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.
As per request, here's a long loincloth for SynapticSim. It's for ages child-elder, and can be worn with other accessories. It's made to fit the default nude mesh, so it will probably bleed into any clothes with any substance. The young adult-elder male loincloth is a bit loose on the Maxis body, because I made it to fit the bodybuilder as well, but it's not really noticable or anything.

The animation for this thing isn't that great. If I made it follow the legs, the shape got distorted whenever the sim moved, but if I just let it hang there the legs cut through it constantly. So, to compromise, the front follows the motion of the legs, but the back hangs from the waist. I did it like this because the front would get cut through a lot more, and because the distortions in the back actually messed up the color of the loincloth.

In the screenshots, the loincloth is lighter around the edges. This has been fixed in the uploaded file.

You know, when I finished all my finals, I was excited because I thought I'd have more free time during the break to do this like this. I failed to remember that I'd have to go back to work, and that nine hours of retail work a day are much more draining than 4 hours of school a day. Plus I'm trying some new stuff out in my meshes that, if I could get them to work, will make my work better, but are currently just really time consuming. I did do one thing successfully though - the texture map for this mesh is 512x512 instead of 256x256. Which, considering how simple it it, might be kinda pointless, but now I know how to do it for more complicated meshes, making coloring them easier. So to everyone who's requested anything: I will get to it. It's just taking me a while. And if anyone out there knows how to make accessories alpha-editable and can help me debug my attempts at it, I would be eternally grateful.

And now, the new improved diclaimer: Recolor at will, but do not redistribute the mesh without permission. All recolors should link back to this post. Do not upload to any paysites, and do not upload to the Exchange. I didn't mind people doing that in the past, but when my stuff turns up on the Exchange a link is never provided, so the accessory is useless. Plus I had an issue with theft. And I know they're pretty much nonexistant, but feel free to use any color I include with my meshes in your own creations, as long as credit is given and a link to the mesh is provided. HOWEVER, this doesn't apply to anyone else's recolors of my meshes. Those are the property of the respective creators, and you have to ask them about redistribution. I think that's it.

Very cool. I wanted to make a loincloth garment for Rabid Angel's aborgine skintone, but couldn't find a mesh that would work. I believe this will fit the bill. And it's a plus that you made this for the bodybuilder body type too... So, I'm a happy gal at the moment. I'll be posting back with my results providing they don't totally suck...

Oh and that this is an accessory mesh is even cooler... my thanks.

Wow GZoi! It looks even cooler on an actual sim! I can't wait to get to work on this, Blink, Mystique, Elektra, Angel, YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!

Thank you so much for doing this, you know what you mean to me, so I won't get all mushy, lol!

P.S. Farath, this can't be greyed out because it's not alpha editable. The alpha file is what controls the transparency. As of yet, that function on an accessory isn't available.

Speaking of which, I propose the request to make another fudoushi (which is the Japanese term for a loincloth) for the sim, this time, a bit shorter and available for both males and females. I would honorably thank you for this as well. :bow2:

Wow, this looks great! It actually moves fairly well in game.

Could somebody use this as a base to recreate the sweet outfit worn by Queen Taramis at the end of the movie Conan the Destroyer? I'm terrible at skins, but I'm sure somebody out there can do it quite easily.

Can do. I was planning it anyway. I was really hoping to make this alpha editable so it could be any length, but it just didn't work out. And this one is for both males and females.

I hear you there. I use Clean Installer, so I can install anything regardless of the expansion it requires (although it's not guaranteed to work properly) but I know not everyone does, so I try to upload the files so everyone can install them.

Okay, the alpha isn't editable but can it be recolored? If so I have big plans involving Princess Leia and various other parts of Jabba's palace for this mesh!

Is spying really as bad as it sounds? C'mon. They're in your thoughts. You're in their bushes. It evens out.

Greetings


Yet again you give me something I needed unlooked for. This will enable me to recreate a short lived Daemon character from one of my writing pieces (or others of the same species)! This is exactly how I describe it in the story, but with slightly different texturing. I am going to make this highly reflective, black, and marked with Daemonic runes.

Thank you yet again...

I don't do recolors of my stuff, and it's easy to recolor. Just export it in Body Shop and color away.

For some reason when I download the file and choose where to extract it to a window will pop up and say there are no files to extract, what should I do?
