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.
Finally! Some stuff for boys. I've made 24 pieces, so there's plenty to choose from.



To start things off, we have a pair of cropped pants with boots. They should work with all Maxis tops, and they have a working fat morph. The cropped pants come in six colours, and all of them come with black boots for stompin' around.

Then we have eighteen different polo shirts for boys. They're "untucked", so they're meant to layer over pants. The Maxis baggy pants don't look so great (unless you have the alpha fix by CatOfEvilGenius), but the skinny cowboy pants work well with these tops. I made six striped shirts and twelve plain shirts. All have a bunny embroidered on the chest (there's another bunny in this set, too... see if you can find it!). The shirts also have working fat morphs.







As you can see, by the time I got around to taking all the pictures, my models were getting a little bored... and silly. Sorry about the nose-picking.

I've played around with these meshes in the game, and I noticed that there's some weirdness when the Sims sit down to play Mary Mack. The torso almost "floats" above the body; you can see right through! I have no idea how to fix that (or if it's even fixable with separates), so it'll just have to stay like that. Your Sims won't break in half... I promise.



Polygon Counts:
cropped cargo pants = 966
polo shirt = 1234

Additional Credits:
Thanks to melodie9 for the hairstyle age conversions and to HystericalParoxysm for the cute curly hair.

A big thanks to CatOfEvilGenius and HP who helped me work out the bugs in the pants mesh!

These polo shirts are great AND they have bunnies! You got the stripes to look evenly sized and spaced. How? HOW??? Man, if I knew you were making polos, I wouldn't have just spent days making stupid amounts of polos myself! I *just* submitted mine when yours got accepted! Ah well. Yours are different. And better! Waaaah!

I think I mostly gave advice that didn't fix the mesh at all, and HP said the one thing we thought couldn't possibly be it, but you're welcome! Now we've learned to never ever assume anything about meshes!

*grabbity grab grab*

PS I like the stompy boots on the pants, very boyish.

The secret bunny, where could it be? Pants pocket? Belt buckle? Shoe? Shoe sole? I will find it... Is it cheating to look at the texture?

I am laughing SO HARD at that kid digging for gold. Great set!

I basically just like to play uglacies.

Genius! These are pure Genius!

I don't get why so many Simmers hate Marsha Bruenig. She actually grows up to be quite pretty if you allow her to.
