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.
WARNING: Some people have reported these paintings causing their game to crash. As of 2013, use at your OWN RISK.
THESE WILL -NOT- REPLACE YOUR CURRENT PICTURES

For those of you who downloaded the "Antique" pictures, there is a slight fix - There was a spelling error in the "Mystery Man" painting. It said "eb teh" and it has been corrected to properly read "be the". This will NOT effect your game play at all, but if it bothers you as much as it does me, the package has been updated




Yup, I learned something new! These pictures have been sitting around the
whole break and I have finally applied them to something. Thanks to
Canoodle for helping me find a better way of presenting and organizing these
for you guys. Let me break it down for you. There are even pictures!





Colorful Set





Antique Set







Natural Set




AGAIN, THESE WILL -NOT- REPLACE YOUR CURRENT PICTURES


I really hope you enjoy them guys! Any questions, comments, concerns, pop
them down into the comments section, I will gladly answer anything you
have to ask about them! Have an awesome day yinz guys!

~Q

Additional Info
This is the tutorial that I learned from, by xanathon

To stack the paintings, I used BOTH of my techniques called "acrostacking" and "geoblending"

Polygon Counts:
Exact same as each of the paintings currently in your game.

Additional Credits:
Cthru - For helping me get the program working
Canoodle - For EXCELLENT support and feedback, they look so much better than what I was going to present
Leesester - For pushing me to get off my butt and do these!
Flabaliki - The wonderful animated picture :D
Fanseelamb - For feedback throughout the process

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Great job! Love those paintings, the way they doesn't look like a photo snapped oer the texture and those shining things.

Winning the Game
Don't be absurd. This is an EA game! What's to win? You have already lost 50 bucks when you bought a game that contains even less than TS2 base game, and you're gonna spend ten times more if you want to get all the features that you enjoyed in TS2!

Oh, I was hoping for this, I've found paintings around recently, but I wanted Sim-styled paintings, so this is perfect!!
