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.
Lo these many days I have toiled in SimPE, mining the depths of Sims2 packages. My labors having been rewarded rather handsomely, I give you my first batch of extracted Sims2 objects converted for Sims3.

As far as I know, none of these objects were buyable in Sims2, so that makes them extra-fabulous, right? On the other hand, none of them are good for anything except looking pretty. Or looking useful. Or something.

Meshes and textures are by EA/Maxis, obviously. I did add shadows because I am like that. However, they may still have imperfections. That possibility disturbs me, but since I have to live with it, so you do you. But only if you download them.

If you do, you will get some candy-- as a bonus, I have also included a lollypop extracted from Sims3. Yum. (Not edible, though-- see "not good for anything", above.)

All items are found in Decorative --> Miscellaneous, and are not recolorable.

Enjoy, and let me know about any problems, because I hate problems and will fix them if possible.

EDIT: some people were having trouble with the .rar file so I replaced it with a zip Polygon Counts:
Babayaga_Sims2Deco_Flashlight: 158 polys
babayaga_Sims2Deco_Binoculars: 874 polys
Babayaga_Sims2Deco_Headphones: 816 polys
Babayaga_Sims2Deco_Hairdryer: 796 polys
Babayaga_Sims2Deco_Potholder: 126 polys
Babayaga_Sims2Deco_PlasticCup 288 polys
Babayaga_SculptureExtracted_Lollipop: 59 polys

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
