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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hello !

Here is my new "Super Realistic" Palm : the Washingtonia filifera (California fan palm/palmier jupon).
There are 6 sizes.
This version don't replace the old, you must delete it manually in the game.

Please, don't recolor my news meshes, don't use to make other object.

You can upload all of my palms/plants with 2 simples rules :

- NEVER in a part of PAY item, because I share my work for FREE !
- Give appropriate CREDIT AND LINK to the download on ModTheSims2.

INFO : the sky is made with the New Weather atmosphere by Chris997 on MTS2

Good game.

Besides looking wonderful in my landscapes, your palms may let me finally learn the real names of palms I see in the landscapes here and south towards the coast.

Thank you. This looks very real.

Do these meshes replace the older ones that you've made of this plam tree?

By the way, they look great from the pictures! Thanks a lot for sharing.

You know I love you for your palms, right? :-D
From where I live, I have to travel more than 1000 miles south to see any palms. Germany is awfully palmless. I guess that's why I like them above most other plants - and I dearly love all kinds of green stuff.

I love all of your palm trees -- they're just gorgeous, and I really appreciate the wide variety. They look wonderful in my neighborhoods.

One question -- how did you get the pinkish-orange sky in that one pic? I have Chris's weather object and can only get blue or gray skies. Just curious...thanks much!

Being that I am from the palmetto state, this really forces me to go and stay on the beach for a weekend, thanks for the push, and great job.
#24 Old 27th May 2007 at 6:53 AM
You know what, the scientific name of this particular palm makes no sense. Washingtonia filifera... Wouldn't that mean that it is from Washington? (I'm sorry but I took a horticulture class a while back.) But of course, I rarely see any Palms around here. It's too darn cold... Unless of course its from the other side of the Cascades, in which case, I've never seen any there either. Unless of course it's the one that does survive here... Hmm... It's been too long since that class...

I don't get why so many Simmers hate Marsha Bruenig. She actually grows up to be quite pretty if you allow her to.
