Fangtasia Shirt for Sims 3
You know what I find really annoying?
The lack of a forehead slider in Sims 3.
What’s funny is that I didn’t even realize that the forehead slider was missing until I started trying to create Eric Northman. Alexander Skarsgård, the actor who plays Eric Northman in True Blood, has a rather pronounced forehead and try as I might, I couldn’t get the look just right.
In fact, after all of the problems that I had making this rather simple tank top, I pretty much gave up on Eric.
So. Yeah. The shirt.
Last night I was ridiculously proud of myself and my shirt. I even uploaded it to Mod the Sims so that you guys could download it if you are so inclined. It’s waiting on approval [which might not happen] and if it gets approved then I’ll provide a link for you.
But today, after having some time away from my creation, I’ve decided that the shirt isn’t nearly as good as I thought it was.
The text is a bit hard to read so I think that I’ll give it another go today.
If you’re interested in trying your hand at making your own clothes for Sims 3, you’re going to need this stuff:
- Delphy’s CAS Texture Unitool – allows you to extract textures and meshes so that you can create stuff
- Photoshop, GIMP or some other type of photo editing program
- Tutorial to create custom clothing stencils - teaches you how to put purty pictures on your clothing
- lots of coffee and patience – You’re going to be working on this for a while and will probably make a lot of mistakes.
I’ve been bitten by the “custom clothing” bug and really want to make a better Fangtasia shirt. I think that’s my plan for the day.
If you make something really awesome, send me a link and I’ll post it on here.
