I went and grabbed some CC (skintones, eye replacements, etc.) and it's looking better. I even found elf ears. It may have some potential, but I don't quite "get" the gameplay yet. I'm going to have to wait awhile to play again, I hope there will be even better CC by the time I'm back. The CAS part is excellent, but I do miss the ability to customize colors.

I recommend a trial save with a generic Sim to test the gameplay and get a feel for how everything works.
Once you have some time to play thru a few scenarios then you can make a new save with a special Sim you have created.

So I caved today and bought Sims4.  I couldn't pass it up for $29.99 at Best Buy - was the last one too!  I'm hoping to fire it up tonight or tomorrow.

Cool
That was an excellent bargain! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Cool

So with CC, I can make some amazing sims:










But I'm still not sure what to do with them when I'm done. We need a lot more men's period clothing. And the feet (shudder) block feet again, really EA? Sims 3 feet were better.

Very nice lady Cool

About the feet, I don't know how many artist I've seen hiding or just doing a poor job on painting fingers and feet. They are just horrible sometimes.

Well today I had a less awful time with Sims 4. I'm still not ready to give up Sims 3, but adding CC, and figuring a few things out made it somewhat better.

It seemed appropriate since Joseph aged up to an elder, to do a little tweaking of my Joseph Tewanima and Lanara characters from Sims 3. The best part of Sims 4 clearly is sims creation. That's always been my favorite part of the game since Sims 1, and I'm not half bad at it if I do say so myself.

Here's the ever-lovely Lanara, I had to go with green rather than golden. There are some other skintones available, but I think they need some work. If I get into the game enough, I might do it myself. Elf ears, custom hair and eyelashes make her a vision for Sims 4.







Joeseph is quite hunky in Sims 4.




They fell in love as if they were made for each other (well, they were). The movements are smoother than Sims 3 in game, but the clipping weirdness is worse.




Zhaan in game.



Camera angles are driving me bonkers though, it's hard to get the shots. I set it for Sims 3 style, but then I realized I have a modded camera in Sims 3. I had a bit of a glitch with the elf ears in game, but I couldn't seem to get the cas.fulleditmode to work quite right so I could remove them. Also, when they came home from work, their thumbnails showed them as still at work. A lot to get used to, but for the first time, it was more fun than frustrating.

Oasis Springs has some charm and I've found some nice houses for it, but that ugly initial screen kills me every time. Wild, Wild West World or even EA's western worlds for Sims 3 are so far above it. The fact that it is not an open world really bothers me too. This view isn't so bad, if I could edit everything, roads, etc. I think it would open up new possibilities. Maybe in the future.

Thought I'd do some comparisons of Sims 3 vs Sims 4

I'm on a revived LOTR Kick, Galixi 1 is making a beautiful world:

http://forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/811050/lord-of-the-rings-world#latest

So I thought I'd do Arwen and Aragorn in both versions.

Sims 4 Versions:


Close-ups (I really miss my skin and eye defaults that the patch borked.):




With CC, Arwen looks lovely and in character. I don't have what I need to make Aragorn, but he looks great if too modern. I have no options for a fantasy or medieval world for them.

Sims 3 versions:


No CC needed, she could use longer hair, but there's no end to that madness. I'm not completely happy with Aragorn, I may redo him.

But I can play these two in a world that fits. I can lose myself in the moment

Lovely sims.
I like how Awrin a lot.
And Aragon, I can see where he looks - too soft? Maybe the if the cheekbones were more prominent?
But he's awesome anyway.

Well done!

I do use extended sliders in Sims 3, there aren't reliable ones for Sims 4 yet. I can't create the details as well in Sims 4.

Here's a close-up of Aragorn in Sims 3:



Just for fun here's Aragorn and Arwen in Sims 2:


Again, lots of CC. I like this Aragorn, but I'm not sure about Arwen. The skin is too shiny. I always meant to redo her, but never did. I don't have these anymore. They were some of the first sims 2 sims I made.

I like your Sims 4 versions of Aragorn and Arwen best.

So here's another comparison. Tom Bombadil and Goldberry, minor characters in the LOTR books, didn't make the cut into the movies at all.

I made them first for Sims 2, they were so much fun to play:






Lots of CC of course, much of it recolored by me. The colors that Tom Bombadil wears are very specific.


Sims 3 version, I just made them for the LOTR world:






No CC, but CAST makes it very simple to get the colors right. I found myself missing some of the CAS improvements in Sims 4 and it can be slow creating sims. I took some liberties, Goldberry has light green skin and I made her a fairy.


Sims 4 version, I was amazed to find a perfect hat!







I still miss CAST and my skin and eye defaults, but I like a lot of things about the new CAS system. Lots of CC, like Sims 2.

I think that if Sims 4 had an open world like Sims 3 or even big, interesting and customizable worlds as Sims 2, I could really get on board. The way they've sliced the "world" into such tiny pieces is claustrophobic to me and I can never get lost in the game.

One more comparison. This has really gotten me thinking about my simming experience overall. In time there will be custom content so we can make fantasy sims. I could create and recolor hair and clothing, I did it before for Sims 2, but I'm not motivated because there is no world to put them in.

Galadriel in Sims 2 (I never made Celeborn):


In many ways, she is my favorite. This was the first Sims creation I ever shared anywhere. She looks so sad and wistful.

Galadriel and Celeborn for Sims 3:




Finally for Sims 4:
