You need to go to this thread and download the global skinpreserver

If there are other skintones that you would like skinchangers for, I'll see about making a skinchanger or perhaps bobcatben will do one just PM me or bobcatben and ask.

These are fantastic, really useful for when modding Townies to fit into your communities.



EDIT: I have just tried to use these in game. I used one of each vial on four Sims - and they all changed into the pale colour. I am now downloading the Global file, and seeing if that works.

Due to budget cuts, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice.

Is the change permanent and genetic? Bobcatben's thread that you linked to said that it's only temporary.

You said that we need to download the global skinpreserver from that thread, but which one do I download? One says Inteen on it. Is that for people who have Inteenimator? I have Inteenimator. Do I download that one?

1st Question: I'm not sure try it with both versions see which ones work

2nd Question: As far as I know the vials can be removed after use

I could do that BUT this is only a mod of the original code so I'm not the person you need to talk contact bobmanben about getting this as an asp reward

Does this change their genetics or just their surface appearance?

I've made some mods for The Sims 1 -- yes, The Sims ONE :-) -- which you can find at http://corylea.com/Sims1ModsByCorylea.html

Does it use the same coding as the potion to make wolves?
I created a character named Vera Wolf and was intended to test the wolf potion.
She transformed into somewhatever and kept the dress she was using before (a H&M blue stripped dress). Started to walk around like a Gorilla and first time I saw the wolf skin in game. What do I have to say about it? Err Uh, ah yah, - No comments.

Good idea of yours if so. I have cases that my Sims show up with wrong skin and would be nice to have something that I could change in game. Up now I use the SimPE simsurgery - but I have to exit the game many times.

Thanks.

I didn't design the coding but the vials will only alter the skin and cause slight nausia

I don't seem to be able to get the dark tanned skin -- it always comes out like the regular tan. Is this happenng to anyone else? Any suggestions?

Otherwise, these are super, thanks!

I, too, was having the same issue (always the pale skin was applied); I tried in a UNI+NL mini-game, and also in an "All EPs" mini-game, with the same results.
So I investigated a little the packages (hope you don't mind... I'm a very curious person ) and I've read the 32-bit GUIDs that you have put in the Text List 0x303A, line 1 (i.e. the line that should contain the code of the skin to be applied). I expected to find the usual Maxis codes:
00000001-0000-0000-0000-000000000000 (pale)
00000002-0000-0000-0000-000000000000 (med tan)
00000003-0000-0000-0000-000000000000 (dark tan)
00000004-0000-0000-0000-000000000000 (dark)
but, instead, I've found:
de9724b0-4e73-0331-3775-e78f7a307694 (potion #1)
f6e59c97-4f72-57ac-c614-daaeb2f62a8c (potion #2)
04ea7358-409d-fd54-5eb6-609dbad6fa73 (potion #3)
5dcfb387-4c1d-6126-c96c-9bb6e872530a (potion #4)

I've searched into all the game files for these skin codes, but I couldn't find them: no wonder that my sims can't correctly change skin...
I replaced the values in the TL 0x303A, line 1, with the standard Maxis values and now the vials work correctly...

So, what are those code? Do you have some default skin replacement in your game? Or am I supposed to download additional skins somewhere else?

I'm asking this to you, and not to bobcatben, because his Alien Skin vial works fine (in the Alien vial, the text list reports the code 6baf064a-85ad-4e37-8d81-a987e9f8da46, which corresponds to the standard Maxis alien skintone).

I think I need to re-upload because I found this problem and corrected it BUT I thought I had uploaded the fixed versions I'll check my uploades again and see if I have the wrong copy uploaded

If you downloaded before the 28th you might still have the false copys

Just letting everyone kno there are loads of skintones on this site ANY others but so far I have only SCVed 1, I won't rip your head off if you request something for example drwhorules asked me to create a new foxtail and ears combi
half an hour later it was uploaded and ready to use

I can complete an SCV in 5 minutes so if there is a skin you want a precreated sim to use link me to the skin and I'll make a SCV for it, then you just download it get your sim to use it and volia it's that easy
