The Adventures of Inga Thonnsdotter
Episode 5: In Which Inga Gets Civilized


For spring break, Our Heroine ventured with her roommates to the strange foreign realms of St. Tropez on the French Riviera, where she tried (without success) to even out her tan. Inga quickly became resigned about her stubborn tan lines, blaming their recalcitrance on the freaky braphobic censorious winds that tend to rise without warning on the beach.

Hang in there. The download is the next image down the page.

On the second day of her vacation, Inga encountered our Primary Guilty Party. While discussing life, the universe, and how to solve all the world's problems if only people would listen, they got to talking about their favorite strategy games. It turned out that they shared a mutual interest in Civilization II, and on upon that tiny grain of sand grew a lasting friendship.

"I'm so addicted to Civ II that I bought the French edition just so that I could play it on my laptop!" he said.

"I'll go you one better!" Inga said. "Wait 'til you see the outfit I picked up my first day in town!"

He smiled and said, "I rather like the outfit you're wearing now!"

"Oh you'll like this one better-- erm... maybe not. But I know you'll like it!"

"In which case, I can't wait to see it!"

"Tell ya what. If you let me play Civ II on your laptop, I'll wear it tonight!"

"It's a deal!" he said.

That evening, Inga showed up at his door dressed for some serious world-conquering:

"Oh wow!" he said. "Yup! I definitely like that outfit! So, ready to play?"

"Sure!" she said. "I wish it was a two-player game, though."

"We can do that. We just go into cheat mode and take turns setting which civilization is assigned to the human player."

"That will work! Which civilization do you want to play?"

"Well, I usually like to play the Greeks," he said. "Nobody picks on 'em except the Romans--"

She made a face. "Forget the Romans! Murderous psychopaths!"

"Yeah, what you said. But since we're in France, I was thinking maybe the French--"

Her wry face transitioned into a sly wink. "Tell ya what," she said, "If you do the French, I'll do the Greeks!"

"Inga, you're my kinda gal!" he said. "But Civ II is a very long game and vacation time is pretty tight. Do you think we can fit it all in?"

"You'll be surprised what I can do when I'm determined!" she said.

With that, they settled down to some serious and determined game play.




Later that night...

"Well, so much for my spotless reputation!" he said.

"Yeah, I've heard about your reputation," she replied. "But that doesn't matter because your power is supreme!"





In the first image, Inga is wearing her blue suit from Inga's Topless Swimsuit Collection.

You can download her skin tone she has in these images from The Return of Tan Lines.

The Romans won the game. They both chalked it up to being distracted by the susurration of the censorious winds blowing on the beach.

lol Mine too! It looks very comfy and the sims look really cute in it. I've been thinking of making more variations on the theme. I just need to get some serious play time and then convince myself that I really want to turn off my game long enough to make an outfit.
embarrassed

Very nice Greg! Thanks! =D

How DO you DO IT? not worthy

I agree, this does look comfortable . . . I'd like a set IRL, then again that would require me to get a tan and I'm lucky if my arms get any color in the summer. :::: sigh ::::: lol

lol Thanks, Carrot!

It's all in the alpha channels! Other than that, it's just a matter of fiddling with the details. (That's why I don't make many skins; I spend my time obsessing over piddly details on the simplest of outfits.) Seriously, if anybody wants to make a derivative of any of my skins (which everyone hosted by SimsHost is welcome to do), do take a moment to look at the alpha. Many hidden secrets lurk in the alpha channel.

Speaking of which, here's a preview of a coming attraction. I have to fix one edge of the alpha channel and update the normal map before I can put it on line.


Preview of Coming Attractions: Shebacize!
You can download the Shebacize outfit from this topic.

It doesn't show up in Body Shop, but when She reaches forward in the game, a few pixels of the arm show that aren't visible when Her arms are relaxed.

I have about 8 hours invested in just the alpha channel for this outfit. It's the trickiest one I've done yet. You might not be able to see in the screen shot, but She's wearing fishnets and a leotard panty, and if you look close up in the game you can even faintly see the outline of Her bra through the t-shirt. That last bit is just one of those details that you probably wouldn't consciously notice, but if it's not there, the tight T-shirt just doesn't look quite right.

For the same reason, Inga's Civ II shirt is very slightly transparent except at the seams.

The really tricky part for the Shebacize outfit's texture map was the shoes. And of course I just now noticed that in the screen shot the game buried the sole of her right foot in the concrete. "The best-laid schemes..."

I was wallowing in reminiscence, rereading lots of old topics in our newly resurrected Hullabaloo, and wondered if anyone noticed all the terrible innuendos in the lead story.
lol

Part of it's the "French and Greek" stuff... just read it and pretend you're in Jr. High again...
