Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
hello everyone =)

my first piercing set is finished. There are 12 different piercings (20 alltogether for both sides). I paacked them all in one file, but let me know if you like a single download.

The piercings i made for both sides, but the vertical labret and the bridge, because its not pissible :D

In Cas or in game you`ll see thumbnails, so you can find faster the piercing you want to use. (maybe you have to delete the accessory.cache file in the "the sims 2" folder and the CASThumbnails.package in the "thumbnails" folder.

At this time, i`d like to thank ScorpioMaurus for adding the thumbnails to the files for me.

The piercings are layerable too, that means, you can add one, two, three, or whatever you like to your sim`s face.

maybe I`ll upload some recolors soon =)

I would like a bit more individual downloads, but only 'cause you asked.

They're beautiful! Thank you.

Edit: the second option would be for me to open the zip immediately after downloading it but before extracting it, and delete them by name, saving the ones I wanted. But these are numbered, so.

CAS item-by-item deletion takes a bit and tends to stress my poor old computer, and I really only need one or two, considering the groaning weight of my downloads folder.

They're sooo nice!! Thank you so much! :D

Hi :)

I'm a Swedish girl that loves to create sims :)
I think that making a sim is funnier than playing.
Maybe not, but... I don't know ^^
One thing is for sure... I LOVE THE SIMS!!!
Specially the The Sims 2 -games :)

How good you're asking...

I really adore your helix, but I'm generally not that fan of piercings, so i don't want to have a whole set in my downloads.
So i would really appreciate a if i could choose the ones i like.
It would be sufficient for me if the packages just were named after there content or if you posted what package includes which piercing.

Apart from that I really have to say after downloading a lot of your eyes: Your work here on MTS is awesome!

Shady since they were uploaded the first time with the Thumbs you do not have to delete the accessory.cache file. That only applies when someone updates a file like how I fixed GeneralZoi's Fangs and added a thumbnail. I guess the Accessory.cache file stores the images used. So if someone had Zoi's Mesh for the last few years and now saw the update they would have to delete that file. But because I added these before you ever uploaded them no files need to be deleted.

I can see these becoming my most used piercings, due to the thumbnails <3 And the fact they are my favourite set I've seen so far.

Darn you! Even though custom piercing meshes exist, as well as actual in-game ones starting from Bon Boyage, I downloaded these anyway! XD Why must you be so awesome?!

It was a pleasure to work with these, I think they are awesome and this will definitely take the place of some older piercings I had. I'm glad I got to add Thumbs to them and I love the Thumbnails Shady made for me to work with. It was an easy set to work with because of the piercing placement and the great thumbs.

This was my very first download, so maybe I did something wrong.
But they don't look anything like the pictures.
They look like gray dots and lines. Help?

@RainbowBluee: what graphic settings do you have, on my very old computer, the sims/object detail parametre put up helped a good deal in showing downloads in good quality
#25 Old 29th Nov 2008 at 8:05 AM
thank you! I'll definitely get some use out of these!
