Maxis Match vs Alpha for CAS, your opinion?
I used to download a lot of Alpha cc, but it never really looked right in games. Someone in a FB sims group I'm in always posts pictures of the prettiest Maxis Match sims and she posted a master MM cc list. When I got my new laptop I decided to go Maxis Match only.
I'm maxis mix. Why have one when you can have both?

How do ppl get the women's head so thin??? My sims male head always end up wide
On touchpad I use two fingers on the forehead (not the hair) and pull apart as though I’m stretching clay, to widen. To narrow, I bring my fingers closer together.
Back on topic, I love some of both. I don’t like it when alpha hair gets really thin and wispy and you can see brushstrokes, but there are some alpha hairs I really adore. In my main family, most of the characters have MM, but a few have alpha hair.
I couldn’t live without alpha eyes. I love them so much.
Ooh Be Gah!! Whipna Choba-Dog? Whipna Choba-Dog!!
Alpha for me. It's the hair. I cannot stand that awful clay looking hair. It's definitely been getting better with some of the packs/expansions but most of it just looks terrible (imo). I could 100% go MM for everything else though and have been considering it for a while but the hair... ugh, puts me off every time
Maxis Match for life! I really love the cartoony aesthetics the sims has, as it gives me kind of nostalgia feels. I feel like a kid playing with dolls again and IDK, I really enjoy that haha! I was never really a fan of other games that had the same type of looks as Alpha CC ('think IMVU or secondlife and stuff), and I also was not a fan of TS3 (:O big shocker). There are some Alpha CC items that looks okay with MM, but it's very limited. If I would every download Alpha, it probably be decorational like posters or other wall decals! :)
I like Alpha because they look like real people.
