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.
Here's a tree, requested by JLonier, designed to go over roads like in the pics It was kinda tough to make, tree limbs are pretty hard for me to get the hang of... the tree may seem a little lopsided, but that's on purpose to try to cut down on the polys. If you want a bigger fuller tree just double it up (like in the third pic) using moveobjects on and it looks real good. I do hate the bark, that's another thing that was a big pain, and everytime I tried to improve it, it just got worse and worse.....

This looks fantastic! I'm actually working on a couple of similar trees in my next set. It'll be good to have yours in my game in the mean time =]

A+ work!

The bark looks fine to me. Lovely tree!

QUESTION: Will it drop leaves and change color with the seasons?

In my part of the world, trees are typically 'lopsided' due to strong prevailing winds. In fact, it would need to be a bit more lopsided to be normal -- just another little detail that say sims don't live here.

Seriously, this is a beautiful tree. It will look very good with larger houses. Thank you.

It appears to drop leaves into leaf piles tho I'm not sure why, because I meant it to be base game compatible instead of seasons ready... I actually think the leaf droppings are tied to something else in the game than the actual tree I dunno it's kind of wacky, I'm sure someone knows the deal with that, but not me

It won't tho change colors with the seasons... and I didn't even put in an autumn recolor just in case people want it, but it is recolorable if any one else wants to... and for winter, ugh, I'm sure it won't drop leaves to reveal bare branches because - well first off there's hardly any branches under the leaves (useless polys IMO) to be revealed anyway, and it shouldn't because - well again it's the base game compatible thing...

but if anyone is up to doing all that feel free to fiddle with my mesh if you want to

Great tree Khaki, your "garden" stuff is so useful and well done, a great addition. The pics with the trees on both sides of the road give the idea of what can be done with. Thank you veeery much. Kiss and ciao.

You need to update this to work with Seasons. The custom Trees with Seasons glow blue because now they change in Fall. Now that Seasons is out, unless people update their trees to work with Seasons, these downloads will become obsolete to those who own Seasons.

I have numerous custom trees that haven't been updated for seasons that don't flash blue.

ETA: I believe Khaki also made this base game compliant so it will work for everyone.
