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.
Ever wanted a wall calendar for your game? Honestly, neither had I. Well, not until Pets came out and they gave us a cute, little calendar that was absolutely useless. Then, in the lovely spirit of fun and (friendly) competition, MTS Staff decided to hold a calendar contest. What a way to combine the two! The efforts of all of that work can now be showcased here! Each month's winner has earned a place on this official calendar.


This painting is the Modern Painting that uses the mesh of the Goth Painting so, technically a new mesh. It is base game compatible. It is one object with 12 different presets for each of the months. The months are in order so, when you are ready to switch over, just choose the next image in the presets. You will find it under Decorative -> Wall Hangings for the low, low price of §50. Because of the presets, you can just change the months using CAST without having to rebuy, saving your sims §550 over the course of a year! Thrifty, eh? The pushpins are recolorable for each of the presets as well. They are each different from each other already but can be changed to whatever your sim's heart desires. The item has been flagged to be shiftable up and down walls as well if you ever feel you need to move it just a smidge up, no, no, not that far, down a bit more, er, back up. Yes! Right there.


NameChannelsPriceCatalog LocationPolygon Count hi/low
2012 Wall Calendar250Buy Mode>Decorative>Wallhangings130/8

Note: The first channel allows for changing of the preset; the actual color does nothing. The second channel is the pushpins which are not really meant to have patterns. They can but the surface area for them is so small that you likely won't see it so solid colors (like real tacks) are best.

Special thanks and congratulations go out to all of our winners: Rebents, missroxor, Miuki, LadyAwesome, Misanthrope, x-fireflies-x, leesester, frostypineapple, AMOrel_97, simsample, shishi_hineko, and Lunararc. For a full list of entries, please see the original entry table.

Polygon Counts:
High: 130
Low: 8

Additional Credits:
- MTS Staff for judging entries and contestants for entering. Would not have been possible without all ofyou!
- Leesester, for fixing my mesh, giving me recolors, and helping me through this.
- Creators of S3OC, S3PE, TT3.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

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.

If you look on the overview section of the download, there is a link to the full list of entrants. From there, you can see all of the images entered, in full size.

I liked how each month has the appropriate number of days, and weren't just identical clones. It was a very nice touch. Are the months actually written in simlish? Or is it some funky font?
