I always need more neighborhood deco that is appropriate for my medieval-ish hood. These really look good in game and is nice having some variety in colors for these pieces. Thanks for sharing them.

I didn't see the signs in the pack. I didn't want the signs, so I would have deleted them, but others may want them. I didn't download the trees, so maybe they were in that file, although the file name shows they should be in with the silo and barns.

The more neighbourhood deco, the better Thanks very much for these! They look wonderful and I'm sure I can put them to good use.

cheshirekat is right, the signs are not included.

It's nice to have some variety for the signs and the pinewoods look good. Thanks!

Thank you, chesirecat and psychosim. I have updated the "Barns" file and made sure that it contains the signs now.

Sweet! Since I finally got up off my butt and decided to put effort into the neighborhood view, I can't get enough of this stuff. Especially trees, so I LOVE the pine forests. The one from AL is nice, but sometimes it's too big and sometimes I want more than one color, so this is great! :D

I usually don't care about hood deco, but I'm seriously considering dowloading these!

The barns are quite lovely, would definitely love to see more colors in the future..

Thank you very much, finally my neighborhoods can have farmhouses that don't look like they were painted by a pre-schooler :D

Thanks for sharing! Btw a few of the pine trees, after I place them, disappear when I click on either the Family Bin or Lots. But when I click back on Neighborhood decor, they reappear. O_o

I feel like I must give thanks to this. I created a new neighborhood. And the first things I place are all from this set!
