This was a really usefull upload and something which I really needed in my game. How could EA miss them? Thank you so much for making them. This must be a lot of hard work! I have already tested them and they are awesome.

oepusims.tumblr.com. I don't take request. I have 2 children and few freetime. Use my creations as you wish. You don't have to ask.

Thanks so much! I'm a great admirer of your hairs, skins, clothes, and other creations (talk about hard work!) so that really means a lot. :D

yea so it doesn't work... I'm not understanding why. installed everything into the "Mods" folder as normal for .package files. Went to my game and looked at the ear sliders - nothing appears... Anything I've done wrong? I can't imagine so...

I just took the files out of the mods folder and re-downloaded and replaced. Nothing happened, no slider, no nice ears. I feel a little jipped

Just to confirm, do you have the packages in your "mods\packages" folder, and the resource.cfg set up correctly? (Or are you using the Installer Monkey?) Does other CC work for you?

Are you looking in the CAS ear section, where the ear size and rotation are? Have you tried scrolling down to see if the new sliders are just not on the screen?

What operating system are you using? (The only other person who's complained uses a Mac, but she says the sliders show in CAS but don't work.) What game patch? (This was developed and tested on 1.4.6, and beta tested by several other people.)

Have you tried Delphy's breast mods and do they work?

Other custom content does work for me, I have re-downloaded and replaced my resource.cfg file just in case, @ that point I re-downloaded the ears and put those into my mods folder. Still nothing! The CAS screen shows no signs of anything new under the appropriate screen. Yes I am looking in the screen which displays the ear size and rotation. I am using Windows Vista. I have not tried the breast mods yet, those a a little weird to me, lol. Anything else you could think I might be doing wrong? I can't seem to find anything I could have left out. I can post screen pics if you would like...

Screen pics might help. I don't use Vista myself but I've read that there can be problems with permissions: http://www.sims2wiki.info/wiki.php?...sta_Permissions

About all I can suggest is that you check that the account you're using to play has the same permissions to the ear packages as to the other CC you're using. Maybe someone with Vista would be able to jump in here with other ideas. Also if you would try the breast mods it would at least tell us if possibly Vista has a problem with slider mods, since Delphy's sliders and mine work on the same principle.

My laptop is Vista and the sliders work fine in my game. Sometimes you need to turn off the UAC to install items. That's what I'd suggest.

Is there a way to make the ears stick out hore horizontally rather than straight up?
I got some slight horizontal angle...but not enough.

Oh, this is great! I was so annoyed when I couldn't do pointy ears anymore with TS3. Thanks a lot!

You can get more of a tilt using Rick and Delphy's facial slider hack if your game isn't patched, or the facial slider hack in Awesomemod or Indiestone. Also I've been considering doing an alternate version of the ear tilt for a more horizontal effect.

I'm also having problems with this mod. While I can see the sliders, and can adjust the ears, it only stays as long as I am in CAS. As soon as I go into play mode the ears return to normal. I have tried re downloading and re installing this mod to no effect. Any ideas?

Could you go into the Options menu, first tab (Graphics), and post or PM me the Screen Size and Sim Detail you're using? Also your operating system - Mac, Vista, WinXP? Thanks!

Screen Size is 800X600, it is not in full screen mode and screen refresh rate is set to default.
Object hiding is enabled, as are reflections, Animation smoothing and advanced rendering are not enabled.
Edge smoothing is high, Visual effects, lighting and shadows are low, Tree detail is medium, Draw distance is medium, High detail lots is set to 2, texture detail is high, and Sim detail is set to very high.

Most of that information is probably irrelevant to the problem.

Also, I'm on a Vista computer, but I know it's not a problem with the UAC (which is turned off) or a Vista conflict itself since my sister's Vista runs your mod just fine. Making me very confused.
