Sims 3 Makeup for Beginners

Ok, so to make pretty (or scary) sims, you’ll need makeup. Not only for the lipstick or eyshadow, which is kind of obvious, but especially to give your sims much more realistic appearance. How? – By using makeup eyebags, shadows, pores and things like that, which add much detail to your sims faces.

Are mods the gamebreakers?

On-fotel

For the last few days I’ve been observing a discussion on one of the Facebook Sims groups about mods being safe. Well, it wasn’t really a discussion… Most of the group more or less attacked the girl, that said, in polite words, that she thought modding games was a massive risk.

 

You’d probably say “Hay, you mod your games, you can’t think it’s risky!”. Well, actually, I KNOW that it is risky, but I’m willing to take this risk, because I think it’s worth it.So, BEFORE you start modding any game, there are the dangers you should consider first:

Want to make your sim look less like a plastic toy and more like a real human being? Not admiring the barbie doll look that you get after simply getting rid of the mosaic? (If you haven’t done it yet check my tutorial on how to go about that.) If so, what you need are custom skins for your sims.

Sims 3 CAS Sliders

Slider Tut in CAS

With Zoom-In CAS Camera mod you can see better the sim you’re editting.

If you want to create your dream sim, no matter beautiful woman or handsome man (or maybe a monster) you will need to use the sliders. Those provided by EA as barely enough – that’s why numerous custom sliders have been created.Below you will find the sliders I use. I use only facial sliders, as messng with body sliders may distort the use of poses and animations and even normal interactions between sims. Like a hight slider, which inappropriatly used may turn a simple kiss into a disaster.

To use many custom sliders you will need a sliders hack. Luckily Nraas Master Controller does also that. Once you have Master Controller Installed, click on your sim in live mode, seclect Nraas / Mater Controller from the pie menu. In the table that apperas, choose Settings/CAS/Slider Multiple: Facial and set the value to at least 3. this will make the number of allowed facial sliders three times bigger than normal.

While creating your perfect sim it is really usefull to see a true close up on their face. Vanilla game allows for some, but it really isn’t enough. This problem is easily fixed by Zoom-In CaS Camera mod, that allows for greater close up while editig your sim in CAS.

Both Nraas Master Controller and custom sliders are installed like any other mod. If you don’t know how to do it, check here.

To make the game work faster, you can merge all the slider mods into one package. To see how to do it, check my post on Speeding up the game.
