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 so random but while i was scrolling through some debug objects i saw these mailboxes and i instantly wanted to make them functional.
I really like how they turned out, i also tested them so everything should work fine.

About the bills, i just slightly improved the texture and made them a little whiter and clear.


  • 100% base game compatible;
  • original mesh is from EA;
  • functional (works just like every mailbox);
[list]
you can find them under "Trashcans and Mailboxes" or by searching "Mailbox" in Buy Mode.
  • has the correct LODs and shadows;
  • 6 colour options :

I really love the look of these mailboxes, but when my sims go to get their mail, the whole body of the mailbox flips horizontally in the air for a moment. I imagine that it represents the opening of the original house mailbox door? I could not take a picture to show you, sorry.
Is this something that can be eliminated, please?
Thank you!

For flamedeyes, thanks. I put these in front of my Post Office build. My hashtags aren't working consistently. You might like to see it!
