11th Sep 2011, 12:44 PM
hey. i have some important sims living in my neighborhood, like rock stars and revolutionary politicians :) i want to create sculptures of them posing, and put it as an object to parks, shopping centers, houses etc.
if it's possible; their bodies, faces and clothes must be as same as their own. like a real sim becoming an object.
i searched all around the internet for a guide about how to make a sim's sculpture but ended up with nothing. i hope someone can help me about that in this forum.

This was an idea I played around with for a really long time, a few years back. A came up with a possible solution, but I never got around to trying it to see if it worked...
You'd need to clone an empty NPC, like the hula zombie, give it a unique GUID, and set up a Function - Main wich played a pose animation and nothing else. Then, when you wanted to create the statue, you'd need to spawn the NPC, and replicate the appearance of the sim onto it. (There was a very old mod that allowed you to copy one sim's appearance over the top of another - The "Copy Mirror"... You could try and find that, or alternatively, take a look at http://nene.modthesims.info/d/284572 ).
The real problem comes when you exit the lot. The NPC would get deleted, and if you respawned it it would revert to its original appearance, rather than the famous sim. That would require a fair amount more research.

XPTL297 has a number of "props" which look like real sims, but are actually statues or trees. You might want to take a look and see what he did:

Thanks to you both! I've looked at XPTL297 props as you said and i'm extremely amazed. This is what i want to do :D I've sent a message to XPTL297 hoping he can help me how to do these props.

The nice thing about XPTL297's technique is that you don't fill up your neighborhood with useless sims.
