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.
Grave - Find in Decorative/All or Miscellaneous/All. Purely decorative object - no special functions. Positive room value. Can be used indoors as well as outdoors. Looks especially good with a little dirt colored terrain around it.

Dead Nanny - Optional separate object to be used with the grave. Find in Decorative/All or Miscellaneous/All. Positive room value. From original Maxis Nanny mesh. Since the Dead Nanny is beneath ground/floor level and could potentially be misplaced, I included an empty beer can with this object that lays on the floor or ground, so you can retrieve/move/rotate the nanny by grabbing the beer can. Just place the beer can by the corner of the grave nearest the shovel and the dead nanny will appear in the grave. You may have to rotate the beer can once or twice.

Update 3/29/05: Fixed integrity, made sure EP compatible, and a few minor changes for this and all my other posted objects.

having the same issue. the weird thing is, it used to work before. with the game fresh on my new comp, the nanny shows as a can to me too. i know the can represents where the body lies in the ground, but no matter what i do, the nanny doesn't show below ground. i'm surprised it was actually working few years back and now it doesn't. suggestions would be nice. it's just not the same without a dead body in the grave lol

This is amazing... I discovered a tiny new feature too. I figure you cloned this from a hot tub eh? Well with this casual romance hack that I just recently got, your grave just turned into a working hot tub and a couple of sims just had their first time in an open grave. Unbelievably awesome. I can't believe that just happened.
