Hi everyone.

I've been a lurker in Sims community and as I'm trying to make my own stuff I figured that, if I ever release something, I could do it here.

Just so you know, I'm disabled due to a mental condition that doesn't allow me to socialize properly with people I don't know, so do expect a lot of social awkwardness from me :(

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] le_plat_du_jour (this wouldn't be possible without you hon <3)and [livejournal.com profile] trappingit , it's working! \o/

amHairWavyShortMessy converted *almost* successfully

It needs some minor mesh tweaking (there's a teeny tiny gap on each side) but it's something very easy. [livejournal.com profile] trappingit suggested to make it fuller on the back of the hair and although I moved some vertices to do it, I'm not sure if it's full enough.

Well, next I'll be making it for teens - I don't usually play with teens, but as people will likely want this for their TM sims I'll do it anyway. I'm not going to bother converting this for children and toddlers, but if anyone wants to do it, tell me and I'll send the necessary files. And M2F conversions would be lovely :D

Now I need some volunteer(s) to retexture this. I like Pooklet's V3 textures better for my own game, but everyone is welcome to retexture it as they like. :) So if you'd like to retexture it, just tell!

Right, I wrote this stupid post before but DW ate it so...

[livejournal.com profile] glennisonfire requested some male hairs from TS3 to be converted to TS2 and as I'd love to have those as well for my game, I decided to give this request a go (posting this here and not at GOS because I don't feel like making a GOS account now) and here's the hair I chose to begin with, amHairShortWavyMessy from basegame:

TS3 to TS2 conversion of amHairShortWavyMessy

It needs a lot of work (more prodding at Milkshape, package building, new alpha and textures and so on), but I think you can get the idea.

If anyone ever comes to this dusty little journal, avoid the cobwebs and give me feedback, please :3

Thank goodness in a week or so I'm done with Uni - it's not a bad course, actually is pretty good because it is fully online so I don't have to go to real life classes and deal with people. Gah, I HATE dealing with people IRL most of the times and gave up two times of RL Uni because I had nervous breakdowns due to being afraid of people/not socializing properly/saying truths people can't handle and then being hated /o\

I have to do my final work, but most of time I'm not in the mood of doing it, so I get sidetracked and make shit like this:

skintone that works for both monolidded and doublelidded sims
(apologies for the use of the same brows and hair on both sims :\ )

See, it's the same skintone (I'm making a blended and handpainted skinset) and I haven't used any make up, but as you can see the eyelids fit both monolidded and doublelidded sims, depending just on the facial sculpt. I'm doing this to use on sims made with [personal profile] alfredaskew (at LJ) face templates. I'm not showing the rest of the face because I'm not done with it yet :(

Also, there's this:

eyeblend of nabila/dragonmandy/bruno

It is a small eye blend I'm testing, a mix of [personal profile] nabila and Bruno. I think I'll also make a sclera blend, that is at the same time animation-friendly AND realistic. That will be tough.

And regarding the hair I showed in the last post, Marja at [personal profile] le_plat_du_jour  (at LJ) shared precious info with me that helped me so much that I think I'm able to make that and more TS3 conversions. And as hopefully I'll be getting an awesome gaming laptop from my mom as a present for finishing Uni and then having a lot of free time, I expect to work a lot in hair conversions in the next months.

 Kinda tired of permanently wind-swept and/or lollipop-headed hairs for Sims 2, last week I tried to convert a nice and casual hair from Sims 3 (it has a lot of lovely hairdos):

my first hair conversion

I'm insanely proud of this as it was just my second time using Milkshape. Don't know if I'll ever suceed putting it in game as I can't really understand how to make the Simpe packages :(



I bled for the salvation of your soul.
