"Let Me Entertain You"

I bring you two new NPC's  that will entertain your Sims as long as they will stand and watch.  The first is for period games and the second is for non-period games.  Put one of these fellas on your home or community lot and watch the fun begin.

The first is "Borin" the Medieval Jester for your period lots.  I must say though, he is anything but boring.  He  will dance, juggle, play hand puppets and generally make a medieval 'fool' of himself for the enjoyment of your Sim Lords and Ladies.  Watching him increases fun and generates lots of laughter, foot stompin' and belly grabbin'.  He's a silly fool, but he's loved by nobles and peasants alike!












Podium Faces: 20
The Jester is an NPC, and so it has the equivalent poly count of most sims.

Appears in the Catalog under Miscellaneous/Party for 100 Simoleons

Installation:  Unzip  the Medieval Jester.rar and place the entire resulting folder wherever you normally place your downloaded custom content.  All the files in the folder are necessary for the jester to work!  Mesh files and recolor files by other artists have been renamed to prevent inadvertent deletion or overwriting.  They all retain their original GUIDs.




And as a special gift for all those who do not play a period game, may I present "Sammy the Mime".  He'll  perform the same silly, ridiculous antics as the jester and play the idiot for any Sim who will watch.  He invokes the same reactions and mood boosts as the jester. 

Here you see him entertaining the Goths at Cassandra's wedding party:

The Mime is an NPC, and so it has the equivalent poly count of most sims.

Appears in the Catalog under Miscellaneous/Party for 100 Simoleons

Installation:  Unzip the Dancing Mime.rar and place the entire resulting folder wherever you normally place your downloaded custom content.  Both of the files in the folder are necessary for the mime to work!

Credits:
Echo for her dancing carnival clown from which I gleaned information to create my NPC's.
Kaitshi for the jester costume mesh.
Bobby for the jester tutu mesh.
DSB for the jester hat mesh.
Meshy for the recolors used for the jester costume, hat and tutu.

Notes:  

When initially placing the podiums, no NPC will be seen.  Once the game is placed in 'live' mode, the NPC will spawn and begin performing.
  
The podiums can only be moved while there are no NPC's on it. Once the NPC has been spawned, you'll need to use "Moveobjects on" to move or delete the podium.

Both the Jester and the Mime are Base Game compatible.
Tested in a vanilla game with all expansions plus M&G.

  2. I think I might have already see this. You had already uploaded it on another website; had you ?
    Even though, I love it : it's quite perfect for my medieval hood.

    1. Yes, both files were originally uploaded to Affinity Sims. However, they are no longer available there.

  3. Love them! When the jester/mime is generated, are they copied to the Characters folder (like the maid, fireman, etc.) or "run" from the downloaded file (like Mrs. Crumplebottom)?

    1. Glad you like them. They are "run" from the download file.
