Policy and Information

POLICY / TERMS OF USE:

I'm pretty lenient about what happens to the stuff I make seeing as I'm lenient with stuff other people make. It's a game after-all and I'm into sharing-is-caring and all that. All I ask in return is that you don't claim anything here as your own or upload them to paysites either. It's definitely alright to include them in your sims, alter them, rip them apart, recolor, retexture or paint over. It'd be really nice if you show me what you made!

INFORMATION:

Feel to free to comment on posts. Anonymous commenting is on so people without LJ or Dreamwidth accounts can join in on the fun. A simple 'thank you' is really appreciated and means a lot. I'm willing to consider requests but suggestions are always welcome. WCIFs are okay and I'll try my best to help you locate things as possible. I just won't guarantee since I tend to shuffle through downloads a lot. If you need to contact me at all, go right on ahead!

Update + Sims 3


 
Hey guys! Sorry for the lack of updates. School has started for me and the workload just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Currently, classes are suspended because of the A(H1N1) flu outbreak thus the update.

I haven't been playing a lot of Sims 2, honestly. I tried out the Sims 3 the week it came out and I don't think it sucks as much as some people say it does. I actually like it. I'm a very visual person so all the beautiful scenery is a nice touch. And I love the traits system! And the Create-a-Style tool IS ABSOLUTELY HEAVEN-SENT! I can spend hours and hours designing a home, making sure everything matches or goes with one another. I think it's wonderful! :)

Though one hang-up on Sims 3 is that my graphics card really can't handle all the anti-aliasing. To have nice smooth graphics, I have to max out all the graphics options, which slows down the gameplay alot. The picture above is one I took on a medium-setting and heavily photoshopped to make it all appear smooth and soft.

I have no idea what to make as far as CC goes since it's been a while since I've last done this. I'm open for suggestions and all that. :) Fire away!

Asian Persuasion - Clothing Edits


Hurray for these being done! I probably started these a million years ago but I refixed (yes, refixed, meaning for the 8th time) the mesh and subsequently the mapping and subsequently, the texture and alpha and sajdklsdj these puppies are finally USABLE!  So these are the EA Store Asian Fusion kimono dress mesh with the Club Crimsyn Nekkid boots.

Some BASIC INFO: 8 colors, 3 are the original Maxis extracted and applied to this mesh and 5 recolors by yours truly. They're all in the huge preview below. Mesh included. All the holes (meaning the strips under the skirt, under the arm holes) are matched to the dress color. Sadly, they have no fat or pregnant morphs. These are for female adults and young adults.


Policy and Credit: Terms of Use located here. Resource post is currently a work-in-progress but is located here. Feel free to ask questions of any sort. Credit to Maxis, of course, Club Crimsyn, Jour, Ephemera, Pooklet, Azaya for the skintones used in the previews.

The Fink Tank : Hair Retextures


I found these on Yagi Sims and waited for the lovely people on SimsCave to find and upload them. Yagi Sims have a couple beautiful hybrid Peggy-New Sea meshes up and they're just waiting for a retexture. I used Nouk's textures on these since Pooklet's Vintage D's edits didn't work as well as I wanted to for this one.

Info: Binned, Familied, Compressorized with the Yagi Sims mesh included. 8 natural colors as shown below. They're named properly and have the appropriate tool tips. The elder file is attached to the Blonde, which is my custom, in case you want to take out certain colors.

Policy and Credit: Terms of Use located here. Resource post is currently a work-in-progress. Model used for the in-game preview is Daryan the amazing non-pale zombie. Feel free to ask questions of any sort.

You Are My Slave: Hair Retextures


Posting these here first because it's the easiest. These are XM Sims Flora #87 with Phobia's alpha edit because I love it so. I figured non-Maxis-Match people would like these without having to force the Neena_Needles textures on them so I retextured and shared. :)

Info: Binned, Familied, Compressorized with the mesh in 8 colors as shown below. They're named properly and have the appropriate tool tips. The elder file is attached to the Blonde, which is my custom, in case you want to take out certain colors.

Cobra Starship : Hair Retextures


 
I don't know which you prefer but I'm not a big fan of heart clips on my hair meshes. Here's Peggy's latest free hair without the said heart clips! These were impossible to alpha edit out so I cracked open Milkshape and deleted them.  As like before, these are retextured with Pooklet's edits of Vintage D's edits of Nouk's textures.

Info: Binned, Familied, Compressorized with the modified Peggy mesh included! 8 colors as shown below. They're named properly and have the appropriate tool tips. The elder file is attached to the Blonde, which is my custom, in case you want to take out certain colors.

IMPORTANT!: If you have the original Peggy mesh, this one will override the previous one. It's a replacement mesh. Therefore, this is a modified mesh that you must use for it to show up like I previewed. To be safe, take out the old mesh and use this one instead.

Mandarin Phrasebook : Hair Retextures


As requested by Penny @ GoS, this is SAU's Male 29 hair mesh retextured with Vintage D's textures. It was actually my first time picking up the blending and warp tools for a hair retexture in Photoshop. Surpisingly, I thought it was okay and Penny thought it was okay so I guess it was okay to post it already. :D These are already posted at GoS but I guess there's no harm in putting them up here as well.

Sorry for smushing everything in the header, I figured I'd save space and time by putting all the stuff you guys need/want to know right up top already. It's named Mandarin Phrasebook simply because I have one on my desk right now, so no witty out-of-the-way song titles here.

Info:
Binned, Familied, Compressorized, (I couldn't do the importing-DXT-SimPE method without a significant crunch in texture quality so I opted not to anymore) with the SAU mesh included because the site's been down for months.

Just a heads-up, there's an almost-invisible line on the hair when you zoom in on it. It's bearable, barely visible, but it's there. I have no idea where it came from and I've already spent hours combing through various files to figure it out what went wrong. :|

The Infinite Playlist : Hair Retextures

 

I bring new hair retextures! These are SAU Myos female mesh #15 retextured with Pooklet's edits of Vintage D's edits of Nouk's much loved textures. These were a hella lot tricky to mess with if you take account of all the waves and curls, and yes, I warp-tooled and blended each curl to close-to-perfection. And I believe it's paid off. I'm posting these exclusively at my dreamwidth account first so hop on over here, bookmark it or subscribe to me to keep up with the fastest updates.

Info: These are binned, familied, compressorized, tool-tipped and correctly named for your convenience. 8 colors as shown below. The mesh is included because SAU has been down since forever and it was a whole ordeal to locate the mesh initially.
