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.

When I first found The Sims 2 download pages on the internet some years ago the first thing I was looking for were fountains. From the very beginning I was missing fountains in the basegame. Now I can present you this set containing five new fountains with realistic water animations that are all 100% basegame compatible!

HERE is a video to show the animations, but they look a lot better in game.

Each fountain is designed to fit a special atmosphere:

-The Asian Inspired Bamboo Fountain will look great in a Japanese garden but also in modern interiors.
-The Plaza Fountain has four water jets and basins and was inspired by classic city or village centre fountains.

-The Alpine Tree Trunk Fountain will be a great embellishment for rural gardens or for example in the Three Lakes vacation neighbourhood.
-The Marble Fountain is designed to be used incastles or palaces and their gardens.

-The Mediterranean Amphora Fountain has a rock basin in in that a Roman amphora pours clear water.

I hope that you all like my work and if so please don't forget to hit Thanks or write a comment :D
