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.
This project has been in the works for a while, but I kept getting distracted.

And a BIG thanks to Atreya for letting me in on the secret to toddler accessories.

Here's a hooded cloak for your fantasy, mystic, superhero, or whatever sims. There are actually three meshes: two hoods and the cloak. There's a hood with a regular rounded opening, and a hood with a peak at the top. Combine the hoods with face paint to get a shadowed effect. The cloak is alpha editable. You can wear the cloak with a hood, or you can wear both pieces seperately. Also, the hoods should fit over most of the Maxis default hairstyles.

I wanted to give you guys some choices on the color and show the alpha editing to you, but I'm having issues with just about every piece of software I have that's related to The Sims 2, so the only color I have right now is red. That's also the reason for the lazy screenshots. The hoods are for toddler-elder, male and female, and the cloak is for child-elder, male and female. I would have loved to have a little superbaby roaming around my household, but the animations on the cloak don't work well with crawling, or toddling for that matter. Both parts can be worn with other accessories, but both hoods cannot be worn together.

Disclaimer: Recolor at will, but do not redistribute the mesh without permission. All recolors should link back to this post. Do not upload to any paysites, and do not upload to the Exchange. I know they're pretty much nonexistant, but feel free to use any color I include with my meshes in your own creations, as long as credit is given and a link to the mesh is provided. All content is by Maxis or me.

Grrrr....Just like the Wolverine mask, it won't show up! ::cries:: Must be a problem on my end....be better if I knew how to fix it.... And Daysies posting on custom content didn't help. Anyone?

Edit: Ok, I redownloaded them and they work now. They didn't before when I did the same thing, but I dunno. Maybe because I installed a Phantasm Skin that was made by someone else using these meshes? Maybe cuz it was in a Sims2Pack? Quick! Somebody make a skin using the Wolverine mask in a SIMS2PACK! LOL. Serously....I don't know why it works now...

I understand that my meshes come with a color you may not want. However, it seems silly to me to have two different archives, each with only one file. If you only want to install the mesh, only put the file that begins with MESH in your Downloads folder.

Thanks... almost, but not quite exactly what i was looking for... **wry grin** though i am not sure whether what i am looking for is actually possible in the sims 2 engine...

ANy chance of a variant that does full coverage with hands at the sides? Clasp at the throat, open otherwise?

If I tried to do that one of two things would happen: Either the hands and arms would cut through the cloak whenever they moved, or the cloak would follow the hands and arms, covering them all the time. There's not, as far as I know, a way to make it cover the hands while they're at rest and move out of the way when they're moving.

So be it... **wry grin** I really learn to do this kinda thing... if for no other reason that it would make it easier to know what is doable.

It won't show up in my game!
I downloaded the regular hood and the black reclolors and I opened bodyshop and it isn't there!

I see a place for it in the glasses but it is just a head and when I click it nothing happens.

I'll try redownloading it...

I highly doubt this is your fault but I want to see if you know whats going on or if anyone else has the same problem. This file keeps saving as a music file then I cant put it into my game. I can open it in itunes but this is all sorts of not helpful to me. Just if you have any clue can you let me know kay. This is a really beautiful creation and I've wanted something like this for a while. Good job.

I've never heard of anything like that, unless you've accidentally set the filetype (whether it's the .rar or .package you're having problems with) to be opened by your music player. Other than that, that's one of the most bizarre things I've heard.

I can't get the cloak to work for some reason... the hood will go on, but even when I take the hood off and put the cloak on by itself it won't work. Sorry, I'm a newb... any ideas? Thank you!

Great cloak! However, when I recolor the cloak for Superman, I got this result: The bodybuilder mesh pokes out of the cape and the \S/ logo seems to cave in.



So, mind if you adjust the cape to fit the bodybuilder and fix the mesh so the logo won't cave in?

Thanks!
