This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
UPDATE 1/6/12The Myos Muffler can also be downloaded at All About Style, link is in the download section of this post and down below.

UPDATE 4/1/11 It has come to my attention that the shoulder weights did not appear and that the turban doesn't stay on all the time; I have fixed these errors plus some others I haven't caught before, the new shoulderweights mesh and turban recolour and other fixes are in the new Diekatze Meshes 2 .rar file I have uploaded. If it is not there yet, just wait till the cache refreshes. I have tested these and they should work now. If there are anymore errors that pop up, please let me know by PM. For the future downloaders, I recommend installing the Piccolo sim first and then put the content of Diekatze's Meshes 2 in the downloads folder in order for some of the fixes to work. Thank you

UPDATE 4/10/11 Not reeeeeally a necessary update but I just wanted to let those who are reading this thread know is that now I have a FAR better skin available for your Piccolo and it can be found HERE

Finally! Piccolo the badass green alien can now be apart of your neighborhood today! Hooray!

In case you didn't know Piccolo is from the Dragonball Z and he is a Namekian (species). He is the son of King Piccolo from Dragonball, so technically he is "Piccolo Jr", but still refers to himself as just Piccolo. As should be.

I personally thought I never would get this far with Piccolo, every mesh seemed to have a major problem, the textures would be awful and had to redo them, files would be corrupted or the game would crash, but I somehow made it through amidst the chaos.

Now, there's allotta things I need to mention in this thread, I hope I don't forget anything...

Custom Meshes by Me

Used Milkshape to make all my custom meshes and they all are recolourable (and I am quite sure they are all base game)

Piccolo Tunic Mesh
I have included Piccolo Tunic (although I just realized it's called a gi but I'm not going back to change the name on everything) mesh for both Adult Male and Elder Male. They can be worn for any occasion except as Underwear. I used the arms and chest of [Marvine, Beoboxboy] SynapticSim's Lean Body Builder V2. I also tried shaping the legs similar to the contours of the Lean Body Builder as well. I know the pants aren't as "baggy" as they should be, but if I were to make them too wide they would clip into everything. They slightly clip as, but only when the legs cross each other like resting on the bed or they would clip a little into the couch. But no major clips or issues that would seriously hinder gameplay. There is no preg morph or becomes fat while wearing this outfit.

Poly Count:
Faces: 2300
Vertices: 1860

Turban Mesh
I think this is my favorite mesh that I have made from scratch by far. He is wearing the turban mesh by default. This turban is an accessory mesh, not hair, so short cropped hair can be worn underneath if desired. It can be worn everywhere, anytime, even swimming and sleeping. That way he won't take it off and Oh no! He has no antennas! It can be worn with other accessories. Can only be worn by YAM, AM, and EM.

Poly Count:
Faces: 1003
Vertices: 1021

Namek Antennas Mesh
Included with the upload, You can have Piccolo alternately wear antennas if you don't want him wearing the turban all the time. Use the mirror to change accessories, you can make him wear both if you want but he would look rather silly. The antennas can be worn at all times, even swimming and sleeping. They can be worn with other accessories. This mesh can be worn by both male and female adults and elders (young adults implied). I do have teen, children, and toddler versions available but I shall upload them in another thread later.

Poly Count:
Faces: 811
Vertices: 568

Shoulder Weights
These shoulderweights (or shoulderpads, whatever ya want to call 'em) are to be worn with the scarf and cape. Without the scarf they are hovering above his shoulders, so they are only really meant to be worn along with the scarf and cape combo. You can't wear them swimming or sleep with them on - would you really want to sleep with these on do you? So he will take them off when he goes diving into the pool and whatnot. They can be worn with other accessories. They are attached to the movement of his clavicles (or collarbones) so if his shoulders aren't moving but his arms are, the arms may sometimes clip into the shoulderpads or anytime the arms perform radical motion. But otherwise no major glitches that hinder gameplay. They are available only for YAM, AM, and EM.

Poly Count:
Faces: 571
Vertices: 1070

Wrist Cuffs
Originially I was going to use generalzoi's bunched cuffs, but they had an odd glitch which I couldn't fix so basically being inspired by her bunched cuffs I managed to make these. Like the shoulderweights they do come off while swimming or sleeping, but they can be worn with other accessories. They are only available for YAM, AM, and EM.

