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.

Hello All,

Want to bring the great outdoors into your Sims' homes? Today we have a nice collection of six potted trees for your gaming pleasure. These are Maxis trees which have been resized and made available for inside or outside use. They are new four-tile pot plants, made so they do not cut into the walls; this also means the poly counts are spread out over the four tiles. Resizing and recolouring by Michelle, cloning and miscellaneous 'important stuff' by Debra. Cloned from the Base Game 'No-Fuss Ficus'.

To cut down on recolours and make recolouring easier all the pots are slaved to the Breadfruit tree pot, (the trees are not slaved). You only need to recolour the Breadfruit tree pot and have the Breadfruit Tree in game for the pot recolours to show up, as there are 2 subsets the trees can also be recoloured.

ETA: Klaartje has uploaded some beautiful recolours of our 'Fanciful Forest Pot', check them out HERE.

Made for the Base game - No EP's or SP's required.

Found: Buy Mode > Decorative > Plants. Price: §186


Files have been compressed and checked in game. Chart is included in the zip file.

Polygon Counts:
Potted Birch = 2080
Potted Breadfruit = 2428
Potted EasyShade Bay Tree = 2602
Potted Japanese Maple = 1452
Potted Palm Copernica = 1618
Potted Philodendron = 1514

For some reason my computer refuses to unzip the Birch Tree folder. Someone else have this problem?

I just checked, I too get an error. The file is invalid. Although I noticed that there are two Birch Tree folders. One of them is empty...the other has the mesh and the two recolor files by Michelle. Those files unzipped just fine.

@ roxmaniac, Penelope T & kluless, thanks for letting us know there was a problem with the Birch Tree folder. I have no idea why that was happening, never seen it before and I zipped all the files the same way. Sorry for any inconvenience it has caused you or anyone else, I have re-zipped the folders and replaced the zip file, by the looks of it this has fixed the problem. Once again thank you and please accept my apologies.

Thanks for the fix. By the way, these all look terrific in game...as does the new pot recolors.
