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.
This is the second to last part of my plant set - and definitely my favorite.
There are a total of 31 meshes in 12 styles.

This is a picture of all of the meshes that have various sizes. Pictures of all other meshes are attached.


Like all the other plants I've made, each mesh comes with multiple variations, one or more recolorable channels, and they are all base game compatible.

These can be used on the ground, or in my pots. The 'Flat Shrub' and 'Trailing Shrub' are intended to used in pots, but can also sit on the ground. If placed on the ground the leaves clip but they can be useful for areas like steep cliffs or river bed walls.

The 'Canopy Tree' is a very high poly mesh, so use sparingly on lots.

Here's the grass mesh, you can find more close up pictures of the other meshes below.


Enjoy!

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.

I would like to know why you removed your coments on your site as to the regards of the infinity wall pool, how it cuts the pool at the top to shreds, plus also how these plants cause blue lot syndrome, I get peed off when you cannot be bothered to answer simple questions, however it does not matter anymore, ive deleted your files and my game runs way better no blue lot syndrome.

I'm sorry you've had problems. And the reason there are no comments on my homepage is because the webserver does not support them anymore and I have yet to figure out how to add them. I apologize for not being technologically saavy. I have not heard of any issues with the plants, can you tell me which ones you were having issues with? All my objects are updated for the newest patch, if you are not updated this may cause issues.
