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


Preston is the youngest of seven children. His mom is a Spanish American and lived there all her life. His dad on the other hand was from India, but moved to America because of the better job prospects, since he is a pediatrician.

As Preston was growing up, his dad saw the potential in him to follow in his footsteps. He wanted Preston to be in the medical field as well. Many of his other siblings just 'weren't cut out' for it (or already stated it wasn't happening), but his dad saw the spark in him right for a position in the medical field.

Preston really didn't want to disappoint his dad because they were very close. However, medicine wasn't his passion. He loves any and everything to do with computers! If only his dad could understand. To this day, he enjoys fiddling with his computer, and more than anything, his career as a video game developer.

He doesn't always feel like he fits in... unlike most twenty six year olds, you won't see him hanging at his local bar or going to too many parties. He is a rather a loner. He isn't a loner by choice necessarily, but because he doesn't feel that people... have enough depth. Most people just live life as it is, but Preston contemplates life and what it means in general. It's not an easy concept to explain, but he feels it to the core of his being.

Traits:
Computer whiz
loner
workaholic
genius
brooding








Custom Content Used:

Contacts (by Breyete)
Eyebrows 15 (by Subaxi)
Facial Hair (by Creaturefear)
Djin Hair by Lapiz Lazuli
Pants: Stone Island Jeans (by all about style- to the right, second one down)
Default skin (ESkin-nAtural by teru k)

Custom content/clothes note:

The skin I used on Preston is default, but he should look good with any skin, though his features may be slightly altered.

Aside from his jeans, all of his clothes are made by EA. He has clothes from Generations, Showtime, and late night, and seasons is needed for his outerwear, of course. Also, the brooding trait is from supernatural.

SLIDERS


sliders for chin width, brow thickness (by bella3lek4)
chin cleft (by mybluebook)
Body Sliders (by Jonha)

Eyelashes and its sliders (by sclub)
Make sure to download both the sliders, and the male eyelashes at the bottom of the download page!


IMPORTANT:

I use master controller as my slider hack to get his face to look like this (facial sliders on x3, body sliders same as default), or you can use some other slider hack. MC is found here

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.

Um...that is odd. I didnt miss any cc. What would make him look bad would be the skin. Do you have a picture of him?

Default Facial settings not working as intended?
This Sims is so good looking!
OP You are awesome!

However I encounter a problem after installing all cc and sliders.
His look becomes like this: http://i.imgur.com/VvaA6mF.png
And his head seems smaller than intended: http://i.imgur.com/2jBR8OM.png

I searched about the white eyelids. It's due to outdated version of SClub sliders. (which can be solved by changing color in game manually)
But I didn't find the solutions for problems like facial character scale and head size.
(And the game seems didn't recognize the eyebrow settings, it chooses default ones instead of Subaxi's. I can change it manually though)

Here are the cc and sliders I installed for this sims: http://i.imgur.com/LeS2rN0.png
I have set Nraas with facial slider x3 and body slider x1

Sorry for the trouble and long posts!
