Ever make your own version of a sim you saw?

Have you ever seen a sim and searched for it in the gallery only to give up hope. And then try to make your own look-alike? Or seen an avatar sim, never find it, and make your own copycat version?

    nope
    I've made a few that resemble some others I had seen before though, but it has all been sheer coincidence so far

    Nah, most of my sims are inspired by an archetype but their appearances are original.

    The only sim I can recall getting sad over was the black vampire in the Vampires EP not existing in my game because he was hot and EA failed me by not making him a premade >:( :joy: I'm horrible at making look-alikes, but my main reason was that I'm bothered that I wasn't sure which of his abilities were canon in the trailer

    I haven't tried to look for him again since now my game is up to its eyes in vampires, but it still bothers me every time I think about it LOL.

    me too! you've just reminded me to go and try recreate him and the other trailer vampires lmao

    Other than him I remember trying to recreate the sims from the Seasons trailer/box art. I didn't do so well, but luckily for me someone else uploaded them to the gallery afterwards

    I've done the copycat thing once. I don't read sim stories very often, but was very much into one here on the forum. I found one of the sims in that story very fascinating. I do think I searched for him on the gallery (its been a couple of years, I have trouble remembering things from a couple days ago!) and couldn't find him. So I tried to recreate him as well as I could. Didn't give him the same name, of course, and he didn't really end up looking much like the original either :D . But he did end up being my fav sim ever <3

    When I first started playing I downloaded some sims from the gallery, but try not to download sims anymore since so many people don’t like you uploading their sims, but when I have put lots of time into skills, I update and load them to the gallery. So since I found that out I have tried not to download others sims. Once in awhile I will see clothes I like on a sim and traits that I don’t normally use, and use them. But, I am not good at recreating the actual sim.... lol
