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.
These are some frames with passepartout that are made to fit the small / large / medium sim-painted paintings, plus a landscape one that fits most of the Maxis landscape-sized paintings (and any custom ones that use one of those meshes) so you can change their frame colour too.

An additional small landscape-sized frame is also available in this post.

One package attached that contains all four of these:
  • Small frame: 25§
  • Medium frame: 35§
  • Landscape frame: 40§
  • Large frame: 45§

They are in Paintings and have eighteen colour options each, most of which are referenced from the Maxis “Roman Temple”, “Treebra” and Moochi-Somethingorother paintings (but with a custom specular to remove the glossiness from the paper part), two are custom. The swatches are sorted so that the Treebra/Moochi/custom ones (double frame with plain passepartout) come first, the Roman Temple (plain with double passepartout) frames last.

They can be moved over paintings without bb.moveobjects, and don’t block the paintings from being interacted with. They can also be used with some other Maxis stuff, like when you want to frame a poster for your discerning sim kids. Note that some Maxis paintings will appear to clip through the passepartout while you are holding them (or the frame), but once you let go it’s all fine.

The small frame also fits around medium sim paintings (of course only the middle part will be visible then. But hey, variety!).

See the “colours” screenshots for the colour options; they are the same for all sizes.

Polygon Counts:

All frames: 100V/72F
All sun shadows: 8V/12F

I LOVE these frames. I was wondering if you were going to do some for the photo sizes as well. They deserve some love too haha!

Hey there, I know Im so late. But if you're still around, can you fix this mod pls? It has a shadowy thingy on the small and large frames and I can't figure out why it happened, and it bugs me so much lol. The normal size frame works perfectly though. I'm hoping to hear from you soon. Thanks!
