Default No ears mod, WIP
This was a request and is intended to be used with fantasy ears - cat or dog ears, etc. - so the human ears won't show. While it's usable my feeling is that it's not really up to MTS standards and I don't know where to go from here.

There are two parts: an ear CAS preset that flattens the ears to the head and a skin details that covers the ear shading in the sim skin. Both have to be applied.

Known issues:
What looks like a tiny hole in the adult male flattened ears. Could be a face with peculiar normals but I've been unable to get rid of it despite endless smoothing.
Some unevenness in the flattened ears. I use Milkshape which isn't very good in this area.
The toddler preset doesn't work properly, and I suspect something besides the mesh is shaping the toddler ears.
Some hairs interact oddly with it, making light or dark spots appear.

I need to move on to other projects for now but I'm putting this here in hopes of testing, advice, opinions; maybe someone with better meshing skills will want to look at it.

Awww...!! I didn't think that you forgot about my request. I just thought that you where working on other projects since you work so hard on the quality of your mods so much. Thank you so very much for trying your best anyway though! Although..... I kind of have another idea. Maybe someone could make an invisible ear skin detail, and then make a ear accessory to cover the hole??? Kind of like the no hair hat accessory that Coupure Electrique made (It's a hat that deletes hair on a sim.) Maybe that could work???... MAYBE????... I don't know. I'm not a modder in ANY WAY! So I have NO clue on how difficult this might be !!!!

Aww, neat, I've been wanting a mod like this for a while! I see the little holes you mentioned, but they're not noticeable enough to bother me personally. I unfortunately can't offer any advice or anything, but I can thank you for the mod, I definitely have use for it! Thank you so much!

If the skin color on an accessory could be made to match so there's no seam, that could work. Or a simpler option could be to do an accessory replacement head with no ears. Possibly a skin details with a mesh if that can be done. Hmmm.

Works great for me:


Would it be possible to do the same to other facial parts? Like no eyes, no mouth, no nose?

Sure it's possible, but it's a lot of rather finicking meshing work to remove features.

Is there away for you to make your Alien pointed ear mod ear tips to point outward too when you drag them? And what I by that is, when you drag the ears all the way, they seem to curl inward towards the sides of the sims head. It kind of annoys me that EAxis didn't think to add that. And great job with this too! Thank you!
