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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Update march 23, 2008: The Alchemist's Spyglass is updated for Free Time. Please download and let it overwrite the old one. Find it in post 11

Welcome traveller,

so you're looking for something new? Or something very old?
These pages will take you straight to the darker ages. You'll find echoing halls and medieval towns full of shadowy corners that could just house a monster. On the town square you'll find the paupers, scrounging to get their next meal and wearing rags to cover themselves. Looking down on them are the cold hearted nobles, the gypsies and the bandits, all making their way in life despite everyone else. In dank basements alchemists and wizard pore over tomes written on black paper, and try to make lead into gold.

We will also take you to victorian times, to a world that is certainly more elegant, but not less dangerous. In the backrooms of abandoned mansions, men who think they are gods tinker with howling contraptions and flying machines.

Table of contents

This project is very wide-ranging, including objects, lots, hair and rooms filled to bursting with clothes. Please don't stray from the path, traveller.

First of all, this is a great project, and I've been using several of the pieces for a long time. I just started using some of the clothes, and there seems to be a problem with one of the child male meshes. I tried to re-download it, and then I removed the meshes from subfolders, but the problem persists. I think it is both MESH-tig-cm-tunic-shortalpha-barefeet.package or MESH-tig-mc-tunicshort-alpha-boots.package, but not the ten shirt. I don't know how to add a picture, but if someone told me how I could post one. The top part looks flesh colored, and the bottom part flares out like a skirt instead of lying flat. It looks pretty funky. Is there an edit available?

Which mesh links? I've just checked and they all seem to work.

What I lack in decorum, I make up for with an absence of tact.

This is a great upload for anyone who wants to turn their neighborhood medieval. A lot of really good material.

to Tiggerypum, Liz, Alex and Zoej:
We will be using a few pieces of clothing you posted as custom uniforms for a set of ancient careers we are making. Thanks for allowing the sharing of files in your policy! I will link you when the upload is up so you can see what we did.

The theme team efforts of putting these projects together makes setting up a theme neighborhood that sooooo much easier. I salute this team and all the time you have put into creating such wonderful pieces of art for the rest of us simmers to play with.
