This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hello Everyone!!

After six months of work, I have finally finished the sword. This is my first hacked object, that I have ever made. In the .rar file, there is 3 files, 1 is the sword, 1 is the stand and the last one is a social object. You need all 3 objects in your game for everything to work properly.

UPDATE!!
17-1-2007 : After some people requesting it, I made it so the "Demonstrate Skills" interaction now adds body skillpoints. Your sim will gain them alot faster than usual, 1 and a bit skill points each time they do the interaction. See post in thread for a picture of it. POST

Mesh Details:

Sword Stand: 1856/1995 (f/v)
Sword: 1562/1302 (f/v)

Interactions
Sword Stand:
  • "Draw Sword" - Your sim will walk to the stand and pick the sword up. The texture on the stand will change to make it look like the sword has been taken out. (NOTE: It will stay in your sim's hand until you use the "Put Away" interaction on the stand, or the "Drop" interaction on the sword.)
  • "Put Away" - Your Sim will walk to the stand and put the sword away. The texture on the stand will change to make it look like the sword has been put back.
  • "View" - Just the same as the normal maxis "View" interaction.

Sword:
  • "Pick Up" - The sim will walk over to the sword and pick it up. If the sword isn't in the hand of the sim, this option will appear.
  • "Drop" - The sim will drop the sword on the ground. This option will only appear when the sword is in the hand.
  • "Demonstrate Skills" - Your sim will swing the sword around, aswell as do some kicks and punches. After the routine is finished, they bow.This option will only appear when the sword is in the hand. See the Update area, for an update on this interaction.
  • "Fight a Sim" - Both the Sim with the sword and the selected sim will fight. They will stab, punch, kick and slash each other. Once they have finished, your sims fun will go up by a quarter.This option will only appear when the sword is in the hand.
  • "Commit Suicide" - The Sim will perform a Custom animation (it may not actually go into the sim) where they will put the sword into them. They will throw up, then die.This option will only appear when the sword is in the hand.
  • "Kill a Sim" - The sims selected will do exactly the same as the "Fight a Sim" interaction, but the sim who was selected, will die. It has a custom animation, but is a little off from stabbing the sim.This option will only appear when the sword is in the hand.


Known Issues:
  • "Sword Placement in hand" - Sometimes, if something happens to the sim, the sword is moved out further from the hand. To fix this, you can either delete the sword from Buy mode, or put the sword back in the stand, then pull it out again.
  • "Strange Pose" - Sometimes, when your sim commit's suicide, the sim may be stuck in a pose next to the stand. To fix this, you can either let the sim die by the grim reaper, or save them from the reaper.
  • "Jump Bug" - You may experience a bug with the sword or stand, where the sim may teleport from one place to another then instantly back. Currently i dont know what is causing it, so i can't fix it.


Game Compatability:
These objects, require atleast 1 expansion pack for the sword to go in the hand. It does not matter which expansion you have.
They will also not replace any of your game files.
The stand can be found under Miscellanious/ Miscellanious.
The animations only work for adult.

Echo: The biggest thanks would have to go her, she has been helping me with alot for this sword, without her, it wouldn't even be half finished. She helped with with making the sword stay in the hand after the interaction was finished. She corrected some of the codes i did which were wrong. She helped me with the commit suicide interaction, by telling me how to set it up. She also taught me the importance of Guardian bhav's. She also helped me majorly with the Kill a Sim interaction.
Smonaff: For fixing the Kill a Sim interaction for me, I wouldn't have been able to fix it. Also thank you for telling me how to make the Fight a Sim function work with the Kill a Sim interaction.

If it helps, I only have the University expansion installed, but I can't say the same for oomisseoo.
I have tried it with several Sims on several Sims.

Other interactions work fine, though.

yeah, its that problem. JohnBrehaut1 can you reply this one, because i want realy play with the sword, but when i try to drag out it appears it has a error and i have always to reset (because cancel is useless and delete is to delete the sims) can you help me?

I love this sword. I ran into a very strange problem with it, though. I downloaded Echo's functional carnival set and put the sword as decoration in the carnival, which has a medieval theme. One of the fairgoers was carrying the sword around. However, when he went on the carnival rides, he would disappear from the carnival cart and reappear like a ghost beside the sword scabbard, reappearing and disappearing all around it. The empty carnival cart went through the whole ride as though the Sim was on it. Then, at the end of the ride, the Sim appeared beside the cart with the sword, as though he had just gotten off the ride.

Probably a clash of custom content, but it's sad, because I had the perfect place for this sword on a decorative patio right at the entrance of the carnival.

Thanks for this great content. I am sure I will find somewhere else to use it in my game, but I thought I would let you know about this conflict.

What a great object!

You should be able to kill sims. But you have to click on the sword once it is in your hand to do that (don't click on the stand).

I don't believe you can kill sims living in apartments (if you have Apartment Life). For some reason, the game makes it really hard to kill apartment dwellers. But for regular lots, slash away!

Hey, just thought you'd like to know that visitors can't be killed with this. However, they seem to be unable to be killed with any deadly weapons, and they quickly leave the lot after being attacked, so I think locking them in and then using the sword may work...

Thank you very much for the sword and all your work. But I have a problem with it.

I cannot even hold the sword!!! My sims are just able to "view" it but not to hold it, there is a problem. When I try the "draw" action, an error appears. I used the testingcheats to have a look at a problem, and I got this in the logs directory:
