Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water. Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle; You put it into a teapot it becomes the teapot. Water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.





--> STORY:

Bruce Lee (Jun Fan, 李振藩, 李小龍; pinyin: Lǐ Zhènfān, Lǐ Xiăolóng; 27 November 1940 – 20 July 1973) was an American-born Chinese Hong Kong actor, martial artist, philosopher, film director, screenwriter, practitioner of Wing Chun and founder of the Jeet Kune Do concept. He is considered by many as the most influential martial artist of the 20th century, and a cultural icon. He was also the father of actor Brandon Lee and of actress Shannon Lee. His younger brother Robert was a musician and member of a popular Hong Kong beat band called The Thunderbirds and was something of a heartthrob in Hong Kong in the 1960s.

Lee was born in San Francisco, California, and raised in Hong Kong until his late teens. His Hong Kong and Hollywood-produced films elevated the traditional Hong Kong martial arts film to a new level of popularity and acclaim, and sparked the second major surge of interest in Chinese martial arts in the West. The direction and tone of his films changed and influenced martial arts and martial arts films in Hong Kong and the rest of the world as well. He is mainly noted for his roles in five feature length films, Lo Wei's The Big Boss (1971) and Fist of Fury (1972); Way of the Dragon (1972), directed and written by Bruce Lee; Warner Brothers' Enter the Dragon (1973), directed by Robert Clouse, and The Game of Death (1978).

Lee became an iconic figure, particularly among the Chinese, as he portrayed Chinese national pride and Chinese nationalism in his movies. He primarily practiced Chinese martial arts ("Kung Fu," in the popular westernized term) particularly Wing Chun.....

V-E-R-Y IMPORTANT


---> You need the HAIR from the Sims 3 CC Blog, or else Bruce Lee will NOT look like in the pictures. Download it here: >> C L I C K <<
The hair is called "amManhairmesh007-[mesh_by_raon]"
(Update: 21.Aug.)


---> I included 2 original SIMS3 items in the download file in order to create Bruce Lee's unique look, That's the "Ballet Slippers" and the "Top Nude Body" converted to EVERY CATEGORY with the help of Delphy's awesome CTU program. You can find the program in this thread -> >http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=348082<
Many thanks to Delphy, without it, Bruce Lee wouldn't be here now

To install .sim files: Put them into "my documents/Electronic Arts/The sims 3/SavedSims" folder

To install .package files: Simply download the "Helper monkey" -> >> C L I C K << and place the included ".package" files in the automatically created "xxx/Sims 3/Mods/Packages" folder and it shows up correctly in the game. If you have problems, then please read the >> FAQ <<


---> Bruce Lee's "everyday" pants is a STORE ITEM!! In order to display the sim correctly i strongly recommend to spend the ridiculously small amount of 75 simpoints to get the item here -> -> >> C L I C K <<
Usually i don't support the Store, but those pants suited Bruce so well that it was a must have for me.. If you really don't want to spend the points or you don't have any free points left, you can also use the regular training pants in black, but it looks crappy, so be warned!


If something doesn't work for you with the download, let me know via PM or in the comments.






Do not deny the classical approach, simply as a reaction, or you will have created another pattern and trapped yourself there.





So that's about it, the legend Bruce Lee is not dead, in fact he is alive and wants to live his dream in your neighbourhood and enhance YOUR sims experience. All i can add is...


Many thanks for the feedback to:

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Meshes needed! This download requires one or more meshes to work properly. Please check the Description tab for information about the meshes needed, then download them below:
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.
