This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Yay, more sparklies! I got bored and plinked around making some more basic colours of my sparklies for ya. Included is blue, red, fuchsia, purple, and green. My apologies to dialup users for the big animations.


In addition, I came up with some flies, for your nasty sims. I feel a little sorry for my poor model here... I found a custom sim here that was yucky (with Bink13y's help), but he was actually -too- yucky and a little stomach-churning to look at, so I threw this sad-looking guy together in a few minutes as I just couldn't put my flies on Corvus or Morrigan... My apologies if my model looks like you or someone you know.

You must download the mesh from here!!!

Clicky the pictures for bigger versions. I like BIG pics. :D



Thanks to:
  • Bink13y, for just being himself, and for encouraging the idea of flies, and for finding me a yucky sim, even if he was too yucky to look at.

So sorry to hear you've had trouble with thieves, luv. I adore your sparklies (and so do my little sim elfbois). ;-) Work like yours makes The Sims so much more fun to play! Keep up the good work, and don't get discouraged.

hehe I'm glad to see you've started uploading some more of your work... and don't worry about the content stealers: they'll get what's coming to them eventually. Try not to focus on the jerks who steal from you.... just focus on all of the people who appreciate your work as much as everyone who commented here.

iilove_meii - That font is called "Violation" - it's actually a Depeche Mode related font, from their Violator album era. You can find it free by searching around - try Google, or

I got a little over zealous cleaning out my downloads folder awaiting Seasons, and accidentally deleted this. The result was that my creepy, flea-infested neigbourhood zombie went around covered in what, yes, looked very much like post-its.

I love the idea of multi-coloured sparklers around my Sims, HystericalParoxysm, and the addition of flies is even better. Thank you very much - I look forward to playing with these new items :-)
