I'm not sure I'll actually create and share any sims here. I loved bodyshop and created many specialized sims with unique body types, linked skintones and clothing. Those of you who know my pre-hacked persona can find what remains of my creations at Mod the Sims. There's lots of neat sims there.

I really miss sliders and shoes. Here are two quick sims I started. Unfortunately, you have to complete them in one setting, they can't be saved for later. I would always start with a random maxis base and tweak it.

Bodyshop can be modded here's a link

Some tricks to a better use of The Sims Bodyshop, the built-in tool of The Sims 2 to create sims and some other stuff....


F3 Angle of view –Press the F3 key together with right mouse's button to change the angle of view and perspective

F5 Custom background –Press F5 key to change the background and load your custom one. To customize the background you need an image in  .bmp file type with a 1024x768px resolution, and you should place it under C:\Documents and Setting\UserNamePC\My Documents\EAGAMES\The Sims 2\ with the name  userBkg.bmp

F6 Change sim pose (this is applied until next sim edit - for example edit clothes, hair and so -

F7 Zoom out –Full body view-

F8 Zoom in –Face view-

F9 Only sim - if you press F9 key you can hide the bodyshop interface/panel and view only the sim


There was a useful program Sims Body Shop Mechanic but I haven't been able to get it set up with the new game configuration.

It's all starting to come back to me now.

The human skins are by Enayla and Goldbeere (freckles). The robot skin is by Sherahbim.

Thank you clay, I am totally unfamiliar with body shop. The sims and skins you've posted are fantastic. I am looking forward to seeing more of your progress.

Love the great Sims Clay.

I've moved your thread to the Sims 2 Sim Creation section.

The EA defaults are truly ugly in the Sims 2. I can't play the game without default replacements of everything. There's tons of great options at Mod the Sims. In these pictures, I just grabbed random sims from the bin. The defaults I use are Enayla for skin and eyes, Bruno for lipsticks and someone else for eyshadow and blush.

These were all taken in bodyshop using the function buttons in the first post. I do want to change the background, but I'm not quite sure how in this new configuration.
