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.

Wow, it's been almost 2 years since I made anything for the Sims (yikes!). First I got sick, then my computer exploded, and once I recovered I had to finish my clinical year of school, so I've been far away from the Sims World. Recently, I started playing around with Sims 2 again, and I found some partly finished stuff hanging out in my folders, that I wanted to finish and post.

This is the first installment of my "found" content that I'd like to share. It's a teen conversion of the adult pre order bikini available with Seasons.



The mesh is base game compatible, has working fat and (for inteen users) pregnant morphs.

I've included the original Maxis colors (the brown retro print and the pink stripes) with 4 additional recolors of each of these. I've also made solid textures. There are 10 solid options. All files are named according to color, so you can keep only the ones you want. All colors are shown in the attached pictures. A copy of the mesh is included in each zip.



Please let me know if you have any problems or issues, or even if you don't. Thanks for looking

Polygon Counts:
2106 Faces, 1511 Vertices (the same as the Maxis original)

OMG, thanks! Now I can have it without having to have a pre-ordered copy of Seasons. Hmm, wonder if anyone will make retextures/recolors?

I did make them. I used the striped texture as a base, borrowed details from it and did some (admittedly crude) hand painting, then used a seamless nylon texture as an overlay to give it some depth. I wanted plain textures, because it's what I usually gravitate toward myself.

No, it should be compatible with just the base game with no preorders or EPs. Let me know if it's not.

Is there any chance you could recolor the adult version? There aren't many recolors for this swimsuit.

I actually have repository recolor packages of the solids for my own use. I'll try to put them up in a couple of days. I need to take pictures of them, and put everything together.
