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.
These are conversions of framed "Travel" posters from The Sims 2 Bon Voyage Expansion Pack.
This "Travel" poster is one of my and maybe everyone's favorite wall decoration in TS2.
Good Sim-lish graphic arts, realistic simple and modern shape, but not too much modern.

I made three meshes.
Original size, and smaller half and quarter size like karaskaras' work for TS2.
And these have two CAST-able parts (frame and mat), and contains 11 posters from TS2.


These half and quarter sized frames are SLAVEs (= texture referencing files) .
They always require original size file as their MASTER.
Because these SLAVE files not contain any textures, for economical purpose.
They reference the MASTER file and share the textures.

11 posters from TS2

First three arts are from original "travel posters".
Next five are from "Large Metro Poster", next next three are from "Movie Poster", both came with Free Time EP.

- found in "decorative" > "Paintings".
- Catalog name : Collectible Poster by TravelKeeper (same as TS2)
- Price : 149 (the same as TS2) / Half size 148 / Quarter size 147

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
