is a new original animated puppet addon. The characters hae been redrawn and there are all new animations. The characters look much better now thanks to the adivce of Chris Ollis and Rampa who showed me how to get a smooth look for a prop. There are less animations but the quality is better than the previous version. The children play on the computer, sit and talk, stand and chat, jump, flip, walk and run. There are two version of the run and walk animations i.e. a long one and a short one. The clothes are all tintable or you can use a texture image. All textures will take an image. There are two extra faces, hair and skin textures for the girls and one extra for the boy. You can also use your own photo images for the faces and skin colors. It is a bit tricky to do. The features have to match the placement of the features for the original puppet, i.e, the eyes, mouth and nose have to be exactly in the same place. If you need help doing this, let me know. I can also make custom chidlren for you and your child images will not be shared with anyone other than yourself.

The animations were created in Milkshape and there is a bit of a problem on importing animations into Moviestorm because the XYZ axis are different in the two programs so things like rotation of the hands for typing, although it is perfect in the mod shop, do not look the way they do in the original animation. I am switching to Max 3d for future animations so I should be able to improve this as well as improve all my animations.

This is a free addon and you can download it at:


It is a zip file and the extra textures are included in the zip file along with the addon.

Yeah, a very nice and smart addon by Lucinda, though it's implemented as an animated prop and have got just a few animations associated, so their thespian capabilities are way too limited.


For a far more complete and sophisticated approach, take a lot at the implementation by Tree: http://www.moviestor...614#entry107391
