119 Thanks  Thanks     38 Favourited
UPDATE JUNE 22 2018: Added new .zip file which enables SHODAN's outfit for the Seasons patch's 'Cold Weather' and 'Hot Weather' categories. If you are installing this sim for the first time, please also download the 'SHODAN - Updated for Seasons' .zip file and let the enclosed outfit package file overwrite the old one that was in the original zip file. If you already have this sim, then just download the Updated zip and let the package inside it overwrite your old one. Then go into Full Body outfits in the Cold and Hot Weather categories and click on the SHODAN outfit to make sure it's enabled (see new pic added, 'Updating SHODAN For Seasons').

UPDATE March 21 2016: With this sim having been one of my very first creations when TS4 first came out, and CAS-related things having changed a lot since then, I updated SHODAN's skin, hair and clothes to improve the sim with regards to bath skin, hats, accessories, and new clothing categories - when I made this sim, Swimwear didn't even yet exist! She also now has a shinier texture, with a custom specular which was not yet possible way back then.

If you already have this sim, please re-download, delete the two old package files dated November 5 2014 from your Mods folder, and move the three new ones dated March 21 2016 to your Mods folder. You will need to apply her new hair by selecting it for Everyday and it should then apply automatically to all other categories. With the new hair, her hair will no longer default to black when bathing/nude. If you're downloading this for the first time, she should just appear in-game as depicted here, without you needing to do anything extra.

Having been kicked out of Citadel Station in System Shock 1 and then blasted into hyperspace in System Shock 2, SHODAN is feeling a little peeved by now. So she's decided to settle in Oasis Springs and wreak havoc on your sims instead.

TRAITS: Nerd Brain, Quick Learner, Evil, Genius, Ambitious.

Note: I strongly recommend using Zerbu's 'Impassive Trait' to replace one of the above traits (Ambitious is probably the most expendable one), so that she doesn't go around smiling all the time:

She should arrive in CAS looking as she does here, but if not, her hair texture is in Hairs, her underlying skin is in Skin Details, and her outfit (which also contains her eye texture) is in Fullbody Outfits. These items are not enabled for Random, so you shouldn't get SHODAN-like townies appearing around town. She can wear head accessories and body accessories, but not leg/feet accessories such as socks, tights or shoes as those will take on the skin texture. Underneath the custom skin she has green skin, so that is what she'll add to the genetic pool should you let her reproduce.

SHODAN drinks to forget her defeats on Citadel Station and the Rickenbacker:

As an all-powerful AI, she expects both humans and aliens to obey her. "You dare defy me, insect?"

After a fun day out harassing other sims, SHODAN enjoys relaxing at her Control Center, working on her plans for world domination.

Thanks for looking, hope you'll have fun with her.

SIMS 3 version here:

Download the zip file and unzip it. Move the three .package files (which contain the hair, outfit, and underlying skin) to your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods folder. Then copy the five files inside the folder called SHODAN Tray (which contains the SHODAN sim) to your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Tray folder.
