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.
************* MAJOR UPDATE - 4th March*******************

Please re-download. The files has the SAME name as the original release so it will simply overwrite you old file....


ADDED: New interaction for adults: now they can "Join" the toddler when he looks at himself in the mirror.

ADDED: The Toddler Mirror can now be "stepped over", like other small objects placed on the ground.

FIXED: The colour changing to pink at the end of the "Change Appearance" interaction.

FIXED: The interactions can now be correctly canceled.

FIXED: The message displayed when the Body skill point is gained doesn't mention any more the "Charisma" skill.

FIXED: The Catalogue Description now correctly displays the "+Body" tag (instead of "+Creativity").

(Also tested with OFB....works perfectly!)

***************************************************


boblishman & Numenor presents:

The 'Gussie' Toddler Mirror



Once again, Numenor and myself have teamed up to create a 'brand new' object.

This time it's a 'toddler friendly' mirror, made from a soft outer non- allergic man made material and an unbreakable (polished non-toxic metal coated) plastic mirror - for maximum protection for your little ones....

As usual, I just made the mesh and textures and Numenor did all the 'magic' in making it a 'usable' object for Toddlers. The mirror has a fully working reflection surface, and can only be placed on the ground (not surfaces) - because the toddler need to crawl to it in order to use it.


There are TWO pie menu options:

1) "Look who's in the mirror!" - This allows your Toddlers to 'play' with the mirror... This included several animations, but, more importantly, playing with the mirror will slowly increase their 'body skill - because your toddler is learning to take care their face (:confused ... and you will receive a custom message once the toddler has gained a body point!


2) "Change appearence" - This works the same as the 'change appearence' for other Sims, and will allow you to change hair, makeup, accessories etc.

Whichever option you choose, your toddler will crawl close to the mirror...then change to the sitting position...and then 'scoot' up close to the mirror with their legs either side of it. Likewise, when the interaction is finished...your toddler will 'scoot' and crawl away from the mirror.


This new Toddler Mirror is only usable by Toddlers (other Sims will just get a 'There are no actions available' message)

Made with Milkshape SimPE v0.54 it has it's own unique (registered) GUID, is fully recolourable and is compatable with ALL games ( works with or without exapansion pack(s).

Polygon count = 624 (= good )

The single package contain two recolours....'Baby Blue'...and 'Pretty in Pink'. Deleting either of these colours will result in deleting the whole package and consequently the mirror itself.

You can change the colour at purchase time or using the design tool.

Price: 40 simoleons.

It can be found in the catalogue in Decorative/ Mirrors (for both Residential and Commercial).

The real thanks go to Numenor for making this such a wonderful object to use....so please take time to thank him for those things (I just made the mesh/textures.

This has been tested extensively using the base (original) game, but will also work with any additional expansion packs. Please report any issues you may find in this thread, which will be checked by

myself and Numenor regularly.

Have fun with your toddlers....


Bob & Numenor

(Thanks and stars always encourage us to make more... and we'll share them of course! )

If you are in doubt, you can always redownload it: it will overwrite the existing one and automatically update all the mirrors already in your game.

I know almost nothing about Mac systems...
You should find a program that can expand zip archives (I think that the StuffIt Expander does); extract the .package from the zip and put it in your Downloads folder.
You may need (not sure) to rename the file extension from .package to .pkg

PS: if the described procedure works, please let me know

Default How do you install the package
The extension on the files within the zip is .package, vs. what I see on other Sims2 packs I have downloaded (.sims2pack). These do not seem to install. Do I need to manually copy them into a specific folder under the game folders? Please provide instructions.

Thank you.

There´s something wrong with my toddled´s mirror.
When I change their appearance they are transparent.
It´s very strange,the head disappears,the only thing that stay is the hair.
Did this happen to anybody else?

Mari_d, try applying on the toddles a full-face makeup and confirm; then, change appearance again and remove the makeup.

Is this baby born in game? Or some cheats have been used to create it?

Default Pacifire Problem
The problem is I cant get the mirror installed to my computer.I get it downloaded,but whatever I do it won't install.I even changed the file name to ".sims2pack" like all the others that work.The icon changed,but it popped a message that said "Please double-click the costom content file to install the content" and the only choice was "ok." What do I do?

Uniquename, any file that is not a .sims2pack will not install itself unless you download and install the QXpress installer that Delphy made. If you have a zip or rar file you will need to extract the contents and put them into (usually) your downloads folder in the sims directory which should be where Mari_d said.
