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.
For those of you who are having issues with flashing blue grasses in your game, please re-download them and overwrite the existing files.

NOTE: The fixed grasses have new GUIDs, but the same file names. If you do not place them in the same sub-folder as the original, they will not automatically overwrite the problem files, and you will have two sets of grasses in your game. You will have to manually delete the problem files.


Gardeners are soooo pre-apocalypse, don't you think? Purity Project certainly does. So, why is your lawn still lush and green when it could look like this...

Nice, huh?

Yes, you'll be the envy of the neighborhood with our special Grungify Your Yard gardening pack. Set includes 10 terrain paints, 4 dead trees, 3 dead grasses, and 2 grass recolors--ALL BASEGAME COMPATIBLE!!

Why do we mention that? Because the tree mesh is a resized Maxis mesh from the Nightlife EP, but YOU DO NOT NEED NL to have these trees in your game. Clear?

Good. Now the other bit of business--the trees and grasses are repository sets. That means you must have the master file in your game for the textures to show up. The master file for the trees is Fallout High-Rise Large Dead Tree. The master for the grasses is Fallout High-Rise Dead Grass. Got it?

Alrighty. Go grungify, people.

Polygon Counts:
Fallout High-Rise Small Dead Grass - 846
Fallout High-Rise Dead Grass - 846
Fallout High-Rise Large Dead Grass - 846
Fallout High-Rise Dead Shrub - 3282
Fallout High-Rise Small Dead Tree - 3282
Fallout High-Rise Medium Dead Tree - 3282
Fallout High-Rise Large Dead Tree - 3282

these arereally good for the contest! you have a good shot!!

the funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it.

I just wanted to let you know I appreciate the little note on your file saying the set is repository, so on the cc upload page you can get it taken care of BEFORE you upload! Thanks!

And yes, the set is awesome! As you can tell I have already used it!

I love the grasses especially and used them in one of my lots -- they looked great but after being there for about two (sim) days, they began flashing blue and caused the game to crash so I had to remove them. Has anyone else had this problem?

Flux has left the building -- the popups on every page have finally driven her away. She can be found in Cinnabar.

Flux1212, I'll look into it and get back to you. They are cloned from the rose bush, which needs to be trimmed. That might be causing the problem.

In the meantime, if you want to play with the grasses in your game, you could download Twojeff's Perfect Plants or Perfect Gardens so they won't change to that state.
