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.
The 3 gravestones included in this set will be worthy to commemorate lost relatives and add realism to your graveyards or similar lots...

The grave cross has beautiful ornaments inspired by Celtic and Christian art. The carved flowers of the second headstone are also a pleausre for your sims' eyes. The lat and smallest stone is rather simple and weatherbeaten but the dove as symbol of peace and freedom will mollify the sorrow of the bereaved.


Two high resolution pictures to show the texture quality:


Polygon Counts:
Gravestone with carved Flowers: 167
Gravestone wit carved Peace Dove: 180
Grave Cross: 278

Yes of course, if you want to upload a house with one of my meshes or recolours included here on MTS or another free site you can do it without asking for permission. But it's ver polite that you did it anyway!

Jon119, I've been Simming for a lot of years now, and rarely does an artist come along with your obvious talent. As executive editor of a magazine in Asia, I see a lot of creative work and your is in the top two percent! Kudos my man! I'm anxious to see what other treasures you have in store for us! Thank you so very much for your superb efforts. Elder Simmer, Steton

You can use the boolprop allow45degreeangleofrotation true cheat if any of these takes more than 1 sqare to angle the gravestone (use < and > to angle objects) and see if a gravestone can fit, the cheat makes the object only use 1 sqare but it doesn't shrink the object. Does this make sense?? I hope I helped!

you know u also can use the "moveobjects on" cheat to have the headstones moved over the real grave and the real grave won't be deleted also it won't turn red when trying to move it over the grave
