I almost always change their appearance. My game has a habit of aging toddlers up with odd CC hairstyles (mohawks, spiked hair, cornrows) which sometimes I do use, but aren't really appropriate for every toddler.

No, I change appearance often as soon as they are born. I will set baby clothes and sometimes hair, oftentimes I will give the baby an accessory like a dummy/paci, shoes, a rattle or a hair bow. I do the same with toddlers and they normally get a young toddler and an older toddler outfit. I use a teeth overlay blush that has 2 teeth top and bottom and one that has no teeth, those are for young toddlers. On day 4 I remove any dummy, teeth overlay but might add glasses and freckles. If you mean makeup makeup (lipstick, eyeliner and stuff) I add a little as teens, but my female sims wear very little makeup. I don't use nose masks and such either. As adults get older I add wrinkles and moles.

That's a completely different situation and I hope I didn't accidentally insult you or anything.

I was really just thinking of Sims in everyday situations. Like I don't know a player putting heavy (non-fancy dress, non-recital/play) makeup on a Sim kid to send them to school.

In my game it depends on what species they are.

I had a "shower thought" (Grr at work for making me be up this early on a Saturday) and was wondering how many other players have a naming tradition based on the circumstances of the Sim's birth. I personally use Constellation names for Sims born from alien abduction, and recently started using flower names for plant babies born from the "grow a plantbaby" option.

Anyone else do something similar?

I like to use heirloom names. I also use holidays and family birthdays. In addition, the first births of each months carry, in order, the month, the flower of the month, the birthstone of the month, the season, and what book in the Bible I'm studying as the month begins.

I LOVE the constellation idea for alien babies, though. I might just steal that one.

In my medieval hood I use elven names for my princes, princesses, lords and ladies, since they come from elven heritage. (So do the merchants and peasants, but they are in closer relations with them.) The peasants and merchants use medieval swedish names. In my old legacy family I reversed the genders, so boys had girls names and vice versa. In another legacy I used names from TV shows. I have a sim named Ellinor Vihdri (a misspelling of the word "disgusting" in Swedish) who tries to have a baby with every guy she meets (she shoots those who refuse with an assault rifle) and then have the babies taken away by the social worker. The babies are named different words for "unwanted", birth defects and abortion methods. I could go on. It's fun to have different "naming traditions", although that may not be what you had in mind.

I also use constellation names for alien babies. With my plantsims, I name females after flowers and males after trees.

Forgot I meant to respond to this, until I opened up my phone and saw a half written reply! Don't feel bad asking about my game--what are the forums for, if not to talk about our games?


As for baby names, I don't always have a particular convention, but sometimes, especially for premades, I like to look at their family tree and rename the newer generations after their ancestors. Like Brandi Broke named one of her younger sons Bobby after her dad and Angela Pleasant named her son Jeff after her grandfather. And when Malcolm Landgraab IV finally had a son a little while ago, of course he named him Malcolm, too, to keep the family tradition going. Though I think I might call him Col for short. But other than that, I don't have a particular name scheme--I just try to make sure no sim has the same name as another.

My aliens are usually named after famous scientists, sci-fi characters, or green (as in Hunter, Kelly, Olive etc.). Plant babies get plant names.

My plant babies also get plant names. Aliens usuall get named after constellations, famous scientists, planets/stars/moons or "Fetusoid" (a name I made up for alien sims when I was 9)

I quite often change toddlers' clothes, but I very rarely change anything else. When they grow up to child, I might change their hair, and I'll sometimes put glasses on children who seem destined for the Knowledge aspiration, but that's about it. As for make-up, pretty much the only Sims with make-up in my hoods are criminals, who have some kind of face make-up as an identifying tattoo - the style of 'tattoo' denotes the nature of the crime. I did recently discover the 'make-up' that allows elders to look older, though, so I might use that if I remember.
