Patent T-Strap Pointy School Shoes
Updated: 14th Sep 2014 at 11:57 PM
It's been a while since I posted a mod, so yeah, here goes. This time, it's based on a pair of pointy-toed school shoes made and marketed by Next. As with my other shoe mods, they can either be worn as everyday wear (more specifically, as school shoes), and since they look pretty enough, your child Sim can wear them as a formal pair too.
As always, just copy the .package file to your Sims 3 Mods directory, which can be found at My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages. The Next_Pointy_src files are the raw project files for the mod (MS3D files, textures, etc), and thus aren't required to use the shoes, but you can poke into them in case you want to make a similar mod using mine as a base.
Special thanks to my pals at the American Girl Facebook groups, especially Shannon, Cindy, Colette and Courtney, the Downfall Parodies forum and GTAForums.
This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below for more information.

- - File was updated after upload was posted
1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.
For Package files:
1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).
For Sims3Pack files:
1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).
Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Not much to say, but I mod games as a hobby for more than three years and counting, and I'm also an occasional parodist and a pop culture critic. I first started modding back in my high school days, when I got myself a copy of the original Sims game, as well as a rather obscure Harley-Davidson racing game that used Targas for textures. I don't know how to make 3D models at that time, so I made do with some texture edits with billboards and various other assets.
It was in 2007 when I fell in love with the Grand Theft Auto series - the games were known for being highly customisable, so I decided to join in the scene and learn the ropes of GTA editing; this was when I made friends with several veteran modders. This also paved the way for some more modding adventures, which got me more into making mods for TS2 and eventually TS3.
