Sims 2 Rave Goggles for Men & Women, Teen-Elder MAJOR UPDATE: 3 NEW VERSIONS + SHORTENED THE LENSES OF OLD VERSION
Updated: 18th Mar 2013 at 1:02 PM - Just minor changes to text
Remember those nifty Rave goggles from The Sims 2, the ones that the Sims wore on their foreheads? Here's a conversion of them for The Sims 3, in two versions: one modified to be worn over their eyes, and one in the original position on their foreheads.
They are found in the Accessories section under Glasses, and are enabled for both genders and Teen to Elder. All versions have three recolourable channels. In the Sims 2 Maxis-stencilled lens texture version, the three channels consist of 1) the "lenses", 2) the lens surround (which comes out in a two-tone effect, light and dark) and the top half of the elastic band, and 3) the bottom half of the elastic band.
Below is the Maxis-stencilled version in its original forehead-mounted position:
I made the forehead version in only the Maxis-stencilled lens texture, but you can recolour the lenses a very dark colour if you want to get rid of the stencil on the lenses. Also, for a couple of plain non-stencilled forehead versions of my mesh, see sionelle's nice new retextures of it: http://www.modthesims.info/d/466317
For the "worn on the face like glasses" version of the Maxis stencilled goggles, please see Agnes Crumplebottom in the below thumbnails for pics.
The new versions with clear, sunglass or glowing lenses, have the following three slightly different recolour areas: 1) The lens surround (which comes out in a two-tone effect, light and dark), 2) the top half of the elastic band, and 3) the bottom half of the elastic band, as seen below where Gobias Koffi models the new clear lens version:
Below, Agnes Crumplebottom wears the new Sunglass lens version, which I think have a nice sort of Steampunk-y look to them, while doing some experimenting:
And the new glowing white lenses version, which can be used for various scary characters such as cyborgs or other nefarious villains:
As with my other glowing white accessories, you need to have a good video card that supports the glowing effect in order for these to glow - otherwise they will look like a sort of flat shiny grey texture.
Thank you for looking, hope you'll have fun with these.
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

This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below for more information.

- - File was updated after upload was posted
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.
