Here is my humble contribution to the Medieval/Renaissance Challenge: These are two kind of objects indispensable in this period of austerity and almost absence of decoration: big tapestries to cover those freezer walls and a chest to keep the household stuff.

This time I wanted to offer an object not only for medieval sims, but also for their sim heirs My objects are turning older "as time goes by". Yes you can, not recolor them, but "decolor" them overlaying with a pattern channel, changing the material and the color itself in a subtle way...

There are three new meshes but four objects in total, 1 of a big tapestry in two different packages, depending on the possibility of recoloring textures, 1 of a medium sized tapestry with decoloration possibilities inside and the final 1 of a carved chest, also "decolorable".

Set description:

The Tapestries: There are two meshes carriying a LOT of high resolution textures. Warning, these are big sized packages. The Nanitapizmedio (1600 simoleons) is the smaller with 4 non recolorables original textures and the same 4 with a channel to... decolorate. Yes, you can overlay it with a pattern getting an effect of aged, distressed, rusty or what you want to do with your legacy object. For the other mesh, the bigger, I prefered to make two separate packages, the Nanitapizgrande (1650 simoleons) with the original non recolorable colors, and the Nanitapizviejo (1650 simoleons) with the same textures to distress by yourself. Choose one or another, of both, they are different objects in game. Located in Buy Mode, Decoration, Paintings.

The chests: Oh, What to do in the Middle Age and in the Renaissance without them? These are my favourite objects and I enjoyed a lot meshing, moulding and carving them. Nanimedievalchest (245 simoleons) is a simple low poly mesh, decolorable in one channel in the same way than the tapestries, the just for aging purposes. Located in Buy Mode, Coffee tables.

Polygon Counts:

Nanitapizmedio: 290 vertex/448 faces
Nanitapizgrande: 290 vertex/448 faces
Nanitapizviejo: 290 vertex/448 faces
Nanimedievalchest: 100 vertex/84 faces

My gratitude to ModTheSims for this challenge, it is a pleasure to see so many people interested in historical themes and so many creators spreading out their medieval talents!

My gratitude and my duty to my friends Luna and Demonic encouraging me and helping me to make and improve such things.

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.
