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.
FURTHER ADVENTURES IN CLUTTER. Clutter, beautiful clutter. More clutter than you can shake a stick at, I'd say, so save yourself the trouble.

The theme this time is artsy-ish stuff and desky-ish stuff, mostly from Sims2, with a few things extracted from Sims3.

The notebook, pen, pencil, palette, and single paintbrush are from Sims3; the rest are from Sims2. Except the watercolor pad, which I made myself, whee.

There are a total of eighteen pieces of clutter for your sims' desks and studios. All are decorative only. All have shadows. All are non-recolorable. All are found in Decorative--> Miscellaneous. All cost either $1 or $4. All mesh and texture credits to EA. (Except for the watercolor paper, cause I made that myself. whee.)

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Finally my Sims will have a realistic Desk, full of stuff you use for... decorational purposes! I personally have lots of things on my desk and use them for nothing!

These goodies were in a request for items to be converted at another site. I guess I need to pop over there and drop the link to these beauties. Thanx a bunch for these. Now my Sims can have a proper art studio.
