No CC, no nothing :) Or as little as possible anyway :)
I'm considering Sims 3, and want to see if you amazing people can make the pudding faces look awesome without the CC.
CC and I don't get along because I'm kinda stupid with computer stuff :(
But anyway, I would love to see your pics :)

I use a very limited amount of CC, a lot of the stuff out there is often too great and surpasses the original content of the game and looks ugly when combined with it. For example, a lot of hairs people make are all smooth and shiny-like and don't look anything like the EA hairs (I like most of the EA hairs! :().
I always create Sims with minimal CC, usually just a default-replacement skin (which in my opinion is necessary as I think the default skins make Sims look like lumpy potatoes). I also don't use any slider hacks or anything, I think it like cheating. ;)

Anyways, since all the Sims I've posted thus far could be posted here, instead I'll post my newest creation. :) His name is Lloyd, but I haven't decided on a name (or traits) yet. He's kind of like an adorable loser. Like that boyfriend who's a total shrimp and would cry if you called him one.

Love the hair/eye combo for your sim Simtastic :) You make great sims even without much CC.

Aeschere, LOVE Lloyd, traits I would definitely suggest are loser (or unlucky?), coward, maybe the one that anti-art, and something positive?

That's what I always wonder for myself, simtastic2.

*feels so lame*

I'll post a picture of my first sim Tammy Sweet soon, but I apologize for my sad graphics in advanced.

Because he has cc eyes too, eyebrows and lipstick.I think the lip covering is part of the skin, and the brows could just be in a light colour meaning they look custom.

She only has cc skin (but is Maxis match :P ).
The hair is from the official store... so it's not cc... maybe more "premium content" if you ask me :p .

He actually does NOT have cc lipstick, and tbh I don't think his eyebrows are cc either.....

Nightlight, she is beautiful :) Love how the tilt in her eyes is just right :)
And the stuff from the official store doesn't count as CC to me, same creators, right?

Bumping this old thread because I've seen so many people say TS3 sims are so much uglier than TS2 and TS4. Uglier than TS2? I feel like they're doing it wrong. I admit, I've gone the easy way and use CC skin and hair to make decent looking sims these days, but I did have a few with no CC that I thought looked okay... better than I could have done without CC in TS2.
Anyone still enjoy the challenge of trying to make good looking sims without CC, or is this a dead art? I'm still interested in seeing what people can do when bound by the limits of EA skin, hair, makeup, clothes, etc.

This is my favorite EA-everything sim, from 2010 when I got Late Night.

Early last year, finding a use for Katy Perry crap. Liked this outfit (because boobs). All EA craps here too.

As soon as I saw this threat I had to go to CAS and see what I can come up with.

There are absolutely no cc. All the clothes and make up and the hair are basegame or from a EP. I choose these clothes and hair becouse those are the ones I actually use on my own sims all the time. I ended up liking her so much that I played with her for awhile. Everytime I see people debating over TS2 sims, they are usually full on cc and TS3 are awfully make with mix n match colored clothes and hair. How is that playing it fair? Yes cc make all the sims look better, but if I had to choose only to play vanilla game, i would choose TS3. For the obvious reasons.

Couple more sims w/no CC from a few years ago.

Girl I made for France. No, I have no clue how French people dress.

Lovely sims here! Really great to see what people can do without (much) CC :)

A few more without CC. Because I keep reading in the Sims 4 forum how horrible Sims 3 sims look without CC. I just don't think they are that bad.
