[personal profile] hat_plays_sims
So, aside from my main stickypost, I have a Hair To-Do List, a Pregmorph Reference List, and a Hats and Headwear Resource/Wishlist. This post is going to be MOSTLY a wishlist, but secondarily a resource post, partlyy because I want to kind of streamline my main wishlist. If I put all my clothing conversion wishes in there, I'd be... Well, I'd have a very long and untidy wishlist.

Age Conversions

The thing about clothing patterns in the Middle Ages is that they were very, very similar for everybody. A shirt was essentially a shift, cut shorter, a robe and a gown could be the same garment depending on the sex of the wearer, children wore simplified versions of adult clothing, and everybody wore hats. If you were still growing, your clothing was made so that you could grow into it, because it was expected to last for years-- or there was no point in wasting the time it would take to make it by hand.

Since I'm actually trying to streamline how many meshes I have in my game, this is going to turn into a list of 'basic' Medieval meshes that could stand to be shifted to different ages. The meshes I personally desperately need will be marked with a *star*-- or a whole string of stars, if I'd be willing to give my eyeteeth or firstborn for the conversion.

To BU
Pick a baby gown, any baby gown, and I want Cynnix's coif added to it. Included in the zip are meshes by Bloom, Tenshii Akari, Chris Hatch, I think TheRaven... I'll figure out the gender-separated stuff myself, but I want cute little caps on my babies sometimes.
Download Mesh under 'Decently Covered' or 'I Got Better.'
Beth provides and I got to work! More outfits soon, and blessings on the head of Chris Hatch for making non-default baby clothes a possibility.

Custom Body Shapes


I have two problems with using custom body shapes: one, I can never find enough Medieval clothing meshes to make me happy, and two, when you find a great female shape, there's almost never a male counterpart to go with it. I don't hold with pairing RenGal with Bodybuilders or custom female shapes with default Maxis men. Really, there are only three custom bodyshapes I want in my game, and they hearken back to the old Sims 1 days of Fat, Fit, and Skn.

For slenderness, gender-ambiguity, and women dressing as men to run away, run away and join the army, run away and go for a sailor, et cetera, I want Aquilegia's Androgyny in my game.

For strength, for knights and blacksmiths and... yep, also women who run away to pursue masculine pursuits, or who just help their fathers around the forge, I want a combination of Jaccirocker's Runner for men and Marvine's Athletic Girl for women. (A showerproof skintone combo was in the works, but Jacci is having some medical problems. I don't mind waiting for her.)

For well-fed lords, healthy ladies, stout bakers, busty wenches, and the like, the body shape I want doesn't exist yet. Basically I want something one step up from the Maxis fat morph, with sexyfeet, an even fatter fatmorph, and I don't mind if there isn't an elder shape if there's a child shape. For the purposes of this wishlist, I'm calling them the Hypothetical Heavyweights. (For a female shape, either Dr. Pixel's Well-Rounded Sim or Cynnix's Warlokk RenGal V2 would work-- I'd even use both, if both had male counterparts.)

I was going to make a very comprehensive list linking every mesh I want adapted to every age and shape, but that list had a LOT of repeats in it. As with age conversions, there are really only so many different meshes that need to be converted to make a bodyshape Medievally playable, so I'm going to start with the ones that would need to be converted to all the bodyshapes (for the applicable age and gender), then list the meshes that each specific age/gender/bodyshape combo calls for. If this is super-confusing please let me know and I'll figure out some other way to do it. It took me three days to figure this out, collect all the links, and code this and the pregmorph database/wishlist. (No Castaways Stories meshes are listed here, but if you wanted to do them for custom body shapes, you can get all the native meshes here and here and here. You would have my gratitude, but I'm already begging for sexyfeet and/or pregmorphs added to all those meshes, and I don't expect anyone else is as in love with Castaway Stories as I am.) I'll mark the meshes I most desperately want converted with a *star*. (As far as I'm concerned, a usable Medieval bodyshape clothing kit consists of the starred meshes under the All Shapes headers plus Tiggerypum's Alpha Tunic, which I already have for seven of the eleven shapes I'd want it converted to fit. ... Most people don't need the ninjas and plantsims. I love plantsims probably more than is good for me, and my clergysims (plus any orphaned or unwanted children handed over to the church) wear the ninja outfit, as it is perfectly egalitarian.)

