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.

That was the most productive "hiatus" in history . I'm a lot happier with all this stuff. And there is quite a bit of it.

These are just some boots and gloves (kinda - see notes) for your sim. Some were made with specific characters in mind, and some I felt like making. I did color them all to match the character modeling them, but that doesn't mean they really go with that character. For example, Batman has spikey gloves, but I don't think he has spikey boots. I just thought the spikes were cool, so I made them in boot form. The bunched cuffs would also probably make nifty wrist thingies for the guys from Dragonball Z, now that I think about it.

The Pirate Boot Cuffs are modified from Maxis's pirate outfits, and the Warrior Boots are modified from Maxis's hidden female warrior outfit. Everything else was created by me.

Notes:
The files that say "Boots" are full boots that will totally cover your sim's foot. The files that say "BootCuff" are cuffs that fit on the leg, and the files that just say "Cuff" are cuffs that fit on the arm. For the cuffs, you have to color the sim's outfit, legs or hands, to give the illusion of a glove or boot. It was too hard to make them all full boots and gloves, and they ended up looking bad. I think we actually talked about this in my computer architecture class. "Good design requires good compromise."

There are two versions of the Warrior Boots. The one that says "WarriorBoots" is for males and females, ages teen-adult, and is flat. The one that says "WarriorHeels" is only for adult females, and is designed to specifically fit Particleman's "Wonder Bra" Heels mesh. If you use the Heels version without a heeled body mesh, it'll bleed through the bottom.

I also uploaded special meshes to fit Marvine & BeosBoxBoy's Bodybuilder mesh if the regular one wouldn't, as that's used a lot as well. Those meshes are only for adult males.

All meshes except the Bodybuilder and Warrior are for males and females, child-adult. You can wear them with other accessories, but you can't wear more than one glove at a time or more than one boot at a time. These will only appear with everyday, workout, and formal outfits. I thought about it, and it seemed silly to keep boots on when you're swimming and such. If your hero sim swims in his uniform, well, he'll just have to make do. I reuploaded my V-Shaped Boots and Spike Cuffs from my last post to reflect this change, and to hopefully fix an issue with bleeding through on the V-Shaped Boots.

I labeled the screenshots so you'll know which is which. I also borrowed SynapticSim's screenshot of the V-Shaped boots, because his are way better than mine. I don't think he'll mind. You rock, Syn! I didn't recolor the outfits to reflect the accessories, so that looks kind of funny, but the important thing is the shape.

Recolor at will, and let me know if there are major issues with any of them.

Oh this is great! I was thinking of re-doing the Rogue skin on my site and this would work great with it. Nice to have a fellow comic fan on here making meshes for all of us.

I'm not able to get them to show in my Bodyshop or in my game, and I really appreciate your work, but am I doing something wrong? I unzip them then i copy the rar files to the Sims 2 Downloads folder but still no luck. If I've messed up or if you have an answer, please help me.

I've been working on a Barbarian sim using the body builder mesh,
and these are perfect.

The only problem is I need to enable both the bunched boot and wrist cuffs.
Any plans and making them able to work together?

It's already set up so you can wear any glove with any boot. You just can't wear two gloves or two boots together.

Come hang out with me and SynapticSim at The Lair
