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 is a cornice to end all cornices.

What is a cornice, you ask?

A cornice is a decorative molding on the crown of an object or building, like so:

This object will appear under fences.

Note: If you like this object, check back to this thread in a couple of days. I hope to update with another stand-alone cornice that will work well with roofs (the current one sticks through the overhang of the roof).

Also Note: Recoloring or editing this object is welcome, but please give me credit! This was maddening to work on.

oooh yay! I was downtown thinking about something like that. I wanted to make some of those houses because they are just so victorian and cute. (other's kinda looked haunted) but I knew I couldn't because it wouldn't look right without the detailed cornice. Sooo... Yay, and thank you very much.

Perfect! I can never have too much variety when it comes to little architectural details like this.

I'vealways been fan of mouldings: egg & dart, dentils, frets etc etc.

And this will definitely go straight to my downloads folder.

Oh, one thing, what is thatyou used on the picture as a baseboard? The base part of your house looks so intricate & detailed!

I hope you can also share that with us.

Again, THANK YOU for this wonderful creation!


That's me, silly. Not a sim. But uh, if you're into me, good. If not, whatever.

This is lovely, what is your policy concerning uploading this item with houses?

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.

Thanks for all the positive comments, guys and gals!

@ Christine11778: I'm fine w/ people including my uploads in houses. That's why I make them! ^_^

@ Romeo: The baseboard I used is a Maxis one that I can't remember the name of. It is under the wall/stone section, and it looks rather plain except for the top part of it. It's really my favourite for foundations.

Hey, cameronsnan!

You can't really recolor fences. What you'll have to do is clone the fence and import a new texture file. After you clone it, it's basically the same process as making recolors.

Can't wait to see your creations!

Thanks for this great build item! It's just the type of thing I will use over and over. I love the white-ish color, that's my favorite but I can't wait to see some recolors too!!

Where can I download that door?
I have little imagination and would like to "borrow" the idea of matching the door and cornice. They look good together. Both very beautiful.
