Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
My very first ever go at uploading a Sim. I know he has been done before but I thought I would have a go too.

The eyes and eyebrows are by me and are included as well as the re-colours of the hair and beard.

The hair is by Sims Connection http://www.simsconnection.com/
The beard is by Mandyscog http://<br /> http://www.modthesim...&highlight=jack
The clothing is by Barcelonista but not included http://<br /> http://www.modthesim...ghlight=aragorn
The wrinkles are by Agent420 at TSR but not included http://www.thesimsresource.com/index.php

Enjoy,
Zen

PS...I will be uploading these Sims on my own website soon & I will even be remaking some of them. So just check out my profile & click the link to my homepage/website to get more.

Thanks for all the lovely comments...
There are so many great Harry Potter skins already but I might make McGonagle and some of the less popular characters. I can't make meshes and am not too good at recolouring but I will do my best.
If you have any ideas at which characters you would like me to have a go at please ask (no promises but I will have a go)

I may be making the following Minerva McGonagal, Albus Dumbledore, Gildroy Lockheart, Rita Skeeta, the house ghosts (Grey Lady, Baron, Friar and NH Nick) and Mr & Mrs Weasley. These characters don't get done so much so I will be happy to give it a go. It may be slow due to the fact that I recently (by accident) deleted every skin I had so I am having to re-download but am finding new great meshes and stuff on my travels which are just perfect for these characters.

When I say "may" I mean "I will"...lol. I may try to make them like the characters from the films but with my own variation as it is very difficult to get a complete likeness in the Sims.

you could use stretch skeleton to make him tall but he is the standard fat sim as it is in the game...I am not a mesher. I would like to use one of the fat guy meshes from this site to create clothes for him but have tried without much success. I am not sure how stretch skeleton works as I havn't tried that particular cheat in my game yet. Maybe someone on here could give you tips on how to do it...I would be interested too.
I can't wait to see your movie...

which mesh is it?
Test Subject
#23 Old 2nd May 2006 at 3:12 AM
I don't think this download is real clear about meshes. It seems that the mesh for the hair and beard are not included just the recolors. The links don't work for the most part, but I figured out how to get around that. The only thing that I can't find is the hair mesh at the sims connection. I'm not sure which hair it is. Is it a pay file by chance?
