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.

Title: Ye Olde Cooper's Barrels & Sacks

The Story

Ye Old Cooper wast a master craftsman who sayeth always, "If ye can't make with a barrel, it ain't worth the making". He has long past, yet nowe his son John thrives in the industrie. With his goodwife Mary, who now maketh sacking, and their son Jimmy, yon Coopers keepeth a goodly house and lande, and maketh many worthy things of cunning purpose and comely designe.





Purpose

1) To provide a useful set of Sims 2 basegame barrels based on the Seasons planter barrel mesh and texture. The master object is the Trash Barrel which contains the barrel, contents and shadow textures required by the rest of the set.

2) To provide a stackable horizontal sack based on the Basegame "Sack Baby" mesh and texture. This sack is the master object for the "comfy" bucket seat and bar barrel cushion textures.

Contents: A Set of 13 Objects with two Variants

In addition, built-in invisible recolours are present in each master object, which makes the whole set (except for seating and trash disposal) usable as convenient multi-slot and height adjustable OMSPs.

Thank you folks for the encouragement!

I have just learned of Almighty Hat's wonderful collection of medieval defaults, among which is a replacement for that ugly plastic garbage bag that shows up in my screenshots.

Update: April 18, 2010
Update: April 18, 2010

I have noticed that 40% of downloaders want only the simple bucket and/or the trash bucket. Unfortunately, using these buckets without the master mesh object - sdTrashBarrelMaster.package - will cause them to flash blue in the game. I have now added the master object to each of the supplemental bucket archives.

Thank you for all the great feedback!

Buckets...utterly fascinating! I too have a weakness for buckets, barrels and boxes. Who knows why? Anyhow I can now start that bucket factory I always dreamed about and a big bucket department store!

Visit these sites for more Medieval downloads: Sunni Designs, Plumb Bob Keep, and The Medieval Smithy.

So much enthusiasm for... barrels! Are you sure you aren't a Cooper?

this is fantastic - my poor medieval sims had rather expensive looking furniture - which bugged me. Now they can look as poor as they are! Much thanks.

Sophie-David also recommends you check the following:

The invisible dishwasher featured with this set can be downloaded here: Tiny Filesize Invisible Appliances for Lot Builders
StephSim made extensive use of this set in her 45 lot Shadows of Gwrych project and several other Gwrych uploads

StephSim has uploaded an interim release of Ye Ole Cooper's Waterbucket Starter Set that were previously only available by downloading her Gwrych lots. The Starter Set contains some new recolours, and the objects themselves have been updated.

The Trash Barrel is available as a default replacement here
Barrels for Brigands features cheaters versions of the Trash Barrel and Trash Bucket

Michelle 111 updated her two wonderful sets of barrel recolours on Feb. 20, 2012. They are both available at the Plumb Bob Keep: Pooklet Naturals and Rustic/Medieval. The Rustic/Medieval set is also available at MTS.

New Upload: May 31, 2014
Ye Olde Cooper's Muck for the Masses

Inspired by all the filthy uploads for PBK's Unwashed Masses theme, this upload contains 12 barrel contents recolours.
