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 all!

Here's a new functional object for our poor neglected toddlers: A pile of sand! Excellent for the construction of sandpits (use a sandy ground colour and a low fence) or beach fronts (sandy ground colour and water), these sandpits come with a "play" option for toddlers only.The sandpile raises fun and decreases hygene in our not-quite-littlest sims.

The object has modified behaviours, it is not just a remesh. The animations should be reasonably convincing, but we're still having to reuse existing animations in new ways; there are no new animations in this object.

It is recolourable, and comes with an additional recolour so your sandpits don't end up looking very repetitive. For all you recolourers, different sand patterns can be made using transparent textures.

The sand pile can be found under General > Kids.

I have tested in the EP and it works fine. I haven't tested in the original game, but it should be fine there as it doesn't use anything new.

Enjoy!
