So, I've been playing World of Warcraft almost as long as I've been playing Sims 2. (Sims 2 came out Sept 2004, WoW came out in November). I play on a roleplaying server (Feathermoon), so each of my characters has a colored backstory and personality. Almost all roleplaying, though, is text-based, since the models are limited in what they can do unless they're fighting. There's a lot of time with the avatars just standing and staring at each other.  tongue

Enter Sims 2, where the models can do pretty much anything (well, the fighting pales to WoW, but that's to be expected)! I like to recreate my World of Warcraft characters as closely as I can. Sometimes I just like to take screenshots, but sometimes it's fun to set up their personalities and all and then see how they interact with everyone else. I use and abuse SimPE a lot to give them memories, hobbies, likes & dislikes, etc.

In this thread, i'll post my screenshots from WoW, followed by screenshots from the Sims, so you can judge how well or poorly I did. Wink

Corrienda and Galedorin
Corrienda is my night elf druid, and Galedorin is her warrior boyfriend. WoW screenshot:


I am very grateful to marvine & Beosboxboy for their huge bodybuilder mesh!! Sims screenshots:


Here are a couple random other ones. You can click the link to see a picture of their model as they look in game right now.
Zharia, human warrior:

She's changed her hair since I did this Sim, but she specifically requested the big old tattoo on her face, something that cannot be represented in WoW.

Moonfalora, night elf druid:


Kaetta, gnome mage. First the WoW screenshot, then the Sims one:


Tarquin, human rogue and Ceil, night elf rogue:

He's grown a beard in the mean time, and I can't remember why on earth I put her in a dress. Oh well.

Lightlance, dwarf warrior:

I'd kind of like to redo him, but I guess he's not bad.

Stormforged, night elf warrior:

DEFINITELY want to redo him. He deserves to be at least a LeanBB.

And here's a random draenei Sim, not based on anyone, but included because I'm so damn proud of the tail and horns:

(Still working on the chintacles though, as well as anything that's not a floor-length dress tongue)

Duerma & Pizmo
Duerma is my narcoleptic gnome warlock. Pizmo is her husband. Here's some WoW screenshots first:


And now the Sims! (My apologies for the poor quality of pictures - I realized I had my settings set to crappy AFTER I took them all. *facepalm*)


Here's a picture of Duerma playing with their daughter - something that can't be represented at all in WoW:


Sadly, when my computer crashed, I lost a lot of the custom content I used for these three, so they aren't displaying right. SO SAD.  Cry

I've merged all your replies to yourself into one thread. Next time, can you please use the modify button to edit your post, instead of replying to yourself three times within a couple of hours? We generally like people to wait for 24 hours before replying instead of modifying (if they're the last person to post in a thread).

I apologize if I messed up the order of your pictures. It's been a long day at work and my brain isn't up to speed.

I must say, now, I love your Sims 2 gnome. I think they're cute in WoW, but I just can't bring myself to play them. XD

My apologies! Many other message boards I've been on have had limits to the number of pictures you could have in one post and I just assumed that it was the case here. I hope I didn't make a bad first impression!

Thanks! The bummer is, though, that since their skeletons are so squashed, it's hard to get good pictures. Lots of the animations look kind of funny.  Cheesy

The gnomes are hilarious, I've never messed with Simpe so I've never even seen 'little people' in the sims before.  Very cool.  Being of smaller stature has always made making a self sim impossible without making myself a teen sim (still too tall) All my asian sims never seem right standing at six feet in my opinion either.  Hope you find all your lost cc Good Luck.
