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.
This is a continuation of my effort to increase the number of tabletop plants.
Here you have the good old philodendron and palm, half size.
The flowerbox has lost its base. And the other hanging pot got pulled down, the flowery one.
These latter two have a recolor each as well. So overall 6 plants again. Feel free to recolor any of my stuff by the way, if you'd like more variation.

Like the previous ones, these have some dark parts too, sorry about that.
All cost 60§ and are in the Plants category. (duh)
Pots are recolorable with Create A Style.



Polygon Counts:
Philodendron: 780 faces, 612 vertices
Palm: 898 faces, 775 vertices
Flowerbox white/green: 768 faces, 633 vertices
Flowerpot white/red: 444 faces, 322 vertices

As usual, thanks to

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.

Your plants are the best!

Is it possible to make a version of these flower boxes that can go along the top of fences?

Not buying TS4 until Terrain Sculpting is back and cheatless Split Levels are added!
Here's an idea: Stairs Pitch Slider.

Wonderful lemoncandy. Thank you!

EDIT: Will you be adding the tulips as table top plants any time in the future?

Great work! I have your other plant collection and those look great in game! I can't wait to see these there as well!

By the way, I haven't noticed any dark areas on the plants, and if I did, I didn't think they were too distracting. No worries!

Thanks for the hard work!!

What tulips, I can't see any tulips in the game now or you mean the calla lily?

Thank you ! I love what you did with the planter, too. By the way, I made a plant (a rescaling of the small topiary) and it had dark spots too, so I think I see what you mean (actually, I had a thread about that in the meshing section). But yours seem perfectly all-right… ^^

Yes I saw that thread and still hoping someone experienced would give a solution to it. It's definitely not a texturemapping problem.

Just the moveobjects cheat. It's a nightstand and 2 coffee tables.
