This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
I now present to ye antennas and skintones... Namekian-style!

Intro
Namekians (for those who don't know but actually care to discover what they are) is a race from Dragonball Z from the planet Namek (yes... original planet name). They have the ability to stretch their arms at incredible length and regenerate missing limbs. I don't remember if there is any reason why they have antennas though... The species is made up of only phenotypical males, but I think some people won't mind creating female sim versions...

Since completing Piccolo, I've also wanted to share my antennas which I have made for all ages and genders and the skintone with the Namekian details for all ages and genders as well.

But when I saw a Namek skintone for TS3 on MTS2 which had most of the details done, pink pillow-y muscles and all, I thought it was about time there was a nice TS2 version of a skin tone with such details.

Also I wanted Piccolo to have an improved skin, so if ya already downloaded Piccolo, now you can give 'im a more accurate skin.

Skintone


So here it is, two weeks of blood and toil (with breaks in between) editing and re-editing to finally get a decent texture for those pink pillow-like muscles and get those red bands to look correct. I based alot of the details on a shirtless Piccolo figurine that had some parts of his legs revealed. The only thing I didn't get to do was the pink muscle on the side of the shin because the sims shins were too narrow to add it, so I had to compensate for that.

Ren/Louis' self make-up skin is the base for this skintone, all I did was add the details I wanted and change the eye area.

The skin is modified version of Piccolo skin, so it still retains crayonsarefun's showerproof Lean Bodybuilder figure if you choose to download crayonsarefun's skintone linked LBB mesh, but it is not necessary.

But if you want to have the showerproof LBB skintone and have LBB meshes for your buff Namekians, ya'll can find the
- SP LBB Meshes HERE
- LBB Mesh itself HERE
- Clothing for the LLB Mesh HERE or HERE
And you don't necessarily need to only use the LBB, you can have them whatever body type ya like, however to retain the male's muscle-y shape in the shower would still require the SP LBB mesh by crayonsarefun.

This skin is geneticized, available for all ages and both genders (except the infant is just green), with elders having darker green skin. They are 100% "barbie", but not that I choose them to be that way, Namekians appear to not have nipples or those other typical human anatomical features.


Namek Antennas Meshes


So as you can see, I now have the antennas mesh available for all ages. I thought it was also about time there was a new kind of antennas for aliens and I think these would make nice generic alien antennas.

All the antennas meshes are made with Milkshape, they are recolourable, and as you can see in the pics below they can be worn with swimsuits, pjs, etc, and they can be worn with other accessories. They should be base game compatible. Pretty much all the same details as the antennas mesh in my Piccolo thread. Also recolour available to match skin of elder Nameks.

Polygon Counts:
Faces: 811 Vertices: 568

Other Info
-If you want your Namek sims to have the other details such fangs, long nails, ridges and pointy nose, small eyes, etc., then you can download them from my Piccolo thread (both Piccolo and Diekatze Meshes 2.rar files) HERE
-However if you just want the pointy ears, you can download the default replacement CAS ArchHeart face for both male and female by pentabet HERE

Due Credits
-The base for the skintone is made from Ren/Louis'skintone

Policy
-Do whatevah ya want with my meshes or recolour to your heart's content, just credit and link me
