For Mae: Skysims 087 and 089 retextured!

*has the beginning of another cold and is covered in Hello Kitty band-aids while headbanging to The Retrosic's "The Storm"*

These two hairs have made me hostile to small creatures--so if you have one of those ugly, midget dogs anywhere in my vicinity and you don't want a 3 3/4 inch spikey heel taking the place of its face, get it somewhere safe. :3

Anyway....(note: that was sarcasm in case anyone didn't get that)

*shamelessly steals Elexis' heart wallpaper idea* Speaking of which...does anyone know if there are any high resolution patterns? Do they exist?

I unfortunately couldn't get rid of the residual grease Skysims hairs tend to leave no matter what texture you use. Oh well. I also did EA highlights for 089, but looks more useful as streaked hair :3

Does anyone happen to have a separate file (separate from a huge set I mean--so I can extract the .dds files) for these two store hairs (Duck's Tail, and Fins Out)? I would love to retexture these as they are my favourite male hairs (Duck's Tail reminds me of Alistair's hair from DA:O) :3 Hell, I'd retexture the whole store. XD


  1. has a bunch of insanely awesome HQ/HD wallpapers, available in a lot of different resolutions. :]

  2. Oh, I meant more like Sims 3 PATTERNS, however thank you for the links. THEY ARE NICE and now I am curious and have to find a new background :3

    1. I thought that might be what you meant AFTER I posted the comment :P

      Though its a little extra work, you could edit out the background from the picture of a Sim & put the Sim(s) over another picture, so you wouldn't have to use low quality patterns. And it would look kinda like Newsea's preview images... :)

  3. Ooooh thank you for the link to that tutorial. I SHALL DO THIS FROM NOW ON. Unless it turns out I suck at it.

  4. Oh my goodness, I'm beginning to think you're my new favorite retexture artist. Thank you so much for these!

  5. Thanks SOOOO much! You're the best! :D

  6. Aww! You are just the greatest! Thank you for taking my request! Immediately downloading!!

  7. You're welcome. I'm glad you requested them--I kind of like them now :3

  8. Here you go:

    Lovely retextures. :)

  9. O_O Wow, thank you so much Al! <3

  10. Hey I just made my own retextures and alpha edits(reversed and added more volume to 87 and widened 89) for these two hairs, and they look awesome but I have a question, did you have to ask Skysims for permission to post yours or no.

  11. No, I do not ask permission from pay creators as they will most likely not approve of putting their downloads that they charge for, up for free. :3

    If you're going to put them up for download, I would love to see them. I don't really have any mesh editing skills atm however these hairs DO need a lot of work and what you've done sounds awesome, so I say go for it! :D

  12. Thanks for getting back to me, unfortunatly when I added length to 89 I didn't know until I tested it in game that the end of the hair that I made longer would fly up XD. I'm still getting used to assigning vertices to body parts so the hairs can animate properly but hopefully I can fix it , but here's a link to the previewing post for it along with a few others:

  13. I think they look really nice. I especially love the animal print patterns. 089 <3

  14. Oooh, these look awesome! *downloading*
