Thanks everyone for the concern and sorry for the worry ? its been a weird time and being a lone parent through the restrictions is kinda like being a captive in a mental prison or something like that ? having so much time indoors but zero space or privacy made me a bit crazy ? my brain is constantly thinking of things to do and organise, on and offline ? 

My game needs to go online and patch a few versions so I need to hunt for the script updates *yawn* and find out whether cc Windows are fixed yet? ?

It's been nice to have a bit of freedom again and being spoilt for ideas thanks to everyone's content ??

I got a lot of things to work on but I been agonising over the old stuff too, like the stiffer or weirdly bent ones and also thinking about making things in stages where I can ? 

From pic 5 onwards is a re-imagining of the first ever animation I did which was a sitting masturbation but as a 4 stage thing ?

Which slider did you end up using?

I used Luumia's neck height slider mod. The reason why is because I want to adjust my sim's feet size. The other height slider doesn't let me do that because adjusting feet size also adjusts sim height. ?

I'm glad you think so ? I based her height and body build off of my classmate and her face is a combination of my friend (most facial features like nose, eyebrow, chin shape) and me (eyes)

So I'm hoping this time, I'll have the patience to make this a multi-generational playthrough.  I took the time to build on every vacant lot, and seeded lots of library sims.  Mulder and Scully from the X-Files even have a house somewhere...

 

I started with Aden Boswell:

 

322025365_TS4_x642020-10-0202-32-04.png.bb4ac6fa256a7f5555c52e25513b2100.png

 

He was supposed to find himself "A" girlfriend.  No harem like with the other playthrough.  Whoever he hooked up with first, that's who it's going to be.  Aden immediately found a loophole in that plan, by hooking up with P. Faba.  I just told him to do a friendly introduction, remembered that the twins needed to be given Incest and Polyamorous and a maxed relationship, and while I was finding Q. to finish doing that, Aden and P. went downstairs together.

Okay, well, the Faba girls are a package deal who refuse to be split up.  This also made me make some refinements to their appearance- a proper milky-white skin, and a full-body tattoo.  Also now I understand the L. Faba reference, and I figured it doesn't make as much sense for the twins to go by just an initial.  So now they are Paige and Quinn.  P is for purple, I have to remind myself that too...

"So L. is your great-grandmother in another timeline, and Quinn is actually your clone..."

"Wait, what?"

The twins may look like they're made of fine porcelain, but as Aden found out they are hardly cold, inflexible, or fragile...

As I mentioned, I wanted to do something a little different, and make the sims resemble their ethnic backgrounds more than they do in the comics / cartoons / movies. That has always been incredibly hard for me to do, because once I make the sim resemble their character and start adding in ethnic characteristics, it starts looking different from how the character is "supposed" to look and starts looking "wrong". New plan: I decided to make sims that resembled the characters' ethnicity, then mould them to resemble the character. Hopefully, keeping a mixture of both. In some cases, I went for what I thought the character should look like, more than the comic representation.

 

@snowdog04 @mrrakkonn Great advice from both of you, but I actually already made the sims about 2 months ago. RL has just been keeping me too busy to finish them. I wanted to post them when they were finished and ready to share in the Downloads section. For the record, I used both your methods. For each ethnicity I Google image searched: "pretty (or sexy) ______ women". I then spent hours viewing pics until I saw the same genetic features in all of them. For Rahne, I came up with an image in my head, and the following day I made her perfectly to that image. She does not resemble any real person (that I know of), nor the comic representation. For other characters, such as Jean Grey, I used a real life model that looked similar, then moulded it towards the comics, so that the end result landed somewhere in the middle. Other characters, like Dani, looked very different from the models, and there was no happy medium, so I went a lot closer to the comics. I tried to use a real model for Kitty's English ethnicity (I'm assuming she has an English background, but it was never specified nor implied). She kept looking a lot like Kate Beckinsale. Not that that's a bad thing, but I wanted Katherine Pryde, not Katherin Beckinsale. Basically, I'm combining an authentic ethnic look (either in general or from a specific model), the comic book representation, and my own personal preferences.

 

Example: The first pic is a roughly 50-50 mix between a real-life model, and comic representation. The second pic has my own preferences / interpretation added.

I'll provide character reference pics when I show each individually, but don't be surprised if they look nothing alike. For now I just want to concentrate on the ethnic representation (which I feel is inadequately portrayed in the comic books).

No pics of Kitty. I'm not satisfied with her yet, and am going to start over from scratch.

Damn, this thread's really been blowing up lately! There's a lot of stuff for me to reply to, so buckle up.

@R-Lo Nice to see you back! I hope your life hasn't been too hectic lately. Your sims are gorgeous as always, especially that mermaid girl. She sorta reminds me of my Ivy for some reason. Maybe the hair and pale skin?

@JMTe Your short chick is really cute!

@Mariana Soprano Always good to see you posting.

