Could anyone refer me to some sims stories to read.. Kind of bored
Heya! How’s it been? Man, I was about to ditch Sims for a while (dying community U_U, lack of inspiration, me slowly loosing my eyesight to my computer shenanigans, and moving on with other interests in general), but I checked and damn, 20,000+ downloads! Y’all are wild! So I’m gonna pack my exhausted self and chuck on for y’all- thus as if it’s my last! (hope y’all like the cheeky k-pop reference there)
Also hope you dont mind the new preview style and the lack of a chair, lol. I was trying something new… and major thanks to the custom content master @baufive for saving my noob channel mistakes, again!
So cheers, and let’s hope to many more! :)
Hey guys! I’m going to show you my way of adding bones & morph to a clothing (whether it’s your own mesh or a S4-S3 conversion!). i know there is a tutorial to do this on @sims3tutorialhub (you should really check out this blog, it’s so helpful!!!!), but in my case I always had this issue when importing :
And it’s really frustrating XD
What you’ll need for this tutorial :
- Milkshape 3D
- Mesh ToolKit
- TSR Workshop (the old version I think, which you can grab here!)
- A bones reference (which you can get from exporting a nude clothing (top/bottom or swimsuit for females on the Workshop)
- A morph reference (I use these ones)
- I assume you have basic knowledge about how this will work, but feel free to ask questions !
You can see this tutorial on my blogger if one day my Tumblr would get deleted :/
ADD BONES (you’ll need to do that before adding morph) :
So first, I will use a conversion I did of EllieSimple SilkRomper as an example for this tuto (I already converted it, you can grab it here).
Here is the Milkshape view. To add proper bones to a clothing, the mesh shouldn’t be super high poly or it won’t work (it will explose and TSR will crash…). You need to reduce the poly of the mesh only by going to Tools/DirectX Mesh Tools (Autosmooth under the group panel needs to be ticked!). I usually reduce it to 5000-7000 poly (which is already kinda high) to not loose to much quality of the mesh. When it’s done, regroup the body & the clothe and rename it “group_base”, then export as .wso. I usually name it high, but you can name it as you want :)
Now open Mesh tool kit and go to “Auto Tools for WSO” (Auto-Assign Bones panel).
Use as reference mesh the nude mesh you exported from the TSRWS, and use the “High.wso” file as WSO mesh to modify. It should look like this :
Click “Do Assignments and Save” and replace the “High.wso” file. You have now assigned the basic bones to your clothe. But when doing this, you’ll have an issue with the hands bones (they will distort in game), so we need to fix that ! Go back to MilkShape 3D, untick the AutoSmooth box under the Group tab, and import the High.wso file
Use the selection tool under the model tab and select the hands (both right & left) :
Now go to the Joint tab and click the clear button :
This action removed the bad bones from the hand, so you can now assign better ones! Export this as highnohand.wso (this is how I usually name this file, but feel free to change!)
Go back to MeshToolKit and select the highnohand.wso as “.wso mesh to modify”. You need to check “Replace only empty bone assignments” instead of “Replace all bone assignments” !! Click “Do assignments and save” and save it as highgoodhand.wso
Now open the WorkShop, go to mesh and import the highgoodhand.wso. Click “Yes then “yes”
Now you’re done assigning bones, you can now add morph to the mesh!
ADD MORPH :
Export this mesh as .wso, I name it “afterWS”, and import it in Milkshape 3d (you still need to have autosmooth unticked!). If you go into the Group tab you’ll see it has now 5groups, corresponding to the morph (tho it still hasn’t got any!)
Delete all the groups except for “group_base” and export it as “afterMD.wso”
Open MeshToolKit and now go to Auto-create Morph.
Use as “Reference WSO mesh” the “Adult Female All Morph - Including Pregnancy” you downloaded from Sims3TutorialHub, and use as “WSO mesh to morph” the “AfterMD.wso”. Click “Create Morph Meshgroups” and save it as “morph.wso”
Now you can import this wso in the TSRWS, click “Yes” then “yes” again. Your clothes has now Bones & Morph, and you avoided the “Unmatched number of Vertices issue !!!!!
You can now click on the “…” next to the Mesh, choose “GEOM Vertices Editor.
