Bioshock Infinite Rose Bushes-Seasons Compatible

Original Bioshock Infinite meshes converted to Sims 3 by Veritas, converted to Sims 2 by SamantaBlack.
Additional seasonal meshes and textures by Raynuss. Made Seasons Compatible by Raynuss.
Rose Hedge mesh by Raynuss created to match the Rose Bushes.






The Large Rose and Rose Hedge are both slaved to the Medium Rose (Master Mesh). 

Faces - Medium Rose - 2632
            Large Rose - 4034 on 2 tiles (2017/tile)
            Rose Hedge - 5026 on 2 tiles (2513/tile)


Medium Rose appears in the catalog under Garden Center/Shrubs for 24 Simoleons.
Large Rose appears in the catalog under Garden Center/Shrubs for 48 Simoleons.
Hedge Rose appears in the catalog under Garden Center/ Shrubs for 88 Simoleons.
Will satisfy a Sim's need to purchase a shrub.
Visible in Lot/Neighborhood View.


The two Rose Bushes retain the same GUID's assigned by SamataBlack so they'll replace the originals and anywhere you've used the originals on lots.  The filenames are changed to differentiate between the originals and my seasonal versions.  You cannot use my seasonal versions and SamantaBlack's versions together.  You must remove her versions from your game to use mine.

The Rose Bushes and Hedge are Seasons compatible and will change with the seasons.  The seasonal changes only work if the Seasons EP is installed. It can also be used without Seasons, but only the summer state will appear.  There are only subtle changes between the Spring, Summer and Fall states.  The Spring state has full leaves but only a few rose buds.  The Summer state has full leaves with roses buds and roses in full bloom.  The Fall state has yellowed and wilted leaves with rose buds and roses in full bloom.  The winter state has no foliage or flowers.  Created using a Template by Raynuss.




Download includes the default rose texture (red) and 6 rose recolors in blush, brandy, carnation pink, crimson, white and yellow.

Tested in a vanilla game with all expansions plus M&G.

  5. Thanks everybody. These are my favorite roses and I always wanted to make them seasonal. BTW, every plant you see in the picture at the top of this post is Seasons Compatible. They are either seasonal plants that I've created from scratch or non-seasonal plants from my favorite creators that I've made seasonal(all except the potted plant on the left). If you see any that you want, let me know and I'll upload them here.

  6. Thank you SO much! I am crazy about seasonal plants.

    Have you seen Nengi's low-poly tulips? I would LOVE some realistic seasonal tulips. The Maxis ones leave much to be desired!

  7. Oh...Oh...Oh! Perfect roses for the English garden! Thank you, Ray!

  8. Ohhh...thank you so much!!!
    I wonder could it be possible for you to make seasonal the hydrangea bushes of this same set?
    I actually tried myself but I'm no good at it, and I have to confess I have all your plants in game...
    Your work is amazing, Ray Nuss! =D

  9. Actually I've looked at those hydrangea bushes. One of them is poorly mapped in that the textures are stretched and look bad. The other seems to be all right though. A second problem is they are WAY oversized. I have hydrangea bushes in my garden and they grow, at a maximum, to 2 to 2 and a half feet tall. The Bioshock plants look to be 4-5 feet tall and the flowers are as big as a Sim's head! I would have to scale them down to a more realistic size. I would also have to mesh a winter state (hydrangeas shed their leaves in winter) although that's not too big a deal.
    Aside from those problems, it's a pretty straight forward process to convert them to seasonal bushes. I'll put them on my to-do list. :)

    1. I'm going to change my last reply to birdofhermes1988. The more I look at the Bioshock hydrangea bushes, the more I'm displeased with them. They're too big, the leaves are definitely not hydrangea leaves and they aren't even shaped like hydrangea bushes. So, since I'm a bit OCD when it comes to realism, I've decided to create a hydrangea from scratch. I've already created the textures I want to use and a preliminary mesh. All I have to do is refine it.

    2. Oh well no problem with that xD
      Actually I own some Hydrangeas in real life almost six feet tall with very big flowers, I think it's an old variety and very difficult to find (at least here in Italy)
      I guess I didn't take into consideration that the Bioshock's shape are very strange...my mistake LoL
      I'm quite excited to know your working on a new hydrangea!!!
      I hope - when you're happy with it - you'll show it to us. =)
      Thank you for your answer and for your work!!!
      (sorry for my awkward english)

    3. I know there are over 70 species of hydrangea and one is a tree. The shrubs must be pruned of dead stems annually or they get quite unsightly. The trees grow up to nine feet tall and require no pruning. There is even a variety that is a vine that will grow up to 98 feet, climbing up trees. The variety I'm familiar with is the shrub and that is what I'm attempting to create for TS2 and if course I'll show it. In fact I intend to share it when completed.

      Your English is very good. I just wish my Italian was as good! :)

  11. I love all your plants Ray...so nice to have more realism in the game!! Thanks for all you do!

  12. First, thankyouthankyouthankyou!!! Roses that behave like...well, roses! I've wanted all the bushes redone since Seasons was released, and was so disappointed to discover they did not change state. I love all of the plants you have made or altered. Any that you upload I would be love, and glom onto in a heartbeat.

    And (since you *did* offer, sort of...) I have a request. Even before Seasons, the bougainvillea has driven me crazy. I live in bougainvillea territory, and (1) without vigorous, regular pruning, they are a *vine*, (2) cold kills them--they are strictly tropical--and (3) the blossoms are tiny, tiny white trumpets surrounded by vividly coloured bract leaves. I have no idea what that bush is, but bougainvillea it is not. Is there any way you could make it look like something plausible?

    1. Clearly the Maxis or EA team had no idea what a bougainvillea is because what they call "Babbling Bougainvillea" has no resemblance to the real thing and there is nothing I can do to make it even mildly resemble a bougainvillea. I could however, make you a seasonal plant that looks like a bougainvillea. The problem with making a seasonal bougainvillea is the fact that they only flourish in warm climates so only the flowering spring state and the non-flowering summer state exist. There is no real fall or winter state since the area where they thrive has no fall or winter where the leaves fall or the plant becomes bare. The latter two states would be just a repeat of the summer state in warm climates. The second problem is that they are vines, so should they be made to climb an arbor or trail on the ground? I would be happy to make one for you if you can clarify what you prefer from the above alternatives.

    2. Honestly, all I was hoping for was for some sort of default recolour to *replace* that thing EA calls a bougainvillea with something that actually resembles a temperate zone shrub--and *any* realistic shrub you might come up with would be awesome.

      However, the thought of a rich, drapable (must attach to fences, like several of the outdoor lights?) two-season vine to adorn Strangetown and Twikkii Island has me drooling. Of all the foliage in game, imho EA screwed up desert plants the most, with tropical not far behind.

  13. I'm so impressed with your skills to make plants more realistic! Thank you so much for sharing them with the community. I was wondering if I could make a request for three flower types. Is it at all possible to get flowers from 'Wood for Sims' converted into seasonal plants for the Sims 2? The flowers are, The Outdoor Dahlia, The Outdoor Gerbera and The Outdoor Roses. http://www.woodforsims.de/html/detail_wfs2_plant_outflowers.html

    1. Thank you so much for the nice compliment. I'm glad you like my conversions. I have the WFS sets you speak of and I'll take a look at the flowers you mentioned and see what I can do. In all likelihood, it will be possible.

  14. I really hope that it's possible,fingers crossed lol. Thank you Raynus even if it turns out that you can't make the flowers seasonal.

    1. I'm sure I'll be able to make them seasonal. I've already started working on them.
