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.
Back in Sims 1 I had lots of sims that looked like foxes or other animals. I have found several furry skins for the sims 2 but no tails i liked. So i started to create my own. I have created one version with ears and one without.

These foxtails show up as accesories for all ages (toddler to elder) and in both genders. Yes, that's right, they show up for toddlers too and it works fine in my game. They stay on with all outfits, including work outfits and pregnancy clothing and they can be combined with other accesories and glasses.

My foxtail should work with or without any expansion packs. but since i have University and Nightlife installed, i obviously couldn't test it without EP's installed. If it doesn't work, please let me know.

You are free to recolour or redistribute my meshes. If you make recolours, you have to make sure your downloaders find this mesh. You can include it in your download or link back to this thread. Only conditions: i'd like some credit as creator of this mesh and this mesh should be free accesible for everyone (so don't offer it as pay or donation item)


UPDATE

*I finally managed to fix the glossyness problem (actually Simfull Serpent and Britva were the ones who found the solution, thanks again) So now the foxtail will look better. I had to fix the bodyshop package, not the mesh, so recolours made with the old version could still have the problem. Recolours made with the fixed foxtail should work fine.

*The more important update is related to the animal kingdom project I'm making right now. the animal kingdom project will be a collection of tail and ears meshes. You will be able to combine any tail and ear of this collection, or use only a tail or only ears. All ears and tails are for ages toddler to elder and both genders and will stay on your sims all the time, regardless what type of clothing they are wearing at the moment.

The foxtial mesh itself doesn't fit into the animal kingdom but it will stay here for those people who already downloaded it. The foxtail with just the tail (no ears) will be part of the animal kingdom. I'm adding foxears as well, which can be used seperately or combined with any tail in my animal kingdom project.

If you don't have the foxtail yet, it would be best to download the animal kingdom version. The main advantages are flexibility (you have more freedom to combine them with other tails ears) and more detailed looking foxears.

Happy simming

I love you. Been asking for this for so long. Btw does this work for all cloths? I mean will it stay on for swimming and undies, etc?

I just think we should cook and eat all the PETA people.

This looks so very cool. I was wondering what I would do for a tail if I ever attempted to do a Shippo and now, I know.

OMGYAY!!! *Downloads* I'm a fox fanatic and was JUST talking to my roomie about making one of these. Now I just need to start on recolours, if that's alright? Silver foxes, black, etc... *Rubs hands together in glee*

THANK YOU!

Oh wow! *_* How wonderful... I see some kyuubi foxes and wolves in my sims futures with this, for sure. Thanks, both for making them and for making them combinable with glasses and accessories. Arigatou.
Youkochylde, will your recolours also be available for download later on? I'd love black and silver versions too. ^_^

WOOHOO! [runs around the room a few times] now my avatar's foxy wife can be even foxier!

Gives me an idea but it'd be off topic in here so I'm off to the mesh requests section. Here's a simplificaton of the idea though. Make stuff like this genetic so you can have mixed-species marrages.

Thanks

Yay! finally a tail to go with the furry skins I got from http://genensims.com:banana:

Not buying TS4 until Terrain Sculpting is back and cheatless Split Levels are added!
Here's an idea: Stairs Pitch Slider.

This is perfect! And the ears are a great size. It definitely helps out a lot - thanks for this great mesh! And a big thanks for the permission to recolor and whatnot - though I don't often do recolors I know this is a great plus for everyone. ^_^