You've probably already noticed, but Cynnix updated their version of Iamliz13's alpha dress yesterday, here: http://www.medievalsims.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=65&t=4082&p=52114&sid=0e058c5402c22a5fa01dd3497b9a4adc#p52114

The parsim ren gown for AF, what is it about it that you want changed? I've been working on some recolours and have discovered that the TF mesh is mapped differently and I can't texture link it to AF files because they look borked. So it might be easier to edit the AF mesh?

Ah yeah the bust, I've noticed that before, but not the waist (just had another look at it... can completely see what you mean now lol)... there is a marked shape difference between the AF and EF versions (the elder version is loose around that area and the bust is normal elder size). I could probably fix that stuff on the AF mesh (I want to convert it anyway to replace the teen one so I can texture reference, so I might as well fix the adult version).

That's ok :) Ah that's always..... fun. Only just got back into paying attention/making things myself... had a long sabbatical (namely other PC games lol).

I think I'll leave it as it is, it doesn't look too bad since given there's a pregnancy bump, it's not corseted. Well better just check it doesn't look too odd... there were some vertices doing odd things round there :/

Also, the mesh was built off that maxis dress mesh (long loose) the one with the dodgy mapping around the waist... I might try and see if I can fix that, although mapping is not my forte but it bugs me that it doesn't align.

Haha yeah, when I convert things to elder I tend to give them bras lol.

True, very corseted or structured meshes (the alpha one by sim ages for example) I figure an elder would be using the same undergarments so I tend to use those for both, or very baggy things (nightdresses for example but there is a lack of good medieval/fantasy sleepwear meshes for elders).

I've imported the AF into the original mesh package but I can make it a stand alone mesh pretty easily. The TF version is mapped so vastly differently that it would break so many recolours that I will probably have to make the conversion from AF a new mesh.

Ha yeah. The elder underwear looks weird juxtaposed with the saggy-ness. Ahh I see. I kinda like the elder shape apart from the sagging (and elder male aside from the skinny legs) Sometimes I think EA have no concept of what real bodies look like :/

Reminds me that I need to get back onto the bodyshape I was working on (a sorta slimmer rengal with less boobage). I started converting the peasant sleeve dress the other week (the one sherahbim's maiden and fairytale dresses are on) but predictably I got side tracked by another project. Namely the fairytale dresses for children et al in curiousb's colours with different coloured trims and underdresses.

Yes, indeed... I actually have an EF mesh by aligeth that's a nightgown that I made show up for adults because it looks more believable. Shame there's only one recolour. Hmm wonder if there's any meshes that are close enough to medieval sleepwear that I could edit a bit.

Checked the recolours up on parsim (recent ones), zoej's nightgowns and sherahbim's gwynimean gown in milkshape and they all seem fine on the AF, since it was mostly just the waist line I fixed and neatened up. I can send over the edited file though if I've missed anything you want to check?

Yeah I agree... it looks like EF and AF have different bone structure.

http://oph3lia.dreamwidth.org/37367.html I smoothed it out a bit, there's some pics somewhere on my DW but I can't find them lol. I wish I knew how to add new vertices to a body mesh so I could smooth some areas out more but alas that and bone assignments are not things I can do.

Ah that sounds incredibly useful! Also as a resource for age converting/adding morphs if that hasn't been done too. Even if I am woefully slow at shape converting lol. Some of the older meshes have terrible recolours from what I recall :/ Ha Midsimmer Night's Dream - the fingers on that elven style mesh for AF are borked to buggery. Am tempted to fix them though, quite like the shape of the dress. Don't really use much else from that other than that male mesh you used for the heraldry.

I'll have a poke about on parsimonious and check. I think I'll leave them as replacements then. The AF mesh has a pregnancy morph (and so will the TF conversion I'm making of it).

Indeed, also... who wears heeled shoes to bed? lol. I hardly use it these days but I do love the recolour sherahbim made for it (then again I have all of her stuff pretty much, it might not be accurate but it's so pretty!) Also on the sherahbim front, I've nearly wrapped up a large-ish project I've been working on.

Would have replied sooner had my broadband not gone down for 2 days :/ It's amazing how lost you can feel without the net in this day and age lol

Yeah I don't have anything to use with the rengal (although I saw Cynnix was working on a brawny knight shape? I think that works pretty well with the ren). I was thinking of that athletic guy http://www.insimenator.org/index.php/board,160.0.html (I've always liked that shape, its not too muscular and I don't like muscly men so I don't use any of the bigger male shapes at all) would be a good pairing, but it needs massively updating and I'm not so good with male meshes. Heck I don't even know how to make showerproof stuff for the shape I'm working on lol.

Indeed... meshes for all!

