Oooohh!

More leads! Thanks!

@Doren: I am now curious as to why they were such large files. In theory they shouldn't need to be high poly-count at all....but then, it seems there are a lot of CC creators who seem to equate the number of polygons with the quality of the end product. (Hair-Mesh creators seem to be the worst!)

Probably quite an old creation.  In the early days, people weren't aware that high-poly items could cause lag.

Very true!

***added***

Doren: I wonder if the links arathea just posted are the same ones you mentioned? They are listed as being "very high" poly-count. (They were also listed as having been uploaded by the MIA beosboxboy, which is kind of sad.)

I wonder if I could lower the poly-count myself in Milkshape? (I've been looking for a nice *tutorial* project!)

If you are interested, have a look at the wonderful TS2 wedding achieved by Simmerqueen here: http://www.the-isz.com/theisz/index.php?/topic/5438-happily-ever-after/

I seem to remember it was your church building used in this ZZ.

It was indeed... :blush:  However, all my houses have disappeared.... so I can't give you a link to them at CT.  It's not at 4-Shared, although I could easily upload it there if anyone wants it.

Thanks Isz - I just didn't get anything at all there when I looked!  I thought they must have got lost in an upgrade or something....  I suppose it must just have been they haven't been accessed in a while.

@Figwit: Thank you for the link to SQ's (amazing) pics! The wedding shots were terrific!

@ZZ: That church is absolutely gorgeous! Actually I love all the buildings I have seen of yours...I don't know how I managed to miss that one!

@ISZ: Thanks for the link to ZZ's church! < snags >

I just recently switched the Sims 2 and Sims 3 sections around so that the Sims 3 sections are listed first.  :smile:

Glad you like it, ZW.

I have a chapel up at 4-shared, too.. it's a comm lot, not residential, though.

If that link doesn't work for you, then just hunt through the maze here:

I wondered about that too, because I remember getting them from a German site. Mine were female models however, with about 20 MB each.

I found them on my old downloads CD. They are made by Besen (besen_schaufensterpuppe). They do come from a German site but which one and does it still exist?

Besen's site is still up but I can't find a dummy there.

I think her(?) original dummys were without heads because I found a post in another German forum where someone added a head but I don't know where this one is available for download.

Try Around the Sims Downtown Wedding Shop - without heads, but very nice dummies.

The following set has some nice items for a church, including a lectern.

There are also the wonderful sim-statues by kativip here and in some of her other uploads. I have one of her monks walking along the path in my community churchyard, and he looks great.

I dug up a dead thread sorry....

I was looking through the links but most of them are dead considering that some of the sites have change/closed/moved.  I have been looking for a week and nothing has come up.  I posted a link at GOS and I am looking at other sites but I was wondering if I could get some help.  Thanks.

Yes,  you can:
On the Sims Graveyard: there is a set of XPTL's downloads. Now, I don't remember which set has the fake sims in it, but I know they're included in one of them, if not more. That includes the wedding statues, and others, like the shopping statues.

Link: http://sims2graveyard.com/download.html

All of his mods were saved from extinction, and they're all there.

Thanks so much.  I want to crowd up a lot but not with real sims.  Too bad I only know about downloading and playing and nothing about creation.  I have sooooo many ideas but can't execute them in the least.  Anyways, thanks and the hunt continues.

How about these?  The top one is for the complete section, the second and third are a mannequin and a set of clothing choices.

You guys are awesome.  Here is a picture of what I found but don't know where they are.  The picture is by Kativip who stated in her post she didn't know where she got them from, lol.  I guess I might be forced to try and created something.  I know that will take millions of light years.  lol@myself.


I hope this is correct and the picture isn't too big.  Let me go read about posting pictures.  See that's a reason I don't post. runs off to read posting rules again.

I have that one as well.  She would be good for a whodunit story line.  Everyone would probably say they did it and it would be the toddler, something crazy.

Indeed! And if you're referring to any links in the top post, maybe you should retry. Because both MTS and Insim still exist, and both host their stuff on their own servers. So if the posts there are truly inaccessible - which I doubt - then the download links would probably also not work.

While Insim still exists, if a creator leaves the sight and ask their work be removed, they will do so.  XPTL appears to have left the TS2 community. Check in the Sims2Graveyard.

Yeah, if a creator asks for stuff to be removed... I still don't understand why anyone would want to have their stuff taken away from the community.
Thanks for correcting me, AH :bow:

I think there are when someone is really ticked off about something they might want their stuff taken down, but they could always upload it elsewhere.  We've lost so much good stuff as it is without more people adding to the loss.

I think sometimes, too, there are those people who think, well, I no longer play Sims 2, so therefore nobody who matters plays Sims 2 any more, so why would they want my stuff?
