PSA: Alternate Download Links

Posted by NixNivis on 22 February, 2019

With SFS still down and no news on when they might be back up, I’ve now added alternate Google Drive links to all my downloads (I hope).

In the future, all downloads will have an alternate link in addition to my usual download button. If anything, this experience has taught me how v. unwise it is to put all your eggs in one basket.

Edit, 24 Feb: SFS is back up, hooray, so now my download buttons work again. But as I said before, all future downloads will have alternate links, just to be on the safe side.

TSM Collection Files!

Posted by NixNivis on 11 March, 2014

I’m an idiot. No, really, I am. I just realised I have no less than five sets of converted TSM objects (six if you count the two training dummies as well)… but not so much as a single collection file. Bad Nix, no cookie! 😦 We can’t have that, of course (and I want that cookie), so I’ve seen to it. 🙂

Vulcan Hair for Ladies of All Ages

Posted by NixNivis on 14 March, 2013

Vulcan Hair for Ladies

Today I bring you hair for your Vulcan ladies, binned and familied for all ages.

This mesh hasn’t been posted on my blog before, but it’s been previously released at SimTrek. Compared to the SimTrek version, though, this one has been thoroughly updated:

  • the mesh is now animated for all ages, not just for AF/EF
  • it fits more closely around the ears so that it looks better on Sims who don’t have pointy ears
  • for all ages, it blends more smoothly with the neck
  • AF/EF no longer has a gap at the neck
  • all UV maps have been slightly edited, but not so much as to break existing recolours
  • and finally, it’s got brand new Pooklet textures! 😀

Rank Insignia – New and Improved!

Posted by NixNivis on 30 December, 2012

fcrankCAS-small

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. 🙂

Changelog:

  • 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
