This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
If you've seen "Brokeback Mountain".... SHHH! Please don't discuss the plot in this thread. We don't want to spoil it for people who haven't seen it yet, right? Thanks.

Here are Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger as their "Brokeback Mountain" characters Jack Twist & Ennis Del Mar. They come packaged with the Maxis Nightlife clothes in the first pic. I also have University installed, so they probably require both EPs unless you use Clean Installer.

The hair you see in these pics is the hair under their hats - I nixed that crazy Elvis-hair for these two cowboys. Any other pictured clothing not included.

FYI, Jake (Jack) is the brunet, Heath (Ennis) is the blond.

Please don't redistribute these sims or altered versions of them. Thank you.

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

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.

These are absolutely beautifully done! Good work!!!! You managed to capture them so well, and I do love the little collage, it's so sweet! I'm going to see the movie later in the week, but is it possible to get a closer look at Heath's character as a sim?
#3 Old 28th Dec 2005 at 8:39 PM

What on earth? How'd this get to be "featured"? Thanks... whoever! :D

synfullegend, I've added another pic of the Heath sim for ya... it's just awaiting approval.

xFurtherAway, the movie is already playing in some theatres and I think it opens in more on Jan 13. At least in the U.S. and Canada, that is. (I saw it last weekend, yay!)

(Well, a few nights ago technically.)

alekz: Since I have Nightlife installed there's no way for me to make a package that doesn't require it. But you should try using Clean Installer to install anything that requires an EP you don't have. Hopefully that should work... minus the clothes, of course.

Everyone: Has anyone tried installing these guys? If so, did the hat/hair work? It works for me, but I've gotten a PM from someone saying it didn't work for them. As I explained in my previous "hat testers wanted" thread - I didn't exactly know what I was doing modding that hat. It was pure determination for Jack & Ennis to never have pompadours that got this hat mod barely made.

Also, thanks for the nice compliments guys! I'm thrilled you like 'em. :cowboy:

This definitely needed to be a featured item.

The movie isn't coming to a theatre in my area; *grumble* ...but now I can make my own. :p

Thank you!

Yay! These are so cool! I know the little Kansas town (3,000 people) that I live in will probably not get this movie, but at least I can have the Jack and Ennis sims! Thank You!

I think they are featured for the same reason anything else is featured............. why do people keep asking this? They are nice looking sims. I mean, hell, do y'all ask why OTHER things are featured?
