Stereotypes: Lyle the grump

Well... That's not really true, is it? In fact it's pretty far from the truth.
Lyle is not exactly the life of the party. He's more likely to be found in a quiet corner, muttering and complaining about the lack of proper food/music/people/furniture or whatever else might be rubbing him the wrong way, that particular day. And a lot of things tend to do that. Actually, he seems prone to bickering and muttering and complaining and swearing. I once saw him pull a face at a kitten because it had the audacity to purr at him. Okay, so the guy's an old, nitpicky, grumpy fart. No heart of gold there, I'm afraid. It's not that he's a bad person, he's just .... difficult. Yes.
That said, he really knows how to swing a screwdriver, and he almost enjoys (gasp!) inventing stuff. It's probably for the best that he surrounds himself with automatons, since most people wouldn't be caught dead in his company for more than 10 minutes at a time.
You have been warned. If he moans too much, just send him to the inventor's bench. That usually shuts him up... for a while. Right, good luck!
Lyle is shown in the beautiful surroundings of the house "Inventor's Mansion", by the talented Crowkeeper here on MTS - http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=522851
Thanks @Crowkeeper, for inspiring me to finish this grump

All is basegame, except Lyle's outerwear, which is from Supernatural. Obviously the use of outerwear requires Seasons.
Sliders are only needed if you want to change him (and possibly if he has children), and they are not included in the download.

Key: - File was updated after upload was posted
1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the sim to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sim file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game, enter Create-a-Sim, and save a sim to the sim bin to create this folder, rather than doing so manually. After that you can close the game and put the .sim file in SavedSims
4. Once the .sim file is in SavedSims, you can load the game, and look for your sim in the premade sims bin in Create-a-Sim.
Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
