I almost listed him under Horror/Gothic. Melkor or Morgoth, the original Dark Lord. He began as one of the greatest of the Valar, then through his arrogance and ambition became twisted and destructive. Read more about him in the Silmarillion.

**I don’t know if OFB is needed for this sim, the original base mesh came with OFB, but it is not listed as required. I would appreciate it if someone without OFB could give me feedback on whether or not it works.**

Custom Content included with Melkor:

Check out both profiles, their work is often featured with good reason.

She’s got some new skins at The Insimenator. I don’t know how, but she keeps outdoing herself.

I really love his beards.

She has some great eyes too

Some great facial character masks here.

Maxis texture, recolored by me to fit the body builder knight mesh by Marvine. I’m pretty proud of how it looks. It was easy though, just some tweaking in my freebie paint program.

Not included:

Hair by Compulsive D:

It seems the artist did not give permission to redistribute the texture, and they are no longer active so I can’t ask them for an exception, sorry. It shouldn’t be too much trouble to change the hair in body shop. He is uploaded with Maxis hair.

You’ll need the following meshes:

Ack! The site has apparently exceeded bandwidth. I believe it, it's a fantastic and very popular site. Hopefully it will be back up soon.

My Policy:
I've decided everything that I've made can be boiled, fried, folded, spindled mutilated...Whatever! My only stipulation is that everything stays 100% FREE. Beyond that, a little nod for credit is nice, but I'm not going to get worked up over it if you don't.

This works fine for my neighborhoods. It's a lot more complicated with my sims though. They are full of other people's work and there is a wide variety of terms of use among them. So you shouldn't repost them as is. If you want to take the sim face and slap different skin, hair, eyes, clothes on it... fine, have at it.

**Don't interpret this to mean you have the right to use the custom content I used without credit to the original creator though.**

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

A great representation of the Melkor/Morgoth we all come to love and/or hate...
I feel like reading The Silmarillion.

Great Job! It is better than any Morgoth I could make.

Edit: Fixed spelling of first Morgoth.

As a Dark Servitor™ of the Dark Flame™ of the Dark Lord™, I hope to spread the Dark Message™ of His Dark Love™ to all the children of the world. I have pledged my soul to His Dark Majesty™ so that I may join in the Dark Assembly™ of the Dark Angels™ to do the Dark Work™ that is His Dark Bidding™ so much needed at the Dark Time™ in history. All should bow before His Dark Authority™!

Just an amazing and exquisitely detail character jmtmom -- I am truly impressed by your work and hope to see much more of your work posted =)

I am pretty proud of how he turned out. He's tough, but I think Tulkas could take him.

The only thing that I think could possibly be done to improve him is the addition of his crown of stolen Silmarills.

Wow. That's just amazing. But I agree, he needs his crown. Maybe you could start your design search here: http://www.john-howe.com/portfolio/...hp?image_id=964

I don't do creating for sims 2 anymore, sorry. Feel free to find a crown and link it or re-upload him with a crown.