Ahh, I get the 2 projects mixed up in my head. Yeah, they are... I think the textures are more bothersome for me, since meshes I can mangle somewhat (although tbh these days with all the great medieval content on plumbbob keep and whatnot don't really use them) but I suck at textures (unless I can cobble together bits of other peoples and even then, it's not really something I have a talent for). For some reason there seems to be a lack or rather has been a lack of good execution of medieval stuff. Quite a few good medieval creators about now though.

Hmm, not sure I only use Aligeth's medieval style nightgowns... maybe it's one of her others; had a look but not sure. I've seen plenty of modern nightwear clipping beds too though.

Yep, I have that... I stuck blockfeet on the mesh (which I need to remember to put up, since I think I'm not the last blockfoot mesh user... maybe? lol)

I've got 2 parts of it up now... it's basically Sherahbim's outfits (a considerable amount of them) on other ages (well mostly teen and elder). With a few new meshes where teen and elder versions were lacking and a bunch of texture linking. Also got some curious b recolours of some of them to post up afterwards and possible some texture mangling for a few new outfits (still seeing what works and what doesn't at the moment).

Also my brain has now decided it wants to do NPC replacements as well which might take some time. Sunni has some good ones up and I use some of them but there's a few bits here and there I'd like to do differently... maybe knight outfits for firefighters and police (either the plate armour from OFB or the chainmail outfits from EA store now that there's female conversions)... not sure what to do about mascots but I don't think cow and llama costumes work for me in a medieval setting. Maybe satyrs or something.... lol.

Yeah, it's amazing how long it can take to get connected/re-connected when things go wrong. I've been browsing on my smartphone but it's awkward to look at certain sites on mine (like DW) and I think I have too many apps for different things already. I don't know what these companies do half the time... seems to be red tape and things for everything.

I've avoided for the most part using bodyshapes before recently (as a lot of the meshes I didn't like for the shapes) but I did have the rengal, riogal, athletic girl and guy some time ago. All I have now is the odd androgyny mesh, athletic girl; and a ton of medieval rengal stuff but no actual sims using them. Can't call to mind what RNR is.

I quite like the look of the neanderthal, it's more stocky/bulky than did steroids to the max bulky lol. That reminds me of when someone brought out a bodyshape on insimenator with the hugest most unreal looking breasts I have ever seen... probably took out walls when they turned round! Was a biiiit disturbing lol. I don't tend to like bodyshapes thinner than maxis for some reason, they always look odd to me. Yeah, the faerie girl doesn't look like she has bones/organs in places lol. Um, yes they look like they might take peoples' eyes out lol. For some reason I am thinking of the shape of the elves in dragon age: origins, which I think looks faerie/elvish without being oddly proportioned. I remember looking at the WRS shape, as the teen version? was pretty much the maxis teen fat morph and I think they got a much better deal than any other age /gender with fat morphs. I recall the thighs on the adult clipped when they moved though. I have that mod waiting to be used... I still haven't set up a medieval hood... I've been planning it for a few years now but I am woefully slow at getting all the bits and pieces together for it.

The problem is, I have a tendency to make blockfoot versions as replacements and while that cuts down on recolouring for me, not sure it makes it much use to anyone wanting them for socks/shoes. I can make stand alone versions, it's just quicker to pull it into the same file. Think I have a few mesh edits hanging around to go up, plus the parsim mesh edits to finish and put up.

I saw those... I've been working on it for ages, so I'd already done some of them and I figured as mine were texture linked and hers not, I may as well put them up anyway. I had a look at them since some I hadn't done mesh wise; and not sure how to contact the creator but at least 2 of the teen meshes have exploding fat morphs and one has a disconnected neck on the fat morph. Ooh more nightwear... something there's not much of.

Oh god, d'uh! .... see my brain was running with "who would rescue people? knights!" Lol.... that's what I get for trying to do too much at once. You'd think after all the history shows I watch that kinda thing would stick in my head but apparently not. Yeah, I was considering them for mascots as the helm works like the llama/cow head things. I don't think there's teen versions of them though... weirdly I recently found toddler versions. Maybe the EA store ones would work for police. Ah heraldry... these kind of things make me wish I could actually draw beyond stick men lol. I was leaning towards sherahbim's textures with something to theme them. And then there's the career outfits too and I'm severely getting ahead of myself again.

Ah yes, I've seen that around. That sounds like something I shall poke about when it's up.

Yeah maybe something like an amazonian shape? Broad, stocky, muscular; more so than athletic girl? Damn my lack of bodyshape skills. I haven't even got one proper mesh for my shape yet beyond the nude (working on the peasant sleeves dress sherahbim used for her fairytale and maiden dresses in between everything else). That sounds like a nice shape, the ballet dancer one. Yeah I think that's what bothers me, when the assignments look wrong (otherwise I would want a dwarf shape) and body parts that clip.

