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.

Summer Fun Playset

When I saw this bee themed playset from the Sims 3 Seasons expansion pack there was no doubt in my mind I would be converting it for the Sims 2, I just didn't expect it to take so long! Assigning joints, morphing meshes, extending footprints and fixing countless self referencing BHAVs were the easy parts. Recoloring these so it looked like a cohesive set? That was the hard part for me but I finally settled on a bright, cheerful color scheme to match the fun caterpillar swing and the flowery decals on the lookout tower. I hope you enjoy it.

The set includes six meshes, that have two subsets you can mix and match and everything can be found in the catalog under Hobbies / Recreation. I wanted the set to be large enough for community lots (was thinking parks and schools) so I added matching monkey bars and the large 5x5 sandbox from Generations.

Terms of Use:
There are none. The PSD files I made with the original textures are HERE if anyone wants to recolor these.

Special Thanks:
Go to mustluvcatz, justsimaround, meetmetotheriver, fivegigs, lipe2k, kalisasims, sushigal007, voleste, truebloodsims, lestrangeramblings, thetragicclown, and divasim for your input when I was spamming asking for feedback on tumblr. I haven't quite got the hang of replies yet but I appreciated each and every note. Thank you.

Additional Credits:
SimPE, AGS, s3pe, s3oc, Gimp 2.8, Fraps, Milkshape, and EA for the meshes and textures. I'd also like to thank Echo not just for cloning her mesh but I think almost every single skill that I needed to know in order to convert this set all came from reading her tutorials at one time or another. Thank you.

Since I don't have the Sims3, I love it when people convert items to sims 2. This is really nice and your hard work paid off.

Absolutely gorgeous. I can never get enough of pretty play-things for my Sim-kiddies. This theme will fit in great in my hood, as it is very nature-themed.

So cute! At first I thought I wouldn't really be able to use this (since I play fantasy/historical/medieval) but...with the right recolors these would be awesome for my fairies. I still love that swing, it's so cute! :D

Love this, so adorable! I'm definitely going to change my trailer park's playground to this, as it's more outdoorsy and nicer. So cute, I'm in love with this set!!

Me too! They're so cute with the little bees and flowers, and beautifully done! I would love to see these as deco too, as I don't have Apartment Life, but they would look so nice in my Sims's gardens!
