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.

Hi everyone!



With the help of two lovely people that I really can't thank enough, I finally have a default skin set to offer you.

Three cheers to Angelyne and SleepycatDSL – without whom I could never have done this.









Please, read below:

1 – These skins will show up instead of the Maxis defaults in your game. Before copying them to your download folder, I advice that you remove any other skin defaults.

2 – I will not send any of the hairstyles shown in the pictures (I mention this only because I receive so many requests for them... but they're not mine)

3 – The eye colours are not included this time. I have a default set coming up, so be patient.

4 – These skins have nipples but not genitals.

5 – Feel free to upload these with your Sims on non-pay sites, but include credits to Angelyne, SleepycatDSL and myself or a link to this thread where credits are given, as well as make sure to warn people that they are defaults.

Thank you – and enjoy!

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

possible to make men not have pink lipstick?
I'm just wondering, it's just... freaky for me. It kinda makes a man with a bear taken less seriously. I'm a guy myself and wouldn't wear lipstick, so would it be possible to get men without the lipstick?

Thats not lipstick! Thats the natural color of lips.

Hm.. Will they work even I allready have your "Improved Skin Collection #1"..? I'm just asking 'cause I'd love to get rid of those Maxis skins, but still keep those lovely pales of yours.
Your work is truly beautiful, thank you

These are so great! Could you PLEASE make them as non-defaults? I'd really appreciate it... *winning smile*

Yes Elenee they will work fine and you will not loose any skin in your collection.

Iamtherad, like it was mentionned, it's the color of the lips. I don't find it too "lipsticky" myself, it looks natural in the game. I also hate when men wear lipstick. However if it bugs you, you might try to find some actual lipstick. I think a few creator made lipsticks for men that do not look like liptstick. I mean that's kinda strange to wear lipstick so it doesn't look like you are but here you go. That might be a solution.

And spaceman, Sleepycat explained upthread a simple method where you can turn the skins into normal non-default skins. Check it out.

Questions
~Pokes head out~ Hi, just wanted to say that these are lovely and had a few questions.
- Will any baby/toddler/child/teen sims that I end up with have the realistic skin tone, or will they be maxis?
- Could my dark sim and normal sim end up with a medium sim?
- Are these skintones gender specific (EarlySpring/light will be female or can the skintone be used for male to)?

Sorry for the questions, first time changing skin tones. Thanks.

Edit: I seem to be having a problem downloading Summertime (stops at 2.60MB) and Late Fall (stops at 4.94MB) but the others fully load. Please help? Thank you.

Biggest wishes for TS3:
Wider variety of harvestables and crops from TS1 & TS2 returning to the game
Wider variety of foods
More gems/metals/rocks/ore

I must say... these are the most beautiful skintones I've ever seen. I was a bit wary about replacing my default tones, but decided to go ahead with it... and I'm very much happy with the way they improve the game.

They're absolutely extrodinary!

The skintones will work for all ages and they will replace your maxis defaults. If you have Uni & NL, they can go in a subfolder, but not if you have only Sims 2.

They will replace only the sims who use maxis defaults, and the skintone should be similiar, but much better.

If you decide you don't like them for some reason, all you have to do is remove the files and you'll be back to the Maxis defaults.

Don't know why they aren't downloading, I'd suggest that you keep trying, others have had this problem too.
