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.
Romantic new mesh to place on your ponds!


This Swan is actually cloned from the water plants.
This way you can place it on the ponds.

You can find the swan in the build mode under Garden center/flowers!
They cost §100 each.

This item doesn't need any expansions!


Have fun!

nice work thx i ever search for things that i could put on my seas

They tell us everything's alright and we just go along;
How can we fall asleep at night when something's clearly wrong?
When we can feed a starving world with what we throw away;
But all we serve are empty words that always tastes the same...

Your swan looks so realistic.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.

They're nice smithycpl.

As per my PM. Here is a snapshot of a pair of Australian Native Black Swans, with their cygnets, and an old Pelican for company.
I will try to get a set of better shots for you, if you can find the time to do an Australian Swan recolour.

They are black with fine grey edges to their feathers, and have red and black chevron markings on their beaks, and black legs.

Those are very nice "Trumpeter" Swans.
Now I have company for my geese. Many thanks!

At least these are cheaper than the real thing. A pair of Trumpeter Swans are expensive - ranging from $1200 bucks (that's cheap) and can go up to $4000 a pair.

For those that don't know - they are USUALLY sold in pairs because Swans mate for life.

Those came with the seasons expansion, from maxis.
The fish is animated and your sims can go fishing in the lakes also with seasons.

It's nice to see you here, Smithy! I'm glad the spectacular demise of SMB didn't keep you away.

The swan is just lovely -- it looks so real!
