I'd love to join, I haven't got many idea's of what to make, but I suppose I could just take orders I create object meshes and have an obsession with "cleaning" .package files. (Eg removing redundant GMND's, GMDC's, SHPE, TXMT, TXTR, datalist extensions etc.)

I'm sure you can find some use for me.

Oh! And I've invited the team members who worked on the High Rollers project here too. They were a fun bunch to work with and I think they'll be an asset to this mod group.

They beat me to it! I am still working on sending them all out!

Welcome Kopple and ShanOw! I'll get your invites to the modding section sent out. We're just starting up and have to get the membership signed back up. In the meantime. Look over what little I've manage to set up so far to get ideas and give us some time to get some resource images for you all.

Check your PM's for the invitations to the sub groups. :D

Hi,
I want to thank you for the invitation to contribute in this project. I always liked your work and I am fascinated by the culture of native Americans and so it's great that I can help here.
I don't have much time at the moment but I'm sure that I will be able to create some stuff!
As I already know many of you I'm sure that we'll have much fun working together and the results will be great.

Hi folks!
Thanks Porkypine for the invitation, accepted with enthusiasm even if, as Jon said, I don't have so much time ...
Hope to contribute with something, just let ideas invade my brain (there's a lot of free space there LOL)
I see many known avatars around (ciao Bonnie )

Hey Porkypine

Thanks for the invite and I would love to be able to help. I've got quite a bit of time on my hands right now and have been trying to decide what to work on next. This is a great project and would love to be able to contribute. I have finally been able to replace the computer that I had lost during the Highrollers project so I think I'm ready to go - just point me in the right direction.

I know little about the native american history but am excited to learn!! I learned alot during our last project, especially about animation, so I hope I can expand that knowledge base here. Just let me know what you need me to do!!

You can find all of my creations here

Hey! Jon! Good to see you here and Welcome!

That's ok if you're busy right now. No time pressure here.. this is a long term project intending to make stuff for several tribes. We have a whole continent of culture to make stuff for. Right now, we need to set up things and decide who is working on what and then once we have the crew together and we all start working on stuff, I need to get cracking on that NezPerce hairstyle for Skye It's the first thing on my mod list. I promised it to her back on the Seminole project and said it would be the first thing I made when we started working on the Nez Perce.

But, first, we need to get some kind of defined shape to this ameoba

You made a very lovely lot for High Rollers and we have some other lot builders here so I may open a thread in the pow-wow section (modern) for casinos and modern houses and such. We'll want to try and make true-to-type casinos for the tribes that have them, then release them for that tribe. It will be nice to use some of the (currently) top secret stuff we made for High Rollers in those casinos! But we'll have to impatiently wait for that huge theme to be release from moderation. I have half a mind to put that hilarious link to the YouTube trailer that kopple made.

Anyway. Welcome! give me a little time to send your invites to the modding section. It's set up differently than the High Rollers theme modding section was cuz we're using Delphy's new forum layout. and to keep down the clutter, I'm only granting access to the main area for everyone and NezPerce for now and will later open up other areas when we have people using them that way the view doesn't get cluttered. Oh. And I am open to suggestions to improve the modding group work area.

Hi mama! Great to have you on board. When High Rollers premiers, they'll see all the lovely and fun stuff our team (High Rollers) made for that project. Like I said to Jon, I'll open a modern lot section here for casinos and modern buildings, etc. like tribal offices, etc. all that kind of modern stuff so you lot makers will have plenty of things to work on.

Right now., we're still getting people on board and I'm admitting all of you and also trying to get the resources together and uploaded. This is a long term project but we will publish little mini sets as we go so you can help out as you have time. :D

We are waiting for the original N8iveSims members to sign back up - I haven't heard from many of them yet and we have some new people who are joining up and you guys that I am coaxing over from High Rollers. We'll have a great team and you never know, because we'll be here for a long time cranking out kewl content, we might have people clammoring at the door to join up and mod with us!

