Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Updated Dec 8th, 2008 to add the Tan Option.

Yes - finally, you now have the option to add a tan - however, you need Bon Voyage for this new feature.

Sunburn/Frostburn needs Seasons
Tan/Sunburn/Frostburn needs Bon Voyage

Only install one of the packages! Delete previous versions.


Need to have your sim tanned ? sunburned? frostburned? Then this is the thing for you! Just click on the crate & choose your effect.

The crate can be purchased from the Miscellaneous\Miscellaneous category for $1. Simply click on Tan, Sunburn or Frostburn & the sim will become tanned, sunburned or frostburned.

There will be some lag involved - just like when the sim really goes into distress, but, this sunburn & frostburn do not involve distress. They just give the sim the appropriate overlays. You can remove the effects by clicking remove Tan, remove Sunburn or remove Frostburn, again, there is a bit of lag because the game has to locate then add or remove the associated overlays.

You absolutely must have Seasons for this to work! You must have Bon voyage for the tan overlay to work.


P.S. - I also added the option for Rosy Cheeks to both packages.

Great Mod! I believe the people at EA should make the sunburns realistic though. Sunburn --> Tan --> Normal :D. Well Thank you For this wonderful product. I will be trying it out.

This is great. It is clever of you to make a sim to have sunburn and frostburn.

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.

I've spent all week trying to get it to work for anything other than what the game provides - with no luck so far. But, I am not gving up!

The only reason I did this mod was to see if I could get body overlays working for tattoos, anatomy parts, multipart clothing, etc. Well & to see what the sunburn actually looked like I tried eveything to get them to get sunburned but they never did

Does this work for custom skintones or maxis skins only?

I didn't test it on custom skintones, but it should work because it really has nothing to do with the actual skintone file. It works like the Vampire overlay - it just overlays the color on the existing skin.

Nah, I don't know a thing about creating stuff for the game, except recoloring... I hope you will succeed with this without cracking up your head.

Not familiar with frost burn, however I am familiar with freeze burn. Ah well, learn something new everyday!
