    I prefer maxis match, I'm minimal cc. It's just easier, and it's a little less "lore breaking" for me. I can't imagine having an alpha sim and then all hese maxis match premades walking around. Also, alpha hair is very high poly and really bogs down your game.

    Honestly, I never really left The Sims 3 behind when TS4 came out, This might be part of the reason why I'm Alpha CC all the way, At the same time though, I've never liked "clayifed" sims or hair. The first time I went into the CAS demo all I could say was "what the hell." I love it when my sims look realistic and polished. I just CANNOT do the original art style of TS4 and try to change it whenever possible. I don't want to live in a Barbie Dreamhouse world, I want real life. Sorry not sorry MM Simmers!

    I use both. In my next game, i plan to delete all premades and make my own. I'll probably use alpha only in that save.

    I'm a n00b here but not to the game. I am more inclined toward MM. Alpha just seems like an "airbrushed" magazine cover vs. a non-edited one. *shrugs*

    I really dislike mm cc, I agree it looks bad quality for the most part. Also it’s annoying that people can say how ugly alpha is but if you say that about mm they gets really defensive.

    truly i LOVE both. Maxis Match fits better into the game, is less laggy and works WAAAY better with EAs stuff. Lets say you were making a sims and you use MM but you love some jeans from get together or something, the styles dont clash BUT if you had this whole alpha get up then it would be out of place to use those jeans. Or your MM sims is taking a jog and Nancy Landgrab walks by. You would match! BUT if your Alpha sims walks by Eliza Pancakes, sis looks to different. I love the way alpha looks but it isnt great for game play. Alpha also makes it difficult for sims to see CC eye colors and skintones that are alpha. Genetics are harder to get across with alpha. Alpha makes your sims look alot more harsh and MM is more soft and calm, but can be harsh. Either way CC is great for people who cant afford packs. and its great for those who can!

    I mix and match, but try to minimize cc. I only use MM hair styles and skin Overlays, not Full coverage skin. I’m incredibly critical about any cc.
    The few bits of realistic clothing I have in game, need to be of high quality in terms of mesh, texture and specular map, in order to sustain the game’s general aesthetics. I only go for the content of select artists who can pull this of.

    I've always used both. When I started out, I leaned toward Alpha, then over time my preferences became more equal, and now I find that I'm actually preferring Maxis Match. But I'll probably continue using both forever.

    I used to hate alpha and then I got my sims 3D lashes and maxis match just doesn't look right with it anymore. It's the gateway drug to Alpha ha ha ha.

    And oh my god so worth it I love it now :D. I still have my cartoon eyes and stuff but I have alpha hair and eyelashes and makeup. I love it :D.

    I prefer Alpha. They are so beautifully designed. <3 And those that don't look good in the game, I just delete them.

    Depends on your taste @LeeShin. You can play with both style in the same time , we calls this Maxis-mix.

    I am maxis mix with a preference for maxis-match, ts2 and ts3 to ts4 eaxis conversions or alpha meshes that looks like maxis native sims 4 meshes. (only for the sims 4)
