SKU Sims

I have finally found a way to combine my two greatest obsessions. I've only recolored the hair used for Saionji, Anthy, and Ruka myself, but the rest I mainly cobbled together from spending WAY too much time searching for good downloads. I'll hopefully have those recolors up for download on modthesims2.com in a couple of days. I apologize for my crappy graphics card.

This is the closest I could get to making Akio's tower. Sims2 won't let you go farther than three stories, which gives him quite a choad.

Me being able to do any of this is due to these tutorials:
http://www.modthesims2.com/forumdisplay.php?f=249

Also, you don't want to see the dog that I tried to make look like ChuChu. Freakin' heinous.

So we've gotten pretty close, all things considering. I was hoping that maybe compiling everything I can find out there would not only give an idea of what we can already play with, but perhaps rally some fellow Sim players and Utena fans to help me fill in the gaps of what we don't have. I'm absolutely dumb as a brick when it comes to Photoshop, but the tutorials allowed me to make a hair recolor in about a half hour. I know there's some people on here with far more knowledge of picture editing than me. Making clothing is absolutely beyond me, which is a shame because we basically have the materials to make all the Student Council uniforms and Rose Bride dresses without even having to make a new mesh(and I've even stumbled upon meshes for other random outfits, like Touga's gift dress to Utena). And ModtheSims2.com has a tutorial for basically anything you could want to do.

Not only do the tutorials teach you how to do it, but they mostly explain it using a program which can be downloaded for free. This is something everyone with the Sims2 game can do. I've never opened Photoshop in my life, and I still managed a few things. Not too hard. So is anyone interested? What do you think?

Re: SKU Sims

Heh, you beat me to creating this thread.  I recently made a hoard of Utena Sims, myself -- they're missing the custom uniforms I made, though, which are on my computer at home.  I'll have to remember to get them when I head back for the holidays.

I really like having the Student Council be a Greek House in University.

New uniforms? Ooooh, Mama likes. etc-love Not a huge fan of the ones in the pics, but they're the only ones out there right now. I made it just a regular neighborhood because I personally find Sims University to be the most boring thing ever.

Re: SKU Sims

I need to get the Apple version of The Sims 2 RIGHT NOW!

I have the first version for my old PC, which I never use anymore, but seeing this makes me want to break it out again.  I used to have a Tenchi Muyo character set for that.

Ragnarok, you're absolutely right, The Sims takes up whatever you previously had as free time and uses every last bit of it up, and then cuts into time you had wanted to set aside for other things... like eating and sleeping. emot-biggrin

Your Saionji seems to have at least as many issues as anime Saionji. emot-keke

Gah, I attempted some meshing and failed... Miserably…

I love your Utena~ I’ve used the Anthy wavy mesh to hell with my original characters though (then again, I get most of my hair from xmsims.com or peggysims2.net/index.htm)

Awesome job, can’t wait to start some drama.

Yes, Gio. Sims can have sex. In the original Sims, they had to have a specific bed to have sex. I'm not sure about the second one...

Re: SKU Sims

Yeah, in the Sims 2, they can make out/then sleep (or WooHoo) with anyone so long as the attraction rate is up. For instance, my disagreeable Anthy only sleeps with Utena (rarely at that) and slaps everyone else who tries to get friendly with her or Utena. While, Utena, with her perky stats pretty much sleeps with all the other Sims who are her friends (when Anthy's not around to slap them, she gets more action than Touga). Poor Saionji, due to me giving him 0 nice points, is still a virgin! emot-frown

Not only can they have sex, but if you've got all the expansion packs, they can have sex in elevators, cars, and dressing rooms. So the Akio car can be at least a little closer to the original. etc-wankgirl

I got Saionji in-character with the Insiminator. I can do practically anything with that. I figured that boy probably has some sort of heinous family problems, so I made him hate his Dad. What I didn't do was the freakin' huge grin his mother has in that picture when Saionji's bitching him out. Someone a little unhappy at home? But I gave him enough niceness points to where he probably can get laid...and if not, I can always force him. Want me to have him take a trip in the Akio car? school-devil

Re: SKU Sims

I love The Sims 2. I've been working on my Utena sims for quite a while now, and I have sims of Utena, Anthy, Akio, Touga, Saionji, Juri, Miki, Nanami, Wakaba, Shiori, Kozue, Kanae, Keiko, and Ruka... I might be forgetting someone. I actually make these sims for fun, so I've made so many that I'm running out of things to make. (I have all the movie clothes, duelist outfits, Rose Bride dresses, and minor clothes such as Utena's pajamas.) All of my sims do the craziest things. One household alone has over 1,000 pictures that I've taken.

http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a133/RzMule/Screen1.jpg
Toki ni ai wa tsuyoku~!

