See, Marcus, Stephanie CAN fill the Young Teen roll!
I never said S5 or the possible D5 wouldn’t be a ‘morph asset’ for creating young teens. I’m all for the release of D5 and think S5 is wonderful!
I merely express (In a different thread for those who have no idea what we’re referring to) that S5 and David are NOT in my opinion a gap filler for young teens. And they are not and should not be a replacement for Luke an Laura who are like 6-10 years younger than Steph and David.
L&L stage of development is a massive difference to S&D who are some what very close to full growth. Luke and Laura are only just beginning and going through their first teenage growth spurt. S5 and david are around 19-25 That is a big difference to 10-15.
I know. And absolutely, there’s no morph support for child morphs like actual child morphs. It’s just that in Gen 4 we had to make extensive use of what we got, and unfortunately, when it came to kids that weren’t pre or elementary school age we had to make due with heavily alteration of characters like Aiko and Stephanie because they looked younger than Victoria. God help you if you even ATTEMPTED to make a convincing young teen male with Michael, who’s only relatively aid was toony, androgynous-faced Hiro.
Basically, if we were to never see official teens like Laura & Luke again, then we either need to rely on 3rd party people like we’re doing now, or resort to Stephanie (and hopefully David), which can surprisingly pull off those in-between youth ages we’re looking for with enough morphing, scaling, and of course, the right skin textures.
Of course, I’m just saying all of this as Murgatroyd made his Tweens with Evolutionary Morphs and how it personally never took me much effort to make Stephanie into a pretty convincing middle-school chick.
