Thank you sooo much! I've been wanting these for a long time.

This is off topic but, does anybody know how to post clothing recolors? Thanks in advance!

Wow, this looks great! Any chance of getting a "fox mask" for my sims in the near future? That'd really make my day here. Great job again. :D

Great, just great! I'll give it a try with the original Sims Game without expansion packs!

I second the request for Bunny Ears and Bunny Tails!

I'm glad you like it.
Yes, they stay on for all outfits, including undies, swimwear and pyjama's.
I wasn't really taking request so i won't make any promisses about bunny ears and tails yet but i'll think about it.

about the recoloring, you will see there are three zones in the bmp. the right one isthe colour used for teen and adult males, the middle one for teen and adult females and the right one is used for children and toddlers. That way you can give females a slightly different colour if you want. Or make a lighter version for toddlers and children. I mainly did that to match a skin I made for my sims ages ago.

That was exactly what I needed, thanks
I'm always on the search for weird stuff like tails, ears, weird colors...I especially search longer elf ears and all kind of animal ears, does someone know where to get this?

How would I recolour it so the tail and ears are black? I have a character that is based off of a story and he has wolf ears and tail, and they're black, since his hair is black. (if you know of any wolf tails that look as good as this, please let me know)

I have made a black recolour of the fox tail, with or without ears.
I have also made many recolours to match the skins from http://genensims.com
They have been posted and hopefully will be approved soon!
EDIT: yes, they are now available

Thank you Atreya for your fantastic fox tail!

Many many thanks. I know that I was not the only person who wanted a new tail mesh. I am writing a novel with humanoid animal characters and I like to try and create chracters from the novel on Sims 2. The cat tail was nice, but could only work for certain characters. With this tail, I will be able to create many more characters. I have already made recolors for a wolf character, a raccoon character, and a coyote character. And this tail will work better than the cat tail for the novel's main character, who is a mongoose, and an otter character, as well. One thing that is a bit annoying. It is so great that this tail combines with other accessories and is always on, I am starting to really want the cat tail to do the same thing. Any chance a new version of the cat tail could be released that does those things?

P.S. As someone suggested, a bunny tail would be a great idea for a future mesh. It could work for rabbits, deer, and bear characters (as well as others, probably).

I have never posted anything before. Maybe I will. For skin editing I use a combination of Body Shop and ArcSoft PhotoStudio 2000SE (Though for most of what I do, Paint would work fine). Genensims.com has the best fur skins, which I use as a base for all tail recolors, etc. I choose to create a new project or whatever in bodyshop. I will then export the genensims skin I want the tail to match. Also, the first time, I export the tail as well. Then I enter PhotoStudio and open one of the body images from the skin project (I usually use the regular male body image). Then I open the image file for the tail. I copy a section of the body image and paste it onto the tail image, so the entire tail image is filled. I then save the new tail image over the old one. I then spraypaint the tail image completely white and save it over the alpha. Finally, I load the tail project in BodyShop and import it (under a fitting name). This may not be the most efficient method, but I have used it for many recolors for both the cat and fox tail.

Now for specifics on the raccoon: I used the Brown-Tipped Gray Tabby Skin from genensims but the Gray Tabby would work just as well (if not better). Copy a section of the body image that is just the gray with slight stripes and paste it onto the tail image. What I used next was PhotoStudio's darken tool to create a section of black at the bottom of the tail image (creating the tail's black tip). Since the tabby pattern already has slight stripes, you should not need to use darken anywhere else. I also created a variation of the body image by altering the face (using the darken/lighten tool to "draw" a raccoon mask for the face).

Hope I could be of help. Maybe I will upload my file for it later (I have no experience loading to this site, though, and there looks like there are a bunch of rules and regulations for posting. I could put them on a page and give you a link, if we are allowed to post links here). I also have a custom costume paint nose for the furry skins if anyone is interested. By the way, if I package a sim I make in BodyShop with custom objects, will those custom objects be included in the package file?

Kubwakanu - that's basically what I did to create the tails I made from the Genesims.com skins. I have made and posted most of the solid colours. I will make the patterned colours, like tabby, tomorrow and post them. I will try and make a Raccoon tail using your preferences.

The Genesims.com furry skins are HUGE (13 MB or so) and so I doubt I'll bother editing the skins. But, I'd love to see your Raccoon skin too.

I know there was some interest in the raccoon sim I made, but I was not too sure about the details of posting everything on this site. Well, I've got some great news (and it has absolutely nothing to do with car insurance). I uploaded him to thesims2.com exchange (my first exchange upload and it will probably not be my last). Not only does he come with the raccoon tail and raccoon skin (credit to genensims and Atreya), he also comes with my furry nose costume makeup. I could have (and in retrospect should have) used the tail ear combo, but he looks fine with the normal pointy ears. His name is Geon Jardin. (I recommend you read his description before downloading).

P.S. I just uploaded another character, Jaashu Sarino

Sweeeet!! I don't have meshing skills, or the time to learn them, so I can't make this stuff myself. Thank you so much! I'll figure out how to recolor accessories so I can recolor the mesh as I make more skins.

Love all of it!
