Information (Click for more details):
This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
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 MTS2 - check the sidebar.
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.
Here are some wildflowers for your meadows, forests, parks and roadsides. They are intended to add a little life to Sims, where most things do not change. They look different in the various seasons - anemones, for example, flower in the spring and are hardly noticeable by fall, while pinks have mostly buds in spring and will bloom in summer and autumn.
Flowers (Build/plants/flowers, for 7 simoleons):
1. Maiden pinks: a "clump" version and a scattered version, the latter slaved to the former, plus two recolours.
2. Cornflowers: a "clump" version and a scattered version, the latter slaved to the former, plus four recolours.
3. Anemones: mesh plus four recolours.
Shrubs (Build/plants/shrubs, for 14 simoleons):
4. Verbascum (mullein) plant based on Macarossi's mesh and textures, plus four recolours.
5. Foxglove plant based on a mesh and textures by Kate at Parsimonious, plus four recolours.
These plants do not require either pruning or watering. Also, being wild plants, they are intentionally smaller and less showy. The 5 flowers allow object and sim intersection, meaning that they can be placed on the same square with other objects, and sims will walk through them. They are also height-adjustable with AL.
Obviously, the changing function only works if Seasons is installed. The plants can also be used without Seasons, though: in that case only the summer state will appear.
If you would like to recolour these or any other custom seasons-compatible plant, please see my notes here.
Polygon Counts: Warning! Polys are a little higher than normal, don't use too many on one lot.
Meshes vary by season; only the states with the highest poly count are listed.
Anemones: 1089 faces, 1140 vertices
Cornflowers (both versions): 1125 f, 1576 v.
Maiden pinks (clump): 1063 f, 1362 v
Maiden pinks (scattered): 1155 f, 1509 v
Verbascum: 1118 f, 1010 v
Foxgloves: 647 f, 777 v
I am grateful to Bienchen for the original template;
To Kate for the permission to use her mesh;
To Macarossi for his/her lenient policy regarding the use of their meshes;
To MogHughson for the tutorial on custom thumbnail cameras used in some of the objects.
