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 all!

Something a little different from me :-)
I don't know how many of you played The Sims 2, but anyways there was an AWESOME creator called Aikea Guinea, who made so much quality content. I feel the game is empty without her stuff, and I'm sure many of you will agree! So here is my contribution with one of my favourite textures that she did.
Here is a link to the original for The Sims 2 by: Aikea Guinea

The textures have been edited to fit the new mesh, but the texture work is entirely Aikea Guinea's. I just cleaned things up a bit and fitted them in place.


Also a special shout out to Sifix who looked at the mesh for me as I was having trouble with seams, that is why I have made this outfit with boots attached, because I had to make it with one cut number due to the issue, but it's fine now. If anyone wants a version with shoes, just let me know and I can do this :-)

I made a sim in The Sims 2: Viktor Gray, and he wore this outfit, and I decided to recreate him in The Sims 4, that's how I got about converting this texture. Link to The Sims 2 version of my Viktor Gray can be found in the related downloads.

I felt this deserved special treatment, so I've created two new meshes! The outfit mesh is a complete edit of the base game long coat. I remapped parts of the uv and added a pair of base game boots to the mesh also. The Top hat is a reshaped version of the sims top hat. I was originally going to recolour PralineSims top hat, but it wasn't mapped out for a pattern to be added. So I made this one quite similar, but the uv is mapped out so that details can be put around it. The hat has a shadow map as well, I just imported one from the game and it works perfectly!

Outfit Category: Full body outfit. Found in: everyday, formal, party, career, retail, hot weather, cold weather.

Aikea Guinea's policy allows people to modify her work and share it, so I'm not breaking her TOU sharing this :-)

Thanks so much for your post. I'd suggest you reconsider referring folks to TSR though. I hadn't been there for a few years, and with all the pernicious ads, it was like being consigned to the seventh circle of Dante's hell. But even so, I very much appreciate your gift.

Thank you! I know exactly what you mean about TSR, I’ve never seen as many ads on a website lol! I wouldn’t know another link to point to.

Hey! I love all your work! Especially the GOT series! I'm from China, and I really want to share your creations to Chinese players since they couldn't visit foreign websites. Of course I will give you credit and attach your link.
Best wishes!

I gotta say...I've actually been playing TS2 more in recent months, and I've got a ton of Aikea Guinea's creations. Pretty much every age group for both genders has a lil something of hers to wear, and I'm loving how this one turned out–it's absolutely perfect for the somewhat gothic, Rockin' 80s wild children I'm about to create, even if it's just their formal wear! Great job, and I'd love to see more of her stuff converted, if the need ever strikes ya again!
