CC Find of the Month: Nose Shaper

Nose Anatomy

Thanks to Freedom at MTS for bringing this to my attention!

I don’t know about you guys but I really hate the nose tips and nostrils in sims 3. The nose tip is half decent, I mean you can make the tip large and small, which is great. However, when you enlarge the tip of the nose it affects both the septum and the philtrum, which in turn affects the cupid’s bow, which in turn affects me… by making me shitty.

The nostrils are the bane of my existence. We can make them narrow or wide and we can make them short or tall (definition), which in turn makes the nose-tip shorter or taller. This is a pretty handy thing unless, of course, the celeb you’re making happens to have a tall big nose-tip but short well-defined nostrils. Dilemma.

Anyway this is not why they are the bane of my existence. They are the bane of my existence because they don’t flare in the right bloody direction. I mean what the HELL is that about? Last time I checked, 99.9% of the populations’ noses flared outward. Damn you. *shakes her fist*

Which brings me to my point… what was my point? *shuffles some papers about awkwardly* Oh. Yes!

*drumroll*

The Nose Shaper by Man-V-

Before you get too excited, this won’t fix all the problems I listed above but it does make your sims noses look a whole lot nicer. I’m using it on my retooled Kelly Osborne so I will post some pictures later, or you can check out the wip pic I posted down a bit.

The only problem with the nose shaper is that it is in the blush section. This makes LadyFrontbum sad. But it’s a small thing really.

Oh if you try it out, I suggest that you take the colour slider all the way to the left to make it as light as you can and get rid of any excess shadowing. Oh and make it a little darker than your sims skin. So if you have a pink tone of skin, make the nose a shade or two darker pink, if you have brown toned skin then make it a shade or two darker brown etc. I find if I match the nose and skin perfectly in CAS then ingame the nose looks too pale.

Anyway, that is all for now. Tomorrow I will try and get Kelly Osbourne v2 up for you. I’m pretty happy with how she’s turned out. Just gotta find the perfect hair and clothes for her.

And, yes, I have spent way too much time thinking about sims noses.

S3Z’s Increased Slider Limit Hack / Jonha’s SliderHack

Ok so s3z made a cool hack for increasing the amount of sliders allowed in the game. Thing is, I’ve only just realised there are a couple of versions available. I’m going to have to ask him if he has a page I can point to for the hack instead of just hotlinking, but anyway I thought I would make a page on here so people can find the mod easily when they download my sims.

S3Z’ Increased Slider Limit for 1.7.9
He posted about it at MTS here

S3Z’s Increased Slider Limit (older version)
He posted about it at MTS here

That’s the extent of my knowledge on the hack. If it’s not working for you when you download my sims, you could also try Awesome Mod. I believe it has an increased slider limit option as well.

Jonha also has a sliderhack for people using TS3 v1.8 or WA v2.3
You can find it here with his 10 sliders

Bella3lek4's Facial Sliders

I’m just making a post for Ahmad’s facial sliders to give a little more info on them and so I don’t have to hotlink to the file when uploading to other sites. Also I think they deserve their own post, don’t you? :)

The information below was lifted straight from his thread on MTS, which can be found here (if it still exists)

Sections
(Shoulders height, Jaw line width, Chin width, Brow thickness, Neck height, Eye width, Lower jaw height) in [Head and ears / Global ]

Eyebrow Outer Corner Height , Eye stretch , Eye Length in  [Eyes / Global ]

Maximum and Minimum Values

[-0.1 .. 0.1 .. ]

Do they conflict with other slider mods?
No they don’t .. but if you have too many sliders in 1 section like head and ear section .. some of EA default sliders will get disabled .. Like Jaw sliders ..
this is not my fault . it’s something from the game ..
Unless you have a mod that increase the number of slots in game .. Like the awesomemod ..

Compatibility

Tested on all patches and World adventures .. they work great!

Important information

If you made a sim using these sliders . and then deleted the sliders .. All the things will back to 0 ( Sim will back to normal ) . so you have to make sure that NOT to delete these sliders after using them with creating a sim .. .

Download his sliders here: 4shared mediafire

If these links are both not working, you can also find his sliders at SIMply Celebrity Sims
