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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
It's a forked tail! Yay! I think I'm delirious! This was based on Atreya's wonderful cat tail mesh. Check out her whole animal kindom at http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?p=798101

The changes: the fork at the end, naturally. The tail also tapers at the end for children-elder. I meant for it to taper for toddlers too, but apparently it didn't work like how I thought it would. I based the tail specifically on Nightcrawler from the X-Men, but it can still be used for any of your forked-tailed sims.

The tail fits on toddler-elder, male and female, and can be worn with other meshes, but not Atreya's other tail meshes (I believe). It will stay on all the time. And look! My screenshots actually have a background this time!

This is purely a creator note, but while examining Atreya's MESH file I figured out how to combine all my mesh files for different ages and genders into one, which will drastically cut down on the clutter in everyone's downloads folder for my future posts. Thanks Atreya!

Recolor at will, and no paysites.

It's funny. I was trying to think what this kind of tail was called, and I thought it was forked, but then I remembered a snake's tongue is forked. So forked tongues split apart at the end, but forked tails come together in a point at the end. Weird.

You just made my day!I've been wanting to make a sim of Nightcrawler for so long but avoided doing so because of the lack of a proper tail-call me anal if you will but it bothers me to have him lacking tail.I love that it goes through all ages as well.

Ooh, neat. I likes it!

I've been wanting to make a Nightcrawler sim... Been muddling around with meshing myself, and I'm wondering if it wouldn't be possible to create his feet as a clothing mesh... I've got a species in a story I've been working on that also have a similar setup... Tail, funky feet (but with four toes with big claws, not two), etc., and I'm thinking if I could get a Nightcrawler mesh going, I could easily modify it for my Kadiosh.

Oooh, off to play with Milkshape.

that tail looks really good.
I had nightcrawler in sims 1 but I never really considered creating him for sims 2, until now.

Cool, how about bat wings that stay on all the time and can be combined with tails, ears, etc.

There are some bat-type wings here: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=62680. I don't know the details, like if they stay on all the time or with other accessories.

wow will you recolor for your purple skin? this tail is just what my Trance Gemini sim needed, i tried recoloring SaraC's tail but the colour didn't match.

I can't get this tail to show up in my game. I searched through all my accessories for both men and women multiple times, but couldn't find it. Both the mesh and the color package are in my downloads directory. The only thing I can think of (though I am by no means an expert) is that maybe there is some sort of a conflict with the tail mesh you cloned???

I hope this can be solved, because I love the mesh and would like very much to use it.

I'm afraid I am still very new to this stuff, and I honestly don't know what it could be. No one else has mentioned this problem. Both the forked tail and Atreya's cat tail work fine for me. Here's a way to test if it's there though: Rename your Downloads and Saved Sims folder to be "!Downloads" and "!Saved Sims" (or insert the punction/character of your choosing). Then make a new folder named Downloads and install my mesh in there. Open Body Shop, and if it's there, it should be your only custom glasses. If it's not, well, then it's definitely not. Delete the new Downloads folder and restore your original Downloads and Saved Sims folders.

Also, what expansions do you have? That shouldn't affect it, but it's somewhere to start.

#22 Old 26th Nov 2005 at 9:28 AM
OK. GeneralZoi, I followed your advice and loaded BodyShop with a reduced "Downloads" directory. It magically appeared (i.e., I found it finally) :salute:

Thanks for the advice and the mesh. Now that I have embarrased myself, I will create those recolors I promised...

Generalzoi, I salute you! Fabulous work, as always.

*faerie smooches*

Oh, for the record, this sort of tail isn't "forked", it's "barbed". Just so you know.

Really? I wasn't sure. I asked SynapticSim about it. He lied to me! Just kidding. It's a bit late to change the name, but thanks for the info.
