Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.


I like Billyjean's decorative boat from her recent set on BPS a lot, so with her permission and a bit tweaking of the texture and mesh I scaled it up to original size and made it a default for the moving sailboats that you can place in your neighbourhood. Credits and thanks to Billyjean!
I made it normal deco, too, in ten colors. Obviously, for the default you'll have to decide for only one.


yellow, teal, red, mint, mauve


grey, green, brown, blue, black

You'll find them in the rock category.
Custom neighbourhood deco requires one EP, doesn't matter which one. However, the default boats work for basegame only, too.

You might also be interested in my recent mod to remove the water sparkle that usually comes with the boats, linked in "Related Pages".
