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.
In my latest home, which will be available on MTS too, I use hazuitokage's full-height glass windows. However these do not have a window frame, and thus a gap appears in the wall. I therefore created this simple column; to hide this gap.

Important to note is that these columns are the same height as a wall, including a possible ceiling (all EA columns are slightly shorter than a wall, expecting a ceiling to fill up the rest of the space).

They are also great on their own, especially in modern architecture. I myself like to use the shiny metal texture on it, but as you can use any you like, it can be used in any project.

I hope you like it. It is the first time I have created a custom object and because of that it might not be perfect, but it works and looks great for/to me.

General info
- Name: Simple Column
- Location: Build Mode -> Columns
- Price: 50
- 1 Recolourable channel (all sides of the column)

Polygon Counts:
40 vertices, 30 faces
Tags: #column, #simple, #modern

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.
