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.
I Have Used that Sunflower Painting about 200 Times Too Many.

I bet you have, too. Why? Because there are only two paintings in the entire game that count as "neutral" - the sunflowers, and the four tiny ones (and I bet you spam the crap out of that one, too.) So, today, I give you a solution. Two paintings with sixteen painting variations. This means a whopping thirty two new paintings for you to prettify your house with! On top of that, you won't have to repeat your pictures at all! If you do, your house is just too big.



The painting options span far across the sims world. Two pictures from every single official world (including Riverview and Barnacle bay!) are sure to keep your sims' homes fresh with inspiration from far away lands! Or, you know...just make them look pretty cool.

Info:
Location: Wall Hangings
Price: $200
Channels: 2
Requires: Base game

Changing the Picture
If any of you are wondering how to change the picture that is inside of the frame, it is extremely simple. All you need to do is click on the redesign tool, navigate up the the top left corner, and pick a new default option! Make sure you CASt after this, though, or else you will lose all of your pretty designs. See the pictures for some examples and ideas!



The Struggle and a Half that Was This Project

Once upon a time...Qbuilderz thought that he could handle a rectangle mesh (since everything else is so hard for him to take on.) Unfortunately for him, it turns out he couldn't. In his time of dire need, he called upon his dear friend Armiel, the Finn, to help him. As his world began to fall to pieces, after learning even a box could outwit him, The Finn picked him back up and brushed him off. Unfortunately, this was the beginning of a long and drawn out bitch fest of an ordeal. The next issue arose when the game stoped updating the mesh...completely. Enter the heroic; Morphead, the Supreme Usurper of TSS; Her Royal Foxiness, Daluved1; and Wa-llie the Gouldigger (Dutch) to save the day!
The day was not saved.
Tears, blood, 32 redone pictures, a specular, remap, 32 more pictures, and a complete reinstall later, the meshes were finally showing in Q's game! Glory! It was time to upload! 37 pictures and an animation later, terror struck. There were no shadows on the mesh. From this point in the story, the peanut gallery had gathered - watching from a safe distance to avoid any Q-rage that may unfurl. Arisuka (The OTHER Finn,) Ben (The Northerner with a Southern Accent,) LadyAwesome (The Most Undoubtedly Awesome in the Land,) Twi (-rannisaurus Rex,) and TVRdesgins (Just Tom.) watched from the distance with worried looks and derisive judgement. Yet another remap and texture fix later, the paintings were done! The kingdom was finally at peace!
Now...enjoy my paintings. Four days is way too freaking long for a rectangle and a couple overlays.

There is your story you demanding group of (incredibly helpful and wonderful) people Happy simming!

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.
