Hello all,

The second pack is finally here; this time of a variety of cockatoos. Cockatoos tend to be cuddly, destructive, and LOUD. I try to keep my recolors as accurate to the real species as possible, but due to the restraints of how the textures are set up, this isn't always possible. I also did a bit more of my own texturing this time, instead of just changing the hues around.

Species included in this pack are as follows:

Moluccan: A little less active than most, but still prone to moments of hyperactivity. Alternatively known as the 'Salmon Crested' due to their noticeable orange-pink crests.
Rose-Breasted Galah: A bit smaller than most 'toos, and more independent. These guys are common as pigeons in their native Australia. They're primarily pink and dark grey, with a short, dense crest.
Black Palm: The largest of the cockatoos. Known for their striking appearance, defined by sleek near-black plumage and bright red bare patch on the face.
Mitchell's: Generally regarded as the most beautiful cockatoo, these parrots are primarily pink and white with a bright red and yellow crest.


My Guidelines:

-Feel free to recolour my recolours... Just link back to this page.
-Do NOT upload my creations on the Exchange or pay sites.
-You may use my creations in pictures, stories, etc.
-Please give credit where credit is due.

Thank you!

Gorgeous Birds. Better than the lot of birds that the game automates

Yes, but I forgot that I already had it. Suddenly I forgot everything I remembered I had forgotten earlier, and remembered the things I forgot I remembered.

Stunning! I love cockatoos... Even though galahs are everywhere here... that said, I miss seeing sulphur-cresteds when I lived on the other side of Australia.

They look fantastic but in one think you wrong, a Galah is a Galah even here in Australia, never heard anyone call them Pigeon, there's even an old timer's story about Galah's, but keep up the good work I like it and thanks for sharing

Hey, this is pretty cool mod, would it be too muhc to ask if you could make a Cockatiel pack? I love Cockatiels and had hoped it would be added with Sims 2 Pets only to find out it wasn't.

Parrots especially high-energy, smart birds like 'toos are WAY more work then any dog or cat. In the game they are barely more then glorified, taking decorations. Oh well. The work might be one reason Maxis put more effort into dogs and cats - it would be a LOT of coding to do. This download rocks though, it's nice to have realistic 'toos for once. I had Pets but I gave it away because I got bored with just dogs and cats. Now, if they had included parrots...

These are simply astounding! Beautiful, beautiful work you did on these lovely Cockatoo's! Gives a little more variety as far as birds go to the game. Although maybe that's just me. Anyway, with dogs and cats getting the most love in the Sims universe it's nice to have this download. Adds a little extra creative flare to the gameplay. :D