@2cool4u_1 When it comes to making racially diverse sims, I find that it helps to look at real people of whatever group you're trying to make. A basic understanding of racial coding and common geographical phenotypes can help as well because people tend to have a kind of "default person" for every racial/ethnic group. The eyes, cheeks, nose, and lips tend to be the biggest flags for someone being of a certain group. TS4 is actually pretty good with the presets in this regard (except for the skin tones and afro-textured hairs, oof) since each preset has its own unique shading and starting shape.

If you like using alpha CC, make sure you also use stuff made by black content creators, because I've noticed that black simmers tend to make better looking and more accurate black sims than non-black simmers. That shouldn't really be surprising since, ya know, they're black. This same rule applies to content creators of other ethnic groups as well. @snowdog04 and @mrrakkonn gave you some good advice as well.

As for making sims based on comic book characters or cartoons, I usually just note the character's key features and try my best to translate that into the game. I'll leave an example in the spoiler:

Spoiler

Let's use Becca Hendicks (lol) from Summertime Saga as an example.

Becca.png.f22f330c17f55f27c6b777762084c5d7.png

First, I'd make a few mental notes of things that really define her appearance.

  • Wavy, shoulder-length red hair
  • Slightly arched eyebrows of medium thickness
  • Big green eyes
  • Upturned nose with a concave bridge
  • Freckles
  • Big, plump lips
  • Average feminine frame
  • Big boobs
  • Somewhat wide hips
  • A severe case of Resting Bitch Face

With this in mind, I'd then go into CAS and pick the presets which best translates these features into the game. After making some adjustments and adding some clothes, we have this:

167848401_10-02-20_74334PM.png.cd49ef9125ef50d563c9ddfb2c2d052d.png1192539157_10-02-20_74353PM.png.95e7dd67aa4573b4e411ee700def6769.png132013582_10-02-20_74409PM.png.de48c3912ab5684bcea801cd25e59c18.png

 

Keep in mind that this was made fairly quickly and with almost no CC. In retrospect, I probably should've lowered her cheekbones a bit.

All that aside, it's up to you how you put together your sims. I'd say you've got the cartoony look down.

@Abandoner Your sims are beautiful as always.

@Juliette Tango I'm really liking the consistent content from you!

 

Okay, I think I addressed everyone. Now then, I finished redoing the Partihaus household! I'll upload their full lookbooks in my PBW 2.0 thread, but I'll leave you guys with this:

I'm pretty happy with how she looks, though I think if I hadn't already done one now, I'd have based her on this woman. Might consider giving her a similar small tattoo on her wrist like you can see in the video thumbnail there.

Even though the hairstyle is probably considered somewhat old-fashioned, it always looks awesome to me. The actress in the videoclip is Ana de Armas who was also one of the best parts of the recent Blade Runner movie.

Sorry everyone. This is off-topic, but in these times, I'm going to say it anyway. When I said I was glad R-Lo was back, I meant taking part and sharing with us. She never left. She was checking in regularly, and supporting all of us with "likes". For those who don't know, if you hover over a person's profile pic (or name in a tag or quote), it will tell you the last time they've signed into LL (unless they set it to private). Clicking on the number of "likes" given, will tell you who gave them. This way you can check on your friends who have not been posting, to make sure they're okay. ....And yes, I have been stalking all of you. ?

 

This is a chart of the average percentage of FLU cases that result in death during Flu season. It reflects how potent / deadly the flu virus becomes during those months. It is not known for sure, but experts are expecting CORONA virus to behave similarly in terms of how potent the virus is during these months. We (in North America) started getting cases in March, when the virus was already dying down, and that was starting with zero cases. We completely missed the "bad" part. I think (& hope) your friends won't mind you checking their well-being over the next few months, given the circumstances.

Very nice!  She really looks like the source material, except fixed to actually look Japanese.  With a name like Elizabeth Braddock, I assume she's supposed to be half American/British?  I grew up in a hardcore Christian household that was totally paranoid of all pop culture, so what I know of the X-Men comes from the couple of movies I've seen.

I saw some attempts of Kendall Jenner on the sims resource. I wasn't too impressed. So I spent a few hours having a good go at making my own version of her. She's a complete airhead but she's stunning in real life. I f*cked up my reshade settings so this was Massively overly saturated beforehand. I think she needs some ? scenes lol. 

PSX_20201004_034110.jpg

@MrSimur She looks great, even with the extra saturation. Feel free to share any of those wet scenes. ?☂️

 

@mrrakkonn Love the mood / lighting in those pics!

 

@snowdog04 An excellent guess on her [Betsy's] origin. Early in Betsy's career, there was a Japanese ninja going by Kwannon (real name unknown). During combat Kwannon fell from an ocean cliff, leaving her brain-dead. Soon after, Betsy was found washed up on shore of an island belonging to The Hand (bad guys). Kwannon's lover sought the help of Spiral (a trickster and lover of mischief) who said she could help. Using her magic and alien tech, Spiral tapped into Betsy's powers (telepathy) to restore Kwannon's mind. However, Spiral (intentionally) switched their bodies in the process. In short, Betsy is originally British, but her body is Japanese. Here's a pic of her original appearance, with her twin brother Brian (aka Captain Britain). Her natural hair color is blonde, but she dyes it purple.
