This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

So I made a Sherlock sim some time ago and he's just been hanging in my sim bin for the longest time. I've constantly fiddled with him and now I think I'm finally satisfied. He is based on the BBC's Sherlock, in which Sherlock Holmes is played by the lovely Benedict Cumberbatch. Anyways, some people have shown a little interest in him lately so I've taken some pictures, packaged him up, and am putting him up here for download. I do hope you like him. I did the best I could to make him look like ol' Benedict, but that man has one beautiful funky face and it is sure hard to simmify. Also, he sadly has no John yet.







I hope you like him!

P.S. If you are in desperate need of a John sim, there is a lovely one here by xel_squirgle_ox.

P.S.S. If you are having trouble installing, please try using the clean installer and see if that works.

  • 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.

It's probably unacceptable to be attracted to a sim but dfjkal;fjdal;fjda;fd!! (I was going to start a huge Potter project but I may need to fiddle around with Sherlock for a bit. )

This is absolutely wonderful! I've been trying to create a neighborhood inspired by my love of BBC Shows and your Sherlock is, of course, going to be a lovely addition! Cheers and thanks to you!
