Today, I bring you… yet another top! I keep saying on tumblr not to follow me for the sake of custom content but it’s starting to feel like that’s just a sham and maybe don’t follow me for stories, I guess. At least following me for CC actually pays off lately. My silliness aside, though, I do think this is one of my better tops. It’s a cute turtleneck blouse with a ribbed texture and balloon-ish sleeves. Let’s take a look at it.
- This is a new mesh by yours truly!
- Created for the Sims 3.
- For young adult/adult females.
- Custom CAS/Launcher thumbnail.
- Shows up as a top under everyday and career.
- Disabled for random.
- ~7,700 polys = HIGH. Recommended for photos, not gameplay.
- Has morph states.
The top comes with three presets as pictured: One with a rib texture, one without, and a striped version.
Please note that the two first presets are both white, but due to the rib knit pattern, colours will appear slightly darker on the first preset.
The top is fully recolourable both with/without texture and has three recolourable channels as shown in the image. The channels are as follows: The main blouse, the sleeves, and the collar/cuffs of the top.
- The top clips with certain bottoms.
- The bone assignment is pretty good, but clipping may occur aroundt he cuffs and collar for some poses.
- It may clip with extreme poses or poses where another sim grabs the sleeves/waist of the sim wearing this.
- There are slight shadows in CAS, but as you see there are none in the pictures.
Software: Blender, GIMP, TSR Workshop, Milkshape, PhotoScape, Affinity Photo, Affinity Designer.
The top is available in
both .package and .sims3package formats. Please do not download the .package-files from below. See ‘Note on .Package Files’ instead!
A Note on .Package Files
For most of the time I’ve been doing CC, I’ve been exporting a .package file directly from tsrw rather than exporting a .sims3pack and converting that to a .package. Unfortunately, I somehow didn’t realise that the process of converting to .sims3pack compresses the file, making it much, much smaller in size. In some instances, my .package files are therefore 10 or 20 times bigger than their .sims3pack counterparts.
Obviously, they still work, but they take up a lot of space on your computer and I don’t recommend using these old .package files. Below is a folder containing compressed versions of the files that I had uploaded in uncompressed versions. This only counts for the .package. If you want to download a .sims3pack version, simply follow the regular download link above. And otherwise, use the links pasted below. I’m sorry for any inconvenience caused by this!
If you made it this far, thank you so very much for checking this out and for downloading. Work on this one went so smoothly, I literally have it available within a single day. If bone assignment always went this smoothly, I’d be creating literally all the time… But oh well. 😌 Hope everyone’s doing well. I like to joke that I never write anymore, but it’s not actually true. I’m still acclimatising to my job, but I’m regaining my creative energy little by little. Hopefully, before too long passes I’ll be back to writing more consistently.
As always, have a great old time and I’ll see you in the next post!
