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.

Important: all objects except the lamps are base game compatible.

Decorate your sims' houses for Christmas … with snowmen!
There is a snowman candle with a flickering light, which can be found in Decorative/Plants.
There’s a snowman for the mantelpiece (Decorative/Plants), a cute snowman armchair for the kids’ room and a table lamp: a snowman with an animated star.

Light up the rooms with 2 hand painted table lamps – one has the shape of a Christmas ornament and the other one – of a Christmas bell.

An animated musical mobile playing 2 Christmas carols will take care of your toddlers’ motives: fun, bladder, hunger and social. It also increases all sims’ comfort and fun (Decorative/Sculptures)
And there’s an animated tabletop Christmas tree (Decorative/Sculptures) and a Christmas centrepiece with holly (Decorative/Plants).

Warm and wonderful Christmas wishes to everyone in the community!

P.S. I just used Numenor's Game Base Starter and checked the objects. Numenor, Thank you for this very useful tool. All the objects, except the llamps, work fine. The lamps are OK when they aren't lit. But somehow I get a flashing blue texture when I turn them on.

Absolutely beautiful as always, Macarossi - I have everything you've put up and I love it all... one question though... you have OfB, Seasons, and BV marked as required - is that the same for every item in the set? I don't have BV but if I can use some of this lovely set I'd be happy.

Hi HP!
The OBJD parameters for all objects are 0x8b and I followed Numenor's instructions on making base game compatible objects. This should mean that they are base game compatible. But I haven't tested them in a base game only environment.

These are lovely, thanks!

Love will humiliate you and hate will cradle you.
Jealousy would be far less torturous if we understood that love is a passion entirely unrelated to our merits.

Very beautiful objects that you made for Christmas.

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.
