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.
Are your sims having a wedding? Paying final respects at a funeral? With my accessory flowers, your story-telling stages will be just that more awesome! For example, your Hollywood starlet can now accept her award in style!

This was originally requested by traelia for some project she's working on. I thought I could take the bouquet that came from Generations and simply convert it to an accessory. I simply thought wrong!

*hums Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen*

The flowers and leaves of the bouquet use an alpha mesh, and none of the base game EA accessories were alpha editable. So, I searched and searched for a solution until I found a thread that said there was one WA accessory that uses alpha meshes. Since the bouquet is cloned from this accessory, you will need World Adventures to use it. Sorry =/

Some of you are probably wondering what's the big deal about alpha meshes, anyways? Well, they allow for a low poly mesh to have intricate shapes and details. So, in short, the bouquet won't add extra strain on your game.

The flowers have four recolorable channels: flowers, wrapper, ribbon and stem/leaves. It's attached to the sim's right hand, so it works perfectly with poses.

The flowers are available for males and females, teen through up. And are found in everyday, formal, swimwear, athletic and sleepwear. They are NOT set for random. It is categorized a ring, because that's - personally - my least used category.

**If you wish to change the categorization, you will have to import the package into TSRW and do it from there. Opening/saving the bouquet in CTU will break it because CTU doesn't support mesh transparency.

In theory, the accessories have a CAS thumbnail, but I cannot get it to show up. However, these are easily identifiable because it'll have the little WA logo on the thumbnail as well as the CC icon.

Polygon Counts:
547 Polys

Feel free to clone to make your own accessories.

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.
