Things I do not enjoy about aspects of Sims creation that require SimPE work- the way my eyes start to cross when I've been at it too long and all the numbers look the same. Things I do enjoy about SimPE- the knowledge that I can actually make things do stuff if there's a tutorial, especially if it just comes down to replacing things somehow, or poking at numbers that I know what they're supposed to do.

Also, is there any interest in an LBB/TeenLBB/Athletic Girl showerproof skin? And, um, if I were to use someone else's textures, would I need to edit them any to match up with anything, or is the mapping usually close enough for those meshes? And is there a- wait, no, I can google that, but I'll ask anyway- is there a Teen AG and/or a sexyfeet version of the AG nude bottom*? If not...IDK, I'll poke things, maybe make a request somewhere for a teen version, I'm not quite up to converting anything.

Anyway, it might all be for nothing, for all I know, I broke something. I've only just finished the SimPE work, testing is going to wait until my eyes stop trying to fall out.

*Right now I have a sexyfeet LBB and teen LBB skin with blockfoot AG for the adult females and maxis for everyone else. I'm very twitchy about this, but I don't want to reinvent the wheel here either.

Right, first off, WARNING: some of the textures seem to be inherently broken or weird or something, this is not something I did and I have no idea how to fix it or why it's happening, the non-sexyfeet versions do this too. If anyone can fix this, they will have my undying gratitude. EDIT: Hat fixed it! Check the comments for the necessary file.

Anyway, same as last time, one texture each, exactly the same as the ones I grabbed from Hat's wishlist, found under BV. All I did was edit the feet and, frequently, the UV map. Please let me know if I screwed something up, I'm basically slapping these together quickly and therefore may have missed something I can fix.

This is the first of many (likely just as half-assed) posts of Castaway Stories mesh edits. One texture each, found under Bon Voyage (in other words, exactly the same textures I got from Hat's wishlist). Toes might look a bit odd, as it was either remap the toes or remap everything else, so the toes may look like they would on non-sexyfeet-y skins even if the skins you use have toe textures. Better than leaf textures, though, or whatever that skirt thing in the middle is made of.*


*(Speaking of, UV maps on CS stuff? Absurd. Also on the list of CS absurdities, there are a lot of alpha layers to these things. Preg morphs are going to be fun. Good news is, I'm not even touching kids stuff until tomorrow, probably I'll start fighting with preg morphs tomorrow afternoon at the earliest.)

Fact- mesh edits are awesome. Not just as in 'somebody should do/has done this cool thing with this cool mesh', but as in 'I am having fun, and I am making things people might want, and it makes sense to my slightly odd brain that can't figure out flat texturing without months of practice (and still can't work out how to do anything other than copypasta or changing colors) and and and asdfghjkl MESHING'.

In case you cant tell, mesh editing makes me happy. If I weren't so lazy, I would do more of it. But, uh, there's some Castaway Stories edits coming soon, and if I can get over my stupid, stupid perfectionist issues, some random pregmorphs, especially for AM, because mpreg gives me warm fuzzy feelings (if you ask why, you will likely get a long ramble about gender that you probably didn't want to know, so, uh, I wouldn't recommend it, but if you do want to know, go for it, I'll tell you).

Next big 'learn to do this' regarding meshing- bodyshape conversions. Because I need more meshes for Aquilegia's androgyny set. (Right now I'm using a lot of old gothplague stuff or Pooklet's edits of gothplague's stuff, or stuff based on pooklet's edits... yeah. Need more variety.)

Also, mapping is... not as fun, but not as hard for me as I expected. I am probably going to spend stupid amounts of time making things not result in weirdly colored toes.

Because the world needs MOAR meshes with sexyfeet. And these are awesome, useful meshes. And because I am picky about barefoot meshes and must have sexyfeet on everything.bodyshop pic of the edited meshes

In the RAR* are the meshes for these sets- Biblets for Niblets, Babes in Dreamland, Basic Boxers for Kids, Babydoll Pajamas for Girls, and the onesie from the Teddies for Toddlers Collection. Just let these overwrite the originals.

All five meshes found here at

*(yes, all in one RAR, because I'm lazy like that, and it's just five meshes so it's not too hard to find the right one, right?) This entry was originally posted at Please comment there using OpenID.

So I got halfway through writing up the fall rotation for the royal family in my medieval neighborhood, and then decided I wanted to do something else- namely fiddle around with meshing, since I just got milkshape earlier today. And I cannot find a single tutorial for adding preg morphs to things, which is annoying because that's precisely what I want to do.

Bah. Screw it, I'll find something easier to make. Maybe I can add sexyfeet to stuff. That has to be easier, right?

ETA- HA I FOUND ONE. GOS has made my day yet again. I <3 that place.

ETA2- OMG YES I DID IT. Testing nao.

Visual proof, because OMGYAY-

That, of course, is a preg morph. I have added a preg morph to a mesh. I am very happy.
