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 : a Butia capitata ( Palmier abricot / Cocotier du Brésil / Wine palm )

There is in 2 size.
3m : 1484 vertices, 1454 faces
7m :1984 vertices, 1929 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.

Gorgeous. I wish I could figure out how to do a tree so well.

Thank you,


There are many myths about planes. Not many people know them. My favorite one is the propellor one: The propellor is on the front of the plane, it cools the pilot, because when it turn off, the pilot starts sweating.

I downloaded your previous palms and they look great in game. These look really promising too. I was wondering though what your inspiration is for all these realistic palms? I don't mean to be rude but with your meshing skills you could do some great work. Don't limit yourself and try something new.

I look foward to your future creations and thanks for these.

So glad to see that you are continuing to make more palm trees. We really can't have enough trees in this game. And your varieties are making it so exciting. Thanks for sharing these. So much fun for all of us

I think all of your creations look great in the game, especially this one. Seen as Maxis has only provided one palm tree, these are a huge relief! They're great and I hope to see some more!
