Hi! I'm a big fan of sims 3 and takeru sato..sadly when I downloaded this and opened it in the game, his skin was black...could you tell me what expansions you have?...I'm really sorry for the trouble. Thanks for uploading this!
Hey, expansions don't affect this, so don't worry about that. You need to download the custom skin from the link (Skin by Lemonleaf), scroll to the bottom where it says 'non default skin' and click one of the download mirrors, e.g. rayfile. Then you need to drop that in your mods folder and Takeru should show up just fine. If you don't want to download the skin, you can simply pick a different skin and re-save him to the sim bin, then he won't be charcoal colour! Hope this helped, R x
