Featured upload! 20 Sliders

This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is a set of 20 face sliders available for use in Bodyshop, CaS, and in the plastic surgery view. These sliders create inheritable facial features (of course if not used for a plastic surgery), and can be used on uploaded sims without downloaders needing to download the slider in order for the sim to display properly. Sim files do not contain information about used sliders.

If you have my pre-release set of sliders (simNopke-sliders1) delete it before you install the new set.

Contents of the set
  • 2 full face siders:
    • ear rotation
    • ear sticking-out
  • 2 brow sliders:
    • eyebrows distance
    • eyebrow head thickness
  • 2 eye sliders:
    • eyelash curl
    • eye squint
  • 5 nose sliders:
    • septum width
    • nostril height
    • nose root depth
    • nose definition
    • nasal tip size
  • 6 mouth sliders:
    • cupid's bow shape
    • upper lip raise
    • lips depth difference
    • cupid's bow width
    • cupid's bow height
    • lower lip center height
  • 3 jaw & chin sliders:
    • chin crease depth
    • chin cleft
    • chin definition

Conflicts
The sliders themselves won't conflict with anything, but their icons use a Maxis group, so slider creators have to be careful while setting instances for icons.

You are definitely my hero! I've been wanting something to make ears that stick out for ages!

Now if only it was possible to make body height sliders then TS2 would be perfect! :P

Hmm... I wonder if it would be possible to make an ear tip point slider/ear tip length slider to make it easier to give Sims pointed elf-like ears? It's always bothered me that the only want to give Sims elf ears is to completely remake the face, that you can't select ears separately (like you can select nose shape, eye shape and so on separately from the overall face shape).

Iconic. Honestly, truly.

Thanks for cracking that awful myth that said it's impossible to add new sliders to the game.
Now what dammit?

No I don't think so @d_dgjdhh - Nopke says on the upload page:
"These sliders create inheritable facial features ... and can be used on uploaded sims without downloaders needing to download the slider in order for the sim to display properly. Sim files do not contain information about used sliders."

I'm pretty sure that that means (my emphasis) once the sim's faces are set with the sliders, they have no more influence over them. Being able to put them in games without the sliders present shows that. That's generally how the game works anyway - once you've set up the sim, the creation tools are no longer relevant.

Unfortunately body sliders can't be created this way. It works differently than in The Sims 3. For now, I can only create face sliders.

Yes, custom sliders for pets are possible.

I've tried and it turned out that the face mesh doesn't have enough polygons. It looked like sunken cheecks.

Something about sims' height.

It is possible, but recreating Maxis elf ears is laborious. I would like to make a set of supernatural sliders, but don't expect it soon.

I don't speak English well.

I really really love this. Maybe I can try to create some simmies now.
But are these added sliders? Will they replace any existing sliders?

which game are you using? you need to use the body shop for the most recent ep you have. you also need to give it 20+ minutes to load if you have a lot of cc. also you need to empty the game caches regularly in the "sims 2" folder in your ea games folder. i thought my body shop "wasn't starting either" until i understood those three things.
