When meshes explode...

... I get annoyed.


I've got a few ideas for the Creator Challenge over at MTS2. But I haven't even gotten past this first mesh yet. *sigh* Why can't Sim kids just stay skinny? Then we wouldn't need fat morphs. (And they wouldn't end up with pixel-clogged arteries, either.)

Coming Soon...

The picture above is just a sneak preview. It took me all day to get the mesh to work properly. That's the problem with Frankensteining meshes. Child mesh bit + toddler mesh bit = a big mess. The UV mapping alone nearly drove me crazy. But it's working now, and all the elbows are in the right place (yes, this was an issue...).

The next Creator Challenge on MTS2 is going to be kids' stuff. Sounds like it'll be right up my alley!

New Clothes Alert!

These are just some simple pajamas for girls. They're probably more suitable for summer... but it's summer somewhere, right?

New Clothes Alert!

I found a way around the blurring, so I decided to take pics and upload these, if only to get them off my hard drive and out of my hair. These have been a rather frustrating project, and I'm still not 100% happy with them, but the nature of alpha meshes means that I may never get them to move exactly the way I want them to.

In any case, I think some of them are kind of fun. And my Sims always like getting new clothes to wear.

Video card fry-up!

I probably won't be uploading any new Sims clothes for the foreseeable future. My computer (most likely the video card) has decided to choke on me and blur my Sims. Without being able to see the clothing in the game (and take pictures of it), I can't really get it to the point where I feel comfortable with releasing it.

So if you were looking forward to the alpha skirts, I'm sorry! They're on hold for now.
