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 MTS2 - check the sidebar.
This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.

INTRODUCTION TO THE "GRAND TRIANON" SET
Mirrors have been in use since the middle ages but were made of polished metal. It wasn't until the 13th century that they were truly mirrors as we know them, glass with a metallic background. Mirrors have always been a signature of wealth and prestige since...
The original poster style Bed was introduced in the13th century and has been a symbol of wealth and prestige as well.
When we think of mirrors, our first thought is of the famous "Galerie des Glaces" (the Hall of Mirrors) which is located in the "Versailles Palace”.
The palace is not only the home of the "Grand Trianon" and the Hall of Mirrors but also a home to King Louis XIV and Marie Antoinette. It is here you can find one of the most exquisite "Poster Style" beds in the world.
With such inspiration, the “Dream Team” has created for you to enjoy, the "The Grand Trianon Collection" for the Sim's 2 game.
