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.

As requested by furballvie, Motki and katgyrl.

Here are two standalone parasols.

ParasolTall 1210 polygons

As suggested for use in the garden, by the pool or as Beach Umbrella.

ParasolShort 1210 polygons

for use with the 'moveobjects on' cheat. This has a smaller base so as not to clash too much with the Sim's feet whilst the are sitting.

When in the game they can be found in 'outside/decorative'

modelled in Milkshape using Miche and Delphy's Mesh Tool and SimPE 35b.

Feel free to re-colour
If you want the mown grass it is in Downloads Floors&Groundcover.

Hope you like :-)
