Nikki Sixx (born Frank Carlton Ferrana, Jr., December 11, 1958) is an American bassist, author, fashion designer, photographer, and the main songwriter for the band Mötley Crüe. He has also played bass for glam metal bands London, the experimental band 58, the hard rock band Brides of Destruction and more recently, Sixx:A.M.

(Wikipedia)

Ok, I'll admit that I'm not the biggest Mötley Crüe fan out of there, even if I still enjoy their music. The idea for this sim came just after seeing the hair conversion you can see in these screenshots, which looked pretty damn close to Nikki Sixx's hair... that made me think that he would have been one hell of a sim, and here's the final result I had a lot of fun making him and playing with him, hope you'll like this Nikki sim as much as I do =)

He should be compatible with base game, just make sure to use a fully patched game, 'cos I used that opacity tool for make up that came with the Ambitions patch, and I don't know if that's gonna cause any problems for games with previous patches! If you experience any problem, just let me know!


Now going with the...

Custom content used:

Sim
-Non-default hairy skintone, converted by jmtmom
-Face skin replacement by Aikea Guinea
-Hair by Discovering Club (scroll down the page and click on the Download button... if you have troubles getting it from there, follow the infos on MS3B)
-Lipstick by The Sims World
-Eyebrows by Arisuka
-Eyebags, still by Arisuka (can't say from which set they are, exactly... I have all of them!)
-Tiffany Glaze default replacement eyes by escand (in case you don't want to change your defaults, you might download the eye contacts version, found in the same link)
-Stubble by bocboc256

Clothes/accessories
-Open shirt by Lady Frontbum
-Leather pants by Aikea Guinea
-Tattoos: Japanese sleeves + backpiece by XJonasX

Other outfits are all Maxis ones.

Mods used - PLEASE READ:

-AwesomeMod for slider multiplier, you'll need that if you want to edit the sim's features, and to remove the limit to the number of additional sliders you can have in game. If you don't want to install AwesomeMod, here you can get another hack to remove just the slider limit.
-Facial sliders by Ahmad. Just download 'em all :P
-UI Mod by Rez Delnava: you'll *NEED* this for the non-default skintone to show up. Otherwise, you're probably gonna get a scary boogeyman with no eyes, instead of Nikki Sixx.
EDIT: the UI mod is not updated for PATCH 1.17/Late Night, however you don't really need it anymore for the non-default skintone to show up: if you install non-default skintones, in fact, the game will still recognize them: read the note added by the MTS staff on the top of the UI Mod page to have more infos on how non-default skintones work in game
EDIT #2: added a version of the sim packaged with default skintone

Additional Credits:
HUGE thanks to all the people that helped me to improve the sim in the Creator Feedback Forum! You rock! =)

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
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.

This is absolutely amazing. You have truly done a fantastic job. I'd like to download the file, but I'm having some trouble. I hope this isn't something really dumb that I'm overlooking, but here it goes: I can download the file, and I can extract it, but when I try to double-click on it, there is no known self executing program attached to it. In other words, I get kicked to a window asking me to brouse the internet for the correct program to open the file. Any ideas as to what I'm missing?

Thanks for the comment well, you don't really have to open the file with a program, the only thing you have to do is to put it into your Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/SavedSims folder. If you don't have a SavedSims folder, create it yourself and put the sim in there. Once in the game, you'll see the sim in your sim bin, under Young Adults

No worries, after the Late Night patch you don't need to download that UI mod anymore, non-default skins will work even without it. On the top of the UI mod page there's an additional note by the MTS staff with better clarifications on the use of non-default skins without the UI mod, read those to know how it works exactly.

I do believe he's been stolen, given a nose-job, and posted here:

As much as I am more of a 1950s girl, the 80s still hold a place in my heart. I love Nikki Sixx, and this is just flawless. Great work!

Oh Nikki. <3 I've always loved Motley Crue, but lately I've been into Sixx:AM and his fantastic books. This man is such an inspiration to me and you've captured him very well. Thanks so much.

You need to download him into saved sims folder and save the other thing she has for him in your mods folder. If you never downloaded from here, I have found out how to do download from here on youtube.
