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


This project took me two long, hard days to finish. But I am proud of it.
This is my first Sims 2 object, an owl pet. It is a tribute to Harry Potter.

I made this pet by using and slightly altering Rebecah's animated owl mesh and MissWendy's bird cage mesh. I am so grateful to both of you for making such wonderful meshes to work with. Thank you both so much!

The owl is Rebecah's animated owl mesh with no 'horns', and with wings that flap and fly. The owl animates well, except there is a small gap in the right wing when it takes off for flight.



The cage is MissWendy's bird cage mesh without the bird and greatly resized. It has no door or feeder. I looked at pictures of Hedwig's cage and did not see a feeder so I left it this way. Don't worry though, your owl can still eat!
As for the door, I may add it later.
Also, there is no 'dirty' cage recolor, so make sure you check your owl's cage often to see if it is dirty. I may add this later as well.

So far there is only one recolor, and it is based on a Snowy Owl, or Hedwig from Harry Potter. If anyone has suggestions for recolors, you may post them, but no promises as I am not the best at texturing. I basically recolored Rebecah's owl's texture to make this recolor.

Oh, and yes, the sim pictured is Snape!

Owl: 3616 faces, 1981 vertices
Cage: 1572 faces, 1825 vertices

Hello all
I think Snape's hair was either from Coolsims or Newsea, can't remember for sure. I probably won't be uploading him though, since he would need a lot of work and I haven't been on TS2 for a long time. I may not even have him anymore. I probably won't be updating my owl any time soon for the same reason, but I may in the future.

I haven't tested it very recently, but the owl worked fine in my game last time I checked. I did make it with all EPs installed so I don't know if that has to do with anything.
This is the first object I've ever made for TS2 so I'm still learning how to make things work, really sorry for any trouble anyone is having.

@forte11 - You get the owl cage in Buy Mode, should be where the bird cages are, which I forgot where since I haven't turned on TS2 in awhile.

Great work, horrible to see it bogged down with talks of "harry potter" crap.
Owls were cool way before Harry Potter.

An update or remesh of this for the Sims 3 (especially now that Pets is out) would be fantastic, I'm trying to piece together some custom HP themed Sims and this would just complete it so nicely. XD
