PONY KIDS

Yeehaw!!


Simblesse Oblige presents unique playable skins for a new fantasy character - Pony Kids.

Pony children have real pony traits - flowing mane and tail, a pony head, and hoof hands and feet with horseshoes.

The playable skins include a variety of casual skins for boy and girl ponies, plus their buyables and custom nudes.

Instead of lgt, med and drk skin tones, pony children come in white, bay and black tones.

Several Maxis meshes have been modified for the pony children. Some zips have several recoloured bmps, other zips may only have the Maxis bmp.

The new meshes include:

For Boys
- shorts & tshirt for boys (summer vacation)
- knee length pants and long sleeve shirt
- trousers/jeans and short sleeve shirt
- boardshort style swimmers

For Girls
- the 'nice' dress from the costume trunk
- straight knee length dress
- white lacy fun tina dress (from MM)
- denim betsy dress (from UL)
- disco shorts & jacket from the costume trunk
- one-piece swimmers

Universal (boys and girls use the same mesh)
- shorts and tshirt/short sleeve shirt
- pajamas
- winter wear (tunic & pants with fur trim)

Custom nude for white, bay and black pony kids
A combined mane & tail prop which we have already attached to the heads via the cmx files.

Put all the skins in your skins folder. For the heads there are some extra files, so make sure you put ALL skn, bmp and cmx files in your game's Skins folder. All skins have been named to be Mac compatible.




Making new pony children


In the Create A Sim Screen, for each skin tone you will see all the different pony heads (white, bay, black) show up. This is because the ponyhead is a prop that goes over a base head that is hidden in the game. (With the pony heads in your game remember it's entirely possible to see a tourist child with a pony head or a new baby with a pony head as the game assigns heads at random.)

When you make a new pony child with a pony casual skin, the game will automatically assign the custom nude. You can only change the casual skin in the game because it has a new body type identifier - PON - instead of Chd.

Programs like SimEnhancer3D and Sim Wardrobe do not recognise PON as a bodytype, so you can't change the casual skin in these programs. These external programs don't recognise the Universal Child (UC) meshes either, so you have to change these in the game.

Sim Wardrobe at least lets you view the skins even if you can't change them. SimEnhancer3D is risky to use and not recommended. Just clicking and trying to view the skins on the Normal, Winter or Sleep screens will change the skins for that sim. Once the casual skin is changed you cannot change it back in the game via the dresser because the dresser will not show up PON skins if the pony kid is wearing the standard "Chd" skin.

If you lose the casual skin you can get it back by loading the SWE file for the appropriate gender/skin tone in Sim Wardrobe.

When you first start out making pony kids for your game, the game most likely will not see all the buyables eg, you will see the winter buyables in the dresser or clothing rack but no swim or sleepwear. Instead you will see default pjs and the nude for the swim option.

Don't try to change into swim or sleep - it may cause your game to crash. Instead, exit your game and start Sim Wardrobe.

Open up the sim to be modifed and load in the SWE file for the relevant gender/skin tone. This will lock in the skins for your pony kid. After saving and exiting SimWardrobe you can then go back into your game and change outfits in the dresser and buy new buyables from the clothing racks.


Other ways to get the buyables to show up:

Making a few large test families of pony kids seems to force the game to recognise the swim and sleep buyables in dressers and clothing racks. It takes more than 1 test family for this to happen and works best if the families are large.

Even though the game will eventually recognise the buyables for a new pony kid, any previous test pony kids with incorrect buyables will stay that way. That's why making test families is recommended rather than your real pony kid characters.

Once all the buyables show up in the dressers (use a C&C at home dresser) you can make your real pony kid family and evict/delete the testing families.

If you're prepared to learn a little hacking you can edit inside the character's iff file which means manually entering in the cmx and bmp filenames of the skins you want to use for your pony kid. This is not hard to do but it does need the programs IffPencil2 (PC users) or IffSnooper (Mac user). If you want to know more about how to do this, check out the mini-tutorials in Hacker's Hideout.

A big thank you to Mtaman who helped me with these skins - they would not have been possible without his input. hug


Skinners Notes

Skinners are welcome to make new bmps for these meshes and distribute them. Please credit Simblesse Oblige and provide a link back to the forum so that players can get the original pony skins too.

Please contact Simblesse Oblige for permission if you want to modify the meshes.

Making new heads and manes/tails involves understanding how props are named. There is information here at Simblesse Oblige about working with props in the Skinner's section.

Heads & Nudes


Here are the Heads and Nudes plus the SWE files to use in SimWardrobe so you can load in the buyables or fix the casual skin if you change it accidentally back to a "chd" skin.

More casual skins for girls

These is the "nice" dress from the costume trunk. Some colour variations are the same for all skin tones, some will have a different bmp for the skin tone.

The white "fun tina" dress from Makin' Magic makes a pretty lacy dress for a pony girl.

More casual pony girl skins - shorts & dungarees this time. This mesh is universal but pony kids will only see the skins for their gender in the dresser.
