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.
Update (2/12/06): IAmTheRad has converted Enayla's Jade eyecolor to replace the defaults! They are now up with the alien/zombie skins.

Update (2/10/06): Thanks to IAmTheRad's help there is a new download for the alien. I replaced the original with the new one, so please redownload. Don't forget that the zombie was replaced on the 4th, so if you haven't redownloaded it, do so now.

And in case you haven't seen the default of Enayla's vamp skin done by IAmTheRad, you can check it out here

Here are Enayla's Unearthly and Deceased as default skintone replacements for your aliens and zombies. You can get the original skins, makeup and a beautiful vampire skin here...

Place the files into your Downloads folder and remove any other alien/zombie defaults before using in game. If you decide to remove them, simply take them out of your downloads folder and the Maxis skintone will be back.

Alien skintone seems to be weird in the head/face department. I get a weird shape, like the original mesh that was given to the game by maxis. So, could someone fix this problem?

Could you PM me with the exact problem. I haven't had anymore problems in my game with it, so please be specific. I've only gotten one other person who had problems and they couldn't use the original skin either. Not sure what caused it, but their skin had a robotic look. Does the original download work for you two? I'm thinking that there may be another robot-like skin that conflicts with the original file but I'm not sure why or how.

Thanks sooooo much for making these default!!

But I would love to see Enlaya's Vampire skin as a default too! Do you think you could manage that?

Thanks again!

I'm having the same problem with the alien skintone too. I wanted a alien young adult female and it was just a half a face block on her face and the male just isn't working. I'm sry to say but i never had this much problems for something for the game. Im just gonna get get rid of the defaults until its completely finished.

I have rezipped the alien skin which has no problems with any age or sex in my game. I'm sorry to anyone who still has problems, but I consider this skin as finished hence the new disclaimer. I have no hacks and I do use other defaults with no problem (Enayla's default skins and Barcelonista's eyes) I do have someone with the problem who is trying it without some files, and hopefully they get back with me about it *hint hint*, but until then I cannot find a problem.

Okay, might as well show what my problem is. If you need an example of the problem I have with males I'll get that too. I know it's a small image, but it shows enough. The hair is like that. In the Smith family, the guy teen has his weird hair, and only a default (actual sims default) skintone. I'll take a look at it through SimPE and see if I can make any changes. I might just get the actual skintone and modify it.

Well, I think I just discovered the problem. You have a bunch of, it seems 'junk' in the file. A bunch of material definitions and whatnot. The other replacements, the original skins (non-zombie, non-alien) ones work fine. And they are full of just images. I'm sure if I spent a little bit of time, I could make new defaults that I guess will work. I know I've made zombie skintones work before...

EDIT: Using SimPE and an older skintone that works (I'm using S1 as the base) and the official maxis package file to see the instance lists seems to be the way to go for this skintone. It works the way it's suppost to, and just in testing it, the skintone works this way.

Now, the only problem would be with this solution, the resolution of the skintone isn't as high when it's imported from the original files. It reduces in quality quite a bit. But, it's a temporary solution for now.

Thanks, IAmTheRad. What's weird about your screenshot is that I had that problem with the original file before I reworked it and uploaded it. I'll see what I can do about the resolution. And thanks for making a vampire default for those who wanted it.

*Edit* Okay the new file is up with better resolution and no junk! Thanks again, IAmTheRad.

#43 Old 10th Feb 2006 at 8:58 PM
Just a note: The vampire default also has the bad resolution. But of course, it'll be really hard to make it working the way the original maxis vampire skin works (without destroying all senses of the original color...). I might work on it over the weekend, I might not. I'll have to take a look at it later anyways.

I love that you've changed the skins into defaults. And I jumped out of my seat when I saw that you made the alien eyes default too. Everything works fine, except for one thing. With some alien sims that were in my game before I installed the default, there are different eyes. Green ones, that they didn't have before. There's like a green glow over them. Before these they had the normal black default eyes. The green ones look like this:

I don't know if this has anything to do with it. But they changed after I installed the default. So I'm like 95% sure it's because of this :D.

EDIT: I just had an alien boy with the default eyes and they worked fine. But as soon as he turned into a teen, they went green , like on the picture. Are the eyes not suited for teens? Cause come to think of it, I never had a teen with the default eyes. Atleast not the way they're supposed to look. I also had babies with the green eyes. I now know for sure that it has got to do with this download. What is up?
