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.
My first object mesh for the Sims 2 is a decorative heron statue. It does not use its own colors, but takes its colors from the falcon statue from Pets and thus requires Pets to work. The zip archive for the heron mesh includes four recolors for it to share with the falcon and a picture to show recolor artists where to color the neck. Unlike the falcon, it does not use a bump map.

Secondly, I have two endtables that were created from the base of the Venus statue, and they both take their colors from that object. The smaller one is a normal height for an endtable, and the tall one is the same height as a fireplace mantle. When I tested these in the game, I found that while the tall one can hold telephones and alarm clocks, the animations don't look right for those purposes... but they still look great for displaying small sculptures and flowers. I have included three recolors of the base of the "On a Pedestal" sculpture to color them. These two objects were made from base-game objects, but they require an expansion pack (any should do) to appear in your game.

Last, I have three recolors of the "Cat Haiku" sculpture from Pets; two recolor both the cat and base, and the third recolors the base only -- that's the sand colored one with an ankh on it.

Please post to let me know if your game has any problems with these objects.

Wow, it was on my list to do some recolours like this, but these are so good I probably won't bother.

Thanks a lot

I am not trying to sound rude but the ankh is actually a sign of the gods. The Egyptain gods and godesses sometimes would carry it it means eternal life basically since they were immortal the pharohs (i think some scribes did too) had them also because they were believed to be the son of ra (the god of the sun).
