UPDATE 4/1/11 It has come to my attention that the shoulder weights did not appear and that the turban doesn't stay on all the time; I have fixed these errors plus some others I haven't caught before, the new shoulderweights mesh and turban recolour and other fixes are in the new Diekatze Meshes 2 .rar file I have uploaded. If it is not there yet, just wait till the cache refreshes. I have tested these and they should work now. If there are anymore errors that pop up, please let me know by PM. For the future downloaders, I recommend installing the Piccolo sim first and then put the content of Diekatze's Meshes 2 in the downloads folder in order for some of the fixes to work. Thank you
UPDATE 4/10/11 Not reeeeeally a necessary update but I just wanted to let those who are reading this thread know is that now I have a FAR better skin available for your Piccolo and it can be found HERE
Finally! Piccolo the badass green alien can now be apart of your neighborhood today! Hooray!
In case you didn't know Piccolo is from the Dragonball Z and he is a Namekian (species). He is the son of King Piccolo from Dragonball, so technically he is "Piccolo Jr", but still refers to himself as just Piccolo. As should be.
I personally thought I never would get this far with Piccolo, every mesh seemed to have a major problem, the textures would be awful and had to redo them, files would be corrupted or the game would crash, but I somehow made it through amidst the chaos.
Now, there's allotta things I need to mention in this thread, I hope I don't forget anything...
Custom Meshes by Me
Used Milkshape to make all my custom meshes and they all are recolourable (and I am quite sure they are all base game)
Piccolo Tunic Mesh
I have included Piccolo Tunic (although I just realized it's called a gi but I'm not going back to change the name on everything) mesh for both Adult Male and Elder Male. They can be worn for any occasion except as Underwear. I used the arms and chest of [Marvine, Beoboxboy] SynapticSim's Lean Body Builder V2. I also tried shaping the legs similar to the contours of the Lean Body Builder as well. I know the pants aren't as "baggy" as they should be, but if I were to make them too wide they would clip into everything. They slightly clip as, but only when the legs cross each other like resting on the bed or they would clip a little into the couch. But no major clips or issues that would seriously hinder gameplay. There is no preg morph or becomes fat while wearing this outfit.
I think this is my favorite mesh that I have made from scratch by far. He is wearing the turban mesh by default. This turban is an accessory mesh, not hair, so short cropped hair can be worn underneath if desired. It can be worn everywhere, anytime, even swimming and sleeping. That way he won't take it off and Oh no! He has no antennas! It can be worn with other accessories. Can only be worn by YAM, AM, and EM.
Namek Antennas Mesh
Included with the upload, You can have Piccolo alternately wear antennas if you don't want him wearing the turban all the time. Use the mirror to change accessories, you can make him wear both if you want but he would look rather silly. The antennas can be worn at all times, even swimming and sleeping. They can be worn with other accessories. This mesh can be worn by both male and female adults and elders (young adults implied). I do have teen, children, and toddler versions available but I shall upload them in another thread later.
These shoulderweights (or shoulderpads, whatever ya want to call 'em) are to be worn with the scarf and cape. Without the scarf they are hovering above his shoulders, so they are only really meant to be worn along with the scarf and cape combo. You can't wear them swimming or sleep with them on - would you really want to sleep with these on do you? So he will take them off when he goes diving into the pool and whatnot. They can be worn with other accessories. They are attached to the movement of his clavicles (or collarbones) so if his shoulders aren't moving but his arms are, the arms may sometimes clip into the shoulderpads or anytime the arms perform radical motion. But otherwise no major glitches that hinder gameplay. They are available only for YAM, AM, and EM.
Originially I was going to use generalzoi's bunched cuffs, but they had an odd glitch which I couldn't fix so basically being inspired by her bunched cuffs I managed to make these. Like the shoulderweights they do come off while swimming or sleeping, but they can be worn with other accessories. They are only available for YAM, AM, and EM.
I used Milkshape to edit his face so that he can have those ridges over his eyes and pointy-ish nose (and remove those darn maxis eyelashes!). The ears originally came from GnatGoSplat's Zelda sim and was converted for male sims by pentabet, so now his ears will always match the skin color. Ah yes, and the best part is that his face and ears are genetic! Yes, that means his offspring can inherit his erm, handsome features. On a side note his skin and eyes are geneticized as well. I remade each Face Template for both genders and all ages so that this can work. They are default replacements for the CAS Face ArchCpol, which I do not think you will be missing. Oh, and I should probably put GnatGoSplat's advise here, in order to see the face and ears correctly, the Sims graphic setting under "Object Quality" should be set to "High"
In this slightly fanservice-y pic I just want to be able to show other details you wouldn't be able to see in other pics. The skin is modified version of Ren/Louis' self-make up skin, all I did was added the details and modified the eye area. I tried my best to be accurate about the skin, unfortunately the "pillowy" muscle things were not going to work as they didn't look so great when lacking the 3d aspect, so I compromised with pinkish muscle-like texture. The extra details can only be seen on Teen though Elder males, children and females are only green. The body shape used in the pic is [Mavine&Beoboxboy] SynapticSim's LBBv2, also when Piccolo is in the shower his body will turn into this bodyshape.
I adjusted the alpha of generalzoi's Vampire Fangs to make them shorter. RAWR! Also adjusted the alpha of shadylady482's long nails to make them pointy.
