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 a very old set of mine, my very first mesh set that I shared. Normally I don't spend time redoing old projects as I prefer to start new ones, but this was a request to make this set repository for easier recoloring. This was originally made for the N8iveSims project to build homes for the Seminole Chickee who begin building by using columns and beams. This set would also be useful for any type of western, southwest or medieval build though. The set has two upright columns (1 story and 2 story), two horizontal beams (3 tile and 6 tile), two horizontal half beams (3 tile and 6 tile), and one southwest style deco beam.



New features
  • Lower Poly
  • Repository
  • Remapped
  • Horizontals can be placed anywhere without cheats
  • Moves with M&G quarter tile cheat
  • Slightly smaller around but still full wall height
  • Found in Build / Columns for §1 (not sure why I had made them so cheap)

These objects will replace the old ones! They have the same internal names and GUIDs but I have renamed the actual file names to show the Master/Slave files. Please remove the old ones and replace with these.

Polygon Counts:
Round Column - 44
Round 2 Story - 172
Horizontal 3 tile - 44
Horizontal 6 tile - 172
Horizontal Half - 24
Horzontal Half 6 tile - 48
SW Deco - 68

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Nice rustic look to them. Perfect for a desert Adobe style house or a cottage in the woods. Just what I was looking for. Thanks for sharing some old but awesome stuff! :D

I use these all the time in my desert neighborhood...and I've recolored them. So now I guess I'll need to re-recolor them. Or fix my recolor. Or whatever. Thanks for the update. I have wanted to make more colors of these than I have, so now that they're repositoried, it'll be a lot easier.

I just love these columns, used them a lot of times. They look good in modern as well as in medieval rooms.

I've always loved these beams. Does the new version replace the old ones?
