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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.


Well met and welcome to the Magick Modder’s first set.

‘A Midsimmer Night's Dream’ is designed to take your sims back to a time before Elves and their magics left this world. A time of chivalry and courtly love. We’re bringing you a cartload of new meshed objects, clothes and hair, as well as some beautiful recolors.

You'll find a blend of history and fantasy here, for you to build your own Sim fantasy worlds with. We hope you enjoy these as much as we did making them.

The Magick Modders are: Helaene, Bettye, Lethe_s, SixStringSlim, Tiggerypum, and WhiteArchangel

Our thanks to everyone who contributed ideas, including LyricLee and Anniebonnie, and especially to Delphy and the staff.

All zips include a readme file with extra information and all content works in all versions of the game, unless stated otherwise. The objects in this set all have face counts that are comparable or well below their maxis originals. Necessary meshes are included with the downloads unless otherwise noted.

Recoloring is welcome. But you MUST CREATE YOUR OWN GRAPHICS. (As stated in most of the readme files)

Fare thee well, kind simmer!

The pageboys use the same mesh as for the TEEN outfit that's in the same message (which is why I didn't add it to Slim's package) the tig-mteen-tunicpants has the mesh (along with my 3 outfits). The one with the mesh is the last download in that set.

As for the rate of 'thanks' - it's just the case that many people do not click the thank you button. For one thing, they probably want to go test it in their game, and of course, they might not come back. Others don't realize what the button is for. I know I appreciate it when people click thanks on my work, but one can't get focused on that alone

I downloaded as much as I could tonight, and went into bodyshop. The clothing is soooo great. I am so amazed. My hubby looked over and he even commented on how realistic My sim looked. Thankyou so much, this is such a treat.

Oh my, thank you for the enormous amount of work that must have gone into this theme! For me, the timing of your release was perfect as I have just set up a medieval neighborhood in my game.

I do have a question, which I hope is not too stupid. I don't usually build because I accept that I am just not very good at it. However, with all your wonderful build items I thought I would give something simple a shot but have a question about the simple buttress. Why does it not function like a regular column and have to be placed against a wall? The flying buttress works like a regular column, so I wasn't sure if the simple one was working correctly or not. I dl'd the uni.zip for these items, in case that is info you need to answer my question.

Oh shoot, it just occured to me that the only one(simple butress) I tried before coming here to ask about this was the single story. I don't know if the 2 story version works differently. As mentioned, if this is an inexperienced builder question, please feel free to tell me to go find a tutorial!

I can't seem to install the Wizard Castle.Sims2Pack - whenever I double-click it, the installer tells me to double-click a Sims2Pack file. Is the file damaged, perhaps? I've downloaded it twice now, same problem both times. Waaa...I want a castle!

dolldrms,

that's not a stupid question at all don't worry
they do that cause I messed with the bhav's of the columns
I wanted the buttresses to pull down with the walls, so they wouldn't get in the way of playing
for that to work, I had to 'stick' them to the walls, it's only the simple one and two story buttresses,
the flying ones are regular columns

About the buttresses, there is something else to note, too.

A buttress is: A structure, usually brick or stone, built against a wall for support or reinforcement.

So they are supposed to be against the walls, they're not actually columns. And I appreciate that Lethe made them drop, so we can use them and still see our sims when the walls are down.

I had a problem while cleaning the wizard castle, it's fine but if you want to install it, it'd be better if you use clan installer, and I'll double-check in case I missed something.

about the sword, wands, etc.they're made by ROSE-SIMSTV here at ModtheSims2

Your explanation makes perfect sense to me, . I agree with Tig that it's nice for them to go down. I put one on either side of a front door and they look great!

I did discover a problem with the dungeon door. They work fine but I was redoing a regular house in another neighborhood and when I went to put the Maxis Valuewood Justa Door on a diagonal wall, it turned into the dungeon door. I sure hope that's an easy fix for you. I know you must have spent hours on these objects already and hope that a correction won't take much of your time!

I've had a problem with the installer since getting Nightlife where I had to set up a shortcut to the installer that came with nightlife (find in program files/ea games/sims 2 nightlife - or where ever you put it) on my desktop and I drag and drop each file onto it, and that worked for me. It might not work for you, but you can at least try! Hope that helped.

This set is amazingly detailed, and beautiful and the textures in the clothing etc are exceptional, thank you so very much.

I will now be keeping an eye out in the hope that someone might do a court jester style outfit, as any king worth his crown needs his Jester. :-)
