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.

The tan default is the only skin that had the textures missing for my child and toddler sims. The other default replacements are fine.

I love these skins, they're beautiful. And you've probably been asked this before, but I was wondering if you could make them as non-default for those who don't want to replace the originals? I don't know how much work is put into that, so I understand if it's too much and you don't want to. I just thought I would ask. Thanks! Later :D

Could you make these without default? I like the colors. But is it possible with a little bit less light in the face?

I will make them available as non-defaults sometime tonight or tomorrow

Please, always ask for permission before uploading any edit or default or non-default of any of my work. Sometimes, I have a set of my own planned and would prefer to upload on my own account. Thank you

Hopefully, after this weekend, another set - the dark set - will be available.

Just wanted to say that these are really brilliant and would really love to see my favourite sims with the new skin tones. Why did Maxis not employ you to do this in the first place, their defaults are a bit errmmmm DRY! Yours are fantastic but a non experienced file changer like me would feel much more comfortable with a set that aren't defaults (but in a way I would like to see what the NCP's look like with new skin! (",)

Thank you for agreeing to put a non default set on - means that everyone will get to enjoy your artistic work.
Thanks

Thanks a lot! I'm looking forward to the non-defaults. I like your skins, and I can't wait for the dark set. You make the prettiest dark skin tones.

Anyone else having this problem? I'll check tonight if it's a problem with the file. If so I'll fix it and it to Enayla for her to upload.

I'm having a few problems with these skins. One of my females looses her legs when she takes a shower or uses the bath after i replaced her (light) skin with the darkest through sim surgery.
And one of her children looses her whole body when she swims. She has the darkest skintone too. Didn't do anything to her.

I have no idea why it's not working :/ I'll try to talk to the girls who did the translation into default, as I had no hand in anything beyond making the skins themselves.

For the last 3 days I've been looking for better defaults than the ones I am currently using. I am still looking. This set was the close but the shine on the skin and especially the face is too anoying. It makes them look like they have white face make-up on.

Ah, when I say not working, I mean the files aren't downloading properly. Says the archive is corrupted or something along the lines of that. >>;; Sorry I forgot to mention it.
The two that I did manage to download work perfectly. <3 I'm going to try getting the other two on a different computer tonight. Hopefully that'll work. =D

edit; Tried at the other computer. The dark skintone downloaded, but the light one didn't. D: Though I did notice that the file for the light skintone was only 183kb, where the others are a lot larger. >>;;;

Hmm.. only the new skintone shows up for my sims faces, and below the neck, it's all maxis default ^_^ I've tried deleting and redownloading, but no change.. any idea why?

You have completely enhanced my sims experience at a whole new level. Your talent is beyond belief and I'm so glad that you've created skins that work for those of us that don't have the EP's. Do you think that you will ever convert the skins that you created to work only with the EP's to ones that don't? Regardless, I look forward to your future work with heavy anticipation.
Keep up the fantastic work and thanks!

I would like these much better if they could be made to be much less shiny. I was very disappointed to see these in my game, because my expectations were high. The very bright areas on the face bothered me the most. I think you have amazing talent, nonetheless, and I appreciate what you've done.
