Everyone loves Enayla's beautiful pixie skins - she has made so many!

I have taken 49 of them, colour-sorted them and then geneticized them so that you can have a truly varied neighbourhood and sim offspring who will inherit from a large selection of skin tones (depending on how many files you put in your game, and how far apart on the spectrum the parents are).

To sort them, I used the formula lightness = 0.21 R + 0.72 G + 0.07 B (which is a thing), taking a sample of colour from the edge of the face. So although you may not agree with the order by looking at the colours, it was the best thing I could come up with!

You will certainly need the four default skins (Blue Midnight, Pixie Hush, Pixie Joyless and Golden Grace). These are the only essential skins, and your game will function just fine with them, but that's a very limited choice! You can download any or all of the other skins, depending on just how much variety you want.

The first image shows the ordered faces extracted from the skin packages, with the red ones being the default colours. This is the total variety, and just about every non-fantasy skin Enayla has made (that I could find).



The second image shows Joe and Jo Public and their brood. Joe has Golden Grace skin, the lightest one, and his wife has Blue Midnight, the darkest. Their InSIMenated children therefore take their skin tones from the full selection available, and this is what the game chose to give them. Aren't they a lovely family?!



The skins are also townified so your townies will wear them and join the breeding spectrum. They have been assigned values from 0.1 (Default S4) to 0.9 (Default S1) so they all lie between these two.

Many many thanks to Enayla for her amazing art work. I am really enjoying playing with them in my game. I hope you do too!

I hadn't realized that these are defaults and that you have to use the defaults to use any of the skins at all. I would have liked to use these skins, but I have another set of defaults that I would really like to keep as my defaults. It would have been nice if they were available under custom skins as well.

Hello! Thank you for all your work here! I have a question:

I downloaded just a few skins and they replaced two of the defaults.
So- now all my darker black sims all have the blue midnight- including all townies!
So, I wanted to change this so I took Blue Midnight out of my downloads and deleted it as well as taking it out of the Sims download file
and deleted that too. It sounds like those actions should have taken away the Blue Midnight and either replaced it with a different CC skin
or the original default?

Can someone help me here- I appreciate it so much! Just wondering if I can ever get the original skin colors back on
the townies! Thank you!

Hello it's me again! Hhaa, I am going to answer my own question. I went back into my downloads and found one more
file and deleted and restarted and it solved the problem! So now I am off to add more skins! YES!

Why did you reverse genetically align these? From darkest to lightest rather than the way the game is originally set up, love the set anyway.

Looks like the OP is not around to answer, but anyway.... I guess you say the defaults for the basic Maxis colors (1,2,3,4) are required(just so they can override Maxis. And your other colors are just optional, but being genetisized will work "right". But what happens if I DON'T use your #4 default? Seems like it would still do what I want.

Namaste... or "go"
