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.
***UPDATED WITH TODDLER VERSION, JANUARY 22 2018: A big THANK YOU to the very helpful Yunanesca, who has now made a conversion of the wings for Toddlers.
Grab them from the Files tab. Now all ages can have wings!***
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

This is a conversion of my TS3 Recolourable Glass Wings. They are for males and females from Toddler to Elder, coming in three separate files, one for Children, one for Teen-Elder, and one for Toddlers. In game, they're found in CAS under Glasses, with a custom thumbnail depicting a wing, and contain 18 swatches for 18 different preset colours and patterns. (So please note that your sim will be unable to wear glasses if they are wearing the wings.)

They're categorised for all standard outfits, and remember that you need to go into every category and apply them in each one, in order for your sim to always be wearing them no matter what category of clothes they change into. (But, note that they don't stay on when Nude.) They are not enabled for Random, so you shouldn't get townies generated with wings.

They come in three different styles: Monarch Butterfly pattern, Solid colour with a patterned border, and Solid with no border. In the below pic, the first two rows show the Butterfly pattern in six different colour combinations, and the bottom row shows the solid-bordered style in two variations, plus a Solid wing with a multicolour Art Deco-style pattern applied to it.



The solid colour variation is especially useful for those who don't have good graphics and for whom patterned items can look blurry. The solid colours included are, as below, blue, red, yellow/gold, light green, dark green, pink, white, black, and a distressed brown in case you have Steampunk fairies or some kind of supernatural character with leathery wings:



In-game, a faerie family enjoys a frolic in their pool while their mixologist cousin makes juice on the rocks.



And as of January 2018, thanks to Yunanesca's toddler conversion, now toddlers can have wings too.



Recolouring: Now that we no longer have CaST, it's hard to guess what colours or patterns every player would like these wings to come in, so I've supplied recolour templates so that you can make recolours yourself. And as I've said in a couple of other uploads, I'm so pleased that we can recolour glass quickly and easily in TS4!

The three templates for the three different styles are in the 'Recolour templates for wings' zip file on the Download tab. The solid ones are very easy to recolour, just requiring a bucket fill in the rectangular square these wings are mapped to. The Solid Bordered ones are almost as easy - just apply the colour of your choice to the inner colour mask area (in yellow), and another colour or a pattern to the outer mask area (in red). But the Butterfly pattern requires more patience to get right, and I've attached it as a .bmp file to save the loss of quality from my original .psd file - saving it as .jpg like I did with the two others, makes it go too pixellated. The bmp file also contains the alpha channel, so you can see what the alpha looks like and you can play around with making it lighter or darker for more or less transparency.

Original TS3 version here: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=487123

Thanks for looking, hope you'll find these useful for your supernatural folk.

I really wanted to get these, however, when I go into files for the download link, it tells me that I need to get an expansion or "stuff" listed below in order to download it, but nothing is listed below it for me to download, sign up for, etc. I was really looking forward to these, but I guess not anymore.

That text automatically shows on every Files link for every item on this site, and I guess it could be misleading if you haven't downloaded from here before. If you mouse over the one icon shown there, it shows that it is for Sims 4 base game. That is the only 'game pack' you need to use this item. ALL of my creations are base-game compatible, no extra packs needed.

They're in Head Accessories under Glasses. The custom icon shows a picture of a wing.

(Glad you like some of my other stuff, thank you! Hope you can find these wings OK now.)

a lava lamp for the sims 4 would be awesome, also a giant candy cane(possibly as a light), and lastly the light that hangs from the ceiling and looks kind of like a japanese paper lantern is only available in 3 colors would love to see it recolored in red and blue. don't know if these things are possible. email is toytimm@yahoo.com and yahoo messenger is the same. thanks in advance if u can make these, Timm

I don't take requests (as stated at the top of my profile page), and requests are not allowed on this site - please read the Site Rules: http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=517758

Someone has made something similar to a lava lamp here: http://necrodogmtsands4s.tumblr.com/ . Scroll about halfway down the page. Re the Japanese lanterns, do you know that you can change a light's colour in-game? Red and blue are among the in-game options. In any case, the Where Can I Find forum is the place to ask for things in case someone has already made it.

Glad you like my other stuff, though - thank you!

Hi, sorry but as I do say right in the first paragraph of the description: "They're found in CAS under Glasses, with a custom thumbnail depicting a wing, and contain 18 swatches for 18 different preset colours and patterns. (So please note that your sim will be unable to wear glasses if they are wearing the wings.)"

It is not possible in TS4 to wear more than one item in the same category. Maybe it will be someday, as it was later on in TS3 thanks to the Master Controller mod, but I don't know of a mod that lets you do that for TS4. You could try asking in the 'Where Can I Find' forum if such a mod does exist, but not that I've heard of.

Sorry, it's unlikely that I'll update any of my CAS items for toddlers, because I retired from Sims creation last year and another game takes up my creative time now. I might look into it at some point, but don't know when.

That would be OK, as long as they credit me for the wings mesh and textures, with a link back to this page. They can either upload their conversion themselves, or give me the conversion to add to this page, or both. I think it would be cute to see toddlers in wings (as I did for TS3), but I just don't have the time now because I'm involved in creating for another game.
