This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
***UPDATE (06/10/06): Well I finally got around to making a Default Tan (Dark Tan) like so many wanted. Remember to remove any other Default Tan files before installing the new one if you wish. Also, if anyone has any more problems with my skintones replacements please post it here and include a screenshot please. Thanks and enjoy! :D

***UPDATE (12/11/05): Alrighty, I redownloaded and tested out all of my default replacements for every age and skintone and all of them showed up perfectly except for the Default Dark (Dark Tan) teenage girl, which was addressed before. I have now updated that file so if you are using it please redownload it.***

For all of you that have been waiting patiently I present you with default replacements of SimCribbling's newest skintones. All skintones in the pictures below are shown without any makeup or accessories on. I’ve also decided to create default replacements of all the skintones, but you can’t have all of them in your game at once. For replacements of the Maxis light skintone you can either chose the pale or light skintone. For replacements of the Maxis dark skintone you can either chose the dark tan or dark skintone. Please be aware that you cannot put both the pale and light skintones into your download file at the same time or there will be problems. The same goes with the dark tan and dark skintones. Once again I want to thank TurboJAzn for his default replacement skintones (HERE) which I used to create these. Enjoy!

NOTE: Please do not redistribute this skin on any pay website, or the Sims Exchange. If it's put on any free site or forum please give both SimCribbling and me credit. Thank you!

***UPDATE: I've added another tan default replacement using SimCribbling's dark tan skintone as requested.***

Thank you very much for making this! I know how time consuming making defaults can be. Could you make an optional file to have the Dark Tan skintone as the default tan skintone? (S3)

I could do that, it just might be awhile, converting these skins to defaults isn't the quickest process... :D

Thankyou very much! The sim cribbling skintones are my favorite, and the new alien one would also look awesome. Sorry, I have a stupid question; I'm assuming this replaces all Maxis skintones of the ready-made sims (postgirl, repairman, townies, &tc) already in the game, as opposed to just the new ones that you make? Just to clarify...

Yep, it replaces all of the existing sims skintones, but it doesnt update their icons...if anyone knows how to update all prexisting sims icons that would be great.
Lab Assistant
#13 Old 12th Nov 2005 at 11:53 PM
The icons update after you do a change of appearance in the mirror. I just use the insimenator and select that sim, go to change their appearance in the mirror and maybe change their lipstick or something minor and click the okay button and the icon is changed. Now when my maid comes, her new icon pops up in the box saying she is leaving for the day.

Thank you so much! I had in mind to ask you to do this, but I thought it would be too much since I already asked you to make the default alien skin. What can I say, you're the best :D

Thanks for making these default! Also, thanks for giving us the option to make the dark tan skintone as the default tan (S3). I'm looking forward to the alien default tones!

Quick question: Does this specific skintone affect men as well. 56K won't let me download successfully from SimCribbling to check. >.<

#19 Old 13th Nov 2005 at 1:32 AM
Yes. It affects man too. My Chris & Wyatt Halliwell never looks so good :D.
Lab Assistant
#20 Old 13th Nov 2005 at 1:57 AM
My question is, if I make them the default skin tones, the ones that you didn't convert to default, I can keep the regular type skin tones I've allready gotten from simcribbling in my game. So, if I choose the pale for the default light skintone, I can then keep the original simcribbling light skin tone in my folder as a custom skintone?
Inventor
#21 Old 13th Nov 2005 at 2:41 AM
Yes you'll still have the custom skintone I want to say thanks for making these defaults. I found a way to do it using the Scan folders tool and was excited and it didn't carry over all the textures. I went to check Don Lothario's household and his face took on the new skin but his fit body type was the Maxis default lol
His wife and kids were fine though. I'm on dial up though so I'll have to download these later on when I have more time to be online lol, like several hours

Oooh. I think these are going to replace my Helaene 805 defaults (I love those skins, but the eyelashes on them were starting to drive me crazy). Plus there's an alien one to go with! Would love to see zombie/vampire defaults from the grey tones also, if that's possible, so that any zombies or vamps in the game will match with everyone else.
Lab Assistant
#23 Old 13th Nov 2005 at 3:28 AM
Thanks so much for the answer Greenlea, I allready put them in anyway, kinda figured I would still be able to have the others as customs. Thanks again Patty for doing this, it's just what I wanted. Even those gorilla faced Maxi's guys look better now.
