aquilegia: (Default)
Long time no see. I remembered I had these defaults that I had taken screencaps of but never uploaded, and when I went to look at them in-game (after getting the damn thing to start) I thought they were nice enough to be worth sharing. I also discovered some outfits I'd totally forgotten I'd made because I hadn't taken screencaps of them.

Unlike the previous however many times, I'm not going to make any promises one way or another of if I'll make more stuff, because my gaming whims are capricious and my creating whims even moreso. Also, I hate taking screenshots more than anything.

Sorry, no swatches this time, just preview pics.

Onward. )

Second verse, same as the first. Difference here is that I borrowed heavily from other creator's textures to make these, and there are no mesh edits; all textures work with the waist ridges, which provides an extra and rather nice 3D effect.

Thanks to Pooklet, CuriousB, and Aelia for color actions.

AS WITH ALL DEFAULTS, THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE (per item).

I haven't been around much making things-wise lately because creativity has been at a low ebb for the past month and a half here in Aquilegialand.

But sometime back I made some default replacement clothes, and after a while of actually playing and seeing them in action I could decide which ones were good enough to share. A couple have built-in mesh edits that don't change the mapping so existing recolors will still look fine -- in fact, they will look even better because I made the meshes look better! There is one exception but you'll see that when we get to it.

This is an ENORMOUS project that started as noodling around to see if I could salvage a few Maxis meshes and grew into an absolute monster. These replacements cover 56 non-hat Basegame hairstyles; the additional 6 hiders hide the styles I loathe too much to touch. Some styles are completely retextured, others only softened a bit and recolored.

Allow me to crow: some of these styles were absolute bitches. Maxis failmapping was in full force in the basegame, with continuous parts of meshes often mapped in completely different places, making it difficult to avoid big, ugly seams with retextures (and in the case of the Short style, even Maxis couldn't avoid such).

Through careful blending, lots of cursing, and the blessing that is previewing via Milkshape, I managed to retexture these styles in a way that minimizes the weird mapping. They aren't perfect; I had to do some blending magic with the Maxis textures to get this to work, and as a result the textures a little funky along those seams. They're good enough for my game; you'll have to choose whether or not they're good enough for yours.

I also made the mullet style workable through a mesh edit as well as a retexture. The mesh is a part of the package, as the texture really doesn't work with the original mesh.

All files have been compressorized.

TEXTURE DEFAULTS

All custom 'mirror' colors have been replaced as well as the binned styles.

I've edited some styles to texture reference the opposite gender's textures, where the styles used the same mapping. This saves considerably on file size, but PLEASE BE AWARE: this means certain age conversions (AM mohawk and AM Longdreads) will end up using Maxis textures unless you fix them.

Some files may look particularly large; this is because they had many custom colors, required large texture sizes for quality, or both.

Remember, these are DEFAULT REPLACEMENTS: You can have only one of any given replacement.

Part 1

Second verse, same as the first -- except this time I reshaped every TM&AM mesh with Suit in the name. This includes everything from that pink leopard print suit with the bare chest to the ever-so-formal tuxedos.

These are MESH replacements: you will have to take out any other mesh replacements you might have for the same outfits. However, they get along just fine with TEXTURE ONLY replacements! Please let me know if you know of any good texture replacements for these outfits.

CAVEAT: I'm not reshaping all base game outfits, only ones I feel are worth salvaging.

In pt 2. every AM mesh has a preg morph, and I converted the two suits that weren't available for TM and texture linked them. These are properly proportioned for the teen body, and draw their textures from the game files and will pick up any default replacement textures you are using.

Lots of pictures, extra notes, and download )

Pt. 3 might be tops, might be everyday outfits. It remains to be seen!

A look through the base game clothes gave me the impression that Maxis really didn't like men -- especially not fat men. Despite the athletic shape to the male sim body, there is only a small handful outfits (aside from the briefs) that don't look poorly tailored and a few sizes too big, and one of those outfits is the male maid outfit. The fat men get it even worse; they look like a sack of potatoes with sticks stuck in no matter what they are, or are not, wearing.

I've decided to fix that, starting by reshaping the TM & AM fat morphs based on the same idea that governs the female fat morph: the fit morph plus padding over top. I'm also reshaping the fit morphs so that the clothes look properly tailored and adding preg morphs to appropriate outfits. The beauty of the reshaping of the fat morph is that the new top will still fit any bottoms you have that are fat morphed (when I get to the tops, that is :D).

These are MESH replacements: you will have to take out any other mesh replacements you might have for the same outfits. However, they get along just fine with TEXTURE ONLY replacements!

CAVEAT: I'm not reshaping all base game outfits, only ones I feel are worth salvaging.

Pt 1. Set includes AM&TM nude, briefs, tank+boxers, boxers, pajama pants, and TM swim trunks. All AM meshes have preg morphs. Also included are TM conversions of the AM briefs and pajama pants. These are properly proportioned for the teen body, and draw their textures from the game files and will pick up any default replacement textures you are using.

Lots of pictures, extra notes, and download )

Stay turned for Pt. 2: Suits!

SO. HIATUS.

In a day and a half I will be, volcanoes willing, traipsing off across the sea to the wilds of the Northwestern United States, where I will battle hipsters, hippies, and indie musicians for delicious coffee. I'll be mostly out of commission until late June, possibly early July--I'll have regular internet access but I'll also be BUSY, so while I'll drop in from time to time I will basically not be around. I'll screen anonymous comments until I get back; I don't think there's going to be any trouble (read: spammers), but why tempt fate?

So enjoy your pretties, enjoy the start of the season (whichever it is for you), and don't break the Internet while I'm gone. <3

An alien skintone inspired by one of my favourite weird fruits. This one took a while due to noticing yet another glaring flaw every time I thought I was done. :D

Not content to have aliens that were sims with green bodypaint on, I set out on a quest to make a blend that was more truly alien--dragonish with bony and weird parts and unusually coloured.

Both genders Teen through Elder use the same face. TF-AF share the same textures, as do TM-EM. Default Replacement zip includes two handy additional files: Argon's Fit Fixes, so that aliens will change fitness states, and BastDawn's TF alien eye fix. Alien eyes not included.

I may make some oddly-coloured-human alien skins later. I kinda want a pale strawberry candy coloured one...

Because it isn't Halloween without zombies. )

In other news, I am BUSY AS FUCK. Other than fixing the last issue on the Starfruit skin and posting it, expect me to be more or less disappeared until January.

And finally two things I couldn't be bothered to make previews for--

Club Crimsyn costume makeup made into default replacement costume makeup )

Now to dig through the stuff packs I arrrquired for meshes to chop to bits.
