HugeLunatic's Seahorse Add-Ons

Here are three add-ons for HugeLunatic's seahorse wall deco. I've made a reversed seahorse and two half-size seahorses.
All three add-ons are slaved to the original seahorse mesh.



With HugeLunatic's permission, my edited version of her mesh is included. It was a very small edit -- I added ##0x1C050000! to the filename in the package so that the slaves would pick up the texture.
* HugeLunatic has let me know that her original mesh works as it is. If you already have hers, you can just delete the edited one I included in the download before putting the slaves and recolors in your game. I edited the file that was in my to-do folder for years.



I've included four recolors featuring seahorses.



Credits:
HugeLunatic for permission and the great help she gave me when I started this endeavor. Also, after years of invisible meshes and game crashes, the tutorial that finally taught me to slave objects.
MustLuvCatz for her help when I started this endeavor.
Michelle has made lovely recolors for us to use.
Recolor textures are from Barneby Gates and Kerry Caffyn wallpapers.
Walls used are by LinaCherie.

I really like this sculpture, and have wanted a reversed version ever since it was released. The smaller version makes it even better. Thank you for making this; I'm definitely going to have a go at some beachy-driftwood-weathered, peeling paint recolours.
Me? Sarcastic? Never.

Do you know what you changed? Because my original works fine with your add ons and recolors? As far as I can see my package was made properly with the ##0x1C050000! prefix. Are you sure you didn't accidentally edit my original mesh when making yours?

I'm not sure. I used the seahorse file that was in the folder from when I started doing this years ago. That one didn't have the ###---- bit in the file name where the tutorial said to make sure it did.
I forgot to give you credit for the tutorial I used, too. Slaving never made sense or worked for me until I found the tute on your blog.
I will change my description to say that everyone can use your original mesh if they already have it.

I think you mean MIchelle for the recolors. (Although I did make some years ago, along with a mirrored version, that I never shared AND lost.)

Oh! I'm getting everything wrong. Did I put your name and her link? I better go see what I did and fix that.
But, you did help me around 10 years ago it seems when I made the first one. I was having troubles making the shadows work and when I asked for help you and HugeLunatic helped me figure that much out.
Then my folder got lost in the shuffle from pc to pc for years.

****I fixed it so the link has Michelle's name on it. Geez, I feel so brilliant. Now, I'm scared to upload the mesh I made for sims out enjoying the spring in their gardening.

Thanks Deatherella. I was just trying to see where I went wrong so I could fix the original as well, but couldn't find the issue.

Please do upload the new mesh! If your memory isn't quite right, we can help sort things out. When you start digging through old WIPs, it's hard to remember all the details.
