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 a very simple office set titled "Incomplex" and it comes with 12 meshes for you to enjoy. I am still the slight newbie when it comes to meshing as I've only recently figured out how to create meshes from scratch (i.e. using the vertex tool to create faces), but I think I've gotten decent enough to share with you all this set.

This set includes: Desk, Chair, Computer, Wall Art, a useable Empty Bookcase, Rug, and 6 Clutter Items (open book, stacked books, standing books, messy paper pile, paper tray, and glass vase).

Rug$120Decor/Rugs4 Vertices 2 FacesNone2 and 1
Wall Art$75Decor/Wall Hangings180 Vertices 86 Faces60 Vertices 30 Faces2

The rug has four different presets, the first 3 have 2 color channels and the fourth has only 1. Most of the decor/clutter items are not recolorable because they were cloned from items that had no textures set up. Please reference the images with the red and green checkered patterns to see the recolorable parts of each mesh. Also, the painting comes set with a choice of four different in-game photos, the white portion and frame are the only recolorable parts of the mesh.

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'm not the only one that downloaded this mainly for the decor, right?
But it's a great set all in all!
