This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text 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.
Atavera has created a wonderful Classic Contrabass, and I've prepared a couple of recolours for it: Mahogany and White.

You need to download the MESH for the Contrabass, that can be found HERE

Lovely, Numenor thank you so much for the recolors. Could you buy any chance do one in gold? I would do it but trying to do recolors is still somewhat confusing to me. Thank you

These are absolutely gorgeous, but do they work with his new V3 patch?

Yes, the V3 version differs from the previous one mainly for the BHAV functions. The mesh has the same structure (at least, for the "bass" recolourable subset), and the object has the same GUID: my recolours will work on this version, too.

I've finally started my Journal. Information only, no questions.

Default Horrorpops Bass
I love this bass! And I really wanted a Horrorpops one, too, so I made one. I hope it works.... I found a pic with a good shot of her bass and transferred it onto the white bass.... It's not perfect, but it's what I did. I attached the .rar and some pictures of it being used in the game. I hope this is where I upload it... Thanks Numenor. (and atavera).

28 NOV 2006 - Atavera has removed all his stuff from MTS2, after having put his creations in the "public domain". Since the Contrabass was created per my specific request, I'm reposting here the original contrabass mesh by Atavera.
@Atavera: if this is not fine with you, let me know, and I will immediately remove the Contrabass mesh (and perhaps my recolours, that would be useless, without the mesh...)
