Outdoor Adventure Vehicles


So this set is a bit unexpected, but I wanted to give the fans an upload to enjoy this week, and I'm not quite ready to upload my next posebox on the 18+ blog yet. These started as a set of objects to be used with those poses, but I did some heavy polishing and really made them pop on their own. As an 'ol boy from Colorado, I've done all of these at one time or another. For easy location of the objects in the catalog, I've included a collection file.

While I can't take credit for the meshes, it did take a lot of time to remesh, reposition, remap, and retexture all four objects. Eventually, I'm going to create some paddle and life vest accessories for the raft and the canoe, and a set of family-friendly poses for all of the objects.

10/2 Important update: I resized the snowmobile mesh and chopped the footprint down to 3x3. Please redownload.

Here are the details:



ATV
Details:
Catalog: Misc/ misc. §1100
Polys: 8557
Recolorable subsets: Body
Egghead stuff: The object is on a 3x3 tile footprint and can't be placed on a slope



Snowmobile

Details:
Catalog: Misc/ misc. §1100
Polys: 3694
Recolorable subsets: Body
Egghead stuff: The object is on a 4x3 tile footprint and can't be placed on a slope. It looks better on snow, but the frost obscures the textures. I took the pictures without snow for a better representation of the texture.




Raft

Details:
Catalog: Misc/ cars. §700
Polys: 2978
Recolorable subsets: Body. The cleats can't be recolored.
Egghead stuff: The object is on a 1x1 tile footprint, so sims may walk through it. There's a slave object set at the level of the waterline (for placing in beach lots). I'm still working on poses for this object. To place the slave object, it's necessary to use the move_objects on cheat.





Canoe

Details:
Catalog: Misc/ cars. §700
Polys: 10056
Recolorable subsets: Body. The thwarts can't be recolored.
Egghead stuff: The object is on a 1x1 tile footprint, so sims may walk through it. There's a slave object set at the level of the waterline (for placing in beach lots). I'm still working on poses for this object. To place the slave object, it's necessary to use the move_objects on cheat.

Project Age of Honor- Boots and Gauntlets Separates

This is a new project that (if I ever get off my lazy bum and complete it) will do for Klingon uniforms what Project 2395 did for Starfleet uniforms. Eventually, I intend to make two or three uniform sets in all the same commonly used sizes (AM, ATH, LBB, SBB, BB, HBB, AF, FM, FitChick, Sussi, Rio, CPU, TF, TM, and TLBB), plus armor accessories, weapons, insignia, and so on.

NixNivis is an old friend, and I've always adored the Klingon uniforms she created oh so long ago. With her permission, I've extracted the boots and gauntlets from the original meshes and refoobulated them into accessories for variously-sized sims.

10/2 Important Update: I fixed the specularity issue on the TXMT. The boots are now much less shiny and more realistically textured. Please re-download.



The mesh has been tweaked to work with Maxis blockfeet. It works well with nude meshes for creating skin tight outfits. I haven't done a whole lot of testing, but I'm sure that it can be combined with other clothing as well. There are minor clipping issues with the larger boot sized (Size 3 and 4) when the sim is moving the legs at sharp angles (such as when running).

Project Age of Honor is made with a custom Body Shop icon and has its own category in the catalog. The icon goes in your Downloads folder. The new accessories appear in your catalog AFTER the standard custom content.


Here are the downloads. Enjoy.
