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.

Hi Guys

presenting.......

The "Tinkerbell" Animated Wings....with animated gold dust!









Ok guys..... I had to put animating accessories to good use...and this was a great idea by LyricLee....so I had to try and see if I could do it.

These translucent wings 'beat' quickly...and, just like Tinkerbell, they are surrounded by animated gold 'dust' ...(or whatever that stuff is that follows her around..:confused

This is an ACCESSORY....and can be found in the Glasses section.

Polygon Count: 760 (=ok )

The wings 'beat' at 12 times a second...now, depending on your machine processor and graphics card, their speed MAY vary. On my machine (Radeon 9600 card) they 'skip' a frame every now and then...but, actually, that kind of 'adds' to the animation...because it looks more 'natural'...you know...like a butterfly...(their wing don't beat exactly the same speed all the time). Anyway, see how it looks on your machine. Obviously, the 'slower' your machine...the slower your animation MAY be).
The 'dust' (stuff) is also animated at 9 frames per second....so that too looks more 'random' with the wing beats.
Note : the pictures here are animated gifs: These are constant speed animations to give you an idea of what they look like. In game, the animations appear more 'life like' due to the game 'skipping' frames when it's busy doing other things (...personally I think they look better in game than on these sceenshot animations...)

It is ONLY available to FEMALE Teen --- > Elders (and probably Young Adults...though I don't have Nightlife so I can't check myself....maybe one of you could post to confirm this?)
****EDIT*** Yes, they do work on Young Adults... *********

They can be worn with other accessories (Maxis, mine or other creators) and are worn with all clothes....including nude, swimming and showering (i.e. 'waterproof') ....

Anyway, I made these were a personal 'gift' to LyricLee who wanted them ....so please.....don't send me any requests....my own personal 'wish-list' is long enough...!



enjoy!


Bob

Recolours: Feel free to post here at MTS2. Do not include the original mesh file in your recolours, .... please put a link back to here.


Lots: DO NOT include this item in any Sim or Lot uploads. You may include it in your screenshots, but please REMOVE this item before packaging and uploading your Sim and/or Lot.

(Both the Bodyshop and CAS screen tooltip have this information in them....)

Put a link in your lot upload for people to come to this thread to download it. (This way, they will be getting the most recent version, which may include any updates since you downloadload it.)

Please .... DO NOT CLONE .... or put on pay/donation sites.

DO NOT UPLOAD TO THE EXCHANGE ... UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES

****************************************************************************************************
It has come to my attention that certain of my objects/accessories are being uploaded to The Exchange and then being 'claimed' as the creation of the uploader. This is both immoral and unfair and totally against my wishes. My objects/accessories take many hours of work, and I upload them here (for free) for you guys to enjoy. I think that the least I deserve for this is 'recognition' as the creator.
I would appreciate your co-operation in reporting this to me (and even better, telling the uploader that they are breaching my legal copyright) if you see it happening.
Thank you

These are seriously wonderful. I've been wanting some wings for my Kii Sims, and these should do nicely. They aren't perfect for the race, but better than anything else I've seen. I've been nervous about trying to make my own accessories because I've only just now managed clothes and hair and accessories are more complicated, it seems to me. So, thanks bunches.
