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!

Though my Dad refuses to play that game, he'd be happy seeing those Parrots, 'cause they're his favourite animals (my ones are Fishes! :D)

Use this cheat = Moveobjects on
then zoom inside the cage and in build mode click the BIRD and you can take it out of the cage (I think)

Love these ideas and I have a good idea for you. Instead of just having real bird species you should try to make fantasy birds for magic and fictional sims. I would do it myself but i don't know how to create stuff other than bodyshop and homemaker tools and I havent downloaded any other programs. Ideas could be Pheonix, Chocobo, Sunset Glubber, Ikran (Flying Banshees from the movie AVATAR), Dragon Babies, etc. Just an idea though you dont have to feel obligated to make this type of mod.

These are some of the most beautiful pieces of work I have ever seen! I used to work with and learn about parrots, and your ability to make even their eyes sparkle as they do in real life. Thank you!!
