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.

Hi ya'll! i made a mesh...this one is actually mine...no conversions or anything.

i got so sick of just having the crown for that one style that i made it into a glasses mesh and now we can have it for every hairstyle!!! yes i knoe i am lame

anyway...here it is! credits to miche, delphy, wes and of course dr pixel who could not have learned anything without him!!!

note- not tested in the game...that's what you are here for!!! let me know how it works and if i need to fix it somewhere.

you may clone/redistribute/rip apart/do whatever to this mesh...i don't care just let me know via pm if you can cause i love new meshes and textures...this one kinda sucks

Ok, I've had a looksie at the thing in BodyShop, and I can see that the UV map was giving you 3 kinds of hell, you poor poor luv... *empathies*

Is it ok if (when I remember how) I give it a new UV Map so that we have more room to work with far as more detail and less stretching please? I'm happy to help AND I sure could use the practice... this might tak eme a while since I've never exported anything to .obj mode to work in 3dSMax before LOL! *hugz!*

The crown looks great. But I have to ask, where did you get the hair and dress meshes? They look really cute. Brilliant work as always.

*First post here* ^__^

I just downloaded it, It's great for adults. But it's kindof.. floating.. above My Teens(and under) head. I never did meshing, So I can't edit it :P. And probably if it Fit on the teen head, then it would be inside the adult head I think... o__O

I'm gonna test it out in the game tomorrow and hopefuly no bugs! :-D

Hullo nuttytartjan!

Did you unzip the .package file into your Sims 2 game download directory?

If you're working with a brand new fresh install, it's possible that you won't see one, and may have to make one. (Forgive me if you already know about these things, but I have no way of knowing how much experience you have with installing stuff into Sims 2 yet, I'm fairly new also, and have finally figured out these things)

In my case my Sims 2 Download directory is C:\\Program Files\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads

Make sure that it is in the actual Download file area and NOT in it's own little folder under the Download directory or the game won't see it... I learned this one the hard way today.

Are you using WinRAR or WinZIP or some other kind of unzipping program? I usually double check to make sure it didn't put the .package file in the wrong place.

I really hope this helps, best of luck and I mean that very sincerely!
