This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hello all,

The second pack is finally here; this time of a variety of cockatoos. Cockatoos tend to be cuddly, destructive, and LOUD. I try to keep my recolors as accurate to the real species as possible, but due to the restraints of how the textures are set up, this isn't always possible. I also did a bit more of my own texturing this time, instead of just changing the hues around.

Species included in this pack are as follows:

Moluccan: A little less active than most, but still prone to moments of hyperactivity. Alternatively known as the 'Salmon Crested' due to their noticeable orange-pink crests.
Rose-Breasted Galah: A bit smaller than most 'toos, and more independent. These guys are common as pigeons in their native Australia. They're primarily pink and dark grey, with a short, dense crest.
Black Palm: The largest of the cockatoos. Known for their striking appearance, defined by sleek near-black plumage and bright red bare patch on the face.
Mitchell's: Generally regarded as the most beautiful cockatoo, these parrots are primarily pink and white with a bright red and yellow crest.


My Guidelines:

-Feel free to recolour my recolours... Just link back to this page.
-Do NOT upload my creations on the Exchange or pay sites.
-You may use my creations in pictures, stories, etc.
-Please give credit where credit is due.

Thank you!

Wow, they're all so pretty! I never realized my birds in-game were missing something until I saw these 'toos. The Black Palm is my favorite.

these are great,
but you're right they come as common as pigions in australia
how many of you have been chased around the backyard by
an angry cocky!

Ever seen the girls from bay watch, they run in slow motion.

These are lovely! I've owned a Sulphur Crested and Umbrella myself. Those Black Palms though - wow - upwards of $10,000 they're so rare. If I had the yard for a large aviary, and the money...

Guess my sims will have to do for now!

They're beautiful! And very realistic. If my Pets was working I would download these in a heartbeat. You've done an absolutely beautiful work on these adorable birds. Keep it up.

Thanks for these. My mother used to own a Muloccan, and "Cockatoos tend to be cuddly, destructive, and LOUD" is a very accurate description. These are lovely, and I can't wait to get them in-game.

Absolutely beautiful in game. Thank you!

I'm worried that my latest Salvation Army donation will result in homeless people looking like sluts from the 90s.

These are wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing!! I love 'too's! Its great to have so many verities, I've never heard of the Mitchell's, but I've been drooling over the Black Palm! I've seriously considered the rose breasted, but I'm sure my Pionus would protest! Oh well, no room at this house anyway.

Thank you again!!

Your birds are very realistic.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.
