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.

Hi,

another little upload.
As some of you may know, I'm currently in one of the contests on S2C and I noticed a need for more props and effects.
So here's a little simple fog object, to make your haunted mansions a little bit more haunted.

Made in Blender, UV Mapper, Paint Shop, SimPE Poly's: 120

Notes: Find it in Decorative/Misc
Comes in white, grey, black (and a pink version I keep for my own nefarious purposes ), but you're of course welcome to make your own recolours.
Looks a LOT better at night than during daytime.



White fog at night


Grey fog



Smokey black fog

What a simple yet extremely useful little item! I'm sure it will have its uses-particularly in images-outside of haunted houses, too. Nice idea-- thanks for making it.

Oh, that is totally cool Lethe... and I could have used it, like, yesterday, psh. :giggle: Just kidding... I looove it though, and I think it'd work very well in combination with Eric's sim effects as those end up toward the upper body, and this would do well to cover the ground around a smoking sim for a delicious fog effect. Thank you! I'm sure I'll get tons of use out of this. :D
