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.
By request, I present here a large selection of crucifixes and the cross for all Christians sims.



Crusifixes and crosses come in three sizes plus a variety for wall mounting.

In addition, a cross to roofs in three sizes.

Crusifixes have three color channels, one with a natural body, while the crosses have only one color channel.

Costs and where to find in catalogue:

CrucifixBig 1995 $ Buy-Decoration-Statues
CrucifixMedium 1335 $ Buy-Decoration-Statues
CrucifixTable 1235 $ Buy-Decoration-Statues
CrucifixWall 995 $ Buy-Decoration-Misc

CrossBig 350 $ Buy-Decoration-Statues
CrossCross 235 $ Buy-Decoration-Statues

CrossWall 55 $ Buy-Decoration-Misc

CrossRoofBig 255 $ Buy-Decoration-Roofdecoration

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.

Oh man, one of my sims is REALLY going to like these. Also, I've been meaning to build a pipe organ, which means building a church, which will look funny without crosses.

Don't think I'll put the cross in my yard, though. That's a bit much (and kind of creepy) if you ask me.

Actually, that's called a "Saint Peter's cross" and it's not as edgy as you think. The symbolism is Saint Peter believing himself unworthy to be killed in the same manner as Christ, and to show his deference to the Lord, he asked to have his crucifix turned upside down. So wearing your little upside-down cross? Is showing the Lord he's better than you, buddy.

Go cry, emo kid, et c.

Maybe he was asking for the inverted cross because he has some Sims who also deem themselves unworthy in the eyes of Jebus?

Now I'm going to have to take up creating just so I can make some pentagrams and pentacles as well as some alchemic circles and celtic symbols to hang in my pagan sims homes.

PLEASE do so. My wiccan/sorcerer Sims are *starving* for cool decor; I don't know how much more of this I can take; them going without.

What it meant in the past is not what it means today.
The swastika used to be a symbol of peace or sainthood. But is that what you think when you see one today?

I second further religious symbols. They add a nice touch to neighborhoods.

Still, these are cool scenery (the corpus would be more awesome if it were a Sim body XD) and would also make an awesome addition to vampire stories and all kinds of stuff.

These are perfect. I'm making an old missionary museum type of church for weddings (built next to a hospital that was supposedly started by missionaries), this will be perfect! Obviously sims don't really have any religion, but it adds story depth for me personally so I would definitely like to see more religious themed objects. I'd like for someone to make some Buddhist statues so that I can build some temples in China.

Well I thank you a lot , I wasn't looking for anything like this, but when I saw the crosses I just wanted them.
And you made me think that religion and/or spirituality is one of the most important things for human beings, so Why Sims are godless beings It would be great if on one expantion, EA adds spirituality to the world of the sims, it would make them a lot more realistic

These are nice. Could you make tiny versions of the wall and table ones so we could use them in homes.

One of the things I find most appealing about the Sims games is the fact that they are not religious. It makes for a much happier world I'd say.

Nice work on these crucifixes, they look great! But personally I just don't think they belong in the Sim world.

Which is why I won't be downloading this :P

Yes you are right, it's good that there is no religion in the Sims and I was very hesitant before I uploaded them. But earlier, I have uploaded a Buddha and there are construction of many churches in the Sims.
Undoubtedly, religion plays an important role in real life and this may well be appropriate to also have it in the game for those who wish.

These are great, as are candles and other items of yours I have downloaded today. One question, the long table with white cloth you have the crosses and candle displayed on, where did you get it? I want it!!! :D
