Testers wanted: Gown mesh

by WDS BriAnna Posted 5th Feb 2005 at 11:39 PM - Updated 6th Feb 2005 at 1:39 AM by WDS BriAnna : To point out there are TWO packages files in the zip - a mesh, and a skin for it

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.
I just wrote a meshing tutorial (in beta testers: tools) and this mesh is the resulting file.

It doesn't overwrite anything and it should be expansion pack compatible. You can recolor it all you want (and I recommend it as I spent about 4 seconds on the skin.) Do whatever you want with the recolors (put them on your site, put them on a paysite) but you will need to include the MESH_WDSGown020505.package file so they show up in your users game. Do not rename it, as they'll end up with a zillion copies if you all rename it. (The blue gown itself is a seperate file. They don't need that one - give 'em your pretty version instead.) I'd appreciate credit if you use the mesh.

It's the full formal gown -- with the hanging thing gone from her back.


You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Yeah I so hate it. I'd see great dresses up on sites. I'd downlaod them then I turn the sims around and see that horrible hanging thing and it just ruined the whole dress for me.

Thank you so much BriAnna, now I'll have to go find all those dresses I trashed because I couldn't tolerate that darn thing hanging down their back. :D

Yay! I hated that thing. I did find creative ways to make it work, though. Like make a necklace, and have the dangly thing be the end of the necklace. Now I don't have to worry about that anymore.

Oh, boy...I've been hoping for this since I saw the mesh, but still downloaded all the medieval-ish gowns I could find. Any chance this, and the elder counterpart, could be made as replacements?

I never understood why Maxis thought the "hanging thing" was a design feature and you have finally eliminated another of those annoying irritants in the game. Thanks a lot (and for writing the tutorial while you did it)!

I would love a gown mesh in this shape but to fit on the teen body...I don't like that there is only one shape for the teen gown, and I knew no one who wore a gown that style to prom and such. This one is more like what people here wear for formal occasions. If that's do-able I'd really apreciate it. Thanks.
