Trade-off - Trapping - Closed
trappingit wrote in thebigtradeoff
What I Can Make: Pretty much anything in Bodyshop and HomeCrafter. I sort of know my way around objects too, but I'm far from an expert.
My General Style: Rather modern (think H&M and IKEA), semi maxis-match/semi-realistic.
Amount of Participants I Want: I think I'll start out with 5 (if I get that many), but if more people happens to be interested I could raise it :) Going for ten, so five spots remain ^_^ All spots are full :)
What I'd Like to Receive: I'm not very picky. I'm happy as long as it fits my game. Hair re-textures, clothing for any age or gender (casual, comfy, nerdy, rock-y, classic... I have room for almost anything in my game - boyish clothing for the ladies is always very welcome!), objects, 3t2-conversions, walls, floors, skinblends, facial hair, makeup... anything goes, really ^_^

What I Can Make: I'm quiet new with creating so basically Sims, clothes-retextures, floors, walls, lots... hopefully I'll learn to do more stuff soon.
My General Style: maxis-match
What I'd Like to Receive: TM clothes, Undies for both sexes, PJs for both sexes, swimwear for both sexes, Anything with boots or UGGs, anything with oxfords, anything with converse, anything with loafers sunglasses, hats, hair, s3>s2 stuff (whatever you like), separates, maxis match makeup, beards and stubble, maxis match eyebrows.

Edited at 2012-06-15 06:48 pm (UTC)

Accepted ^_^
I'd LOVE some walls or floors!! Something rather modern and simple (and tileable <3) would be ideal, I'll give you completely free hands. I'm sure I could whip something up for you as well, your list have tons of great ideas :D

Now to do this properly:

What I can make: Most of you know I do TS3-TS2 conversion so that's a given. I can also do some recoloring and I've been working on my shoe swapping skills so I can swing that.

My general style: I prefer semi-realistic, non grungy stuff.

What I'd like to recieve: I would love makeup that fits darker skintone ranges (I use Rensims Peau if that helps); some short hairstyles for males, classic male clothing of any age (I've been into suspenders and brogues lately), wavy/curly/kinky hair textures (I really dig the tight corkscrew texture Trapping got from the TS3 African Inspired set); sims with interesting bone structures, face templates that are super interesting (on non-default templates would be too awesome); patterned object recolors, shoe swaps with flats; skirts and dresses with tights; Simlish posters; hair recolors; pretty much whatever you can do. It's all in the spirit of learning!

Definitly accepted 8D
If you want restricted wishes, I'd love to see pyszny16's Maria Study Room-set converted from TS3 to TS2. It can be found over at TSR (it's free, so it's not at the booty, but I could download it if you don't have an account there). But I'm not picky and all your conversions are completely awesome, so I wouldn't have any trouble leaving what to make entirely up to you (I like surprises :D).
I'm sure I can think of something to make for you in return, the list you wrote sounds very interesting ^_^

Sorry for being so late but here we go:

Download Link:

A bit of a warning. When your first place the computer you see the cd drive off to the left but once the Sim uses the computer it disappears and doesn't appear again. I managed to fix the animation so it looks pretty good.

Edited at 2012-07-07 03:00 am (UTC)

Wow *_* It looks awesome, thank you so much! :D <3

What I Can Make: Sims, clothing recolors, hair retextures, makeup, and eyes.
My General Style: Maxis-match-y build/buy mode things, and clothing, more realistic-ish genetics and makeup.
What I'd Like to Receive: Anything at all would be awesome.

Are you really sure about the "anything at all"-part? Because if there's a specific hair you'd want converted or something else that you'd like so see I'd be happy to go more into details. If not then of course I can whip something up anyway ^_^
Clothing recolors or makeup would be very cool :D

I love all things dinosaur, and anything with a rockstar flair, but I'm really not picky. I love everything you make.

EDIT: Finished!

