I found myself not wanting to add freckles to my ingame born sims. And why should I have to determine any genetics? So I made these eyes that also affects the face. Makeup will cover the freckles, so don't worry about that!

I have to thank Helaene, because I used the alpha from her freckle blush. After much searching (turns out I had the spelling wrong) I now can tell you that you can find the original blush on some of the full sims at http://www.helaene.com You will NOT need this, but the link is required to get the download approved. And also I want to give proper credit to the creator of this excellent alpha! Thank you Helaene!

If anyone wants to remake this in any way (for example replace the eyecolor for one that looks better should be a simple thing to do), please do! I'm uploading more for the sake of sharing this idea than anything else.

Update: I'm sorry for the inconvenience with non working files. I have uploaded files that should work for you now!

So these are found in the eyes section when you create a sim, correct?

Thank you so much! I've been looking for good freckles that were genetic, not makeup.

I love the idea of freckles being inherited (being freckled myself.) However, the freckles are not showing up in my game - not with the eyes, blush, or costume makeup for that matter. Can you please check into it as I love this download? Thanks for the great idea.

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

I´m surprized that it wont work for you. But I will look into this, I am no expert of wich files to give you for it to work. I will do some testing! Is it working for anyone else or have I made a mistake somewhere?

That's a good idea, downloading.. ^__^ In fact I hate maxis eyes but as you said, they are easy to recolour.. So does this descend from parents to children? Well if it's a genetic I bet it does.. Hee, freckled babys! 8D

I don't know how it works on babys... I think at least for the maxis skins, the eyes on the babys actually comes from the skin-texture. That's why all the babys have blue eyes. Anyone know how to work around this?

A baby was born, and it's freckled! His mom has a custom skin, so that might be why he has his fathers eyes from the start. I don't know, but isn't he cute? :spin:

Not all babies are born with blue eyes. Only those with blue eyed parents.

Great idea vidde! I've seen skintones with freckles, but not eyes. Good job!!

Well, actually, all my dark elfs are born with blue eyes. It can be a bit annoying. Their parents ar NOT blue-eyed. I guess it depends on the skin...

It wasn't working for me, either. I downloaded the update you posted, though, and I'll try those in a little bit. (Gotta go to school now.) Thank you so much! I love freckles!

Creepy it might be... =) All those sims are clones from eachother, and I just put them in a row and turned free will off to take the snapshot. I wasn't going to play that family, but... well now the oldest daughter has gone to college and her little sister got kidnapped by elfes (evil ones).
