[personal profile] hat_plays_sims
Since I currently tend toward Medieval Sims, I've discovered I really like taking some of the high-tech crap Sims 2 provides us with-- like Servos-- and making them work in more period neighborhoods. Alien abduction is no exception, but it's also an easy one to 'fix'-- Sims who are abducted by aliens in a Medieval game can simply have been... well. Stolen by the Fairies. (Fairies can have flying saucers, apparently. Why not?)

I WAS using the Ivory Tattoo skin by Chakaru as my alien default with Rensim's Retooled Aqua eyes, and Pirate McSkittles as my PT. However, while Pirate puts out cute kids, I was not pleased with the fact that they were all related. There's no way to create a thriving hybrid community in your neighborhood. That, and remembering an interesting detail from Lords and Ladies, a Discworld novel...

Well.

I've always been more ambitious than I am smart.


Up the airy mountain,
Down the rushy glen,
We dare not go a-hunting
For fear of little men...


With this mod in place, your Sims will be randomly ravished and magically impregnated by one of eight elves, fae, fairies, shining ones, sidhe... For the sake of a pretty and yet streamlined thread, they are pictured here WITH custom content. Below their portraits are LINKED images as you'll get them (in base-game clothing and hair) and views of their offspring at various ages... if they managed to have any. I playtested EXTENSIVELY, but after twenty-two babies, my game crashed and I couldn't get pics of all of them.

The Optional Memory Mod



This mod is a simple text fix. It replaces the text and icons of any memories involving alien abduction-- positive, negative, family member abducted, alien abduction scholarship-- with something a little more period and a little more magical. The cartoony flying saucer is replaced with a greenish pointed ear. This one is very simple to use; just drop it in your Downloads folder, and if you hate it, pull it out. I forgot to nab pics of this one. Be surprised!


HOW TO USE A MULTIPLE POLLINATION TECHNICIAN MOD

Saying 'drop it in your downloads' folder is too simple, really, even if that's what it amounts to.

The PT mod comes in three separate folders for eyes, skins, and the mod itself. For the mod to work, you need all of those installed. I did not make a No-CC version of this mod, but if you want to, you're welcome to.

If you decide you no longer want this mod installed, but you've already got half-fae kids running around your neighborhood? ONLY remove the file called "MOD Stolen by Fairies Multi PT by Almighty Hat" (or whatever you rename it if that's too long for you). Leave the individual Sim files, the skins, and the eyes, in your game. Otherwise, you'll end up with broken genetics on your kids. Broken genetics contribute to eventual BFBVFS syndrome.

THESE SIMS WILL SHOW UP IN YOUR SIM BIN. Do not delete them from the Sim bin. I do not know what that will do, but I doubt it would be very good at all.

ISSUES

They call it 'sadorandom' for a reason. I tested this mod EXTENSIVELY, got twenty-two kids, crashed my game, and Ainsel still hadn't impregnated anyone yet... and Mallebron had done it seven times. It's random-- it is NOT broken. If it seems like, for example, Briary is dominating your gene pool? She probably is. Chaos sucks.

Corrigan produces silly-looking kids, but she's meant to look more like a pixie.

Lankin produced one homely daughter, but I have great hope for his sons. Also I never saw her as an adult-- she might look okay.


NOTES

On Compatibility:
Hair and skin on the PTs you actually get is (to the best of my knowledge and PLEASE tell me if there's a problem) base game only, so if you can use a multi-PT mod, you can use THIS multi-PT mod.

Skins are compatible with Bloom's Sexy Feet and Warlokk's XHiRes default shapes as well as regular Maxis nudes. Elders share the same body textures as adults and teens. Yes, these have nipples; no, they don't have any other good parts.

This mod works with Tom420's Male and Female Alien Impregnation hack over on MTS; I have heard other hacks that allow for both genders getting probed... er, carried off and ravished... can conflict with multi-PT mods, so I recommend that one.

You can have as many PTs from multi-PT mods in your game as you want, but you can only have ONE mod in at a time. Don't screw up.



Credits and Acknowledgments:

I owe a lot of people thanks and links for this mod, including...

Simgaroop for her easy-to-follow AND entertaining tutorial on making your own Multi-PT mod here...

