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.
Updated for Pets and patch

My other Buddha was huge, yes, and I got several request of other, smaller sizes.
Here they are, four different sizes for anyone who like the Buddha. I do!



The Buddhas are cloned from the garden gnome so please be aware they are "kickable"!

The medium one cost $300, the small $290, the mini $280 and the micro Buddha $270 and you find them in the statues category in the catalogue.
There's only one color channel.

Polygon Counts:
The original mesh have nearly 100 000 polys so I've worked hard to lower the polys to resonable amount. So here it is:

Medium Buddha have 3452 vertices and 4054 faces
Small - 2916 vertices and 3304 faces
Mini - 2673 vertices and 2946 faces
Micro - 1919 vertices and 1969 faces

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Wow that's really cool! I have the huge Bhudda and i love it. But i'm not comfortable downloading another extracting program (can't open 7z).
Is it possible to upload it in a zip or rar file? Sorry if i'm being difficult.

But great work!!

I love this! I'm recreating my own house and my kitchen is asian themed (lots of Buddha decorating it, though all my "micro" sized ones are in different poses, and are of the chubbier variety), so this is PERFECT! Just wish I could set a Buddha on top of my microwave!

What program do you use to extract? WinZIP or WinRAR should open the 7z files. Unless you're on a Mac and using something else. Then you're kind of stuck.

I use 7-zip to compress the files. It's a very good, free program. You can find it here:

http://www.7-zip.org/download.html

7-zip can unpack zip, rar and 7z-files.

That's pretty cool. I can definitely use this but I can just imagine the horror when your Sim is leaving and some guy just 'Kick' Buddha. XD

I've been wanting for a long time to do a scene for the season 4 Stationery Voyagers episode "Infestation," a title card in which the Drismabons invade and start desecrating places of worship around the world, as a way of emphasizing that it's the last season and things just got serious..

I've got one scene where they're blowing up the Kaaba with a nuclear missile, but the title card needed something that would make the Drismabons look especially like complete jerks. I was considering showing them having toppled a Buddhist temple, having trashed a giant Buddha statue and dancing on top of it while several monks look on in horror and / or shout curses at them. The only problem? I could never find a Buddha statue to make the greenscreen illusion with.

And now, you've solved that problem. So thank you, greatly.
