So many men, so little time.

By popular demand, some of my favorite male sims previously posted at GOS at GSC, hope you like them. They have quite balanced features, so they also look good as females and should breed nicely.

I used quite a minimum of CC and some EP stuff, but if you don't have them nothing will happen really except that they will show up with whatever replacement the game thinks fit and some make-up you'll have to remove. Another thing than can happen is that they show up sort of grayish in CAS, if so select a skintone and a hair color and they'll go back to normal. In any case if you want a base game CC free version please let me know.

I had a very hard time taking the pics and they weren't collaborating either, making silly idle faces, but TAMO's tutorial was a great help. I was lucky with Jason but not so much with poor Iker, he's really cuter in-game, believe me!

I didn't use sliders but I did have the AWESOME MOD the first time I made them, and the MASTER CONTROLLER when I fine-tuned them to share, so I don't know...

To install just drop in your SavedSims folder (documents > Electronic Arts > Sims 3 > SavedSims)

HRH Prince Henry of Magstadt

If you are in want of a new Monarch for your Kingdom seek no more, my good Ladies and Lords, His Royal Highness Prince Henry, of the ancient and illustrious house of Magstadt, is a most suitable candidate to the Throne. 

This noble Prince of the highest rank and merit has received a superlative education, being of Scholarly disposition, and his Vanity is compensated for by his many other virtues and qualities. 

But, aye, one fatal flaw has been passed on through generations of the House of Magstadt: licentiousness. It is to be hoped that the affairs of the State will keep this worthy Pince's mind off these worldly temptations.

Place in Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims Medieval > SavedSims

If you don't have a SavedSims folder you can either create it yourself or save a Sim to the bin in CAS and the game will generate it.

This Sim will show up in the CAS bin when starting a new game.

Dorm Daze

My entry for the "Dorm Daze" challenge at LSFI picked Charles Manner and Everett Blythe, I thought they had interesting personalities to do the neat-nerdy-guy/messy-creative-guy thing, since I figured Everett was the virtuoso Cello player (okay, it's a bass, but let's pretend) and Charles the aspiring photographer.

What I did was furnish the room previously with all the basic furniture, the same for both of them, and only add their decorative touches. Otherwise the room in itself it a bit drab (ugly linoleum floor, old paint, I think this dorm has been in use for generations of college students!). 

I think the poster next to the window on Everett's side is a message for Charles...

Mirror, mirror...

OK, I admit I just want to show off a little, this is my participation in the Mirror Mirror challenge at LivingSims forum (the challenge is to re-create a photo submitted by the mods and build the rest of the room around it). More pics here...

Grass pattern *UPDATE: file not working*

UPDATE: I got reports of this pattern not working anymore (thanks Gamer), I checked and it doesn't show up in my game either... strange, but it has probably something to do with how it was extracted and the game updates (?). Really sorry about that. EA included something similar in Pets or Generations in the "misc" category. Pralinesims has one at TSR, here, not sure if it's free though... I'll update further if I find more.

I'm leaving the download link active as for now if you still want to test if it works.


Just a small update, but maybe you'll find it useful. I extracted the grass pattern from Flabaliki's "Retaining Walls", so you can edit the floor on top of foundations for a terraced garden effect, or whatever else you can think of.

You can find it in "Misc." patterns. Package file only, sorry but I couldn't get the Sims3Pack to install properly.

There's probably more grass textures out there, but I like this one so I thought I's share it...
