Hello, this is my first CC piece. Before I made my first script mod and my first cc piece. I have always wanted Flip Flops with realistic feet into the game. Although there were plenty of sandals with detailed feet. I could never find Flip Flops with detailed feet (Atleast downloads that would actually work). So, I decided to create Flip Flops with Detailed feet.

What It Does

This CC piece provides your sim with stylish Flip Flops with changeable nail polish color. Perfect for the summer time.

Important Information:

-Shoes for Females. Young Adults and Adults.
-Can be used in Everyday, Formal, Sleepwear, Athletic, Swimwear, and Naked.
-Compatible with Pregnant sims

-4 recolorable channels: Top/Bottom Flats, Flip Flop Straps, Strap between top/bottom Flats, and Nails.



PolyCount:

High Level of Detail
Verts: 3736 Faces: 6124
Medium Level of Detail
Verts: 231 Faces: 702
Low Level of Detail
Verts: 132 Faces: 306

Additional Information

-This Mesh is for sure a high poly amount. Just under the 8k amount recommended for shoes. The mesh has been smooth on my system. However, that is coming from an individual with a high end pc and who has done everything possible to make the game run as smooth as possible. Nrass, Smooth patch, Merging CC using CC Magic, making the game recognize my GPU, Making the game use more VRAM, Making the game use more CPU, Limiting FPS, etc. So just keep in mind that this mesh may be tough for some lower end PC's, so use sparringly if you wish to use.

Inspiration:
It was just something that I personally wanted and that I could produce due to my work ethic and help from a CC Veteran.

-Frankie, AKA Eikeeful, AKA Gruesim, AKA SimplyImaginaryPeople
I want to sincerely thank Frankie for literally everything. Her tutorials were a massive help. Additionally, she answered any questions I had during the whole process. So much so, that I am honestly surprised that she didn't just make the project herself. Thanks to her, I was able to finish my Flip Flops project within 1-2 weeks. Otherwise it would of either tooken me months, or it would have never been accomplished.

-Chisami
Chisami's amazing Feet were used for this CC piece. Without Chisami's Feet, this project would not be complete.

Made Using Marvelous Designer, Blender 2.79, MilkShape, PhotoShop 2022, MeshToolKit both 1.3.0.0 and The New MeshToolKit, TSR WorkShop, S3pe, S3rc

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.

Moving forward I will try to improve my meshing so I can make more complex sandals with Chisami's feet. As of this moment I have my eyes set in attempting to make Birkenstocks. Specifically the Arizona and Mayari design. If anyone has any suggestions on other sandals that would go well with Chisami's feet, let me know. As I well check them out, and make them a possible future project if they excite me.
