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.
Created and Textured in MilkShape 3D 1.7.5 & 1.7.6
Packaged using SimPE 48c
EP-Ready (uni & nl not required)
Colour-Enabled

Poly Counts :-

Grave 001 = 2492
Grave 002 = 142

These were cloned from the 'Manor House Paree Dining Table'. Both function the same in that a Sims gravestone can be placed inside as if it is sitting on a table surface, as the clickable area has been alterd. This allows the normal functions of the gravestone.

I have one question. I couldn't quite make out the original thread starter- is this a place for storing gravestones, or is just for decoration?

A request:
Some older, more decrepted looking.
Moss growing on sides.
Faded or cracked marble.
Maybe one slightly opened.

thanks to my now unsupported graphics card, i have had a horrible graphics glitch in that any property with any lower than pavement terrains like graves and basements do weird things in my game

I love u! this gose great with the dead tree post I just read! You rock my sox lol

Did Kurt Cobain kill himself? Well let's see
  • his wife offered someone $50,000 to kill him 3 months before his death
  • he had 3 times the lethal does of heroin; he couldn't have shot himself
Doesn't sound like suicide to me

I'd like to second this request. An older, cracked version would be wonderful too! Maybe even some wilted or black roses in the little urns. :ghost:

Just wondering, since these were cloned from tables, do sims try to set stuff on them?

What is history but a fable agreed upon?

#20 Old 8th Oct 2005 at 9:20 AM
YES! I wanted to make mausoleums, and the urns looked so patethic in them!

Yes they can be used to place the gravestone in in a grave yard and still have the mourn, etc pie menu actions of the gravestone. Or they can be used as just decoration.

DawnKeeper

As these are placed outside the Sims will use the dining tabel nearest to them in the house by default and there would be no seating for them to eat. They may on the odd occasion put a plate on it, but logicaly they would not be near any eating unless you set up a bar'becue in the cemetery. Could be interseting with a dirty plate with green smell smoke and the fly's buzzing round, if it ever happens just move the plate.

Don't forget the cheese.......

Crazyfoxman:
There was a nice article on Yahoo! news about how the above-ground cemeteries made it through Katrina just fine. I want to see them someday too.

I'm having such a great time decorating my graveyards! Thanks, Gromit!
