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.
SIMple Pleasures requested an ornate gold frame to fit over the canvas paintings for her legacy family portraits; I thought it was a great idea. These are large, ornate, empty frames that are designed to be placed over the regular paintings your sims create on the easel. They are cloned from a vase, that being the only workable solution I could find with my limited modding knowledge (I did try), so they take up a ground slot. If you must place them over an object, like a table or dresser, then use the MoveObjects On code, it shouldn't hurt anything.

Polys: 576
Vertices: 288

It comes with three designs, each in a different color. (Bright gold, dark gold, and copper.) Each design has a silver recolor. You can find it under the wall hangings category.

Usage: I don't care what you do with these as long as you keep it on a free site and credit me. Retexture, recolor, edit the mesh (perhaps to turn it into a real painting), upload it to a lot, I don't care!

Hmm, that's a pretty neat idea. Very cool.

Your frames are very beautiful.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.

The first one is right off the wall in game, but I can put one up next to some other objects for scale.

Those are marvalous! Great work.

These are very very very nice! Thanks for the great job, I've been wanting these for ever... But you do know that these are actually baroque (17th century), not victorian (200 years later?)

And pray not use these in Tudor milieu, at least if you're aiming for authenticity. Tudor frames weren't gilt and definitely not this large nor ornamental. Maybe we could have some nice Tudor frames next? National Portrait Gallery in London has some marvellous examples.
