This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Ashillion has repacked the rocks to make them viewable from map view. Apparently there was an issue with that, which he fixed. You can download his version (all rocks together) on Mediafire here ---> New Rocks

I'm sure I'm not the only one disappointed by the lack of a decent rock selection for use when landscaping gardens and such. Now these rocks, I've extracted from the game were for use as neighborhood/world decoration. These are rather extremely large. However, for those of you who are adept with terrain sculpting tools and the moveObject cheat, these rock may come in pretty useful.

Now one weird thing I haven't really played around with. When first testing these rocks out, I plopped one down right smack in the middle of a house, which it completely enveloped. And I clicked for my sim to interact with something inside the rock, and he walked right through the rock! There may be some use to that, so I left it. I am unsure if this may occur in other instances. I did try walking through one on a community lot which was vacant before I slapped the rocks down, and nothing inside the rocks to click on. But didn't path through or anything. Haven't really tested it much, so feedback is appreciated.

This is the Granite set. I also will upload the Mountain set, my computer crashed before I took screens. Completely unrelated to the game, my video card is defective. I may upload a lot utilizing these rocks, hopefully it will inspire others. There are a lot of possibilities of what you can create. There will be another set coming after the mountains, of miscellaneous mountain rocks.

I priced all rocks as 25 simoleons. Which is in between the prices of everything else in the rock section. So the whole set will be easy to discern. The titles seem to be numerical with lots of **** despite the fact I renamed everything. A few of them came out right, and I did the same thing with both and even re-extracted it, etc. If anyone knows of a solution to this I would like to know and will update with corrected versions.

The smallest rock in this set is taller than a single floor wall (no foundation). I have a sim and a wall piece in screens for size reference. I tried to take all shots from a similar perspective. Enjoy!

Pattern featured on walls is from my Japanese Theme pack. And model sim is my unused Legacy, Guile Reignson. I may upload him eventually, after I make some custom stuffs for him.
