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

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

  • If you get an error that says "This content requires expansion pack data that is not installed", please use either Clean Installer to install this sim.

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.

Hi, sorry for my late reply to you. I'm sure everything in the package is base game and contains nothing from any expansion. I'm not sure what to suggest for Mac but I looked it up on Google and it seems alot of people have this problem with a Mac; i wasn't sure what i could link to on here but you can find loads of pages if you google "sims 2 custom content mac error needing expansions" hope this helps

Nice outfit. The hair is good too, but it should be a brown not black. She had medium brown/dark brown hair. I love that game. Have you done any of the other characters from it?

Hi thanks for your comment.

Just to say her hair is in fact black not brown; see the photos I provided or Google search her, refresh your memory by playing the game maybe or watching her on any YouTube video. Or have a look at the Mass Effect Wiki, found here if you scroll down to the bottom under the Trivia section it states;

"Early ideas of Miranda pegged her as a blonde, but once they created her Cerberus uniform, black hair seemed to better complement the "femme fatale" look."

Although in some photos of her in outside scenes her hair has a lighter brown hue to it, which is often the case with people with black hair when outside in the sun light (personal experience, my hair is black) so I see where your coming from on that .

I am currently working on a new mass Effect Sim as I’ve said before but cannot give a time estimate on it. I will be making most of the cast of Mass Effect 1 and 2, with a few exceptions such as Tali, there is already a perfect Tali on this site I don't feel the need to make another.

Tried to put this in my game, but it said I didn't have the right expansion pack content.

Would it be possible for you to upload just the outfit separately? I would love to have the Cerberus uniform.

Hello. I'm sorry I have no idea what's going on there. Try downloading CEP or Clean Installer if you haven’t already, I have added a small help section to the top of my post here about a common Mac problem I was asked about if you’re on a Mac, take a look at my suggestions there . Let me know how it works out.

I'm sorry but I only own the Sims 3 and two expansions and have only played them a handful of times. I really don't like the Sims 3 and I wouldn’t know how to make something like this for the Sims 3 as I have never tried to make an outfit for it.

Someone did make a version for Sims 3, not sure if it's available for download. You could ask though Miranda Lawson Sims 3 just to give you a link there.

Hi, I'm sorry I'm not sure why she wouldn’t be showing up, have you tried all the advice in the install instruction tab and on the first page here? If so I'd have a quick look on Google. Get back to me if you can't find anything.
