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.

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

This is quite literally the most realistic real-person-Sim I've ever seen. I'm tempted to download him and I never download Sims based on celebrities! He looks just like Benedict Cumberbatch!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you everyone! I'm so sorry it has taken me a long time to reply. Regarding the issues with installing, I'm not quite sure why it isn't working and I'm sorry to say that I don't know how to fix it. I will do my best though to find out what's wrong. And for those who asked about a John sim, I do plan on trying to make him eventually but I'm just not sure when.
Once again, thank you for all of the lovely comments! Sorry I couldn't be more helpful to those having problems.

He looks awesome! REally perfect, the eyes, mouth, especially the form of the face which seems to be hard to do. I'm a bit sad I can't use it (no Pets EP) but really, it's just a pleasure to look at it it's such a great work. Thanks for making this!

Thank you to everyone for the extremely lovely comments! <3

I apologize to the people having trouble installing Sherlock, I'm not exactly sure what the problem is but I will try to find out. In the meantime I suggest installing with the clean installer if you haven't tried that already (and if it works please let me know). Also I think I'm going to take the pets requirement off because it seems to me that it's not what is required...
