Ninjas Wear Black, Dammit!
« on: 2008 November 19, 21:38:09 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

Something simple, just because I thought I needed to do it, and I thought perhaps others here might want it.  There really is nothing to this, I finally added BV recently and realized that I just could not abide by not having a black ninja outfit.  This is the simplest of recolors, just the outfit dark enough to be considered black, yet still light enough to show the detail of the folds and such and not make a flat black void on the computer screen.  There is no mask recolor.  The original gray mask is darker than the uniform, so it does not really look too bad with the black outfit.



Download only the 'ninjablackgrownups' if you have the EAxis ninja outfits (from OFB?) in game already and want the black recolors for adults and elders.  There are no meshes included.  Download the 'ninjablackteens' only if you should have the conversion meshes by Cocomama available here:

Agreed. I hadn't even noticed that the ninja wasn't really black until I saw Kahn's post. Excellent work.

That conversion package is really shit, too. I compressed that one down to like 8K and eliminated the duplicate texture issues.

I like those-nice. I have no ninjas in-game yet but I will definitely use these.

Default replacements?

Heh.  I did a bit of Wardrobe Wrangling last night and reclassified a bunch of stuff.  Unfortunately, I sort of went on autopilot after a bit and I'm pretty sure I townified the ninja outfits.  Considering the sado-random aspects of the game, I expect at some point to see entire neighbourhoods full of black ninjas.

No, just recolor.

Plus, I should perhaps point out, I enabled this uniform for all occasions.  Ever seen a ninja in a winter coat?  I think not.  Ninjas work out in uniform?  Of course.  If you do not like this, feel free to adjust it yourself.  Wardrobe Wrangler works great, or just extract, redo, and then delete the originals.

Kahn, really nice job making it undoubtedly, strongly black but still keeping the shading/highlights clearly discernible. I may have to have a ninja or two in my new 'hood now.

No, I haven't. But that doesn't mean he wasn't there.  Wink

That image scares me. The angle at which his hand is hanging makes it look like his wrist is broken. It looks like bad photoshopping.

That makes sense. I might enable the ninja costumes as workout gear anyway because I like them and they look the part.

I did that for myself a while ago.  It looks great as workout wear, especially during Tai Chi.
I thought about doing the ninja hat/hair/head wrap too, and assign both to all my eastern locals, but I decided it was too much work.

It also looks good as athletic wear for just about anything you don't find under the "exercise" tab. I love using it when they're playing soccer, but I'm weird that way. I also change them into it before they do the Axe throwing competition.

It's certainly less conspicuous than all the joggers running by in ballet tights.

I did that for myself a while ago.  It looks great as workout wear, especially during Tai Chi.

It was actually during the making of ninja uniforms into athletic wear to use for Tai Chi that I realized there was no black.  Previously I had never used them.

I thought about doing the ninja hat/hair/head wrap too, and assign both to all my eastern locals, but I decided it was too much work.

Cloning EAxis masks sucks.  Plus, it creates useless duplicates of non-masked EAxis hair used for sleeping, showering, etc., that you already have in your bin.  Plus, the whole gray hair thing is just unacceptable.  You make masks for each hair color and you end up with four identical ones in the gray custom bin, plus four copies of the gray non-masked hairs.  All, of course, not only the gray, marked custom unless the color binning is manually fixed.  I simply do not have enough interest or patience to sort all of that out.  Stupid EAxis.

I did make some black masks.  They have many of the problems I mentioned, save they are color-binned.  If enough people really wanted them I could possibly share them, but I don't think they are necessary, and they are definitely annoying, at least to me.  Whatever the case, they do not seem worth the disk space required to have them all.  If you really want a mask, I think the gray mask is acceptable.  Not good, but acceptable.  Also, If anyone knows how to fix the mask issues easily and wants to do it, I could provide them for modification.  I am just not that concerned, myself.

I always weed out all the duplicate stuff that you don't want/need.  Hence the "too much work".
Beware when colour binning hats and weird hairs; if you don't change the flags, townies and NPCs will generate with the hairstyle.  In an old neighbourhood I had a taxi driver and restaurant chef both wearing a modified knight's helmet.

Making a default replacement would be less troublesome, but you still have to change the category string for every age and every colour, and I'm lazy.

Edit: OK, I'm not quite as lazy as I thought.
Default replacement version of black texture uploaded.
Recategorized ninja outfits and headgear, available in athletic and everyday, both OFB ninja and BV ninja (unlocked) included in separate and clearly labelled files.  Place in %program files%\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 [LatestEP]\TSData\Res\Overrides to avoid CC star.

Sincere apologies for the invasion, Khan.

Sincere apologies for the invasion, Khan.

No apologies are necessary.  I am assuming these can be used alongside those I have made already.  Also, are you saying one of these packages unlocks the BV ninja uniform as buyable, or it unlocks it and replaces it with black, along with, presumably, the NPC ninja's uniform?  That part is not clear.

Screenies:



The OFB ninja uniforms buyable by, so I've just re-categorized them to appear in Athletic as well as Every Day.  Only the BV ninja is hidden, so I've unhidden it as well as re-categorizing, I haven't replaced those textures.  They're all flagged so that townies will not be spawned in them.

The first file is just a texture replacement that replaces the OFB "black" ninja outfit with your black texture. The same texture is used for both genders, adult to elder.  It won't conflict with yours in any way, put if you use both the texture replacement and your recolours you'll have two identical outfits.

So, understood.  I made my ninja uniform available for all occasions, so I probably would not want to go back from that, especially as outerwear, for instance.  I might actually have some use for the gray someday, so replacing it is not a priority.  I might want an old ninja in gray, for example, as if he has never had another uniform and now it is old and faded like him.  I would like to have the mask available in athletic, however, since the standard behavior loses the mask in athletic mode, as I recall.  Your picture shows that this is no longer the case with your package.

The unlocked BV ninja uniform is of much curiosity, however.  Many thanks, this is indeed great! 


Just for the sake of pedantic clarity, for myself and everyone else:


EP3OFB_NinjaHatAthletic.package  [makes all colors of ninja mask available in athletic wear mode]

EP3OFB_NinjaOutfitAthletic.package  [makes all colors of ninja outfit available in athletic wear mode]

DEFAULTREPLACEMENT_BlackNinjaTexture.package  [replaces default gray OFB ninja uniform, both mask and suit, with proper black]

EP6BV_NinjaOutfitHatAthletic.package  [unlocks BV ninja uniform and mask, makes both buyable, both available in athletic wear, but does not apply any recolor to them]


Any or all packages conceivably usable together or standalone, as preferred, depending upon the desired effect?  This is correct?

The face (and wrist) has been drastically Photoshopped, so it's hard to say what his features might have originally suggested.
