This Anzac Soldier sim created by Kathleen (Complete Sim), Tiggerypum from MTS2 and with the help of Kathleen's wonderful husband Craig.

We created all the custom content:
Sim by Kathleen
Eyebrows by Kathleen
Eyes by Kathleen
Hat by Tiggerypum
Uniform by Kathleen and Tiggerypum

This download includes the necessary meshes - the hat and uniform are both custom meshes. Put the 3 mesh files into your downloads or saved sims folder. Then double click on the Sims2 pack to install him into your game.

The hat is an accessory, and can be worn with a handful of the short hairstyles. You can check Tiggerypum's profile to find another recolor of the hat.

This sim and other Anzac Day content is available at The Complete Sim

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Hey Guys

As a proud import Aussie (I was originally from Scotland) I am so stoked to get this project up on the site.. Just so you guys know we have the following items going up with our Anzac Day theme on Sunday.

1915 Era Art Deco Walls by Jacqueline
The Hall of Memory in the Australian War Memorial by Tom (and this lot is incredible, I've seen an exterior)
A selection of paintings done by Feleyra of some iconic images - Simpson and his Donkey, the Charge at Bersheeba, Anzac Cove right after the landing and a Frank Hurley shot of a Digger collecting poppies in Palestine..

Enjoy

All I can say is thank you,


The Ode for the Fallen

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Even if you dont well no worries. but great work.

Hey Guys

Thank you so much again for your wonderful feedback guys :-) It doesn't understate the point to say that Tig and I and the whole staff of Complete Sim have been touched by your comments (they've been watching the thread)

In relation to the Kiwi digger, we couldn't at this stage because this was a very intensive and difficult project for Tig and I to do and it would involve another new mesh which is a couple of week's work and right now, we both need to do something a little easier. But I promise, we will give it serious consideration for next year.

I also have some other projects in the back of my head for this theme later, like doing an Aboriginal Digger. There were a ton of Aboriginal soldiers like Reg Saunders who did Australia proud in the services but then often went back home and suffered horrible discrimination.

Anyone who's interested in looking up Reg Saunders can do so here. http://www.awm.gov.au/korea/faces/saunders/saunders.htm

I also want to do a sheila for my Digger later on too.. but there's room in the Sim world for more that one sheila I figure.. ;-)

Cheers
