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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Update march 23, 2008: The Alchemist's Spyglass is updated for Free Time. Please download and let it overwrite the old one. Find it in post 11

Welcome traveller,

so you're looking for something new? Or something very old?
These pages will take you straight to the darker ages. You'll find echoing halls and medieval towns full of shadowy corners that could just house a monster. On the town square you'll find the paupers, scrounging to get their next meal and wearing rags to cover themselves. Looking down on them are the cold hearted nobles, the gypsies and the bandits, all making their way in life despite everyone else. In dank basements alchemists and wizard pore over tomes written on black paper, and try to make lead into gold.

We will also take you to victorian times, to a world that is certainly more elegant, but not less dangerous. In the backrooms of abandoned mansions, men who think they are gods tinker with howling contraptions and flying machines.

Table of contents

This project is very wide-ranging, including objects, lots, hair and rooms filled to bursting with clothes. Please don't stray from the path, traveller.

ZOMG this is absolutely incredible! I've always wanted to have a world like this in the sims, and now you talented people have that dream a reality. My downloads folder will probably shake its fist at you in spite, but it'll be well worth it.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Everything looks so wonderfully imagined and fantastically detailed.

This is amazing I've always wanted a medieval hood but there was never quite enough of the right stuff to make one until now! and you included new meshes for my favourite warlokk bodyshape. I love you guys :D

From the first set Build mode. I cannot download the awnings, Waterwheel recolours, Vordach, DongleArch or gate garage files. I have managed to download everything else fine, I don't use Q Express.

Will let you know if I have any other problems with other downloads.

This is an amazing series, just what I need for my medieval 'hood. Pity I can't use any of the lots though as I don't have Seasons. Any chance of some non-Seasons lots? If they won't crash the game I'm more than happy with the ones posted so far as they're gorgeous. Can you put a Seasons lot in a non-Seasons game as I've never tried through fear of completely wrecking my game.

I also can't download much of the content from the first post - I get 'not found' messages for some of it except the 1st file and the last 4 files.

Amazing! I tried to download everything, but many of the links were not working. I did DL everything I could though, and can't wait to try them out in my medieval neighborhood.

Tried again today, and DLs worked fantastic! Thanks again.

This is fantastic! I absolutely love the entire set! And the Ren Gal and Bodybuilder sizes too! My download folder is groaning. I am so delighted with this set.

The only trouble downloading I had was with the meshkiste site.

purpledaddy, the group worked on the project for months, and 2 of us worked on the thread for days before it was ready to be posted :D

Also you need to check links to steampunker and tent bed, I can't download these either. It says the link is missing or something like that.

Incredible, incredible. I was waiting for a set like this for a story I'll be writing, and here it is. I love you guys. :D

Keep up the good work, because you've really outdone yourselves here.
