Who is Eric?

Eric is a man's man, a guy's guy. He likes sports, barbecuing with his buddies on the weekend, and monster trucks. But he's not a total meathead - though he'd never admit it around his guy friends, he's got a soft side a mile wide, and desperately wants the white picket fence and minivan life.

He lives happily in Sunset Valley with his beautiful wife, Merit. Though they don't have need for the minivan yet, they sure are enjoying the process.

Custom Content:

While you don't absolutely have to download any of the below files, if you would like Eric to look exactly as he does in my pictures, you will need:

Install Instructions:

Download and extract from the rar file. Place the .SIM file in your My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims\ folder. If you don't have a SavedSims folder, just make one - that's two capital S's and one lowercase s at the end. Open the premade sim bin in CAS in-game to find the sim.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

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

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the sim to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sim file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game, enter Create-a-Sim, and save a sim to the sim bin to create this folder, rather than doing so manually. After that you can close the game and put the .sim file in SavedSims
4. Once the .sim file is in SavedSims, you can load the game, and look for your sim in the premade sims bin in Create-a-Sim.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

vivalakevin - I'm sure there are plenty other people named that who aren't gay porn stars. They're common enough names. Just a coincidence - I'm not into gay porn. :P

Actually - I think he's lovely - and reminds me a bit of a young Gabriel Byrne or a similiar actor. He's definitely going into my neighbourhood.

Heya !!! I think i'm ready for the panties (so many times i had a cold and i didn't know why) but i have a problem with the .sim file.
It tells me that "Could not find a valid directory to install to" and i have tried to install with the TS3 helper Monkey.
Have any ideas ???

Lucina - Install instructions are in the first post. Just put in the directory listed there under My Documents. Don't use the Helper Monkey, and don't double-click it.

If you stick some tinfoil panties on your head so you can see out the legs like eyeholes, maybe that would help?

I love your Sims, HP, they already have a story before entering my game!
I'm afraid Eric will have to be married to Brianne instead of Merit, in my Sunset Valley, though (if he's OK for it!) Brianne seems to have the nerves to endure a guy like Eric, while I have sweeter plans for Merit.
