This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Update! - More tones to choose from!!
These are highly detailed realistic skintones. Even though they are realistic looking, they are still "barbie" styled..(meaning that they are NOT anatomically correct) so they are ok for all ages

All genders and ages have been customized. Skintones also changes depending on the fitness level for both male and female.. so you will have a different look for normal, fit, and fat sims.

View image for more details!
*Eyebrows are not part of the skintones*
*Ingame shots taken with skintone 0011

Now the rain is just washing you out of my hair And out of my mind
Keeping an eye on the world
So many thousands of feet off the ground
I'm over you now
I'm at home in the clouds, towering over your head

Really beautiful. I love the detail work on the hands. I am almost finished working on realistic skintones and I did some vein-work on the outside of the hands but did not even attempt to try and texture the palms the way you did. You did such a magnificent job with that! I stand in awe of it.

Your model reminds me of Uma Thurman. Beautiful.

What if one little pop could open a world of wonder
So sensory, so satisfying. It's the magic Friskies makes happen every day in so many ways

Nice! I like it, especially the male models nose. Pretty realistic! =) Do you plan on making more shades/tones of this?

WOW THANKS! I did try making the hands more realistic than usual.. not too many have done this, so I decided to do it myself :-) glad you noticed that! It's actually my fav detail, that and the lips.. guy's lips looks "tempting" too..(sorry, I got a thing with lips lol)
In response to your question bardsmanship, I would try to make more tones of it... it was my first try at making realistic skintones, and was really excited at sharing it, that I didn't wait on making other tones... I'll do these prob by next week I hope.

Are you serious?? I use a paid host, did the site myself.. so there's nothing in there that can give you any spyware..we don't even have any popups of any kind at all.. if anything we only have one half a banner in the topics page only and all this time, I've never had a single complain about any spyware, virus, etc.. I'm pretty sure you've got it elsewhere... and if it's true what you say, it's very important for me to hear your reply to see where's it coming from and fix it. (even though I never heard anything from the members or have experienced anything myself).. how/when exactly did you get this spyware? did you click on anything in specific??? what you see? hope to hear from you.

Has anybody else had a problem like this?
thanks.

I've never had a problem with this at all.. I find this so hard to believe as I've never seen anything at all nor our members. i've also checked my Anti-Spyware's log and nothing appears either, it's just so weird. *sigh*.. I'm very sorry if indeed it is our site, I don't know from where it would come from( I'm sure you noticed that we don't have any annoying banners or popups anywhere, plus this is paid hosting.. so I hope you understand why I still find this so hard to believe).. I'll take a look at it just in case and ask our members if they had experienced anything similar.... thanks for pointing this out, and sorry if I cause any trouble.

Where exactly in genetics? I've browsed everything she's ever put up as I'm her admin and I've never got those spywares on any of my PC's.
I've just cleaned my home PC, so if you can tell me where I can double check by going there and scanning again.

good thing im experienced... i somehow managed to remove the wares without buying expensive tools, just spybot. but i am sure that the only site i was browsing to was mysimulation

Awesome skintone! I love it =]. The faces look really realistic.

I'm really suprised that you got spyware from there. I've looked at almost everything on that site and go on it regularly and I've never had anything like that happen to my computer.

[BTW, know who this is? MCR. lol.]

#19 Old 23rd Sep 2006 at 4:19 PM
'Sup, MCR? :D

I don't think it is related considering 3 of the sites heaviest users never got them.

webaccelerator (from a quick web search) is a google product, and drsmartload comes from dollarrevenue.com packaged with other stuff like SpySheriff and can be download BY other spyware already on the computer. It probably snuck in elsewhere and decided to rear its ugly little head while they were browsing MySim's site.

I've scanned all 3 machines I use to surf the site and I don't have either of the two bugs listed.

hey MCR! thanks for the comment! hehe..
big_al405...do you use any file sharing program or installed any freeware software? that usually always gets you spyware too including the free anti-spyware softwares.. I personally have had terrible experiences with it.... and these things don't come up right away either..spyware usually checks your hardrive and sees what you search for first.. then later it starts sending u all these popups and even installs stuff on your pc without you knowing it's there, even with an anti-spyware program.... then it shows up when u don't expect it like harmless said.. it might be possible that you got it elsewhere and happened to be viewing our site when these things showed up... either way i'm glad you got it fixed.