I made you a goatee in the four colors, Pyrotechnic, Depth Charge, Dynamite and Volatile, that you use on hairs, and elders do go gray, with Mail Bomb.


Edited at 2012-06-25 05:47 pm (UTC)

Thank you so much, it looks awesome :D

I would love to make you something. :)
What I Can Make: Bodyshop, makeup, eyes, clothes, etc. Also walls, floors, and object recolors.
My General Style: I guess it would be realistic/semi-realistic, oftentimes a little grungy, and kind of modern. It gets a little apocalyptic and sci-fi-ish too. Oh and I usually play a desert hood if that 's relevant at all.
What I'd Like to Receive: I don't really mind. :) I especially like all of the clothes that you make, though, and I would love some 'tough' or 'weathered' looking clothing for my guys and girls. I'm also a sucker for walls and floors.

;~; <3 *fangirl moment* ANYTHING by you would completely make my day so feel free to make whatever you'd like!
I'll see what I can come up with for you. Tough or weathered clothing sounds challenging, but who doesn't like a challenge once in a while? Do you happen to have seasons in case I'd end up making outerwear? Or I cound make some hiking-gear. Or everyday-looking hiking-gear... I'll think of something for sure ^_^

I have your gifts! :)

First up is a set of natural lips for both Men and Women.


Alpha - Bruno
Textures - Mouseyblue, Ephemera, and LaPink


And a then second lip blend.

Additional Picture | Swatch

Alpha - LaPink, Lvasm, and some hand painting.
Texture - HystericalParoxysm, Aweeshie, Nabila


And lastly, a set of Pajamas. I tried to make most of the colors darker but a couple brighter ones sneaked in there too. ;)

Textures - Tantra & Adele
Mesh - Adele


I hope you like them! And I LOVE the things you made! WOODEN FLOORS! I can never get enough wooden floors. And those outfits are absolutely perfect for my game!! Really, they are just my style. Thank you so much. They are all lovely! ♥

Everything looks so incredibly gorgeous, I can't thank you enough! I'm speechless. Thank you, thank you, thank you <3
I'm glad you like what I made for you too. I'm not going to lie - I was quite nervous that you wouldn't.

Oh please trade with me! :3

What I Can Make: sims, hair retextures, alpha edits of makeup & hair, accessory recolours

My General Style: Modern & Semi-Realistic, I suppose.

What I'd Like to Receive: I'd like these outfits with these boots :3

(Screened comment)
I finished up your gift this evening. It seems to have taken me a lot longer than I'd anticipated, considering I didn't exactly do anything fancy. :'| What I have here for you is a lipblend, a mixture of two sets by nabila in my colours - base tone is flesh, so if there's something you'd like to do there, I'd advise on that one - and I made you 8 (9?) recolours of those bangle earrings. Two of which are wood textures, the rest are patterns. The mesh is included. Then I made you two female sims. I had intended to make you one male and one female, but I was really having a rough time making sims for some reason. I like these two, anyway, and I hope you do to - they have names, but those are up to your discretion! :]


Eeee, thank you so much <333
The sims are so beautiful, the earrings so pretty and the lips and and I love everything *_*
I'll try to have your gift up later today, the files are already finished, but I don't know if my dropbox-account is willing to cooperate with me or not. I feel so lame only giving you a shoeswap. How about a teen-conversion of the outfit with Stradlin's boots while I'm at it? You play teens too? :)

a teen conversion would be lovely. :3 And don't feel lame, a shoe swap is beyond my entire scope, so you've already helped me a million times over!