Invites will go out a little later. I'm at lunch and just peeking in right now. Watch your PM's

Hey Lil' tex! Excellent! Welcome aboard! We have a blue tex here too. bluetexasbonnie is kind of co-lead on this team. So if you have any access problems or whatever, you can talk to her if you can't find me.

We're gathering quite a nice talented pool of creators!

I'm at work right now and just peeking in during lunch and between phone calls. (school just started and it's super busy!) so I'll get the invites out all at once. I won't get a full lunch because of all the interruptions

Oh, I was a bit surprised when I read this as I didn't keep casinos in mind when thinking of native Americans...
I made a quick wikipedia research and found out that there are casinos run by Indian tribes (btw, is it politically correct to say 'Indians'? I don't want to be insulting...) which is something absolutely new to me.
Modern buildings sound interesting for me but I'd also be interested in making some traditional quarters, probably also with the aid of some meshes.

Hey Alisar! Welcome aboard! Glad to have you here. I will get the invite sent out all at once when I have some time to contentrate on that. I'm at work and getting no proper lunch or break cuz it's the first day of college and we are SUPER BUSY! ~sheesh~ I am peeking in here now and again between phone calls and walk in customers.

I'm sure we'll find a way to use your talents. This is a long term project so you can work on things as you have time. We have just started to get our forum set u and need to get our resource pictures back online.

Yes that's fine. Of course, it depends on the circle you're in. the 'politically correct' people say 'native american' or 'american indian' or worse, 'indigenous native american' Most people however, if they don't just say their nation, just say Indian or NDN's, etc. whatever is easy. Most people I know, when they hear that indigenous stuff is to replace it with 'indignant'

The main goal of this mod team is to dispel the myths and misconceptions - that all indian people live on the plains in tipi's with a totem pole and a canoe out front and that there has been no change in society since 1800's and that all indian people are gone or ALL indian people are rich because they have casinos, etc. Yep world, there are all kinds of talented indian people in the out there doctors, lawyers, police, professors, scientists, nurses, mechanics, farmers, cattlemen, politicians, etc. you name it, we got it. However, only a few tribes are really rich from casino profits. Most nations struggle economically and are far from large cities that can support casinos. Tribes like Sho-ban in Fort Hall don't give out big cash per caps to the membership. They only make enough money from casino operations to support the intfrastructure - fund daily stuff on the rez like roads, tribal salaries, the schools, construction, land use, fisheries, housing, detox, snow plows, etc. all that kind of stuff. Once a year as a Christmas present, they give a small percap which varies from year to year to enrolled members. Enough to get a new washing machine or maybe a small tv, etc.

Skye is IN-- right now have some real life issues right now, but will be finishing up Chief Joseph; if someone will do his outfit that will make me happy. I figure he will need a different mesh for his outfit.

When in doubt, use clean installer

Oh yes, we plan on makingthe best representation as possible. I just got a changes needed on our High Rollers theme content that's in moderation so I will be working on that this week.

No hurry. This is a long time project. People can come and go as they have time. We will be releasing mini-themes along with the big theme projects so people can just collaborate on making Chief Joseph for example, one person makes the sim, another makes the hair and someone else does the clothing. We can hold the finished sim to release with the other Nez Perce stuff or it can be published on it's own. That's something that can be disscussed individually.

If you can post a picture of your preferred outfit and hairstyle, then we'll know what you'd like for your sim. Go into the Mod group Main meeting room and find the SIMS thread and post there. :D

Hi guys!!! It's been a while!!!

I'm willing to help with anything related to images, creating textures, object or clothing recolors, you name it. I can also simpose, so if there is need for it I will help.

But I don't have much time as to create meshes, so I don't think I could help in that area.

How can I do a kitchen that are playable? Any suggestions on things I can use?

Finding the 'right' stuff to use is very difficult. From looking at your lots at Sims Crossing you probably already have a better collection of suitable downloads than most folks. You might also look at the original release -- I'm hoping we can make a bigger collection of 'outdoor rough living' objects.
