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.

since you said it wouldn't be to hard (and becuase I don't know the first thing about modding) if you had the time could you switch the sword with the larger cooking knife? no need to change the base or anything, just the blade. I have Johnny The homicidal Maniac in my game and it would be awsome for him to have his knife.

Water_Rules: mts2 is having some server issues, so that is probably causing it. Wait a little while and download it again.

I'm not entirely sure that being 13 makes it impossible to learn how to mesh. But then making new meshes oneself isn't a prerequisite for giving constructive critique.

I _am_ sure that the following isn't beyond a 13 year old:

Anybody who uploads work for free here is making a gift to Sim2 users. Anyone who uploads a work that took 6 months of work is making a huge gift.

If you get a gift, you reply politely. If you don't like it it's okay to say so, and nobody forces you to accept the gift. "hey that's crappy" is not a polite reply and not exactly constructive critique either.

Have fun gaming & recoloring.

Well whatever your age, you did a terrific job, being twice your age I gotta admit I could never do that. Forget about the age or skills issue, this is a superbe mesh and I'm sure lots of people will be enjoying it ( with 254 thanks already, yea pretty sure there's a lot already enjoying it ).

Thanks for your work and time.

For the ''hand holding it'' problem, I thought of something. I know absolutely nothing about meshing and all, I gotta admit I'm totally clueless about this. But just tell me if my idea is possible to do.
-Ok you said you must attach the handle to the wrist, so the sword doesn't disapear every now and then.
How about making an extension to the handle, a wire, a rod, that would be attached to the wrist so the handle of the sword looks like it's in the hand at all time. Of course that extension, whatevet it is, would be of ''ivisible color'' so the user doesn't actually see it, only the sword in the palm of the caracter's hand.

Just an idea, I might be totally off since I know nothing about how it's possible or not. Anyway I'm already thankfull of what you've done with this, great job.

Mako.I.Test, I did think of moving the position of the sword lower so it would be in the hand more, but the hand with many things would clip into the sword and instead of following the movement of the hand, it would follow the movement of the wrist, so it would be all over the place.

might seem like a stupid question.... but what do the ghosts of the killed/ suicide sims look like? u kno how when the come out of their graves, they wander around and depending on the way they died they are a certain colour and do certain things.... do you know what colour and things these ghosts do! and btw this is fantastic! loving the sword and it's brill! A* for the object.

absolutelyfabulous7, I am pretty certain that they will be the colour of when a sim dies from hunger.

Yes, the death type is hunger.
