"We are being watched..."
Having had a couple of requests for these sims after I used them as screenshot models in a previous upload, here's a Simmification of the core team from the TV series Person of Interest: Harold Finch, Samantha 'Root' Groves, John Reese, and Sameen Shaw.
They were made with game version 22.214.171.1240 (the June 23 2016 patch), so you must have your game patched to that version or higher or else you'll get an error message in CAS telling you that you must update your game in order to use them. To find them in your Gallery, you need to click the box to show modded content, because they use one piece of cc: Harold's sideburns.
Three of them use EP or SP hair or clothes, so you need the necessary packs in order for them to be dressed and coiffed the same as they are here. EP/SP items used: John's hair is from Get to Work, Root's hair is from Romantic Gardens and her everyday top is from Get Together, and Harold's formal suit (seen in the formal wear screenie in the row of pics at the top of this page) is from Get to Work.
If you don't have these packs, John and Root will be bald, Root will be topless, and Harold will be missing his formal suit. However, the base game does have somewhat similar-enough hairs for John and Root, and alternate clothes you could substitute.
Harold should automatically appear wearing his sideburns, but in case he doesn't, they're in the Skin Detail section.
(Please note that I use default replacement eyes, so their eyes won't look exactly the same unless you're using the same default replacements: Radia Iris by mahamudo).
John: Renaissance Sim / Quick Learner, Good, Active, Gloomy. You might like to replace one of his traits with Zerbu's Impassive Trait mod if you don't want him to be the usual TS4 default 'cheerful all the time': http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=540328
Harold: Computer Whiz / Quick Learner, Genius, Geek, Good
Sameen: Chief of Mischief / Dastardly, Non-Committal, Self-Assured, Hot-Headed
Root: Computer Whiz / Quick Learner, Genius, Insane, Geek. Root's 'Insane' trait is particularly handy, as the animations for 'talking to self', or 'talking with friends' while she sits at a computer, look like she's chatting with The Machine via her head implant.
In-game, Harold has found someone in need of help whose number has just come up on his Command Center computer:
And Root, John and Sameen get ready for action: Root converses with The Machine for further instructions, John does some situps, and Sameen drinks milk for strong bones.
Root and Sameen bicker over who gets to shoot who first, while John rolls his eyes and examines his fingernails:
Thanks for looking, hope you'll find them as fun to play with as I have. (They like hanging out with my Deus Ex sims, natch.)
Download the file and unzip it. Move the .package file, which contains Harold's sideburns, to your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods folder. Then copy the files inside the four folders, which contain the four sims, to your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Tray folder.

Expansion / Stuff Packs Required
You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed above installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.
You need to be a Registered Member to be able to download from MTS. Registration allows you to thank and leave comments for the creators, see your download history, participate in the discussions and much more!
1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the sim to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sim file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game, enter Create-a-Sim, and save a sim to the sim bin to create this folder, rather than doing so manually. After that you can close the game and put the .sim file in SavedSims
4. Once the .sim file is in SavedSims, you can load the game, and look for your sim in the premade sims bin in Create-a-Sim.
Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
