Yay! I downloaded these skins a while ago at your site, and I was just dying for a default version. These are great, thank you!!!

Thank you so much for doing this. I tried several times to make these as defaults for my game but certain skins came out wrong.

Thank you for making Louis' skins even better. *hugs*

I've been wanting Louis defaults for so long, but always hated the eyebrows and belly button ring that came tacked on. Thank you so much for making these and taking the time to make them as defaults!

Hey Lin. I LOVE these skintones.

But I was wondering, can you make an alternate version that uses your Tan skins as the Default Tan (currently they are using your Dark Tan version) and you Dark Tan skin as default Dark (currently you are using your Dark version for the default Dark)? Or can you at least guide me on how to change them? Thanks.

Thanks very much for these. I also had tried (and failed) to make default overides of your great skins but had a problem where fit adult males would revert to the maxis body (but retain the custom face). I'll definately be trying these out.

I currently use your skins like this:

Mid = Light
Tan = Mid
Dark Tan = Tan
Dark = Dark

If you are willing to do alternative versions I would love it if you could do your mid tone as the default light and your tan as the default mid.

Thanks

That would be awesome. I made default overides using the one button SimPE method described by Sleepycat here but obviously you did something different because yours work properly (I checked).

I would actually be very happy with this also. Your tan skin is actually my favourite and if it were one of the defaults then more sims would be wearing it. :D

The non default is the four file uploaded here. If you get the fifth file (default add on) then it will became default.

When I made these skins default, the back of babies heads were the default Maxis colour, same goes with the alien default. Is that normal or not? ;P Because if these defaults aren't like that, I'll download these instead.

#21 Old 22nd Jul 2006 at 4:41 PM
I made these skins default and had no problem with babies. Even the townies looked normal afterwards, which is rare when I replace one custom default with another!

These skins are amazing - I thought this other I'd been using was easy to use; my sims who are based on real people look more like the real thing now, which I thought I'd never see! Thank you so much!

Any word yet on how to override the Light default to Mid, and Mid to Tan yet? The light skin tone is just TO light. Teens look unhealthy...

Thanks for making these, great work!

Your tan is great as well, I love what you did with Louis'. I have been a fan of that particular one and I agree with several others, I would love to see it as the mid, or 2nd maxis default shade.

I am sure that it is quite a bit of work, but if you got around to making that one as a default. I would love and appreciate it!

I love these skins but am having trouble with the defaults. The townies heads do not match their bodies. I have all five required files. Any idea of what I'm doing wrong?

*smacks side of head* I had two sets of default skins. I haven't opened my game yet but I bet that's what the problem was!
