The Create a Sim screen appears only when you place a new building and have to create a new character. Its functions are basically the same as The Sims 3, but we must admit that Sims look awesome! The graphic engine is different, you can see it from the landscaping too, and the characters' structure is much more realistic than The Sims 3, as well as the skin tone and the eyes. It's a real pity we can't use them in the base game!

Anyway, in the CAS you can choose a name and a surname for your Sim (during the game, according to your character's level, his name will be preceded by an appellative like Lord, Priest, Sorceress etc.) and a voice tone among the four available. In the following tab you can choose the skin color (from pale white to darker nuances), face details (like redness on the cheeks) and the age modifier: although Medieval's Sims do not age, you can make them look older or younger depending on how many wrinkles they have. You can also choose their weight and muscles.


Traits and Fatal Flaws

Medieval's Sims also have a personality, which is determined by the combination of two traits and a fatal flaw. The way these affect the game is the same as The Sims 3, since they unlock special interactions and features. Fatal flaws can also get you into troubles!


Here below there is the complete list of the 20 traits:
  • Adventurous
  • Chivalrous
  • Creative Cook
  • Dedicated
  • Earthy
  • Eloquent
  • Evil
  • Excitable
  • Friendly
  • Fun-loving
  • Good
  • Greedy
  • Haggler
  • Hopeful
  • Jokester
  • Loves Family
  • Orphan
  • Scholarly
  • Unkempt
  • Vain
  • A whale ate my parents
Fatal flaws are 17, and during the game you can start quests that can help you converting your flaw into a legendary trait. Here they are:
  • Bloodthirsty
  • Compulsive Gambler
  • Cowardly
  • Cruel
  • Cursed
  • Drunkard
  • Fool
  • Glutton
  • Hubris
  • Insecure
  • Insomniac
  • Licentious
  • Morose
  • Puny
  • Uncouth
  • Weak Constitution
The other tabs allow you to choose the hairstyle, the facial features (face and ears, eyes, nose, mouth) and the clothing. In particular, Medieval has sliders for the ears shape, and you can make them pointed (like the Sim above) or protruding!

As for the clothing, there is only one type of outfits (no formals, no nightwear, no sportswear) and you cannot choose the bottom or the top parts. Also, clothing are specific for each character: the ermine is available only for the king, the frock for the priest and so on. There are many outfits, that can be edited with the Create a Style tool. Also, for some of them there is a channel dedicated to the gradient. We saw a long female dress with a large gradient on the bottom.

In some occasions, moreover, your Sims may have to wear particular accessories. During a quest, for example, we had to wear a special hat, that we had collected before in our inventory. This kind of items is indicated by a hand-shaped symbol, and by clicking on them you can wear or take them off.
