This is by request(it actually took longer to get ingame and test then it did to make it), but is also the first time ive posted one of my skintone changing vials here, it is Vial number 9, the other 8 change to various animal skintones from Genensims the vials are also there.

This vial when drank will change your sims skin to that of a alien.
the effect is temporary(wares off when you leave the house) unless you also download the global hack also attached(or have the global hack from my roboticizer or one of christianlov's skintone related mods.

it has the following options:
Drink (changes the skin)
Drink Antidote (changes back)

it appears in Hobbies/Misc(couldn't think of anything else to put it in)

This will work with all expansions, but not the base game.

sounds cool but when they change their skin colour is it genetic?

Life is like toast! Sometimes its golden and sometimes its burnt. Now go make me some toast- thats an order.
Whilst you was distracted by toast, I took over the world. Yes now you must make me some toast because I'm the queen.

i made more vials, that change to different skins, they are on the genensims site linked in the main post, as they take skins made there.

This is such a cool idea! Thank you for this.

Would you consider making some vials to change people to Warlokk's bodyshape skins or Marvine & Besoxboy's new males? I'm especially interested in Warlokk's Classic Pin-Up, Rio, and Renaissance Woman and Marvine's Athlete, but I'm sure other people would enjoy the full gamut of Warlokk skins.

I've made some mods for The Sims 1 -- yes, The Sims ONE :-) -- which you can find at

I'm assuming that if I have a default alien skintone, the sim will change to that skintone instead of the maxis one, right? Thanks, this is very cool... especially because most of my alien-born sims turn out with normal skin :/

When sims age, will they revert back to their genetic skintone?

Would it be possible to make it able to be given to other sims, not just your active sim?

I like this! Can you make ones that make your skin one point darker (e.g if I have light skin, I drink your vial and I become tan)? Or something alike...?

Hi, I made my own skin changer vial following a tutorial. Thing is, I got it to work but it doesn't seem to work for Servos which is what I wanted a skin changer vial for so I wouldn't have to go in and change every servo's skin using SimPE. Is there any way to make this work for Servos?

I was wanting something like this that had a mod to keep the change when leaving a lot.
