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.
First I would like to thank Quaxi and Skankyboy for the tools(toys?) that they make.

Also thanks to SnowStorm for your advice on how to get things to work.

For those who want to know
Face Count-3108

Maxis Hula skirt
Face count-3570

The mesh is alpha editable with working fat morph and bumpmaps(thanks to Skankyboy).

If you want to make recolours that is great just don't post on paysites and let me know so I can see them too.I am posting the uv maps for anyone who wants them but you only need them if you are going to use them to make recolours.

The textures that I made aren't that great and I am tired so hopefully someone will make some better ones or maybe I will get time to make some soon.


I have posted the body without the dress here

Thanks for all of the compliments.

Hakaisha the purple dress is "all there is" I may make a longer version later if I can get it to work right.

oh awesome! Just the mesh I was looking for! This would make such a great little babydoll dress!

*runs off to make some*

Out of commision because my computer is a complete piece of crap.
#14 Old 24th Apr 2006 at 8:02 PM
LOL yes, I did an alpha skirt, but PAF takes the concept one step further since the bumpmaps work, and the skinners around here will love playing with a dress - this was really needed, and this mesh is beautiful!

PAF, my sincerest congratulations, and thank you Now i'll have to upturn the forums to find out how Skankyboy solved the bumpmapping issue... :D

Just made a trench coat and bomber jacket for Rogue, and just wanted to come back and say how cool this new mesh is PAF. If I could give you 5 more stars and thank you again, I would. It's really great!

I'll be uploading Rogue later in the day.

Thanx again! ~ Syn

*Starts singing* "I want a girl with a short skirt and looooooooong jacket." And now, I just might have her! Bwahahahahah! Thanks so much for making this such a possibility. Although, I may not be able to do it with any success, 'cause I kinda suck that way. *sobs* But, dammit, I'm gonna try!

Okay. Total dunce here. Where do I put the two .bmp images that come in the file named MTS2_281699_PAF_Dress_uv.rar? Do I just drop them into my downloads file or what? I'm used to package files I can just drop in my downloads files and if something I'm not used to like this gets thrown at me, I screech to a halt faster than my computer freezes up under the weight of all these fabulous downloads I find here!
