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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This time I upload a Maxis matching skin regarding my new project. It's different to my other skintones.

It's not glossy or shiny. It's for those of you, who like the maxis skintones, but want them just a little bit prettier. Especially nose and lips.

It comes in 4 colors: light, tan, darktan, dark. It matches with the Maxis colors.

For defaults look here: Sadisticpyro has made some. Thank you!: Default Replacements of Oepu's maxis-match Skintones]

Skin Type: Maxis-Match

it looks nice but I don't really understand the differences between the original skins and yours...

Lips, nose, and eyes look different to me, just looking at the preview images.

Thanks, this is great. I like having non-shiny skins for my Sims.

I love these touches you have added on maxis skintones. The lips are just great, thank you.
#5 Old 21st Aug 2007 at 10:20 PM
Women's breasts are different as well.

These are awesome by the way. Is there any chance of a default version?

These have details that the Maxis ones do not.

These look wonderful! I'm not really a fan of the Maxis skintones because I don't think there are enough details on the faces but yours thankfully have them ;-) Great job and thanks a lot!

Thank you so much! They look very realistic and you can clearly see the difference between them and the defaults Maxis put in the game.

The skin is for those people who like the Maxis Skins, but want prettier noses, lips and so on. It's not shiny or glossy and I've tried to make them very close to the originals, but a little bit more attractive. It has no intimate details, because Maxis skins don't have too. I haven't changed so many things on the body, because I didn't no how far I can go without making it to realistic.

I can do a default version, but this will take some time (because I'm holiday next 3 weeks). But everybody is welcome to do this.

Here some comparison pictures of the texture. Look at the ears, teeth, mouth, eyes, nose, breasts, collar bone, bottom.

Normally I don't like maxis-like skintones, but something about these is just sooo appealing! Defaults... anyone? Please?

Ooooh. I like these! As some of you may know, I really really prefer Maxis-like stuff.
I like the original Maxis skintones, but I like yours as well. Especially the mouth, the eyes, the teeth and the womans breasts. The only thing I don't really like are the ears and the nose.

But all together you did a good job, 'cause I'm not eager to please if it's about a skintone.

Edit: Oh and I also lóve the collarbones.

I love these! I would definitely try them if they were defaults. I don't use any other custom skin tones.

thank you for this, the shiney skintones are overwhelming and far from realistic we need more of these

These look very nice, not at all flat and drab like the original. Love the shine-lessness.

Very well done, they look much better and still natural enough, thanks and have a nice holiday!
#22 Old 22nd Aug 2007 at 10:00 AM
It's been a long time since I used the maxis skins, so I had almost forgotten how hidious the lips are on those.
I absolutely love your teeth.
