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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I always thought the execuputter had potential to use for a mini putt place, but using the same thing over and over, not fun. So I spiced it up abit, 5 times over!

This set contains 5 new meshes which were created with SimPe, CEP, Wings3d and TheGimp.

Most of the textures were used from other maxis game textures/ect. and changed to my liking, others were drawn myself.

All cloned from the execuputter, buyable in catalogue under miscellaneous-all. Community sort - Outdoor-miscellaneous.
$500 each.

Sims still gain charisma and have the options for lessons. Sims will also putt autonomonously. Requires NL and OFB.

I also added a screenshot of my community mini putt lot, to give you an example of what you can create with these.


Mini Golf Green 01 - castle
1992 faces, 11024 vertices

Mini Golf Green 02 - windmill
1102 faces, 573 vertices

Mini Golf Green 03 - clown
1402 faces, 717 vertices

Mini Golf Green 04 - obstacle
1224 faces, 638 vertices

Mini Golf Green 05 - waterfall (with animated texture)
938 faces, 483 vertices

You can recolor these, post them on MTS2 and other free sites but the meshes must stay here and linked to. You can use them in uploaded
lots too. Thanks!
Please comments and criticism much appreciated! I can't become any better of a creator if no one tells me whats wrong!

This is awesome! I might be able to use for the mini-mall I'm building if there's enough room. :D

Thankyou for the wonerful comments everyone. I am suprised to have found this featured.

Someone asked why this needs OFB...well the objdatas say 0x8c - which mean ep required, and since I have NL and OFB, I really can't be sure which it is, maybe both, maybe not. Better safe then sorry, right? If you only have NL please let me know if this object works for you. Also, if anyone can give me adefinate to this, please don't hesistate!

Alot of requests for the community lot! lol Well, I'm a horrible lot builder. That lot doesn't even have a bathroom! lol So i won't be uploading that.
But If I planned a new one, that can keep sims needs fulfilled somewhat atleast, would you like to have that one instead?
Or better idea, if one of you talented lot builders comes across this thread, stop me now and build one please! lol

This lot is very pretty. I sure would love to be able to download your lot. I can add the amenities. Your lot is very scenic. Please consider uploading it. I made one, but it's not as nice. I hope you will consider this. It is the look of the lot that is so impelling. If not, thank you anyway for the mini golf greens.

Default Excellent idea!
These mini-golf sets are great! Can't wait to build a little mini-golf park for my SIMS!

I've had a problem with downloading though... I was able to download 01, 04 and 05 okay, but when I tried to download 02 and 03 I got a "file is corrupted" message. I tried each one several times and it was the same each time, so could you check on those 2 files and see if they've broken up or something?

Thanks for the great sets!

I've just downloaded them and unzipped them without problem. They look fine in SimPE too. Perhaps it has something to do with your download being interrupted or something because of MTS2 timing out all the time like it is?
Has anyone else experienced this problem?
