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.
Seems like this is the first Seasons required download here...

This is to replace the default Plant skintones that are shipped with the game, using Enayla's Pixie Forest skintones. I used Moss and Glory. Moss for regular, Glory for wilted.
http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=191392 is the page where the original skintones are.

If you can, and find any bugs, let me know (except if it's vampire related. That's not my fault, it's maxis fault)

(Note: There are only 3 ages for plants: Toddler, Adult, and Elder. Elders use the regular skin. Wilted shows up when the motive bar is in the red. Exact value not sure.)

Please get the new downloads (Seperate wilted and regular this time)
Also, male plantsims work now. Both wilted AND normal. Same for females, and toddlers.

With the recent pets patch, plant sims who become vampires should look correct. Even with seasons, I do recommend putting in the patch (since it fixes some issues that seasons has with skintones, and some pets problems that seasons didn't fix)
Other than that, the vampire skintone problem seems to have been solved by Maxis.

Also, made the Nymph skintone by request. It's a regular default, not a wilted. Check the screenshot to see how it looks in-game. Pixie Nymph from Enayla's Pixie Realms located at http://modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=187977

Only download ONE of plant and ONE of wilt.

New:
Created a default replacement based upon nymph. Couldn't test it, so if there's problems with the wilted nymph replacement, let me know.

Awesome, they look so much better than the default skin. Good job
Btw, do you know how I can get the leaf dress for normal Sims as well? It didn't show up using the testing cheat =/

Perfect, and I was thinking of doing a search for how to make defaults for something like this today. You saved me the trouble, and I appreciate that. They look great.

Great work, I'll download this and install once I get seasons up and running Can you possibly make another replacement for this using her Pixie Nymph skintone, found here? http://modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=187977 I think it'd look nice as a default as well, with the leaves on the face and whatnot

Thanks for this. I will test this on guys and tell you how it works.

Ok I tested it on guys and had a problem. I had that plant lady spore up some kids. When he grew up he did not look right. The girls are fine but the boys have problems. When he was little he was default while the girls wernt. Then he grew up and all but his head changes.



I'm sorry I couldn't test him wilted because it's really late and I need to get off the computer.

This is great. I love Enayla's skins and I was actually thinking that the PixieNymph skin would be perfect for these "garden nymphs" . BTW, how do the wilted plant sims look with the Maxis skin?

These are great, the Maxis one was so strange they looked like aliens.

When you say only one Plant default, does that mean we cant have a regular default and a wilted default? Or you mean just we cant have both the nymph and moss ones?

What a great idea! That third one looks beautiful. I'll have to bookmark this for when I get the EP

Fabulous idea!! And so quick too. They really are lovely.

Unfortunately I have to wait until tomorrow to try it out because of England's silly release dates. People at the shop told me they only release games on a Friday for some odd reason.

But as soon as I get Seasons I'll come back and download.

In Canada, I got the game on Tuesday, from EB Games who got it on Monday, and on Tuesday night I made this replacement after looking at the plants. To make the first took a while, since the numbers didn't add up properly. As you can now plainly see, the sims work now (Except for the maxis-related vampire bug. Didn't put screenshots here because I'm not here to work on fixing Maxis related bugs)

Also, to you who want to know about wilted plants...
You can only get a wilted plant sim when your regular plant sim is in severe motive depression. That means in the red a fair bit (you basically can only get it if your sim is off free will mode, unless you lock them in a room and take out the plant needed things)
