Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
As requested (but I was creating antennae anyway ):

Here are two Andorian Sims, one male, one female, the one special feature is of course the typical antennae. The antennae are accessory-meshes made by me (mesh & texture).

All the other parts are fairly standard sims stuff, I created a skintone and light blue eyes. The Uniform the male wears was made by .::TSN::., you can get it here on MTS2 (but it's of course in the sims2pack).

The following text is from the Memory Alpha Database :

Andorians

The Andorians were a humanoid species from the moon Andoria, capital world of the Andorian Empire, and were one of the founding members of the United Federation of Planets.

Physiology

Most Andorians had a distinctive blue skin and white or silver-colored hair. A sub-species of Andorians known as the Aenar had white skin; unlike the blue Andorians, the Aenar were blind and telepathic. Andorians and Aenar were genetically compatible and could produce offspring. (ENT: "These Are the Voyages...")

Andorians had a higher metabolism than humans. (ENT: "United") Andorians were very susceptible to high temperatures, an Andorian could lose 10% of its body weight in as little as two days in climates approaching the boiling point of water. (ENT: "The Aenar")

Because of the unusual physiology of the Andorians, intravenous injection was impossible; instead a doctor must opt for inter-muscular injection. (TOS: "Whom Gods Destroy")

Antennae

Andorians had on their heads two knobbed antennae which were used for balance. An Andorian was partially disabled and unable to fight immediately following the loss of an antenna, but was able to compensate this within a day or so. The antenna itself could take up to nine months to regrow on its own, although the regeneration could be completed in around half that time with electrical stimulation and cranial massage therapy. The loss of an antenna was a humiliating experience for an Andorian to come to terms with. (ENT: "United")


Have fun! :wave:

Edit: I have reuploaded the female, as there was a formal gown from Nightlife included in the package. Now she should work without any EPs. Sorry about the glitch!

Yes, they are for all ages. I gues the antennae are a little too big for kids, but maybe that's just andorian physiology. :D

Edit:
I'm not sure if these will show on babies and toddlers (because those can't wear glasses)... The package-intern ID, however, is not the same as that of glasses, so maybe it works.

That's strange and should not happen. Maybe one of her dresses is from nightlife...

Edit: In fact, there was a formal gown from Nightlife in the package. Sorry about that. I've reuploaded the female with standard attire.

happy simming,
Xanathon

Great. I`m a big fan of the Andorians. I am surprised it is possible to create this Antennas. I waited for this a long time.

Looks great. I will create an andorian family.

This will be the first time I play non-humans in Sims2.

Sorry, not a Trekkie, but had to comment on the great antennae! Wow, nice job, I've needed these for a while now (perfect for mutants), they turned out great! The skintone is really nice too.

Excellent Job!

Not to put down or overlook Xanathon's amazing creation or anything, but you don't really need the female, just download the male and in Bodyshop, change his gender to female. In the pics, the female is wearing an original game outfit. The skintone, eyes, and eyebrows should be for either gender. The antennae are for both genders as well. The only thing you would be missing is her white hair, but there's loads of recolors on this site, and I'm sure white is one of them.

Again, your work is amazing as ever Xanathon! :nod:

I doublechecked: No more EP-components in the females sims2pack. I can only guess that he got the old version from browsercache or a proxy when he tried to download the new one.

Other than that syn is of course right. Next time I do something like this I will only upload the accessoire... :D

happy simming,
Xanathon

Cheers!, this'll be most useful - as I find that the game lets you create Vulcans/Romulans okay, but not some of the more interesting species!...

Thanks for taking time to create/upload/share!.

To all, of the very talented MTS-2 creative types - my sincere thanks for taking the time to create/upload/share...
