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.
Here's some decoration for your gardens.

In the area where I live, it's literally everywhere and I love it, it's green all year round, so I decided to make some for the Sims.

There are 4 sizes, in 4 separate files, each with a custom thumbnail. They are in Decorative/Plants and cost 10§. You can vary the sizes for a random pattern, and place them over each other for a more dense look. They will line up nice along walls and most fences, for thick fences you may need to place them holding the Alt key. They have no shadow, sorry.

There is one issue that I can't fix, it is very difficult to grab them once placed. Turn the camera so that it's facing the front of the object at ground level, and move the cursor around the bottom leaves until you find the spot to grab.

Polygon Counts:
Ivy 01: 250 faces, 500 vertices
Ivy 02: 438 faces, 876 vetices
Ivy 03: 654 faces, 1308 vertices
Ivy 04: 862 faces, 1724 vertices

Additional Credits:

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.
