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.
Hello !
Here is a new version of the Phoenix canariensis : it's more big than the first, colours and meshes are ameliorated : it's more realistic.

Advice : use the cheat code "moveobjects on" to place 2 palms and have a tree more leafy, as some of pictures.
These news packages don't replace my olds phoenix canariensis.

4m: 1794 vertices, 1880 faces
8m: 1935 vertices, 2014 faces
12m: 1991 vertices, 2062 faces

Please, don't recolor my news meshes, don't use to make other object.

Now, you can upload all of my palms/plants, without my persmission,
but with 2 simples rules :

- NEVER in a part of PAY item, because I share my work for FREE !
- Give appropriate CREDIT AND LINK to the download on ModTheSims2.

Good game

Wow, these look pretty much exactly like the palms I used to see when visiting my Aunt that were growing in the yards near her home...catching lizards on these trees was hard, but so much fun!!! Brings back memories *happy sigh*

Lovely work!

These are so outstanding. The smaller one will be so perfect for putting
down by the base of the other ones!
Thank you so much.

Génial ! Je n'ai rien d'autre à ajouter ! Sérieusement tes palmiers sont tout simplement extraordinaires ! Si seulement tu les avais fait avant que j'emmene l'héroine de mon histoire aux Bahamas ! Enfin, je trouverai bien où les mettre ! lol

Merci encore et comme tu dis : Vive les membres francophones ! Même si on n'est qu'une petite minorité^^ !
Bon courage pour la suite !

I love your work! I cannot wait to download more! I use your fabulous palms ALL THE TIME. They look soooo beautiful in game. I would love to see what you could do with a fern! You have such excellent detail skills!
Thank you for making my sims game sooo much more realistic!

Please consider adopting a cat from your local shelter or cat rescue. They are wonderful companions. If you cannot give a cat in need a home, please consider donating to a NO KILL shelter/rescue.
