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 is of course always a pleasure to offer something really wild to the community. And so, I present to you; New Twi’lek Headtails as requested by quite of few of you actually. Please allow me apologize for the wait, but I really had to take my time on this one. Allot of hard work went into making these meshes. I’m still kinda new at meshing/skinning. So I had to learn as I went along.

There are four variations of lekku that you can choose from if not all of them. This is of course for the purpose of diversity; I don’t always like to see the same look on every Sim. All variations are available to all ages ~ from toddler up to elder. So now you can make some *real* exotic Twi’leks for your game, or upload your re-colors.

And as such, what would an exotic Twi’lek be without her head crown? Maybe she would feel incomplete, “yes?” or maybe have a complex? Well, even though I really didn’t think I was gonna do it, I did ~ I created two head crowns that you can download & re-color for your own mods.

Keep checking this thread because I have a couple more crowns in the works.


Please feel free to re-color these meshes and add them to your newly uploaded Twi'lek(s) but please link back to this post so others can download the original mesh. In other words, please don't add these meshes along with your uploaded Sims.Also, please don't include any Sims that are using this/these mesh(es) in uploaded lot’s to any free site or pay site. Thank you.

Mesh Info:

All Lekku meshes here are “Skin tone” compliant. They will change to whatever color skin you select, be it maxis or user created and yes, that includes robot skins too.

Lekku Thin 1_A: This style of tails is based on Star Wars Episodes I, II, & III
The Twi’leks had thin tails as I’ve noticed. The tails on variation “1_A” hang down the back.
There are four meshes for variation 1_A:
Adult/Elder mesh: (Faces=350, Vertices=267)
Teen mesh: (faces=350, Vertices=267)
Child mesh: (faces=350, Vertices=281)
Toddler mesh: (faces=283, Vertices=323)
Movement of these tails flex with the body.

Lekku Thin 1_B: The Right tail wraps around the neck as suggested by a few while the left hangs down the back.
There are four meshes for variation 1_B:
Adult/Elder mesh (Faces=390, Vertices=431)
Teen mesh (Faces=392, Vertices=314)
Child Mesh (Faces=392, Vertices=437)
Toddler Mesh (Faces=283, Vertices=323)
Movement of these tails flex with the body.

Lekku Thick 1_A: This style of tails is based on the classic Star Wars “Return of the Jedi” It seemed that the tails were allot thicker from what I’ve noticed. One should never dance too close to a Twi’lek with tails like these, lest they get whipped pretty hard by them!!!
These tails hang down back.
There are four meshes for Lekku Thick 1_A:
Adult/Elder mesh (faces=350, Vertices=390)
Teen mesh (faces=350, Vertices=287)
Child mesh (faces=350, Vertices=239)
Toddler mesh (faces=350, Vertices=290)
Movement of these tails flex with the body.

Lekku Thick 1_B: As you know, some Twi’leks prefer to rest their tails over their front, especially during a photo opportunity, yes?
There are four meshes for Lekku Thick 1_B:
Adult/Elder mesh (faces=350, Vertices=273)
Teen mesh (faces=350, Vertices=273)
Child mesh (faces=350, Vertices=339)
Toddler mesh (faces=287, Vertices=290)
Movement of these tails flex with the body.


Twi’lek Dancer’s Crown Classic: This crown has just the *classic* Star Wars feel to it. You agree? It must be the ear caps.
There are two sizes of the Twi’lek Dancer’s Crown Classic:
Adult/Elder mesh (Faces=178, Vertices=130)
Teen mesh (faces=246, Vertices=188)

Twi’lek Dancer’s Crown Variant: This crown is based on Episode I. The Twi’leks on Tatooine wore what looked like a variation of the classic style with a larger crown jewel and without the caps leaving the ears partially exposed.
There are three sizes of the variant:
Adult/Elder mesh (Faces=348, Vertices=296)
Teen mesh (Faces=384, Vertices=333)
Child mesh (Faces=348, Vertices=296)

All meshes were created in Autodesk 3D Studio Max 8
All texture UV bitmaps were created in Photoshop.
All meshes, and UV bitmaps were imported/exported and incorporated into The Sims 2 using SimPE.

