Seeing the signet rings I made a little while back, that lords wear on the little finger and ladies on the middle finger, Almighty Hat wished for index finger rings, and/or for little finger rings “for ladies who handle their own correspondence.” Hat is somebody I totally fangirl (srsly, she’s solely responsible for about 2/3 if not more of the CC in my medieval game), so of course I had to comply with her wish.
So. Hat (and everybody else) – have some signet rings, v. 2.0.
You can find v. 2.0 of these rings here.
This is one of those “I don’t know if anybody else will want this, but I’ll upload it anyway” things.
In this medievalish story I’m writing (that’s going to go live really soon), one of my characters takes off his signet ring and gives it to a certain lady character (in lieu of another kind of ring 😉 ). I was in the middle of taking screenshots when I realised that none of the rings I already had in my game looked anything like I wanted – so I made some that did look like I wanted.
Update 27 July, 2016: In case your Sims don’t like to run around all day with their swords unsheathed (I mean, you can poke somebody’s eye out like that. Or your own), ocelotekatl @ Blue Heaven Sims has made great completer set with scabbards for these!
When she saw my posebox with accessory swords, Morgaine – the brilliant author of The Chronicles of Albion – wondered if it would be possible to turn the swords into the kind of accessories your Sims put on in a mirror, so you could use them with other poseboxes and animation boxes as well. Since Albion is one of my favouritest (that is too a word!) Sim stories ever, of course I accepted the challenge. 😀
The swords have all been extracted from TSM, so much as I’d like to I can’t take any credit for the meshes or textures.
Over at SimTrek (forum is gone now), Dominie wanted ears for her Vulcans – proper Vulcan ears, thank you very much, that angle forward like Spock’s. My Vulcan Sims and I thought this sounded logical, so I took her up on it. 🙂
As I’ve said before, during 2013 I plan on updating all my old body and accessory meshes. But I’m going to jump the gun a little and start with my Starfleet rank insignia already – they really needed help.
I haven’t just updated the meshes, though. I’ve updated… well, everything. 🙂
- all meshes have been updated; they now have a better shape and look crisper
- all UV maps have been updated so that they actually make sense
- all textures have been updated, following the new UV maps
- the admiral’s rank insignia for TNG/VGR now have their own meshes and recols
- the TNG/VGR shoulder rank insignia have new bone assignments; they now move properly with the shoulder and won’t clip as badly into the Sim’s body
- and last but not least, all rank insignia now have custom thumbnails in CAS and in game, so you’ll no longer have to squint at a nondescript head to try to figure out how many pips it’s wearing
For us in the northern hemisphere (and especially here in the northern northern hemisphere), the days are getting shorter and the weather colder. Me, I always wear warm slippers at this time of year, since I really don’t like it when my feet are cold – so I thought my Sims should have something to keep their feet warm as well.
