Good news, I got bit by the Sims bug again!

Bad news, in the midst of making a buttload of Medieval and passably-Medieval accessories, my hard drive failed. (Well, it's a six-year-old computer and this is the first real problem it's ever given me. I really don't feel TOO bad.) I'm on the laptop, which runs Sims but not well, and anyway doesn't have everything installed because last time I simmed on this machine, I was making custom CAS sets. I WILL be replacing the hard drive, which doesn't look all that difficult, and I was able to back up most of my data (I hope to be able to grab the rest of it, I just haven't, yet), but I'm not sure exactly when I'll be able to get everything together. Fall is one of those 'oh god, so busy' times for me.

Because I know people get concerned and it's been about a year since she got sick, state of the cat! )

Okay, so if you're not curious about the cat, you can skip that part and go straight to the downloads. Depending on when I can get a new hard drive, this and a tiiiiny hair dump may be the last from me for a while; it's harder to work Body Shop hotkeys on the laptop, and actually trying to run the game makes my poor little 'oh I only need it for travel, it doesn't have to be a powerhouse' laptop run hot enough to keep soup warm.



Before we duck behind the cut, I want to say that recolors of these accessories are TOTALLY welcome. Just be sure to credit not only the Simmers involved but also the folks who made the original replicas, if you recolor the replica jewelry. And maybe link me? I do so love shiny things. ALSO! Don't do paysites; some stuff uses Pooklet and Aelia's actions and they say no; most of the rest is photoskinned replica jewelry and while having pixel versions for Sims might count as parody or fair use (because it's educational!), only the jewelers are legally entitled to make money off their hard work.

Fair warning: you cannot layer glasses-bin accessories that use the same mesh (which I didn't know when I started this project). You get one shot with each mesh, no matter what I do to the bin numbers. Ordinarily this doesn't matter, but with the alpha-editable Liana Sims set, things get a little limited unless you can use Bon Voyage jewelry to layer different earrings and necklaces. Once you can do that, the mesh matters less than the jewelry type.

Tl:dr: Glasses-bin, one item per mesh even if it's otherwise layerable; BV Jewelry, one item per jewelry type per Sim.

Also, due to my current reduced computing circumstances, I can't actually check that I got the BV jewelry binned right. Would that I could! If I put things somewhere where they don't belong, let me know and I'll fix it. (Likewise let me know if I mangled any links. Happens, sometimes.)

Well, let's stop dithering and get to downloading! Twenty-Seven accessories lurk behind this cut! )

Thank you for reading and for downloading! If you've made it all the way down here, I have one last thing to mention: because I have to buy a new hard drive, I have to rattle the tip jar.






If you want to chip in to help make my new hard drive a kickass hard drive, or maybe to get the last two gigs of RAM my desktop has room for, or to help me get the parts I need to finish refurbishing my kiln, or even if you just want to throw loose change at me while shouting to post pictures of my cat, I would dearly appreciate it. (Also, I'm willing to exchange requests within my skillset for $5-minimum donations-- it's not pay content because everybody gets to download it for free in the end. Message (OpenID PMs should work) or email me at almightyhat AT yahoo.com to hash out details if you're interested.)

Usually, when you're looking for clothing for your Sims, the only category where you don't have any problems finding a a good variety for all categories (but especially Casual and Formal) is Adult Female. For themed games, this is particularly true-- there are lots and lots of meshes for Medieval, Victorian, futuristic, steampunk, post-apocalyptic, classical Greek, whatever kind of ladies you can name... but good luck finding anything for toddlers or old men.

Weirdly, when it comes to Vikings, the womenfolk are a little bit left out. There are plenty of nifty, historically accurate (or at least plausible) recolors of Iamliz13's Rus Viking Tunic, and even age conversions for toddler through teen, but the Viking ladies get left out.

When I found a nifty mesh by Trapping, I knew I had to at least give it a try.
