Guess the Face!

There's been some discussion lately about face templates, and it inspired me to try a little game. I thought I'd post it here too for those of you who don't have LJ or would like to discuss things a bit more than Tumblr allows.

Here are a bunch of Maxis premades from TS2. See how many you can guess by their faces alone!


1A, 1B, 1C, 1D

1A, 1B, 1C, 1D

2A, 2B, 2C, 2D

2E, 2F, 2G, 2H

Face 1:

1H -

Face 2:
2A -
2B -
2C -
2D -
2E -
2F -
2G -
2H -


Hint: The sims above are from Pleasantview, Strangetown, and Downtown. Four of them are dead and buried, two are supposedly the same person. Two have been aged up and two have been aged down.

Hint: The sims from Part II are from Pleasantview, Strangetown, Veronaville and Downtown. Two are townies, one is an NPC, and one is dead. 3 have been aged up and one has been aged down. (Also, there are a couple of, ahem, big clues on one of them. ;D )

E and F are different people but they do have the Marsha Breunig face. You did a great job otherwise, glad you found it fun!

I'm going to try to do this without checking any pics for reference, but aren't more than one of the downtowies dead? On first glance, I'm assuming I see at least two and possibly even four here.

ETA: Make that five dead and three aged down? Or am I just completely off the mark?

Okay, here goes...

Face 1:
1A - Erin
1B - Brandi
1C - I was going to guess Strangetown Bella, but I already have two townies, so...?
1D - Rainelle (dead)
1E - Jon (dead) (aged down)
1F - Ripp (aged up)
1G - Ajay
1H - Kvornan (dead)

Face 2:
2A - John
2B - Kiernan (dead)
2C - Don
2D - Mortimer (aged down)
2E - Pleasantview Bella
2F - Lola/Chloe
2G - Jenny
2H - Jennifer


A - Alexander (aged up)
B - Goopy (townie) (It's quite possible I mixed these two up, for obvious reasons.)
C - Mary Sue
D - Meadow (townie) (aged up)
E - Circe
F - Ophelia
G - Cassandra
H - Kaylynn (NPC)
I - Titania
J - Jennicor (dead) (aged down)
K - Nina
L - Dina

I have an unfair advantage, since I've been studying a lot of these, but I'm sure I've probably still made some mistakes. Some of these are pretty tricky.

I didn't cheat for anyone else, but I will openly admit to looking at the wiki briefly to sort out which Tricou guy was which. I don't know that family very well and I still get them mixed up.

Don't you think it's easier to see how people say Nina and Dina look alike when you compare them this way? I think they're more similar to each other than a lot of these sims are to their template base.
May. 10th, 2013 08:11 pm (UTC)
Yes, I agree Nina and Dina do look more similar this way. And I was surprised how some of the face 2 and 1s were more distinct looking than I'd given them credit for. I included most of the downtown people, because I needed more templatey faces to compare the others against. (I'd actually always thought three of them were straight templates, but even they have differences)
May. 11th, 2013 01:09 am (UTC)
With Dina and Nina, it almost seems like someone tried to make them look like identical twins, but wasn't paying very close attention to what they were doing. :P But then again, they seemed to work that out pretty well with Angela and Lilith, so probably not.

Most (if not all) of the "downtown people" have quite enlarged eyes. I have a theory on why that may be, but I won't say anything else about it until you reveal the answers. I'm probably giving away who they are as it is.

I'm trying not to go on and on about Ripp (Good luck with that), but this really shows how much longer his face is than most face one types (and quite a longer upper lip, too). His chin seems to reach further down than most face twos. I think that's what made him so unlike that template for me. I always thought it was a longer base face and they had just cut the jaw in at a sharp angle.

Oh, and I didn't get your joke about "big clues" right away, but I laughed when I figure that one out. I can't believe I didn't see them right away!
May. 11th, 2013 02:26 am (UTC)
I like the idea that they used different templates and tried to get them to look similar. Though for some reason they gave Dina a little turned up nose and Nina a fantastic Komei nose. Maybe they did some messing around with the babymaker in CAS?

It seems like templates are more obvious in the character pictures on the little user interface? Dina's bored expressions would remind me of Bella and Nina's reminded me of face 15, but then I'd compare the features in bodyshop and everything would look completely different.

I think that was how I guessed Ripp's as well, seeing his user interface picture as a teen. He does look quite different from face 1, especially as an adult.

I'm curious to hear your theory about those downtown people because that is true now that I think about it.

Heehee. ;)
May. 10th, 2013 08:25 pm (UTC)
I think you missed one of the hints, there are two separate ones for each part. I did forget one who was aged down though. I also said dead and buried, because you could make a case for another one having a "dead" token, but no grave.

I wasn't counting the dead sims as non-playable, because they seem less like townies to me and more like dead playables. But that seems confusing now, so I'll just take out the non-playable specification.
May. 11th, 2013 01:38 am (UTC)
Yes, I did miss one of the hints. Haha! It makes sense now. And I see that I also didn't notice that Ophelia would be be one of those aged up.

Ah, yes. The mysterious "dead" token. I've always sort of liked that little touch, like maybe it represents her being declared legally dead.

I would definitely consider those to be "dead playables" as you've said, much like other dead relatives of sims, except these don't have living relatives (well, sort of). They're playables, but the whole point of them is that they're all dead. In a mysterious manner.
May. 11th, 2013 03:06 am (UTC)
Ah I just realized there were two aged up in part one. XD You can blame me if you got that one wrong. I keep thinking of everyone as YAs in your story or adults in mine.

Yeah, especially since there weren't any playable families that came with NL. And having a house makes them pretty different from townies.

Answers should be going up shortly in a new post.
