This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
I love drawing different kind of prosthetic limbs after I watched Full metal alchemist . And many months ago I just randomly started sketching one out for TS3 for fun. And now, after many obstacles along the way, they are finally DONE!! ;___;
This is totally custom design and hand painted by me, apart from the shapes of the clockwork pieces of steampunk arm, which were made with the help of brushes.

Does your space traveler need to look a bit cooler, edgier?
He needs to lose a limb. And with this prosthetic iron arm, losing limbs has never been more fun and cooler!
The sleek one looks like the parts could move smoothly, and it's fitted for the shape of the body.

Is your inventor sim a bit dangerous to him/herself? Why not to have them lose their arm and replace it with this self-assembled lookin' prosthetic arm!
I wanted the steampunk arm to feel homemade, a bit ramshackle. And like it takes a bit of an effort to move it, with odd creaking sounds. It also has a random wiring detail on the lower inner part, like it's been fixed and tuned on many occasions.

Have your Skywalkers been lightsabering (Lukeiamyour)father to son again?
Yeah Luke could finally join the Dark Side to end it all, but instead, why not to give them these arms so they can fight to the eternity!

This half-arm prosthesis is positioned so that it looks like the arm have been amputated/lightsaber slashed. It's modern, but a bit tuned with the wires and led lights on the wrist area.

The skin detail was a random idea, and I wanted to make it look like it's been under an acid attack. It has random circuits, led lights and wires (=all the good stuff!) showing under the burnt/melt areas.

See the pics to see all the details I put so much effort into, and see how versatile these really are!
Angsty jedis, war veterans, accident inclined inventors, space travelers, cyborgs..

These are all from teen to elder, both genders.
The arm prosthesis are under accessories, in right hand glove category.
The skin detail is under accessories, in left hand glove category.
All are one channel recolorable, and look amazing with the ambitions patch's new metal patterns!

THESE WILL APPEAR AS TOTALLY BLACK IN CAS (because apparently I accidentally did something odd with preset CAS colors) BUT ALL YOU NEED TO DO, IS TO USE THE CREATE-A-STYLE TOOL AS YOU WOULD WITH ANY OTHER PIECE OF CLOTHING. It's not a bug, it's not a glitch, it's just my bad.

CC on models:

Skywalker's hair by Peggyzone (free), converted by Anubis360
The skins are also from Peggyzone (free).
Hat is from Rose (free).
Red head's hair by Annihilation
Faux hawk hair converted from TS2 by Aikea Guinea
The shorts are by Rustynail.
ALL other CC is by me, can be found in my downloads section.

The clockwork brushes used in Steampunk arm by IntergalacticHussy .

Additional Credits:
Thanks to all who gave me great advice on how to improve the textures!

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.

Would it be possible to request more prosthetic arms? Like a skeleton arm? That's be cool.
Either way, thanks for making this set available.

Thank you so much! It's just very nice that modders add more things to the game so our sims can be diverse. Thank you for this contribution!

I wanted to do Nebula and Winter Soldier in TS3 but I still cannot because these arms are only right-sided (they both lost left arm). So many people asked you about this. Why didn't you add left arm?
