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 picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
The motor will be found in your catalog in the Hobbies/Knowledge section.
Your Sims can gain mechanical skill points by working on this car engine.
This isn't a "cheat" object, skill will be gained in the usual way.
Polys = 2480 (620 polys per tile)
The engine requires a flat 4 tile area for placement.
Included in the download is the Mesh plus the color options.
This object may be recolored, and may be included in lot uploads

The mesh file is NOT to be altered or used as a base for other meshes!
The mesh for the motor was based on a mesh from DMI
However, the original motor mesh was over 20,000 polys, so I re-made it from scratch using the original mesh as a reference.
All mesh editing and uv_mapping was done in MilkShape. Texture images were hand drawn in PSP
The second color option was enabled by Numenor's CEP
The interactions were made possible by Echo's tutorials
