Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Farhan is a bit misunderstood. He's a bit of a loner and people tend to mistake this for aloofness when he's actually a really nice guy. He likes things a certain way and can often be found buried in a book.

I created Farhan a while ago and decided that I'd share him on here so he got some minor facial adjustments and a bit of a re-vamp to get him ready for your game. I really hope you like him. Again, he's one of my favourites

Farhan is 100% basegame and comes with default hair, skin, and expansion clothing* and eyes but he'd really appreciate it if you downloaded the following to help him feel more like himself:

Hair: The Sims Store]The Sims Store
Skin: Club Crimsyn
Eyes: Club Crimsyn
Moles: Daluved1

Slider Mods:
AwesomeMod(x2 Sliders)
Jasumi's Lip Fatness Slider
Jasumi's Brow Ridge Slider
aWT's Jawline Set
aWT's Lip Set
aWT's Nose Set

*My game has no issue with .sim files with clothing from an other pack and simply loads them in default clothes but apparently some people do have issues. If you download him without owning the noted expansions, he should be okay but he might cause a crash.

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.

I really like him, but I'm wondering something. Is he wearing the pants from Late Night? If so, you might need to change the requirement. Last time I downloaded a sim on here that had an expansion pack clearly needed, my game crashed in CAS. Just letting you know incase someone runs into the problem.

Telishathompson Often creators package the sims with base game meshes only (I always do that), even if in pics they'd wear EP/SP content (it's a sim download after all, so the clothing isn't really that relevant, the styling in pics to me is just about representing and complementing the story and style of the sim). So this is handy because anyone can download the sim without downloading a bunch of other CC they wouldn't download otherwise, just in order to make the sim work.
But this of course needs a very clear mentioning, like "this sim is packaged with base game clothing and hair".

Great work!

Your sim is the first one I've looked into that I've noticed uses custom sliders (the ones by Jasumi and aWT) and I was wondering if these are required to be installed for the sim to look correct?

I have little knowledge of custom sliders, but I'd assume without them installed the sim would not have the correct appearance? I was wondering especially as I'm considering releasing a sim I made, but think I might further benefit from these sliders first.

If they're a requirement, particularly aWT's, then it may affect whether I decide to use them or not (for my own sim, that is).

Thanks very much!

Thanks for all the comments I'm glad you like him.

Telishathompson - From what I remember, he's packed base-game but I'll double check.

Maeldor - He'll look as he does as long as you don't try to change any sliders in CAS...I'm not 100% on pass-downs though.

Excellent! Thanks for the reply. That's great to hear. I'll definitely have a try with these sliders myself to see if I can improve my sim further, and be comforted by the fact he'll look right to everyone else even without the sliders, as long as they don't try to edit him

I had no trouble installing him even though I didn't have his expansion pack. He's very handsome. He also has very good genetics. Sometimes sims with sliders don't mix well with sims used with other sliders. His children always come out very nice looking. He's sometimes in my game but he's always in a special sim bin I keep to make sure that my randomly generated townies have a few lookers.

He looks very real...especially the light eyes. I used to live in his part of the world and have seldom seen Sims like him. He could be Afghan or Pakistani. I always meant to do a series of Afghan clothing meshes after my Indian series was done, but except for some Sims1 Afghan dresses at TSR, I never got around to it and now my eyesight is too bad to try meshing in Sims3.
