If Wishes Were Seahorses

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.
If wishes were seahorses…

...beggars would ride underwater and drown? Or perhaps swim? You will get both the very best in crustacean philosophy and interior design when you hang these seahorses on your wall!

There are two meshes, If Wishes Were Seahorses (the momma seahorse), and If Wishes Were Seahorses, Junior (the baby seahorse). You can mix and match them in any way you like. While they come with four preset variations, they are fully recolorable, with one color channel.

They are a natural for the little Simlet’s room, yet they work equally well in the bathroom or kitchen or any other room that needs a marine touch.

No expansion or stuff packs are needed. Both meshes were play tested on a base game fully patched to 1.36, and on a game full of expansions and stuff packs using 1.36. They might work on other levels, but there are no guarantees.

Note: No matter what I did, I was unable to get the shadows I created to appear on the walls, though they were fully visible in Milkshape and in TSRW. Possibly, there is a bug at work here, but that won’t affect your game. You just won’t see my beautiful shadows.

I love thanks and welcome comments, and of course, please report any problems you have here in this thread so that my knuckle-dragging gopher Norton can fix them.

Tools used: Maya, Blender, Milkshape, TSRW, S3PE, Roadkill 1.1, Sims 3 Pack MultiInstaller, Photoshop CS6
