Here is my version of Boromir

I didn’t really intend to make Boromir, but he just kind of appeared. I always loved his tragic character: noble, yet very flawed. He’s almost too good-looking, but he was the “golden boy”, preferred by his father Denethor. Again, without the great custom content by other creators, he wouldn’t be anything special.

Custom content included:

Her site is still down, but hopefully it will re-open soon.

The queen of skintones!

Fabulous hair, you probably already have it since it’s been downloaded nearly 17,000 times.

Clothes by Miien:

Her beautiful LOTR clothes were an inspiration for me to try to make these sims.


The following meshes are needed for him to show up properly in your game:

He should work with or without expansion packs, but I do have all packs so far.

My sharing policy:
I've decided everything that I've made can be boiled, fried, folded, spindled mutilated...Whatever! My only stipulation is that everything stays 100% FREE. Beyond that, a little nod for credit is nice, but I'm not going to get worked up over it if you don't.

This works fine for my neighborhoods. It's a lot more complicated with my sims though. They are full of other people's work and there is a wide variety of terms of use among them. So you shouldn't repost them as is. If you want to take the sim face and slap different skin, hair, eyes, clothes on it... fine, have at it.

**Don't interpret this to mean you have the right to use the custom content I used without credit to the original creator though.**

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.

Hi, I noticed you used my robe. Glad you like it. It doesn't need University, since it's a custom Mesh by the Magic Modders. The Sim you made is quite cute, but I don't think he really looks like Boromir, unless it's your interpretation of Boromoir, then we can't argue

Thanks for letting me know that uni isn't needed. He is too good-looking really, but it's all interpretation. : : I was reading LOTR while Peter Jackson was in diapers (I'm positively ancient) . :skull: I think Sean Bean was wonderful in the movie, but trying to make sims look like real live people is not something I can do.

Thanks for creating him! Boromir is one of the most underrated and overlooked characters in the films and books.

Hmmm... Like Miien all ready said, he really doesn't look Boromir too much, but then again "my" Boromir is based on what I imagined while reading LOTR, so can't ask you go into my head. This Boromir is really good looking though, thank's for makin him.

It very nice but it seems that it requires Open For Business couse I don't have it installed and Boromir won't install himself.

Sheezzelle,

Did you install him with Clean Installer? It's my understanding that will work. If it doesn't, let me know. The link is here: http://sims2pack.modthesims2.com/

First, are you sure you downloaded the required meshes?

If you have then maybe you could deselect some of the content with Clean installer, and see if he shows up in maxis defaults. If you de-select the hair, you'll have to make sure and fix him in body shop or you'll wind up with a sim with a hole in it's head.

I'm not much of an expert, but this is what I found so far to help.

Hope it helps. Sorry it's not working for you.

I'll just make some adjusts to make a not-so-beautiful face, but maybe you inspired on the book, then he really looks like the son of a King (Even when Denethor was just a Steward to the throne)

Yay, LotR stuff, thank you! And I'm very glad that you managed to include most of the custom content; on the danger of being ungrateful: hunting down meshes tends to take time.

I'm looking very forward to trying this one out, thanks again for creating this!
