Big is Beautiful Part 1

Happy Friday, everybody!

This is a side project I've been working on, on and off, for a while. I absolutely love the FrannySim's Momma Lisa body size. A short time ago, I needed a Momma Lisa-sized dress for a couple of characters in my story. I grabbed one of tiggerypum's already amazing Rengal dress meshes, did some tweaking, and finally managed to make a passable mesh. After some time, I smoothed out the mesh a bit and worked on the final version.

Today, I present a Momma Lisa layered medieval dress, in some of my favorite textures.

iamliz for the basic, peasant, and noble textures
andavri for the Shut Up and Drive textures

I had to do some cutting and pasting to get them to fit on the new mesh. Shut Up and Drive is one of my all-time favorite texture sets, and I sincerely hope I did them justice. As with all Momma Lisa meshes, there is some clipping. I did the best I could to smooth the mesh, but the butt still looks a bit lumpy.

These are how the dresses look in game:






I created two versions: BSOK'd and Tooltip'd. The BSOK version gives the dresses a custom icon and places them in the same place in the catalog as the other Momma Lisa clothing. The tooltip version isn't sorted in the catalog, and has a tooltip descrition of each dress instead of a custom icon.

Help for justJones!

Hey, guys!

I know I don't have the hugest following ever, but every little bit helps. As Simmers, we need to pull together as a community when times get tough.

NixNivis has asked for help spreading the word. justJones has had a run of bad luck these last few months and is seeking help from the community. In justJones's own words:

“It has been a rough several months for my family. My dad had a stroke (he’s made a wonderful recovery though), my mother-in-law passed away unexpectedly, we were without electric for a month, and all of this combined with my tendency to internalize everything caused something to break inside me and I spent several days at a psych hospital. With his mother passing away and me being in the hospital (we have 3 girls that I wasn’t there to take care of), my husband has missed a fair bit of work, he got no check at all a couple weeks ago. Bills have gotten behind, as well as new bills been added. $1300 for the hospital stay (after the insurance has paid their portion), $25 co-pay every week for therapy and $10 a month for meds. I worry about the continued financial strain and the affect it is having and will continue to have on my anxiety.”
