Sims, The Easter Egg - Creator Skins!

Right click the D:\ drive and select the "Explore" option. (where d is the letter of your CD rom drive) This should bring you to a list of folders. The go to the "Patches" folder and then the "res" folder. There, you should find three new faces and skins. I believe these skins are those of the creators/designers of The Sims. The names of the skins are:
The location, to be exact, is "D:\Patches\res"

You can copy these into your game data folder (C:\Programfiles\Maxis\The Sims\ Game Data\ Skins) and they will become playable characters in the game!

I'm surprised nobody found this out before I did! I've been playing for years and this is the first I've ever heard of hidden skins!

I really like the Dennis skin. The way I got it up is probably quicker than what is suggested. Go to Start, then Run and type D:\Patches\res (If D:\ is the right drive for you, otherwise change the D to the drive letter you need), then press OK and a window will come up, the paint files in there are the skins which you move to C:\Programfiles\Maxis\The Sims\ Game Data\ Skins .

You should be more specific! All you had to say was that it is on your livin' large cd in the Patches\Res file. Not everybody's D drive is a cd-rom!
