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.

Note:
  • 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.

Installation:
  • 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.

OMG! I am not sure what is scarier/sadder -- the reality of what Michael has done to himself or the fact that the first Sims3 Sim of a real person I have seen that actually REALLY looked like the person is this one... good job.

wow, great job... makes me so sad though. I was watching videos of Michael when he was 10 years old, and he was so amazingly talented and cute.

Extract the sim file and put him in your SavedSims folder (Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 3 > SavedSims). If there isn't one, make one spelled exactly like that.

I really have no idea why. Are you playing the English version of the game? If not, maybe the folders are called something else? (I may just be pulling this out of my ass. )

Thank you! Yep, I'm definitely planning to make more. Not sure who at the moment... it's hard to capture the likeness in TS3. I think I lucked out on Michael because he has such a, uh, distinctive face.

Sad to say but the sim looks better than him. You did an extremely great job on him. Wow, is all I can say. First thing popped in my mind is what would him and the Paris sim children look like. I am not gonna have them mate, because that would be ugly. Thank you for such a unique sim, but I will have him live alone, for sure. Maybe next door to Mrs. Hobbart, that would be cool, now this is gonna be a weird neighborhood (Laughing uncontrollably). Oh, nice pic of him and child..........had me cracking up! Thank you for sharing your work.
