Update on Project Rene

The Sims 5 Prototype Scene

Although the project is still at an early stage and nothing is final, EA team shared some news about the Rene Project (i.e. The Sims 5) and a very promising screenshot showing that something really nice is on the way.


Lighting has a massive impact on the look of a game. The team is embracing exciting new technologies to support highly customizable and emotionally resonant stories for both PC and your phone.


The vision for animation is driven by the phrase, “read the room,” which means we want players to know how our Sims feel, along with what they’re thinking, just by how they behave. This means we support a variety of attitudes, emotions and postures that need to work across various objects and socialization features.

Sim Routines

To further understand this notion, we are using simple prototypes to understand how Sims live at home and in a broader neighborhood, diving deep into populations, routines and what a Sim can see and do.

Early Simulation

We are slowly but surely bringing these basic ideas to life with 3D models, animations, audio and scripted behaviors in our first version of the simulation. This entails Sims navigating their home and interacting with objects to satisfy their needs. This is developing rapidly and we cannot wait to show you more exciting imagery soon.

Hair Styles

We’re also in the process of figuring out how to model a wide variety of hair styles across a broad range of humanity, and unlock options like flexible coloring. We understand how important it is for you to feel well represented and this is no different for a Sim.

Socialization is a critical aspect of this experience, but there is always so much happening on screen! From animating, talking and processing thoughts, the team is using basic visuals and placeholder content to better understand how much information is too much, what stands out and ultimately, what helps players understand what their Sim is thinking.
This is still in the early stages of development and we’re still years out from the launch of Project Rene, but we are excited to keep sharing the details of our progress with you!

About Sims Transfer

I will upload all my creations here. That means uploading +/-3.500 files... and many, many more images. It will take quite some time... I will give priority to The Sims 4 meshes and The Sims 4 downloads in general. The Sims 2 downloads will follow, then The Sims 1 (because they are just a few). Anything else will follow in whatever order I see more convenient. As for News, Screenshots and Tutorials, the priority will be to add fresh content. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

- All Sims4 and Sims1 creations are now uploaded.

- All Sims3 creations are now uploaded.
- Transfer of Sims2 creations is in progress.
