It has been some time, but I have not abandoned my goal to recreate the YuGiOh characters as Sims. I have climbed the learning curve into the mystical realm of 3D modeling and texturing, and now, I am back with some new meshing skills.

Marik Ishtar wears some distinctive jewelry, so I've begun by creating his earrings.



These earrings appear in CAS like any other accessories. You should only need the base game for them to work. They are enabled for all ages, genders and outfit categories, but you won't find them appearing on random sims.



There are 3 recolorable channels and 4 presets: rose gold, yellow gold, silver and a mix.



I optimized the poly count so these earrings should not slow down your game.

Level of Detail (LOD) Counts:

High:
190 vertices
352 triangles

Medium:
106 vertices
184 triangles

Low:
54 vertices
80 triangles

Since the bodies of each age group and gender are different, I’ve had to make small adjustments to the meshes and textures to have the earrings present correctly on each. Within the zip file download, you will find only one package file because I have merged all these versions together: pu, cu, tm, tf, am, af, em and ef.



Please do not upload my work on another site. I would like some credit for all the hard work I put in. This is for all the other Marik fans out there. Enjoy!

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.