Skin tones that you see in the pics are not included.

As I said before: keep checking this thread for more crowns coming in the near future.
Have fun with these meshes. I can’t wait to see what you guys do with the re-colors, that’ll be interesting indeed!!

N’Joy.

I've wanted these for soooo long, any chance you can make Zabrak horns and hair patterns?

Preferably separate. The hair then the horns as an accessory.

I deleted all my older twiliks because they did not have any mesh for the teens or toddlers. thanks

Nope that's it. You've got it ~ you've got the mesh package in the Sims2 Downloads folder where it belongs. Now you can either start the game or open body shop where you'll find the tail(s) in the custom section of hair and the head crowns in accessories under glasses.

Now with the folder that says recolor_sample, with all the .bmp files? Those are just there if you wanna do some recolors using bodyshop, & photshop, or Paintshop Pro. I put those there as samples to help you get started on your projects for the public or personal use. Otherwise just trash them.

Might I also suggest when creating a Sim using the lekku? You may or may not need to shrink the human ears down so they won't peak through the Twi'lek ears. And also, if you already have a sim created from some other time, and the ears do in fact peak? Then I would go into bodyshop and clone her, and adjust the ears down. So now you'd have a twi'lek version.

Hey did you get unconfused? Confusion is awful, I know this better than anyone. Makes you wanna split your self and go two ways.

Thanks so much!! This is great stuff - it looks so authentic!!!

Is there any chance you could make it so that they move a bit when your Sims move, like in some hair meshes? Right now they're static - they're still wonderful, but if they could sway a bit it would be completely real.

Thank you! I really loooooove Twi'leks, they're my favorites since ever! I love their style, grace, ando of course "lekkus" ;D.
Could I ask you to do males meshes, too? Would be great a Twi'lek family in the neighborhood.

Thanks a bunch! These are most likely the best Twi'lek Lekku out there! I agree with the Idea to make Lekku for our male sims. My families look odd with only the girls having the head tails... Also, if you have any free time... Would you consider making a sim version of Aayla Secura (From EU and Ep. II/III)? Thanks again for the great Twi'lek stuff.


EDIT: I tried to re-download the crowns because they weren't working with my Bodyshop... Something about the Textures... But now it won't let me redownload them... With either Q-express or manual download.... Anyone else having this problem?

Ok i'm gonna have to fix them and then re-upload them. I think the problem is with the crown jewel, The game thinks it's a pare of glasses and the jewel is the lens, and since there's actually *not* suppose to be a texture file for the "lens" it's relying on the ~frame texture, which it's not really supposed to do. So there's a texture miss-match going on. They may work on some computers, but maybe not all.

Please send me a private message if you're having an issue with these crowns. In the mean time all get to work on merging the whole mesh together so that the crown can be commented as the "Frame"

Yeah, some lekkus would be great for the guys. These are really awesome though!


This may sound like a stupid question, but you included recolor samples for the accessories, how can I get those into my game? I've been trying to search all over this site for a tutorial of some sort and I can't seem to find it.

Nice! Also, I just figured out that, if I hit all of the little keys (like, "Internet", "Search", "Calculator", ect.) at the top of my keyboard, then it makes a creepy beeping sound... Especially creepy if I don't know what the heck caused it. xD Anyways, great download, and somehow, the beeping noises made it all the more entertaining.

#48 Old 30th Jan 2007 at 5:34 AM
Love how they automatically change with the skintone. Wish I knew how that was done. I'd like to see if there's someway to apply that to accessories such as tails, elf ears and horns. Get tired of having to make a new color for every skintone.

Anywho great job. Will be much used.
