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.

"Boil, Boil, toil and trouble
Make my driveway invisible
on the double!"

I got tired of not being able to use different floor covering or ground cover to cover the driveway (ie - like if you make a campground, you wouldn't want a concrete driveway would you?). I decided to attemp to make the driveway transparent, so that you can use any cover you want, for a more natural look. You can still use the driveway normally.

didnt someone else already make this?

http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=90875

seriousley, i dont see the differance between theirs, and yours, except yours is newer

it is still very nice though

my personal life can be supported by veiwing this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-n2z-Q6x6eU and others on my youtube page. I believe there's a few building tutorials there aswell. I create rather sporadically, so excuse me if I'm gone from this website for months or years at a time.

Ah, but hers stays maxis until you place it, then it becomes invisible.

So it's not exactly the same.

would this driveway conflict with the other? This one looks great and I would download it but I just want to know if it would conflict. well done and thanks for sharing.

I have been waiting for another invisible driveway, as the other one stopped packaging with lots a few EP's ago. I tested this one out - and voila! It packages very nicely - thanks!

I've never been married, but I tell people I'm divorced so they won't think something is wrong with me.

You should also update your profile to include terms of use or people (like me right now) will ask, can this be included with uploaded lots? :D

Moved as we've had a working invisible driveway for a very long time already.

I don't know why it was moved. It is NOT the same as the other invisible driveway. It has it's own GUID numbers (all 80+!). It is not a recolor, which I believ the other was. You can use ground cover to color the area or flooring!

After further staff discussion, moved back - although your initial post did not make it very clear what was different about _this driveway_ vs. the other invisible driveway.

Also, I am puzzled, why would a driveway require stuff packs?

I was wondering that as well. Do you really need "Glamour" in order to download this? I figured you'd only need "Nightlife"

So, I can have a driveway of grass? It turns invisible right? I have an option not to put any flooring on it? :D

Do you really need all those expansion packs?

I was wondering if you were going to make the add on to the drive way invisible as well? I really like the this but find I can't use the add on drive way as its not invisible as well.

This doesn't require all the expansion packs you listed...
It only needs Nightlife.

Hi, the zip Archive is corrupted so I can download it but I can't extract the file which makes this mod pretty much useless. You may need to re upload it.

Doesn't work for me, TS2 crashes while loading. I assume the id conflcts with something else I have. But the recolor version referred to by comedy711 is more useful anyway, imho...

Is it comletly invisible after placing it? I mean Would it be ok if there is no ground covering, only grass or other terrain paint? ( to have a grovel driveway )
