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.
Hi,
today i've found a real easy way to convert adult meshes to children ones. I just had to try it out on the graduation robe (also I had promised to do this if I found an easy way - you see I stick to what I say )

So what you get is a converted graduation robe, that works for both genders, uses a bump map and on top of that has a fat state (I have to admit my other robes dont :hmm: ). They also should work in any game configuration...e.g. all ep's or none

Now ALL your wizards, witches, or whatever other sim you want to put into a robe, can wear them for their WHOLE life...well not when they are still babies or toddler's or just taking a bath, but you get what I mean.
For teen to elder look into my profile you'll find them all there.

Usage policy
As always you may recolour, but you may not include the mesh with your recolours. Just link back here for the mesh and please do not upload to paysites.

Have fun
mia :dunce:

How about posting a tutorial of your new technique?

That would be really useful, I have been working on getting a mesh for children for ages and it would be really nice if I could do it faster.

Heh cool, that almost sounds as if I were an expert .
I'll try (after checking if it's really a new way to convert). Basically its just about re-using the joints of a child-mesh for an adult mesh...importing a child and adult gmdc into the same project and then deleting the adult joints. If someone knows a tutorial that covers this, please tell me and save me from doing something that already exists

you can still pm me with requests and stuff...only i'm not very often logged in at the moment...
busy with real life, try later again ;)

So perfect for so many non-current and/or non-real life. Especially nice for medieval settings.

I'll consider it...but as I'm already very behind on the requests I got, I cant promise anything...I'll PM you if I decide to do it

BTW I did do the guide on age-conversion some time ago, just forgot to put up a link .

Super thanks for these, especially under a Harry Potter listing. I'm kinda obnoxious about book canonical purity, and these fall under that category instead of forcing me to use the movie-canon uniforms which are all wrong. This is lovely!
