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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Created and Textured in MilkShape 3D 1.7.5 & 1.7.6
Packaged using SimPE 48c
EP-Ready (uni & nl not required)

Poly Counts :-

Grave 001 = 2492
Grave 002 = 142

These were cloned from the 'Manor House Paree Dining Table'. Both function the same in that a Sims gravestone can be placed inside as if it is sitting on a table surface, as the clickable area has been alterd. This allows the normal functions of the gravestone.

There was a nice article on Yahoo! news about how the above-ground cemeteries made it through Katrina just fine. I want to see them someday too.

I'm having such a great time decorating my graveyards! Thanks, Gromit!

No they don't come with ghosts. The function behind these is so you can place an existing Sims grave marker either urn or garvestone in it and have all the options still that exist for the grave markers including the ghosts. Realy just to inhance the appearance of the gravestones.

Well, to be honest, I think it has to do with the new way MTS2 is laid out.
The "Thanks" button just isnt as "there" as it used to be.

Yes, this will make a nice New Orleans... all I need now is AB (Aaron Brooks, QB for the Saints) and a couple of hoboes, and maybe a Cafe Du Monde too, complete with stupid beignet eating pigeons (no telling how many times they stole mine) and... oh, am I ranting? Sorry. Great job on them!

Great job! Now I can make St. Louis cemetery. I wish I had visited New Orleans before Katrina stroke...

For Anglknghts

I have just tried to download both of them (14:33 PM 21/11/06) and they downloaded ok. Please try again. If you still don't have any success 'private message' me and perhaps I could e-mail you the file.

They should download ok it may have just been a conection glitch.

All the best gromit :-)

Hi me and my boyfriend love these. We were wondering though if there is a reason why they are not showing up from the neorborhood view. He has this great vamp club in a cematary with these above ground tombs decorating around it but from neorborhood view he cant see it. If there is a way to fix that we would love it.

this download has fixed the problem with your previous tomb: when ghosts levitate it, you cant see the tombstone underneth!!! thanks, this will be realy helpful in my movies!

my personal life can be supported by veiwing this video: and others on my youtube page. I believe there's a few building tutorials there aswell. I create rather sporadically, so excuse me if I'm gone from this website for months or years at a time.
