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

"Thomas Lee Bass (born October 3, 1962), best known as Tommy Lee, is an American musician, and founding member of glam metal band Mötley Crüe. As well as being the band's long-term drummer, Lee founded rap-metal band Methods of Mayhem, and has pursued solo musical projects. He has been married to model Elaine Starchuk and actresses Heather Locklear and Pamela Anderson."

(Wikipedia)

A while ago (meaning: in December ) Nicole Eads asked me if I was going to make a Tommy Lee sim. Aaaaaaaand... he's finally here! So you can finally give Nikki Sixx his "terror twin" and have an almost complete Motley Crue band (now we only need a Mick Mars, and I guess I'm gonna work on him, too )
Loved making him... and I hope you're gonna appreciate this sim as much as I do! =)

The sim should work with base game, just make sure to have your game updated to the latest patch... or at least the one that came out with Ambitions Expansion Pack, as the sim uses the opacity tool for make up that came with that patch and I don't know if there could be compatibility problems if you don't have that one!


Here's the...

Custom content list

Sim:
Face skintone by Kanno (non-default version by Araenna)
Tiffany Glaze default replacement eyes by escand (contacts also found on the same link, if you don't want to change the defaults you already have!)
Nose contour and tired eyes make-up by Arisuka (the sim uses the blush version)
Eyebags by Arisuka (layered, number 2)
Lipstick by Channy & Vivin, The Sims World (scroll down the page 'till you find the "Megaupload" and "Rayfile" links)
Untamed Stallion Eyebrows by Arisuka
Soulpatch default replacements (stubble) by Robokitty
Subtle wrinkles by Arisuka (facemask version)
Hair by collin2

The sim is packaged WITHOUT custom hair or non-default skintones!
If you decide to use Kanno's non-default version of the skintone by Araenna you'll have to select it yourself! Rez Delnava's mod for non-default skintones is not updated anymore, so to scroll through non-default skintones you can use your mouse wheel... or download Anach's CAS skins mod, which is basically the updated version of Rez Delnava's mod.
As for the hair, I used base game hair to package the sim, but you can find all the hairstyles I used in the pics linked on this post!

Clothes, accessories & tattoos:
Self Deception pants by Aikea Guinea
Japanese Sleeves + Backpiece by XJonasX
Nose piercing by sleepless angel (single piercings set)

All other clothes are from the base game.



Other stuff shown in screenshots, not included with the sim:
Cross necklace by Sasha J at XM Sims
Raon Male Hair 24 converted by TumTum
Man In The Box - Peggy hair converted by Aikea Guinea (shown in screenshots: Missbonbon's retexture)
Cigarette accessory by uirty (linking to Mediafire... thanks Tommy.Killer for the link!)

Mods and sliders used:
AwesomeMod by Pescado, with x3 slider hack. Recommended if you decide to change the sim's features.
Sliders by Ahmad. All of them =)
Chin to neck slider by Heiret
Head shape slider by jonha

As usual, HUGE thanks to all the great people in Creator Feedback Forum for helping me!

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.

Thank! It's very very good job. He's look very close to the original.
In my opinion only one thing can make he better - slider for fractured nose.

Very well done. I've always wished that sims w/ pronounced cheekbones would actually be more noticable. You're using a slider multiplier, right? Cause I can't get that look on any of my sims.
Again, looks great. If I dl'd celebs I'd dl him.

Lol, so true! Actually, seems that looking like serial killers in mugshots is a common feature of Motley Crue members. Vince Neil's mugshot was about as scary as Tommy's XD

@alishiagambino: yep, I'm using AwesomeMod's slider multiplier! It's really useful for getting more extreme features =)

Thanks everyone, by the way!

Mötley Crüe forever! Your Nikki is amazing, as Vinnie-girl I just loved Vince and now Tommy One thing that got my attention was (I dunno is it just my game or do I miss some sliders) but his nose doesn't look that crooked as it should be? Like in one of SOLA promos you can see clearly that he got his ass kicked in youth, hahaha. But otherwise, pure love towards T-Bone

Thank you so much!

You're right about the nose, it isn't as crooked as it should be, but the problem is that there are no crooked/broken nose sliders for the game, as far as I know, and I don't think that using make up to simulate the effect would have looked good, so I decided to leave it as it was.
