ETA: szielins has made two lower-impact correctors, which also take care of mis-colored eyelashes and mouth interiors. Check them out over here: http://www.modthesims2.com/member/s...ad.php?t=253167.



Have you ever noticed that heavily shadowed eyes or ones with tear ducts don't animate very well? I have some lovely eyes that look great while the sim is looking forward, but if they do any animation that involves looking around, a creepy black or pink smear appears opposite the iris, which is more than a little gross.

I freely admit that I'm just as guilty of making eyes like that as just about everyone else here.

This little bit of makeup is designed to fix that. It works with my eyes, Enayla's older eyes, RenSim's eyes, and should work with any eyes that used Louis' eyes as a guide. (So, most eyes out there). It's a multiselectable blush that layers well above full-face makeup, so you should be able to also use it with the vast majority of contacts. Even if you don't mind the odd shadows in gameplay, it might be useful to pick this up for photo-taking and storytelling.

This sclera is part of a much, much larger eye-related collection I just posted over at InSimenator.net: http://www.insimenator.net/showthread.php?t=62504. There are 53 eyes with this new sclera, as well as matching contacts and a default set. I'm not posting them over here because it would take too long, and I'm thoroughly sick of even looking at these files.

How cool!

So, is this a full-face make-up?

It's a blush. It's been hacked to layer over full-face make-up since some creators use that type of makeup for their contacts.

I have no idea. I have some of his eyes, but they'll need binning before I'll use them. So.

Goodness - this might make it worth going for more realistic eyes - thanks

Now that I thought about it, whenever I leave my sim idle sometimes he would blink and instead of the eyelid covering the eye, his irises would turn white and his eyelid would suddenly disappear for a second, before his eyes return to normal. It was kind of creepy. so hopefully with this it will function a little better. Thanks so much!

This is awesome. Thanks so much.

Although with NL, any sim with "make-up" as a turn off is disgusted by everyone else. Ugh, silly sims.

so the white thingie is called sclera? if only i'd known that... i came across this download ages ago and thought "if i had custom eyes this would be very useful... but i don't" and then i got custom eyes. every single time those damn sims looked up i died a little inside. so i went on trying to find this with every possible name i could think of beacause i was too lazy to flip through all the make up downloads. anyway, i eventually found it and can't be happier. thanks for fixing that!
