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.


Alright, this is something requested by ghsus a while ago. Apologies for the maassive delay as I was occupied by new work and a couple of other things. I think this might be my last upload for a while since I'll be kept busy with my real life.



These are new object meshes and recolours that are from the television series (which I have never watched :P) the OC, from the poolhouse.
There are 8 new meshes, and 1 wallpaint.

Comes in several recolours for some of the objects:





Overall, I'm pretty happy with how it came out, but flaws that are worthwhile to mention are: the dresser's drawer does not exactly correspond to the sims pulling out animation, unsatisfactory textures of the recliner and endtable, oversized shadow of the table lamp. I tried to improve on those, but in the end I was too busy to do them.

The blind fits the frame of Maxis' The "Function of Plate Glass" Window.

That's it, I've tested the objects thoroughly, hopefully there wouldn't be too many problems. Thanks testers.



Polygon Counts:
> Blind: Faces = 362, Vertices = 296
> Vase: Faces = 702, Vertices = 696
> Low Path Lights: Faces = 114, Vertices = 104
> Endtable: Faces = 458, Vertices = 444
> Dresser: Faces = 2980, Vertices = 2334 High Poly
> Couch/recliner: Faces = 1994, Vertices = 1790
> Floor Lamp: Faces = 496, Vertices = 363
> Double Door: Faces = 1692, Vertices = 1152

Ive decided to still upload the bedding, which is in the zip "Blake'sPoolhouseBednBedding", however, containing in the zip is also the bed recolour to murano's bed at TSR. So you should be aware that you should have the bed mesh if you'd like the recolour to function

Absolutely perfect! The dresser and the floor lamp are really well done, but the whole set (how many details!) is cool.
I don't like the TV show O.C., actually never seen, but probably it's nice for getting inspired. Hope you'll see more TV! Thank you forever and ciao.

I've never seen the show, so I can't make any comparisons. But, it has a great look whether it matches the show or not. Great Job!

I don't mind if you call me "MSD" or something for short.
