Sim Kids for Great Justice/Diversity Challenge

CHECK CHECK CHECK CHECK IT OUT!! New challenge for pixel_trade, inspired by the technique lemon_lime35 used to create her four founders for the June Founder Collection. :D :D

Its a constant complaint in the Sims community, that so many Sims that are shared look like face templates just a little tweaked. Here at pixel_trade , we all know its a constant struggle to find the balance between really individual and attractive when making new Sims. Well, unless we're making Doohickeys ;)

Last month, lemon_lime35 decided to experiment with making sims in a way that could possibly result in a LOT more diversity. And came up trumps! Sharing this technique with us we thought it was an AWESOME opportunity for a new challenge and a little non-controversial genetic engineering! :D :D

How to play:

  1. Open up Bodyshop
  2. Choose Build Sims, then Build or Clone Sims, and then Build a Sim
  3. Set a body type and gender of your choosing, but set the age of the sim you are building to Child. OOOH YEAAH! You heard me xD
  4. Make your child sim as cute, interesting, awkward as you want: chipmunk cheeks, moon faces, huge chibi eyes, squinty little peepers that just SCREAM coke-bottle glasses: go your hardest.
    • Remember the purpose of this excercise is sharing so defaults are encouraged, BUT you're not restricted by them as this is not a founder collection. ^_^
  5. When you have a child you're happy with, screen shot them like a mad fool.
  6. CLICK THE ADULT TAB!
  7. Welcome to your new sim. :D
    • If there's something really blindingly wrong about this sim then feel free to make minor tweaks, but no major changes. And we'd love for you to document the before and after here too.
  8. Take some screenies of your new sim, package them up and SHARE! :D
    • And by share I mean post them up in this thread if you've only got a screenshot or two, or in a seperate post either in the comm, or in your own journal with a teaser/ad back to it for us to squee over :D

I wanna post my sims soooo badly, but everytime i try to package them they end up being 200 mg and up. it's trés depressing, especially since i never include cc in the packages.

O_O;;; How are you packaging them?

I did once try to package a sim on a blank lot for a friend once (before I found out that was VERBOTEN! xD) and she ended up being 200MG...

I grabbed Sondra. This is a totally awesome idea... I'm taking screenies of mine right now. But I *should* be updating my legacy. -.-

So, I have to know.

If I want to post to the community, with my Kids For Diversity challnge post on the main page, can I just post and submit? Or is there something I need to do first.

I just want to know now so I'm not getting yelled at for something really stupid later. 8D;

Nothing too dire! xD Make sure you only post one image/teaser and the rest behind a cut - or linked back to your journal page. And make sure you take it with the !kids for diversity tag and your personal tag - though if you don't have a personal tag yet I'll just make that for you when you post. ^_^
