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.
I first got this idea from seeing Crisps and Kerosene's Flowercat collar. I was excited by the idea of making a collar with a custom mesh and I immediately set out to make a bell collar and a ribbon collar. Sadly, the bell collar is suffering from currently unfixable distortion problems, but I finally got the ribbon collar ready to use.
It's for adult and elder cats and comes in 9 colours - red, yellow, pink, green, purple, orange, blue, white and black. It won't overwrite the Maxis collars.
It stays on even when you're sleeping.
It clips a bit with long furred cats as the fur goes through it. It also stretches weirdly on cats with fat necks, but it's not too noticeable (well, in my opinion).
Being molested by a toddler? Collar will stay on.
Thanks and credits to:
Crisps and Kerosene for the Flowercat collar that was the first thing I poked around to see how she made the mesh and for forum help.
Paleoanth and Wes_h for their recolourable pet collars and recolouring tutorial.
Deedee for her tutorial on how to make a custom mesh work and her spiky cat and dog collars, that I got the correct bone assignments from. Also for answering questions when I messed stuff up.
Violette for the original ribbon collars for sims, that I used the mesh from.
Aileena for asking Violette's permission to use her mesh, as I don't speak Russian.
simmer22 for figuring out what I needed to fix to stop the collar sticking out when the cat turned its head.
It even stays out of the way while you're licking your arse. XD
collar = 1684
buckle = 2
