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!



This is my skin collection #1, non-default, as requested.









Please, read below:

1 – These skins will NOT show up instead of the Maxis defaults in your game.

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. I will NOT do a set with the genitals showing. Please stop asking for realistic nude skins - I am not making them. Please do not add genitals to any of my sets and upload it anywhere.

5 – Feel free to upload these with your Sims on non-pay sites, but please do not edit them. Every time you open a file in a picture edit program and then save it as a BMP file again, the result will be more pixellated and uglier: I'd prefer that all the versions of my skins circulating are ones of high quality without bad noise. (for your own personal use, do whatever you like, just don't upload them... for ideas for skins, I have a topic in the Create forum. Aside from that, minor edits might be okay, just ask me first).

Thank you – and enjoy!

This is what I was looking for! I tend to be very picky, but your skintones are perfect, in fact, your skintones are the only ones I use in my game. Big thanks for your work!

Wow! I almost always use these skins, I know you wrote in the description that you don't mind them being uploaded with sims to non-pay sites, I'm going to upload my Padme Amidala (from Star Wars) sim with your 'Early Spring' ok? Thanks!

See my art here.

I think these skintones are great but I have a question. Do they contribute to the genetics of children? When I was making a family today, the child only took after one parent and the skintone stayed the same. I don't know if this is because of the skintone or something else I have in my download forlder. Anyhelp on this is appreciated.

When you use custom skin tones as non-defaults on your parents, your children can only inherit either one of their parents' skin tones, but nothing in between. You should use Enayla's Default collection of these skin tones, then it's possible for your kids to have all shades in between their parents' shades!

With kind thanks to Enayla for permission these skins (and almost all of her others) have been made genetic (non-dominant, fitting into the darkness range just like the 'normal' EA skins) by me over at The Sims 2 Workshop http://www.sims2workshop.com/viewtopic.php?p=10290

I'm sorry I couldn't post them here at MTS2 but the moderators here refused to read my permission email
