This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
UPDATE 10 AUGUST 2012: Added a new version of the clear glasses with recolourable lenses. Please note that these only produce a subtle, delicate tint, but still look nice. Now your sims can have rose-tinted glasses!

These funky-looking small round wire-framed glasses are found in the Accessories/Glasses section in CAS, and are enabled for men and women from Teen to Elder. They sit a bit down the bridge of the nose and would suit nerdy students, prissy schoolmarms, or old professor types. They are recolourable/patternable and have one colour channel:

Per the update regarding recolourable lenses, the first two screenshots in the below picture are of the original plain lenses, and the third screenie shows off the new recolourables in a rose-coloured tint:

With the recolourable lenses version, the strongest lens colour is obtained by setting the brightness slider in CaST all the way to the left (brightest) and the colour to its strongest and most saturated. The further to the right you move the brightness slider, the more the colour will fade. These particular lenses only have a delicate tint, so you will probably want to just keep it on the brightest setting.

Following several requests, here is now a sunglasses version of the small round glasses:

('Ozzy'-like model was made by simply changing Cornelia Goth into a man and giving her different eyebrows!!! Spooky! But for a good ready-made Ozzy sim, check out Monca's Ozzy here: )


Unzip the .zip file(s), and copy the .package file(s) to your Mods\Packages folder. For each item, 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:
