    • For TS1 my main families were Japanese as I played an anime that I was watching way back then. Of course, then my Japanese sims would give birth to blond white kids... that was always funny.
    • For TS2 my main families are Black, White, Ethnic Jewish/Romanian and my hood sims are a mix of Black, White, Latino, Japanese, Pacific Islander, and Greek. (I play with empty hood templates and create all of my sims myself)
    • For TS2 I play Black, White, Japanese, Selvadoradian (Hispanic-esque?), and European sims. I haven't played the Islanders yet.

    I don't know if it's just my game, but in TS4 my world sims always generate as Asian or they generate as white, brown, black with a common Japanese name and surname... is this normal? I don't like that and tend to delete a lot of sims.

    I play everyone! I honestly randomize Sims a lot to get a base and then change the details but obviously they've been given random skin tones, etc.

    I never play occult and hardly ever play elders or teens (too many limitations for these two age groups) but everything else is very balanced, no matter if I look at age, gender, race, personality... well, I suppose I don't play evil Sims very often. I like to be able to stand my creations. :D

    I do create different sims of race because I find this pretty interesting, I like very much genetics and how it tends to make people beautiful in their ways, very unique in our planet, our world, we are so lucky to be who we are, how diverse we are ! That's so fascinating to me. It is very hard, I am far to succeed but I am proud of what I have done. And kudo if I contribute to break prejudices. This is that I perfection of the Human Race , the Genetic Lottery that made us so PERFECT , so DIFFERENT we want to pay tribute in my sims games. Far from the lies of the medias and fashion industry/modeling industries that tells X or Y "races" or "people" is ugly to be not represented, or should not be represented in games too I do not understand this silly ban in our societies.We are of course different cultures but we are so much in common if we dig down.
    All my sims no matter how they are made, are aliens without powers most of them. A group of them are occults and some are fully aliens.
    That is about the "races" part. I really hate the Communautarism we are all human with the same life aspirations. So I do not label myself here by my colourskin . This is NOT define me !

    Now about sexualities all are hetero or cold traits by default but if they are LGTBQ as I see some of my supposed heteros turned into gays in my ts4 (or in TS3 or TS2 the other games I play) I notice that, I rather discovered this for myself, I let them be what they want by themselves. I do force them to stay what I choose for them, if they can change and be what they want, I rather like this.

    My sims don't have races. They're sims, and not humans.
    Whatever culture they have in their game that may or may not have been based off RL culture ( lookin' at you WA ) is sim culture and not at all indicative of anything in my real world.
    My sims come in all shapes and sizes and all colours. I play black & white sims, purple, orange, brown, blue and every other rainbow colour. I have regular sims, witches, fairies, aliens, plantsims, ghosts and werewolves.

    That is what I love so much about this game. I can virtually create any type of little sim person I like, and play out any kind of story for them <3

    I branch out occasionally, but looking back over my history I mostly play gay, white men like me.

    I can't play Self-Sims (though I have made them on occasion). It just feels creepy.

    Wow this is a good question!

    I'm a white female and in my very early 30's and I play white, female sims more but a few Chinese and Japanese sims have popped up from time to time. I would love to make a darker skinned sim but the darker skin tones just don't seem right (as a lot of other simmers have been saying) so hopefully, when the skins have been updated I will be able to do more darker skinned sim.

    I fail so bad at making male sims, they just never look the way I want them too but I will keep trying to make it work!

    I'm a Caucasian female from Scandinavia and 40 yrs old. I play premades only and always males, save for my transwoman. Sims 4 women are a different breed than me, can't relate to them. I also don't do regular family play and always have aging off. My Sims all have darker skintones and hair - the opposite of how I look in real life. My husband has darker skin and hair than me as well.

    I'm a white female and I usually just randomize sims and tweak them with different hair and makeup. I hardly ever change facial features or anything like that. Currently in my game I have 2 black females, a white family of 5, an elderly white couple, and a mixed (one white male/one dark male) gay couple. They all pretty much act exactly the same to me, so I don't spend too much time trying to match looks with personality.

    White female age 24 here. Pretty much everything. I don’t have a preference tbh. Making very different sims is most interesting to me.

    I am a black lesbian and I tend to primarily play with black sims, mostly gay males or lesbians. My couples, however, tend to be mixed.

    I don't play as anyone. I play a variety of different sims of various hues, genders, ages, and species.

    You shoulda been a fly-on-the-wall when my wife went to "Japanese" class on first day roll-call. Calls out my Japanese last name. My wife, a caucasian woman stands up. Teacher was hella confused. :mrgreen:

    I never have sims of different races, like human races. I wouldn't know the difference anyway, I mean what makes a sim south-east asian, or chinese or japanese? Or a black sim, is it from Uganda, South-Africa or New York? Like when I make-over randoms. I can't tell where in our world the sim hails from. Same with names, sometimes I Google last names so I at least will know the general area of its origin, then I check if the sims first name is also common in that area, and if their skin tone match somewhat. Just because it doesn't feel right for a black person to have an asian name. Or the other way around. or a caucasian person with an Islander name. The randomizer is really out of whack.

    I avoid the darkest tones, especially for females, if I want them to have make-up on. If I can't find anything that looks good, I'll leave them without. I'm pretty pale myself, but there are many of the palest tones I avoid too. I tend to create sims with light tan or darker skin. I'm not putting a label on them and deciding what nationality they are, they're sims not humans.

    For genders, I have a lot of male sims, but the last year or so more females have been created in my game. Still, I think the majority are male. I tend to grab the odd random or premade too, of both genders. Some are straight, some gay/lesbian. That's the extent of my LGBTQ+ play, I don't know much about other types. I'm a white Scandinavian, 50+ straight woman. I play with what I feel like at the moment.

    I purposely make multicultural families. I started my legacy family with an Irish dad and Jewish mom. Their kids married a Chinese woman, a black woman (Octavia Moon), and a Mediterranean mermaid. Some of the grandkids married middle Eastern fashion designer (Rohan from DU) a blond British lawyer, a Russian spy, and a Haitian musician. Also, Scorpia from She-Ra is in my legacy family as my ace/aro's platonic life pal.
    My Sims are all possible genders and sexual orientations.

    I usually find myself making the same generic family-oriented white women. 😂
