    I went on a downloading spree this weekend. I wanted to add more characters to my game so I'd have more neighborhood stories interactions. I didn't want to just make families because I probably wouldn't immediately recognize them out and about since I don't actually play any other families.

    I added Andy Griffith and his family, Barney, Aunt Bee and Opie. The Friends cast, Happy Days, The Walton's, The Ingalls from Little House, The Brady family, and The Flintstones, Fred and Wilma and Barney and Betty.

    Right now they're all on empty lots so tonight I'll download suitable homes for them all.
    Don't forget to smile today. 🌞

    I tried to make Garfield and Jon Arbuckle (based on the comic strips, not the movies). Odie and Liz are also part of the household.

    Yes, almost always. That's part of the fun for me. Trying to create Sims characters that mimic popular fictional characters, and then turn them loose to see what they will do.

    Call me cringy, but I have a save file going where I'm trying to have every household be various Friday Night Funkin' characters.

    I used to do that a lot. MLP characters, LoZ characters, and some Disney characters. Nowadays I make my own sims, but sometimes they're inspired by my favorite characters from non-Sims fictional media.

    I add popular characters all the time, some of my mains are Mario ones.

    Sister did make Link and I think she did a good job with it.

    I always have in every gen of the game. Many are repeats. I don't usually play their households very much, I just never care about random generated townies; by making characters I like, I have townies I will have an interest in. The households I actually play are my own made up characters, unless something fun just "fits." Like in Sims 3 I played The Winchesters as my ghost hunters cause it just fit. Currently I have Selena Meyer (from Veep) in my game to play the Politician career.

    Typically no, but I have downloaded some fandom characters. Not celebrities, playing them feels creepy.
    The Sims has currently lost its identity. Bring it back for TS5

    Too bad, I am going to have to copy you though and attempt to make them. Garfield is my favorite comic of all time. I can't believe I never thought of putting them in my game.

    I don't do celebrities either, just the characters. Though I guess some might still see them as the celeb behind the character... huh, interesting. I never thought of that. Like I would have Selena Meyer in my game, but I would never put Julia Louis Dreyfus in. That would be weird. But when I see Selena, I don't see Julia... I wonder if that is odd, lol.

    Some of my favourite sims are ones I made based on celebrities. I don't necessarily give them traits that I imagine the real life characters/actors have, or even play them in a way that represent them in their real lives or the lives of characters they portray but I enjoyed making them and adding them to my games for the genetic diversity they bring to my game. They may not be perfect but I probably don't have all the tools (or skill) necessary to do more.

    Here are my Sam and Dean Winchester sims:

    Keanu Reeves:

    Since I had already made a Keanu I felt I needed a River Phoenix sim:

    Spike and Angel:

    Jason Momoa (when I made this one I used an imagined blend of images I found of his younger days and current age):

    The latest addition was when the Plant Sim challenge showed up and tried doing Poison Ivy, unfortunally there was no way of giving her flowing red hair. Adding Sims based on a character gives me a head start, knowing what to expect from the character and flesh them out. Giving them something to straive for. The random created Sim is only based on its traits and aspiration.
  • Chaotic_MoiraChaotic_Moira Posts: 281 Member
    @Mikezumi I tried to recognize them before reading who they are. Keanu, and Spike and Angel jumped right out. Nice job. I don't know who all of them are, so I can't say on all of them.

    I don’t make famous people but I kind of like making famous Sims in TS4 I have a Lolita Goth as a teen, Mimi Landgraab, a few others. I kind of want to make Brandi Broke next.

    I haven't for a while but sometimes I play Westeros-themed games, or Harry Potter, or American sitcom characters (Friends, Frasier, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, and The Big Bang Theory). I also sometimes do historical themes (more difficult with Sims 4) but I've done the Bennet sisters from Pride and Prejudice in the past, and once I made Anne Lister and Ann Walker from Gentleman Jack (love that show!)

    l I've been getting bored with my more random sims in extended legacy games lately so I might have to start a themed game again soon. I do have some saves with characters from my own WIPs which I might go back to when I next feel like playing, but those don't count for this question because I haven't finished writing the books yet!

    I’ve considered doing a Sim version of Anne of Green Gables, but it’d be difficult for me to do personally. It’d be easiest for me to do a modernised version, but even then I’d have to adapt various scenes from the books. Sim Anne wouldn’t be able to crack a slate over Sim Gilbert’s head!
