Download | Watermelon Handbag πŸ‰πŸ‰πŸ‰

Facebook ads are meant to sell things to consumers, but when I see cute stuff in those ads, my mind immediately goes ‘OH HEY, I could make that for my sims!’ And that’s how I ended up with this happy little watermelon stuck in my mind… and my heart. There are two versions, one to decorate your home and one to decorate your sims’ shoulder – and there’s a bonus pose to show it off properly.

Watermelon Bag – Decor Item

  • New mesh created by yours truly
  • Non-recolourable with 1 preset
  • Found under Miscellaneous decor
  • Costs 150Β§
  • Proper LOD’s (Won’t look like a plant when you zoom out!)
  • Proper sunshadow (Take it outside and watch the shadow for hours!)
  • No occlusion shadow (Won’t make the entire room dark)
  • Polycount
    • High level of detail: ~7k
    • Medium level of detail: ~3.500
      • This is a HIGH poly count, please be mindful if your computer is not up to the task.

Watermelon Bag – Accessory

Handbag Pose

  • Not poselist-compatible
  • For ages teen and up
  • Can be used for any gender, though the accessory bag was made for female only

Known Issues

  • There’s a small gap by the zipper on both versions (see photo). This is to do with how Marvellous Designer makes zippers and I didn’t think it was a big enough problem that I wanted to do anything about it.
  • The accessory version looks a little funky in cas, but fine outside of it. I didn’t take a picture, sorry.
  • However, the textures aren’t anywhere near as nice on the acc version as the decor one – sorry! I tried to make a nicer version and failed miserably.
  • I would normally have a custom thumbnail for the accessory version, but I just couldn’t make it work.
  • The bag’s strap might clip with certain clothes of if you use certain sliders.
  • The pose might clip with certain clothes or if you use certain sliders.
  • The accessory version is probably cursed, tbh. Burn a sprig of sage and sprinkle salt in the corners of your house if this affects you.

Terms of Use

You may:

  • Edit the meshes to suit your own needs
  • Retexture and recolour to your heart’s content
  • Convert to other games
  • Share those edits/conversions
  • Include the deco version with builds
  • Include the accessory version with sims
  • Include the accessory version with poses if you make any for it

If you make poses using the objects, please let me know and I’ll include them in this post. 😊

Please avoid:

  • Sharing unedited versions (it’s a waste of time man)
  • Putting any versions behind paywalls/adfly

Besides this, I like credit – it’s nice, so feel free to give me some of that.

I also ask that you let others freely edit your edited versions. I share things that I make because I want to contribute to the community that I’ve been a part of for a long time now. This community wouldn’t be anything without the things we create and share and I’m 100% for taking that creativity further by building on my work.

That said, I know Simsdom will be using this to grease their greedy pockets. Do your worst, you fuckers.

Downloads

The download comes in two versions, .package and .sims3pack. Each comes in a .zip and includes the decor and accessory versions i your chosen format. The pose only comes as a .package file. The download link takes you to a folder, where you choose which .zip you would like to download.

Thank You!

For looking and downloading and just being here. Things are tough around the world, so I hope you’ll get a little smile out of this silly bag. It’s not much but it’s a little smile from me to you. I’m probably going to be taking classes from home for the foreseeable future, but at least the sun is shining and I made an unreasonably big cheesecake. I want to direct an extra big thanks to the readers of Heartwood. I feel like I’ve been seeing new faces and getting comments, so thanks so much for receiving my little story so well. You guys are wonderful.

I hope everyone’s doing well – remember to be extra good to yourself and take care.

Lots of love and πŸ‰πŸ‰πŸ‰,
