This set of default replacements uses eyes from Enayla's beautiful Eyes for the eyeless collection: http://modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=181654

Another default set is available using colours from her first collection; you will find that here: http://modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=181909

This set however uses the newer eyes which are in a different style, which I myself prefer.

These will replace your maxis defaults while they are in your downloads folder. All your NPCs, and CAS sims with maxis eyes will get these instead.

Remember you can only have 1 default replacement set, so remove any previous sets before you install these.

The colours used are:
Brown: Below
Dk Blue: Betrayed
Grey: Clear waters
Green: Moss
Lt Blue: Angel (from Enayla's first set, as IMO this is the best l. Blue option)
Tags: #default, #eyes, #enayla

I loved Enayla's eyes, but these ones are much nicer. The grey eyes really stand out now, where as the previous set the grey kind of washed out with my lighter-skinned sims. Both are very beautiful, but I think I'll use these. Thanks so much!

Wait... WHAT?!?!?

Well these still are Enayla's, all I've done is taken her graphics and put them into a default eye file. Actually ,my contribution is somewhat minimal :P

I also just realised that I forgot to thank Enayla for letting me share these. So yup; thanks Enayla, for designing lovely eyes and being willing to share the love!

Okay, I have a question about this download. Im new to this site.. and I guess im new to downloading things to the sims period.

Will this like TOTALLY replace all the other automatic colors in the build a sim mode? Does that question even make sense??

PLEASEEEEEE reply!!

Yes. When you build a sim and there are the 5 original colours, the icons are kind of like a fan and were there before you downloaded any new ones - those are the defaults. If these replacements are in your downloads folder then in your create a sim (CAS) clicking on those default eye colours will give your sim these colours instead of the ones maxis put in the game.
The eyes of previously built sims and NPCs (townies, service sims) will also change to these colours.
You can restore the maxis defaults by simply removing these from you DL folder (I keep default replacements in a separate subfolder so I can find them again if I want to remove or replace them-it's worth knowing that subfolders and sub-sub folders etc are fine in your DL folder- it still works) as these don't overwrite them, just overrule them if that makes sense.

So yes, while in your folder they will replace them totally - however this effect is reversable without the need for a re-install.

Thanks for this! I so despised the evil maxis defaults.

Thank you both! I had such awsome new default skins and the eyes just looked awful against them!

I'm glad I ran across these defaults! I was hoping there was a way around breeding out ugly townie eyes. XDD

I love these in my game but I'd like to try out another default set can you tell me what I need to type in to find them and delete them?

If you click download and open the zip file you will see the file names, they are essentially all default_[colour]_eyes so if you use default in a search on your DL folder you should find them.

for future reference it's worth keeping your defaults in a folder in you DL folder, they are easier to find that way.

Yeah, they are beautiful, and the idea of having different colours for replacement... well it's just too original. Thanks! :D

Yes! I've been using Enayla's earlier eyes as my defaults for some time now, but I prefer this set so much more. Thanks a ton. <3
