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.

Here is my new creation : an Archontophoenix ( Bangalow Palm / Palmier de Cunningham ).

There is in 3 sizes, with one recolor : with & without flowers (see pictures)

NEW mesh :
- 6m : 1456 vertices, 1657 faces.
- 7m : 1456 vertices, 1657 faces.
- 10m: 1580 vertices, 1743 faces.

Please, don't recolor them, don't use texture or mesh to make other objetcs.

UPLOAD in your lot :

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.

Thank you very much.

Good game,

Really good job, comme toujours d'ailleurs!

Sorry I can't take requests anymore!
And I will probably never convert my creations for TS2 to TS3.

Hi !
Thank you very much everybody for yours messages.
Ailias, I can't reduce polycounts because the mesh needed this.
But, comparating with cars in download on the net, or with the palm of Maxis, my mesh is less big. Palm of maxis : more than 2000 vertices. Here, my palm : 1456 vertices.
Some cars on the net : more than 3000 vertices !

The palms look cool

I don't think the poly counts are too high. They are still have way fewer polys than my cypress trees :D

I do not do requests; please don't ask!

Thank you so much for ALL your trees. I am making a series of "desert island" lots, and your trees add so much to them. It's so nice to have a wonderful variety!
