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 everybody!

This is my first bodyshop set, as I'm more of an object maker. Now why did I create that? I was just sick of seeing one of my favourite sims, the obnoxious Sg'glu, magically grow back her left hand when she changed her clothes...

So here is my metal hand accessory (230 faces), directly extracted from the mad scientist outfit and wearable by just anyone. It works better for YAs to Elders though! It's also compatible with other accessories, stays on all the time, has the original texture, washes your laundry, does your homework and is environment-friendly. (the Tooltip in the makeover screen is Metal hand (of doom!))

I have also included at least one clothing item with no left hand for every clothing category, and one extra top for the casual one. Weirder items are also available in the FemaleMeshes_More and FemaleWeirder archives.

Important note!
For some reason, the accessory doesn't seem to be compatible with the game's alien skintone. You may need to change your alien's skintone to a custom one using SimPE to let them wear it.

Also, you need the Seasons EP for the outerwear to be selectable, duh.

Feel free to recolour (but please give credit) or make more meshes with the left hand missing. And please don't upload this on any paysite or the Exchange, or Sg'glu will come for you. Is that clear?

Enjoy!

Polygon Counts:
All these meshes are Maxis ones with less polys, except for the spiky dress (1874 polys).

Additional Credits:
Thanks to the creators of SimPE and the PJSE tools, and to Tig, who explained the latter to me. It's a life saver!
Also, thanks to Kavar from the Weirdo zone for the spiky dress, bubbligirl for the skull undies/bikini, Manzanita88 for the trikini and vectorlover for the sci-fi suits

Here's a question since I don't have Seasons and like to do things myself--how did you get past the GOO factor? Everytime I try taking off an upper extremity, it explodes out of the mesh in twisted tendrils. Then if I reassign the stuff, it turns into one tentacle that nails itself to the floor. I need more input.................

Pity it's only the left. I've been building a Walking Dead neighborhood and this would have worked for Merle.

There might be a conflict with an already-existing item in our game, but for some reason. though this item does show up in glasses, it does not show up on the Sim. Were we supposed to download something else?

My daughter downloaded only the mesh for the hand and the other file ... not the handless mesh. Did she need that mesh?

Thanks to ALL free-site creators, admins and mods.

RIP Sunni ... truly a ray of light.

Yeah, the mesh isn't working for me, either, and I downloaded all of the files. Strangely, in BodyShop, it appears under Glasses when under Create Parts, but in Build Sims it doesn't show up at all, it doesn't even show up in the list. It's weird that it would appear in Create Parts but not in Build Sims...
