Making super realistic Sims has gotten easier and easier with each subsequent version of Sims but one thing that has always been missing is body freckles.
If you’re a natural redhead [or have ever dated one] then you know that most redheads get freckles instead of tanning and usually they have freckles all over them.
While you’re able to make a rockin’ redhead with Sims 3, the only freckles you can add are facial freckles and that’s great unless you’re wanting a realistic bathing suit shot.
New One 08 has created some fantastic body freckles sets and I’m bringing you “Part One”. You can find a link to “Part Two” on the Overview page.
The truly awesome thing about the body freckles for Sims 3 is that you can have them on just the Sims’ hands, on just the Sims’ bodies or you can have them on both and the freckles are recolourable so you can even have green freckles if you want – though that wouldn’t exactly be realistic.
Alas, there are no body freckles for babies and toddlers but you’re golden if you’re making a Teen through Elder Sim. And, since these are considered Accessories, make note of what you can and can’t have on your Sims with regards to other accessories [all of that is listed on the Overview page].
Any download that brings more realism to the game is golden in my book and think you’ll agree.
There’s something about Amy Lee that’s a bit odd.
I don’t mean odd in a bad way…maybe the best word would be interesting.
I first heard about her band Evanescence several years ago when I was in Little Rock and I fell in love with them. While the popularity of the band seems to have waned a bit, they still have a great sound.
If you’re a fan of the band as a whole or of just Amy Lee, you’ll like this Sims 2 download. Anubis did a bang-up job with this version of Amy Lee for Sims 2.
As always, make sure that …read more
I’ve decided the best way to recap 2009 is to go through the site and pull links to the stuff that I thought was pretty cool from the year.
The list starts with this month and then goes down to January. Read over the links if you have time since some of them are really good.

This hair is actually a really popular hair for Sims 2 that has been converted for Sims 3.
What’s great about Anubis converting this hair is that there isn’t that much of a selection when it comes to Sims 3 hair. And what is available seems a bit too boring.
If you want Raon female hair for Sims 3 to work for toddler and kids, make sure you install the toddler-to-elder version.
The cool thing about this hair [other than the fact that it looks awesome] is that you can recolour it just like any default hair and you can recolour the tie …read more
This time of year, you tend to see all kinds of lists and one that’s making its way around the internet right now is the “Most Pirated Games of ‘09″ list.
Though Modern Warfare 2 tops the list, Sims 3 is right behind on this list of infamy with 3,200,000 downloads as of December 27th.
If you go with the original launch price and you don’t include tax [since that gets all messy and stuff] then that means that EA lost $150,968,000 in illegal downloads of the game.
While I 100% understand not having the money to get the game that you JUST …read more
One thing that has always bugged me about the bulletin boards in Sims 3…and Sims 2 for that matter…is that they don’t work.
They look nice enough and serve to make the environment more “believable” but that’s all you can do with them.
But now, with the Working Bulletin Board, you can actually interact with the bulletin boards in Sims 3.
This download allows you to make notes for yourself to keep plot lines straight or maybe goals for your Sims straight. Your Sims themselves can’t do anything with the bulletin board and will ignore it just like they always have. Think of …read more
So you got all of this Christmas money burning a hole in your pocket and you’re not quite sure what to do with it.
If you’re anything like me, you’ve started looking for Sims stuff to buy and while buying some Sims Points might blow through some of your cash and you’ll be able to download some cool Maxis created stuff, what you really want is Sims 3 or maybe World Adventures.
But the $50 and $40 price tags seem a bit steep. Am I right?
Well, as a small Christmas gift to you for being such a rockstar person, EA is offering …read more
How can I get much more plain than with that title?
I downloaded the Create a World Tool for Sims 3 and I didn’t have any grand plans. I was just going to load it [since my game isn't working right now] and play around with it and see what I could come up with.
My first annoyance [and this really has nothing to do with the tool itself] was how damn long it took to download the thing. I don’t remember the exact time but I do remember coming back again and again to see if the thing was finished.
Once …read more
If you’re looking for a good alien or fantasy character, you’ll find that the default colors available really aren’t up to par.
The color depth isn’t what it should be and the green just isn’t…well…green enough.
Default replacements can be a wonderful way to “fix” some of the inadequacies found in the base Sims 3 game and if you’re not too scared to give them a try, they can elevate your game to something that’s even more believable or fantastical.
Download the file [Desktop will work for a target location] and the install it here:C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages.

It’s Christmas Eve and what Sim doesn’t want to wake up to a 2009 Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG in their driveway?
Treat your Sim right this holiday season and get them this car. They’ll thank you.
Just like all of Fresh Prince’s stuff, this car is top notch.
Since I’m still fighting with my patched game, I haven’t downloaded this car yet so I can’t tell you with any certainty if the headlights work [nothing was mentioned on the download page] or if it’s recolourable …read more