Then change the TagValue to “FFFFFFFF” (8F), right click, copy to all, then click done.
The High LOD (or LOD0) is now ready! Now do other LOD !
It’s the end of the tuto! If you need more tutorials on how to create clothes, please check this page!
I know it might be looking like another tutorials, it’s because I first some of these tricks from others! But I don’t think there is exactly one like mine, and I know I’ve been struggling with the “Unmatched number of vertices” issue for a veeeeeeeery long time XD
I want to thanks @simplyimaginarypeople, @mimisapje & @sims3tutorialhub for their tutorials and for helping me when I was in trouble ! If you have any questions or suggestions about how to improve the tuto, please message me (off anon would be better) and I’ll try to help you :D
I’d really like to follow more simblrs like me, making stories with their diverse sims. It just kinda gets tiring seeing white sims, legacies, ect. My dashboard needs more diversity. It doesn’t matter if you post ts2, ts3 or ts4.
Latina af here
I don’t post legacies or anything about my gameplay tbh but I do make cc that looks good on all skin colors and bodyshapes 🤗
| Farewell TS3 |
Some of you may have been able to tell by now but I’m gonna make a post to sorta finalize things. I’m positive at this point I won’t be making a return to TS3. It was a nice run but I’m happy to say I’m done with
my queents3. I may once & awhile go back to take pictures but in this moment I won’t be.
What this means for my cc? All my s3cc at this point is unsupported. If links on my blog or @sssvitlans go down, I don’t have the files on my computer so I won’t be able to keep up with them or put them back up though as long as @simfileshare is up you can download my things here.
Can you upload your characters &/or their skins? Nope, Though I’m leaving I still wanna keep my things. Please don’t ask.
Can I edit your cc? Do whatever you want. Just no paysites or reuploading. And if you edit them credit me. Though edits/retextures/conversions are off limits if you use patreon or adfly.
I think that’s all I had to say though for my ts3. Also if you are having issues I won’t be much help anymore. Sorry but I just don’t wanna lead anyone on by making them think I’m coming back anytime soon. Thank you if you took the time to read & understand where I was coming from! My ts3 followers will always have a special place in my heart & i wouldn’t have had such an amazing time as a creator if it weren’t for you all that got me started. ♥
Every now and then I get a message about traffic issues on my old cc, so I reuploaded all my old sims 3 cc links that didn’t use simfileshare. Eventually I’ll be taking all the old links down but for now they are still up if they work.
Also if you need to know what each file is for just go through this tag.
TS3 Glow (Blush)
I made this blush that consists of contour and highlights for the nose and cheek , so that it gives your sims a glowing and radiant face!
Adding a glowing touch to any skin tone. Hope you enjoy! :)

Hair, Boyfriend Boxers, Sports Bra
hey guys! I fixed my game.. kind of. Had to use my file backups from December, so i’m a couple months behind in all my game play. Anyway, these are a couple of things I was working on before I started having issues and just finished up. Boxers and sports bra come with 4 presets (one plain) *waistband on boxers looks weird in CAS but fine in game, pictures are unedited so what you see is what you get.
*hair texture credit goes to @applekissims *

As inspired by the star of a certain cult hit tv show from the early 90s… Another addition to my ‘specific set of contacts I made for a specific sim’ collection.
I love him and I love his eyes. ‘Nuff said.
The eyes come in two mini-flavors which are just slightly different catchlights, as seen above. They’re a hazel color combination and for the most part, unrecolorable.
- 1024px (used actual ref pics and they weren’t super HQ/clear)
- Three channels | Non-recolorable. Only there to lighten/darken eyes.
- Male & Female ~ Toddler - Elder // Disabled for Random // Thumbnail included
- Credits: Bioware for the texture I used as a sclera base; the legend, Kyle; TSRW
- Please adhere to my TOU (emphasis on NO REUPLOADING)
- To see these in action click here.
- Notes: The sim shown utilizes the aWT Eye Mesh Fix by Buhudain & the iris slider. The iris was not complete in the reference, so if there’s a slight texture change when you make the iris/eyeball too small, that’s why.
Press the heart button by the download one if you like them! A click goes a long way!
