Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Mod Description
I played Island Paradise for the first time at EA Italy on May 29th, and when I saw mermaid scales on human legs I said 'OH NO!'.
So here I am again with another new mod for mermaids (I'm a real fan of them since I was a child). =)
This mod completely removes the scales on their human legs.

Mermaid Tail Map
There's only one issue, when you go to the mirror for change the color of the scales, you cannot see the colours on the legs.
So I did a little map for you to know how to color your tail.

  • 1. GREEN > Colour of the whole mermaid tail.
  • 2. BLUE > Colour of the fin.
  • 3. RED > Shades of the tail.
  • 4. YELLOW > Shade of the scales.

Game Requirements & Compatibility
This mods was created with Patch 1.55.
You must have The Sims 3 Island Paradise EP installed to use this mod.

If you still see scales on human legs of your mermaid, go to the mirror, press 'Change Scale Color' and change one shade of the tail.
When done, press ok, and the scales disappear!

You can choose one of two downloads, if removes scales only for teens, young adults, adults and elders or for all ages.
You have to download only one!

This mod overrides the following resources:

It will conflict with all mods that do the same.

Thank you so much, i think the scales ruined the mermaids, the scales looked ugly on the human sims and it ruined the outfit the sim was wearing (like if she was wearing a skirt or a shorts)

Thanks! I've never played a mermaid because those scales were awful and bound to ruin outfits.

Sadly it doesn't work for me. The scales do disappear, but so does the tail. Anyone else had that issue?

This is amazing, it works like a charm! At least, I just started in Bridgeport and don't have scales on my legs. Haven't tested out the actual tail yet.
I do have a question though, maybe someone knows. I hope someone does: is there also a fix that will allow mermaids to wear socks and stockings? Even with this mod enabled I cannot make my mermaid wear stockings and I downloaded some special ones so I hope I can get around that problem.

Does this mod allow you to wear socks again? (You can't wear them as a mermaid.) If not the mod should updated so you can wear socks again.
