Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Hey everyone! Here is my second upload MTS2! Its Professor McGonagall!
Minerva McGonagall is the catty Transfiguration professor at Hogwarts. She may be rough on the outside, but she cares about her students deep down.

Important Information on Meshes
Okay, for some odd reason, I couldn't get the meshes into the sims2pack file. So the meshes for the hat and the dress are in the zip file, and can be extracted as regular .package files into your downloads folder. The Mesh for the glasses (which are awesome btw, thanks HP) must be downloaded from the link at the bottom of the page.

Credit for the hat mesh goes to Ronoake Sims.
Credit for the dress mesh goes to Parsimonious.

Thanks guys, enjoy! Also, huge thanks to everyone on this site. Most importantly everyone whose items that I included for this sim. You guys really help everyone out so much.

She´s so cute, thanks,
Is she an Elder in the game, or does she just look like one...?

No she just looks like one. I know she's supposed to be old but when I made her elder her faces got weird looking. So I just made her adult with wrinkles. :D

This looks amazing!! What are you working on next? Um, in the game the only thing that shows up is the outfit.
#13 Old 28th Jul 2008 at 5:30 AM
I haven't downloaded because I'm currently not playing anything related to the HP theme, but I must say, this sim looks marvelous! She is just as I pictured Minerva in my mind as I was reading the stories.

What if one little pop could open a world of wonder
So sensory, so satisfying. It's the magic Friskies makes happen every day in so many ways
Friskies, feed the senses. Cat sez eff that, gimme cheezburgers.

Hey, I love this one. Listen, I've been planning on doing a Harry Potter video with this creation of yours. So, if you let me use it I'd be very, very happy and I would, of course, credit you in the video.

Your pictures of Minerva look really good But I've got a problem with her. She doesn't show up in my game Her dress, makeup etc. can be used but the sim itself is not there... Maybe the file for the sim is missing in the Sims2Pack...?

I have the same problem as Nerfacie. I LOVE your version of Minerva, but I can't get the sim to show up, which saddens me as I was planning on using her in my HP film, which is an AU to the night Harry's parents died- this version has only James passing, Lily reuniting with Severus, latter becoming Harry's step-father. =P

But point is, I'd love it if you could update, or re-upload your sim please, thanks!
