This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I got a little inspired after Phaenoh started on her great default replacement glasses set (click there for more cool eyeglasses for your sims - no mesh required!)...

Got me to thinking how few really decent eyeglasses there are for sims... there's a lot of funky high-fashion sunglasses out there and stuff, but even with Phae's set, there's really not THAT many true glasses for your sims with less than perfect vision.

So, I made these - simple, basic thin-framed oval glasses, the sort you'd see on real people (and quite a bit less chunky and large than Maxis glasses, which have always seemed huge to me). As a result these may not fit every sim perfectly - sims with nose bridges that stick out really far or who have very wide cheeks will probably get some clipping - these glasses don't distort with the sim's face - but they should work on a pretty wide range nonetheless. No nose rests as sim nose width is variable but width of that part cannot be changed dynamically to match.

I might end up making a few more types - been plinking around online at different styles, seeing what would be the most useful and generic for a wide range of peoples' self-sims and stuff. We shall see.

These glasses work for both genders and for all ages except toddler. I have done them in four colours: charcoal/black, silver, gold, and black frames with sunglass lenses. Files are labelled so you can delete any colours you don't want.

These do not have special bin numbers to allow for accessory multi-wearability: all OTHER custom accessories than glasses should be re-bin-numbered to be worn with glasses and other accessories, but it's not necessary for glasses (you wouldn't wear two pairs of glasses at once), hence why I didn't do so.

THANK YOU!!

I've been waiting for glasses like this. Is there any chance that half-rims could be made of these simply?

Much love for making glasses that non-model/fashionista Sims could use <3 The size of the Maxis pairs always bothered me as well, these conversely look much more proportionate. Thanks for making these!

Oddwen_F - That's one of the other versions I'm considering making and wouldn't be hard for me to edit from these. Might do, if I continue making more like I'm kinda thinking I may (or may get busy and forget about like I do with so many projects). We shall see.

Yay! These will get a lot of use in my game. I have a bunch of Sims that wear glasses but only two pair I like.

I was wondering, is there anyway possible for you to be able to make some simple glasses enabled for toddlers too? Or is that not possible? Also I love these they are much needed.

Toddler glasses are possible - I just don't really have any interest in doing them as they're a bit of a hassle to do and I'd never use them myself. If someone who could do them wants to convert these, PM me and we'll talk.

Ooh! Lovely I'm actually making glasses-wearing sims for the first time these days all thanks to these downloads (maxis glasses look bad, what can I say).
