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.

Can someone help me? I've tried downloading the Summertime skin a few times now, but I keep getting this pop-up. What does it mean?

does this mean you now know how to make default skin tones in regards to aliens, zombies and vampires? Because i would love it so very dearly to have your horror skintones as it in my game

Kirei!~ it's beautiful* I downloaded them 2days ago... but couldn't find where the skin was... and I only realize tht it was in the sim skin default section just now.

If I downloaded another default skin, will the current downloaded skin replaced by another? or there will be extra default?? (=_=)??
Lab Assistant
#119 Old 7th Feb 2006 at 7:55 PM
Ain13, it's better to remove the old default before you put in a new one, or unexpected results could occur. I suggest creating a folder named default in your download folder and always put default skins in that folder so you can easily remove them if you wish.

Zaimou, someone else has already made her zombie and alien skins into default. Go here :

Garnet, your message indicates that your download did not complete fully. This is a connection/site issue. Keep trying, hopefully at time where the server is less busy.

I was able to download two of them, but kept getting the same "unexpected end of archive" for the other two. But I will keep trying, because these are beautiful skins - I would love to use them in my game.
#122 Old 8th Feb 2006 at 1:11 AM
Well, tried them ingame, and boy are they shiny. The only problem with that is that they look very strange on the fugly Maxis townies, what with their ginormo fish lips and boulder-size cheekbones (or lack thereof). They do look fantastic on the pretty sims though. Damn those fugly townies, ruining all my plans.

May I suggest a little surgery? That should fix those fugly townies right up. There are a couple of mods floating around that allow you to do surgery on townies and NPC's. You can even fix their genetics afterward, so that the new face is passed along. It's incredibly easy

You can then remove the default versions.

That's good if u know the name of the files u have to remove... but beeing my download folder the mess that is... i really can't tell.

This are the most gorgeous skin i've ever see so please, please, please, please, PLEASE (sorry... loosing control) do them not default too.
