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.
ATENTION! New link added (D&M_New_Railway_Station)

I made some changes in the objects:

- Fix footprints.

-Resize of the objects, now you can use them with foundations. The original idea is by "Whoden" , this is the post with his comment about this change ( Whoden Comment ). I liked his idea and i did it, I think now the objects are more usables.









I present this new decorative set . I think this set looks nice for storytelling... victorian or far west worlds, for example.




This set include 9 new decorative objects:

-Steam Locomotive:

Price: 1000
Channels: 2

- Tender:

Price: 250

-Passenger Wagon:

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.

I can't think of anything offhand to use this for, but I'll be damned if I don't think of something. This is such a great looking set, it takes me back to the days of helping dad build his 3 room train set. Thanks, I needed this. The memories alone just made my day.