Mouseyblue for her Bare Faced Skins, which I used as my alien skin bases, and for her very open policy. Bare Faced Skins are available here...

Rensim for her Retooled Eyes: Extras, three of which I used for my PTs (which are technically uploaded Sims and thus okay under her policy). You can find the full Retooled Eyes: Extras set here in case you want the red and/or yellow...

Oddysey for his eight-PT version of the Multi-PT mod; four just wasn't enough fairies for my tastes. Oddysey's mod is available here...

Bloom for offering UV maps for his Sexy Feet, without which I would be a very sad, frustrated Hat...

Fwiffo for first conceiving of the idea of a multiple PT mod...

And Quaxi for SimPE, without which we would all be stuck with whatever EA gave us.

I also owe a couple of thank-yous to Terry Pratchett. No, really-- his fairies in the Discworld novel 'Lords and Ladies' have copper-based blood (they couldn't have iron-based blood the way humans do, or they wouldn't have that classic fae sensitivity to iron). Oxygenated iron-based blood is red, giving pale humans a rosy look, so oxygenated copper-based blood would turn... turquoise, giving pale fae a greenish look. The whole project kind of kicked off from that surprisingly science-based observation.

The works of William Shakespeare provided most of my names; a google search for 'fairy names' handled most of the rest. 'Briary' comes from a short play I saw many, many years ago at RenFaire; Briary was a changeling. The spelling of Auberon and last name Vertdubois came from a short story I read ages ago; I can't recall what it was but I think it was in one of Marion Zimmer Bradley's Sword and Sorceress books. If you read a story where Auberon St. Vertdubois marries Jonet Ellen Bellamy, that's where the name comes from.

POLICY

Uh... I dunno what you could do with this, really, but my usual policy is 'do whatever the heck you want.' I'd appreciate a link back; this was not a small project. If you use the skins for something, link to Mouseyblue's skins, too, and don't muck around with the eyes-- Rensim allows them to be uploaded with Sims, which... technically is all I've done with them. They're included for convenience's sake only.

There's a read-me included with my policy on TSR and paysites, but in general? Don't. Tis rude.

This is great!!! Almost exactly what I was thinking of! After Stephanie uploaded her Medieval 'hood, I decided to revamp my DL folder and switch out modern for ancient! But I started thinking that the modern day Farstar telescope just wouldn't work for our Medieval simmies. And I also found Fwiffo's mod for the 4 multi-PTs and then Odyssey's expanded 8 PTs. I was so excited thinking we could have faeries, wood nymphs, trolls, satyrs, etc... abducting our sims. I took my thoughts to Stephanie and she in turn sent me to you! ;)
I don't know if you mesh or not, I haven't attempted that yet! (I want to~just scared!!!) Anyway, I haven't checked out ALL your goodies yet, but wanted to know if you have made something "medieval" to replace the telescope? I haven't been able to think of something the sims could "do" to "call" the aliens ( I mean faeries!) but I've been thinking maybe a special tree or a Celtic Circle or something like that. Also, is it possible to change the UFO into something like I was thinking maybe Grandmother Willow from Disney's Pocahontas. A wonderful picture is here http://photobucket.com/images/Grandmother%20Willow/?sortby=sevendaysview top row on the right! Instead of being "abducted" by a space ship, wouldn't be cool if they get ubducted by a mystical tree in the forest!
Anywho...I don't know if any of this is possible or not, or if it's already been done and I just haven't found it yet. Anything you could tell me would be great!
Anxious to hear back from you!
Thanks, G-Knee

Couple Quick Questions

From: [identity profile] morgaine2005.wordpress.com
Hiya, Hat!

I had a crazy brainwave this morning for more Albion weirdness, but before I actually did anything in-game, I wanted to check things out with you. First, to see if doing this is asking for a BFBVFS, and if it's ok with you, since I'm piggybacking off your creativity.

If you want my crazy idea in all its glory, you can read all about it here (http://morgaine2005.wordpress.com/2010/06/11/the-origin-of-species-part-three/). To make a very long post short, however, what I want to do is this: take your very pretty Multi-PT Sims, doll 'em up, and make them Downtownies. I will not be removing these Sims from the Sim-Bin, just cloning them. Secondly, I want to use your names for them. My questions are:

1) Is this going to result in a BFBVFS?
2) Is it ok with you if I , um, "borrow" your ideas in this way?

