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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Ok guys, time for some fun...

Have you got clumsy Sims?.....well I have, so I decided to give them a broken arm/wrist! (OK, they can still use their arm and hand, but in a cast)







Polygon Count: 252 (=ok... )

It can be worn by child -> elder, both sexes and will work in ALL games.


This mesh-package file contains 7 different meshes - one for each age/sex.

This is because each age and sex (except children) all have different arm shapes... so there is a different mesh for Elders, Adults, Teens and children. However, they are all in one package file.

The zip download has three files - the mesh, the plain colour package plus a recolour of a 'written' on cast (because it's traditional in the UK for people to write things on plastercasts.)

The tooltip in CAS, BodyShop and the Accessories window for the plain white cast says "(plain)".

(They look a bit odd in BodyShop, but that's because BodyShop is not animated - and they have their hands on their hips or straight out (who ever stands like that???:confused....I suggest you try them on 'in game' ....they look MUCH better...

This is fully recolourable, but please use the ADULT MALE one to make a recolour. Your newly made recolour will appear in all ages and sexes.

Please remember that many clothes are different meshes than the 'normal' body shape. Thick or unusual shaped clothes may mean that part(s) of the mesh will dissapear into them. This is normal.. Basically, they look best on sleeveless clothes.

This can be worn with any other accessory (Maxis, mine or anyone elses), and .... they will stay on when your Sims shower, swim or change clothing (like a real cast ...) ...and it's waterproof :confused:, so you can shower and swim with it on....

Please note: it is impossible to stop the Sims using their hands...and so I have assigned parts of the mesh to the hands and fingers. This means that the cast will 'bend' and therefore stop the hand from poking through the static mesh. I thought that this was better than having the hand in the 'wrong' position in relation to the cast. Usually, everything matches up but with extreme hand movements parts of the mesh may be slightly distored. This is normal.



Enjoy,...

Bob

(Thanks and stars always encourage me to make more... )

RIGHT arm cast can be found HERE ....

Completely awesome, BobL! Adds realism to the game! I see that accessories have became your field of experiments for now, can't wait for more.

I second aiel777's idea, too. :D

Oh wow, I see this being recolored heaps as most people who wear casts (especially youngsters) like to write all over them. As I was dreaming up a laundry list of accessories you could do (LOL) I never thought of casts! This definitely opens up a whole new world of accessories... This is simply amazing!

This is so awesome. How come nobody has thought of a cast before? That's why we have Bob's Fantastical brain for. I truly adore your creations.

You don't know what will be.
Looking for you in darkened corners,
Descend into madness with me.
