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

She is extremely lazy. But loyal. If you watch True Blood....SHHH!! Please don't discuss the plot in this thread. We don't wanna spoil it for folks who haven't seen it yet, right? Right. Good. Extra special thanks to all the custom content creators mentioned below, and to the actors, writers, and entire crew that makes True Blood. Particularly Kristin Bauer van Straten who portrays Pam so well.


Please do not redistribute this sim or altered versions of her. Thank you.


Recommended but Not Included
  • Fangs! Pam is packaged as a human. She'll grow fangs when you turn her into a vampire in your game. You must have the Nightlife Expansion Pack installed in order to make her a vampire.

  • Default-Replacement vampire skin overlay. By default, Sims2 vampires have a blueish tinge which is wrong for True Blood vamps. I highly recommend TSN's Normal looking NL Vampire Skin Overlay (vampireNoBlueNoRedEye version) if you have Nightlife and plan to make Pam a vampire.

  • Maxis Skin. This sim uses default Maxis skin. If you have default-replacement skins installed, please download the light non-default Maxis skin here and put it on her in CAS.

  • Clothes. Pam is packed in the red jacket and black jeans outfit pictured. This outfit came with the Apartment Life Expansion Pack. Choose something else for her if you don't have AL. The other clothes pictured are from various expansion/stuff packs, and I also highly recommend Sentate's Vampy Outfits and Cynnix's Pam clothes. Be sure to check out Cynnix's Pam sim while you're there. I made my Pam sim long ago and am posting her now because some folks have asked for her, but I'm sure many will prefer Cynnix's Pam.


Included Content
  • Pam Sim

  • Eyes by Revoye

  • Brows by Rensim, which I recoloured to a darker shade. Eyeshadow and blush also by Rensim. Since her site is down, you can find some of her old creations in this GOS thread. Thanks to Rensim for allowing me to include the recoloured brows, and for pointing out that GOS link!

  • Lipstick by Helaene, which I recoloured to a brighter shade. Eyeliner also by Helaene. Thanks to Helaene for letting me include the recoloured lipstick! In fact, I've actually included 2 lipstick recolours - Pam is packed with bright red lips, and I also put some bright pink lips in the .rar file so you can match her lips to her outfit.

  • Hair mesh and texture by Agustin, recoloured by me. The mesh and recolour are included in the .Sims2Pack file, and I've also included my mesh animation fix in the .rar file. For more information about the mesh fix, please see my recolour thread.


Free Tips
  • Install with Clean Installer to avoid "missing EP" error messages.
  • Pam requires no Expansion Packs, but you'll need the Nightlife EP to make her a vampire.


Special Thanks
  • To all the creators whose content I've used, edited, mangled.
  • To the folks who recognized Pam in my other threads and asked me to upload her.
  • To the tumblr folks who helped decide which outfit to pack her in.
  • To everyone involved in making True Blood, especially Kristin Bauer van Straten, whose artwork blows me away. I am embarrassed to post this sim considering the subject herself could doubtlessly do a much better job. Oh well. Enjoy!


(SHHH!)

  • 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.

Well done (she really looks amazing here)!

I really hope, that you are not mad at me for recommending generalzoi's Vampire Fangs for All, for all those people who don't own NL but still want to give her some nice Vampire Fangs.

I am a black market, money-grubbing Pariah.

Great work! Pam is one of my favorite in the show and you've got her spot on. What I love about your sims is that you manage to you make them really similar to original without tons of custom content and you keep the maxis matchy feel to it. Which I appreciate a lot, thanks
Bowties are cool.

Aww, thanks for the sweet comments, everyone! You guys are awesome.

Kuroo_Hazama: I don't mind at all! Thank you for linking to those fangs. I didn't mention them because I think making her a true vampire with Nightlife is MUCH more fun than using fake fangs - and because True Blood vamps don't show their fangs most of the time anyway - but they're a great option for folks who want them.

So in case anyone missed the link - if you don't have Nightlife but still want fangs for Pam, try generalzoi's Vampire Fangs for All.
