Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Update: Fixed the Shiny Butt issue gwillewyn pointed out. Thanks to HP for solving it. Please download again, the new version should overwrite the old one. - Nov. 7, 2007

As my special 25th upload, Simspiration Studios Presents: Bunnies?!?!?

Not sure what Maxis was thinking when they made the Social Bunny all dirty and missing an eye. Maybe they were thinking dirty hobo, I don't know. If I had an imaginary friend, it would at least be clean.

Let me present to you a cleaner, brighter, two-eyed, and happier Social Bunny! Comes in three GREAT colors: blue, pink, and ... (wait for it) YELLOW! EXCITING! Never again will your sims have to talk to the dindgy, dirty, misbegotten bunny that was our social savior. Now we have a better brighter bunny! (Yes, I am having too much fun with alliteration, go look it up if you don't know what it means.)

I cleaned up all the bunnies, scrubbed at those green and brown stains till they all came out, washed their fur with a bunny-fur-friendly version of Tide with Bleach for Colors which brightens without fading, and then took them to get their missing eyes replaced. After a few hours in surgery, they have a set of perfectly matching eyes, and with time, might even gain full use of their replacement! Do your Social Bunnies a favor, help them out, download today!

These are DEFAULT REPLACEMENTS, meaning, when you place them in your downloads folder, they will act as the Maxis Social Bunny clothing, completely replacing their counterparts. This includes Social Bunnies, and sims dressed as bunnies, currently wearing them. If you want to remove mine and return to the maxis versions, just delete my package from your downloads folder.

BTW, I've got more default replacements, check them out here !


Additional Credits:
My thanks to the Social Bunnies for submitting to the baths and for agreeing to undergo optical replacement surgery.

They may have been thinking along the lines of "Person feels abandoned, an abandoned bunny toy comes to cheer them up"?

Anyway. Yay, thanks

Thank you...the other bunnies were absolutely hideous, of course maybe they had no friends so they figured,"Forget about hygiene!"

I'm not crazy...I'm "mentally happy"...

god, those bunnies were killing me. Literally. One of them kept getting my sim to talk to him, and he died of starvation. Thanks, maxis had no idea what they were getting themselves into with that bunny. This is really nice. At least they're not dirty anymore. Now, irritating, that's another story....

I didn't even know this was possible! I was like "Why would I trust a bunny with my sim's social if they can't even bathe themselves!" Thanks!

Aww, guys, you are hurting bunny's feelings! He's standing right there you know! There there bunny, they are trying to say that now you you are all clean and spiffy, they want to be your friend. It's ok, don't cry bunny.

Thanks for the comments! I LOVE hearing them (even if bunny doesn't)!
#10 Old 4th Sep 2007 at 6:28 AM
Ah yes, the poor abused social bunny. I've always wondered whether he's been mugged on the way over to my socially-starved sims' houses. lol, with a little TLC he's looking great! Thanks for this!

What are you all talking about??? Is this some kind of practical joke? or mass hallucination?

I've been playing for a long time (albeit Base & NL only) and I have no idea what this means. If this is leg-pulling you got mine.

Silky-M, you must take very good care of all of your Sims, which is a credit to you. When you do not look after a sim's social meter, and it gets extremely low, then the social bunny appears. Your sim can interact with the bunny, much as it can interact with other sims. In this way, you can get your sim's social meter back up.

Some of my sims are afraid of the social bunny! Come to think of it, if a huge, dirty, one-eyed rabbit suddenly appeared in my house, I would be afraid too! Maybe, with him cleaned up, they won't be afraid anymore. Or maybe not. :-)

I could of sworn that bunny killed my sim when he was tickling him. =O Anyways thank again. :D

You had eyes to see.
Need help with that rusty tool? x-x
#15 Old 4th Sep 2007 at 11:30 AM
I like it. I think it's also more therapeutic for lonely sims, to see a nice clean, two-eyed bunny instead of one that's seen much wear and tear. Thanks!

I quite like the maxis social bunny, but these are nice too My sims only see him on rare occassions now though, like when I accdiently leave the game running for an hour

Nice work, it really is. I'll send this the way of some people I know who don't like the Social Bunny's looks, namely because they don't get the in joke.

One eyed rabbit, dirty, came along side a death where a satellite falls from the sky...

Good Question.

That might have been the funniest description for a download that I've ever read. Thanks for brightening my morning (and the dear bunnies!). :D

I try, this is definitely my most entertaining description so far, but some of my other ones come close (Disney Babies for one). I was wondering when someone would comment on it, you are the first person to mention it! Congratulations!'ve won a ...special prize? maybe not. Oh well. Thanks for commenting!

No, I was in the operating room holding their paws the entire time. Bunnies can be rather timid you know, they appreciated the support. ;-)
#24 Old 4th Sep 2007 at 4:10 PM
Phaenoh you're so entertaining and clever! Thanks so much for cleaning up the bunnies and sharing them with us.

By the way, thanks for uploading this. I usually use bunnies and with their dirty textures and the missing eye, they weren't looking so nice.
I really love the blue one. Thanks a lot ! :D

I cannot take requests now.
