4/1/11 - No this isn't an April Fools joke, there is a No Mosaic (uncensor) patch available for The Sims Medieval. This will remove the blocky censor over your sims when they bathe or pee. At this point there are no skins (which will likely change very soon) so it's just barbie doll smooth. But it beats that ugly mosaic.
Breast sliders mod (for TS3) works with TSM! Download here to make adjustments to your female sims' boobs.

So how is The Sims Medieval?
I've always enjoyed The Sims series, but my favorite types of PC games are Role Playing Games. The Sims Medieval attempts to combine these two genres, and surprisingly succeeds. The RPG elements are very basic but as it turns out that's all The Sims needed. Quests, levelling up, and crafting really add a much needed sense of purpose to the standard Sims gameplay involving relationships, careers, furnishing, and building. Not to mention a plethora of needs; these all added up to a high dose of tedium. In The Sims Medieval the needs are reduced to only energy and hunger. The rest of your time involves a main quest and secondary mini quests that you're supposed to finish by the day's end. Quests are usually relatively interesting. After a main quest is fulfilled, you have points available to spend on expanding the kingdom by adding various buildings. Each building needs a hero, like a wizard in the tower, or knight, monk, spy, etc, and they will have various quests specific to them.
It is not without faults. There's little to no story and not much in the way of actual combat, but these things don't seem necessary. There's a little too much reliance on "off screen" happenings that result in you reading about an event your sim experienced and then making a decision. Unfortunately you can't experience these events directly but there are plenty of random results from various interactions that you CAN participate in.
If you like The Sims gameplay but would appreciate a greater sense of purpose in a fantasy setting plus expansion, then The Sims Medieval is worth trying. Purchase it here
