This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
These are twelve birthdaycards (Simlish or English) for your sims to send to anyone they know in the neighbourhood. The receiver will get a small boost to the relationship with the sender when the recipient looks at the card.



You will need the postalsystem of MogHughson which you can find here. That thread also contains all information about how to use these cards. You can even make your cards yourself with different categories.

I used google to find some images and texts for these cards.

Update 2010-02-01
I added the same cards but in a Simlish version as requested by GeneralOperationsDirector.
They have different GUIDS so they don't overwrite the English version. You can have both (24 cards!) in your game.

Other cards I made:

Engagement: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=391563
New Birth: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=392264

Have fun!

"Holy cow" - I love these cards! I'm really hard thinking about downloading the postal system... my downloadsfolder is just sooo big right now with his 3gb -.-
But the cow made me laugh - How would I react if I had received it? And the others are so great too. Just so close to reality. Thanks for making them all - you make with the cards the postal system better.!

Very nice. All that our Sims need now is a real working birthday.

This may work for people who are playing with "aging on" but eternal living Sims with "aging off" won't have a birthday. If you have the Seasons EP the birthday would always have to be in the same season.

I see. Well you can pretend to have a real birthday by sending a card and just giving a normal party then. That's what I would do.

"I'd love to take requests and ideas to make some more cards!"
Would you be willing to make Simlish versions of these cards? I don`t like English text on my in-game objects, although of course the UI and buy-mode object descriptions are all in English [except for some that are only German -- and I don`t read German ].

You probably mean to put the "Happy Birthday" bit on the cards in Simlish.
I can do that, but first I have to study Simlish a bit to translate the text.
I'll try it out.

I`m refering to all of the English in the images used to create the objects. There used to be a Simlish font available here for download, but it has been removed by its creator. Words in Simlish are spelled just as in English, but the letters are weird-looking.

I can make the text simlish but the pictures won't look as good. Like the Happy Birthday on the card with 5 balloons written in color. But I'll do my best.

I play with aging off and with seasons I just pretend a sim's birthday is in whatever season their zodiac lies in. There's a birthday cake on here that allows sims to have birthday celebrations whenever and they don't age when they blow out the candles. The guests gather round and cheer as with the real aging system in the game also.

I'm thinking about using the postal system in my game! Over the past week a few users have been uploading new cards for it and they look so great, but I'm scared to put it in my game just yet...I'll wait a bit! Great job on the cards.

Awww, thank you! Now I *have* to download these!

Unfortunately, the Linux file server I use to store --amongst other things-- my downloaded-but-not-yet-installed Sims 2 items is currently in the shop for repairs it isn`t likely to get. Meanwhile, this is now officialy on my Must Download Later list.

I'm very happy you like them.
Let me know when you can what you think about it in the game itself.

Hokay. If I remember. When I get my files back, I have such a HUGE backlog that it might take a few months to get to them.

I think I will do only Simlish versions now.
Or at least make a Simlish version of my Valentinecards.

My Downloads folder hates you (it's already groaning under the weight I've already stuffed into it) but this is just what I need... it's not a birthday without cards!
