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.
These are Louis skins for the Plantsims modified to aligned to Warlokk's HI-RES default body mesh. Warlokk's mesh is not required for these to work. Except for upper body realignment and some recoloring and the vines these are pretty much standard Louis skins. I used the Louis green skins and slightly lightened some of them. Thank you Louis for your liberal skin use policy: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=206740

I found some very nice vines courtesty of PHLOX73 at deviantart.com http://www.deviantart.com/deviation...h+age_scale%3A5
I arranged the vines on the body more the way tattoos would be done rather than all over. Babies, toddlers and children have a vine above their left nipple. Teens, adult and elders have vines as shown on the adult pictures here.




The DEFAULT "rar" file (contains both green and brown wilt defaults). You need to download both for your plantsim to maintain these vines. The pictures above only show the green "state". The brown wilt skin will show when the plantsim is unhealthy. It looks just like the green skin except the skin is a pale dirt color with brown vines. You need the Seasons EP for the default skins to work. The custom skin attached can be used without Seasons.

6/9/07 I was asked by several people to make a default with more vines so here it is. 8/26/07- put a new improved version here http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=246269

SAY THANKS IF YOU GET A CHANCE, I APPRECIATE IT!

Thank you so much for this. I hate the flat, chalky, undetailed look of maxis skins, and I'm always grateful when someone takes the time to make default replacements...especially based on Louis and Enayla skins! They look great in the screenshots, and I'm sure I'll be very happy with them in game. Great work!

So this is just the skin? I mean, my plantsims will have their clothes on right? anyway, thankyou for doing these skins as default, cause I don't really like Maxis' skins. They're all so lame.

Yes, this is just a showerproof skin that replaces the maxis plant default skin. They will still have their clothes on but it was a little hard to take pictures showing their vines with the clothes on.

I really like these, but it would be nice if there were more vines. After all, it's like you said, it's hard to see the vines if they have clothing on, which my Sims always do. I'd like if there were more on the legs, specifically.

Great job. Now I can uninstall Seasons, make Ciem 3, AND still have Botan as a villain!

You can find me on the Sims 4 Gallery as DozerfleetProd. If you have XBox One or PS4, please test out my creations, and let me know if / how well they work on consoles.

The file name says "barbie"--do female sims have realistic tops or smooth?
