~*Eclipse [Dragon Age 2] Anders*~ **UPDATED ver. 2.0** Sims 4

 



 







This is the huge update to my original Anders Sim. Anders and Fenris were my first attempts at modding for the sims 4 and back then I knew very little about how to layer and properly bin my CAS parts. All of that has been fixed and Anders' hair model and textures have been greatly improved. Hat cuts have been added as well, and I've also included an HQ textured option for people who use the Sims 4 HQ mod.



Additionally I have also added a "Justice" mod. The spirit of Justice within Anders will manifest himself when Anders becomes angry. Special thanks to the creators of The Sims 4 Studio for making it so easy to create nifty little tuning mods like this. :3



On top of that, for those who have the "Cats and Dogs" EP I've included a version of Anders that comes with his cat "Ser Pounce A Lot". :3





*********************



There are SIX versions of this download, all depending on what expansions are owned! A version for Base Game, a Version that uses VFX from "The Sims 4: Get to Work EP", And the "Cat's and Dogs" versions.

Currently only the Base Game and EP01 downloads contain an HQ version, since last time I checked, the HQ mod has yet to be updated for the newest expansion.

Make sure you read the instructions further down in this post and download the correct files!

I have not made outfits for my DA sims yet. I may in the future. You can stay updated on that by following my tumblr at: http://eclipsesims4.tumblr.com/

Do not download the old versions of Fenris or Anders. They are now obsolete. If you have the old files in your mods folder, make sure they are all removed/deleted before installing the new files.


*********************






Anders is one of the four romanceable companions in "Dragon Age 2". He is also my personal favourite character in the series. Anders doesn't have a last name. He is named after his birthplace, the Anderfels. I ended up using this for his surname as well, although it's a bit redundant.



Anders' traits are set as "Romantic", "Gloomy" and "Cat Lover". Without the "Cat's and Dogs" EP "Cat Lover" is replaced with "Neat".

Face Texture and Skin Overlay Info:
Anders DOES NOT come with a full body skin overlay. He only comes with the face texture! Unlike Fenris, Anders will specifically require the BS3 Skin overlay by S-Club. Without the overlay, his facial details will not display correctly! So MAKE SURE you have the required files! The S-Club BS3 skin for adult male sims can be downloaded HERE!

The Face mask is layered so that it will appear over the skin overlay but under all tattoos and makeup. It's will appear in the "skin details" section.

Face texture with S-Club BS3 Skin:


Texture Credits:
-The textures for Anders' Eye colour, Eye Liner, Eye Shadow, Facial hair, and eyebrows are created by myself.

-Anders' face texture is a blend of the maxis sim male face and the Dragon Age 2 male face texture that I then edited and further painted over. I will not take credit for the initial base. That credit goes to Maxis/Bioware.


*********************





Anders' hair is the original hair model extracted from Dragon Age 2 which I've edited quite a bit. I've resized, smoothed and re-layered each section + created new backfaces + UVmapping specifically for The Sims 4. All credit for the original base mesh goes completely to Bioware. Additional info is posted in the disclaimer section below. The mesh textures have also been repainted and edited.

-Hair uses the sims glass shader.
-Contains all Hat cuts.


*********************





I've added an in-game buff to Anders called "Vengeful". It is unique to Anders and is attached to his facial texture package file. When activated, Anders' eyes will glow blue and he will randomly spark electricity. With EP01 "Get to Work" installed there will also be a blue glow effect around him. The buff will activate if Anders is angry and will last 8 hours sim time. It can be easily removed via using a mirror or by other actions that remove angry buffs. The buff has a mood weight of 1. So it is a bit more detrimental than Fenris' "Lyrium Glow" buff. It also has a broadcaster effect. Any sims around Anders will gain the "Someone needs to calm down!" buff and a +2 to tense. They will also react shocked upon seeing him in this state.





***Make sure you have removed ALL angry buffs from Anders if you want to remove the Vengeful Buff. It will re-activate as long as he remains angry!

The glowing effect is a VFX from the "The Sims 4: Get to Work" Expansion pack. So if you DO NOT have that expansion installed I am unsure if the glow effect will actually work. Just in case, I've uploaded a "Base Game" version of the files for anyone that might have issues.

If you use the versions of Anders without EP01 the glow effect will not display, but his eyes will still glow blue and the electric effect will still work.

There are 6 different Downloads here. Only Download ONE of them! Make sure to read all instructions!

***IMPORTANT: I will reiterate here that if you have downloaded my original Anders Sim you MUST delete the old files from your mods folder. Any package Files that start with "Lunar Eclipse" and End in "[DAAnders]". Keeping any old files in the game will cause conflicts. So make sure all those files are removed!***

I've gone a little more in-depth with this section than I normally do, considering that in some cases there can be issues when assets from one game are used in another game. Even though I've resized and heavily edited the meshes/textures, the original bases from certain parts of this mod are still extracted from "Dragon Age 2" and are fully credited to Bioware. If there are any issues and I am asked to remove anything, those parts of this download will be removed without question! I am hoping there are no issues considering that both games support mods and both Maxis and Bioware are owned by Electronic arts.

This mod is free and shared for personal and non commercial use in "The Sims 4" only!

Lunar Eclipse owns no rights and has no connections to Anders, Ser Pounce A Lot, Bioware, or any associated affiliates.
