This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

It was time for something experimental again, so here's Red XIII's coat, should people want it. Texturing animals is insanely hard, so I don't recommend it D: Naturally, I would have liked him to have his spikey hair but..yeah. Poor pets without CC.
He's a dog; it's the only way to get him at a large size.

I used Ticks-Tocks' great tutorial on making custom pet coats, find it here:

For this upload to show up, you need to unlock the Neon Green fur for dogs; at Ticks-Tocks' site you will find how to do so. If you just want the coat, you can find it under Neon Green SMOOTH. Sometimes you have to look hard for it, and have to hit the golden retriever standard coat first.

Please bear in mind that this file will OVERRIDE the Neon Green Smooth coat for dogs; it's a DEFAULT replacement.

If someone makes the ultimate Red XIII Sim with this..lemme know!

p.s. Should you really get stuck in finding him in the menu, you can always download the Sim you see in the pictures from my website; it will put him immediately in your custom folder.

Ahhh, now my Aerith and Sephy can have a new pet :3 Um, yeah. I remember something about custom collars...maybe I'm thinking of something else... but if you haven't looked in to that yet, you might be able to get him to have spikes still, if you work from there... just a thought.

If you really have that much trouble, just unlock the neon green fur and d/l the full RedXIII sim from my website. It will immediately put the sim in your dog folder.

If you want the full dog you need to get it from my website; this download is only the fur (which you also must download and unlock as per my directions). If you d/l the dog from my website and install it, then you can find it under large dogs.

This is so cool! Nanaki rocks! Now, if we could only find a way to enable him to sit on the sofa and read a book. I just don't have the heart to let my sims make him run after sticks and see him grovel =P

Now if only there were an Okami coat, all my Sims pets related dreams would come true!
#25 Old 12th Feb 2010 at 8:31 PM
Nanaki is one of my Favs After Sephiroth of course and Vincent is my Fav Good Guy. I always name Nanaki correctly so that when we get to the storyline where they find out his name is not Red XIII they go "Hmm Nanaki's real name is Nanaki?" Playing sims 2 again because Sims 3 got boring so thanks for making us a cute Nanaki, He's awesome!
