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.

These head stones are both decorative and functional.

Created and Textured in MilkShape 3D 1.7.5
Packaged Using SimPE 48c
EP-Ready (Uni & NL not required)
Colour-Enabled

Poly Counts :-

Cross head stone 90
Celtic Cross head stone 532
Obalisk head stone 62
Tomb 280

These work on the same principle as the versatile display cabinets I made. The clickable area has been altered to allow full function of an existing Sims grave stone. I am not sure how the ghosts interact with them as it takes ages for me to see ghosts on my lot.

The two crosses and the obalisk were cloned from the 'Ancient transport Urn' and have been made to intersect other objects so no 'moveobjects' cheat needed they will just sit over the grave stone.

The tomb was cloned from the 'Manor House Praree Dining Table'. The grave must be placed first and then the tomb otherwise the grave will want to sit on the top. Other objects can be placed ontop such as flowers etc although they will tend to sink into the surface. The surface is such to cover an asperational grave stone and as objects have to be placed at standard heights this could not be adjusted. Three graves can be in this; ideal for the family.

They can be found Buy mode Miscellaneous/Miscellaneous
Community Outdoor/Miscelaneous

Please post any problems.

feel free to re-colour to brighten up the grave yards?

Wow, you made it so we can do so much with it. I put money on one tomb.
I love watching my ghosts jump into the tomb that holds her gravestone.
Really fun Gromit.

Beautiful work... thank you for the much needed variety.

It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

Fabulous, I was just thinking of making some decorative gravestones and tombs, you've saved me a huge headache thankyou. Many moons ago I made a large cemetery set for the Sims1 and missed it in my Sims2 game, I probably have the 3d meshes I used kicking about on a disk somewhere.
Thanks so much for these :valentine

Thank you I was not sure how the ghost would behave with them it takes ages for me to see ghosts I've realy only seen the Goths in thier back garden.

Yes they can be used in the community lots primarly that is why I did these for the community grave yards for Night Life. They can be found under Outdoors/Miscellaneous.

I am still working on the above ground graves you requested in the object request forum. They just need texturing now I will keep you posted.

Thats right they just place over an existing grave stone. Or can be used just as decoration.
