Title: Merman - buff version, teen through elder
Post by: marvine on December 01, 2005, 06:29:26 pm
UPDATE 30-12-2006: enabled for teen through elder.

So, here's the adult male, with 4 textures mostly made by Beosboxboy; the rar file includes the mesh and the recolours.

The mesh is included in the RAR. The mesh may not be redistributed without permission. Please link back to this thread for the mesh and give credit. Recolours may be posted on any site; however because of the nature of Maxis exchange you may not use this mesh for any Sim you upload to Maxis Sims 2 Exchange.

Pictures featuring Adian the, erm, punk biker by Kavar, and I also used Kavar's bunny ears mesh. Because I could. Oh, and the skintones are Beosboxboy's, and the tattoos also by Kavar.

Download a video clip of the animations: http://rapidshare.de/files/8490925/mermen_dancing.rar (http://rapidshare.de/files/8490925/mermen_dancing.rar)

Note: the video is slowed down a little to give a clearer view of the animations.

These are really wonderful.  I tried out three of the types, very nice.  They move really well and I like watching them.  Will there be a way to keep their merman appearance in the shower?  I used them with one of the body builder linked meshes and they turned to regular naked bodybuilders when bathing.  I can't wait for the other ages and genders to be ready, they are just too cool!

Thank you for the comments, it means a lot to me that you appreciate different stuff!

Mmahair, I still have to make specific skintones to link a nude mesh - or beg Beosboxboy to help me with that :) -, the regular ones are a little disturbing with that bodyshape - and I really need to forget how it looks with the hairiest skintones... :puke:

I will try that - but just for fun and personal education, so don't expect anything... I don't see how to use the existing animations on 4 legs without getting the weirdest results, and distributing a half-animated or poorly animated mesh is out of question. :)

Maybe cross-link the animation of left foreleg with right hindleg and vice versa?

By the way, any chance to see some mermaids with those animations of yours? Great work on the mermen. ^^v

Your absolutely right.  I've seen some attempted and to be honest they didn't come out that well.  Kind of like the back ends were dead and just hauled around.  I'd imagine that eventually they will be realeasing something with pets for Sims 2.  Possibly then the animations would be more accomadating for something like centaurs.

Nonetheless your mermen are amazing.  And if anyone could make a fully functioning centaur, it would be you:)

Eh... It's a misunderstanding... I merely wanted to know if we could expect, that you create some female merfolks that use your animation technique. It's true that there are some pretty nice mermaids out there, but they look rather odd while walking around.

They are coming - just no schedule for realease is promised.

Neither marvine nor myself can devote as much time to the game as we would like.  All I can promise is that when they are released they will be to the same exacting standards that marvine gave the adult males and toddlers.

I understand how it would be hard to make a centaur but do you think you could make a Satyr (some people call them Fauns or Pans (Pans may be incorrect))

These mermen are so fabulous. I have a few in my neighborhood now. (Including a Derick Zoolander Mer *sniff sniff* Mer MAN!) :) but I am also (as the others said) looking for other body styles other than the big body builders. I'd like one in the base body type and perhaps the athletic forms, etc.

I always felt Mermen would be a bit more swimmer-build rather than Arnold Swarzenegger build for the underwater agility (as it's water, therefore a large, huge bulky body wouldn't be nescessary)

That is the problem in creating anything that is fantasy.  It's all make believe, and everyone's mental image will vary.  In my mind, they aren't buff enough.  Anyone's image will hardly ever match anyone else's when taken to details.

That's just the flat fact.  LOL - One doesn't tell da Vinci how to paint. :lol:

FurryJackal, Kipsy,

I'm all for variety in the game, so I'll also make a regular version, and maybe an athlete one - I'll work on that as soon as the teens are made.

Okay questions about this mesh.

First Do they retain the tail while bathing?

Second is there some specific genetics/skintones attached to the mesh in order for it to display properly at all times? I was making a mermaid in bodyshop and while working on her I changed her from adult to young adult and then to elder to see what she would look like at each age stage. When I did this she lost her tail and was wearing just regular clothes instead. Shouldn't they maintain the tail through age progressions? If they should what could be causing mine to revert? I have all the available mer people files that are up so far so I know I am not lacking any. I checked the merman file for a readme and didn't see one just in case there was something in there that I should have been doing special for these to work properly.

I love these by the way and just want to make sure that they are functioning in my game as they are meant to. They are incredibly beautiful and I can't wait for the rest to complete the set.


Title: Merman - buff version, teen through elder
Post by: marvine on January 24, 2006, 04:22:02 am
Wiccadwitch, I still have to enable the mermaid for YA and elders, updated files should be uploaded soon - I'm a little focused on another mesh right now.

There aren't any mesh-linked skintones yet, Beosboxboy will take care of that as soon as I have made all the age groups - not sure yet if I make a new mesh for elders or if I'll be satisfied with enabling the adult ones for them, and I still have to make the teens. The baby mesh is ready also, but for now I don't see how to get it to display else than when it's naked, and with a mesh-linked skintone. The only other solution I found means overwriting all the babies in game, and this doesn't satisfy me.

I was wondering if this project was still being worked on because I havent seen an update in a while? I rememer reading that a baby and a skintone were going to be made but I havent heard anything. I do realize that it probably isnt easy to make a baby mermaid that works in the game while still keeping the original baby. Thanks for this awsome stuff :D all of it.

