Information (Click for more details):
This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
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 MTS2 - check the sidebar.
This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
As promised, I upload my columns and arches I use to make ancient japanese houses. There are four items, two columns and two arches.
This column is not so straight because it have 4 tile. The idea is you can place it on walls and as edges to the arches... You don't have to turn the cheat "moveobject" on : object intersection is allowed. You will understand with the screenshots.
Column for deck
This one is very special : this column can go through the floors under it, like deck's pillar. It have a height of 4 floors, 1 over, 3 under.
This two columns require Open for Business (cloned from the "Simply Round Column by Right Angle Industries"). Let's see this pictures ^^.
Like I said, the column goes through the deck under it and it looks like deck's pillar. As you can see, the water is not a problem... mountain either ^^.
This two arches were made to use with the columns. And with the wallpaper I use, this is nice :
With the column, the arch looks like a simple beam, the same of the wallapaper. So, the illusion is perfect .
The two arches does not require any EP (cloned from the french arch).
The result is nice, aren't it ?
P.S. : I guess you are wondering why my deck does not have pillars. Well, I made new one. It's easy, you have just to edit the 'deckfoundations' script. I attached it, you have to put it in "C:\Program Files\EA Games\The Sims 2\TS Data\Res\Catalog\Scripts". But please, make a save of your 'deckfoundations' script. I don't want to crash your game ^^'.
In the game, you will see two new icons in the deck and foundation section (straight and diagonal). I don't know why but the icons are ones of the pool but the tool works perfectly (well in my game, if not in yours, delete my deckfoundations.txt and replace yours).
Arches : Faces=72 ; Vertices=144
Straight Column : Faces=238 ; Vertices=181
Column for deck : Faces=952 ; Vertices=724
