Hidden Gems: NPC Makeovers

TinySpaceFoxTinySpaceFox Posts: 861 Member
They're the unsung heroes who deliver pizzas, fix showers, and wrangle burglars. I thought it was high time the service Sims (well, the better-looking ones, to be completely honest) got their moment in the spotlight.

In other words, I was bored. And I thought I needed to practise my makeover skills, particularly with the girls.

Before I start, I should mention a few things.
Firstly, all the Sims I make over will be aged down (or up) to Young Adult.
Secondly, I'm challenging myself to tweak these Sims as little as possible - while I want to bring out their full potential, I also want them to remain recognisable. So, most of these Sims will simply have different hair, plus some small adjustments to the sliders for their face shape, cheeks, and/or nose.
Thirdly, while I do use a CC skin (Kurasoberina's Primer Ultra HD) and CC hair, I don't use any custom sliders apart from one that adjusts brow thickness.
Finally, feedback is welcome on any of my makeovers :)

Enough talk, let's get down to business - we're starting off close to home with these cutie service Sims from Sunset Valley :)

    @TinySpaceFox I don't really pay attention to NPCs but I am familiar with Tuesday. I have seen Torgo's name in map view but never went in for a close look. I must say, he looked much better than I expected! I am a firm believer in keeping premades recognizable when making over. If a sim needs to be changed a lot to make them presentable they may as well be renamed as well!
    You did a great job! :)

    Wow! They look super. I'm not familiar with any of them, so not sure what they looked like before, but you did a great job and I'd put Jake and Torgo in my game any day! I need more guys since @CravenLestat has kept me supplied with the ladies lately. :wink:

    Thank you @Mikezumi and @bekkasan for the wonderful comments! I’m glad to see you enjoyed my makeovers :>

    I think this weekend I’ll get started on the service Sims of Appaloosa Plains, the second town I ever got. I’m really looking forward to it!

    Kale Parrott of Appaloosa Plains is probably my all time favourite NPC. Total opposite of his lame cheating brother Kanoa.

    Love your makeovers, especially Tuesday! They look great!

    @TinySpaceFox Yay! Your version looks great :) as well as all your other sims of course. I forgot about Benedict, he's always a pleasant surprise on the off chance my sims get a pizza.

    These are some great-looking sims! Any chance you would upload them to the exchange or somewhere else? I am particularly hopeless at making or finding male sims that don't look like potatoes or ultra-feminine.
  • MikezumiMikezumi Posts: 43,867 Member
    The Appaloosa Plains sims look great! Is that the world that comes with Pets?
  • TinySpaceFoxTinySpaceFox Posts: 861 Member
    @A785 I'm glad you like my makeovers! :) I'd love to upload them, though they do use quite a bit of CC so it may not be on the exchange. Perhaps SimFileShare or Dropbox.

    @Mikezumi Thanks, I'm happy to hear you like them :> Yep, Appaloosa Plains is the town from Pets.

    Anyway, I must apologise for not updating in so long, I've been busy with real-world stuff. I just had a big test today. It went well, thankfully, and I feel like a huge weight has just been lifted off my chest :tongue: But I won't be getting back into Simming until next Wednesday at least, because I have one more paper (grrrr....)

    I think the next town I'll tackle will be Riverview :>

    Riverview, eh? That's where my Larkinson family is! The wife, Fawn, was from the "Into the Future" expansion, but the boys' girlfriends were regular Sims from the town. I've changed some makeup and outfits for the 3 but they were quite pretty to begin with so keep an eye out!
    Names: Fawn Lacey(from the future(original Oasis Landing, not the changed ones), now a Larkinson and married to my starting sim), Kara Avril from Riverview, and Shantel Stringer also from Riverview.

    Agnes Crumplebottom from Sunset Valley... after "bumping" into Vladimir. (I had this crazy idea to move the vampires into Sunset Valley, because reasons.)

    @TinySpaceFox I'm loving Avery Sage... Totally fits her job as burgular but she also looks gorgeous. Have to try this sometime!
    An average simmer wasting her life away
    --just kidding, will find a photo of my fave sim soon--
