2017 'The Sims 4' Update: Skin Tone & Custom Contents For Black Sims Now Available; How To Gain Access Revealed

It has long been a requested for several "The Sims" players to have more diversity for skin tone. With this, YouTube content creator Amira has made the Melanin Skin tone for Black Sims ahead of "The Sims 4" official content update.

"The Sims" Skin Tone Diversity

In different "The Sims" games, "The Sims" players can only select a specific base skin color for their Sims and only adjust the shade after. There were no skin tones that will represent "The Sims" players with darker skin tone or the community they belong to. "The Sims 4" also lacks skin features, details and options. With this, "The Sims" players have asked for more contents.

In response, SimGuruMegs has posted on her official Twitter account and asked "The Sims" players for their feedbacks. She has asked what specific skin tone and details that players want to be included in "The Sims 4." Some of the requests include skin tone for Asian Sims, pale Sims, and black Sims. They have also asked for more face features including wrinkles, redness, body and face hair, moles, and birthmarks.

"The Sims 4" Melanin Skin Tone Pack

YouTube content creator Amira has taken a move ahead of "The Sims 4" official content update. She has created a website called The Black Simmer, which already has 16000 members. Together, they create customized skin tones for different "The Sims" players. To allow Black Simmers to finally get the skin tone that would represent them, they have created the Melanin Skin Tone Pack. "The Sims 4" players can just register on The Black Simmer website and download the skin tone, Sims Community reports.

"The Sims 4" Custom Contents For Black Sims

"The Sims 4" players can also use several custom contents. These include those created by "The Sims" custom content creator EbonixSims, Xmiramira, OnyxSims, Blck Life Simz, Gloriana Sims, and Savage Sims. They also have a vault that contains tons of custom contents for Black Sims. To gain access to the custom contents, "The Sims" players must be active on their forum. After posting for a certain number of times, they will be able to unlock the vault and gain access to the contents, Sharkyshood reports.
