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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
*Update* Hello again all!... after i had already made and uploaded these, i found this post , in which someone fixed templates 21 and 25 for all ages, so i have added a rar file containing additional ages for those two templates. If you want them to display properly you will have to go to the link above and download the "argon_archfix.rar" file and unpack it into your downloads folder. *end Update*
Hello All!

This is my first upload, consisting of a set of CAS face replacements. I originally intended these for personal use only, however, they turned out rather nicer than i expected, so i figured i might as well share them =). As such, all of the faces are made to appeal to my particular sense of aesthetics, and provide me with less hideous heirs from my various legacies XD. So, in short, i was aiming more for prettiness as opposed to variety and realism =).

There are 26 replacement faces in the set; i did not change the first template as i am rather fond of the maxis one. All templates except #21 and #25, which can be changed only for the adult stage due to the way maxis coded it, are available for all ages. I have included pictures of the templates with and without custom content (apologies for the default replacement eyes in the sans-CC pictures, i didn't notice i had them in until i compiled all the pictures =P), as well as a picture of random townies in my game to which i attached the custom content picture of the last face template because it wouldn't fit in the normal pictures. Also, the last 3 faces have elf ears.

To install, unpack all the zip files into your downloads folder. I put each face template into a separate folder so any unwanted faces may be easily removed.

If you are in need of some CAS face replacements, but these are not quite your taste, more really awesome sets may be found at the following links (i would suggest downloading them all and using each set to create one load of townies; it makes for wonderfully diverse neighbourhoods XD)...
Zazazu's Face
Selzi's Faces
Oepu's Faces
Terakosmos' Faces
Sarkadie's Faces
AmberDiceless' Faces
Doc Doofus' Faces
AllenABQ's Faces
Nailati's Faces

Also, a big thank you goes to Motoki for the replacement tutorial which can be found here and to AllenABQ for the base files found here.

Finally, i really have no policy regarding uploading and/or crediting of my files, all i would ask is that you do not upload them to any pay sites because that is a little... trifling... otherwise, you are welcome to use them in any way you see fit XD

Hellooo, do these replace townies with FUGLY faces, if not how can you without doing a lot of facelifts? (These do look very nice)

Hello Bru! May I say that these are lovely. I really love them!
Can you please let me know where you got the skintone for the sims in the top row, furthest to the right? I love it, and their eyes too?
Thank you very much!

Hail Bruna!!!
You have just granted us the ability to create beautiful sims with minimal effort!! No longer will we have to be irritated by those butt-ugly Maxis faces ((:
Woot x

Also, which sites did you get the hair from? They're gorge (: But if theres like a jillion of them, don't bother, I'm not that mean ^^

I know this may seem like an absurd request, as this set has been out for a long time and who knows if you're still active here or not. But would it be possible to label the pictures better so we know which face belongs to which replacement number? Or perhaps post a text guide to tell us which sets are displayed in each picture?

I ask this because I already have a default replacement set, but I wouldn't mind replacing a bunch of them with yours. In other words I want to mix and match the sets. However, I see no way of doing that with the pictures provided. The problem is there are 27 pictures, but the set only includes 26 replacements. I know that you did not replace the first default. But I can't tell easily whether the first male/female shown are the default maxis structures, or if the first two pictures show your version of set 2.

I don't know if that makes sense at all. But I won't take the risk of deleting files from my other default set to replace them with yours until I am 100% certain that I am deleting the right ones, and selecting the right ones from your set.

Hey, could you tell me where to get the hair of the girl 5 over and 3 down. She has black hair and white eyes and I am in love with her hair! Just get back to me if you know which one.

Choosing between many face replacement sets was hard, but when I saw your faces I knew that they had to appear in the final decision between yours and three other creators. Imo, yours are the best choice. They look natural, there is difference, and they are likeable. The other choices yield too many samey sims but your sims show range and diversity. Excellent work!

I don't like how big the eyes are, but I can always fix that in-game.
THANKS!

Alright! I don't have to have all my Sims only use the first Maxis default because I suck with the sliders! <3
These are awesome!

I don't know if this will ever be seen or not, but one of these templates brings about the "birth" of creatures far uglier than anything I ever saw in the default game!

I have no way to know for sure which face causes the problem at this point in time, but I suppose I could put them back in one archetype at a time and try to sort that out...

At any rate, the horrifying generated NPCs had faces that ... melted right off their heads, and resulted in faces poking out of their stomachs. I'm not sure if it happens at all ages, or not, but there's definitely a problem with one of them, at minimum the elder version.

Just thought you should know. They're otherwise very cute faces, and much, much nicer than the defaults! Thanks!

I love it! The only Maxis one I really like is the first one, so I used to keep on just using that one for all my Sims until I couldn't take it anymore and finally found this. These are great! I love the eyes and how the faces are different! Great job!

Hi bruna00000,
I'm currently in the process of converting DFRs like yours into non default for my own use. Do you have interest in adding them to your upload? At the moment I haven't converted any of your files and it takes approx. one hour to edit one of them, but if you say yes I'm happy to give you copies of them when I'm finished.

This happened to me too. I made a post about it here: http://modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=543341

The problem seems to be in face 20, for elder females. Males with face 20 end up fine but they can pass on the same face template to their daughter/female grandchildren who can get the broken face when they age into elder.

I have not been able to fix this problem completely. The only solution I've found is to give the sims surgery and make the surgery permanent through SimPE. You'll have to do it for all of the affected sims though, so they won't pass it on to their offspring. Unfortunately for me I have 5 sims with this face template

There also seems to be some errors with some of the noses as well, but I was not able to take note of which ones cause the problem. These are very nice face templates but be careful in using them.
