This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Finals are coming up, and final projects, and my mother's birthday, and Thanksgiving a few times over, so my meshing will probably by greatly slowed. Plus my next project is another multiple-item pack, and I'm taking a lot of time trying to get it right. But I think everyone will like it when I'm done :D.

So, in the mean time, I'm going to recolor some of my meshes. That doesn't take long, and people ask for recolors in every thread. So if you have any requests, let me know. I'm only recoloring my meshes though. I'm hardly a coloring expert.

First up: my superhero cape. Get the mesh here: And no, the mesh isn't included in this download. It might be silly, but I like just being able to check the original thread and seeing how many people have downloaded it. Of course, if you have the mesh already, you don't need to redownload it.

I included at least one shade of every color I could think of (and one my little sister thought of). I'm not sure what some of these colors would be used for, but what the heck, right?

*sees the green one and starts getting ideas for LOTR characters* These are good! I never thought I had any use for a cape, but with some of these colours, now I do! So thank you! :D
(also, the blue and white ones finish off the wedding outfits for two of my fantasy characters... thanks so much!)

Love these capes, want them all, but wow it takes soooo long to add each one by itself to the game, please consider adding an 'all colors' file with all the recolors in one rar download, for the hi-speeders.

Hi first off I wanna say I love you for all the wonderful superhero paraphernalia you've brought into the sims world (especially the capes ) and these recolours are such a time saver, but I'm having difficulty making the cape alpha editable... I swear I'm probably missing something, it's just my changes to the material definitions seem to be having no effect and so I was wondering if thats something that I just have to resign myself to with this mesh?

Many thanks ( seriously I have a comicbook simsverse that would be pretty sorry if not for the work you do :D)

Love your stuff GeneralZoi. And your generous policy too! You're really cool. Thanks.
