He's one of my model stallions, and so are the others that will come later to this Realistic men-series of sims. Their personalities and stories are based on real events in my game!



His friends laugh that Darren's last name shouldn't be Walker, but Runner, for he's seen running shirtless along the coast line by the whole town more often than daily news... Well, what can you say about it, he simply loves to run for the fun. Shirtless. With an occasional naked dive to the freaking cold ocean.
...'cause hey, "clothes itch!" He'd be shirtless all the time if he could.




Darren wakes up everyday at sunrise, and goes for a run straight out from the bed. Why?
He just can't get enough of the salty wind against the face and through the hair. He is at peace, the world stands still as Walker runs.



Darren is one of those people who don't want to be confined by the rules of the system ("I didn't even like that collage anyway", "You didn't even like that car anyway","Why do I need a shirt anyway","That job was poorly paid anyway")
And if you'd ask his mother.. "THAT BOY OUGHT TO CUT HIS HAIR, PUT A SHIRT ON AND GET A REAL JOB!"

That's just the way he is. But he has become more responsible with age, as he realized his true dreams. And those dreams?
A home at the shoreline with thick foliage between neighbors for exhilarating clothing-free runs.
To achieve his dream, he's working as a wave spotter of a surfing magazine.

Darren picks his clothes by how easy they come off ("...'cause they itch!". But he can also clean himself up, which to him, means flattening the hair and putting on a shirt.

I've used Awesome mod's 3x slider increase, so if you don't have any slider multipliers in game, don't change the face or it'll reset and look oooogly!! Seriously, very ugly.
Please download all the sliders I've linked, or he will look very weird in game!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Meshes needed! This download requires one or more meshes to work properly. Please check the Description tab for information about the meshes needed, then download them below:
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the sim to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sim file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game, enter Create-a-Sim, and save a sim to the sim bin to create this folder, rather than doing so manually. After that you can close the game and put the .sim file in SavedSims
4. Once the .sim file is in SavedSims, you can load the game, and look for your sim in the premade sims bin in Create-a-Sim.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Ooh, extremely nice one. I'm always looking for good breeders to spread their genes (I couldn't make a good looking sim even if my life depended on it) so thanks! :D

I adore his face! There's something immensely appealing about the shape of his mouth and his eyes.

One quick question: his facial hair seems to be a light brown. Does this mean your facial hair first aid pack is recolorable now? Because that would excite me so very, very much. I would use them on every single male I had if I could get them a color besides black.

Whoa, he's the exact type of a sim I've been creating over and over... just waaay better :D

That set isn't recolorable, but it is slightly transparent, which makes the stubble and beards to adapt to the skin tone and hair.

My apologies for posting my previous comment/question in the wrong thread. I have both of these hair styles in the list and all the other CC. I thought there might be a third not in the list. Anyway, thanks for your replies. You do great work.

Aw, I'm sorry if he's still not working, I don't know what causes that.. Sometimes they just don't work because of some really microscopic fault 'cause this game tends to be like that.. :/
Although, just to be sure, check that you have the latest patch of the game, and that you put the .sim-file in Mydocuments/TS3/savedsims -folder..

hi there I downloaded this guy but he is black and has no hair but another sim i have has his hair and it shows up, but after I select him the game just shuts down and its only happened after i have selected him, just wondering if there is something i have not downloaded that will make him work, do i need the anubis bit because it just keeps showing as not able to be found? thanks

He appears black because you don't have the non-default skin tone-program installed, BUT the skin should appear as normal when you just click on any skin tone in CAS.
And you will need to download his clothes and shoes too to make him work, and the other hair too, because he has two hair meshes.
