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.

Yeah, so, I really like making glasses. Can't say they're easy, but they are challenging and fun, and there's tons of pics of different styles out there to choose from. So... moar glasses! Other styles are tentatively planned including simpler ones, but I just really like the look of these sort so I had to do 'em. I'll probably be back on little wireframes and half-framed/no-framed type stuff soon if this trend continues.

A bit geekier than the last set (hence the name) and in more sunglass styles (but still quite a few eyeglass ones as well). As these seemed like they'd be cute in some fun prints, I did the uv mapping a bit, well, better on these than the last set.

These glasses work for both genders and for all ages except toddler (no, I won't be doing them for toddler - if you know how and want to, PM me and we'll talk).

The eyeglasses (clear lenses) come in six colours: black, red, hot pink, blue, regular leopard, and pink leopard. The sunglasses (tinted lenses) come in six colours as well: black, red, hot pink, regular leopard, pink leopard, and my personal favourite out of the set, brown retro flowers with blueish lenses.

Make sure to download both the mesh file (filename starts with AMESH) and at least one of the recolour sets for this to work in your game! I figured some people might not want the sunglasses or whatever, so I packed 'em up separately. As always everything's clearly labelled so you can delete anything you don't want. Just make sure to keep the mesh file and at least one recolour, okay?

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.

I love these, but at the moment, I'm in the middle of a trouble time with my Sims game. I think that it due to the fact that I got the base game and my Pets EP in Hong Kong and my Uni, NL, and OFB EP's here in Australia.

I'm only installing my base game at the moment and downloading the minimum amount of CC, but as soon as I get a new base game and Pets EP, I will most definitely be downloading this. Thanks so much for so many glasses options that are so realistic!

This set is GREAT! I'm definitely going to have some more sims with glasses.
I agree with the retro flowers, that's extra special.

although i must admit my favorite creation by you are hair meshes, this is also quite lovely. Lets hope it doesn't suffer from the flashing blue bug.

I wear glasses and my sims often do. This is a great addition, because glasses fashion changes very fast.Keep on this way, plz!

awesome! i've been looking for some cute glasses that aren't just recolors of the rectangle glasses that come with the game.
thanks bunches!
#10 Old 14th Jan 2008 at 4:54 PM
Just the kind of glasses I'd like to wear in RL. Many of my friends wear glasses even if they don't need it, just for getting this nice and intellectual look, and this model is the most popular! Thank you HP and ciao.

Thanks for doing this. Decent, casual glasses are so rare! I've downloaded fashionable sunglasses but I hardly use them on my sims because they make no sense for everyday wear.
#12 Old 14th Jan 2008 at 5:07 PM
Absolutely fabulous!! I am sooo happy you like making glasses 'cuz I like playing with them in my game.

THANK YOU for sharing with us!
#13 Old 14th Jan 2008 at 5:26 PM
These remind me of my glasses, thanks so much.

desperation makes you look like a tool

You can't begin to know how much I love you for making new glasses. I ADORE glasses, but I hate Maxis ones. This is the one thing I've felt was missing from the game, most things I could find in CC, but not this. Until now!

I will download absolutely every style you make!

Very very elegant and I don't think they are at all geeky! Thank you ever so much.

As an optician, I think it's awesome to see someone supporting the glasses-wearers of this world! I used your oval specs as soon as I got them yesterday!
