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.

A little fun and whimsy for your game! A Plumbob arch! This mesh has been in the base game files many years now? It's been sitting in my WIP folder for two, figured it's about time to finish it up. Maxis was so kind as to provide not only the mesh, but the texture as well! The mesh needed a bit of work since there was only one side in the game files. It's a bit industrial/warehouse/commericial-ish with it's stylishly outdated red brick and metal baseboard trim. But it's got that fun and quirky Plumbob concrete deco right at the top!

Wow - who knew. It's amazing what they left in the files as sort-of junk. And thanks.
