This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hi everyone! I wasn't very satisfied the way my sakura trees came out, so I decided to upload this version instead, a more detailed version. This is a recolor of the Japanese maple tree so there is no mesh needed. Each branch is loaded with blossoms as you can see, like a real sakura tree! So if you prefer this version instead, please delete the old version called sakurablossom and/or sakurablossom1 in your downloads folder unless you want this and my old version together. I am very pleased with how these turned out, and I hope you are too! Enjoi! ^_^

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Your flower blossom trees are looking great.

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.

These trees look beautiful, thanks for sharing.

I've never been married, but I tell people I'm divorced so they won't think something is wrong with me.

These remind me of my trip to Washington DC five years ago. I happened to be there during the peak cherry blossom week. Ahh, sweet nostalgia...

Great job, thank you!

These are really very beautiful.

It will be very interesting to see what happens to them during Seasons! I wonder, will the blossoms fall off during fall? =)

Nice work!

Nice work!

Hahaha that would be very neat indeed! Who knows, maybe they'll already have a blossom tree included in the next expansion that changes during the seasons!
