This download is part of the Medieval Creator Challenge
This set includes three versions of the NPC Mrs. Crumplebottom for your themed hoods. Choose from Royal, Peasant or Nun. Each comes complete with apparel, hair, purse and knitting distinct to her station.







INSTRUCTIONS:
Each Crumplebottom type is a separate download containing a folder with all all the necessary files to change her apparel and appearance. This is a default replacement, meaning you can only choose one 'type' of Crumplebottom you want to have at a time. Just add one of the preferred Crumplebottom folders to your Sims2 -> Downloads folder and she will instantly change. If you want to return to the original game NPC or use another default type, just remove or delete the Crumplebottom folder.

CREDITS:

Enblith the Fair for her Nun texture

Tiggerypum for mesh used on peasant Crumplebottom (MESH-tig-ef-layeredmedieval)

Zoej for peasant dress texture

This is amazing! Thank you!!

I read somewhere online that modifying Crumplebottom's files will break the game somehow. Does this replacement carry that risk?

I wouldn't think so, because this file isn't modifying any of her character files, just her appearance. You should never try to make Mrs Crumplebottom selectable, or teleport her to your house, or date her, or move her in-- the game treats her as an object, not a normal character. If you screw up her character files, which are stored in the Program Files folder rather than My Documents, you're sunk and you'll have to reinstall (or restore from a backup). The easiest way to avoid screwing up her character files is to only interact with her as the game intended, rather than using cheats (or hacked objects like teleporters) unwisely.

However, default replacements for meshes and textures should be fine; the files being modified aren't Mrs Crumplebottom's but a hair file, two accessory files (her knitting and her purse), and a clothing file. Those files aren't attached to Mrs Crumplebottom, she just references them. It's as safe as any other default replacement. If you're nervous, back up your Program Files/EA Games folder and your My Documents/EA Games folder before installing the defaults.

Naomijameston - I agree with Hat, these files do not actually modify the game programming or Crumplebottoms character behavior files, merely her appearance. But you should regularly back up your The Sims 2 folder just to be safe.

Brilliant! I love it - the knitting especially! I don't have a Medieval 'hood, but I'm sorely tempted to get me a Nun Crumplebottom anyway. I think every neighbourhood needs a Nun Crumplebottom.

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. I swear you and Almighty Hat are in league with one another to turn players medieval. Every time I see one of either of your offerings I come that much closer to throwing up my hands and giving in, and I think that Sr. Crumplebottom may have just tipped me over. Thanks so much!

I Love all 3! And you want me to choose?! Well, I think the one I find the funniest has to be the nun, so she'll be the evil purse wielding nun!

May I request that your recolors be uploaded as just that, recolors? They are fantastic, and my elderly sims never have enough different clothes!

Well, I think the nun outfit suits her best, she's always hitting my SelfSim with her purse, and a nun most likely frowns on gays. So that'll work! I love it!

Is it wrong that I want CrumpleNun even though I DON'T play a medieval neighborhood?

ScienceNerd - The nun apparel isnt strictly medieval, its quite timeless. Nuns have been wearing the same basic apparel for centuries. So, I think she will fit in modern neighborhoods quite well actually.

The nun is perfect for any neighborhood, from medieval to modern. And it fits with her programmed attitude as much as being an old widow. Bravo!
