quick update

i’m going to be very sporadic for the next couple weeks because of some diagnostic procedures coming up/yet another flare up of uveitis/general IRL health fuckery. so i apologize if i do not answer your ask or comment, but i will try to edit the face template post to include some answers to a couple questions i’ve been getting. please enjoy this cat gif for your troubles.

download face templates!

bonus download: ideal plantsim (26eelf) and pollination technician (28alien)!

credits: Fillyfoal, Lionspau, AlfredAskew, Uranium Z, Revolvertrooper and especially Azayawife, who not only provided the sim bases for like half of these templates but helped enormously with coding, testing, quality control and last-minute fixing assistance. (I love you, my little strawberry milkshake pop tart!)

WOO, face templates that have been in the works off and on for over a year, I shit you not. These are kind of a followers gift, in that there are close to 2500 of you (WHOA) and I feel as if gifts are in order to thank you guys for putting up with me!

Here is a gif of all the faces in BodyShop:

And HERE are large previews of the faces in game, with detailed credits and some notes on the features:

01Heart | 02Base | 03Erus | 04Emed | 05Cban | 06Cmas | 07Eafr | 08Easi | 09Cino | 10Este | 11Cmay | 12Eeas | 13Ecer | 14Cteu | 15Ceth | 16Eeng | 17Cara | 18Caus | 19Ccel | 20Cind | 21Cper | 22Cmed | 23Cpla | 24Cpol | 25Csla | 26Eelf | 27Etge | 28Alien

I should note, I couldn’t puzzle out what regions most of the templates were meant to represent, so my replacements aren’t intended to be an accurate reflection of any specific area or ethnicity. They’re pretty much just a grab-bag of features I like mashed together on various faces.

One thing I did try really hard to accomplish was minimizing the amount of game-influenced difference between ages and genders. Switching a face from F to M should not result in a thinner, sulkier mouth, hollower cheeks and smaller eyes across the board, that makes no sense. I could not, however, fix this hard-coded game glitch that (as far as I have seen) effects all replacement templates as well as the maxis default faces.

I THINK THAT’S EVERYTHING?? Let me know if I messed anything up. (I’m so full of painkillers right now that it is 99% likely that I have messed something up.)

edit: oh ok i did mess a couple things up in notes on the in-game previews. 25 should say that the mouth was edited with milkshape rather than the nose and 26 should say the sim’s name is moth, not moss.

having said that, here’s some clarity on a few things i’ve been asked:

hello!! it’s not weird at all i always get excited when i find people in my fandoms/communities who are agender or non-binary in general because we are rare and majestic unicorns and we should ALL BE FRIENDS FOREVER.

I wanted to tell you thank you for having so much stuff for darker skintones (the community, even in 2014, still lacks a lot of stuff for darker sims). ♥

Thank you anon!! I’m super glad you find my stuff useful! Yeah, it is definitely frustrating how much content (especially older stuff) only works on very pale skintones. I’m always looking to make more stuff that’s either usable on a wide range of skintones or specifically made for dark skin so if there’s anything in particular that you think the world needs more of, let me know! I don’t take requests as a general rule but I am always 100% open to suggestions on content for sims of color.

same, cat. same.

same, cat. same.

I’m sorry everyone, I had really hoped to finish taking preview pictures and get some of the content that I owe you uploaded today but I am really frustrated and discouraged by the behavior of a lot of people in this community right now and I just need a break, so I’ll be back in a few days.

My mom has that game!! :D I’ve played it some and I really like it, I’m just hilariously bad at platform games so I got frustrated and gave up for now after failing several missions in a row and not knowing how to redo them.

(Plus ma’s been playing it non-stop so it’s hard for anyone else to get near the controller …)

Man can I just say I’m super grateful that I have such nice anons that tell me about cool media featuring Native and/or trans characters. It’s really lovely. <3333

Tell no one, anon. The success of the mission depends on it.
