PLEASE READ BEFORE TRYING TO DOWNLOAD

I have been asked by a few people how they go about downloading this and about problems with it not showing up; issues with expansion pack error messages and so on. I have left replies in the comments section on my download but also felt the need to add it here as I keep being asked about this. Firstly I’d like to make it clear that this download is base game compatible and no expansions are needed.

If using a MAC and getting the needing expansion packs error; Google “Sims 2 custom content Mac error needing expansions" and many pages will show up with helpful downloads and hints. This worked for one downloader having this issue. I won't link to anything on here as I’m unsure of what is allowed.

If having problems with downloads and using PC try downloading CEP and/or the Clean installer, both linked in a comment on my comments section of this download.

Make sure to read the install instruction tab too.



******************************************************

This is my first upload so I hope I've done everything right I am always downloading stuff from MTS so I thought it was about time I post something myself, I’ve wanted a Miranda Lawson sim in my game for ages because I love the Mass Effect games and in Mass Effect 2 Miranda was one of my favorite characters. However after alot of searching trying to find a Miranda sim already online and failing, I decided to make my own version of her. So here she is, Miss Miranda Lawson of Mass Effect 2 fame. Born in the year 2150, Miranda Lawson is a genetically engineered human designed to be a specimen of human perfection. She is also a valued operative with the Cerberus organization.




She comes packaged with her hair, brows, skin tone, make up and meshes, thanks to the generous share policies of the creators listed. I did have a darker re colour of Helaene’s bold brows but I couldn’t manage to get a hold of her to ask if I could include them so I have just included the original brows which are only slightly lighter than my recolor anyway. I made the hairline using my own textures and editing a Maxis costume make up mask, to go with the hair recolor by icedmango I have used. The hair line is available for female Sims of all ages. The outfit was made by me using a combination of Paint and Photoshop and is available for Adult females under every day, athletic and if you have Seasons, outdoor wear. All the clothing textures were made by me using a free online file converter and Photoshop. The gun in the pictures is not included but can be found here

Please do not claim my work as your own. Please do not upload my creations to any paid sites and please give me credit with a clickable working link to my Miranda here on MTS if you wish to use any of my work elsewhere or wish to recolor anything of mine. And please let me know if you do use anything of mine, I like to know where my stuff ends up. Please see the other individual creators polices for all the other items I have included with my upload of Miranda before re using them for anything. If you download don't forget to hit the thanks button and/or comment

Something in this package requires something other than the base game and Pets, unfortunately. Can't open it. :/ Even though the download states base game. I has a sad, because this looks positively gorgeous.

Thanks guys for the comments monca I couldn't have made her face so awesome without your input in CFF Zekiran it should work, I tested it with just the Sims 2 Double Deluxe which is just base game, nightlife and celebration stuff, on another PC and I patched my body shop and used clean installer. What do you mean when you say you can't open it? It doesn’t show up in game? I'll see what I can do to help you
Bowties are cool.

"Night life and celebration" - are not base game. I have the base game and Pets, not the double deluxe.

The package installer that comes with the game doesn't allow me to open and install the package, because it has content that isn't supported with my installed version.

Hmm very strange, well everything should be work fine as clothing, make up, meshes etc are all base game, there isn’t anything in the package that came with any expansion pack as far as I’m aware and I double checked all things made by other creators included, defiantly not with anything I created, just base game stuff. Clothing, skin and make up are normally all base game only compatible, I’m sure meshes are base game only compatible to. Sorry it doesn’t seem to work for you, have you downloaded the Clean Installer and CEP? That could be the reason it won’t show up if you have not. I'm not sure what else to suggest, if anyone can come up with anything please let us know

Awesome. I usually don't download packaged sims, but this is just too awesome.

Maybe you can do Wrex next? :3

Looking forward to what comes next. Maybe you could do the alternate outfits for a little practice/exposure?

Sorry to hear your Miranda was rejected Silver MisterDyslexo; I won't be doing Wrex next because I want to make a few more of my favourite characters and as much as I loved Wrex he's down a few on my list after Mass Effect 2 blasted awesome new characters at me Expect a few other characters from the Mass Effect universe though; I’m working on one right now. And eventually I may tackle Wrex/Grunt, if people want them.

Cool, that's Yvonne Strahovski from "Chuck!" I didn't know they made her character in the game look just like her!

Great job on Miranda, she looks fantastic!

Can you please add separate downloads for the clothing and mesh together? As I don't have Celebration Stuff, I can't install the SimPack.

JustWanaSearch: You don't need Celebration Stuff to download this Sim, the outfit and outfit mesh are both base game compatible, if that's what you mean? If your having trouble seeing it in your game you could download the Clean Installer and CEP , both of which can be found here on MTS. See if that works first then let me know if it’s still not showing up and I’ll see what I can do.

I have a Mac. The Clean Installer isn't compatible, and the CEP doesn't change anything.

I know that the outfit and outfit mesh are base game compatible - and if you're sure that nothing else in the SimPack is from Celebration Stuff, then I have no idea what to do.

EDIT: And by the way, fantastic job! Forgot to mention that.
