This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Happy Spooky Day to you all! Or, you know, Happy Halloween. Whatever floats your boat! :-D

I had intended to take part in Simblreen this year over on Tumblr, but sadly I didn't have time to make enough gifts, so here is the one that I did manage to finish, just in time for (the latter part of) Halloween! :-) It fits into the current tri-monthly theme, Seasons & Celebrations, so I have tagged it accordingly.

So, anyway, here are five greetings cards for use with MogHughson's Postal System. If you download these cards along with MogHughson's Postal System, then your sims will be able to send these cards to their friends, relatives and acquaintances in the neighbourhood. Sims who receive these cards will receive a small positive boost to their friendship level with the sender.



(Custom content in the picture includes Honeywell's Kitchen Shelves, Biffy Sims' Halloween Bunting and Pocci's Autumn Dining small candle.)

There are two sets of cards, one of which is for Halloween and the other of which is for Spooky Day (which is featured on Phaenoh's calendars, like this one). The two sets share the same GUID's, so you can only have one set in your game! The pictures on the cards are identical, but the greetings message that pops up when your sim reads the card is different depending on the set: in the Halloween set it reads "Happy Halloween! Wishing You All The Best On Halloween!" and in the Spooky Day set it reads "Happy Spooky Day! Wishing You All The Best On Spooky Day!". All of the package files are numbered/named according to the above picture, so you can delete any of the cards that you don't want in your game.

I also need to mention that I no longer have any registered GUID's, so these are made with randomly generated GUID's and may unintentionally replace something in your game! The likelihood of that being the case is very very small, as I understand it, but please let me know if you think that you've found that one of the cards may be replacing something (be it EAxis or custom content) and I will check it out and change the GUID('s) if neccesary.

Without MogHughson's Postal System these greetings cards are useless! Make sure you head over to her thread and check it out. It includes information on how the postal system works, as well as instructions on how to make your own cards, if you fancy giving that a go! :-)

If you have any comments, suggestions and so on or encounter any problems, please leave a comment. I hope that you all enjoy using these greetings cards in your games! :-)

Additional Credits:
Many many thanks, as always, to MogHughson, for not just creating and sharing her Postal System but for providing templates and detailed instructions to allow people to create their own greetings cards! :-) I do love making them!

Thank you to Honeywell, Biffy Sims & Pocci for the shelves and Halloween decorations shown in the main picture, and to Ekrubynaffit for reuploading Pocci's Autumn Dining Set now that BPS has closed.

Thanks (as always) to the makers of SimPE.

And thank you to the Mod The Sims owners, admins, mods, creators and all members for making this such a great place to share custom content!
