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.
After a bit of fussing and grumbling, I present to you all, the Trumpeter Swan!
This is my first mesh, so I would really like your feedback on this one. My old hands are kinda shaky, so my textures may be a bit off. I tried to make the swan look as close to the real thing as I could. I cloned the new mesh using the umbrella lily pad, there is no shadow for the object, but I tried it out in the game and it looks fine. I may update this one at a later time if I feel inclined to add the shadow .
The swan can be found under build in the landscape/flowers section. I did this so that you can find it easily as decorative is pretty full already.
I really hope you enjoy your swans!
