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.

I always thought that the water in Sims 2 was much too blue and unrealistic. Here's a new possibility to add a lot more naturalness to your sim's environment, a small set containing three new colors to place over lakes or ponds (each one comes in two sizes) and an animated river surface.
-How to use them:
All items included are flat planes with transprent color textures. They are placed directly on the water surfaces just like the waterplants. You can see the inside of your ponds etc. through them just like through the normal water. You can remove the planes just like every other object and your water will be normal again.
Found under: Buy Mode->Decorative->Misc. AND Build Mode-> Garden Plants. Price: 11 per object



The river tile simulates a flowing movement. It is sized 3x3 and you can place as many as you want back-to-back or side by side.


See a video of the animation here (low video quality):

IMPORTANT: When you start the time first the tiles will change their flowing direction. You have to stop the time again and adjust them once again but then they will stay in the correct position!
The object's direction (that green rrow) is converse to the flowing direction!

I hope that it will be a contribution to a better playing experience for you!

Polygon Counts:
All included meshes have no more than exactly 4 Vertices
