One question, is there anyway for the game not to pick ugly clothing combinations?

Unfortunately, no. Anyone who can program fashion sense into this game would be my personal savior!

It's a boolprop cheat object. When you use the testingcheatsenabled code, you can access it by shift-right clicking on a sim and selecting the spawn option.

It's a device you can use to create all manner of townies and NPCs. But like all things boolprop, you need to be careful with how you use it.

Thanks for all of the hard work y'all.
Does anyone have any pics of sims they have created since installing this? I'm curious what some look like before I get this. Especially ones where you took two to create a baby in CAS or even born in game if they are teen or older.
Thanks.

This looks like a good thread to ask this again.

Is there any way to get the game to consider my custom content when making townies like Sims 1 did?

I am late in responding but here's my two cents : I don't appreciate the game putting blue eyes or blond hair on dark skinned townies. Do they think that peple will not play ordinary brown and black characters in their game? Most black and brown people simply don't have blue and green eys. What's wrong with that? There's nothing to be ashamed about. It's perfectly natural. that is the way nature made huamn beings. Look all over Asia, Africa and the Middle East and you will rarely find some brown skinned or black sknned human being with blue or green eys. I think people should be PROUD of how nature made them and not want to hide it. Of course; if you want to dye your hair or wear contact lenses, that's nobody's business but your own (or your sim's) but shame and dishonesty about nature should not enter into the equation. Too many dark people are ashamed or sorry that they are not white, blue-eyed and blond. Ugh.

Posted some pics for everyone to see. Wish I could post faces of every single one, but that would be something like 200+ pictures!

When I downloaded the Jeanette Beidermann package from this site, it created a new, even uglier, face template in my bodyshop...

Do you have screenshots to verify this? I installed the Jeanette Beidermann package quite some time ago and it did not add a face template, only the Jeanette sim and its accessories.

What would happen if you only did the males? or only the females? Would you wind up with twice as many possible looks? Or would the new mens' daughters look like the original females rather than a feminine version of the new males features?

Edit: Never mind above question. Found answer in one of the other threads.

About Jeanette Biederman: I don't know if the new face came with her or not, but since I installed NL there is definitely a new female face in Bodyshop. Adult only. Doesn't look anything like the full sim Jeanette though. And I have had Jeanette for quite a while but hadn't noticed this new face till NL. Don't remember if I've seen her in CAS or not. Tried to check but my CD drive isn't wanting to run tonight.

As mentioned before, screenshots would be a big help. I have Nightlife and Uni installed as well. Every face template that I changed had a corresponding file in the "CASFaces.package" file that had a timestamp dating it as August 2004 -- prior to the release of the base game.

I love them!
Quick question though, if I ever want to go back to the good old Maxis defaults, how would one remove this file? Would it switch back to the original templates?
TIA!

There's nothing subtle or hidden here about using these files folks.

1. To use them, put them in your downloads folder.

2. To stop using them, remove them from your downloads folder. (If you take them out, the old Maxis defaults will return.)

No cheat codes required. The files affect both the game and BodyShop.
