Baxter familyEdit

The Baxter family appeared in a developer's walkthrough for The Sims 2. It consisted of Don Baxter, his wife Sarah, and his son Alex. Don and Sarah also appeared in trailer for The Sims 2 Holiday Edition (2006). Their extended family included Sarah's single sister Virginia, and her father, brother and deceased mother whose names are unknown. There is a family snapshot of them in The Sims 2 game files, hinting that they may have been originally playable. Another hint toward this is the description for Waterside, the neighborhood they resided in, survives in neighborhood manager file.

Don, Sarah, and little Alex settled down in Waterside.  Sarah wants a bigger family, but Don still craves the romance of his youth.  Can you hold this family together, or will these Sims just grow apart?

Jill SimonEdit

Jill Simon is a 4-star celebrity Sim that was rumored to be featured in The Sims 3: Late Night, in its new city, Bridgeport. She was supposed to live with two other Sims in a luxurious mansion with a curved pool in the hilly, more luxurious section of the city, which is away from the "city center" that is featured very much in the previews. However, neither Jill, nor the household were featured, and the mansion is actually Matthew Hamming's residence. It's possible that she was created for previews.

Amy StarEdit

Amy Star is a Sim that was rumored to reside in Bridgeport, the new neighborhood that is expected to ship with The Sims 3: Late Night. She has been briefly mentioned in a Gamesradar Late Night preview with Grant Rodiek, as a target Sim for a vampire, however she was not included in the neighborhood when the game came out. She is a proven fake now believed to be Emmy Starr.

Sophia, Ollie, and AndreEdit

TS4 Render 6
Sophia, Ollie, and Andre are Sims who were created to showcase the initial gameplay in The Sims 4 official gameplay trailer. In the trailer, Ollie and Andre are shown to compete for Sophia's affection. They're also used in the game screenshots and renders. Slightly altered versions of Ollie and Andre appear in the Gallery in the finished game; Sophia is apparently absent altogether, though there is an EA/Maxis created character named Sophia Jordan, uploaded to the Gallery by SimGuruJill, who is believed by many players to be the intended in-game version of Sophia.
