I wanted to make fun eyes, and it turned out like this. 'Kookabura' because my friend recently said it was a 'fun' word. :-) I tried to make them look realistic, but not really. Contacts, sorta. But not contacts. :-) The only reason I really made these is because I didn't like the default eyes I had and all my babies looked hideous.

The eyes work in all stages of life, and both genders. I'm not sure if they work in other EP's. Please tell me if they work.

EDIT: Changed screencaps to the ones lamourfou provided. :D

So, they're named after a snake eating Australian bird? *amused*

I tried clicking on the thumbnails to get a better look at the eyes before I downloaded them, but the pictures are rather pixelated. Do you have any other screenshots that show the detail better?

Most of the time me and my friends just say random things. We've always thought 'kookabura' was fun to say. Sort of like 'baluga' (sp? I know it's a type of whale)

Anyway, I'm sorry, I didn't get better screencaps. I would make one now but my game is being stupid and won't let me get anything better.

I hope you don't mind; I took the liberty of attaching a screenshot of how one pair of the eyes looks in my game. I don't have the best video card(nor picture-taking skills), but it's not pixelated. xD

They look good - they have an eerie feeling to them. Thanks


(Let me know if you want me to remove the picture. Or you can even let me know if you want more screenshots. Just thought I'd give a non-pixelated example. ^_^)

Wow, these are beautiful! How do you get the pink stuff (whatever you call it) in the right corners of the eyes? Mine always have to be on BOTH sides to show up on those corners, but I can never get it on the right sides.

See how they are in this picture?

The pink stuff is on BOTH sides, but I can never get it to be on the front corners for both the right and left eye, only on both corners.

Ahh, those images are much better, thanks! These eyes shall make a lovely addition to my game. ^^

Actually I was amused by the name as I am Australian, it made me double-take and clicketh. XD Good way to get people to click the download if they're curious like me.

Wow these are really awesome! I always love downloading new eyes, the Maxis ones bore me now.

Hey fellow simmers, I'm not here at the moment. I've left the simming community for other hobbies in life. Eventually I will be back. Until then, don't expect any of your questions to be answered. Until I come back....

Happy simming!
