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.

A few neighborhoods back I wanted to build a decrepit water mill, and naturally I needed a water wheel for that. So I made this decorative stationary mesh, in a nice worn wood texture. The wheel is cloned off of a two-tile sculpture. Place it on the ground outside your building, then dig a pond under it and decorate as desired. There is a decorative cog on the wheel that will project through to the inside of your building - sims will walk through it unless you place something under or around it to block their pathing.

I also later made a whitened wood and a new wood recolour of it, both of which are also included in the .rar - please feel free to make and post additional recolours of it!

I am downloading this to see if I can use a series of several of them on a steam ship I have built. I hope it works but even if it doesn't I may try to make a water mill with it. That would be fun! Thanks.
