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.
Still working on my factory - my sims don't have many robots made as yet, but once they do they will need a surface to sell from. As its a factory, then of course I needed something a bit rougher to sell the items from but all the Maxis stuff was really ...ewww.

As these are infinitely stackable then they can look good as part of a factory backdrop

I made these crates as display cubes - as my sims have a low robot inventory then as a stop gap they are selling EA trash as collectible kitsch. The shop is doing quite well

Price and Catalog Location
75 Simoleons (cheapest display unit in my game )
Can be found in Surfaces/shelves

Recolour Options
Comes with a plain wood colour and as a bonus it has a recolourable overlay for label/text/whatever so you can customise the crate with your factory name. You can see it in the picture below:

I made some extra recolours - those are on Leefish, link

Polygon Counts:
38 polygons

Great job, Thank you

Sorry I can't take requests anymore!
And I will probably never convert my creations for TS2 to TS3.

Wow these are incredible! I can't believe how amazing the texture is on them, you must have spent a long time getting that to look just perfect!

It's ok, we all laugh-snort occasionally!

Very awesome.

If you all haven't gotten the recolors at Leefish, you need them. The wire-mesh one is right up my alley. Thanks, Lee!
Not actually evil.

Excellent work and great timing as I was thinking of building some docks or warehouses for my medieval merchants.
