Ornamenta: Welcome to the Classical Pediments (new meshes)

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.
Is there anybody planning to build the Royal Opera House? Or maybe the Bank of England?

Some people had asked me for objects of this kind, to use as rooftops, or to create porticos. I like also to decorate my outdoors with classic ornaments and I have never found one of this shape. So, why not make one at my own taste?

The problem was that, for a so basic and simple thing, I'm lasting several months to perform it. I wanted a mesh easy to recolor, easy to resize, easy to link to porticate my entry gate... ufff, too much "easies" made a big complication. But I think is finally done!

Description of the set

It consist in three meshes same shape same colors in three sizes: 3 tiles, 4 tiles, 5 tiles. The "mother" of the three is the file "naniporticoBEpeak", in four tiles size, and its recolors doesn't have number in the files, so you can identify clearly.

Where are located in

Under the Buy Mode catalog - Miscellaneous. It is cloned from the fruitbowl of base game.

How to use

They are very polifacetic, because are set in only one tile, so you can put other objects inside, as sculptures or fences or what you want. And although it not was my first intention, the small one goes very nice above the windows.


The most important thing in my opinion, as you can see by the pics, is that they are perfectly linkable one to another with a seamless effect, so, here is your old times porche!!!





In the pics below you can see each one of the recolors with the names of the files. There are 3 plain stone colors in white, grey (antique) and sandstone. And five colors in marble covering with front decoration: white (the meshes), grey, black, cream and green.

Recolors are allowed, and also to use the textures to mix: if you want the black marble covering with the sandstone front no problem by my side, just credit if you upload the recolor anywhere.

Enjoy the pediments as I did making them!

Polygon Counts:
According SimPE 120x132 each one.

Additional Credits:
This time I don't want to forget to thank Numenor and his tutorial of how to use the UV Mapper to get accurate textures. I've follow it step by step and word by word as a good girl.

I think that you mean versatile when you say polifacetic? Polifacético? My Spanish isn't as good as your English though. They're really lovely, I can't wait to see how they appear in my game!

Mehrlicht, you know I'm very embarrased when you tell this kind of things. But you have said a funny thing and tres sympa: to go together to hell. I'm now imagining a hell full of marble columns, gilded candelabra, tapestries and rugs d'Aubusson...

This can come in VERY handy for the Victorian London challenge or for times when I need them just to achieve a certain look. THANK YOU again for your build mode objects! I absolutely LOVE them!

Creativity is giving the soul permission to leap beyond the boundaries of the ordinary!

I'#ve spent two days looking for something like this. I'm making a georgian mansion. It wasn't until I'd given up and started looking for victorian furniture instead I finally found this. Thakyou so much!

Default Request please
Thanks for your beautiful pediments. I would like to request if possible, from The Mansion And Garden EP, can anyone make the Maxis "Grand Front Decotatif" and increase the size to 6 tiles wide? I would like to place it on a flat roof as a store front. I love the shape you've made for your doors and windows, but the "Grand Front Decotatif" has a lovely curved shape that can perch on the top of a wall, but too small, only 3 tiles wide to stand out. Thanks.
