    Keanu and River are now adults and have lost the freshness of youth but, with the help of mouth height sliders for life stages other than YA, they still look good :) I woke them in the middle of the night to take a pic of them with Kier, now a teen :)

    A close look at the brothers so you can see how different they are :)

    Mason finally aged up! Happy birthday kid!
    (my sound on my computer went loco so I had to save and quit. One more day until Conner ages up and Mom and Dad want another kid!)

    @HillyBeth Congrats on the birth of Gillian-Rose :)
    Who would you say Conner looks like? It looks to me that he favours his mother a bit.

    A good mix of both. Mom's hair, dad's eyes. They'll have two more kids after Gilly ages up.

    Are you referring to hair and eye colour? I am only interested in slider positions as hair and eye colour (without mods) are subject to frequent random mutation, hence those god awful violet eyes and baby poo green hair that often appears :#

    @Breazona Reece and Eden are very good looking :)
    Eden seems to mostly favour her mother but it looks like Reece got his dad's nose (the best I can tell without a close up of Aleksei. Do you have a close up of Aleksei so I can see his eye shape?

    Here's Juliette...

    And Justin...

    And their son Luka.

    You're definitely right about pudding sims... the kids always end up clones of them. Any ideas how I could make Luka look like Juliette a little?

    @rubyskywalker Luka definitely looks like dad. Dad, however, doesn't look pudding. In fact Juliette looks more pudding than him. Pudding refers to default, game-generated sims with all sliders set to zero. I could be wrong, but Juliette looks like she would have way more zero sliders than Justin.

    I was actually, but now that I think about it, the boys favor their father as far as face sliders go. Although I won't really know about Mason for one more sim-day.

    @Mikezumi Kinda funny... although I will admit I didn't do much tweaking to Juliette when I created her, as I thought she looked lovely. Justin is one of the townspeople in Twinbrook... all I changed was his hairstyle.

    @rubyskywalker I am interested in sim genetics and do not judge other people's sims on their looks. If you are happy with Juliette that is all that counts. I was just explaining what pudding means and that Juliette has mostly zero sliders from what I can see.
    I saw Justin in another thread and then googled him and saw he was a Twinbrook resident.

    I decided to load up even though it was after midnight when I loaded up. Lol! Here is a teenage Mason William Burkett!
    Victoria is pregnant again, but this time I gave *only her* fertility treatment.

    @Mikezumi Thanks! I might move them to a new town, but I'm not sure yet.

    Looks mostly like Keanu. Definitely not bad. I need to get some zoom mod I guess.

    I gave in and let Marcus and Jamie have another daughter. They went to the hospital in Oasis Landing and let one be made. You pick the parents (both have to be present), gender, hair and eye color, pay 5000 simoleons, and you can leave the hospital with the new baby.

    Given Jamie isn't the youngest anymore (she should have at least another 100 days though), I sped a little bit through the baby and toddler phases. Here's Diana as toddler.

    And here she is as a child.

    Sorry for not taking images in the stylist. It's always a bit risky to enter the stylist in that particular game, and although I changed the hair here (I'm not even sure whether it's an improvement or not), I simply forgot to take a pic there. Let's see if Diana will lose that puffy face.

    Next up will be the birthday of Lucas. Finally.
  • MikezumiMikezumi Posts: 47,366 Member
    @Turjan Thanks :) Here's the link to the CAS Zoom Mod. If you have trouble with CAS you mightn't have much use for it but I love being able to zoom in real close when I am making sims.

    Congrats on the new baby :) It's hard for me to see Diana's face. Who does she look like?

    I'd say a mix of both, if I look at the eyes. I have no idea where the chin comes from. I haven't looked at her aged up yet, as the game gets really flaky when I do that. I can try next time the family is somewhere else than SV.
  • MikezumiMikezumi Posts: 47,366 Member
    Looking forward to seeing her when she is a teen, @Turjan :)
    It will be much easier to see for myself then.
  • TurjanTurjan Posts: 252 Member
    OK, here are some not that lousy pics instead. The second one is less overexposed.

    Lucas had his birthday, too.

    A more neutral expression (well, Jamie not so much :smile: ):

    The game insists on that haircut, I guess. It's the same he got as child and as teen. Paul is due in 4 days, and he'll probably end up bald, if this is an indicator.
    Anyway, I like the subtle changes around the eyes.

    I'll have to look for some better custom hair. Some of his clothes are also off (his sleepwear is hilarious). I'll wait for Paul's birthday and send them to university, where it's probably easier to go into the stylist for me. The twins are due a week after Paul.
  • MikezumiMikezumi Posts: 47,366 Member
    @Turjan That's much better! I can see dad in Diana but, of course, children's faces can be tricky. Not sure why it's more obvious in toddlers than in the child stage! :|
    Lucas is very handsome! I can see Marcus in both of them :)
    I see two of the kids got the preset violet eyes. I use the Consort Eye Colour mod to stop sims from getting random eye colours.
    Changing their hair/outfits at uni is a good idea. I find my CAS, although it doesn't crash, gets very sluggish when a save has been going for a while but works well when they are at uni or traveling.

    Thanks. Yes, university and the vacation worlds don't have NRAAS SP activated and a lot less people, which means they run better for me.

    Regarding eye colors, I'm a bit in a pickle, because I can't distinguish blue from violet (or green from brown). I guess it's my fault when Diana has violet eyes, because I was free to choose the eye color at the hospital where she was made. I should try the consort mod, which should eliminate any guesswork from my side. I'm not sure whether I have it installed - I know I have one for hair color, although I haven't used it yet.
    Does Lucas also have violet eyes?

    Given Diana is engineered, I'm not overly concerned about the color, except that violet isn't exactly a natural eye color. I don't even know what eye color the parents have. If both have brown eyes, children with any other type of color would be okay, because brown is dominant.
