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.
could you help me test this?
I've made some props for my Paranormal sim, and I figured some of you might have some use for these too. So here they are
One crystal ball and a set of tarot cards.

The info:

The tarot cards:
Price: 20, Room score: 2, Poly count: 182
The default is the Rieder tarot one, there's one recolor with the Fey tarot (which is beautiful, btw, I want that deck )

The crystal ball:
Price: 200, Room score: 2, Poly count: 482
The base and the ball can be recolored separately.
Default is smudgy white ball with a black base.
Recolours for the base: dark wood, pink swirly and sky blue.
Recolours for the ball: Cloudy grey, Night sky and Clear Crystal (transparent)

Both can be found in Decorative/Sculptures
Both are recolorable
Comes with catalog entries in Dutch, French and German. Everyone else gets English.

*update*: Since several people had problems with the shadows, and because it's such a flat object anyway, I added a version without any shadow. It overwrites the old files. Please tell me if that did the trick!

The legals

You are free to recolour, hack, fiddle with these objects and post your work, provided you give a link to the original mesh in this thread, and tell me all about it.
If, for some reason, you want to post the mesh, ask me!
Please do not put this object in a downloadable lot.
Please remember that this is a beta, download at your own risk.
I do not want to be held responsible for any meanings your sims might read in this . The tarot spread is purely arbitrary, and as far as I know non-existent. At best, it's a mirrored sun-cross. So don't go blaming me for any cursed sims or anything.

Some recolours for the crystal ball

and for the tarot deck

enjoy! All comments, criticism and advice are appreciated.
