Resource FAQ (updated)


I've been getting a lot of questions concerning my TS3 sims and what custom content I use on them, so I thought I'd write about them here. Besides searching TSR for fun things regularily, I love going on CC hunts on Asian blogs especially, just clicking myself from one to another and never leave a link unexplored - unless they seem shady obviously. My favourites are Lemonleaf, Tifa and Subaxi.

 

1) SKINTONES: I currently use Ephemera's v2.2 face defaults. My female bodies are EA, as I haven't found a decent substitute that wouldn't have a terrible Pamela Anderson cleavage. Not a fan of boobs up in the throat. The other skintone I use is Subaxi's latest custom Asian skintone for females.

 

2) I EDIT MY PREVIEW PICTURES: I love fooling around in Photoshop, which accounts to how smooth the sims look quite a bit. Do note though, I always leave the downloadable item fully untouched, so everyone'll know what they get.

 

3) MY SIMS: So far I haven't uploaded any of them, but most likely will when I have enough time and interest to strip them of custom content. When making them, I use basically every custom slider I've found. I personally use AwesomeMod with the slider min-max scale set to 5x, but of course, any other core mod should do the trick. I spend quite a bit of time on each face I make, tweaking things to be exactly as I want them, and my goal is to make their features at least remotely realistic and unique.

 

4) CUSTOM CONTENT IN MY PREVIEWS: I mostly use hairs by Newsea, Peggy, Raon and Ulker. I make edits of the textures for personal use on most of them, like smoothening and adding shine. These will unlikely be released since they are pay meshes and included in the edits. Besides our wonderful TSR Artists, I use content by several others as well: I suggest keeping an eye on My Sims 3 Blog for example, there are good finds posted there.

 

If you have any other questions, go ahead and ask. I'll update this entry with the answers to the best of my ability. :)
