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.

Hi everyone!

This is my skin collection #1, non-default, as requested.

Please, read below:

1 – These skins will NOT show up instead of the Maxis defaults in your game.

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. I will NOT do a set with the genitals showing. Please stop asking for realistic nude skins - I am not making them. Please do not add genitals to any of my sets and upload it anywhere.

5 – Feel free to upload these with your Sims on non-pay sites, but please do not edit them. Every time you open a file in a picture edit program and then save it as a BMP file again, the result will be more pixellated and uglier: I'd prefer that all the versions of my skins circulating are ones of high quality without bad noise. (for your own personal use, do whatever you like, just don't upload them... for ideas for skins, I have a topic in the Create forum. Aside from that, minor edits might be okay, just ask me first).

Thank you – and enjoy!

You make me so happy! I was just wishing for non-defaults today... which is kind of random since I have your skins as my defaults anyway...

Ah thankyou, I loved this set and I'm happy you've made it non-default. Thanks so much!

That's funny. Just today, I made them non-default for my own game. If I'd waited a little longer I wouldn't have had to do that. XD Oh, well.

Anyway, thanks for this. Default skins are really only for townies, NPCs, and Maxis-made Sims in my game, so having these as custom is really good.

And one last thing: This is my first time posting in one of your threads and I just wanted to say that your skins are gorgeous.

I've downloaded almost all of Your skins now and have to say Your work is excellent.

But not only Your skins are beautiful, I love the eyes as well. Is there any chance You will make an eyecolor set soon or maybe even a default replacement set? Sorry, for being so impatient.

You skin tones are extremely beautiful and I absolutely respect your decision not to make fully anatomically correct skins. However as you do make the breasts complete and many of us are using Warlokk's hi resolution female top meshes I have a painful decision. Which one to use.
Is it possible for you to rework your most popular skin tones to be compatible with his mesh? I do not believe the quality of your work will suffer as Warlokk uses the default mesh positioning for correct effect.
Thank you and I will likewise respect your decision on this.
