Cloaked in Magic

ScoobySnax Accessories, Conversions, Female, The Sims 4, TS2 to TS4

  • Cloak In CAS Mode
  • Cloak in game without hood

A cloak, A cloak, my kingdom for a cloak… It’s hard to find a decent cloak anywhere for TS4. So I decided to take a the best available on TS2 and convert it to TS4. What a nightmare journey it has been!

This cloak is a Sims 4 conversion of Cynnix Hooded Cloak for TS2, All credit for this cloak goes to Cynnix, I’ve merely adapted it for my own purposes in TS4. I have had to rework the original mesh a little to fit the modern day sims of TS4, and as such it is by no means perfect.

I must stress that I am not an experienced mesher and all this, is really just a part time hobby of mine; so please forgive it for being a little rough around the edges. By all means, if you can improve on what I have done so far, please do and please share – it would be nice to have some decent cloaks to swoosh about in! Or if you have some advice on how I can improve it, I am only too happy to listen.

At the moment the cloak is only compatible with Teen to Adult Females. I have had some trouble with larger sims, both overweight and muscular. However with a slight adjustment to shoulder width in CAS it can look ok. I do plan to relase a male version a childs version; however I just need some time to do it.

The cloak appears within CAS > Accessories > Glasses.Some other issues with the cloak are:

  • Its not great with all hairs. It’s a case of trial and error, to see whats good and what’s a pile of pants!
  • The cloak length is not correctly bone assinged. No matter what I try it ends up causing weirdness.
  • Kinda hangs through furniture when sitting down and because of bone assignment, pokes out when sims bend.

The hood is a modification of the TS4 hood and appears within CAS > Hats.
Warning! Elf ears show through the side of the hood, If you have them equipped.
