Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Note: This Sim was made back when custom content was virtually non-existent so you can probably find a better version of MJ somewhere. Run along, grasshopper.

Hopefully this man needs no introduction. It's the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson. Although lately he's known more for his personal troubles and legal battles, it's hard to deny that he had a large impact in music and pop culture. Plus, I'm sure he'll make a very interesting addition to your game. Wouldn't you just love to have Michael Jackson roaming around your neighbourhood? Although he's gone now, maybe he can live on in your virtual world.

The many faces of Michael Jackson! His jaw doesn't look so wide in those pictures but I think it's just the angle; he looks quite dashing in CAS. For maximum hilarity, play him with these traits: Virtuoso, Family-Oriented, Childish, Insane and Party Animal. I had to include Party Animal in there to get the Rock Star lifetime wish.

Have fun! Here he is at Riverview cooing over a child.

  • This Sim requires a slider hack!
  • Do not claim as your own and/or upload to the Exchange.
  • I do not take requests. The sliders you see in your game are basically all I use, so if you really really want Mr. Emo Boy From Obscure Band in your game, you're just as capable of creating him yourself.

  • Extract the .sim file from the rar. Place in My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims. Look for him in the premade sim bin in Create a Sim under the Adult category.

Additional Credits:
  • HystericalParoxysm for the skin replacements
  • aikea guinea for the eyes
  • Everyone who gave me feedback while he was a work in progress!

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

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.

I'm pretty sure this will work on OSX... I haven't tried it yet, but it looks like this is what you need to do:
1. Expand the .RAR
2. Place the file "a89a061923d576864c315c500abf037d.sim" into the SavedSims folder, which can be found at Documents>Electronic Arts>The Sims 3>Saved Sims

Does that help?

I completely agree.

If you don't have anything nice to say, then shut up and don't say anything. I mean the point of this thread/upload is for people to download and enjoy him, not be rediculed. I think negative comments should be removed on all uploads. that's what the forums are for.

Please list the expantion packs/stuff packs needed for your downloads and give credit where it's due. It does make a difference.

Sorry but it looks nothing like him, and that scene with the child looks garishly creepy. The face just looks wrong, can't put my tongue on it but it looks wrong. Maybe too long?

Wow this was so freaking long ago.

Just coming back to remind everybody how freaking ironic it was that this person uploaded this literally like two days before he died, and before everyone was like "HAHA HE'S COOING AT CHILDREN" and afterwards everyone suddenly became more respectful. xP Kind of funny in hindsight.

Again, good job, and RIP, I guess :]

Post death:
"Omg! Michael Jackson is dead! Dx"
"Nooes! RIP Michael!"
"omfgnoooo! The world is OVER!"

The respect you're giving him now is what he deserved while he was still around to receive it. You're all a little late, don't you think?

That's spot on. I respected him before, and I still do....and some people still gripe about him. :/ give it a rest, nay-sayers!
