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.

Alright, so I know I said I wouldn't.. But I went ahead and did it anyways. Here are the wings.. for cats!



*Important Info*

- This is a Default Replacement. It overrides the Body Fur Accessory! I have left the body fur intact, (meaning that the original body fur accessory will still show up), however, by using these wings you will no longer be able to create regular furry cats in CAS. Also, you will be unable to create non-furry winged cats.

- It is very important that you delete the Accessory.cache and Groups.cache files located in your My Documents/EA Games/The Sims 2 Directory before you add these wings to your Downloads folder, and also after you remove them. If you do not delete these files, there is a possibility that the meshes will explode in-game. If you do forget, and come accross an exploded mesh or error in-game, simply Exit, delete the cache files, and everything should be fixed once you re-enter the game.

- Any cats already in-game will not be affected, unless you change their appearance using a mirror. Likewise, any cats you have given wings will keep their wings unless updated via the mirror, even after you remove the default replacement package from your Downloads folder.



*How To Use*

These wings work in the exact same way as the body fur accessory. Simply create a cat in CAS, select the Fur Accessory option, and then click the icon of the body fur accessory. Your kitty should then sprout a pair of wings.


Like all fur accessories, these wings will take on whatever color you have selected as your cat's Base Color. So your kitty's wings can be any color that is available to you in-game. And, like all fur accessories, the wings can be passed down to your kitty's offspring.


Anyways, I've created these for those of you who really want winged kitties, (as I am unable at this point to convert them to non-defaults). But, as I mentioned previously, you can remove the package from your Downloads folder at any time, (as long as you remember to delete your cache files afterwards, just as a precaution), and any winged kitties you have in-game will remain.

So, I hope you enjoy!

These are beautiful wings, but I'm with nenyaa -- your cats are absolutely gorgeous!

I'm especially in love with the odd-footed Siamese; its tail is just phenomenal! I've been trying for a long time to make such full, floofy tails, but I don't think I've quite got the knack of it yet...

Any way you could upload that beauty?

is it possible to make this mesh for a collar so i don't lose the fuzzy fur option?

Could you do a default replacement with the fuzzy face? I like my fuzzy cats just fine, but I hardly use the fuzzy face option.

I looove these!



Me too! Me and my friend Rachel would always rent them at the library at school when we were younger lol. Thanx a lot! They're very cute! But could you make these as a collar accesery instead of long fur? I would like to be able to use longfur as well without wings... plus, if I want a short haired cat to have wings, I can't because its long fur... Thanx a lot thought these are very cute!
I also LOVE your cats that you used! How did you get the one's tail so fluffy?! Its so cute!!

00pZz... The meshes can explode? I wonder I never read it before.
Now I'll immediately delete the files I actually have to delete.

One more thing: I really like the wings!! Despite you can't create cats with the fur-accesoiry and without wings, but I don't really care because it looks beatiful anyway.
