This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

So I made a Sherlock sim some time ago and he's just been hanging in my sim bin for the longest time. I've constantly fiddled with him and now I think I'm finally satisfied. He is based on the BBC's Sherlock, in which Sherlock Holmes is played by the lovely Benedict Cumberbatch. Anyways, some people have shown a little interest in him lately so I've taken some pictures, packaged him up, and am putting him up here for download. I do hope you like him. I did the best I could to make him look like ol' Benedict, but that man has one beautiful funky face and it is sure hard to simmify. Also, he sadly has no John yet.







I hope you like him!

P.S. If you are in desperate need of a John sim, there is a lovely one here by xel_squirgle_ox.

P.S.S. If you are having trouble installing, please try using the clean installer and see if that works.

  • 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.

You did an amazing job, considering Cumberbatch's bone structure! My hood will be thankful to have a detective.

That's an awesome sim. Too bad Pets is required, but your work is really good!

Thanks everyone for the compliments! I'm so glad that people like him, and I'm sorry about the Pets requirement. If I can find a way to fix that I'll upload a new version.

I recognized this sim immediately when I first saw him modelling some eyes on your blog. He looks just like Sherlock. Such an awesome job!

You have done astoundingly well! I would stab myself in the leg if this was for Sims 3, in fact, I might even have to breakout my old copy because of this. Keep up the good work on amazing Sims!

He's so handsome!!!!! I couldn't wait to download this, but when I saw it was for pets I lost all hope to have him in my neighborhood. Could you possibly find a way to include him for other expansion packs? If you could I will be FOREVER grateful!!! Thanks.

Downloaded this from your tumblr a while ago. It's quite epic. He was in my last tumblr post (http://playthesims.tumblr.com/), and I linked to your page. ^_^

(Also: This is made of win. Just saying. He's currently bugging Mrs. Hudson and setting fire to things on a regular basis.)

Hello! First I will say how much I love this! *^_^* It's done so good! I was hoping someone would make this but no one has tried yet so I am so happy you made it!

Second I hope you might try to make John. I hope it doesn't seem greedy of me but I really think you would make a good version of him!

Sorry for my English! *>_<* But I hope you understand it good. And again thank you so much for this amazing work!!
