This is the NPC for Billy Bones Boutique by Grim Sims. It's one of those skins that SkinShrinker doesn't really understand - and one of the first skins that I managed to 'fix' for the Mac all by myself. :)
(Not sure how appropriate the word 'skin' is for a skeleton?)

Just for fun, I put him on one of Woobsha's EZ-clone register bases (the 'disgruntled cashier' to be exact), so now he has some extra animations, such as pretending to hang himself...

With a *HUGE* thank-you to Dominia for making all these wonderful objects free to clone and re-distribute; and to SSoW for the EZ-clone bases that make shopkeepers more human - even if they're skeletons. laugh

I made him for Mac users, since the original works fine on a PC, but the skin should work on a regular PC, too.

Karin

There's something darkly humourous (on multiple levels) about a skeleton trying to hang himself...

Nice work, Karin.

LOL! The only time of year I actually play the game is when I built my Halloween lots. I just love the special animations like skeletons trying to hang themselves. Thanks for the cool cashier.

I was going through all my files and doing a cleanup/editing in TMOG -
and I just wanna say that I am **quite surprised** -
No, more like very pist off, that you didn't give ANY mention of Grim Sims in your description for this whatsoever.

Nor any credit,
or even a small thanks
for doing ALL of the original graphics and register animations. dry

Why would you do that to someone who has been so generous with you?

Wow. censored That's a fine way to show thanks for letting you all clone my sh!t. censored

From this minute forth - that is DONE. OVER. PERIOD. censored
NO MORE CLONING. explode

This had to be an honest oversight, which karinl will want to apologize for.

She's one of the good guys, always patient and helpful. But I'm not sure if she has even made enough objects to have changing the descriptions in TMog as part of her routine.

I know that it's the kind of error I could easily have made. I'm basically a skinner, and TMog makes my ears bleed.
