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.
I originally made this as a purely decorative item to use on lots like gas stations, but while testing I realised it was almost exactly the right size and shape for use as an end table, so I remade it.

The oil drum can be found in surfaces > end tables and costs $10. You may say that's pretty cheap, but then how cheap does a Sim have to be to use an old oil drum as a table?

The package comes with 5 built-in recolors ranging from shiny-and-new to seriously rusty.

I... don't know why, but I totally love the look of this! Can't wait to try it out! It looks like something great to have by the mailbox for sims to drop mail on!

I have gone out to find myself. If you see me before I get back, please let me know where I'll be.

hahaha! This is so cool!
My Simmies will love this... Well, the poor ones will.
The rich Sims will think it's trashy, but who cares what they think?

This is great - I love the rusty ones! Just right for the pathetically poor sims, or the ones who just don't care.

This is brilliant! Any chance of getting the mesh and recolours in separate packages? I can see myself using the rusty and slightly rusty ones, but the others have english writing and I try to stick to simlish only in my game.

Request for Oil Drum End Table
Hi I am makin Shiny Things Lab from The Sims Bustin Out from the PS2 for the PC. I have nearly finished making it now but I need some items to finished it off. I have a request for this object Oil Drum End Table. Would you be able to recolor it to a dark gray and add some toxic sludge on the edges like it's dripping off and add a bio hazard sign on the front of it and if you could possibly take the top off the drum and fill it to the top with very bright green toxic sludge.

Like in this picture from The Sims Bustin out - Shiny Things Lab

I don't know how to make objects for The Sims 2 or recoloring them but I am starting to learn how to recolor objects only dead basic though. If you can do this for me it will be greatly appreciated! :D
