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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hi, I'm Louis at SimCribbling.

Anyway here they are

Light, Mid, Tan, Dark Tan, Tan, Pale
Gray, Slategray, Dimgray, Yellowgreen, Midnight

Fantastic! I'm so pleased that you're uploading your things here now...these skins are pretty much my favorite custom skins I have, and it'll be great to download all of them from Modthesims2! (I had problems with other servers, so this will be nice.)
Thanks a million, glad to see you're making things again!
PS-- sorry again about thinking you where a guy, I'm glad you corrected me. I hope you don't mind the mix-up. ^^"

You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

Bless you, Louis! I used these as my favourite tones until I lost all my downloads in a crash, and was upset to find I couldn't get them back. Thanks so much for replacing them here.

Of all the things I've lost over the years, it's my mind I miss most.

Thanks for uploading these! And after looking at your site, I can't BELIEVE what the EA site mod said to you. "I plan on putting in for a permenant ban for you. I would advise you to clean up your act totally"?! From the sounds of that, people would think you'd been uploading PORN or something. God. It's censorship gone mad. O_o

Are these default replacements?
Theyre awesome! Just I'd rather not have them as defaults so when i get the next EPs it stuffs up the game :P

These are the only custom skintones I use, period. I can't find a default version (light, mid, tan, darktan) so I still have the Maxis ones ruining things, but ALL my sims have these skintones.

<3 You're amazing and I've learned a lot about texturing by looking at your work. Thanks loads!
