This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Another creation on the awesome Large Canvas by Flabaliki. This package contains six Simlish billboards to decorate your community lots or place wherever you want a bit of authentic Simlish advertisement. The first three are travel ads for the World Adventures destinations of China, Egypt and France. There's also an ad for Hogan's Deep Fried Diner and another for "Mama Baker's Key Lime Pie." All of those have two-channel recolorable frames, so they are equally at home in the steel and concrete of Bridgeport or the terra cotta and tile of Isla Paradiso. (Unlike the rest of the art I have uploded, the main images of these paintings are not CAStable. Only the frames can be recolored.)

The last one is not recolorable at all. It's a more modern ad for the "Sim Jim Fall Collection" -- I originally made it before Seasons came out, hence the slogan.

The object is named "Four-Tile Billboards" and is located in Buy Mode/Decorative/Wall Hangings. The billboards are 800 simoleons to purchase.

Additional Credits:
Many thanks to Flabaliki for posting the large canvas and allowing others to recolor it. Thanks also to inkandchaos for the Simlish font.

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 have been looking for something similar to this for a long time. The only difference between the mod in my head and yours, this one is so much more classy! Thank you. The bare spots on building are something of a sore spot to me. Thank you.
