Untamed Seas: Backdrops and Panels

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.

For a while now, I've been looking for a way to add "troubled waters" to the game.
As much as I love the serene water of pools and the calming tides of Sim seas, I longed for turbulence.
The kind of stormy waters where mythical pirate ships roam. Dangerous waters, places where shipwrecks are aplenty. Powerful seas where professional surfers can test their mettle to the core.
Untamed Seas is a set of four hand painted panels that bring the fierce rush of the sea, the power of the waves into your Sim game.
They can be used separately or together, as decorative panels to display in your home or art museum, or enlarged to the max, to become the backdrop of your Sims' most dangerous and exciting adventures.


Untamed Seas panels are completely transparent when seen from behind, so, while they can create a unique environment on one lot, they will not obstruct your view from neighboring lots.
The panels can be placed directly over water and do not require any cheats to place. (note: When placing over water, always place the water first and the panels afterwards.) Sims can walk through Untamed Sea panels.
To prevent them from walking through the back of the panel and disrupting the illusion, place fence directly behind the panel.

Please note: Unlike wallpaper these panels can be enlarged beyond the height of even the tallest wall. Fine seams between connected panels can become more evident when the panels are made very large.(See the images above for an example.)


Untamed Seas is found in Decorative under Sculptures.
The price is: 200 Simoleons
