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.
Hi Guys,
Would you test this for me please?

Made with Milkshape, SimPE v0.38, Mesh Tool this has its own unique (registered) GUID, is EP compatatble (not required) and is colour enabled.

Polygon Count: (412 = LOW )

This is more clutter for your homes. A triple photo frame available in five colours (Steel, Brass, Green, Blue and Black) together with three different sets of photos
a)My Avatar Sim and friends,
b)My Avatar Sim, his father and his 'friend'
c)Some people who you might recognise from the MTS2 Official Album. (I hope you guys don't mind :confused: ...if you do, pm me and I'll remove them from the download.)

The 'default' file is Silver/a...and is needed for the recolours to work.
The recolours are in a seperate download zip It is placeable almost everywhere in your game (looks nice on an end table)...AND can be placed on a fireplace mantle (they should be getting quite cluttered now )

This can be found in Decorative/All (and plants probably!).

Although it has NO interactions (or animations...sorry :confused: )... your Sims however, will look at it when placed in the game.

I increased the room points to 8 (hoping that my miserable Sim would like it more...but each time I tested it...I got a different reaction....from laugher to dissapointment!). This is NOT a hack, I just increased the points.

As it is cloned froom the small vase, both the frame AND the pictures subsets use the same texture file.
So, if you want to put your own pictures in the frame (using Object Workshop): the pictures are the 'plantvasetallbottle_flower' ...whilst the frame is the 'plantvasetallbottle_glass.

Anyway, please report any issues...and thanks for testing

Bob

Recolours: (As with all my objects,) please DO NOT post any files that contain my original mesh (the default file).

You are free to post your recolour files (preferably here, in the recolours section). Please pm before posting recolours....I always reply!.. as I love to see what you recolour artists can do with my stuff!

LOTS: Please do NOT include this (or any other of my objects) in any LOT uploads. These are BETA objects, here for testing, and not yet ready to 'inflict' on an unsuspecting LOT downloader

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

Bob, this is lightning in a bottle. I was just lamenting that I didn't have a photoframe that could be placed on a mantle. Lo and behold, you have created a triptych (sp?). Much appreciated and will be thrilled to try this out.

I don't know if you have another photoframe available. Will look anyway. I'd love to see a landscape-style frame that can be placed anywhere.

Jon Targaryen, I sent you a link by PM...don't know if it's going to be any good for you.
I've just had to start my neighbourhoods over again, and am filling the houses all new....These are going to be very useful.
Now they'll know where all their stuff has come from and who's made it ! Lol !

This is very nice thank you! I do have a question how did you put three items on a table and the fire place mantle? I have tried the boolprop snapObjectsToGrid false and it did not work. Or is there another way I am missing something on this please help. Thanks.

There are only certain 'special' objects than can be placed on the fireplace mantle...(or as 'multiple ' objects on a counter). You cannot place three items on a table or any other surface (correct me if I'm wrong :confused: ).

The 'boolprop snap to grid' MUST be used with the 'moveobjects on' cheat for the counter surfaces.

The fireplace does not need ANY cheats. The 'special' objects are placed one at a time (centre first, then left, then right) ...

The 'special' objects include the Bonzia tree, the small glass vase with yellow flower (Frost de Fleur) and the single blue pot plant thingy (appears in plants). I don;t know of any other Maxis objects ... but some of my other objects (that have been cloned from these three) will also work.

I hope this helps...
