I started to make sims for my custom world, without CC. Here's the first sim of hopefully many upcoming ones!



Stylist guys don't always need to be all fancypants rainbowlicious, so here's one kickass stylist for your salon! Ben cuts 'em hair edgy, cool and sexy, as well as styles your sims from head to toe with PURE AWESOMENESS (..plus strong chemicals and some serious scissor swingin').
Ben is a calm, friendly dude, who enjoys indie-music and aspires to live by styling. He works very long hours and travels around the city after styling-gigs. At this rate, he'll soon be the stylist Number One!



This sim contains NO CUSTOM CONTENT!

The default skintone used in the pictures is by TummyZa
Default eyes are by me



I have a slider hack installed, so if you don't have a slider hack installed and you change some of the facial features, they might reset.

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.

That's a good thing
Many users say the same thing about my sims, that they look somehow familiar.. I really don't know why, but I often realize at some point that a sim looks like some specific person from my life, even from way, way past.

Yeah, I've gone all CC free now since I need to make tons of sims for my world. It was a bit hard at first, but now it's fun. Before it felt like there were so many limitations with the game's own resources, but now it feels like there's so much potential that gets easily ignored.

Well I'm glad you enjoyed it! Ben always has some extra-strong bleach in case you'll need some brightening into your other days.

Hooray for no CC! Don't get me wrong I love CC as much as the next person, but I hate when sims are uploaded with cc, especially when they are saved sims, because I can't not install the cc. This saves me a huge headache of installing the sim, changing the custom bits and then taking the file back out to avoid cc that I did not install on purpose. so where was I? Oh yeah....THANK YOU!!!!!!! Please I hope you make more sims without the CC and upload them, because I love your sims

This DOES have CC.

Skin tone and fake eyes are CC.

But neither of those default replacements can fuck up your game when downloading a sim made with them, pretty much every other CC out there does so. In that case, I believe neither of those count. However, the slider hack itself kind of ruins the "no CC" feel for me.

I'll still download him. My Stylist sim needs some competition.

You are wrong. This file doesn't include any CC. The eyes and skin are default replacements (if you had bothered to read the text properly) and aren't anyhow included in the file, and therefore your game will replace them with whatever default replacements you have installed (or don't have installed).

I only have the slider hack INSTALLED. That doesn't mean it's been actually in use, or that his face will be f*cked up in your game. It is only mentioned in the text because it's a fact.

I understand that the CC is not included in the download, but without the default skin and eyes, they sim will NOT look the same. That means the CC will be needed, included in the file or not.

The point of making sims CC-less is the freedom of choosing. You don't HAVE to download anything, but you can choose and change everything, every bit, just as you like without downloading meshes first to make the sim work.
Now, what you are saying is simply pointless nitpicking. You don't HAVE to download this. Nor does anyone else.


Now please stick to commenting about the sim. Arguing over the NO CC factor is pointless because this is upload is considered as NO CC in the standards of this site.

Maybe in the 'standards of this site', but I along with many others say it has CC. But if you consider it no CC then thats your choice I guess.

Nice sim, overall.

Not exactly no CC, but nearly so. Maybe you should change the title a bit

I don't know of anyone who changes their default skins and eyes for one sim. The point is the face sculpt, and that will look essentially the same no matter what skins and eyes you use. Just use whatever defaults you've got already (whether they're these or others). The point is clearly to have a sim that's not chock full of extra stuff you have to download - you don't have to download anything to use this sim and still have him look nice.

So come on, guys, do we have to drag the entire thread into this? The answer is NO, so please stop, or I will come to your house and fill your underwear drawer with itching powder.
