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.

What are the maxis defaults listed as? I tried to download and install, but they aren't overriding the defaults.

I assumed based on the blur on the picture that these were nonbarbie... are they realistic on top at least?

I always love your skins! Thanks so much; People have made other defaults of your skinds, but I think these skintones suit the four main defaults best

Shady, Bruno, Nouk, Fanseelamb and JB: You all help to break my downloads folder. You're all so brilliant, so I wanted to say thanks.

This really looks like the best set I've ever seen. Nice dark 'dark' too. Excellent! These'll be my defaults!

I love them, they are absolutely gorgeous! As soon as I can download the dark, I'll stick these in my game! (and my default skins folder on my desktop, subfolder "Enayla" in case I want to switch around) I just wish I could dl. I got the first three but it won't load the dark.

I've never downloaded any defaults replacements other than . . . baby bottles and little stuff like that, nothing genetic. I know I don't want any non default replacement skins in my game, because I want my sims to have variation among them. I am going to try these out and see how I like them in game. I've heard all sorts of rave reviews about your skins, so I think I probably will like them. We will see.

Either way, thank you for all your hard work. You are very talented.

If you have difficulties downloading these files:

I have tried downloading these files and had problems particularly with the Summertime zip. I had tried for 3 days, at least 30 times to get that particular zip but I coudn't. If I could get it to my desktop, it would not extract - and the few times it did, there would be no file in the folder. So I posted a WCIF question to try and locate another place to download the default skin. tlynnjpeg suggested something that actually worked: I logged in on another computer and tried dl it on that one - it worked. The zip could be extracted and what's even better, there was a file in it. I could save it to a USB flash drive and transfer it to my own pc. And it works in-game, too. Thank you tlynnjpeg.

I wanted to let you all know about this, in case more people have issues like I had, cause it seems quite a few have had problems. Happy downloading