Thanks for answering, and hope everything is going well with you! :D

Hat, these are positively wonderful. They remind me of Shakespearean fairies, the ones who are equal parts beautiful, mysterious, and dangerous. I can also see that I will definitely need horses in my game soon. (That burgeoning DL folder is just going to have to hold it ALL!)

One question: are the skins default too? I did go over and dl mouseyblue's skins--will these show up automatically on our new fae? (how delightful!) Also, will I need to remove the dowdy old green Maxis PT? Or will he fade into the background once these lovelies enter my DL folder? And--(sorry for all the foolish curiosity here)--will the Fae PT show up in the family tree?

Many Thanks!

This is awesome

Hello there :)

First of I wanted to congratulate you for this awesome idea and the beautiful fairies. I kind of envy you for this creativity and the ability to accomplish what crossed your mind.
I find the idea to have my dear sims abducted and ...erm... impregnated on a 'natural' way by fairys much more appealing than to have aliens do tests on them. And I don't even play in a medieval setting.

Still I have some questions before I go and use this - since it is a debug. I haven't used one yet, since I fear to be not skillful enough to just remove those debugs later, when I perhaps want to have back the "original" way.
Is it possible in any way to have those lovely fairy PTs in my game without removing the possibility to get abducted by aliens? So... my sims could get abducted by aliens or fairies? (I'm sorry to bother you with such a stupid question, but... I dunno... I kind of like the ugly alien-ducklings, too... but fell madly in love with your fairys and the idea...)

Also, if i got it correctly (and I am not entirely sure since english is not my mother-tongue) the fairies will not have the same hair and clothes as on your pictures. But they will be in the Sim-Bin, right? Do you perhaps know where you got the hair and clothes? I think about having a fairy city and (if you wouldn't tell me not to do it? Is it okay for you?) I would like to have your fairies as a "royal family" of sorts.
I hope I made myself understandable. Thank you for your answer in advance.

greetings
Airi

Hi there. Thanks this is wonderful! I love it. I was wondering if there was a way to have the same thing but for plant sims. Can they have a love affair with a nature fairy and spawn nature fae? I'd also like to be able to make my own replacements for this and the plant. Not that I don't love yours but you know...I wanna make my own too. Could you provide this or send me where I can get it?

Offspring

From: (Anonymous)
Hello again,

I am back with more snapshots of Kassidy. First of a closer picture of her baby-face: http://i55.tinypic.com/14b2clh.jpg
By now she is toddler (http://i52.tinypic.com/2j34rc3.jpg , http://i54.tinypic.com/2m5h3cz.jpg) and she got her fairy-mother's red hair and her face, I guess :) She's such a darling!
Surprisingly Keira was abducted _again_, while her husband and her sister failed. I guess your fairies took a liking to her? Well, she is pregnant again and happy (and her husband is surely not so happy, since he wanted to impregnate her himself, finally) and of cause I will continue to provide you with snapshots.

greetings,
Airi

From: (Anonymous)
So, here I am, with little time to play sims, but always with time to take snapshots.
(I could post you tons of them, but I always pick just the most interesting ;))
I didn’t play with Liam and Kessidy yet. But when I do I will work hard on better snapshots of Liams face. I also think that he might get to be quite handsome. The only problem is that I cannot get close enough to his face. It only works with toddlers when they are cuddled, or with newborns when being played with. Annoys me a great deal.
But I have also more pleasurable news. My pregnant male finally he gave birth to a little boy! I named him Tyron, since it had a nice ring to it and also sounds foreign enough to me, to be a bit alien.
Oh, and he is the Mallebron’s offspring :D Hurray for that, I really love his face (Though I think Titanias and Robins Offspring you had were even more beautiful)

So, this is him as a newborn:
http://i53.tinypic.com/245eidg.png (you see his Daddy’s green fingers? I made dad snapshot while Tyron was born), http://i52.tinypic.com/2wpicme.jpg

And this is him as a toddler:
http://i52.tinypic.com/vys86x.jpg (just at his birthday, that’s why his clothes and hair are a bit annoying)
http://i53.tinypic.com/15yupax.jpg And did you notice? He has fairy-ears! :D I’m so happy!

