Hi. This is my first sims 2 upload, so please bear with my confusion about which things you need to download to make it work.

I have been having trouble finding a good Rinoa, so I decided to make my own version of her in her everyday blue outfit. I am using lykurgus's jedi dueling robe mesh for her clothing (found here: Now available for Non-EP users!

Also, I have re-texturized a mesh by Rose from SimsTV for her hair: -- The site is slow, but worth it!

These things should all be included in the pack:
The eyebrows are from Sue (I can't remember what site it came from--if it's yours let me know and I'll be happy to accomodate to your terms of use), the lipstick is from Akito, and the skintone is by Sandy at Around the Sims 2 ( The rest is custom made by me (eyes, eyeshadow, hair and clothing textures--feel free to redistribute, credit would be appreciated :D).

Hope you like her! (If the maxis installer says that you need expansion data, try using Clean Installer to install her.)

**Note, she looks a little off in the game, so you'll probably want to tweak her a bit. The first screenshot is the in game version without adjustments, with a tiny picture of her in bodyshop in the corner (just a comparison for you to tweak by). If you just make her eyes a tiny bit smaller I think she will be in good shape

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

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

She's very pretty, but the link to SimTV won't work, I heard they had closed down, so is there anyway I can get the hair mesh?

The link works fine for me, but it takes forever to load. You could try going to then browsing your way to the second page of hair files (the one on the top in the middle is the one you want). Let me know if you still can't get to it at all and I'll see about uploading it here.

I think this is the most accurate Rinoa I have ever seen, I DLed already...she looks wonderful in the game.
#16 Old 9th Nov 2005 at 2:25 AM
I really was needing Rinoa after getting Squall and Laguna in my game. Have you tried your hand at making a Quistis Trepe yet? If so, let me know. I'd love to see her! Edea would be another one that would look great. But if I did ever get her, I'd love to have Jenova and Kuja also just so I can put Sephiroth in the house with them and have a house of bad asses messing up the sims town. Lol... I'm odd.

Ok tincent, I'll see what I can do. Right now I'm working on an Irvine, so once that's finished I'll work on your requests. I think I'll also work on men's and women's Seed uniforms, too. (By the way--I want a badass house in my neighborhood, too... Great fun )

kittyloaf: I just saw a non-EP update for the clothing mesh I used for her. Try downloading that, and see if you can download her. If that doesn't work, then I don't know what's wrong--you may need Clean Installer to pick out certain files. Or maybe you can install all the files if you have it (the maxis installer is finicky...)

Let me know if this works

as soon as i get uni, i will download this sim coz i only have the orgiginal.
i have been searching for a Blue dress rinoa for ages now i have finaly found one, and i read "UNI ONLY" and i'm like "NOOOO!" lol but it looks realy good, i already have 1 rinoa which is the one with the dance unifrom so that means i can mix there costumes and which goes better with whitch and stuff.

but good job, especially for your first creation, my first attmep was on jill valentine and i don't think that turned out very well.. she's on here if anyone wants to see her and downlaod her, just search for Jill Valentine and you will come across one made by Merzitar. that the one you need.

good job on rinoa and keep up the good work
