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?

a stylish must-have for your witches and wizards
my thanks to besen, for another great translation
and to gromit, for helping me 'ground' the bloody thing

The info:
Poly's: 1024
Price: 500, Room rating: 7
Find in Decorative/Other
It is recolorable
Comes with catalogue entries for Dutch, German and French, everyone else gets English
Made with Blender and SimPE 0.40
Should work in both versions of the game

The cauldron has some basic animation. I'm sure someone with actual talent at recoloring can make the goo inside bubble more convincingly
Until then, I have two versions for you:
- black with poisonous green goo (default)
- silver with grisly red goo

The legals:
Feel free to recolour, hack, fiddle with this object and post your work. Just give a link to the original mesh in this thread and tell me all about it.
Please ask me before posting the actual mesh anywhere.
Please do not put this object in a downloadable lot, we don't want to scare unsuspecting players.

Known issues:
None.... yet :Slap:

Here's a pic of the recolour

See that weird thought bubble? That's what the cauldron looks like in the catalogue. And brown means black... Yes, I know

Allrighty, enjoy and feel free to comment or criticize.