My first go at participating for TBTO *nervous*

What I Can Make: Clothing recolors, just started going into object recolors, sims, lots (I enjoy making community lots more than homes), might try recoloring accessories too.
My General Style: modern, maxis-match for build/buy/clothes, semi-realistic for CAS stuff besides clothes
What I'd Like to Receive: teen/adult/elder clothing (I'd like to exclude dresses and skirts as I have too many, so pants/shorts/etc type outfits or separates). I like summer time clothing, like tank tops, short sleeves, no sleeves, etc. I'm also fond of oversized tops, even just regular t shirt Chucks, flats, or sandals for shoes. I like your ts3 conversions, esp hair. I'm also open to build/buy mode stuff. And of course mens stuff could always use more of xP.

if you want specifics, ive always wanted this top to extend and be untucked:

But ultimately, you choose what ya want to do, id be happy with even being gifted in the first place :P

Accepted, I'll definitly see what I can do with that tanktop - extending it and making it untuckable sounds like an idea that could work splendidly :D
It's love some clothing-,object- or accessory-recolors. I'm not picky as of what is recolored, so I'll leave you completely free hands, I'm sure whatever you come up with will be awesome ^_^

(Screened comment)
(Screened comment)
We both seem to like plain solid colors, so I made two recolor sets with colors leaning towards your taste! (hopefully!)

I haven't seen these been recolored (if there was, oops!) 6 colors that work for both genders & for teens, adults, and elders. They are in separate folders so you can take out which you dont want. AM mesh is required for the rest of the meshes to work, stated by Ja. Originals here

Meshes Included

Here are recolors of TS3 dining chairs, where the one on the right is slaved. There was also a loveseat in her set that was suppose to be slaved but it didnt pick up the recolors, so I left that out. Originals here

Meshes included

Hope these fit your game! *nervous that this gift seems too plain x(*

Edited at 2012-06-19 07:23 am (UTC)

What I Can Make: Pretty much any kind of Bodyshop recolours, plus walls, floors, sims, lots and object recolours.
My General Style: Semi-Maxis match, fairly alternative, modern.
What I'd Like to Receive: I adore pretty much everything you make, so I'm not too picky. Some more alternative-ish formal wear for guys would be nice, though, if you need ideas... (Maybe something like a suit with combat boots instead of dress shoes?)

Eeee *exited* I love the punky style of the cc you make and would love to do a trade with you :D
I love fishnets and dark makeup.. oh, or maybe some kind of punky hairstyle? Or some cool gothic band-tees in simlish? I'll stop brainstorming now, whatever you end up making will be much liked, I'm sure of it!

How about fishnet AND gothic band-tees in simlish? :)

Three real-life band shirts (from left to right: Sisters Of Mercy, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Birthday Massacre), edited to have Simlish band names. Each one has different length fishnet sleeves, and all three are available for both AF and AM.

Credit to Aikea for the mesh, textures and fishnet alpha.


And a small bonus gift, just because it was something I wanted to make anyway and you said you liked dark makeup:

Credit to Amaryll and Rensim.


Hope you like them. :)

Oh gosh, everything looks so awesome! I love it, thank you so much <3
I'll try to have my part of the trade done as soon as possible :)

I'm glad you like them, they were a lot of fun to make. :)

The suit with boots is perfect, thank you so much! :D I can't wait to get home so that I can download it. <3

I missed out last time, so I don't want to make the same mistake twice!

So, if you're happy to trade with me, here goes... :)

What I can make: Bodyshop retextures/recolours (clothing, makeup, eyes, skintones, accessories - everything except hair really); I have dabbled in accessory meshing; all kinds of object meshes, recolours and retextures, including TS3>TS2 conversions; walls, floors & terrain paints; SimPE stuff (defaulting, repositorying, etc.).

My general style: semi-realistic for genetics, tending towards Maxis-match for clothing. Natural, subtle makeup. Semi-realistic, vintage/retro/slightly worn for decor and furnishings.

