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.

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.

I'm sorry to say that i'm not %100 sure. Originally I thought that it would require pets but people who had pets still had issues installing. I would just try installing it and if it's not working try using the clean installer.

Wow! This is such an amazing sim, I've been playing it in my game for a few weeks. Would it be at all possible to upload the outfit recolor you used in the pics though? The one without the coat? I love the recolour with the coat that came with the sim, but I really want to have the jacket-less one for everyday and the coat one for outerwear. If not, thanks anyway! A super great sim regardless!

Isn't his hair backwards? :o Still, quite well done. I'm just going to let him face off against my other neighborhood genius detective, "L Lawliet", and see how they fare... *laughs*

Anyone seen a nice flat I can set him up in? I'm too lazy to build at the moment.

Cant Wait For The Next Season Madness!!!
Maxis left out jumping from tall buildings as a cause of death.



I don't follow Tumbler because they are giving peep shots of Season 3. But my friend said they wanted to feed Sherlock Red Bull!!!



Lovely job.


Btw, I didn't download cause it will just make me cry. But when I cannot find a whole sims for download I look for them in all ages. Sometimes they are uploaded accidentally young - teenager or college age.

This is simply amazing! I attempted to make a Sherlock sim but it didn't turn out very well at all, considering Benedict's bone structure :P

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU everyone who has left such lovely comments! I am so so sorry I haven't been able to respond for such a long time. I have had some computer issues recently and I've also had a crazy time dealing with moving and school starting and whatnot so I haven't been able to keep up with sims things. I will try to get to everyone's question's now though.

@dalecay Sadly I have not had the time to try my hand at making a John sim yet, and I don't know when/if that might happen.

@PixiePunk I don't have a computer with sims at the moment, but as soon as I get my old one back I will definitely upload his outfits.

@supernaturalfan94 I'm sorry but I only own sims 2 so I won't be able to make a sims 3 version.

@Pukitaki Yes, haha, his hair is backwards, but I liked that mesh the best even though the bangs were on the opposite side.

@MikaDolla Yes, of course! He just wouldn't be complete without the purple shirt of sex.

@howlhesparkels Yes there are meshes, but I thought I had included them. If you're having trouble installing though I can hopefully upload a version with no custom meshes.

@Amieelyne I love Robert Sheehan too, so who knows, it's always a possibility. (I can't promise anything though)

@Capafhan & @jadethespade Have you tried double clicking on the sims2pack to install it? (I'm sorry if that doesn't help you. I'm not the best at giving people installation help )

Thank you again everyone! I'm glad you like how my Sherlock turned out, and I'll gladly answer (as best as I can) anymore questions that anyone may have.
