beautiful plants available.

I can never get too many plants! And I really like ones like this, filler in certain areas but also essential for that neglected or more natural look. Thanks!

It felt great filling my whole garden with these. The old ones I was using had a polycount of about 900-1700, so I resticted them on my lots.
Looks TERRIFIC...Thankyou!!

These are great!! I love getting new plants, especially good that they're low poly, can really make an overgrown garden then without bringing the pc to a grinding halt!

Can these be included in uploaded lots?

I like that... I already have some other grass, but only high poly, so this is a lot better
