This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This will replace the puke pink skintone with more of a Night elf tone, I've also added an extra colour on the slider for my Dark elves.

The slider turns from Pale Pink, Mid Pink, Dark Pink/Red and into Dark Dusk, Mid Dusk and Pale Dusk.

(Extracted Cas Shots)


Be very gentle when using these sliders because they're quite sensitive and I've aimed to have a good range for both tones.


f you already have a pink sim in your game these will overwrite, but there does seem to be a strange issue at first.
When wearing everyday clothes the sim may maintain EA's original skin colour but with the rest (formal, Undies etc.) they'll sport my default tone. I think it may have something to do with refreshing the thumbnails so delete your CASPartCache from Documents/Sims 3. If that doesn't do the trick then just change your sims outfit, take them back to CAS or use a dresser just make sure it's a different outfit then when they emerge problem solved.

NOTE: If your wondering why your female sims have strange pink lips when they don't in my screen shots its because of EA's poxy lip overlay, I've removed it from my game and I'll upload some face overlays which fix this.

Have fun.

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.
