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 am currently unable to create a Eugenic's Skin due to being unable to find the DDS utilities. Until then, none of my skintones will be allowed to be uploaded anywhere modified as such. When I can get them done, I am planning on doing them myself. Thank you! ~ Puppetfish 7/22/12

Aaaahhhhh.....Tarchannen III.....a beautiful lush oasis in space.

Or......maybe not.

This M-Class Planet is home to an Alien species that reproduces by implanting DNA into an unsuspecting host body. Unfortunately for Geordi LaForge and Susanna Leijten they were part of an Away Team searching for a missing Federation Outpost. Five years later they are feeling the urge to relocate and what's up with all these blue veins popping up all over?!!

But not to fear! Dr. Crusher whipped up an antidote faster than you can say, "Make it so," and they are back to their normal, adorable, human selves!

**Details - Details - Details**

This skin is genetic. The babies start out blue and by adulthood they have gained all their veins. The skin was meant to be slightly blurry because these Aliens are light sensitive, and prefer to hide in the dark so they can sneak up and tap you on the back. (Hey! They gotta have kids somehow!!!) In the show, the veins only showed up under ultraviolet light, and this was my effort at recreating that feeling ! (And this is as clear as my computer will allow these pics to get! Honest!!

I've included each age group in the pictures, but for some reason the baby was born with eyebrows. So I had to go over to www.InSIMenator.net and download their InSIMenator, using the makeover feature, to remove them!

Their are two files for this reason>

The skintone is for all of you who would rather create your own faces! (It's the one with the numbers)

The Sim is for those who would like to use my version, and is packed with eyes and a nifty little leaf swimsuit.

Only download one version!

**Step into the Ready Room for some final thoughts**

Please do not upload this Sim or skintone to the Exchange or paysites.

Please do not upload him and claim him as your own.

Give me credit if you use the skintone somewhere, and maybe let me know so I can see your creation too!

I think that's about it!

Thank you!

I want to thank Melodie9 for her bald heads for the kids in the pictures!

Great concept and wonderful execution! And I loved the way you told the story.

And the back story looks like a perfect match for Wintermuteai1's Happy Lucky Impregnation Kit!

Wow! The response to this guy is wonderful!

Thank you to all you who've downloaded and thanked me and replied!!!!

It took me forever to get him up to the correct standards for MTS2. I think he was rejected at least six times, or more. But the rejection forced me to learn how to work my paint program -

So, once again, THANK YOU and happy Simming!

Oh thank you! He started out kindof like a blue blob, LOL. He was my first skintone, and I had to learn about how to shadow and all that stuff.

Thank you for this skin! BTW, how did you draw the veins on this? I've been trying to create a rock skin with semi-glowing lava veins and can't quite get it right.
