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.
Hey guys, long time no see. Im not dead, Im just uploading my stuff in my official blog and tumblr only.
Ive been working really hard on something I thought EA missed: mermaid tails for infants.
So yhea, its finally done and ready to be downloaded by hundreds of fantasy addicteds like myself :-)
Please read the notes > before < download the content and have fun!

0o NOTES o0

-You have 2 files inside each download: you have a mod for invisible feet, and you have the mermaid tail for toddlers/ children (you can download one or both ages, but you HAVE to install the invisible feet to make the tails work properly);
- Children and toddlers with the mermaid tail wont have the same actions as real mermaids in the game, because these ARE JUST clothing and they wont turn your sims into real mermaids. For example, these tails are just like normal shorts that you have available for children, they dont have anything "magical about them";
- You need the Island Paradise EP to use these, sorry (although Im not sure if it might work or not with the base game only, if somebody try, let me know please);
- If you wish to talk to me or report an error, do it via tumblr if possible (check the link in my signature), cause now-a-days I hardly check my messages on MTS;
- You may recolor and modify the mesh and textures, no need to ask me, but please give me credit
- The tail is recolorable, and you have only one mesh for female/male

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

F*cking bad translators.
Alright, there is a 'How To Install' section on the download. If you follow the instructions in the link, you can potentially place your tails on your floor, or install the mod correctly.
Just, don't double post please.

This is awesome, tysm for uploading! Kinda dumb how EA didn't make it so toddlers and kids can turn into mermaids in the water, too.
