Yayyyzz !! That's good to hear about your game !!
I think your Simmies do look good though. Using CC allows you to do just a little more in every department, most of the time ending up in a more 'sophisticated' looking Sim.
When I look at your Simmies, I'm not thinking it's all base game content, so on that note, I say awesome job Q~Girl !!