A few questions

Date: 2011-05-11 05:32 am (UTC)
From: (Anonymous)
If we only want some of the fairies you've made abducting and impregnating, will deleting the unwanted fairies from the bin work? (My medieval kingdom has a really specific face type, cause I'm really looks-oriented >.<)
And, just to make sure, when we take out the 'take out' file to end the mod, it'll go back to normal (say, if I'm playing with someone I want to have an ALIEN baby), but when I want fairies again, I just put the file back in?
With your mod in place, will using the boolprop "make me alien pregnant" cheat result in a fairy baby?

All that being asked, thank you so much for this mod. It's beautiful and creative and wonderful!

Back again

Hello there, it's Airi.

Sorry for not posting this long. My computer crashed and it did take a while to reinstall everything. I had a back-up, so nothing was lost. I also had to remove the mods while reinstalling so I couldn't play in families in which mods were used. I didn't want to disturb things. By the way, those this mod work for all expansion-packs? I got Bon Voyage new now.

But back to the important stuff: pictures.
This is Liam as a newly grown up teen: http://i51.tinypic.com/157ow0m.jpg
I think you're right. He is getting quite handsome.
And he got a little brother by now. I found a mod to make the fairy-abduction happening more often.
His name is Owen, he is again Lord Lankin Orens spawn. (Quite the man, Lord Lankin) And he got his face, i guess, his ears and even his hair-color! http://i51.tinypic.com/102mavr.jpg
My most succesfull spawn by now, I think.

So now I'm off to play again. I'll make Liam move to university and move in with his sister. So, Young Adult fairy-spawns soon! Yaye!

Airi

Thanks for this wonderful mod! This is much more fitting for my medieval neighbourhood than Maxis Aliens!

(I also posted this at the Plumb Bob Keep, where I discovered this great mod, but I think you might be more likely to see it here)

Is it possible to customize this mod further and use different eyes and skintones? As far as I understand it, the custom content isn't used in the actual mod file. Is that true? If yes, it should be possible to change the genetics of the sims in SimPE. Do I have to change anything else? Or will this blow up my game?

Thanks for your help!

Hi! I absolutely love this mod, and I have no idea why, but it plumb doesn't work for me.

Custom Clothing & Hairs Shown Above On PT's?

Date: 2015-04-07 07:36 pm (UTC)
From: (Anonymous)
I absolutely love this mod. I really do. It removes the gross PT defaults and replaces them with something much more period appropriate, not to mention gorgeous. The only 'problem' (I put quotes around "problem" because it's probably less of an actual problem and more of my own stupidity getting in the way) I'm facing is how to customize the PT's clothing and hair. I know that they are downloaded with the base game hairs and clothing, but is there any way for me to change these so that when looking at their portraits in the family tree, they are pictured with the custom hairs and clothing shown in the above post? I know this is several years too late, and there is most likely a really obvious answer, but I would really appreciate any suggestions you can give me.
Thanks Hat! :)

Colours Of Skins On A Different Set?

Date: 2015-05-16 12:21 am (UTC)
From: (Anonymous)
I really like the skins you made for you PT's. I would put them in my game, except I already have a set of skins I love and I want all of them to be consistent. I've taken it upon my inexperienced self to create an alien skin set that matches my default replaced S1-S4's. The only thing I have a problem with is how to take the colour of your skins and put them onto mine. As in, taking the greyish-green skin tint and putting it onto the skins I already have. I've already tried messing with tints, filters, and hue/saturation in Photoshop, but all that produced was a gross-looking Maxis match type skin. I hope this isn't too vague, but I'm not really sure how to describe what I mean. Thanks for any help or feedback you can give me in advance :)

Sims Aren't Being Impregnated After Abduction

A while back, I decided to use this mod as the template for the one I intended to make. Following Fwiffo's and Simgaroop's tutorials, I was able to create the mod successfully. It worked without any problems for a while, but now it doesn't (at all). I tested a few different mods and played through the abduction sequence numerous times, but pregnancy did not occur once. It's like the aspect of pregnancy is disabled completely. What can I do to fix this problem? Thank you in advance.
