Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
NEW Neighborhood Object: ANCIENT DOLMENS

As per request, here are the Dolmens, in perfect "Stonehenge ruined style"

The Dolmens are provided in two sizes: large and small (you can see both in the screenshots).

You can find both versions in the Neighborhood catalog, "Landmark" section.
Remeber: don't look for them in the lot Buy Mode catalog: they are NH objects...

Unlike many other NH object, Stonehenge can be placed anywhere in the neighborhood, even on roads and lots (as you know, the NH objects are visible in lot view, for Nightlife users).

IMPORTANT: Base-game (no-EP) players please read.
As described by Quaxi in this post, the support for the custom fences, walls, roofs and NH objects is available only with an EP installed. Quaxi describes a workaround, that I've applied to the Dolmens, so that no-EP players can enjoy it, too. But be warned: though my objects have a unique GUID, it might create conflicts with future expansions or custom object. Currently, no existing objects conflict with the Dolmens, but I have to warn you anyway

Therefore, no-EP users should download the "Dolmens_No-EP.rar" attachment, while EP users (UNI or NL or both) should download the "Dolmens_UNI-NL.rar" one.
Both rar archives contain both the "Large" and the "Small" versions.

Poly Count: Large = 156 facets; Small = 150 facets (if you are wondering "So few polys?", than remember that this is the correct size for a small neighborhood object like this )

Please report any issues and glitches that you might find.

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

I am so loving this. Might we maybe see some LotR style towers or greco-roman/byzantine neighborhood items in the future?

D@k - I simply can't take requests, because I actually can't create a new mesh: when I find a good mesh, I can edit it to be suitable for my needs, but nothing more.
If you ever find a good mesh for a LOTR tower, I'll be glad to convert it to a NH object.

GunMod - I see from your public profile that you joined MTS2 in august; I can guess that you weren't here on MTS2 when Pinhead posted his very first tutorial about creating a recolour package (not a full object) with the "manual method" (SimPE didn't extract the needed files, back then).
Extracting manually the files from the game files isn't difficult, but it a long process. Ant it's even longer to explain in words what to do. I don't want to "keep secret" these information, but the effort would be worthless, since SimPE will be updated at the end of the week...

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

I *DON'T* accept requests, sorry.
