Why does alpha CC annoy those who prefer to use maxis match so much?
All I ever see is “it freaks me out so much!” “They look so creepy!” “It’s too uncanny for me!” Or “they look too realistic!” Like we get it, why do you guys keep saying it? And how is saying it helpful under someone’s post who just wanted to share something they were proud of? omegle.onl/vshare Sometimes it sounds mean spirited and I just don’t get it tbh. I personally like both styles which is why I am asking.

This is more a matter of the generation that was raised on the internet being socially inept rather than the passionate hatred for the alpha content. Normally people understand that one should not say negative things about a product of someone’s effort they choose to share with the word (unless it’s constructive criticism, and “I don’t like alpha” obviously isn’t) When one says mean things to people in real life, they risk getting slapped or at least making a very bad impression that can backfire. On the internet, under the veil of anonymity, saying whatever you want comes with no consequences. People got too used to this. If you will encounter this, you should call it out with something akin “do you think it is appropriate to say this in response to …” to shame and embarrass these people instead of blocking or “then don’t??” at them to bring them back to reality because usually they say a lot more awful things under selfies or paintings.

PLEASE FOLLOW THE RULES OF CREATOR HELP:
describe your problem and provide a picture of it (if possible);
provide download link(s) to .package and .blend files.
If you have a Gmail acc, you can host all of the above on Google Drive
That is the exact reason why I do not share my creations, (and I do have a ton) because i can well do without such dumb comments. Playing the sims for over more than 20 years I've seen/read enough offensive comments from such people. Lots of creators even stopped creating for the public because of such hurtful comments.
I personly like to create "realistic" looking stuff, or even recolor other creators cc whom meshes I like, but not the color or texture itself. I simply don't like "comic and blury" looking stuff in my game because that is mostly what TS4 became comparing to TS2. BUT I would NEVER criticize other creators content in such a manner.
My favorite slogan is; "if you don't like what you see, learn how to create your own" and Shut up!

As a general rule, I find most of the internet mean spirited...and there's a few that are unintentionally mean and there are a few who are good people. The big problem we have is that the internet lacks the context of the facial expression cues that you need to know if someone is being nice or not. Without the context we remain unsure of what someone's words mean. I can say "Wow, that looks great." and I could be being sarcastic or I could really think it is genuinely great. Adding an emoji can sometimes change the context... but most helpful would be if folks would explain why they feel that way.
As to alpha while it can be quite beautiful in it's own right... I think the problem is that it tends to look too far out of place in the cartoony maxis world without making very deliberate modifications to make the game feel more realistic entirely. Find an Alpha Bella and you think she could walk off the screen and say hello... and put that next to a default game no CC version and it's so far different it almost feels like an entirely different game. Seeing the two extremes in the same game can sometimes feel jarring to some folks, at least that's what I think may be the issue. So finding themselves jarred by alpha differences, they go all maxis to deal with it, there are some that find somewhere in the middle that is Maxis Mix too. Folks who dive into both worlds. It's all about preference. Play how you want to and play for you.
It also could be a slight sense of Automatonophobia. Fear of human like figures. It's a real thing... Or perhaps it's explained by this theory called The Uncanny Valley by Masahiro Mori which essentially studied how people got more disturbed by more realistic robots due to inconsistencies we see, such as skin texture, eye shine, etc. because we see all of these things naturally without knowing it. So when it's inconsistent it can sometimes upset. He found people were less creeped out by robots that were less human like. This theory could be starting to run into animation and gaming in general.