Poly Counts:
Faces: 547
Vertices: 640

I used Milkshape to edit his face so that he can have those ridges over his eyes and pointy-ish nose (and remove those darn maxis eyelashes!). The ears originally came from GnatGoSplat's Zelda sim and was converted for male sims by pentabet, so now his ears will always match the skin color. Ah yes, and the best part is that his face and ears are genetic! Yes, that means his offspring can inherit his erm, handsome features. On a side note his skin and eyes are geneticized as well. I remade each Face Template for both genders and all ages so that this can work. They are default replacements for the CAS Face ArchCpol, which I do not think you will be missing. Oh, and I should probably put GnatGoSplat's advise here, in order to see the face and ears correctly, the Sims graphic setting under "Object Quality" should be set to "High"

Other Details

In this slightly fanservice-y pic I just want to be able to show other details you wouldn't be able to see in other pics. The skin is modified version of Ren/Louis' self-make up skin, all I did was added the details and modified the eye area. I tried my best to be accurate about the skin, unfortunately the "pillowy" muscle things were not going to work as they didn't look so great when lacking the 3d aspect, so I compromised with pinkish muscle-like texture. The extra details can only be seen on Teen though Elder males, children and females are only green. The body shape used in the pic is [Mavine&Beoboxboy] SynapticSim's LBBv2, also when Piccolo is in the shower his body will turn into this bodyshape.
I adjusted the alpha of generalzoi's Vampire Fangs to make them shorter. RAWR! Also adjusted the alpha of shadylady482's long nails to make them pointy.

Meshes Included with the Upload

- generalzoi's Vampire Fangs for All I have included because I have actually fixed them, they should not flash blue anymore

Meshes Ya Need

- SynapticSim's and generalzoi's Bodybuilder Cape mesh which can be downloaded HERE
-MyoS's Muffler mesh which can be found HERE although for some reason it always goes to one of MyoS's hairs, so you also would need to click on "Accessory" under "Sims 2" on the side menu in order to get to where the Muffler mesh is
-As of 1/6/12 the downloads doesn't seem to be working at the moment for the Muffler, so an alternate place to download it would be HERE at All About Style under "accessories" for Sims 2, then click "other"; download any scarf which states "mesh by SAU included"
-shadylady482's Long Nails mesh which can be found HERE
-crayonarefun's Showerproof Skintone linked to LBB mesh can be found HERE
-This is not necessary but just a side note, if you want Piccolo to keep his bodyshape in any clothes he is wearing then you can go either HERE or HERE

Due Credits

-The Lean BodyBuilder V.2 of which I used the arm and chest in the my Piccolo Tunic mesh is by [Marvine&Beoboxboy] SynapticSim and the LBB showerproof skin was created by crayonsarefun
-GnatGoSplat originally molded the pointy ears and pentabet made them available for males.
-Piccolo skin is modified Ren/Louis' skin; Natural Green lips also uses her skin's lips as base/alpha

Sorry I haven't said anything since the feature on this sim but I have been extremely busy with papers and whatnot, but I want to let everyone know and future readers that I read and appreciate all the comments I received! Danke! ^-^;

And I guess I might as well answer some of the questionswhile I'm here:
- I am planning on doing Goku next, but the others might be far later... you can always check my profile page for updates on future sims
- I don't think I will be making these for sims 3... I don't even own that game and it also looks harder to make character sims in that game

Sorry I haven't responded right away... I usually check everyday looking for notes, I did not think to look at any of the recent comments.

I solved the problem, that is, I wrote down an alternate link where the muffler mesh can be found. It can be found at All About Style HERE (details in the description of course).

Thank you for bringing this to my attention and now I hope you are able to download the muffler

Thank ou! Really! Now I can have Discolo from Dragon Fall parody XD
Do you have "Soson Goku" by the way? And "Chun Gohan"? And "Chicha" too? (Ok, that one is not so obvious, she is a parody of Chichi, I think)
And last, I never saw any episode of dragon fall, can you tell me who would be "Lancha"?

(Translated, fot the ones that did not get any of the parody jokes, they would be "unruly", "dumb goku", "dr-unkohan", "malt liquor", "boat")

Thank you very much for this it's awesome! I especially liked that you included the archetype replacement files, although in the future you might try using an all in one D/R set such as the one by selzi as templates. They contain the 16 GMDC files necessary for a default replacement, and are easier to deal with, both for creating and using in game than 8 separate files. the real reason that I'm posting is to ask permission to use blended versions of your Piccolo D/R arch in a set of replacement archetypes that I'm working on, with credit and links to you. I would also like permission to create a non default/replacement face arch of Piccolo, such as the one that I did using gnatgosplat's Zelda I would give you full credit and a link, and would use your archetype GMDC files so he would be unchanged for all ages/genders. the main advantage of a non D/R file is that they do not replace a face, but show up as an extra, I will also make either an extra template, or a mod, that allows one to choose if the face can spawn townies or not.The down side of the extra archs is that they take 3-5 hours to make and are a bit tricky. Please post an answer here or PM me. thanks again, good luck and happy Simming DR57
