Sims Saturday – The Sims4 – Building Me!

Well, it had to happen sooner or later.

I’ve tried to build myself in The Sims4. It’s hard work, particularly since you can’t get out of the “ideal” curvy shape in Sims4 like you could with Sims3. That being said, I tried to reference my own photos and get a decent look-alike. It looks nothing like me but at the same time has shades of me, but hell, I managed to give her good cheekbones and kick-arse makeup!

If the developers would allow you to super-impose a photograph of a person over the Sim face in game, I think it would make the “push-pull” style of editing much easier. I am hopeless at copying – even when it’s my own face and you would think that I would know my own face, right? Nope. The CAS (create-a-sim) machine also has it’s limitations. You can only make the mouth so big, the eyes so small, etc, before everything starts looking a little funky. At one point I looked like a weird Asian version of myself. Ack!

I have two awesome new house builds coming up for you soon. I would have been releasing one tonight, however due to a third-party MoveObjects mod I had installed before EA released the official MoveObjects cheat, it suffered all sorts of glitchiness that needed to be fixed. At the same time I ended up remodelling the house. (I’m a sad Sims nerd. Sorry.) I am also trying to figure out how to do one of those nifty fly-through type of videos so you can see a “live action” film of my houses in all their glory.
