View Full Version : Behold! Oldie Brood Are In Da Hood!

17th Jun 2022, 12:11 AM
Here is a little project of reviving little Oldies family members in Sims 1.
Here are two of Oldie ancestors - Myron Oldie and Irma Oldie. They both are dead already in Sims 2.
It is revived version based on theirs death picture (avatar) in Sims 2. They are available as one family and as separated households who don't know each other yet.
Their character is the same, their look is the same like on death picture.
That was their's favourite clothes everyone seen them last time im Sims 2. SO DON'T PUT OFF THEIR CLOTHES LOL!
Myron's and Irma's teen-to-young-adult son Herb with his wife Coral and their adoptive child Mary-Sue Oldie (Pleasant in the future)
Have a look at the pictures to see their bios about how I imagined their youth storylines.
There are different families with various combinations.

I've never shared families so here is the first one. I hope I packed everything fine.
You need to add the resources to your corresponding folders
Character and Export files are in UserData... 1,2 or 3. Whatever
Skins folder is inside GameData
I dunno what will came up if any content from Export and Characters folder will be replaced.
Guess some of characters will be replaced LoL.
Files from Skins folder are safe to replace.
Anyways check out twice and compare! Files for replacement should be completely identical!
Otherwise - death! In particular. For some of your sims
who will be overwritten LoL. So do it with science!
Once you will finished they should appear in family bin.

Where can I find a female head with glasses? Or maybe there is a way to extract glasses mesh from existing heads.. Which is even better. I could just apply it to head that desired.

There are several different pairs of glasses in the game already; why don't you just use one of them?

There might be more, but I know that at least these exist:

There might have been a bit wrong place to share the question and that could be asked here (https://modthesims.info/forumdisplay.php?f=662) but I plan to share sims head once the glasses will found.

Specs looks something I really need. I'd like to know particular name of the mesh. Where to find it for extraction. Guess once extracted its name can be placed in second line in cmx file and all done. Right?

Maybe any tools to see the skn file name without extraction? I tried Sims Creator but seems it not shows accessories at all.
Found in animation.far

We have glasses you can use at SimFreaks. You can use Sim Attatcher to attach them to the mesh you are choosing. You can download Simattacher here: http://simfreaks.com/programs/simattacher/page-02.shtml from the left side of screen. and there are some glasses on page 2 and 4. just 2 pair There are other glasses around the site on other meshes if you find them, you can simply borrow them. The CU01 heads have glasses on top of the head, but those heads are a bit larger than regular sim heads.

If you want to reposition/resize the glasses on another head, you can do that using Milkshape 3D. or maybe blender? Just be sure to name the mesh something else maybe just add an _ and your skin name, so they don't clash, but please give credit to whomever made it and add a readme with credit to to "The Artist" at SimFreaks.com and include their readme's if you redistribute it. I don't check in here often, so if you have any questions, you can find me on the SimFreaks discord group or the Saving the Sims FB community

Heey! Thanks dude I've looked through the tutorial at your site. I did not know you are here and did not see any glasses so thaaaank uuuuuuu to show iiiiit :lovestruc . I won't use those you linked me and I'll show you why. GPA glasses looks fine enough and I'll attach it to head of my choise. Hopefully I'll have a chance to share the fruits of my 3-day labour in few hours. :D

Many thanks to Jerome from your site for this (http://www.simfreaks.com/jerome/guides/uk_guide1.htm) tutorial. That hass been just life-saving! Just what has been needed when found proper glasses!

I combined EA long haired guy's face with Herb's headband in various hair colors.

There is a set of recolors with lime headband


And there is a set of recolors with brown headband


All recolors are base game compatible and mesh is not required.
Just put bmp files into Skins folder.
Herb's face is also included.

All files are in corresponding archives.
