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.
The 3 gravestones included in this set will be worthy to commemorate lost relatives and add realism to your graveyards or similar lots...

The grave cross has beautiful ornaments inspired by Celtic and Christian art. The carved flowers of the second headstone are also a pleausre for your sims' eyes. The lat and smallest stone is rather simple and weatherbeaten but the dove as symbol of peace and freedom will mollify the sorrow of the bereaved.


Two high resolution pictures to show the texture quality:


Polygon Counts:
Gravestone with carved Flowers: 167
Gravestone wit carved Peace Dove: 180
Grave Cross: 278

Do these fit over actual Sim gravestones or are they just statues?

Thanks, everyone! I'm always pleased about everyone who writes a friendly comment

harlequin_eyes: They are normal statues and can be placed wherever you want. The Maxis gravestones are not replaced.

Finally some more gravestones for my sims. They never seem to have enough creepy cemeteries in their backyard. These are absolutely wonderful, love the quality thanks so much for sharing.

#17 Old 23rd Oct 2008 at 3:59 PM
Yay, finally here :D!
And what did I say ? It's the truth now, just trust your simming skills, they're wonderful ^-^!
And because of that these gravestones are very good, too. (I needed some for picture-taking and lost the older ones, but these are more detailed anyway, in my opinion !).
So, thanks for sharing ^-^.

Wow, those are some great textures! Did you make them yourself? (i.e. your photos?)

You can have as much dust as you like because it's got no calories!

That's not what I meant. User bootsbrisket once made tombstones that are actually shaped to fit over Sim headstones so you can use them in a graveyard without depriving it of actual graves. I love the statues but have no use for them if I can only use them as statues and not as, headstone-enhancers, if you will.

Ah, ok but I have to negate that question, too. But if one would make them defaults for the maxis headstones as I wrote in the other post it would basically have the same effect, doesn't it?
