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 my second conversion I have completed and I am really new to meshing. I have for you today a conversion I did of the Serenity Statue that was from TS2 Apartment Life! I really missed this statue so I decided to convert it for ts3
There are 3 sizes small, medium and large. The small was originally scaled down by pixi1971 @ black pearl sims. These are not recolorable. I also had to edit the top and remove it as no matter how many times I tried editing it to look right it looked very flat. I hope that you guys like this as much as I have converting them.The objects can be found under misc decor and decor all the prices for these objects are 25 sim dollars each. The custom icon is of a bronze peacock statue. Now for the fun stuff Pics and Poly info

Credit goes to Peter L Jones and Inge Jones for their S3PE and object cloner
Wes H for his milkshape plug in

Pixi1971 for her scaled down version of this statue

Polygon Counts:

Medium Statue

Large Statue
Total faces = 1388, Total Vertices = 973

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.

I don't know if anyone else has noticed but there aren't many statues that fulfil a Sim's wish for statues worth 500 simoleons or more. Would you consider repricing these? Perhaps 100, 250, and 500? Thank you!
I also wanted to say that I like these very much and thank you for creating them.

I agree with Simeon Simmering; the price should be much higher. For TS2 I had a Categorizer for CC objects that let me easily change the price. For TS3, I have no idea.
