Guide to Making Sims Faces
2:18 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

MacNN has pointed out a link to a guide to adding new faces to the cast of characters in Maxis' The Sims, recently released by Aspyr Media. While the game itself is quite flexible on the PC side, due to many available editing tools, these utilities did not make the platform jump along with the game. However, with some slightly arcane commands and an image editor capable of generating .BMP (bitmap) files, you should be in business.


This guide, created by 'Agrijag999,' is a step-by-step tutorial for adding new faces to the existing Sims models. The process seems slightly intimidating at first, but is straightforward. As a bonus, the author has included a pack of ready-made faces and one complete skin which will put Dana Scully (of the X-Files, of course) into your Sims game. Perhaps she can investigate those ghosts that keep tromping through your garden at midnight...


Check out the tutorial for more information. We have not heard of any plans to port the PC Sims editing tools to the Mac OS, but several of them are open-source, so this is a possibility for the future.
