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 theme has totally three parts:
1. Ruin building blocks, go-through-able
2. Ruin invisible benches and chair, marked with ivy (links coming soon)
3. Ruin Ivy decorations, go-through-able (links coming soon)

Here is the first part: 10 pieces building blocks

Perhaps, from first look, you find this set is similar like the Get Together ruins stuffs. As a matter of fact, there are a lot of works I made in this set:

Feature 1: go-through builging objects
Like my Useful ruin stairs, these 10 pieces ruin stuffs are all complete go-through objects. They have the numbers in name, sorted after the ruined stairs set: ArtruiRuinGoThrough6 - 15.
You are able to put them on the ground of pool without using bb.moveobjects cheats. (To put them on the edge of pool needs MOO cheat.)
See the screenshot below: It's exited to build a under water world with these ruins stuffs! The test tell us: the pool is swimable, although it is covered with these building stuffs.



Feature 2: adjusted the heights
The ArtruiRuinGoThrough8 - 15 have all seat heights. They work with invisible benches and chair (Set part 2), which make a lot of combinations of group seaters.
The number 8 to 14 have all one brick thick underground parts. You will need those parts, e.g. if you use them to decorate the edges of pool.
Base on this height, one can easily pile up these building blocks. Raise a block of them with 6 clicks (more), it will be put it exactly on the next height level. I've built the highest ruin wall (In the example below) by using the number 10 block (mostly).



Feature 3: different applications
The ArtruiRuinGoThrough6 is made to decorate the foundation trim. Enable MOO cheat at first. Then, just place it in grid like the screenshot below.
The ArtruiRuinGoThrough7 is made to decorate the pool trim. Enable MOO cheat, too. Then, just place it in grid like the screenshot below.



Feature 4: meshes and textures edits
I have re-UV-maped the meshes, mainly to fix bugs that the top and sides surfaces of some bricks of the GT items don't coincide to each other. (See examples in: Artrui_ruinBuildingBlocks_remapANDtexturePaint.jpg)
I have also painted the texture partly. Especially, I've painted the lower part of the side-surfaces with similar colors from it's upper part. The lower part in those GT items is darker. It's for the case of stacking them to a wall.

Feature 5: matched colors
Some colors from different groups of the GT ruins items don't match each other (e.g. the gray in ruined stairs and gray in the Captured Ruin). I've adjusted the colors. These are made to match my ruined stairs set (11 colors for each).

Feature 6: use one texture-set
The ArtruiRuinGoThrough7 - 15 are selective clone. All of them use the textures from the ArtruiRuinGoThrough6. Because, I don't want to make the whole set too big.
They have also the same swatch colors and order.
