Picked upload! Head Shape Slider

Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
One of the biggest issues in Sim creation is that Sims tend to have a rather high nose, a large forehead and a high head in general.

So I made, inspired by some requests, and looking at some Sims in the "Creator Feedback" forum, this CAS slider, which should fix many of the problems and is very easy to use.

This slider can move the upper part of the head (forehead, eyes, hair and ears) up and down, adjusting the nose length accordingly. This slider is very clean, there is no deformation and no clipping. I use it on all of my Sims, and I think it's one of the most useful sliders there.

The slider works on all ages (except baby of course), the effect is scaled proportionally on toddlers and children.

General info:

As with all facial sliders, this slider is genetically inheritable. Install it as every other slider. If you need further info, how to install sliders and how to override the slider limit if needed, look at my 10 CAS Slider download

Known issues:
Some hair and hats has wrong bone assignments, so the hair will not stick to the head. The vertices should be assigned to "HeadNew" (or "HeadDome") instead of "Head", but they aren't. Affected is the basegame female bob hair and Oepu's short version of it. A package to fix the adult female EA hair is attached, others may follow, although I'm really bad at using Milkshape so you shouldn't expect too much.

Compatibility:
The slider works with all currently known game versions and should work with all future versions, unless EA does big changes to the slider system.

Additional Credits:
I want to thank Delphy for his Small Editors and everyone else, wo did research and wrote tools, that helped me creating this (s3pi, s3pe, MilkShape exporters/importers, Blender, Wolfram Alpha, Gimp, and many more).

The Sim is some random Sim generated in CAS and the CAS background (barely visible on the screenshot) is "warm tones at dusk" by joninmobile

This is a really nice slider.
But since I've been returning to play with the older jobs... I've been seeing this strange issues when the game assign a new outfit for my sims u.u





Since I like those sliders (i'm taking down this hats everytime they get promoted with awesome mod by "editsim")

But its been a pain to do this everytime..

That's probably similar to the hair mesh problem described on the overview page. You would need to fix the hat mesh. i have a pretty neat idea how to easily fix all meshes, but i have not much time a the moment. So there is currently no fix for that.

Thank you!!!! It's cool because...

  • ...I can make Mr. Spock's long face.

Thanks for this mod! It really opens up the possibilities for more unique-looking sims.

One question I have, though: is it possible to change more than just the width of the chin? Maybe a slider for chin depth, or angle (as viewed from the side), or chin length instead of just raising and lowering the whole jaw? The problem is that lowering the mouth often creates an unnatural-looking crease or overlap between the lower lip and the chin, and the sims generally have big chins, so there isn't a lot of room to move the lips downward.

Anyway, didn't mean this as a complaint, only an observation/suggestion. Wonderful mod, thank you!

It might just be me though, my game has a ton of glitches anyway.

You only need Jonha_Sliders_HeadShape.zip but you can optionally install the other one to fix a broken hair mesh.

As with my other sliders: should work but you might get minor deformations.

I have reloaded my game 3 times now and this slider still will not show up in Head > General or anywhere else in CAS for that matter. I have Pets installed and an up to date version of Master Controller so I know it's not a slider limitation issue. I have your BASE and Head Size package files installed and those work just fine... as well as all the other sliders I've found around the internet. I've checked my package files with Dashboard and there's no conflicts in any files.

This is the only slider that won't show in my game. Help. :/

Nevermind, now it shows up after the 4th attempt. What I changed is that I had the hairfix one in that would not show so I removed it and downloaded the original version which and it shows in my game. This is awesome, thanks for your work.

The hairfix one needs to be installed in addition to the slider. Installing only the hairfix one will have no effect.
