Layerable Piercing Set

by Winry Posted 30th Sep 2010 at 5:41 PM - Updated 20th Nov 2010 at 9:51 PM by Winry : 8 new piercings added!
169 Comments / replies (Who?) - 7 Feedback Posts, 16 Thanks Posts
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.
This is a set of layerable piercings available for both males and females and from teen to elder. They are assigned to all clothes categories and also to random and maternity for both genders. They are all recolorable.

They are bone assigned so they will move with your sim's eyebrows, nose or mouth.
However, the nose dots and the lip rings can be hidden if the nose is too voluminous (I'm not talking about width, length or size, these work perfectly) or if the lower lip is too thick.

Also, I didn't make piercings especially for teens and elders, they use the adult piercings so some of them might look a bit off depending on the sim features (look at the table with all the piercings shown, you'll see small differences between the ages)

You can layer up to three piercings at a time on the same sim.


Installation
- Download
- Unzip
- Do NOT copy-paste directly into your packages folder, you'll get unnecessary triples!
When you unzip the file, you will get two folders : male and female. They each have three subfolders : "As left earring", "As right earring" and "As bracelet".
You will find all eleven piercings in all of these subfolders. Pick the ones you want to be layerable from DIFFERENT subfolders.Two piercings that the game recognizes as a left earring for instance won't show up at the same time on your sim.
Your sim also won't be able to wear earrings and a piercing based on said earring.



If you can, it's better to pick your piercings in the left and right earrings folders because in CAS, the camera zooms on the accessory each time you pick it and of course, there's nothing to see on the sim's hand.

If you want a specific set of piercings, for exemple the two lip rings, a nose dot and an eyebrow ring (yes that's four piercings) to take only the place of one accessory, or even to show up with the original accessory (say, piercing set + watch) ask in a comment and I'll see what I can do for you ;D


***UPDATE - 18 nov 2010***
I have added 6 new piercings:
- middle lipring for males and females
- snake bite for males and females
- monroes, left and right, but only for females.
If someone wants monroes for males, just ask.

As for the other piercings, they were not specifically made for teens and elders so the placement can be a bit off. It's mostly noticeable for the teen monroes, there's a lot of cliping.

The new piercings are in the second archive, I did not update the original archive. The folder structure is exactly the same.


***UPDATE - 20 nov 2010***

I got a request for a custom set that included a studed snake bite and a middle lip stud so I created them for the set and here they are for everyone else in all flavors (left earring, right earring and bracelet)

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.

I really love your piercings.
I'm using them on my self sim, but I got a few more piercings myself XD
So I'd like to request a custom set for males (categorised as bracelet): your snakebites with rings und the septum, antibites/madonna-marilyn-combination, two more piercings in the lower lip.
Well, I got a picture . I look awful and totally dumb, but you can see the piercings there XD

And could you do a female set (categorised as a bracelet, too), consisting of the snakebites (studs), the middle labret, septum, madonna-combination (like mine) and a nose stud on the left side?

It would be fantastic, thank you.

Hi, I've followed your instructions and have read everything I can find about downloading but it still doesn't work. I have no other custom content in my game and I've checked and it is switched on. I'm playing Double Deluxe and apartment life on windows 7. I thought that was the problem but windows 7 doesn't seem to be the problem.

Do I need a new mesh or recolour and if so can you link me to getting it please. Thanks, I really want your piercings!

jolina22 : the problem is that you're trying to use sims3 content in the sims2 game.
There are sims 2 piercings out there, just check that the filters are on.

Hey, I was wondering if you can have a simple nose stud in the glasses slot instead of the other ones?

Sure, a left stud or a right stud? For female or for male?

Hi, I have an issue. I like to have my female sims with earrings, but I also like the nose stud, the monroe, and lip ring for various sims. How can all my female sims have earrings but one of the three piercings? If each piercing is "as bracelet" won't they cancel each other? Or just if I try to put say a monroe and lip ring on at same time? Sorry for the confusion! Thanks.

Left for a female Also lol
If I can have snakebites together as a option for glasses would be great
but I'm thankful for whatever you can do.

stryeyeddrmr : the different piercings acting as bracelet don't cancel each others out, as long as they are not on the same sim. You can totally have a sim with earrings and a nose stud (as bracelet) and another with earrings and a monroe (as bracelet). You just can't have ONE sim with earrings and a nose stud (as bracelet) and a monroe (as bracelet).
If you want such a combination, ask here and I'll make you a specific set

MrNobody19 : I'll get to it. You want the snakebites separated from the nose stud, right? Not with it?

So this is a little embarrassing, as I'm familiar with downloading and have done so for years with Sim items. I don't usually do mods, and I saw these piercings and gotta have 'em!

I have Windows 7x64 and use WinZIP for downloads. I can't get the items to show up in the game. Unless they downloaded to the wrong area, WinZIP defaulted to Documents/EA/Sims 3/Downloads, and I extracted all the files there; but nothing shows up. Am I missing something or am I one of those "ur doin it wrong" people? haha

I don't have any CC other than items that came with patch updates and no other mods. The items downloaded to the same folder with the downloaded items (default CC, and those show up normally in game). I have the basic game only with 1.19 patch update.

Reply when you can, this is a head scratcher and haven't usually had problems with other downloads.

AH HA. I figured it out and it was due to my lack of education on mods. (Like I said earlier it's been a while since I've done mods for the games, and the first mod I've gotten for Sims 3)

So I went to http://www.sims2wiki.info/wiki.php?...Setup_and_Files and followed the instructions there. I just didn't have the Mods folder and packages folder nor the resource.cfg file inside the Mods folder. Just took a couple of minutes to transfer each .package file over. I crossed my fingers this last time I opened the game and was like "Please work, zomg..." And they were there!!!

YAY!!!
Thanks for the piercings. SMILIES!!!

I absolutely LOVE these! Could I request a right nose ring, a left monroe, and a labret in silver to all be on the left or right ear? or even glasses? My Sim has all over body tatts and the bracelet ones won't work. Thank you.