Vacuum formed tops look weird. That was the biggest issue I found with warlokk's magnets (my bodyshape started out with maxis nude and warlokk's rengal magnets which I moved around; I tried to make some outfits but it messed up how dresses hung).

Some of them are, yes. The ones that exploded were, but I removed pretty much everything (it either duplicated stuff other creators had made that I had, or stuff I had made myself) except the juliette mesh conversion (that's the one with the neck issue on the fat morph) and the conversion of the meshes for faraday and moss as I hadn't finished doing them and they don't have morphs so no problems). Will have to send her a message, if I remember lol. Think I'm going down with a bug of some sort.

I wonder what would make a good replacement for fire fighters. Trying to think of what other male/female npc/work outfits share the same textures. They're YA but there's teen versions of the cheerleader outfit and there's the llama suit for teens which is used for one of the careers (um sport related one?) as a work outfit. Heard of those hacks but never used them, I quite like seeing my sims go off to work in a different outfit. Oooh default replacement careers, sounds good since without using any careers its a bit difficult to keep all sims busy.

Ah I will have to have a look around when I get round to it. Must finish all these sherahbim edits/recolours/texture referencing first though. And the parsimonious edits.

I come bearing a proposition!

I made those sexyfeet baby replacements, and then slapped some feet on Aligeth's AF chemise with Dicreasy's edit and Cynnix's TF conversion! Would all of this be something you're up to testing out? I don't have any babies or pregnant adults/teens in my game at the moment, so I would really appreciate an extra hand in checking on the baby meshes and if the pregmorphs are working with the feets. :)

Hooray!

They are stand-alone!

Thanks to Heget's madness I now need two separate versions of just about every mesh I use so I can have naked feet recolors AND stockings using blockfeet meshes. So, yeah.

Hi Hat, G-Knee again ;)

I notice that you haven't seen the teen male conversion of the SA nightshirt. It's at the same link as the adult.

There's also a kidlet version here: http://www.medievalsims.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=65&t=4330

Hi Hat!!!!!

I don't know if you're still active but I wanted to pop in and say hi to you.

Also I saw that you were interested in some combo skintones, I can do those in minutes. I'm not at the place where I can make new meshes yet, but I can poke SimPe with a pointy stick. So let me know what you are looking for. It's also super easy to make skintones out of any shape as long as there is a full body mesh. I know I linked it somewhere so I would be able to find it. Hope to hear from you soon. I know you were going thru family stuff, so I hope that's better.

Congrats on becoming an Aunt!!! It's the bees knees, I have 14 and 2 greats; 1 of each.

As far as the bodyshape a rounder one is the Well-Rounded sim by Dr. Pixel. It became my favorite and , so it became a mission to get everything going...as a matter of fact that's how I learned to make my very first mesh, skintone etc. I'd always been too wary of meshing and the complicated SimPe...Oh noooo, not for me.


A preview of the shape here:
http://geekygirlfun.wordpress.com/2009/07/31/say-all-i-need-showerproofskintones/

(and the a link to the skintone tut that I used, it really only takes minutes, but the link is apparently dead, I know that I'll need a quick refresher.)


I did do something for GoS advent, the same one as the Runner.

I also did a more petite shape based of Marvine Bouncy Dancer tester. That and Sussi got a shitload of meshes all together over a hundred I believe. I think that she'd be a good match for the runner, as she has a slightly more athletic build than EA default, but no where near as buff as the Athletic girl. As a matter of fact I do believe I have some skintones with the 2 MBD and Runner linked. I just hope I haven't lost them along with about 80% of all my simming stuff.


You can kinda get the idea from this post
http://digitaldollies.dreamwidth.org/10644.html#cutid1

I had also finished some requested meshes for a refreshing of the Athletic Guy, the very first shape Marvine made. Vanity deMise and I teamed up after the Runner shape. He's along the line of the Neanderthal but to me the shoulders and neck are more of my presence, I don't have any pictures of that one, because it's sort of on hold (2 years ago) But I do have the skintone linked I think to the WRS.

You can get the idea here:

http://www.backalleysims.com/adultsite/showthread.php?6098-Athlete-v2-testing

The AG/RnR combo can be done in a few moments, I have to get the bottom and top meshes for both. I know Vanity did use the Marvine feet for her AG. I like those for the reason that they are lower poly, however the mapping to totally different for the feet than either sexy feet or EAxis feet. I used the on the Runner meshes if that helps jog your memory.

