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.
While building 'Oi Dong Monastery' a few items were needed for which there was no satisfactory buy item available [Oi Dong would just be any old monastery without procrastinators and bonsai mountains.

Well, it must be about seven years since I last did any meshing, nevertheless determination to complete Oi Dong made it imperative that I tackle the problem.

Many hours later, I made some basic items with which I decorated my monastery.
However, being fully aware that not everyone would want to download these items with the building, I have packaged them separately so that if anyone is interested, they are available.

I used Milkshape 3D 1.8.5
UV Mapper
TSR Workshop [sorry, but it was easier for a numpty like me to use this time]


These can all be found in décor/miscellaneous, except for the large one which is in décor/statues.
The smaller ones cannot be recoloured, the medium-large and large ones can.
The two larger ones have script on them, the medium-large has ‘simlish’ the large one has sanscrit.
Tiny - 65; Small - 20; Medium - 150; Medium-large - 255; Large -1,650.

Bonsai Mountains

This is also in decor/miscellaneous.
I tried for ages to enable better colouring, but whatever I did the design seemed to just want to split itself over the mesh, so that the mountains and the dish always end up made out of the same material.
I experimented with different recolours, and imo patterns in darker colours with a pronounced texture or design work best.
Cost: 35

Discworld Picture Set

For fun, and a ‘finishing touch’ I decided to add some Disworld specific paintings. I found some nice pictures on the web, but just as I was about to upload them read the new requirements for wall decorations. So having decided to make some I was not to be put off! Hence, I have spent the last couple of weeks getting my sim to be a brilliant artist so she could paint some pictures for Oi Dong. Lol. I even made a Terry Pratchett sim for her to life draw. [I didn’t use those in the end though!]
All pictures have either been painted in the game or made by me.
Cost: 45
