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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
It's a forked tail! Yay! I think I'm delirious! This was based on Atreya's wonderful cat tail mesh. Check out her whole animal kindom at

The changes: the fork at the end, naturally. The tail also tapers at the end for children-elder. I meant for it to taper for toddlers too, but apparently it didn't work like how I thought it would. I based the tail specifically on Nightcrawler from the X-Men, but it can still be used for any of your forked-tailed sims.

The tail fits on toddler-elder, male and female, and can be worn with other meshes, but not Atreya's other tail meshes (I believe). It will stay on all the time. And look! My screenshots actually have a background this time!

This is purely a creator note, but while examining Atreya's MESH file I figured out how to combine all my mesh files for different ages and genders into one, which will drastically cut down on the clutter in everyone's downloads folder for my future posts. Thanks Atreya!

Recolor at will, and no paysites.

It's funny. I was trying to think what this kind of tail was called, and I thought it was forked, but then I remembered a snake's tongue is forked. So forked tongues split apart at the end, but forked tails come together in a point at the end. Weird.
Accessory Type: Misc

No, it's not genetic, it's just an accessory.

Because it's not a Sims2Pack, all you need to do is put the files in your Downloads folder and it should work no matter the expansion, or lack thereof.

I think that the term for this type of tail is "spaded", but I'm not sure...just because it has...well...a spade on the end...

Can we recolor this or no? And THANK YOU! *tackles* I've been looking everywhere for one of these! Now I can have my own Nightcrawler! ^^

Default why its a fork!
instead of draging it out, basical it is cxalled a forked tail because it is mainly seen on the devil ( satin ) and he is often pictured ( in pop culture ) with a fork like spear ( very much like the greek god of the sea and storms ). the tail has the same pointed end as the devils fork so heance its a forked tail!!!
