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.
A loooong long time ago waaaay back when The Sims 2 came out, plicka made this hair.

And I loved it! I hated, however, that I couldnt use it with any hair, and I didnt know how to make it into an accessory.

Well, now, in The Sims 3, no such antlers exist, so I did it myself. Using plicka's mesh as a base, I have created...antlers! An accessory!


They are for ages teen-elder, both male and female, in all clothing categories. And by that, I mean ALL categories. Work, Naked, Singed, everything. Though they may not appear when naked, because the game seems to randomly decide if something should or not. They are EARRINGS, however, so they should show up normally.

This means your sim will wear them ALL THE TIME (as long as you tell them to). As if they're grown into their head. :D

The texture is wonky, though:
Because of the shape, UV mapping them would be hell. So they do not work with anything but simple textures. By default they have a leather texture. They look horrible with others, like the zebra texture(shown in the pictures).

They look fine with simple textures, like, say...metal?


They also have a weird effect on them in CAS, but this does not show up in game.


The weird CAS texture will change as you put on glasses and stuff, but it won't affect anything.

They don't clip through doors, but obviously will clip through stuff like beds and walls and the fridge and anything your sim sticks their head into :p

Personally, I've gotten into the habit of...putting them on EVERYONE.



Ages:
Teen-Elder
Genders:
Both
Category:
Earrings
Clothing:
ALL

Feel free to use on sims, but don't share the package and always link to me. :D

Polygon Counts:
1135 Polys, 591 Vertices

Additional Credits:
EsmereldaF, for her help and her Servo, who looks great with metal antlers.

plicka for making the original hair that I used as a base
The clothing and Hair on the female model is from the store.
Tarzan's hair is from this female to male conversion pack. And Tarzan is from Me :p

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

If you would like them to be something else, it's really easy!

Download the CAS Unitool from here on MTS. Choose file -> Open and open the package. Then go to "part category" and uncheck earrings, and check "gloves" instead. Then just save.

They are earrings because I have a few accessories in my game that already take up the gloves slots, sock slots, etc, and I use them all at once. So for my purposes, I gave up earrings so that I could have these along with those other nontraditional accessories.

But it's easy for anyone ot make them whatever type they want. :D

I plan on uploading the unicorn horn, but I dont want to upload it as-is...I am fine with it as-is, but I feel it needs something more, and that something more is PROBABLY a spiral texture that makes it look like a spiral horn instead of a cone, but I can't figure that out. So it's on hold.

Awesome! I can't think of a use for them right now, but I'm gonna get 'em anyway. And the Servo does look great with metal antlers.

Human beings are a very irrational species. Some of them are even afraid of pickles.
