Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hi, here are some SeeD uniforms you can dress whoever in, modeled by Squall and Quistis. (These are full sims by the way.) These kind of took awhile, I hope you think it was worth the effort! The outfits are available as an everday outfit AND as a formal outfit. Woot. I had basically finished these awhile ago and never got around to fully finishing them and screencapping them, etc. So here you are, finally

Please read my directions for mesh downloading before posting questions!!! (But if you have any trouble I will be more than happy to help :P)

You MUST download the following in order for the characters to show up correctly!:

Quistis:
Hair mesh and color - by rose (www.rosesims2.net) it's on the 4th page of hairs in the free section (Just hover over "Sims2" in the sidebar, a menu will pop up, click on hair, then click page 4 at the top--it's the first one on the page)
clothing mesh - alpha skirt and high heels by marvine

Squall:
hair mesh - maxis, I believe, but if it won't show try downloading the "Duncan's Silky Hair" by Louis from http://louis.new21.net/. I'm pretty sure he's using a Maxis mesh that he's cut using the alpha, but he may have modified the mesh in some way, and since I can't read whatever language that is (all I see are ???'s in the description) I can't be sure.

clothing mesh - unlocked by mtbeer (http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=30448&c=1)



Now for the credits:

Quistis's eye color - by Tanja Elina
Quistis's lips - helaene, www.helaene.com
eyeshadow - by xandher
Quistis's skintone - by barcelonista
Quistis's eyebrows - by rose at www.simstv.com
Quistis's clothes and eyeliner - me
Squall's skintone - by helaene (www.helaene.com), face retouched by me
Squall's eyes - by barcelonista
Squall's eyebrows - by mimewhite
Squall's lips - by helaene (www.helaene.com)
Squall's eyeliner - by ricaco (http://happyhh.s82.xrea.com/)
Squall's haircolor - by Louis (http://louis.new21.net/)

Phew. I hope that's everything. The Garden is coming along very slowly (moreso than I anticipated) and I'm going to be moving for a couple of weeks, so it may be quite some time. My apologies. Hopefully in maybe... a month-ish? Or if I do a less perfectionistic job, sooner Oh and I'll do the cadet uniforms that I promised after I finish the Garden, so I guess that means more waiting for that also. I wish I had more time to spend doing this because it's so much fun! But alas, real life gets in the way.

In the meantime, happy simmimg!

Peace,
shannanagins

I think you placed the belt on Squall a bit to high... Not that i could do it but i'm just saying!!!

Do you bury me when i'm gone,

These are great, and it's lovely to hear that you're working on making Garden as well! =D
Any chance of also making a Seifer sim, perhaps?

Awesome! I've always loved the SeeD uniforms, and it's so cool to be able to use them in the game! Thanks a lot!

Edit: The Squall file seems to be corrupted.

I love this,actually I love Quistis(my fave from FF series,she looks like my cousin),n how did u manage to compress 2 sims but only 4 MB+?!I compressed 1 sim n it usually 6 MB+ :insane:

For Freelance Wolf if it said corrupted when u r DLing,its probably ur internet browser's problem,if it said corrupted when u r unzipping it,then the DL process wasn't complete,u should reDL it anyway

Problems installing stuffs?Use Sims2Pack Clean Installer

Problems extracting stuffs?Use ALZip

#19 Old 13th Apr 2006 at 11:09 AM
It said corrupted when attempting to install the file. The Quistis one is fine, though, so I don't see how the DL process wasn't completed unless both files were corrupted.

I just tried it again anyway and it still says corrupted.

wow...
these are great. I have been trying to re-make all of the main locations from FFVIII for some time now and the Garden is rather tricky. How are you going by it? I was going to make it from multiple lots packed close to one another on a custom neighborhood but it is very difficult. I did make Winhill and Edea's Orphanage already. Close to completion with Timber.

edit: forgot to add that I also have a completed Caraway's Mansion.

I was also making the FFVIII characters, main and subs but you have pretty much beat me on them. Rose made the perfect Rinoa mesh for me (she is sweet) but otherwise, your sims are great for the rest of them. I was hoping someone could come out with a good mesh for Squall's normal outfit but have not seen one yet.

I would love to help you out in anyway that I can to complete this FFVIII themed Sims 2 world. Just let me know!

This is weird..?
I downloaded the file and also all the meshes in the correct map, but my Quistis doesn't seem to show up anywhere...

I need help here anyone got any suggestions... I did try to downloading it a few times by now but I really can't find her?

Do you bury me when i'm gone,
do you teach me while i'm here.
Just as soon as i belong,

kevin: hmm, did you make sure and install the sims2pack file? I've done that before, where I would just extract all my .rars to the download folder but can't find the full sims. Go back into the downloads folder and see if you can find them. Hope that helps!

mera: thanks! haha, yeah my rinoa is kinda.... chunky At the time there was no appropriate mesh. Anyway, for the garden, I am using the largest sized lot, and it's actually going to fit (barely)! It's slighty scaled down, but I think it will still get the point across. I'll post working screenshots here later, if you want to see them. Also, you should upload your ff8 buildings/neighborhoods! I would love to have them :D

Due to lack of time and motivation, I will be retiring.
