Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hi there!
For this upload ive got here is a female character from a final fantasy game - again. This is Fran; the only unique-looking character on FFXII (and Ashe ^^). the rest of the characters dont have the fantasy look - though Vaan is based on the traditional Tidus/Cloud look...

anyway, let me give you a short background/ profile on this character:
Name: Fran
Game: Final Fantasy 12 (FFXII)
Race: Viera (a rabbit-like species)
Hometown: Eruyt Village
and if you are interested on reading about this character and the game click here

here are some screenshots:




and for fun: (these characters arent actually into each other in the game but im making the other character Vaan as well ^^.)


here is the sketch of what fran should look like in costume and face structure:


ive made my best effort to make the strange nose. she looks normal from the front but when she turns her head its so unusual.

included:
eyes: red lovely eyes by Lyholy
skin: fantastic animal skintone created by EMINO - but slightly changed by me.
shadow: lovely shadow created by Helaene - february shadow
liner: beautiful eyeliner can be found atJustSims2 - by Barcelonista - download the file with the title 'Eyeliner'
brows/front of helmet/ fringe: by me
recolored bunny ears: by me
recolored 'washu' hair: by me
retexture and colour of clothes mesh: by me

NOT included:
MESH > clothes: created by ~2-for-u~ - found on page 12 of the MESH section its called MESH'longalphaskirt'.
MESH > rabbit ears: Seilyne
MESH > Hair: wicked_sims' Washu hair

and i am working on other stuff to: VAAN < YUNA (FFX-2 COSTUMES) < ......Zack. i cant find a good clothing mesh for him but ive got his face

+ im 1/2 way through HOLLOW BASTION lot from kh1!! and started on Alantica - will be worked on in Easter!

now before i say anything else i would appreciate it if you would not upload my content on exchange - or change it slightly to look like yours!

-if you DO like my creation and download it i would like to ask if you would click the box (to the left) which says thanks. or if you want, leave a comment to say thanks.

You run to the end of the passage and go through a door...you have to fight another one but it's easier and you can stop it moving briefly if you touch the torches on the bridge (hope that wasn't spam (XD)) ^_^

But anyway yeah, thanks again *beans you to goop* XD

Amazing, I love the game and Im rlly trying to get all the characters of the several FF Games in my Sims. Seeing as this is my most recent finished FF game, Ive been dying to get these chars. Cant wait for Balthier (<3 <3 <3 <3 <3) and Vaan, maybe even some of the others (I have them atm, but always room for improvement^^) Thnx a lot for this and hoping to see the others soon, I check at least twice a day ^^

I have a doubt. I installed Fran and the clothes, but when I create the character in The Sims 2, Fran's clothing does not appear... Could you help me about this. Many thanks in advance and congratulations on making Fran so good.

thanks Designer:
im not sure on the actual reason but i will give you some ideas which i have which may be the solution:
1. did you download the meshes? for the clothes click the link and go to clothes meshes (female) and click MESH'longalphaskirt' on page 12 - it has a picture of a tan model with blonde hair modeling the mesh -.-
and for the other links - download the actual mesh(es)
2. did you install the sim pack after you install the 'rar' file. because usually after i download a sim and install the rar there is another icon of a white (outline) sim on a blue on a blue platform. - usually it is best to right click on it and open it with sims 2 pack Clean Installer then install it
3..........thats all i can think of so far and if that doesnt work or you have tried it you could go to this link here which has different articals on how to install stuff and custom content -- tell me if these suggests work or not. thanks

Awesome work on Fran, she workes beautifully with the other FF characters, I was wondering if a Balthier was in the works, or any of the Judges(although the Judges might be hard) If you know where I might find Balthier, that's be awesome

Hello! Wonderful job on fran, she looks really good. But I have one issue about it...I downloaded everything I needed to get her, and she does work - but in pieces. For some reason its placed the hair style in with the clothes, and I cant equip the hair and the clothes at the same time. When I put the hair on, it looks just like a floating head.
Its funny, but I want to know if you can help me find out what went wrong? I did read your text completely.

Thank you in advance, once again, fantastic job!

I'm having trouble with her too. Her clothes and everything show up perfectly in all of the screens EXCEPT for in the game, it just makes her clothing go back to default. It's annoying because it shows up just fine when you're creating her, in the body shop, etc D:

After messing around with everything, I think the problem is the mesh and/or the texture. I can get everything to work 100% except for the stuff on the mesh. :/

i dont know what the definate problem is yet but i'll check it out

reminder to others:
read where to get the meshes and what page to go on to get it.

theis picture is the one to click on (NOT THE ONE NEXT TO IT) though it looks alike comparing both meshes

thanks for the comment.

i havent seen much of the ff13 stuff yet but i like the peach-haired character design very much. If you are allowed milkshape then i'm sure you will create some awesome meshes. and yes, i do love final fantasy

I know this isn't really your fault at all, but the skirt mesh seems to be a broken link on the site you specify! Is there any other way to get it?

Sephichan - yes i found that problem when i re-downloaded it from their new site. you can get the mesh by downloading one of chriko's already textured clothes.
if you go to

FASHION > FEMALE ADULT > CASUAL > PAGE 41

you see a long burgurdy dress (with a beach-like background). download it and you will install thre mesh as well.

cutmeyemaya - thank you

Oh yeah, I downloaded this sim before (I did hit the thanks button so don't worry) but I did have one major problem with her (her outfit didn't show up) so I had to delete her. Once I think about having the FFXII sims back into my lot I'll try again. I probably didn't download the mesh correctly.

As for Zack, is it possible you could use Cloud's AC outfit but remove some parts of it? Like the long sleeve on his right arm and pant leg? I would direct you to a page that has his 1st class outfit, but that's a problem. It isn't free. Oh well.

I really hope you can put him up soon. I'm desperate to have him.

The clothes for Fran aren't working for me. :\ Instead of her outfit, I get this odd pink shirt/tan pants combination. Any idea why it's not working?