My Utena and Anthy sims were the first ones I made, and I adore them. They're perfect at everything they do, and people who upset them have a nasty tendency of turning up dead. (What? Townies lives are worthless, anyway.) They're a perfect couple, ignoring Anthy's affair with Akio... Not that Utena has ever found out. Akio, on the other hand, catches them together quite frequently, because Anthy often decides that, "Hey, two people who are in love with me are in the room at the moment. Now would be a great time to start making out with Utena!" And whenever that happens, he steals their newspaper and kicks over their trashcan. emot-gonk

http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a133/RzMule/Screen3.jpg
Watching Kozue play the piano with 0 creativity is very amusing. (Anyone who designs these can probably guess how difficult it was to make Juri's hair. This isn't a very good picture of it, but it actually came out pretty well.)

Ah, my three favorite characters. I started working on them when they went to college together. I wish there was a way to turn off jealousy, since I can never decide just one pairing. Once, when I was bored, I decided to cause some chaos by having Kozue and Shiori kiss in front of Juri, which triggered the usual jealousy reaction. However, due to a glitch in the new expansion pack, Juri walked over to the nearest person (Nanami) and started making out with her just to piss them off... I was mad as well, even though technically I was the one who started it...

http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a133/RzMule/Screen4.jpg
There's gonna be another duel in the forest behind their house!

I just had to get a picture of my dueling arena. What an odd duel that is... Juri and Kozue are having a pillow fight while Shiori is the Rose Bride? I took a picture of the first thing I could think of for this thread. I actually have a video of a reenactment of Shiori's duel, with the duel song playing in the background. (Utena music plays on every channel of the radio, and I used to have music videos on the TV.) Watching Utena sims dance is the most entertaining thing in the world.


I don't feel like getting pictures of the rest of my sims at the moment. I'll try to get pictures of Ruka, Nanami and the rest when I get the chance. Nanami is another one of my favorite sims. Ruka hates me. I don't even remember what I did, but he tries to attack Shiori every time he sees her. I accidentally gave my Touga sim the Grilled Cheese aspiration, and never bothered to turn it back. Akio pimps the whole town. The first time I used my Wakaba and Saionji sims, they were accidentally killed in a fire. (There are lots of fires. I swear, Kozue does it just to annoy me. I'm terrified at the idea of seeing Shiori die in a fire, so I freak out as much as my sims do when a fire starts.)

As for sims having sex, yes they can, and in a lot of different places. Beds, hottubs, changing stalls, cars, photo booths, and elevators. The cars come in handy when I'm working on Akio's romance aspiration. Once two of my sims were "WooHooing" in an elevator, and suddenly it plummeted while they were in it. D:

And as for sexuality, their gender preference depends on who you have them date. For a while, I didn't know that their gender preference could change. My first experience with the pairing JurixShiori was, "I don't really like Shiori, but whatever makes Juri happy is fine with me." (Wow! That was a long time ago.) But Juri's gender preference was males, (I'm not sure how it got that way,) and so she wasn't attracted to Shiori, even though Shiori was desperately in love with her. It was sad to watch, but also very ironic. Eventually, though, her gender preference changed, and all was right with the world.

I can't thank you enough for informing me about this. With all the love triangles in this series, making relationships that follow the story line is very difficult when I have to deal with jealousy. And it's disturbing to see Akio with a memory that says, "Yee-ouch! I caught the love of my life in the arms of another sim, and it feels like my heart is breaking. How could my love do this to me?"

As for sharing my work, I've been meaning to post it on thesims2.com for a while now, but I haven't yet because most of the clothes have minor errors that I've neglected to fix. It's impossible to get a good view of their shoulders while designing, so I have to guess while making the shoulder-things. However, now that someone has asked, I'll start fixing those minor errors so that I can publish them as soon as possible.


Edit: I almost forgot about the music. In order to get custom music on The Sims 2, click on My Computer/PRESARIO/Documents and Settings/Compaq_Owner/My Documents/EA Games/The Sims 2. Once you find The Sims 2 folder, click on the 'Music' folder, and select a folder with the name of the radio station that you want the music to play on. 'Build' and 'buy' will make it so that music plays while you're in build mode and buy mode as well. Then copy and paste an MP3 file into the folder.

When you have the songs you like in the folders, you can start up the game and activate them in the sound adjustments section, which can be found clicking on the "..." button.

By doing that, your sims will be dancing to Zettai Unmei Mokushiroku and your favorite duel songs in no time. Not to mention any other songs that you like. emot-dance
