Not Enough Options For Black Sim Characters? A Black Woman Fixed That

Leave it up to a Black woman to fulfill a void. If you’ve ever played The Sims, the video game that allows you to build houses, decorate them, and then build people, dress them, and craft their personalities and orchestrate their daily lives. Basically, it was a way to play God.

And since quite a few of us have a god complex anyway, it was a source of great entertainment. But if you’ve ever gone about the task of creating a Sim, you probably realized that the options for Black folk were limited. And by limited I mean there was one Black skin tone, one or two hairstyles that were Black. And one of them was a high top fade…before that was back in fashion. In a word it was outdated.

Thankfully, Amira Virgil not only noticed the problem, she had the skills and expertise to do something about it and thus the forum Black Simmer, was born.

See what she did in the video above.

Check out what she’s been able to do with the game using Black Simmer on the following pages.
