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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
UPDATED
Fixed the recolor packages specifically for those without Pets who have display issue with this accessory. Thanks to those who reported this issue.


Hi all....

Today I bring you something different from my usual upload. It's a new mesh ball chain accessory for your male sim. This ball chain is available for Adult/YA/Elder and even Teen.







Sorry, if the polys is kinda high but that's the lowest number I can reduced or else the accessory will look horrible. I bet you don't wanna know the original polycounts, though *lol*.

Special Feature:
* The pendant is alpha-editable so feel free to recolor them.
* I've added the envcube-shine to it so the ball chain and pendant will look shiny.
* Wearable with any accessories.
* Stay on all outfit and yes, even nude.

Along with this, I've made a massive collection of pendants and devided them into 4 categories:
* Black & Red
* Various
* Dark & Goth
* Rock Never Dies

NOTE:For those without Pets, please download the FIXED NON-PETS sets.


On to policy...

You may:
* Recolor them.
* Include my mesh in your package with credit and a link back to this thread.
* Redistribute them to any other sites that are FREE.
* Use my creation in snapshots, movies, stories, avatars, etc...with or without credit. No permission needed.

You may not:
* Claim them as your own.
* Clone, modify or edit my mesh in any way.
* Upload or redistribute my creation to any PAY-related sites.


Well, I hope you guys like them. Happy simming and enjoy :D.

xxNoogiexx


Polygon Counts:
FACES=2572
VERTICES=1405

Additional Credits:
*Thanks to Milkshape, Wes h's unimesh plugins, SimPE, and Ultimate Unwrap 3D.
*Mininessie's tutorial (and for all her help *hugs*) and also a lot of other tutorials here at MTS2.

Thank you for all your positive comments guys. I really appreciate it :D.

Hardy boyz: Indeed. The idea was originally inspired from them. Am a big fan too :D.

MJSpice2: Thanks :D. The eyes are by JoanneDyer here at MTS2, but it's no longer available anymore since JoanneDyer took out all her stuffs.

Nephertinna: I'm sorry, I was not planning to make them for females, actually. The original plan was for male sims only .

Plicka: So am I. I can't believe it either .

These are amazing!

I have a question, though. If you have Bon Voyage, will these be in the appropriate jewelry categories?

I would guess not, since it says it doesn't require BV. Is there any chance the creator could release BV versions with the proper jewelry categorization?

Otherwise you can do it yourself with the Wardrobe Wrangler.

Xxo Marlie oxX: No, I don't think so.

Ionopachys: No, I don't think I could fulfill your request for two reasons. One, because I don't have BV installed and two, BV slows my game pretty bad so that's the reason it will never be installed .

And yes, you may use Wardrobe Wrangler to modify the ball chain to make them properly categorized in the jewelery section for your own personal use. Just please do not alter the mesh file.
