Ye Olde British Pub Sign

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.
My friend wanted a sign for his pub, but upon looking at the custom signs already available here, as fantastic as they all were, they just weren't long enough to display a full pub sign.
So I decided to have a go at my first ever mesh, and I think it's turned out quite good for a first try.

My sign is cloned and adapted from the Maxis mesh "Super Signguy Retail Sign" and so NEEDS OFB. Like the original object, it's available for both community and residential lots.
You can find it under Decorative -> Miscellaneous.

I have also included six recolours of the sign, using some amusing or interesting pub names. Five out of these are real pub signs that I found using an online image search. One, however, I made for those that like game-style content, it uses the wonderful Simlish font by SIMale, it says "The Royal" in Simlish and has a picture of King Henry VIII.

I have included a package with the mesh and ALL of the recolours, however if you only like certain recolours I have uploaded them all as separate files. You NEED Bluelfears_PubsignMESH_300309.zip, then you can pick and choose which recolours you want! Just see the picture for all the different ones.

I hope you enjoy it

Additional Credits:
I used SimPE, Wings3D and UV Mapper to make the mesh.
A huge thank you to JWoods and mod_bv for their fantastic meshing tutorials that helped me get my head around making my first ever mesh, and thanks to Numenor for his wonderful recolouring tutorial.
