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.
Hi Guys,

Would you test this for me please?
Made with SimPE v0.34/35, unique GUID, colour enabled, EP ready(not required), using Milkshape and Mesh Tool.

Polygon Count:774 (mostly the bowl! ... the plant is about 200 ish)... so it is within Maxis' guidelines.

This is an (artificial) Swiss Cheese Plant (silk)- in a ceramic bowl.
The plant comes in two varieties...plain green and variegated green'white.

The bowl is in 6 patterns... :confused: (not my strong point, I know...)

You Sims can 'view it' (and you get room points because it's actually cloned from a sculpture). It is NOT a plant...which is why I'm posting here.

I have just realised that none of the indoor plants need watering in TS2...I was confused (no surprise there then) with TS1 about the watering. Anyway...it's better than a plant because they at lease recognise it...and either love it or hate it. (mine hates it ... )

It can be found in Miscellaneaous (the three balls)..then ALL
(it is not in the Plant catalogue)

Again, nothing complicated, but I needed to explore the alpha channel stuff more (and a s a result fixed the bamboo leaves!)... but I do like this plant (and have one in my sitting room).

I have posted the first picture to show you the comparative size next to other plants. Please don't ask me to make it bigger....already tried it...and I don't know how to change the 'footprint' so the Sims keep walking though it. At this size, it seems to function better.

Please repost any issues, and thanks for testing...


Recolours: Please do not post files containing the original mesh. Recolours are fine to post (preferable here in the recolours section). Please pm me before posting recolours- I always reply. Please do not include this (or any of my other items) in uploaded LOTS. These are BETA objects for you to test...not something to 'inflict' on an unsuspecting LOT downloader. Thanks.
