Greetings fellow Simmers,
for some time now I am using Kickers Animated Woohoo mod for The Sims 3 and was quite amazed of how it breathed new life into my Sims3 game. However as for every Mod you'll reach it's frontiers quite soon, as you've seen every single aspect of it a couple of times.
This is the usual moment where you start looking for MORE...
...which is also the moment you run into the certain problem that the amount of new content for this amazing mod is somewhat limited due the lack of contributors that actively tender their animation addons.
I've seen some people now begging/requesting more content but the creators are also only humans that can't do the work in time of what an entire community demands of them.
After seeing the dire need of animators I decided to get myself involved and start doing animations myself! Which wouldn't be a big deal if it was the animations I came up with only. It was what the actual process of actually becoming a capable contributor for this mod made me think of a certain truth:
THERE IS NO SPECIALIZED TUTORIAL FOR THIS PARTICULAR MOD TO CREATE ANIMATIONS WITH
All I had were the posing tutorials and rigs suited for that but no centralized information about how to tie everything up and make it working, well this was...
The last three days i haven't just spend gathering information, try things out, fail and start again until i finally reached full and complete success in every extent. NO, i've also took all my experience i've gained over that time,took all my testing and petrifyfied it into ONE PACKAGE.
I proudly present you the first complete Animated Woohoo Step-For-Step Picture-Guided Tutorial Starter Pack, that has EVERYTHING you need in order to get your most wicked Animation Ideas in-game!
This Starter Pack contains, every External Modding Programm, Plug-Ins and the precise description on how to use them to your advantage in one single archive file!
Search no more for missing programs! Search no more for missing informations as this pack has it ALL!
The best of it is that the Tutorial comes in a solid .PDF file that has all important Pictures, Informations and Material Links you'll need without the necessary requirement of having Internet! Take this .PDF anywhere, plus the Tools archive along with Blender (Which you still have to download manually once) and start doing Animations wherever you find a suitable creative environment!
ENOUGH TALK NOW! It's time to get you guys all the Toys you ever wanted with the endless possibilities of this mod combined with the frontiers only set by your own creativity and skills in Blender.
Stop begging for new content and start enriching the community, TODAY!
I'd be very glad to hear from you folks if that guide finally got you into making animations for Sims3 and how helpful it was to you. Any suggestion and Ideas to improve the Tutorial or even the overall Starter Pack is appreciated.
I also want to thank everybody who made these awesome tools, tutorials i've learned from and all other pretty materials already present!
Since all I did was just completing the already pretty picture ^^.
Happy Simming and animating!
