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.

OMG, how many pipe things do you need?!??? Ask any plumber and he will tell you 'more than the 16 you see here....

Use Fat D's Upshift and Downshift and you can have 3x that number. Your sims may not be able to build a catalytic cracking unit, but they should have more than enough pipe to furnish their mechanical room.

How many colors do you need? Ask any mechanical supervisor and he'll tell you, 'WTF do I care. They leak, I fix them. You can paint them any *@*!%&! color you want.' So we did.

The valve and pipe are separate subsets and can be independently selected. There are 9 different valve colors and 7 pipe colors. Everybody wanted to play with the pipe. Some of the 'valves' are recolored to look like guages.

The repository method was used. Fallout Diner Industrial Pipe Master must be in your download folder for these to appear correctly. This is the file you recolor.

The 'stand up' pipes were cloned from a statue, and will appear in decorative>statue. The overhead pipes were cloned from the hanging plant (so your sims can walk under them). They appear in decorative>plants. There is a collection file to pull them all together.

We had a lot of fun coloring and building with these. We hope you do too.

The description is hilarious. Who wrote it?
Oh, nice pipes by the way

I've never been married, but I tell people I'm divorced so they won't think something is wrong with me.

I am such a pipework junkie. These are such beautiful pipes. Oh my dog, I'm downloading another huge pipework set to go with Olemantiker's and Cyclonesue's and fiddlededee's pipes. Oh noes. My poor sims. They have to live with all the pipes in the world. Thank you! You mephistophical purity group, you, pushing my pipework button.

As someone who has to deal with pipes, valves and gauges everyday, I say you guys did a great job.

Now, I just need to find some levers.

Thank you very much!

All -- we are so pleased you like them. Hope you have a great time with them.

Eedgan -- I'm responsible for the writing. Don't tell my mom or I'll have to put a couple quarters in the 'bad word' jar.

Loverat -- You don't have all the right stuff to build a cat cracker -- you still need bubble gum, bailing wire, and chewing tobacco. I might have seen gum somewhere, but I have never seen bailing wire or chewing tobacco in the sim world. Bailing wire is even getting hard to find in the real world. All the new bailers use twine.

However, I bet you could build a really rad quarkian hyperdrive out of these. You would need ultra pure pixelated piping, phantasmaglorius photoshopping, and pamperd pet dander. The quarkian hyperdrive runs on bull s**t, and there is plenty of that around.

Retired from the Sims world. Please continue to enjoy my creations. Thank you to everyone who helped -- by either giving me the tools and knowledge to create or by encouraging me & downloading my creations. The Sims community is the BEST!

OMG, how many pipe things do you need?!???
I'll never have enough pipes in my games! Neva! I need them even more if they are rusty-looking and connecting so I can make them run all over my lots *happy dance*

Thanks, this is a really nice set, can't wait to play around with it.

I need pipes to decorate a lot like they're the sewers. Because TMNT live in sewers, obviously.
