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.

Good day MTS members.

Im reviewing and remaking my old stuff for you. Im checking if my old items can be improved. This is my first 11 item set.



They are nine new piercings that can be worn in left and right ears ( semi-layerable) and two more updated that can be worn one at a time (not layerable)

The ones that can be worn in left and right ears are:

a) Five piercings that were remeshed from zero based on these ones:

OLD------------NEW

Plug------------Plug (Remeshed)
Hook-----------Hookspi (The hook has a spiral now)
claw------------Crescent (Remeshed ,renamed )
Fish hook------Fishhook (Remeshed)
Taper----------Taper(Remeshed)

b) Four brand new piercings

Twist: A crescent with a twister form.
Spiral: A piercing with an "e" form
Ear ladder: A ladder made of eight rings for the ear.
Bold-hoop: Small hoop earrings for left or right ear.

The last two piercings can only be worn one at a time and are updated versions of old ones.

Huge plug: updated the weightbones so it can facial morph correctly.
Huge tunnel:updated the weightbones so it can facial morph correctly.

Here they are some angles of the piercings. They can be worn by male and female sims and from teen to elder age groups.



In the screenshots at the bottom of the post you can check the different recolors of the piercings. Each color is a recolorable channel with exception of the diamonds in the

huge plug, huge tunnel and bold-hoop and also the hole in the plug piercing in the third recolor.

Note:

These are .package files so you need to put them in your mod folders. If you have trouble please check the install instruction at the bottom of the post.

Any comments and suggestions are welcome.

Polygon Counts:
x1 means this item is a left/right earring and need to sum the polys/vertex if you put an item on the other ear.
x2 means this item is earrings and you can only worn one at a time

I preserve the original EA mesh for the low detail with 14 polys and 19 vertex.

---NAME----------------HIGH--------------MED
---------------------Poly---Vertex-----Poly---Vertex

x1 Spiral------------496-----250-------124-----164
x1 Twist------------304------154-------76------40
x1 Crescent--------304------154-------76------40
x1 Hookspi---------496------250-------124-----164
x1 Fishhook--------336------170-------84------44
x1 Taper-----------208------106-------52------28
x1 Plug-------------72--------82--------72------82
x1 Ladder-----------640-----320-------392-----228
x1 Bold-hoop-------188------210-------122-----144

x2 Huge plug------716------762-------716-----762
x2 Huge tunnel----1141----1096-------1141---1096

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Oh yes. I took all the old creations down for a revision or/and update, sorry. Im still updating the old stuff.
Im glad you like this new version of the set and that you would like them for real life.
Making S3 items are more complex than S2 items.

put them all into an "ALL" File. People will be more prone to download them. Also, the things that say HUGE on them (aka the ones with the added ear skin) don't look so good.....

Is this available for use in TS3 alone, or would I need an expansion pack of some kind? Thanks.

I absolutely second this. I like how you make it so people can pick and choose, but for those who would like to use them all, downloading each and every single one can be quite tedious. If at all possible, an ALL file would be much appreciated. Thanks.

That said, I'll probably pick and choose a few of these myself. I like the look of the ear ladder, for instance (my pierced/tattooed biker sim will love it for sure, hehe).

Oh, and I second the suggestion for belly button and facial piercings! It's so hard to find good ones... every single monroe or labret I've found just looks like a mole on the sim's face...
