Sims 3: Random stuff!

From Sims 3

So hooray! I finally found some cute little cherub wings for Derpy! I wanted maller wings for her than the full spread wings since the Pony-Derpy's got little wings!
.... and I can't remember for the life of me where on the site I found them! I do know though, it came off the same site I got the Pegasus wings for my horses!

Site needs registration... and a translation for the Russian, too.

Sadly... the wings are slotted under saddles... so unless you want your horse going around with negative 'get this f'ing Saddle off me! NOW!' moodlets... you have to take em off.

This is actually Fireball's daughter. I decided to use Mockingjay's pinto patterning on her. She was this shade of gold already so I just applied the coat to her and named her Katniss (yes, the Hunger Games fandom goes on!).

Tal can haz nose!!! :D
I actually never got round to making this... someone ELSE converted the noses from Genensims to Sims 3. FINALLY! Thank you, Pyxiidis!

Sadly, so far, they're only available for young adult. :( So Tosca has no fuzzy person nose. Nor will Harper when he's 'born'.

Nevertheless, it's something I've wanted for Tal for ages! So... HAPPY!

I also made this little Sim for when Supernatural comes out. She'll be my first faery.

Her name is Tink Arabelle! :D
Granted, her face structure is a lot like Tinara's, I realize. (I need to get away from the cute little heart shape faces I keep making on my girls. I have no originality. Thing is,it felt right with the faery vibe and I wanted a vaguely anime/magical girl look. It occurs to me her face would also make a nice Sailor Moon face sans the ears.

Traits: Computer Whiz, Great Kisser, Kleptomaniac, Shy, Car Enthusiast! 
Lifetime Wish: The Tinkerer. Mastering Handiness and Logic.
Yeah... she's a little.... strange as far as faeries go!

Your faery is beautiful! Hey, nothing wrong with heart-shaped faces. They are probably universally aesthetically pleasing. :) I love her gown!

That's so great that someone converted the noses, finally! But I hope they do them for other ages, too.

The smaller wings look better for Derpy. *approving nod* I like the horse wings too. And for some reason it amuses me that horses get a saddle moodlet. Too bad about the wings being saddles in that context, though. :(

Back to faeries, have you ever read Emma Bull's Finder? It's set in the shared Bordertown universe (there are several books, they're all pretty good too). In Finder, one of the main characters is an elf who's a kick-ass mechanic and rides a motorcycle with a sidecar. Your tinkering, vehicle enthusiast fae put me in mind of her. :) (That character is also why I wanted a Mechano-hog so bad for my elf hunter in WoW... so happy when I finally got one!)

That sounds like an elf up my alley! The funny thing is, I was reminded of the little movie Disney came out with recently to show Tinkerbell's origins. (Hence Tink's name. :p )

It's a pretty cute movie and just endeared Tinkerbell to me even more than I already did. She's like... a total Fairy mechanical nerd! :)

I absolutely squeed when I saw the Indian clothes. I'd had it for about a month looking for JUST the right Sim to put those clothes on. Even Pietro has some of the clothes for his formal or his second outfit.

Wings are such a lacking thing for Sims 3. The ones that DO exist look really wretched or roll like Derpy's bigger wings did. The modeling is horrible and some of the TS2's best wing creators are being snobbish about anyone converting their wings to TS3. So I take what I CAN find.
I was a little sad that the horse-wings were BETTER modeling than the Sim-wings.
And yeah, horses get negative saddle moodlets if you leave them in their saddle for too long! I think the reason the creator put them on saddle, though, was PROBABLY to avoid saddle-wing clipping, I suspect. Would have been better if she had made them accessories but understandable. It's fun for screencaps, though! And riding around!

I didn't know about the Tinkerbell movie (just looked it up, though). It sounds cute. I like the idea of tinkering faeries. :)

I have my eye on the Indian clothes, but I'm holding off for now... I also have my eye on a combined future/retro pack which I'll probably get first. I haven't tried the pirated versions of anything yet and I might just steer clear of that scene.

EA should just make their own wings. They'd probably look great if EA made them (MM and proud!)

The pirated stuff is nice if you want to just see what it looks like in-game but it's a hassle to jailbreak it because you have to find the decompressorizor program and run JUST those files through it and all this mess.

