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.
This is a set of thin vertical wallhangings designed to be placed up stairway walls... they also work good on 2-story walls

are the recolors that are included

This is a shot of the different heights.... the longest one is the "repository" object... so any recolors should be done thru it.

faces: 152 vertices: 220
Special thanks to IgnorantBliss, Echo, and Frillen for help with the repository technique.

I really love these vertical flowers pictures. I had them in sims 1.

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.

Wonderful idea, and nice execution of it! Thanks.

These are lovely. How did you do your wall along the stairs though, this looks really good.

It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.

I would like as many recolors of this as possible. What a great idea, thanks!!

I always wondered what to do with staircase walls. They always looked to bare. Thanks!

Great Idea :D

I've been wanting to make my own painting mesh for a while now, do you know of any tutorials on how to do it? I haven't been able to find any.

I don't know of any specific tutorials on painting meshes....
any tutorial I used was from here:

jwoods' "start to finish" tutorial is what everyone recommends... it's in .pdf so you have to download it
but I'm really terrible when it comes to following tutorials... I'm the sort who gets the programs (in my case SimPE of course, Wings3D and UVmapper classic - google them to find) and fiddles around, then I go and hunt down specific info for problems I have or things I want to be able to do....

Brilliant, thank you for sharing.

If it's just us, it seems like an awful waste of space
