Layerable Piercing Set

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.

None of the programs that I have for unzipping will unzip these which is really unfortunate because they are the ONLY good looking piercings for Sims 3. WinZIP for Mac won't allow me to open multiple files within a folder for some reason. It'd be super awesome if you were able to have them as individual downloads.

These are fantastic, but I was wondering if it would be possible to group them together in the CAS menu? I'm a bit of a piecing-aholic, and I'm worried htat if I download every version of every piercing (which would be ideal, for maximum customization) it will lag up my came, considering how much CC i already use.

I've seen other items for dowload where all the items go in one tray in the CAS menu (despite not being differently colored clones of each other). I don't know if this is possible to do with these items in particular, but it would make my day if it was

I've downloaded these a couple times now and have not been able to get these to show up in my game. Not sure what the issue is but I hope we can figure it out since I'd love to have these.

You know what I hate? Piercings set as 2D face masks. So I hope this isn't one of those... They look promising, so I'll try them out!

Is there a way i can choose my own categories? I use a custom CAS camera so zooming won't be a problem...because there's so many new categories that I don't use, that way it will be easier to use all the accessories I'd like for my sim. Thanks

What folder do I need to put the packages in? I was expecting them to be Sims Custom Content files like my other ones but I've never had to deal with package files before.

So glad i found these again, was throwing a fit cause i somehow lost my downloaded sets .. would it be possible for you to make some of the piercings come under a glove or socks catagory so i can still use earings with them ...would be awesome .. but thank you again for making great piercings!

Edit: I forgot to add, I only use Nose / Snakebite and single labret piercing. As lip counts for bracelet, would only need noserings set as sock/glove .. Would appreciate it muchly, or even if you could explain how to change the set catagory. ... But still thanks again!

These are amazing. I'm definitely downloading. For some reason, I think Bebe Hart (in Sunset Valley) would look good with a couple of these. Lol.

If they do not show you need options graphics on high I am guessing. Do these work for college students?
