New default CAS faces - complete set

This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
These files are designed to replace the original faces in CAS. All faces have been either edited from the original Sims faces or completely replaced by me. Faces generally feature larger eyes, fuller lips, and thinner noses and cheeks. Some of them have a couple unusual features to provide variety and because I tried to leave them looking somewhat like the default versions. If I get enough feedback, I may provide an update that makes them look better in the future. ;-)

Faces created entirely by me are #5, #6, #7, #11, #13, #18, #19, #21, and #24. Face #13 is elven and #19 is evil-looking to make interesting new townies.

You can select only the male, female, or unisex child faces to install, depending on which you prefer, but I would recommend installing all archetypes of the same number instead of just picking and choosing so they will look similar.

I hope you enjoy these new faces. If you create and upload any new sims that use one of my unaltered archetypes, please give me credit, but if you alter the facial features, no credit is necessary.

Thanks to AllenABQ, Motoki, and astraldata for providing a simple way to replace the CAS faces.

All files should be extracted to My Documents\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\Downloads If you are using AllenABQ's replacements or any other default face versions, they must be deleted before installing these. If you would only like to use some of my faces, simply extract those files into your Downloads folder, making sure there are no other face files in there. You do not need a complete set of faces in the downloads folder to make it work. To make sure the thumbnails match the new faces, delete My Documents\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\Thumbnails\CASThumbnails.package

While all new townies and NPCs should have the new faces, you should probably replace the first set of townies and NPCs created in a new neighborhood (DON'T replace university sims). To do this, use the 'deleteallcharacters' cheat right after creating a brand new neighborhood. Then, create and move in your first family. You can then use 'boolprop testingCheatsEnabled true' and shift-click the mailbox. All you have to do is select 'FORCE create all NPCs', let that finish, then 'FORCE create all townies'. You can also do this to add a new set of three of each NPC and 30 new townies in existing neighborhoods, if you like.

Thank you for keeping some of the original faces with some editing so they don't look like mutants as well as giving us new, fresh faces to choose from. I lack the patience to go through and edit them myself so a lot of my sims tend to look the same. This will solve that problem. Thanks again!

These are brilliant. I never really use the original CAS faces and it's a pain having to make my own. This will add variety to my game! Thanks! ^^

Oh what an amazing idea. As a skinner it can be annoying to role the dize over and over and over without getting a Sim that looks like a freak. MUCH much appreciated!!!

Very nice. I must say, I went through all the other CAS replacements you linked, but found I much preferred yours.

I too looked at the other default CAS face sets out there, and yours was by far the very best. Thank you for ridding the Sims world of ugly townies and NPCs! :-)

can you feel it//it's good for you

No, their genetics were set when they were created. :sadpanda: To use my faces for townies, you'll have to create a new neighborhood or use the test cheat to generate new ones. New townies and NPCs should have my faces, though.

Your sets offer a variety I was looking for (being too impatient to modify faces by myself) and avoid a similarity among each other, which is simply great! Thanks so much for this! :D

Ive been using these now for a couple of days ... I already cant imagine NOT having them in game!! I love that they look like the originals, but are so much improved .... I will admit that i found it odd to have 2 elven faces untill I saw NPC elves wandering around! Very nice indeed Thank you

:baloons: :baloons: I was wondering, when i do use these faces is there a certain number of faces i can use and, should i use both files . would it be possible to use some of your faces and some of someone else's faces too. I hope i don't sound duh, but i would really like to know. thank you. oh and by the way thanks for the fantastic work.

What an improvement!
They're like a breath of fresh air in my game. I just got them, so I'm still surprised when I get a non-mutant, but it's a surprise I am growing to love. Thank you ever so much for the hard work you put into it... and the lovely results.

Sorry, angelsue, I didn't make that very clear. You can use all three sets (male, female, and child). Actually, I would recommend using all three if you don't want any more ugly townies and NPCs. The only reason I put them in three sections is because the files are too big to upload them all at once.

If you want to use a combination of my faces and someone else's, select which faces of mine you want to use and which gender and ages you would like them in. Then you have to dig through the zip files until you find the faces you want, my pictures have the same numbers as the files so you can figure out which ones they are (most collections number them from 1-27). Then, all you have to do is put the files in your downloads folder (I put them in a separate sub-folder to tell them apart from my other downloads). If you're using different sets of faces for males and females or adults and children, don't forget to look at the adult versions of the child's faces, to make sure they don't morph when they're older.
