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.

Made with patch version 1.67

I have always loved the ladybug house from the sims 2 and really wanted one for the sims 3! So here it is, a converted ts2 to ts3 ladybug house (Or well.. Bug house) I gave it 3 different color options and they're CAStable. I also chose to edit the painted bits from it, which is a stencil and 2 without the stencil!

What does it do?

The bug house

The bug house is basically a decoration object, so it doesn't have any interactions. However, I did give it a custom script to let the game know which VFX effect it should be using. In this case, bees! Because who doesn't love bees? I would have gone with ladybugs though if the game had any ladybug VFX effects but sometimes you just have to do with what you have! shrugs

The default replacement bees

Like the bold line says, it's a default replacement! It might need supernatural for it to work, just to be safe, since I didn't get the chance to test it without supernatural. I do think that it needs it though since I found it's texture file in the EP7 folder's deltabuild and not in the basegame's deltabuild.

Note: The Bug house does NOT require the default replacement bees to work! If you don't want the default replacement bees in your game, that's totally cool! The game will just generates the bees we all know from the Beehive

Where can I find it?

The bug house is riiight under Outdoors>Lawn Ornaments>Ts2 to ts3 bughouse, price 100 simoleons.

Anything I should be aware of?
One thing, the bees won't show up directly. You need to unpause your game and wait for about 2 seconds to see them showing up. If they don't show up however, please let me know in the Comments!
