Sims Globe has been lucky enough to receive an invite to get an early preview of The Sims 4 Create a Sim Demo and I’m going to do my best to give you all the information and screenshots as possible. The Sims 4 CAS Demo will be released to the public in due course and does not entirely represent what CAS will be like in the full version of The Sims 4 – there may well be more content available and some features may be added or removed.[symple_heading title=”The Sims 4 Create a Sim Guide Index”]

The Sims 4 Create a Sim has developed new ways in customizing your sims, and here are some of the basic new features that you will find useful in creating your perfectly unique sim.
Above is the most basic user interface in The Sims 4 Create a Sim. It allows you to give you sim a name (and randomize the first, or last name), select your sims’ age (currently only young adult in the demo), their gender, their voice, and walk style.
We now have a vider range of ways to customize our sims voices and walk styles. We can choose from three types of voices, clear, warm and brash, and we can then further adjust their frequencies.
We can also now select our sims’ walk styles. We can choose from 9 different walk styles, Default Walk, Perky Walk, Snooty Walk, Swagger Walk, Feminine Walk, Tough Walk, Goofy Walk, Sluggish Walk and Bouncy Walk.
This section will be written in more detail soon, featuring animations and/or videos of the walk styles in The Sims 4.
We can now also more thoroughly randomize our sim if we want to initialize a bit of inspiration.
New to The Sims 4 is the Gallery – an in game online community feature that allows you to share you households around the world and browse through other simmers’ creations. It’s fluid, and fast, and is a great new feature that I will definitely use all the time. One great feature is that you can now merge your current household with any household in the Gallery! Take a look at some screenshots below.
