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.

this is my full family skin replacement for TS3, as it will replace female and male, of all ages (from toddler to elder) as theirdefault skin.

It is a complete skin replacement set for seamless age transitions for the whole family in one style, this is a variant 2 [v2] tone, and compatible with my previous [v2] releases to mix and match, however if I may suggest you, please just use this latest release as it is better and more seamless around the neck. all the faces now have their own dark texture, so it will retain most of its look eventhough the sim has a dark complexion.

here are the files included/ will be replaced by the skinset:
-ambody_m, ambodydark_m, ambody_s
-afbody_m, afbodydark_m
-cubody_m, cubodydark_m
-pubody_m, pubodydark_m
-amface_m, amfacedark_m
-afface_m, affacedark_m
-ymface_m, ymfacedark_m
-yfface_m, yffacedark_m
-emface_m, emfacedark_m
-efface_m, effacedark_m
-cuface_m, cufacedark_m
-puface_m, pufacedark_m

the files are separated, download & install what you need

about the naming system I use:
F-IN01 = my naming brought from earlier work in TS2 skins
body MTS = barbie crotch
body hairy = if contains body hair other than pubes (usually male skins)
body pubes = with pubic hair & detailed
body shaved = shaved & detailed
face = facial skin set
v1 = older uniform hue on the skin ( more or less same hue all over the body)
v2 = newer more lively hue on the skin (delicate parts get a warmer hue than the not so delicate parts)

later when I use the same hue to make alternate faces or body, I will use
v2a , v2b, v2c, and so on meaning the part would be compatible (hue/ skin color wise) with other v2 series to mix and match

when I would make different hue (more gray, more brown, whatever) I will use v3, v4, and so on, so "v" stands for "variant"
and not "version", so it doesn't mean v1 is obsolete when there is v2.

Finally when I do make considerably better skin in my opinion, I will make a new set named
F-IN02, F-IN03, F-IN04, and so on (until sometime I make it sounds more like a sport car naming than a skinset for simmies)

the full detailed waist down is available at ISA

and soon to be uploaded to SXS, once it is possible, I always get error message when attaching preview picture there


-Aikea Guinea for the very helpful tutorial since I was just installed the game few days ago, and totally uninformed after my few years absent

-Peter & Inge Jones for S3PE NOTE:

why do I make "no ribcage" on this new version, previously as usual I drew some ribs under the skin on the side of the torso, however since now sim uses the same texture for all bodyshapes, it was not a smart thing to be done... as fatter sims will look like they are really big boned
as their ribcage grows along with their fatness level, so in this version I smoothened out the individual ribs into a mere highlights on the area, this area should look as a ribcage for slim sims, and also can serve as fatty layer on fat sims. I also smoothen out the trimmed looking abs, into more subtle shading, so it will also look natural in fat sims.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Here too. Joined ISA about a week ago and never received any acknowledgment, activation or anything else. Is there anyway or anyone who can contact someone there to see what's going on?

It's unfortunate that the full versions of these skins aren't available on any site but one that isn't allowing anyone to join...

Wow! These look amazing in game, I just tried them out for the first time last night. I think this is my new favourite skin in TS3, the attention to detail is AMAZING. It brings a whole new level of realism to the game. I love looking at my sims faces now, I noticed even the kids just look different now (they used to look the same no matter what genetics they had). I can't get over how talented so many creators are on MTS!

I just recently went back to your skins, i have the full pervy version. One question, the specular skin for the men, when i use it, the add on man bits don't show up and for the for some reason the body looks like the EA default.

I have deleted all cache files and any world caches. Another question, i do like this skin, except there is a line, not very visable where the face v2c doesn't qutie match up with the body skin v2b. The first and second version you released matched up perfectly. (sorry if i sound like i am moaning) This was the only reason i took your skins out my game, but now i miss them. So i put them back in.

Apart from that i love this skin, because the details on the skin is so beautiful. I really like the lips, i love all the lines on it. which is why i use face v2c now.

I would love a non default too. Very detailed and super realistic skin. Thank you.

I have the line around the neck as well, but a worse problem is that the skin cuts off at the scalp, like if I have a bald sim his face has this skin but his head's the default, making it stand out and look really weird. I've deleted all of the Cache files but the problem's still there, is there a way to fix it??

I like those alot. Ive been using them for some time, but as i've just updated my game, it seems that they "warp" a bit, per example, nose at minimum setting get "reverese" inside the face, mouth is a little fogged and twisted. Just wondering if im alone with those problems, and if the skins is the problem, and not a "18" from the screen" problem, if you will update them? I run the game on max settings.

I absolutely love your skins, thank you for sharing your masterpieces.
In the future, I hope you do skins for the new SuperNatural expansion coming up. As you did for the unique Sims in Sims 2.

Hello all, I would have an updated version made as nondefault soon, currently I still have to make its obligatory presentation screencaps thingy (which I'm not very good at)

The rest of my skins can be found in my blog

Is there a way to get the skins for the toddlers & children only? I use a skin for teens through elder, and I like the ones I have, but they aren't made for toddlers or kids. Could you do that? Or have you did it & I am overlooking it?

wanted to make a request of the skin, like the game so that with nipples in both sexes, and the nipples of females more defined.

I have a huge problem installing them, too. I deleted all the cache files and everything others said, but it's still not working. So, what should I do?
Navetsea, do you think you can make these files sims3packs?
