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.

Be a Troll.

Silly, you can't be a troll without these super cool candy corn colored horns!


There is one extra design for Aradia, due to popular demand, and a set of full horns for Equius.


Tell us about these horns!

This is a set of 14 troll horns, as seen on characters from Homestuck on MSPaintAdventures. Each of the twelve Troll has uniquely shaped horns that match their corresponding zodiac sign.

We've included a few example images below of the horns in actual gameplay, just to give a feel of how they look when Sims are actually interacting and not just standing there.

Where can I find these in CAS?

All of these can be found in the Earrings section from Teen to Elder, for both Male and Female sims. Each has its own thumbnail image, so you won't be able to miss them. In case your Sims do need their earrings though, they are easily recategorizable in s3pe. These are NOT set to Random, so you don't have to worry about random sims running around with crazy horns.

However, there is a weird texture thing going on for some of these horns in Create-A-Sim. This is normal, and while I figure out how to fix it, just leave it be as it doesn't affect any graphics once you actually get out of Create-A-Sim.

Is that it?

Nope! As you can see in the following image, each horn has three areas that can be recolored any which way you desire. If you're not a Homestuck fan but still like how these horns look and want to use them for your own characters, it's easy to change the textures to any of your choice in Create-A-Style.




What if they don't fit my Sim's head exactly?

If you use custom head shaping sliders, these horns may not fit your Sims as-is. However, we've got an easy solution for that! Our Homestuck horns are 100% compatible with aWT's Hat Control Slider Set, which we extremely recommend. Even if the horns DO fit and you want to make adjustments anyway, these sliders should do the trick.


Where did you get that hair?

Hey! That's not the point of this upload! >:0 However, because we're nice, here's a list:
  • Aradia: here from Anubis360
  • Tavros: from Pets
  • Sollux: here from the Sims 3 store
  • Karkat: here from MyBlueBook
  • Nepeta: basegame
  • Kanaya: here from Savio
  • Terezi: here from MyBlueBook
  • Vriska: from Showtime
  • Equius: basegame
  • Gamzee: here from MyBlueBook
  • Eridan: here from Aikea-Guinea
  • Feferi: here from Ageiha

    Y'all are lovely awesome people for providing lovely awesome hair!


What about those cool zodiac shirts?

You can download them here .

Do NOT under any circumstances upload these elsewhere without permission, hotlink the files, nor share these claiming to be yours. You may modify these for your personal use, but ask and link me before re-uploading if you made any changes. If you want to share these to others, just link them to this post.

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.

Any odds of us getting some kid shirts along with those zodiac shirts once they're uploaded? And Dirk shades (since Dave's shades can be 'close-enough' simulated by vanilla content)?

EDIT: Damn, LongLiveHarryPotter7, don't know if that's your timezone, mine, or the forum's, but you just missed posting at 4:13 by one minute... If you'd just waited...

I wasn't able to manage the glasses due to my horrible meshing skills (and believe me, I've tried), but I've actually been working on some YA male t-shirts as a fun side-project. I already have John, Dave and all 12 trolls done but not uploaded yet and will probably move on to make Jake, Dirk, Roxy, Jane, Rose and Jade's when/if I get around to it. I was actually waiting to do them as an entire set with both male and female variants for YA-Elder, but the scope kinda threw me off.

Gamzee's horns didn't come with a custom thumbnail so it took me a bit to find them, but other than that, these look fantastic. Nice work!

Are you somehow related to Aradia? I have no idea who she is IRL but I happened to stumble across her website surfing one day for something completely unrelated to anything here (you know how that is on the web) but all these characters look like the ones she drew on her site so I was just wondering. LOVE the horns though anyway.

Simstuck, what have you done... I was intrigued by this Homestuck so I went to check it out. Now. I. Can't. Stop. Reading.

Thanks for the awesome horns, maybe I'll get to see them in my game. When I eventually get off MsPaintAdventures.

No one is related to Aradia. She's a fictional character from the webcomic Homestuck, as are all of the characters in the screenshots (and, between the name and the fact that you said these look like them, 'her' drawings), of which she is one. The site you found would more than likely be someone using the name because Aradia is her (or even his) favorite character or her/his 'patron troll' (each troll character is associated with a zodiac sign, and anyone hardcore into the fandom refers to the troll who shares their sign as their 'parton troll').

EDIT: I misread your post, didn't notice the part where you said you 'don't know who she is irl'. Still, the main point stands (not the part about no one being related to 'her', but the part about the characters being from a webcomic and the owner of the site you found having taken the name from the same webcomic).
