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.

Hi all,
*Updated:* I did a Version 2 of my Beam of wood: Now it doesn't disappear when you zoom close to it.

For this, you'll have to download the zip named "Beam of wood Version 2".It contains the new mesh and its recolors.It doesn't replace the first Version.
*Special thanks to Inge Jones and Echo who helped me to fix the BHAV!

I made this beam of wood for decorating your ceilings:


Vertices:70 Faces:48
You can find it under decorative/sculpture

For getting a larger one, add as much beam as you want, like that:


3 tiles:


I have also made 4 recolors of it!
I hope you will like it !

* I add also a smaller version and its recolors as requested by naffets(doesn't disappear too):

*Do not post my creations to the exchange!
*Recolor my meshes is allowed (free only) but please link back to my post for original meshes.
Do not include my meshes with your recolor zip files.
*Including in a house lot is allowed (free only) with credits and link.
*And please forgive my bad english, it's not my native language

This would also be good for outdoor cabins-cotttages, warehouses and factorys.

Thanks ^^

You know, just the other day I made a little log cabin from a blueprint I found online. I pretty much nailed it down, except it was missing beams! And I thought, 'well, i'll never find something like *that*', but lo and behold...

ty, this is a great idea!

These are great! I really love 'em.. If you don't mind me making a small request, do you think you can make another set, but a bit smaller and round? Like the ones made for adobe houses..
Thanks!

Don't worry about that naffets, I uploaded the smaller Version yesterday only!

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