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.

Hi. So, what you see here is actually a well stocked grocery store. Now, when your simmies want to go shopping for groceries, they can choose between Maxis's quite blurry grocery counters that are never empty (wonder why :D) and this grocery store! You can find here fresh and very yummy fruits like oranges, apples, bananas, grapes, pears and, of course, the season's choice for most: watermelons! They are sooooo yummy that you can actually see them vanishing off the counters in no time at all! So better keep good business relationships with those suppliers of yours! Business lasts while stocks last! Well, enjoy! I had fun making them, the orange is actually my first ever object and I think it came out best. Comments
are most welcome!

They are all cloned from the big bonsai in original game and appear under decorations/plants. I have OFB and FF, but because they were cloned from the bonsai I think they should work also for those that do not have these expansion packs.

Polys and vertices:

Apples: 629 vertices / 870 faces
Bananas: 532 vertices / 1024 faces
Grapes: 1420 vertices / 1772 faces
Pears: 759 vertices / 1138 faces
Melons: 130 vertices / 256 faces
Oranges: 672 vertices / 1332 faces
Wooden crate: 189 vertices / 342 faces


Wings3D - for meshes
UV Mapper Classic - for texturing
UV Mapper Professional Demo - for checking how textures look on the mesh and counting faces :D
Paint Shop Pro - for colouring textures SimPE - for putting everything togheter

A big thank you goes to creators of the software and all tutorial writers. I couldn't have done it without them. :P

Awesome work! I love these, its always nice to have more choices than what maxis gave. That way your stores can look different. Thanks for sharing.

* If you download my sets please note that I usually include a collection file. Please do not pm me that you can not find something from my sets if you have not yet installed the collection file. I do it for a reason. Thanks!

Hi. I made them bigger than the right size on puropose becaue I didn't like making things that I cannot see. And not because my eyesight is poor. Since I started playing sims i found myself on a number of occassions trying to zoom in on word documents and excel spreadsheets and from my point of vue this is the right size, especially since they are still decoration stuff even though you can find them under plants and my sims and your sims are never gonna eat them. You can always make them smaller if you want to use them in food animations and stuff like that.

Yay! These are great. And I like the large size, too because it makes the shelves look fully stocked. I hate those little items that look all lonely sitting all by themselves on that big shelf!

Thanks these are just fantastic!! I also love the size of them. I so hate small things on shelves that you cant see what they are let alone find them in our games.
