Glowing Eyes for Men and Women, Teen to Elder

Here is a set of white glowing eyes for your cyborg or alien simmies.

They're for adults from Teen to Elder, and are an accessory, not a contact lens, so they will be found in the Accessories panel, in the Eyeglasses section.

They are in white only and are not recolourable (I have not been able to work out how to change the colour of the 'glow' property and don't know if it's even possible). I saw the old Horror/Sci Fi movie 'Colossus of New York' recently and felt inspired, ha ha: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_iL6ciL0Gq...h/colossus6.jpg .

They are a mesh and will need fitting to your sim's eye using the Eye Depth slider. You can fit them to achieve two different types of look, as below - depending on how far to the left or right you move the Eye Depth slider, they can be either fitted directly onto your sim's eye (left), or placed forward so that your sim has big round bulging glowing eyes (right). (Please note that you may need a slider range multiplier such as the ones that come with Awesomemod or Master Controller to get them to bulge as much as they do in these screenshots):


To fit them exactly into the sim's eye, you need to adjust the slider carefully to get the mesh so that it just sits inside the sim's eyelids without going too far to where the real eye shows through, but at the same time, far enough into the eye so that the upper eyelid can close over it (you'll see what I mean when you apply the mesh in CAS and your sim blinks). This can be a bit fiddly to get right.

To fit them as a round bulging eye, it's much easier - just pull them forward of the sim's real eyes until you get the round shape.

One issue: Note that your sim's eyes must be in an average/default position, the way they come on random sims in the Sim Bin. The mesh does not move along with the eye, so if you make your sim's eyes higher, lower, further apart or closer, the mesh will not be in the right position.

Also, you must have a medium-to-high spec graphic card for these eyes to display as seen here. If you have a low-end graphics card/chip, you won't be able to get the glowing effect. They will look flat greyish-white instead.

In-game, Mr Scary Cyborg has gone for the fitted-into-the-eye look, while Mrs Scary Cyborg has gone for the all-out round bulging eyes look.
They look very effective at night, below. Handy for finding your way around in the dark.



INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS:

Unzip the .zip file, and copy the .package file to your Mods\Packages folder. You only need the one file for both men and women, as it is enabled for both.

If you don't have a Mods\Packages folder and/or don't know how to install .package files, please see full instructions here: http://www.modthesims.info/wiki.php...g_Package_Files

Thanks for looking and I hope you'll find this a useful scary accessory.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Sims 3
Key: - File was updated after upload was posted
Filename - Tip: You can click the magnifying glass to see the archive contents Size Downloads Date
GlowingWhiteEyesM+F,T-E_ByEsmeraldaF.zip 8.3 KB 20,707 19th Mar 2010
Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Since no one has yet made the Sims 2 alien eyes conversion, I'll use this on my alien chick.

I don't know if you take requests at all... But I just made an Evil Genie with your glowing eyes (awesome, btw!) and he has a black cat familiar... Is there any hope that you might be able to create Pets versions of these??

<evil grin>

Pleeeeease... :P

I am not bigoted for race, gender, sexual orientation, nationality, or age... I do, however, have a big problem with stupidity, and stupidity knows no boundaries.

Heh heh, I don't take requests but I do take suggestions on board if they're wacky enough, and I do like the sound of this - but, I'm not sure it's possible to mod a Supernatural's familiar, as opposed to a regular pet cat, and if so, I have no idea how. But, I like the idea of making them for scary regular pet cats so I might look into it!

Yeah.. the cat is just a black cat made in the Pet Creator... He's just a familiar for the story. Heh

If your thinking of looking into it, all I can do is hope... :D

Thanks for at least considering it!

I know you said they aren't recolored. But is it possible to recolor them?
The reason I ask is because I'm making a Starfire Sim and it would be awesome if she could have green glowing eyes on top of her normal green eyes

No, it isn't possible, sorry (as I did mention in the Overview page). If it was, I would have already done that, definitely!

Maybe one day! I, too, am making a starfire sim. You wouldn't happen to know of anyplace where I can get starbolts? You seem like the kind of creator who has already made something like that xP

It can't be done because the fiercely glowing material definition (shader) used for these isn't recolourable. But having recently learned to make recolourable eyeglass lenses, it's possible to make slightly glowing recolourable eyes with the settings I used for the glasses. They glow slightly during the day but more so at night (sort of a dayglo effect). Will put that on my to-do list!
