This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

Ever wanted that outfit that just lights up a room? Now you can have it, and save the world at the same time! I know what you have to be asking yourself, "Let me guess the helmet is free and the rest I have to send checks out to get, right?". Well you would be wrong! You get everything seen below for the one time, non-recurring, no intrest accrewing $0.00! Thats right! Free!

This is a Full Bodysuit including a Helmet with a glass visor, a cape, a bodysuit, and a pair of boots. The Helmet is from Ambitions, but I am not sure you need this as I made a new mesh from it that is glowing, and not recolorable. As for recolorable options, this is not possible with glowing clothing.

The Cape can be found for men in CAS under Accessories in the Glasses Section, and looks like a standard face with no glasses or anything, see example:

For women the cape will look like an arm with no bracelet, and a tiny part of the non glowing cape behind it (if you look closely), see example:

All items are available for Adults, and Young adults, the cape is available for teens and elders too, and the helmet is availble for teens as well. The parts are available as sleepwear, formal wear, normal wear, athletic wear, and swimwear, basically all categories as saving the world is a full time job!

Bugs: Glowing Clothing items cannot use Morphs, which means no matter how fat your sim is, they will look normal in this suit. For Example this screenshot shows the same sim in and out of the ensemble:

There is also a bit of neck skin that comes through the helmet on portlier characters, for example:



The Glowing also does not support underwater so the outfit is invisible when underwater, and you will get floating head syndrome whilst underwater, Example:

Polygon Counts:
Cape: 3752 Polygons 1878 Vertices
Body: 3562 Polygons 2134 verticies
Boots: 764 Polygons 638 Verticies
Helmet: 1220 Polygons 970 Verticies

Cape: 3752 Polygons 2498 Verticies
Body: 3762 Polygons 2266 Verticies
Boots: 764 Polygons 644 Verticies
Helmet: 1220 Polygons 970 Verticies

Additional Credits:
Thanks to SydneyB at Fallout Nexus for the Ashuras Batman Suit and Catwoman Suit from which the cape is derived, and from whom permision has been received.
Great MOD Sydney B!!!

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 file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

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.

Look for a recolorable cape SOON! I am working on a version of this for the ladies as well, look for that soon as well.

Chimodo: Making a certain part of the body glow is not very practicle, as the glowing option does not support morphs, this is why this suit covers 100% of the body. Because of this, I cannot make a good set of Bikini bottoms that glow while the rest of the sim (including legs) does not.

i love your work!

can you make robin from teen titans cartoon series

and the rest of the five original teen titans
like in order from robin starfire raven beastboy and (maybe cyborg last)

Time to scratch out "read instruction manual for information about photosensitive seizures...." and write "Please use sunglasses when playing this game."

Aww, I was so looking forward to creating my cheerful glowy superhero. Too bad I don't have the Ambitions expansion pack. I guess I'll just admire the pictures you have up. :D

Some say he is illegal in 17 US states, and he blinks this way [sideways]. All we know is he’s called the Stig.

Awesome, I'm definitely downloading, just so I can have a sim in my town called 'The Stig' :D
