Information (Click for more details):
This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
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.
This is a toy I've always wanted. Now at least my Simmies can have one.
Please note that this object REQUIRES Pets or later. I don't want to be responsible for crashing your game. I am working on a BaseGame version, but it still makes children float when they play with it...
Edit: I forgot to mention that both files in the download need to go in your Downloads folder in order for this to work.
Also, NixNivis brought it to my attention that I forgot to stress a warning about using an NPC Controller. Please, especially if you don't do it often, be sure to back up your hood and download shinies before installing this object. I don't believe anything bad will happen, but there is always a good chance of something unexpected when dealing with NPCs.
Had a little trouble getting this one completed. Been looking for the tutorial by shaklin for ages; with no luck. Finally got tired of searching, and said 'WTF- maybe I can figure it out myself.' Had a working toy a bit later, but it would override the original in the catalog. Finally discovered a post from Echo that had a working link to the tute, and found out I needed to make a controller NPC to get it to work right. So now I'm able to share. Hope you get some giggles out of it.
Kids like it too
Pets, not so much
As noted above, I don't have a fully working basegame version yet.
It bugs me a bit that the toy really doesn't do much but zoom around. Once the BG problem is fixed, I'll work on getting some animation overlay so his fingers can wiggle while running.
Only one recolorable subset.
Texture is Eaxis statue texture, recolored in GIMP 2.8.2
Mesh by me, adapted from EAxis statue "What you lookin at", using Blender to articulate the fingers and slightly remap the UV
Catalog location: Buy Mode>Electronics>Entertainment
In-game price: 151
Thanks to Tashiketh for this site and its great community
to Quaxi and his team for program
to Numenor and RGiles for the that makes recolors possible
to jfade for the Compressorizer
Special thanks to shaklin and Echo, who so graciously shared their knowledge and hard work so others like me could learn to do this.
