I love your skin tones Louis! Heck I love all of your stuff. I've been using your skins for all of my sims.

One thing though. Have you heard of anyone having a problem downloading the midnight skin? I was really looking forward to making some dark elves, but it never shows up in my game no matter how many times I dl it.

At last! After a total of AT LEAST 20 incessant hours of downloading on my slower than slow internet connection I have collected your skins! I must smooch you, but I have a cold so I must not... Air smooch! Imaginary smooch! Smooch of a different color! Smooch from far away! *toddles off to play Sims 2*

Your skintones have always been my favourite; I feel like a loser for not thanking you before now. =>.<= So, truly, thank you. I won't even play the game without the default replacements using your 'tones.

Thank you so so so soooo very much! You are the best skin tone creator *BY FAR* and I can't even imagine playing sims without your skins!

I can't believe that these skins aren't featured! I check your site and your page here at MTS2 like, every day!

So thanks for all your hard work, you make my Sims 2 experience so much more enjoyable!

Louis, you're an amazing sim creator and I have to thank you for make happier my simming time.By the way, I have some problem using your skin Louis_Skin_07_Tan on my favorite sim. Every time he takes a shower (on any shower) his body disappears and you just look his head visible. There are something that I can do to fix it? Thanks in advance for your info.

These are amazing skintones. I love how they're not shiny at all like the ones I previously had. Very nice work. Thank you!

Hi Louis, thanks so much for these skintones! Ever since I bought Sims 2 & began installing custom content, I had been looking for "the right" skintones and had absolutely no luck. That is until I found yours! You've done an awesome job. Thanks again, you're the best
