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.

Hello Everyone!!

After six months of work, I have finally finished the sword. This is my first hacked object, that I have ever made. In the .rar file, there is 3 files, 1 is the sword, 1 is the stand and the last one is a social object. You need all 3 objects in your game for everything to work properly.

17-1-2007 : After some people requesting it, I made it so the "Demonstrate Skills" interaction now adds body skillpoints. Your sim will gain them alot faster than usual, 1 and a bit skill points each time they do the interaction. See post in thread for a picture of it. POST

Mesh Details:

Sword Stand: 1856/1995 (f/v)
Sword: 1562/1302 (f/v)

Sword Stand:
  • "Draw Sword" - Your sim will walk to the stand and pick the sword up. The texture on the stand will change to make it look like the sword has been taken out. (NOTE: It will stay in your sim's hand until you use the "Put Away" interaction on the stand, or the "Drop" interaction on the sword.)
  • "Put Away" - Your Sim will walk to the stand and put the sword away. The texture on the stand will change to make it look like the sword has been put back.
  • "View" - Just the same as the normal maxis "View" interaction.

  • "Pick Up" - The sim will walk over to the sword and pick it up. If the sword isn't in the hand of the sim, this option will appear.
  • "Drop" - The sim will drop the sword on the ground. This option will only appear when the sword is in the hand.
  • "Demonstrate Skills" - Your sim will swing the sword around, aswell as do some kicks and punches. After the routine is finished, they bow.This option will only appear when the sword is in the hand. See the Update area, for an update on this interaction.
  • "Fight a Sim" - Both the Sim with the sword and the selected sim will fight. They will stab, punch, kick and slash each other. Once they have finished, your sims fun will go up by a quarter.This option will only appear when the sword is in the hand.
  • "Commit Suicide" - The Sim will perform a Custom animation (it may not actually go into the sim) where they will put the sword into them. They will throw up, then die.This option will only appear when the sword is in the hand.
  • "Kill a Sim" - The sims selected will do exactly the same as the "Fight a Sim" interaction, but the sim who was selected, will die. It has a custom animation, but is a little off from stabbing the sim.This option will only appear when the sword is in the hand.

Known Issues:
  • "Sword Placement in hand" - Sometimes, if something happens to the sim, the sword is moved out further from the hand. To fix this, you can either delete the sword from Buy mode, or put the sword back in the stand, then pull it out again.
  • "Strange Pose" - Sometimes, when your sim commit's suicide, the sim may be stuck in a pose next to the stand. To fix this, you can either let the sim die by the grim reaper, or save them from the reaper.
  • "Jump Bug" - You may experience a bug with the sword or stand, where the sim may teleport from one place to another then instantly back. Currently i dont know what is causing it, so i can't fix it.

Game Compatability:
These objects, require atleast 1 expansion pack for the sword to go in the hand. It does not matter which expansion you have.
They will also not replace any of your game files.
The stand can be found under Miscellanious/ Miscellanious.
The animations only work for adult.


Katy_76: Katy first started helping me to learn some of the basics of coding. She was the one who started me off at this, She was so nice and even sent pictures on how to do. She is one of the many great talents, who spared time to help me. So thank you katy !!
Cokenasmile: Coke helped me with checking error's in the sword, she also tought me how to make custom animations that dont overwrite the maxis ones.
HystericalParoxysm: HP helped me with finding much needed and useful animations. And for offering advice on how to make a sim die.
Hunter240X He also found some great animations that i could use.
Jasana_BugBreeder: For showing me how to make it show where it is correctly linking.
Echo: The biggest thanks would have to go her, she has been helping me with alot for this sword, without her, it wouldn't even be half finished. She helped with with making the sword stay in the hand after the interaction was finished. She corrected some of the codes i did which were wrong. She helped me with the commit suicide interaction, by telling me how to set it up. She also taught me the importance of Guardian bhav's. She also helped me majorly with the Kill a Sim interaction.
Smonaff: For fixing the Kill a Sim interaction for me, I wouldn't have been able to fix it. Also thank you for telling me how to make the Fight a Sim function work with the Kill a Sim interaction.

All these people took the time to help me when i was struggling, so a big thank you to you all !! :D

This is really great! I'm so glad to have an activity for my medieval sims (shaklin's lightsaber fight just didn't look right in the castle courtyard )

I'm having a problem similar to the one that Pille23 described, though. My sim does his teleporting when he sits down to second he's sitting at the table, the next he's in the yard beside the sword stand.

Heh, I just used this to kill.
This'll teach that "reviewer" to intentionally diss my business!
Oh, and I also have Pille23's teleporting glitch, too.

This was way fun to use. Great job!
I did experience the teleport bug you mentioned though but it kept happening (After I deleted the sword rack) Whenever my sim tried to dance with another Sim in that room they zipped all over the place.
Probably an interaction with some other mod..
Anyway I thought I would mention it.

This is great. Finally I can create the sim I always wanted to and have her equipped with a useable sword. Maya - Harlequin thanks you (My sim) Kudos....

Excellent job! I'm really impressed with the thought that must have gone into this. I'm also happy you did your own work on this and did not base it on pillow fight. I had the lightsaber and found that you can loss a sim or two before realizing you have a bored sim that's starting lightsaber pillow fights.

Being both a ren performer that does swordfighting in armor and having a self-sim, this will be a great addition to my game. Thank you for sharing it.

this is a very cool item, but when I tried to download it, it said file was corrupt? did I do something wrong. can someone Please tell me how to fix it if it is on my computer. Thanks
#138 Old 18th Jan 2007 at 11:47 PM
Try downloading it again. Sometimes, especially when the server is busy, the download terminates before it is finished resulting in an incomplete file. I have downloaded it myself and can assure you it works.

I cant believe this has actually been done. I have been needing something like this forever especially for some of the sim videos I am hoping to make.

If your looking to make a sword in a stone you can use this full permission granted.

I would give it a go but my skills stop at mesh and textures.

You cannot stop the REVOLUTION.

I am thoroughly impressed- I've been wanting something like this for ages. It is quite an ambitious first project! I cant wait to try it.

-Lanf- I have the same problem with the sword disappearing and I have the Holiday version of Sims2 so maybe it does have something to do with it. GRRRR. And I was so excited about using this.
