Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hello, again! This time I have created something to help with those brilliant storytellers out there, which I thought was rather unique.

These are tears for your sims, and there are 3 different types:

Kind of sad: In the picture, you can see that a sim is "starting" to cry, and their eyes have a "glassy" look, and some droplets of tears starting to form under the eyes. The eyes also start getting a little red and puffy.

Very Sad: In the picture, you can see the sim's eyes has more glassy, watery shine in their eyes, and this time, tears falling down their face. Awww...poor thing. ):

Devasted: In this picture, this poor sim has been crying so much, that not only do they have more streams of tears rolling down their face, but they have chafed their poor cheeks raw.

These tears can be found under Makeup and it is under Masks.

These tears are "skintone" based so they take a slight flesh color to blend with skintones much better and more realistically. This is why I've also created tears for those who have sims with darker skin. Now you don't have to worry about darker sims looking they have "White tears". So when you go into bodyshop and see the manequin face with "orange" and "brown" tears, don't be weirded out by it. (:

Hope you find it interesting!

Shoot! Why, why, why weren't these out when I was doing my sim music video?! And I just posted it on YouTube. LOL! You did a really great job. I wish these would've been out when I was doing my video. Thanx!

Very realistic tears.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.