And in the long run, there's no support for the jail-broke stuff any ways, so if patches come up that change subtle functions in the furnishings like Pets did with the beds and sofas and such... you now have a whole bunch of furniture that will crash your game. Not worth it. I'd rather pay for the stuff in the end.

And yes, I think they WOULD make nice looking wings. The little wings on the Valentine's boy costume look wonderful to me, sadly, they're boy only and they LOOK like they were little costume wings since they have the little straps around the front. But the modeling was wonderful. (It was a freebie for Valentine's Day)

Like Derpy's new wings and Katniss looks good in the golden white pinto/paint pattern. The gold really glows against the white.

I may have seen another set of Pegasus wings, not attached to saddles. I say 'may' because I can't quite remember where I was... hmm, need to think.

Thanks for the links to the Russian site. Spongebob nails! Lol. I like looking at Custom Content. Don't download a lot of it but like looking, people are so creative.

And on that note. Love the nose! That's so cute. May have to download that, lol.

Tink is lovely and does have a slight anime look to her. She looks gorgeous in that outfit too. Loving her earrings. Like the colours too, gives it an other-worldly feel. I don't see anything wrong with you using a similar face shape, she looks as you felt she should look. It's all good.

Right, I'm off to check out those links, look up details of the book Pixel mentioned and also see if I did see some other wings for horses. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Possibly you saw the Pegasus wings being used on Silverdragon's site? that was where I found them initially was from your link of the various fur-patterns/textures for the horses, then went browsing the site, discovered her pegasi in her stable, squee'd for about five minutes then begged her for the link! She posted it a few days later!

That Russian site has some links to some marvelous content. I browsed it for quite a while when I found Derpy's wings! It was a little "Angel" set. Has a halo and dress which I quickly discarded because I don't ever seem to make angelic or demonic Sims. Just winged ones! :p

Initially that golden pinto pattern I had on the Vanner I named MockingJay. I put it on that one and thought... Oh! It looks even cooler on her, so I went with the theme and kept with the Katniss theme for her, too.

I think you're right about Silverdragon's site.

I still think I've seen another pair somewhere though... can't find it at the moment.

On the Equus forum they mentioned wings as accessories but the link they gave is to the site that you used. There was another download link mentioned, direct to a mediafire download, but the poster said that they were attached to saddles and I'm almost certain that they are the same wings.

Here's the forum link: http://forum.equus-sims.com/index.cgi?board=wcif&action=display&thread=1861

I agree that golden pinto pattern looks glorious on her and the wings are lovely, just a shame that you can't keep them on all the time... though, maybe when Pegasus style unicorns fold their wings, they magically disappear? *shrugs and grins*



Edit: They are the same :(

There are these but they're not really what you want:

Yeah those are the same ones and I pretty much decided, "Sure, yeah. THey go away when they're not 'flying' around. I'm good with that!

The second wings aren't all that great looking, sadly. Although the upside, I can now access SimCave again. I could never figure out what the link was to that site! :D

Oh for crying out loud... I found the wings, posted the link for others, and it considers me spam? *sighs at LJ* :P

That completely figures, too. I'm glad yo ufound the wings, too. The only problem with them, I have is they occasionally tilt on my Sims. :(

Hrmm, I'll have to keep that in mind then. Still! It's a nice alternative for non-fairy Sims. (Not that I make that many angels... but like everyone else, I love wings!) XD

Now, if I could just find the other saddle with wings that I accidentally ran across. (I saw it on the exchange, on a horse, so no guarantee DLing would give it to me, unless I know where it is.) This wasn't a pair of wings though.

It was a normal looking saddle that had a nice wing motif on the side. It might even be in the game; I haven't looked yet (I got sidetracked into hunting this down first), but I was kicking myself for not bookmarking the horse I saw it on. Then I would have a point of reference, at least. :P

Huh! I haven't seen that one. That sounds like a saddle that'd be nice on my Pegasus.
Incidentally, for a great database for horse-Sims things. Take a look at this forum. Maybe you'll find what you're looking for, there.

It's also possible I'm remembering it incorrectly, which is why I'm so annoyed with myself for not bookmarking the horse. I wish I could at least confirm that I didn't imagine it or mistake a simple recolor of the Western Saddle for something else. :P

But oooh, thank you so much! I knew about Equus Sims, but it seemed like I had to join first, before I could look at any of the content they have. I did apply, since it seemed like a cool place, but in the meantime this will help a lot. :D
