While we’re on the subject of knights. 😉
Over at Affinity Sims, the brilliant Rebecah has extracted the BV duel dummy so Sims can use it to gain body skill and sports enthusiasm. 😀 This is absolutely great, of course, but for my own storytelling purposes, there were two things about it I wanted done a little differently: I wanted it to be invisible so I wouldn’t have to keep moveObjects’ing it out of the way for screenshots (I know, I’m lazy), and I wanted the Sims to use swords instead of cutlasses. More knightly that way. Thanks to Rebecah’s generous policy, I could clone her dummy and tweak it.
And tweak I did. 🙂 First and foremost, this duel dummy doesn’t require Bon Voyage, nor does it require Freetime. However, it does require Nightlife or above, but it doesn’t matter which EP(s) you have; anything between NL and AL goes. Sims still get sports enthusiasm if you have FT installed, though, and of course they also still gain body skill.
Secondly, this dummy is invisible – really invisible. It doesn’t even have a sun shadow. But it does have a not-invisible hay bale recolour, just in case you want to position your Sims for a duel and need to be able to see where you put the dummy. Or if your Sims, you know, think that windmills are sooo 16th century and prefer to fight hay bales. (It’s what all the kool knights are doing these days.)
And thirdly, as you can see above, your Sims now duel with swords. If this sword reminds you of one used with my knightly posebox, then… you are absolutely correct. 😆 This, too, is a longsword from TSM. (What can I say, I like the TSM swords.) Just as with the swords for my posebox, this sword won’t show up in the catalogue, but you still need to keep it in your Downloads folder lest your Sims will duel empty-handed.
Child Sims can also use this duel dummy (that’s nothing I can take credit for, Rebecah’s original dummy was already set up this way) – only you can’t very well have them fight with sharp, heavy longswords like the adults do, that would be dangerous. So, your little Simlets will get wooden swords instead. Less risk of injury for them, and less risk of ulcers for their parents. 😛
Thank you, Rebecah!
