This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I originally started these for my Leonard Hofstadter (Big Bang Theory) sim -hence the title-, but since I was quite pleased with how they were turning out, I thought maybe giving them more usability would be a good idea They are available through teen to elder, and come in 10 colors. They do not morph (as I found that can get pretty wonky with some facial sculpts), but they will look good on almost any sim.

So, here's what you'll be getting:







Hope you enjoy these!

Polygon Counts:
Same for all ages and both genders: 740

Huge thanks to Fansee whose help in chat was priceless <3

Much love to all creators of all the little CC bits used on my sims

Great, I didn't know you knew how to do 3d models in The Sims as well as create sims. I know how to do 3d but just don't know how to put it in my game *yet* well great job!

a massive DITTO on Siofra's comment! I had a good ten minutes of fun guessing who your sim models were (well done!!) & even called my hubby in to give me his guesses...(we've got bit of a bet going about the gentleman with the snazzy hair & go-tee~would love verification? pretty please? I've got a week's worth of dish duty riding on this...)



EDIT: well, we were both wrong on him lol (checked your page & other offered downloads) :cheers:

Liv - D'oh Thank you for pointing that out, I shall fix it right now.

Lina - Thank you, so happy you like them!

greenMisa - You mean the hair on the female sim with black glasses? If so, it's here. I thought it was on Nouk's profile, but seems I was wrong. Is fixed now

sweetbaby160 - I love that you had fun guessing who is who! Who did you think Voltaire was? Am curious

BloodyScholastic - Hope they will
