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.
Smaller Plainlee Palm.
Just like its big brother but smaller. Looks good in groups together with the game's Plainlee Palm Tree.

The picture shows this Smaller Palm Tree next to its normal-sized brother.

Place in your My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads folder

This is a beta test object and should NOT be distributed in any exported lots until fully tested. Mesh editing is in its early stages and objects may cause problems in your game.

Please report any successes/failures you encounter in gameplay with this object in the Beta Testers forum at ModTheSims2 -

Please check this thread for updates.
Any updates wiill be posted in this first message

THANKS TO: Quaxi, Delphy and Wes_H for the tools to make these possible

So do I! I've got some more to upload but I seem to be having trouble with the image displaying. I can't see it in ie, but I can in firefox.

If you do use this tree, please let me know how you get on with it.

This is very cool -- I bet you could do similar things with other objects, too.

One thing that I noticed was that the shading is off on the trunk. I wonder if you need to shrink the textures too? Other than that, it works well in my game!
