Presenting something slightly different, this time
Not a celebrity sim, but he's one of my current favourite guys to play. Presenting... Douglas Logan!



Doug has always been considered the "strange" guy in the neighbourhood. With his appearance, long hair and black make-up, he's both a fascinating and rather weird character. His passion for the occult, ghosts and the afterlife, together with his habit to create strange machines in his garage, always left the other sims quite suspicious about his real intentions. Many rumors circulated about him when he joined the Ghost Hunter career, but Doug never cared.
He loves his job and, despite the rumors, he's a very nice and lovely person. He's a dreamer and a hopeless romantic, and hopes to find, someday, someone to share his passions with.
In the meantime, he dedicates lots of affection to his motorcycle, to whom he affectionately refers as "Lester".


Traits: handy, eccentric, vehicle enthusiast, hopeless romantic, loser.

The sim is a young adult. Just put the file in your SavedSims folder found in Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3. If you don't have that folder, just create it yourself.
Should work with base game version, just make sure to have the latest patch installed, as he uses a feature (smudged make up) and a trait (vehicle enthusiast) that are only available for fully patched games.
Little note: If you don't have Ambitions, the "eccentric" trait won't show up... feel free to change it with whatever you feel fits with him

Hope you'll like him! :D
Feel free to use in your pictures, videos, stories and whatever, just don't claim him as your own and do not re-upload. If you use him somewhere, would be cool to see a link, I'd love to see what you'd make of this guy

And here's the...

Custom content list:

-Skintone by Kanno, made non-default by Araenna (download the non-default one)
-Tiffany Glaze default replacement eyes by escand (if you don't want to change your default, you can download the contact lenses version found in the same link)
-Hair originally by Cazy (dead blog), edited by Anubis (download from here ).
-Stubble by bocboc256
-Eyebags by Robokitty
-Goggles by EsmeraldaF
-Eyebrows by Hysterical Paroxysm
-Spiked bracelets by Aikea Guinea
-Jeans by Aikea Guinea
-W.A.S.P. shirt used for the Athletic outfit by me

Mods and hacks used - PLEASE READ:
-AwesomeMod's x3 slider hack. Also needed to remove the limit to the number of custom sliders you can have in your game. If you don't want to download a huge hack as AwesomeMod, you can just take jonha's slider hack, which just removes the custom slider limit.
-Custom sliders by Ahmad. All of them :D
-UI Mod by Rez Delnava: needed for the non-default skintone to show up. Follow the instructions, download just one .package file. Personally, I have the "UI CasBasics Mod 5x10 Right Adjust", but you can choose the one you prefer.
EDIT: the UI mod is not updated for patch 1.17/Late Night, however you don't really need it anymore for the non-default skintone to show up: if you install non-default skintones, in fact, the game will still recognize them: read the note added by the MTS staff on the top of the UI Mod page to have more infos on how non-default skintones work in game
EDIT #2: added a version of the sim packaged with default skin.

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.

His mustache and beard are not showing up on my game, which option/CC did you use?

This signature has been censored because of the 13 year old badly written sentimentalism. -.-

LOL, Nicholas Rogers!!! I absolutely love that guy! He's been a crush of mine even since I was a kid, and I'll admit I also made a sim version of him in my game XD
Never thought of the similarities between these two, though, haha! Probably made Doug like that without even noticing

Well, if you want him to look exactly like in the screenshot, yes. However, if you don't download everything, the game will just replace the missing items with whatever you have =)
I strongly recommend you to install at least the skintone/non default skintone mod, though, otherwise he'll show up with black skin in game! Also, if you don't want to install the slider hacks... don't try to edit his features in CAS, or the hacked values will snap back to default ones and the sim may look really weird!

Nope, the CC is not included, you'll have to download it by yourself!
Thanks, btw!

Aaaw, my bad, I forgot to add a link for the beard, sorry! It's by bocboc256 and can be found here.
Added the link to the main post, too, sorry again!

Aaaaaaand... huge thanks everyone for the very nice comments!

I'm kinda relieved too hear you know him. Would've been hilarious but also deeply disturbing if you made this sim without ever seeing Nicholas Rogers.

I also know him from my childhood. Let me guess. Tarabas? The first time I saw PF I was actually young enough to not even realize how hot he was. Still liked him better than that prince though

Douglas actually reminds me of my former son-in-law. He made some of the same expressions, had the same hairstyle and beard. It's uncanny! Usually a nice guy, but also a loser! Thanks for sharing this character!

You mean Russell Brand. I love Russell, he's cool. And you're right, this guy does look like him!

Anyway, shouldn't you also add the icon of some of the items and jobs being from Ambitions; that you'll need that for the guy to also work correctly.

Hahah, yep! I did discover him as Tarabas! And same here, I liked him more than the other guy, hahah!

Thanks to all the others! Would you believe me if I say that I had no idea of who is Russell Brand 'till five seconds ago, though?

As for adding the icon for Ambitions... I didn't originally think about it, as the sim itself should work fine with base game. What I mean is... I didn't give him any other item from Ambitions that could affect the way he will look in game for people who don't have that expansion pack
Obviously, for people without Ambitions, he wouldn't have the "eccentric" trait and he couldn't join the ghost hunter career, but that was just part of the background story I gave him... everyone is free to change that story and play him in any other way. If that's gonna be a problem, though, I'm going to add the Ambitions icon .____.

Put dreadlocks on him and he'll also look like Ronon Dex from Stargate Atlantis. :D

I'll definately be back to download him but don't have time to hunt down all that CC right now.

One question, he WILL work without the slider hack unless I try to edit him in CAS, right?
