I wanted to make a horse inspired from the direhorse in the movie Avatar after watching it again the other day... Because you know gorgeous those creatures look like, it makes me wish I actually owned one in real life. xD

Anyways I spent several days trying to figure out what colors matched it best (at first it was too pale, and then I made it too purple) but I think this shade of blue fits it well. It has big, stalky legs just like the creature its' based on and also a skinny waist, braided hair (tail) and vibrant blue pattern all over its' body similar to that of the Na'vi tribes people from this movie.

This particular horses' traits are Genius, Brave, and Fast.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the sim to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sim file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game, enter Create-a-Sim, and save a sim to the sim bin to create this folder, rather than doing so manually. After that you can close the game and put the .sim file in SavedSims
4. Once the .sim file is in SavedSims, you can load the game, and look for your sim in the premade sims bin in Create-a-Sim.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Do you stick it in your downloads folder? Because I don't have a saved sims folder :/

You don't have a saved sims folder yet. It should work if you just create a folder under Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/ called 'SavedSims'. This is the folder where any .sim you get off The Exchange or from a CC site (like MTS) should go. In game, the sims you place there will show up in CAS in the Saved/Pre-Made Sims bin.
I had to manually recreate my folder recently the same way, but it works fine.

And to Annyon, I just want to say that I really love this a whole lot. I am wishing very hard for some way to replace the Wild Horse spawning files so I can have wild direhorses in a world.

Treeag's Sim Transformer can turn it into a unicorn, without the horn, it will have the unicorn glow and the unicorn idles. (In theory - It did when I had it turn a regular horse into a unicorn) - Worth a try, at any rate!

I love this horse and it looks great. I downloaded it into my mods/packages folder and extracted it with WinRAR. But when I log onto the game, i don't see it anywhere. Could someone please tell me how to download it because I have never downloaded and custom pet and I really like this horse. Also if it worked would it be in the sim bin? Thank you for making this horse though!

This is so much more beautiful than the "horses" in Avatar which are ugly and weird looking. Just got Sims 3 and Pets a few days ago. Can't wait to try this out!
