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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Slight mesh problem, please re-download!

I NEEDED a medieval monk cape. I turned out nice, and I thought that someone else might want this so here you go.
Requiers University!
The capes are available for elders and adults(mabey YA as well). The elder cap is much darker than the adult capes.
The mesh is from and the textures are from a dress from Many thanks!
The mesh is included, andas besen asks, her/his readme is in the .rar file.
DO NOT ask for teen, child or toddler version, please. I'm not a mesher.

*Edit* There was a problem with the mesh. Namely that, I got the mesh from another site, that site said it was from Besen's site, and I search it all over and I thought I had found the right mesh. Apperantly not. I decided to include it in the .rar file and if you, Besen, have any problems with this, please contact me.

You've done a very nice job with the texture! It really looks like coarse fabric in the screenshot, there. Cute choice of posture, too!

Btw, I think this item of clothing is technically a "robe." A "cape" is a different kind of garment. That doesn't really matter much, but it might be easier to find this in a search if you add "robe" to the list of keywords ;-)

These look great, but unfortunately they DO require University since Besen's mesh requires that EP. I have NL and Pets, I tried the mesh and your recolors in the game and they don't work. Too bad, but oh well. You should amend your description to let people know this.

I have University, and I have downloaded MESH_besen_amtunika121005 and MESH_besen_am_medtunica from the page you indicated, but still the robes are not showing up properly in my game. Do I have the right mesh?

Same here.

And I think you have the wrong mesh listed as well. This is the one you want: The one for Ghost of Christmas Future. But even with that mesh it isn't showing up so . . . dunno. :^\

I can't seem to find the mesh and I'm definitely not fluent in German. Where can I find the mesh?

Problem is solved with the new archive. With the added mesh, the monks' outfits work fine.
