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.
They've been a long time coming and they're finally here! All your kids' pals from 123 Sesame Street are here for your simmies to play with. Yes the are playable and found in the toys category. There are nine friends: Big Bird, Elmo, Telly Monster, Grover, Cookie Monster, Burt, Ernie, Oscar the Grouch, and Count von Count. These are the same price as the teddy bears ($50). Please, no comments on why Oscar isn't in the trash can. It just didn't work out. Remember to adherer to my policy and have fun!

Grover - 1 channel - Red/fur
Cookie Monster - 1 channel - Red/fur

Oscar - 2 channels - Red/fur, Green/brow
Count - 3 channels - Red/outer cape, Green/inner cape, Blue/skin

Polygon count! I mostly used TRS Workshop to make these and upon importing the meshes, the poly counts were much lower than the ones given by S3PE, from the same meshes. But looking at the poly count in MS, the numbers pointed towards the ones from Workshop, but I listed the numbers from both programs here.

Polygon Counts:
Workshop Polycounts (vertices/faces)
Big Bird - 679/840
Elmo - 776/948
Telly Monster - 880/1070
Grover - 799/962
Cookie Monster - 816/954
Burt - 962/1092
Ernie - 1008/1070
Oscar the Grouch - 698/854
Count von Count - 877/1048 S3PE polygon counts (vertices/faces)
Big Bird - 910/856
Elmo - 1245/948
Telly Monster - 1390/1070
Grover - 1311/1022
Cookie Monster - 1385/1014
Burt - 1261/1092
Ernie - 1403/1126
Oscar the Grouch - 1136/854
Count von Count - 1189/1048

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.
