Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Vincent (a.k.a Vinny Rourke)

Vinny Rourke has been Sunset Valley's first and only private detective, ever since the mystery of the Landgrabb's missing Victorian statues. He may be a grumpy man, but he sure does get what his clients want, whether it involves finding somone's missing mouthwash to a gun fight in an abandoned apartment. Vinny used to work for Sunest Valley's police force, however, they never really took his views into account and never agreed to his tough decisions.




Traits:
- Brooding
- Brave
- Grumpy
- Perceptive
- Rebellious

Lifetime Wish:
- Persuasive Private Eye

Favourites:

Food:
- Cheesesteak

Music:
- Country

Colour:
- Black



Sliders Used:

If you want Vinny to look exactly as he does in the screenshots, he does required a few sliders if you want him to look exactly the way he looks in the pictures above, or else his facial features will snap back if you decide to tweak some of them! You'll need the following if you want Vinny to look exactly as he does as I have showed him in the pictures:

- I've used Twallan's MasterController for it's Slider Multipliers, which raises the maximum and minimum range for the sliders in CAS (I have used the multiplier x3 to create Vinny's facial features, and x2 for the body sliders such as weight and muscle mass), and it increases the number of sliders the can be used in CAS (which is necessary for the sliders I have used) If you don't want to use MasterController, you can use Awesomemod , or aWT's Slider Hack (please check your latest patch and see if it's compatible with any of the three mods listed above before downloading any one of them!).

Here are the extra sliders I have used to create Vinny. You don't need /every/ one of these, however, if you want him to look exactly like he is in the screenshots, this is what you will need in your game:

- Bella3lek4's Sliders
- Chin To Neck Slider by Wotjek
- Tum Tum's Chin Cleft Slider
- Johna's Head Slider

Genetics CC:

- Lapiz's Hair Mesh #10 - Blue
- Tamo's Ultra-Plain Tricolour Default Eyes
- Nilou's Bubblegum Face Replacements
- HP's Increased Texture Detail Body Replacements
- Simple Life's Beard 1
- TummyZa's Custom Body Hair Overlay

Clothing CC:

Vinny is packaged with base game clothing, however, his trousers seen in his Everyday, Formal and Outerwear are from Supernatural, and the shoes seen in his Everyday and Formal are from Showtime. Here are the extra bits of clothing I have used on Vinny for the screenshots, so grab them if you really want them!

- Pixel Things Battleface
- Kitty Klan's Eye Baggage
- Astraea Nevermore's Simple Fingerless Gloves
- Uirty's Cigarette Accessory
- Kitty Klan's Tribal Mash-Up Tattoo
- EA Store's Le Cirque Nouveau- All Around Performer Top
- EA Store's Too Cool for Art School Hoodie

Vinny is packaged with Base Game clothing and hair!

So that's it guys! I really hope you guys like him and I will be very happy to hear your thoughts on him! Enjoy!

Additional Credits:
- Special thank you to everybody in the "The Sims 3 Male Pictures" thread that click on the "Love" button below some screenies I posted of Vinny!
- Thanks to my friend, Ian, for helping me think of a great name for this Sim!
- Thanks to thewatcheruatu for letting me know their fondness for Vinny and how much they wanted me to upload him!

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.

He's lovely! And with so much personality. Makes me miss the game.
He reminds me of lackadaisy's Viktor Vasco - with much less fur.

Wow! You did a tremendous job bringing out his personality in his features alone; it's very impressive! Love all of his favourites, especially that his food is cheesesteak. It goes so perfectly with a P.I.

You've inspired me to do some personality-based sim creations. Great work!

He has *so* much character! I love his aesthetic and cartoon-like stylization. He looks like he could be from different game entirely. He is what sims should look like IMO .He also kind of reminds me a bit like a tintin or team fortress 2 character, which is always good in my book:D. And you could tell his life just by looking at him, which is a hard thing to do artistically .You just can see that he a serious, no- nonsense cop dedicated to his work. Very .

You know, your side-by-side comparisons point out an interesting EA morph bug: the naked muscle mass is higher than the clothed muscle mass. Compare his everyday and formal outfits to his sleepwear and swimwear outfits: *without* clothes, his thighs are thicker than *with* clothes.

Fascinating!

Obviously this isn't your fault, but EA's. =)

Vincent is wonderful, so much personality and character. You've done a fantastic job, if I saw him somewhere else I wouldn't have believed that it's a sim. (Meant as a compliment) He looks like a character from some noir detective story.

Oh wow, I really will be calling cousin Vinnie now!


That was a reference to a cheat in SimCity 3000, by the way.
