This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

Hello Everyone!!

After six months of work, I have finally finished the sword. This is my first hacked object, that I have ever made. In the .rar file, there is 3 files, 1 is the sword, 1 is the stand and the last one is a social object. You need all 3 objects in your game for everything to work properly.

UPDATE!!
17-1-2007 : After some people requesting it, I made it so the "Demonstrate Skills" interaction now adds body skillpoints. Your sim will gain them alot faster than usual, 1 and a bit skill points each time they do the interaction. See post in thread for a picture of it. POST

Mesh Details:

Sword Stand: 1856/1995 (f/v)
Sword: 1562/1302 (f/v)

Interactions
Sword Stand:
  • "Draw Sword" - Your sim will walk to the stand and pick the sword up. The texture on the stand will change to make it look like the sword has been taken out. (NOTE: It will stay in your sim's hand until you use the "Put Away" interaction on the stand, or the "Drop" interaction on the sword.)
  • "Put Away" - Your Sim will walk to the stand and put the sword away. The texture on the stand will change to make it look like the sword has been put back.
  • "View" - Just the same as the normal maxis "View" interaction.

Sword:
  • "Pick Up" - The sim will walk over to the sword and pick it up. If the sword isn't in the hand of the sim, this option will appear.
  • "Drop" - The sim will drop the sword on the ground. This option will only appear when the sword is in the hand.
  • "Demonstrate Skills" - Your sim will swing the sword around, aswell as do some kicks and punches. After the routine is finished, they bow.This option will only appear when the sword is in the hand. See the Update area, for an update on this interaction.
  • "Fight a Sim" - Both the Sim with the sword and the selected sim will fight. They will stab, punch, kick and slash each other. Once they have finished, your sims fun will go up by a quarter.This option will only appear when the sword is in the hand.
  • "Commit Suicide" - The Sim will perform a Custom animation (it may not actually go into the sim) where they will put the sword into them. They will throw up, then die.This option will only appear when the sword is in the hand.
  • "Kill a Sim" - The sims selected will do exactly the same as the "Fight a Sim" interaction, but the sim who was selected, will die. It has a custom animation, but is a little off from stabbing the sim.This option will only appear when the sword is in the hand.


Known Issues:
  • "Sword Placement in hand" - Sometimes, if something happens to the sim, the sword is moved out further from the hand. To fix this, you can either delete the sword from Buy mode, or put the sword back in the stand, then pull it out again.
  • "Strange Pose" - Sometimes, when your sim commit's suicide, the sim may be stuck in a pose next to the stand. To fix this, you can either let the sim die by the grim reaper, or save them from the reaper.
  • "Jump Bug" - You may experience a bug with the sword or stand, where the sim may teleport from one place to another then instantly back. Currently i dont know what is causing it, so i can't fix it.


Game Compatability:
These objects, require atleast 1 expansion pack for the sword to go in the hand. It does not matter which expansion you have.
They will also not replace any of your game files.
The stand can be found under Miscellanious/ Miscellanious.
The animations only work for adult.

Jasana_BugBreeder: For showing me how to make it show where it is correctly linking.
Echo: The biggest thanks would have to go her, she has been helping me with alot for this sword, without her, it wouldn't even be half finished. She helped with with making the sword stay in the hand after the interaction was finished. She corrected some of the codes i did which were wrong. She helped me with the commit suicide interaction, by telling me how to set it up. She also taught me the importance of Guardian bhav's. She also helped me majorly with the Kill a Sim interaction.
Smonaff: For fixing the Kill a Sim interaction for me, I wouldn't have been able to fix it. Also thank you for telling me how to make the Fight a Sim function work with the Kill a Sim interaction.

Pretty dang irreplacibly cool.
*Thumbs up*
I'm hanging onto it until I get an expansion. >.<
I was wondering if just one of the items packs would make it plausible for me to use the sword? Or if not.
And why exsactly can't it work with a non-expansion?

First off, both sims dont need a sword in the hand, only the one interacting with the other sim. And the boolprop thing is a way to tell if there is an error, make sure to turn it off if you are using the sword. It should work with uni, because the death by hunger came with the original. Try to turn off boolprop, and with only the sim making the interaction with a sword in the hand.

Ok I have tried that and it still doesn't work. I have to take off ALL my mods atm. So I will be re-downloading. If it happens I guess I won't use it. I will be getting another EP (Nightlife) sometime today or tomorrow so I will be having to change some things up. Thank you I think it's a GREAT item!

silenthill_addict, if it is in the sim's right hand, just put it back in the stand and draw it again, but if it is the left, do the same thing a few times until it is in the right one.

anakins88, try it when you have installed nightlife.

Adama18, It builds up bodyskill points whenever you sim does "Demonstrate Skills", so it will eventually make them fit.

That's good to know. Now if we can get sims to stop waving before they piss themselves and their death animation. O well it's a fun mod.

sgtlion, Sorry, certain things in the sword were only introduced in the expansions, such as the wrist slots. So I wouldnt be able to make one for no eps.

I can't get my sims to pick the sword up, what am I doing wrong? :]
I have all the EPs, and everything, so I was just wondering if there's something I can do to make it work, cause this is kickass! :]

I've downloaded it 5 times. ^_^;
I feel so stupid, is it because I have seasons installed? Or Pets?

Ok, if I ask like this -
How do you get the sims to pick up the sword? Do you just click on the swordstand?

*EDIT* I'm sorry to bombard you with my annoying blabb. It just won't work...Oh, well. It sure is a hell of a download for those it does work for, though!
