Download: Xerxes Dolomite  

Hope nobody minds... but I did a thing!

So pixel_trade is currently having a Person Below Me challenge focused on aliens. I just got some new skins -- my first non-Maxis defaults! -- that I wanted to play around with, so I simply started creating a sim based on the most recent prompt... and I kinda liked him. So, I'm submitting him.

Prompt by jens_sims: The person below me will make a slightly chubby adult alien sim with strange face make-up, oddly colored hair, and is a huge sci-fi geek.

Xerxes Dolomite comes from a highly intelligent race of beings who reproduce by budding. His hair may not seem that strange to us -- until you realize that all others of his species have green hair. Because of his "difference," Xerxes was sent on a mission of indefinite duration to study Earthling culture. Although Xerxes views his assignment as a punishment and finds the vast majority of the human race completely insufferable, he must admit that he is fascinated by their mythology. He finds himself spending many sleepless nights breathlessly enraptured in the humans' written speculation on his people and their advanced technology. It's all just so illogical -- so why does Xerxes find so much joy in reading the stuff?

The CC-free version is also (hopefully) basegame compatible. :D

TOU: You may use my sims in your game however you wish, but please don't share them anywhere else or claim them as your own creations. If they do show up in your game I would love to know about it so I can see them; of course you're not required to notify me if they appear in an update but it would make me very happy. :D

Apologies for the Maxis hair, clothing, and makeup; I play a CC-minimal game.

This is my first non-legacy shared sim so I'm veryveryvery nervous. :\
I hope you enjoy! :D

Oooh, I like him! I'm a big sucker for full lips! :D

Hmmm, I'm not really quite sure how to do CC-free aliens... I think you need to download Theo's mod to unlock alien eyes and skintone, so that way you can select your default alien skin instead of the skin itself. I can't remember, though.

oh and happy belated birthday!! I am so bad at doing this on time I swear

Yeah, I have a mod in that unlocks the hidden skins as well as makes them available to all ages (for zombies, werewolves and mannequins), but the problem was that somehow the skin files from the mod were getting packaged as well. I figured out a way to fix it though -- by just making the CC-free version in CAS debug mode, extracting it and then removing the modded skin file temporarily while I package the sim in Body Shop -- just haven't had time to upload it yet! Thanks for your advice -- maybe this mod will allow the same functionality without the added problem.

And thanks for birthday wishes too!! Don't worry about it, I still have family members who haven't acknowledged my birthday yet. :P

Aw I love him. I was expecting like neon hair but I like your version better, nice little twist. XD

Yeah sorry, I'm kind of a newb so I'm still working on DLing hairs. :\ Hope it wasn't too disappointing!

whattt I love this guy. what's this about. I want to make things.

It is about pixel_trade and it is the hip thing that all the cool kids are doing.

You write a prompt here and the prompt above yours is the one you have to make. Then you post it to the collection post. Happiness ensues.

Lilzy my sims are so pretty now. They have skinzzzzz. And eyes! And magic. And now I'm looking for hairs.
