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.
I really like Golbeere's wonderful freckled Skin . But I am total crazy about freckles so I need another freckled Skin in my game. Hope you like my recolor.

The Skin is a recolor of Oepu’s Skin. Big Thank You to her for letting me edit her Skin.

I have changed the lips of the skin using Louis skin and lipgloss.

The eyes which are included on the skin are Nouk’s beautiful green eye. Thank You for giving me permission to use them.

The male version (teen up to elder) uses AllenABQs hair . (Red for the Teens and Adult, Grey for the Elder)

The skin comes in one light color with freckles all over the body for all ages. Even the Babies have very light freckles.

Thank you to Numenor for his BaseGameStarter. I have made a new version of the skin with the LegacyBS. So the skin should now work without Pets.

The Models do not wear any makeup on the photos.

I have added different hair colors. Now there are also freckles for Non-Red-Heads.
There is also a new version of the skin without any hair.

Which File?
All the skins are made with the LegacyBS so they should work without "Pets".

Love the skin! Are you planning to do other colours for the male hair, incase we have a sim using this skin hook up with a non-redhead sim? It would be strange for a black haired person to have ginger body hair

Thank you for your comments.

@Tramen: You are right. There should be more colors. I have done them and will upload them. Thank you for the idea.

@Masterofallvideogames: Oepu's skin I used has not been officially published yet. She just showed this version in her thread at the .
(But if your question was about if the skin has nipples or not - yes, there are nipples. )

Very beautiful.

My eyes are just a little sweaty today.
They've been looking around a lot, searching for you,
They've been looking for you,
Even though I told them not to.

Weee! Looks so beautiful in the screenshots! And nipples yay! Even though there's the censor blurr I guess some people just like to know they're there. Well unless one has quaxi's mod that is. :bites lip: Ahem uhh, well anyway it's a beautiful skin! Well done and thank you! I'll definately be putting this to some use if I can download it :is on piddly dialup:. What exactly is this talk of hair colors with relation to the skin though? Are the eyebrows a part of the skin or are we referring to....uhh...well... perhaps it's best not to ask. As Minsc said "Better to not ask questions best left to aged sages..." right?

Thanks so much!! I have freckles all over me and it's good to find a skintone that has freckles everywhere instead of just on the face!

Thanks for taking the time to do so much detail! The skins look great!! Being a redhead myself, it's nice to see some skins that show some of the variety humans have. And also thanks for making a non-hairy version. Not all of us are apes.

Can Sims inherit this skin from their parents? If so do I have to make a new sim with it in CAS before it will get into the gene pool?

Thank you for your nice comments. I am glad you like the skin.

@Inge Jones: The skin will be inherit like most costum skins. I did not modify the dominance of the genes for the freckles.
If so do I have to make a new sim with it in CAS before it will get into the gene pool?

I am not sure if I got the point.
The skin is not a default skin. If you want a Sim with this skintone in your neighborhood, you will have to create at least one new Sim with this skin. The children of this Sim can of course inherit the skin.
Hope this answer will help you.

I've had these in my game for.. geeze a year now. I completely forgot to come back and say THANK YOU! They look beautiful in game. I use Oepu's skins as defaults, and I gave these skin genetics so that they'd be inherited. (Finally had someone born in game with freckles.)
