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.
Hi. Here's something I've been working on for a loooong time:
Victoria - Amazonian water lily, a must-have for any botanical garden with a pond.

Set includes:

- Victoria Plant Leaves (price: 400S) four meshes in one file (random, just like water plants from base game)

- Victoria Plant Buds & Flowers (390S) three buds and large flower in one file, contains four color options

- Leaves recolor

- Four fancy recolors of Buds & Flowers

Found in:
Build mode/Garden center/flowers

Victoria leaves and flowers can be placed in 'normal' ponds without cheats,
but to achieve natural look "moveObjects on" & "boolprop snapobjectstogrid false" cheats are essential.

Bonus Pack:

- Tall Water Reed (80S) (new mesh) & one recolor
- Duckweed, or "Green Water Fluff" (15S) (note: catalog thumbnail seems empty, I didn't manage to fix it)
- Two recolors of "Genetically Engineered Water Lily" - darker flowers make a nice background for Victoria

All available in
Build mode/Garden center/flowers

- Stone Pool Wall x 3 (10S)
Build mode/walls/stone

- Pond Water Layer (11S) Build mode/Misc/Pool Accessories
Dark translucent layer that will make a swimming pool look like a pond - two sizes in one file.
Not compatible with 'normal' ponds as it's a bit lower than the ground level to prevent overlapping with the floor tiles
(note: Sims will not walk on the layer's surface).

- Floating Venus - Pond Sculpture (3140S) - Floats on water, three random sizes in one file.
Buy mode/Decorative/Sculptures

I've generated random GUIDs for my mesh files.
