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.
Grave - Find in Decorative/All or Miscellaneous/All. Purely decorative object - no special functions. Positive room value. Can be used indoors as well as outdoors. Looks especially good with a little dirt colored terrain around it.

Dead Nanny - Optional separate object to be used with the grave. Find in Decorative/All or Miscellaneous/All. Positive room value. From original Maxis Nanny mesh. Since the Dead Nanny is beneath ground/floor level and could potentially be misplaced, I included an empty beer can with this object that lays on the floor or ground, so you can retrieve/move/rotate the nanny by grabbing the beer can. Just place the beer can by the corner of the grave nearest the shovel and the dead nanny will appear in the grave. You may have to rotate the beer can once or twice.

Update 3/29/05: Fixed integrity, made sure EP compatible, and a few minor changes for this and all my other posted objects.

Wow! I will test this (great for stories/movies). Looks great, like all of your work. Thank you!

P.S. How about a coffin for the grave? Or has someone already made a coffin? Will go look...

YES we need a coffin that either is a closed casket or has a corpse inside. Something that could be used if you wanted to create a funeral parlor or something like that.

I love this! I can't think of a better place to put a Nanny, either.

I can think of other sims to put in the grave, for instance, some of my husband sims would love to see Don Lothario in that hole! Is that possible? Neat work and very, very sick. Thank you!

OMG I can't stop laughing!

Actually this is perfect for me. On one of my sims lots I have the grave of this dead nanny out back. She wouldn't leave and moved herself in without asking then one day died in a fire she started while making a grilled cheese (she had 10 cooking skill too!).

It will fit right in. Thanks!

the open grave is wonderfull all by it's self, but the dead nanny touch is the true mark of Boot's total evil genious!

Think this is the first subsurface object worked up for the Sims2. Another Boots FIRST! :D
