Leave me in CAS for too long and things like this tend to happen.

OMG is this the entire cast of Venture Brothers?  AMAZING.

Back to Sims 2 stuff!

I’ve always thought the cardigan with little hearts on it would be adorable on any other outfit.  & then I decided that since I think it I should make it happen.

& then I found out why nobody seems to want to tackle that cardigan.  Who the fuck at EA texture mapped that thing?

Anyone who’s familiar (or wants to take a peek at) the original cardigan mesh is welcome to it, but it was a mess & I’ve been working on remapping it for DAYS.  Finally ended up just stacking the maps for the sleeves on top of each other (so you paint one sleeve but it shows up on both arms) to make enough room on the texture map to fit everything.

Ugh.

Justin Cleveland & Tara DeBateau from Belladonna Cove.

I took a few liberties with them… which was mostly just assuming that YA Justin would grow a beard like his uncle’s & that YA Tara suddenly likes hats.

Rick & Violet from Desiderata Valley.

I think they look decently enough like their TS2 counterparts.  Rick’s face was not easy.

Puck Summerdream & Melody Tinker because I didn’t have any other TS2 Teens to go with either of them.

At this point I don’t even know.  I’m going to end up with a TS4 Nhood full of poorly made TS2 Teens.

I’m just going to start sharing all of these (Origin name: LifaTavros) & ya’ll are all welcome to try to make them better or whatever.

I don’t know about these two.  They’re actually pretty tough to do in TS4; I just did the best interpretation I could.

I think what’s getting me is that Romeo feels kind of right to me, if just because he keeps doing the Blue Steel face every time I zoom in on him… then I tried to differ Mercutio’s face from Romeo’s in the same way it is in TS2.

Any tips would be appreciated, I’d like to get them a little more accurate before I share.

Another round of TS2 basegame Teens made for TS4.

I think I got the Capp chin as well as I could.  Miranda’s pretty accurate as far as I can tell (aside from the green hair, there is no blonde/brown in TS4 so I just chose a random color) & Tybalt’s frown comes out fairly good.  Any suggestions before I upload them would be appreciated.

Guess who’s making TS2 Sims for TS4.  Better jump on the bandwagon, right?
If anyone has any tips on how to make them look more like the TS2 versions, let me know.

Aaahhh! I love them! :D
I think that your version of Johnny and Ripp are pretty close to perfect (and that’s easily the best Ripp I’ve ever seen), and Ophelia is really good too, but she’s harder to capture because her features are more subtle. You’ve got her eyes and nose, but I think I’d change the shape of her eyebrows a little, perhaps?
You did such a great job with these! I can’t get over it.

Thank you so much!  I’m glad you liked them.  I tweaked Ophelia’s eyebrows just a little bit, as shown, & I uploaded all 3 of them as a household in case you wanted to play around with them (I’m sure you could improve them all).
I’m having trouble finding them just by searching my origin ID (LifaTavros) but they come up close to the top of the list searching Most Recent by family name “Smith” & refining the results to households with 2-3 Sims.

lilsisterg replied to your post: "Dorm Dweller" as non-default, in EAxi…

Thank you so much for the bodyshape conversions (especially Rio).

I’m glad you’re enjoying them!  I love the Rio Bodyshape too.  If you go back through my Creations tag, the vast majority of the things I’ve done include Bodyshape options, maybe you can find other things you like there. & I always welcome seeing pics of my stuff in other people’s games so feel free to share how you’ve used them!

"Dorm Dweller" as non-default, in EAxis size plus all 7 Bodyshape sizes I use (Faerie, Fashion Model, Fitchick, Rio, Classic Pinup, Voluptuous, & Renaissance) for females Teen thru Elder with all 3 morphs.  Set as Everyday & Outerwear because I guess maybe Spring/Fall outerwear or Sims who live in warm climates.

Also a new purely custom outfit.  A peasant blouse with cargo pants & sandals.  Again, I have never said I had good fashion sense, but I thought it was a cute casual outfit.  EAxis size plus all 7 Bodyshape sizes I use (Faerie, Fashion Model, Fitchick, Rio, Classic Pinup, Voluptuous, & Renaissance) for females Teen thru Elder with all 3 morphs.  Set as Everyday only.

I’m still working on Bodyshaping & age-converting the rest of the default meshes I released last week, & I have a couple unreleased custom meshes hanging around that I’d like to get out too.  I’m still working on it!  Have patience & you will have Simthings.

plumbbobtoggle reblogged your post ALL YOU SIMMERS! and added:

Didn’t the conversion database have a page with shoes?

Yes it does, but you just can’t ever have enough shoes.  ;)

The 3t2 shoes are nice & I will probably use some of them eventually but I’m also looking for obscure-but-fabulous shoe options out there… I know there were a few really well-meshed shoes on otherwise not-to-my-taste outfits back in the day, hoping to “save” some of them if I can find any of them.

ALL YOU SIMMERS!

For my next trick, I need volunteers from the audience.

I need all ya’ll to link me to some custom TS2 meshes that have AWESOME custom shoes attached to them.

Gonna go shoe-borrowin’ for the next set of new meshes (no worries, full credit will be given) & I need some very fabulous shoes for inspiration.  Any type of shoes will do as long as they’re meshed well, just point me in the right direction.

Please reblog, I want to gather up every good shoe out there.  Thanks!

Hey! Could you share the link for the originals for the "serious jogging" outfit you used for the tennis dress default? :D thanks xo

I made that mesh… from the top part of a Trapping mesh & some Teen shorts & the shoes that came on the dress originally.  I’ll share the custom meshes in a bit here.

I’m just working on finishing age conversions, a couple recolors of some of them, & Bodyshape versions before I release the customs.

Is it possible to get custom versions of Tomboy Goth, Serious Jogging and Cassandra Couture?

To you & everyone else who asked about it… yes.

The custom EAxis-size versions of everything & a couple of recolors of a select few of the meshes will be released later when I’m done resizing the meshes for Bodyshape.
