These files are designed to replace the original faces in CAS. All faces have been either edited from the original Sims faces or completely replaced by me. Faces generally feature larger eyes, fuller lips, and thinner noses and cheeks. Some of them have a couple unusual features to provide variety and because I tried to leave them looking somewhat like the default versions. If I get enough feedback, I may provide an update that makes them look better in the future. ;-)

Faces created entirely by me are #5, #6, #7, #11, #13, #18, #19, #21, and #24. Face #13 is elven and #19 is evil-looking to make interesting new townies.

You can select only the male, female, or unisex child faces to install, depending on which you prefer, but I would recommend installing all archetypes of the same number instead of just picking and choosing so they will look similar.

I hope you enjoy these new faces. If you create and upload any new sims that use one of my unaltered archetypes, please give me credit, but if you alter the facial features, no credit is necessary.

Thanks to AllenABQ, Motoki, and astraldata for providing a simple way to replace the CAS faces.

All files should be extracted to My Documents\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\Downloads If you are using AllenABQ's replacements or any other default face versions, they must be deleted before installing these. If you would only like to use some of my faces, simply extract those files into your Downloads folder, making sure there are no other face files in there. You do not need a complete set of faces in the downloads folder to make it work. To make sure the thumbnails match the new faces, delete My Documents\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\Thumbnails\CASThumbnails.package

While all new townies and NPCs should have the new faces, you should probably replace the first set of townies and NPCs created in a new neighborhood (DON'T replace university sims). To do this, use the 'deleteallcharacters' cheat right after creating a brand new neighborhood. Then, create and move in your first family. You can then use 'boolprop testingCheatsEnabled true' and shift-click the mailbox. All you have to do is select 'FORCE create all NPCs', let that finish, then 'FORCE create all townies'. You can also do this to add a new set of three of each NPC and 30 new townies in existing neighborhoods, if you like.
