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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hello Everyone!!

After six months of work, I have finally finished the sword. This is my first hacked object, that I have ever made. In the .rar file, there is 3 files, 1 is the sword, 1 is the stand and the last one is a social object. You need all 3 objects in your game for everything to work properly.

UPDATE!!
17-1-2007 : After some people requesting it, I made it so the "Demonstrate Skills" interaction now adds body skillpoints. Your sim will gain them alot faster than usual, 1 and a bit skill points each time they do the interaction. See post in thread for a picture of it. POST

Mesh Details:

Sword Stand: 1856/1995 (f/v)
Sword: 1562/1302 (f/v)

Interactions
Sword Stand:
  • "Draw Sword" - Your sim will walk to the stand and pick the sword up. The texture on the stand will change to make it look like the sword has been taken out. (NOTE: It will stay in your sim's hand until you use the "Put Away" interaction on the stand, or the "Drop" interaction on the sword.)
  • "Put Away" - Your Sim will walk to the stand and put the sword away. The texture on the stand will change to make it look like the sword has been put back.
  • "View" - Just the same as the normal maxis "View" interaction.

Sword:
  • "Pick Up" - The sim will walk over to the sword and pick it up. If the sword isn't in the hand of the sim, this option will appear.
  • "Drop" - The sim will drop the sword on the ground. This option will only appear when the sword is in the hand.
  • "Demonstrate Skills" - Your sim will swing the sword around, aswell as do some kicks and punches. After the routine is finished, they bow.This option will only appear when the sword is in the hand. See the Update area, for an update on this interaction.
  • "Fight a Sim" - Both the Sim with the sword and the selected sim will fight. They will stab, punch, kick and slash each other. Once they have finished, your sims fun will go up by a quarter.This option will only appear when the sword is in the hand.
  • "Commit Suicide" - The Sim will perform a Custom animation (it may not actually go into the sim) where they will put the sword into them. They will throw up, then die.This option will only appear when the sword is in the hand.
  • "Kill a Sim" - The sims selected will do exactly the same as the "Fight a Sim" interaction, but the sim who was selected, will die. It has a custom animation, but is a little off from stabbing the sim.This option will only appear when the sword is in the hand.


Known Issues:
  • "Sword Placement in hand" - Sometimes, if something happens to the sim, the sword is moved out further from the hand. To fix this, you can either delete the sword from Buy mode, or put the sword back in the stand, then pull it out again.
  • "Strange Pose" - Sometimes, when your sim commit's suicide, the sim may be stuck in a pose next to the stand. To fix this, you can either let the sim die by the grim reaper, or save them from the reaper.
  • "Jump Bug" - You may experience a bug with the sword or stand, where the sim may teleport from one place to another then instantly back. Currently i dont know what is causing it, so i can't fix it.


Game Compatability:
These objects, require atleast 1 expansion pack for the sword to go in the hand. It does not matter which expansion you have.
They will also not replace any of your game files.
The stand can be found under Miscellanious/ Miscellanious.
The animations only work for adult.

Echo: The biggest thanks would have to go her, she has been helping me with alot for this sword, without her, it wouldn't even be half finished. She helped with with making the sword stay in the hand after the interaction was finished. She corrected some of the codes i did which were wrong. She helped me with the commit suicide interaction, by telling me how to set it up. She also taught me the importance of Guardian bhav's. She also helped me majorly with the Kill a Sim interaction.
Smonaff: For fixing the Kill a Sim interaction for me, I wouldn't have been able to fix it. Also thank you for telling me how to make the Fight a Sim function work with the Kill a Sim interaction.

Thanks for the answer buddy. It's already looking good, really good anyway.

By the way, I'm not even asking because I know one thing ; this takes a LOT of time and patience. But let me only say this ; If you ever make a similar job with a StarWars lightsaber, I'm sure you'll make many people's eyes pop out of their heads !!! But then again, I'm not asking just dreaming

Thanks again, keep up the good work !

Talent, not age, determines whether someone is good at meshing or not. I'm 36 and suck when it comes to doing meshes and textures. My talent is programming which is why I stick to Behaviour Functions and leave the meshing to those who have a knack for it.

Tired of getting ripped off by paysites?

I've seen a lightsaber version based on pillowfight, maybe not twhat you want, but I think it was on the palladins palace-site or something. i'm not sure, and I don't know the address, but I think you can find it there. i have it, at least.

This is so great! I need this for my sims stories and was trying to figure out how to do it in editing now I don't have to! Thank you soooo much! Wow so impressed!

No, I don't think I will kiss you, although you need kissing, badly. That's what's wrong with you. You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.

I'm sorry to even ask this but is there any way you can make this in zip? I can get the rar files on my computer and I absolutely love this. If you have time I'd really appreciate it.

iluvpears56, It is a rule on mts2 that you can only upload 1 file type. I suggest you download Winrar, so you can use them.

#118 Old 16th Jan 2007 at 7:20 PM
Thanks, this is really neat.

I got a glitch though. I had one of my sims try the sword (demonstrate skill and fight a family member). Afterwards (after putting the sword back into the stand) that sim tought a family member with the punching-bag career item. During the teaching session he regularly zapped over from the punching bag to the weapon stand for a split second and then back to his position by the punching bag. It did not disturb gameplay (as far as I can tell). It just seems to be a display glitch. I then sold the weapon stand but he still kept teleporting to the position in front of where the weapon stand had been while teaching with the punching bag.

I am on a Mac and have all 4 EPs and loads of other stuff installed.
