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.
Updated, fixed, and tested for compatibility with the new "Pets" 1.26.89 patch

Edit: Added Simlish versions of "help" rug

Want to see your Sim stuck on a deserted island somewhere? Here is a set of 12 items to create the perfect island getaway. Included in this set is:

1) Dead Fish decor
2) Leanto Shelter decor
3) "Wilson" volleyball ala "Tom Hanks in Castaway" decor
4) Help (in English), SOS (in Simlish), and Help (in Simlish) "rug" decor
5) Palm Trees w/ coconuts decor
6) Pig roast decor
7) Pig roast with fire pit
8) Raft decor
9) Spear decor
10) Hammock "couch"

Everything is recolorable except the raft and palm tree - (see UV map pictures below)

How do you download them?
I put them all in one file. You can unzip all 10 items directly to your mods folder OR you can unzip it to your desktop (or wherever) and just drag the ones you want into your mods folder and delete what you don't want. The filenames are pretty descriptive.

Where are they?
All items are found in miscellaneous and cost 5 Simoleons.

Will they work for your setup?
These SHOULD be base game compatible, and I have all current patches applied to my game so I don’t know if they are needed but it’s possible. Please let me know if it doesn't work for anyone and I will update it right away.

I can't really find anything except you don't want to put your sleeping bag too far under the leanto shelter if you have moveobjects on or your Sim's head will go through it when he or she stands back up. Otherwise it will fit under there properly with the default setting on. If you find any issues, let me know.

What can you do with it?
Feel free to recolor it, retexture it, or anything you like. Just please credit me for the mesh.

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.