I haven't seen the Burly guy, I do recall the Bear BB by Montoto, but the meshes aren't easy to find anymore.

-------------------
Had to stop for a phone interviw, and I now I lost my train of thought. But I did get the job !!! Yay me.

I think that I've rattled on way too long, but I've been holding in all of Simming talk, no one in the RL gets it...

I did stumble across a folder that says Me and Hat"s Massive Medieval project, a few days ago. Do you still play style. I have had much chance to play TS2 because it makes me want to make meshes so badly. But my Sims 3 keeps crashing and now it won't start. I said screw it and came back to the light side, but then I needed to get some new stuff, and now 6 days later I am still downloading. Haha

Well I'm going to eat some dinner, and I'll keep searching for that tutorial.

Awwww, I bet the itsby spider thing is so cute. And I'm the Aunt my case, and also the weird one too. I haven't had much time to see the greats because I lived around 250 miles away for the last 2 years. I'm finally back now, and we're getting to know each again. They are 6 and 3.

Now onto to the sims stuff. I was combing PBK just last night because G-Knee let me know she did a WRS mesh. I saw the BK, well sort of, it's hard to see him under the armor (?) Also the RG V2, but I couldn't find a shower proof skintone, I figure I'm not looking in the right place.

My God, are you thorough. I swear I learn new stuff every time you post. Those dresses are gorgeous and I want them, but I honestly know that I'd never use them. And the skintones, that's tons of work, thus we'll get this done so that it will work with what you've already done. Speaking of the skintone, that link took me to some weird video site I searched google for it everywhere, or any other tutorial that uses the binning method to do the skins. I'll keep looking around though. Duh, I'm a dunce, I didn't think of the wayback machine. I got a 503 error, so I'll try again later.

Hmmm, I don't think the RG and WRS are close enough to be interchangeable, but in terms of what type of meshes available for your playing style I totally agree. I haven't actually looked at RG V2 in milkshape, I plan on doing that a little later on today, probably after I go to sleep.

Speaking of which, I believe I'm just rambling now. So I'm going to try to lie down again.

Oh, one more thing I'm going to try to find that folder again and I see what goodies are in there.

I'm so sorry it took me so long to get back with you, my great uncle/dad/Bishop of our church died Thursday night and it's been pure hell. I know he's better off since e was 90 and wheel chair bound because his gout was so terrible. But he'd been everything I ever needed as far as a male figure in my life. And the last few years we were pretty much estranged so I have to deal with that as well. I got some good news the day of his burial though, my niece is having another baby ( she's the one with the great nephew) we're hoping for a girl.

Yes, please and thank you for the html file, I really need to throw myself into something until I start work. I've been working on my hand exercises more, because I feel the need to mesh again. I've gotten as far as getting a list together of what I'd like. LOL oddly all the talk of the WR made me want to revamp the whole shape again, using smooth hands/ neaten up the meshes/ add variety. And the the middle weight class that you were talking about has me intrigued TBQH, I've been looking around. If you have some reference pics of what you have in mind maybe you could send them my way.

Thank you and your niece for the smile, just reading about her brightened my night :)

Awesomesauce. For the first time in Blue Moon Mediafire actually worked., huzzah!

Aww, I bet that was so funny with your niece. My 6 (26 acting) niece did something similar Saturday night while we were having our version of an Irish wake. I didn't know she'd opened other apps on my phone, I'd already explained to her that I only have 2 or 3 games on my phone. She'd opened so many apps my phone literally shut off. It's a galaxy note 3, and believe you me I've put it through its paces. LOL. But changing the date was a doozy, you may have an geeky genius on your hands.

I did go browsing at the different sites, but maybe I missed what you were talking about, or in my mind it's something different.

Adding the the smooth hands literally took me 2 minutes (yes I did it as a test) no need for a new group or mapping or anything. I did have to do the vertice data merge on one of the meshes, but that just added maybe 2 more minutes. It took longer to build the mesh in SimPe to be honest, probably because I had forgotten a couple of steps, lol. I'm going in game to test them tomorrow, hopefully. I've been downloading for the last few days, but with Mediafire giving me fits, and having to unstall and reinstall all 3 browsers, clear cache, cookies etc. I discovered that I can download just fine using my cellular data, meaning it's an ISP issue...grrrrr

Either way I found a couple of my old neighborhoods where I really played and had a semi-legacy so I'm loading it up to see if I can snag the houses and/or sims. That should be fun :)
