Cute Boys Set
"A pair of sliders useful when making cute/pretty male sims"

Both sliders are for Young Adult Males. I did not make these for female sims, as I feel CAS' defaults already look cute on them lol These were relatively quick and easy to make, so I might take requests, but only if I like the idea!

Hand Slider: Bone-Based; Makes Fingers and Thumb Thinner. Found under Head/General Panel as Hand Girth
Brow Slider: Geom-Based; Makes Forehead Flatter/Smoother. Found under Eyes/Eyebrow Panel as Brow Ridge


Brow Ridge Slider
One aspect of CAS which has *always* bothered me is the fact that the brow ridge could not be adjusted. This left all my male sims with a protruding skull mass that looked okay on most of my sims, but simply jacked on my pubertyfail! guys! I also noticed this slider works well on men of different ethnicities, as most do not have a brow ridge quite as prominent as Caucasian men/default CAS face. I'd make it a tad smaller for them, but anyways....

Side Profile:(Before and After; 0% to 100% Blending. See Thumbnails for Quarter-Profile Angles)

As you move the slider to the right, the brow ridge will become flatter and smoother. The shape of the forehead will also become rounder. I think it looks best at around 70% for cute boys, and maybe 100% for super cute boys! Ethnic men--around 5% smaller.

Example of Ideal Usage(Exhibit A; Key's Brow Ridge; 40% Intensity)

Now I'm not asking you to study anatomy, just be mindful when using this slider so that your sims look realistic enough to pass as human, because it *is* possible to do otherwise. Now, you'll notice that my model Key has a high brow ridge with a sharp rotation. These parameters are close enough to the right that his brow ridge is already pretty flat, so at this point, I *shouldn't* be using this slider to flatten his brow ridge, but to make it look soft and round. To accomplish this, I should only move the slider notch less than half way. Do Not Go Crazy With It.


Hand Slider
Now, I'm sure I'm not the *only* one, but the male hands have a tendency to look.....fat, cartoonish and FUNKY.
Girl, I Do Not Want >_> What I *do* want, are hands that are more tapered and human-like instead of pedo-stalker manacles
(Before and After; 0% to 100% Blending. See Thumbnails for Random Shots)

As you move the slider to the right, the hands gradually look cuter and smaller. Again, I also think this works well on the average man too as.....NOBODY HAS HANDS THIS FAT. For cuties, move it 70-100% to the right. For average guys, maybe 10%.

Example of Ideal Usage (Exhibit B; Taemin's Hands; 100% Intensity)

First thing, notice how limp and slender his wrist is, the boy is thin as a rail. DO NOT give your macho and obese sims these little hands, just don't, it'll look creepy and wrong. Now, I couldn't go OVERBOARD with flattening these hands since I wanted the animations to match; this is about the best one can do before some WEIRD clipping shows up on certain interactions, like the coin flipping one I wish bone-based sliders were as open-ended as their GEOM counterpart, but I'm rambling at this point...

Slider Limitation Issue
Getting these sliders to work might require a mod if you already have custom sliders installed! By default, the game allows only twenty sliders in commission at a given time, but, should you install either of the following mods you can have an unlimited amount:
"What's with the cute turtles?" I don't know >_<

1.) Delphy for his Small Editors
2.) CmarNYC for her Morphmaker
3.) Inge and Peter Jones for S3PE
4.) Wes Howe for his Q-Mesh Tool

Hope I didn't forget someone This mod wouldn't exist if they didn't lol

As a man, I take exception to these biologically impractical standards of attractiveness you're bandying about. Do you want the human race to die out?

And more to the point, these sliders could potentially be of use to female Sims, and I'm all for that.

^ Hmm....extinction doesn't sound too attractive

Ummm....does this have *anything* to do with making midgets? Sorry, that's just how it seems. If so, I could make a slider which scales the entire hand, too.

Question though, you say they're YA only- if you make the Sim look like they're going to when adult, then shrink em down to the age you want, will that bork the sliders on re-aging? (Sorry if it's a question I just missed earlier.)

Hmmm....If I'm correct, the forhead would simply mimic the standard Adult slope we already have, and when you switch back to YA stage, it would look like the slider-ed version. Test this out in CAS and let us know!

I think I'll go make the forehead slider for YA females (and the concave slider someone else mentioned)
