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.
Hello and welcome, here I come with the first TS3 upload - a Mini Top Hat Accessory!


This appears as a wrist accessory for AF/YF under Everyday, Formal, Athletic, Swimwear.

The hat has three recolourable parts:


Please don't steal my work.

EDIT 6/1: As there are some glitches in the previous package, I've uploaded a 'testing' one. Anyone willing to test please do so and report to me via PM.

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.

Zomg, how terribly stylish!

What I lack in decorum, I make up for with an absence of tact.

This is so cute. It probably looks like it's ominously floating over some hairstyles...

... And if that is the case, I'd never want to change it >:D

In The Rocky Horror Picture Show, there is a "Transylvanian" who wears a hat just like this (in green). That rocks.

I'm having the same problem as xoxcelestialxox (or so I assume). It looks like this download may have problems with the patched base game, too, since I don't have World Adventures. I took some screenshots:

I hope you can resolve this eventually, because it looks really cute in your screenshots. :c
