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.
Hi!
I've managed to put together 10 potted plants I made using bits of various meshes/textures from the game.
These items should work without or with any expansion packs.

UPDATE 07.01.2020 - All plants now have two subsets: the plant and the pot.
Meshes and recolor files have been updated. *note: old recolors will only work for plant subset!*

Empty thumbnails bug: old version of TinyLollipopTree-LightGreen-MESH was corrupted in a weird way and sometimes could cause empty thumbnails for other CC items. If your game has been affected, please replace the mesh with the new one and refresh the thumbnails. Apologies to anyone that experienced this. Big thanks to Krabbysims and Epi7 for finding out.


Bonus pack:
"Square Metal Planter" - Buy Mode/Decorative/Misc/ 50$ - cloned from a planter by Honeywell, has one placement slot. A match for Hosta in a Tall Pot.
"Stone Bowl Planter" - Buy Mode/Surfaces/Misc/ 200$ - has one placement slot that will accept large 1-tile objects like shrubs, trees etc.
"Shabby Coffee Table" - Buy Mode/Surfaces/Coffee Tables/ 60$ - has two placement slots. I used Disappearing Coffee Table to arrange the plants for the screenshots.
"Small Hydrangea" - Build Mode/Garden Center/Shrubs/ 99$ - non-growing flower shrub. Fits the Stone Bowl Planter.

I wish I could download the first file, but my WinRAR is detecting a "virus" so it won't let me download. I could download the second one okay, though.

Is it your WinRAR that's blocking the download, or is it antivirus software? I checked the files again, everything seems to be OK. You may need the latest version of 7Zip to open the file.

Hello! I think these potted plants are super cute and I'd love to have them in my game, but when I try to extract the file it says a structure of the archive is damaged Do you happen to know how I could fix this?

Hi You probably need to update your 7-Zip or WinRAR.
