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.
For the entrance for any grand house. This Lion comes in three colours dark stone, light stone and bronze.

Created and Textured in MilkShape 3D 1.7.4
Package File Created in SimPE Version 0.42.2019.39216
EP-Ready uni not required
Poly Count 3011

Origonaly I tryed to create them from the Maxis 'Shi Shi's Frou Frou Fu Lion' which has a poly count of 3006 but was unable to colour enable the object and gave up. I then resorted to cloning it from the 'Immoble Chimes' by adding extra groups.

There are Two files in the download CPDesign_StoneLionR and CPDesign_StoneLionL one being facing right the other facing left.

Feel Free to Re-Colour

There was a problem with the Lefthand lion I had the same file names in both packages. DUH! please dwnload StoneLionLeft and replace and overwright the file CPDesign_StoneLionL in your downloads folder and they should display as in my screen shots. Thanks Havelock

Thanks to all at Modthesims2 :howdy:

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I can't say it enough!
I posted in mesh requests a couple of months ago about someone changing that awful looking frou-frou lion.
Your statues are incredible--as is all your work. I've downloaded most of it!
Keep up the good work!


(How about a sphinx statue to go with Nertiti and King Tut? Hint..hint! :D

Thanks again Havelock, as from my screen shots they worked in my game through the creation and testing but having gone back into the game I now have the problem you have highlighted. I will re-work the package file to try and sort it out, at present I can't see what has gone wrong and will get the other one up as soon as posible probably now tomorrow.

Once again thank you.

Excellent, and with very nice texturing, I like their 'rough' look.

What great timing you had, a fantastic birthday present for all us Leos out there! Thank you

Gromit you are awesome, love the lions. I'm not sure if you do requests but I've sooo been looking for gargoyles to place in front of a castle, something like this but gargoyles. But anyways I'm very happy with the lions, thanks so much
