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

Or can you at least guide me on how to change them? 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.
