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.
The mesh have been updated with better "feet/walk animation". Please re-download the mesh.
Thanks to the great BlooM at Insim, the no “inside” issue my alpha meshes had, is gone.
You only have to re-download the mesh and it will replace the old file, the recolors still work.

Original post
This mesh is a bottom only alpha skirt and works for both young adults & adults and hopefully all games.
I've tested it and found two issues(see below). I made this mesh because I think my first mesh didn't "allow" creativity in shoes.

For creators I've prepared a "CreatorPack" which includes a (very)basic texture(see pic) and a uv-map.
This mesh is also available with flat shoes. Click here .

I hope it will work alright. Feel free to tell me what you think needs to be changed/improved.

Happy simming!

Vertices: 1395


Known issues

* The only issue I found is that there's a glitch when the sim walks, the legs show.
I solved this by copying the skirt texture onto the legs. If anyone knows how to fix this please, tell me.
* There's no fat morph.
* Creators might want to know that there's only one alpha.

About redistribution and recolors

* Please feel free to make recolors!
* The mesh may be redistributed on personal websites with the recolor. Just give me credit and put a link to this page.
* Please don't redistribute on pay sites. If you make recolors for sites like TSR, please give me credit and put a link to this page.
* You may not use my textures in your own clothes creations.

Credits & Thanks

* HUGE THANKS to the great BlooM at Insimenator.com for helping me with the "insides" issue.
* Thanks & credit to talented Al at www.simskins.net for the shoe mesh.
* Thanks to Tiggerypum & HystericalParoxysm for the exellent tutorials on how to make meshes.
* Thanks to Wes_h for the very helpful Milkshape plugins.

I think I already have this, did you upload it somewhere else? Maybe it is just very similar. Great job!!

-->98% of teenagers do or has tried smoking pot. If you're one of the 2% who hasn't, copy & paste this in your siggy.

Yes, it's looks like my first mesh but with this you can make different kinds of shoes.
And hey, dragon_tfm, I'm looking forward to see the recolors.