Title: Downloading Mermaids
Post by: Meri on June 15, 2006, 09:41:18 am
I downloaded the Meshes and colors for the mermaids, mermen, merchildren, merteens, and mertoddlers but I still can't get the tails on them to show up for my game.  This is my second time redownloading them.  It just shows repeated clothing that I already have.  For some reason it won't show the tails.  I followed the directions and saved the files to my desktop then extracted them to my downloads area for my game.  I would really like to have merfamilies like all these other people do.  If anyone could please help me I would really appreciate it.  Thank you.

Meri, if only one of the meshes didn't show up this could be because of a conflict with another file; but if all of them are missing, then obviously something is wrong on your side... You can do a search in your saved sims and downloads folder to make sure that there aren't duplicates in different locations, or even delete all of them and reinstall in case they got corrupted.

Nicolaturner, the dowloaded files should be extracted with WinRAR or any program able to uncompress RAR files, then installed in you My documents/EA Games/The Sims 2/ Downloads folder.

Post by: BlondeBoy on June 24, 2006, 01:21:37 pm
All the mer-folk meshes are great, but it would be kinda cool if Marvine and Beosboxboy could make other mer-folk, but with something other than the dolphin type body, and have the lower half of the body be something like a seahorse or like the little mermaid witch (ursula) with an octopuss body or like an eel. im not saying they have to make it, just that it would be cool to have in my fantasy world.:forwardr:

Post by: kasilogan on September 04, 2006, 10:17:44 pm
hi there...since I cannot post my topless mermaids while the adult section is down would it be alright if i recolour some mermen...it seems that noone else has done so and i dont wanna be sexist...lol.  Tell me what you think?


Title: I download them like this...
Post by: kasilogan on September 05, 2006, 10:58:34 am
I save the file to my desktop...then i use 7zip to extract the files...from the zip or rar file.  (free PC: http://www.7-zip.org/)   After that go to my documents/EA games/Sims2/Downloads...and just put them into the downloads folder...they should show up in ur outfits in bodyshop or create family.


Title: u just click the file u wanna download...
Post by: kasilogan on September 05, 2006, 06:22:21 pm
u will see the thumbnail...the pic of the item u want to download...under it u will see the rar or zip file...click it choose save...choose desktop or downloads whichever place u want to store them until ur ready to install them...dang u r new to this huh...lol...really it depends on which site u r downloading from but they pretty much tell u what to do, you just have to read.:grin:

Sorry beosboxboy, I was trying to help out.  So is it cool about the mermen then?  Seems there aren't many recolours for the men.  There is only one issue I have seen with them guys and thats the pectorals seem to eat up the longer hair styles so that it looks like they have long strands of hair coming from their nipples...lol.  Have you seen this yet?


Title: Merman - buff version, teen through elder
Post by: marvine on September 07, 2006, 03:23:25 pm
Kasilogan, of course you are welcome to recolour this mesh! :)

And well, the issue with long hair can't really be avoided, unless I or Beosboxboy make new hair meshes for that bodyshape... So, not soon i guess :lol:


Title: Ready to post those mermen!
Post by: kasilogan on September 12, 2006, 04:56:50 pm
hi there!  I am now ready to post the recolours for the mermen but quite honestly i do not know how to turn them into rars nor where to put them after i do.  I looked in the help section but did not see the solution.  Please help me.  I did get them into zipfiles but i want to do this the right way...your way.  any help or Just tell me where to go to find out if you will.  Once more and not for the last time...thank you.

Title: Trying to create a new merman...
Post by: kasilogan on September 17, 2006, 10:54:20 pm
Hey there.  I am trying to create a new merman and was wondering if ever...was there a way to get jackets and things onto the merfolk?  any input on this would be nice.  


Also, I am trying to create a special one for a friend of mine...I hv 2 questions....is there anyway to remove the dorsal fin...if it is okay of course...and where could i find navy tats and gear for the guy?  In case you can't guess, I am going for a Navy Seal...merman...lol.  If he comes out the way i'm thinking I will want to post him to share so I want him to look good.

Hi! I love these meshes, they're tons of fun, but I have to ask: are there plans to make some merman mesh that's not super built sometime? I just like the ordinary, scrawny men best myself. If not, thanks anyway!


Title: Merman - buff version, teen through elder
Post by: marvine on December 16, 2006, 04:35:04 am
marshmallowygoo,
"where is the mesh" might the right question to ask yourself - did you download, extract and put in your downloads both the mesh and the recolours?

nekkidora,
the regular merman has been available here (http://www.insimenator.org/showthread.php?t=5467) for quite a while :)

Post by: Scarlo-hara on December 29, 2006, 11:02:49 am
I can't wait to see some recolours!
In other words...
Perfect! except for two things...

1. I can't get them to work with elders (both genders.)
2. The Tail is too small for the body (vice-versa), If you want A muscular merman, I think the body should be balanced out with a muscular tail.
I guess merpeople are only in their first stages of devolopement though?


Title: Merman - buff version, teen through elder
Post by: marvine on December 30, 2006, 06:44:53 pm
Scarlo-hara,

Thank god I'm not obsessed by the downloads counter because I just reset it to 0 for you :lol: - files updated to work also with elders.
Now, the elder female is a separate mesh and has its own thread on this section.

Oh and about the tail - that was a deliberate choice; a big tail seems more girly to me... :)
And as soon as I have uploaded linked skintones and the baby mesh this project will be over for me.

I will always believe your Merman :D
Is the most extraordinarily and astonishing mesh ever made!
How you did this is inconceivable to me.

Marvine you have created a true `Masterpiece,
The beauty of just a photo of them is so moving.

I believe the making of the Merman is a combination
of a wonderful imagination with the skillfulness for meshing.

Your artistry definitely shows an exquisite loveliest