What I'd like to receive: I cannot get enough Pookleted hair (I'm rather fond of Lilth's and/or Io's colours too, although I never use the 'Bastet' red), especially short hair for girls, and I'm a big fan of old meshes being revived or TS3 conversions. Also, since clothing meshing still baffles me (morphs - arggggh!), anything along those lines would be great too - I use a lot of separates, and I'm a very happy bunny if something has Converse, wedges, flats, Doc's, Sentate's/Amaryll's T-bar heels (but not the 'Emma' boots) or creepers. There isn't much I don't like though - I'd also be very happy to receive walls/floors, makeup, accessories, skintones, object recolours, or anything else you might care to make!

I actually already have something in mind that I'd like to make for you (would you like a surprise?!), but obviously let me know if there's anything in particular you'd like me to make! :)

Edited at 2012-06-16 02:32 pm (UTC)

You should have seen my face when I saw that you'd replied, I was (and am still) completely overjoyed. I LOVE surprises so I'm not going to interrupt you with ideas of my own (not that I have any, my mind is at a complete blank due to all the happiness and amazement). I love everything on your list of what you'd like in return, so I hope I'll be able to think of something to make for you that hopefully will be to your liking (I have some short male-hairs in mind that could use some M2F-converting, if that sounds ok with you) :D

Thank you so, so much - you really have been too generous, my dear Lina! I adore all the hairs (I thought you were just going to do one!), and the top-only dress is just so 'me'! *Happy dance* :D

I know the 'From CuriousB' section is sadly empty at the moment, but I promise it won't be so for too long. ;)

Accepted :D
I think I'd better go with male clothing, as I sort of have an idea of something that I'd like to make. I'd be happy with whatever you make, so I'll let you descide what you want to do ^_^ <3

(Deleted comment)
*_* <3
I adore that cardigan by Bunheadsbuns so more colors is VERY welcome! And I don't have that many lashes, so those will be very usefull. Thank you so much, I am almost speechless by how perfect these will suit my game ;~; <3
I havn't even had time to start on your gift yet (I feel so bad about that), but I will as soon as possible!

To make things easier to find and download, I have reuploaded my (Uleishi) gifts.

Preview one / Preview two

Download Lashes / Download Cardigans

What I can make: Sims, lots of all kinds, and paintings.

My General Style: Anything goes, really. Though my sims tend to be more realistic.

What I'd Like to Receive: Anything 1920's, though teen/elder clothing would make me the most happy I wouldn't mind anything.

(Screened comment)

Sorry for the lack of a preview picture, for some weird reason my computer is refusing to show any CC paintings on maxis meshes at the moment and my poor friend already has tested out a couple paintings for me, I didn't want to strong arm her into making previews also.

Meshes are: Pineapple, Two Dogs and a Olive, Untitled (comes with GL), and Surfing the Universe. If you're missing a mesh tell me and I can move the paintings onto others. I also used art from both people you showed me, hopefully I didn't miss any pictures that you really wanted.

Thank you so much. I havn't had time to look at them yet, but I'm sure they'll be perfect ^_^
Have you made sure you've got CEP (can be found over at MTS or through a quick google-search) installed? The game wont show recolors of maxis meshes unless CEP is installed, so that might be the problem :)
Oh, and I updated my post with my part of the trade. I hope you'll like them :3

*squee* Thank you so much, these are perfect!

This is a post full of shame, I couldn't make the carpet, I'm not really good at it (For now) but I've made you 3 lots, two are supposed to be in Twikki Island, am really sorry I couldn't make what you asked for :( I hope you forgive me, hopefully I'm planning some walls and floors to come soon. Maybe I'll give it another try tonight?

So let's begin:

56 Klipan Way


Costs 66,000

101 Beach View Way


Costs 50,000

Relax Center


Download here:

Sorry again if I was useless :(

Edited at 2012-06-22 12:38 pm (UTC)

I don't use custom lots very often, but these look really cool. I love the interior pictures, especially for 101 Beach View Way. And the way you put the hedges outside of 56 Klipan Way is something I'd never thought of doing myself. Thank you so much, and don't feel bad about not ending up making what was asked for, I'm more than happy the way things turned out :D
