Create A Sim is the game mode to create your Sims from the ground up.
Everything about them—their age, their name, their physical appearance and clothes—can be freely altered here! The decisions are not entirely cosmetic, as you'll also choose Traits for your Sims which will affect their goals in life and behaviors. For specific information about creating pets if you have the Cats and Dogs Expansion Pack installed, please see the Create a Pet page.
Creating a Sim is much more advanced than before! Before you just had the basics, now you have many more options to create the Sim to look excatly like you choose. Now you can manipulate any body part including the abdomen, chest, legs, arms, and feet. Each Sim is also able to have more wardrobes per category; everyday wear, formal wear, sleepwear, and athletic wear.
For the purposes of this guide, we'll be following the life of one Christine National, a distant cousin of Kelly National, whose life we previously saw at IGN Entertainment many years ago. Before we can jump into Christine's life, we need to create her.
