This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.

Hey simmers,
This is my first upload to MTS and I thought what better than some recolors of Dragon Slave's awesome basic horse mesh (it really is lovely, isn't it?). I have recolored it before and I have found it's a really rewarding practice. I'm very happy to share these two appaloosas with you; I think they turned out quite nicely!

-Blood Bay Appaloosa-

The base for this coat recolor was made by DS (the blood bay color). I searched for appaloosa recolors via google and found a horse that looked something sort of like this:

So I drew on the white portions with the spots to try and recreate him.

-Dalmation Appaloosa-

Funny title, but they really do resemble Dalmatians. I thought maybe the mane should be black, but after finding images of horses like this one, 90% of them had solid white manes:

-Both recolors shown together-

-Reqs & Whatnot-

(a) I have all Expansion Packs; However, Dragon Slave's mesh is base game compatible, so I don't see why recolors wouldn't be also.

(b) You will need to grab Dragon Slave's basic horse mesh if you don't already have it. There should be a link attached to this post.

(c) I have included a link attached to this post for my "Paint" recolors of this same mesh. Check it out if you're interested


I'm happy to share these with you! I hope you find a good use for them
