My Ocean Jewel Eyes collection is my first upload to MTS2 and I hope those of you who download them and use the eyes in your game will enjoy them. I've used them a lot lately in my own game and they seem to work well with all types of skintones and look good on both male and female Sims. They're obviously based on various colors you might come across while you're on an ocean voyage so I decided to use my pirate lass Peg as a model for my eye collection.

*NEW COLORS*


Note: The thumbnails are in-game pics that feature Peg wearing the Red Coral, Drift Wood and Sea Foam eye colors.

Model Info:
Name: Peg "The Siren" O'Sullivan (created by me in Body Shop)
Hair: XM Sims
Skin: Ephemera
Makeup & Eyebrows: Ephemera, Rensim, Bruno, Kamikitten and icedmango
Dress & Hat: Shays and Shannanisims

Info: These eyes were created with Photoshop on my Mac. Please feel free to use my uploads in your own creations or modify them as you wish. I only ask that you DO NOT upload them to pay sites and please credit me with a mention or a link. And last but not least, please do not claim my work as your own! Thanks for reading - Machinedoll aka Doll in the Machine

*Updated 8.14.08* Two new colors added!

Love the names. Very pretty eyes and overall presentation. If only I could be as good with photoshop, sigh. Are the normal colored ones binned? Any chance of making the red ones into vampire eyes? Not really a request, might do it myself, but if you're already going to, no reason for me to do it.

Thank you! Since I'm on a Mac I don't have access to SimPE or lots of other great tools but I had fun making these eyes in Photoshop. They're not binned and if you'd like to make the red ones into vampire eyes, please do!

I think the red ones would make great vamp eyes but I don't think I'll ever get around to making them myself.

These are beautiful! I love the textures and shine. Are you planning on making more colors (particularly more natural ones, or darker shades) in the future? I love these, so I'd like to see more with the same texture and shine. Either way, thanks so much for sharing this lovely set.

I don't download items for bodyshop, and I rarely click on posts for eye or lip colors, but this post had me intrigued. Wonderful presentation! I love the name of your thread and the screenshots/thumbnails are great as well! Great job! Very cool!

Awww. I just looked and you're right, there's no Mac version of SimPE. It requires MS .NET so I see why. Meh. If you *really* wanted to use SimPE, you could make your Mac dual boot and install Vista (shudder!) on a different partition, but I sure wouldn't blame you if you don't want to do that. I don't know of any Mac tools just for binning eyes / hair.

Wow! Just...wow! These are stunning. All the colors are beautiful and you put an awesome presentation together. I love it when people go that extra step to make their presentations awesome. Shows me they really care about their work. The names are very cool. I love what you did with them. Yet another thing I like to see people do with their uploads. And your model is simply gorgeous! Thank you so so much

Thanks so much for all the positive feedback everyone! I really appreciate it and I hope you enjoy using them in your own game.

snspinelli - I was working on some more subtle green and brown shades but decided to limit the number of eyes to eight. Maybe I'll upload the others later on if you'd like me to.

CatOfEvilGenius - Not having easy access to programs like SimPE, HomeCrafter, CleanInstaller, etc. is the bane of my existence but I've been trying to work around it. I really wish some creative individual would adapt these great tools for Mac users but I've been looking into running Bootcamp on my Mac so I could use some of these programs. I need to install Mac's Leopard operating system though to use Bootcamp and I've been avoiding it due to the bad feedback it's gotten from other Mac users I know. Hopefully I'll get over my fears of a new operating system soon! On the other hand... I wish I could afford a PC just for my gaming needs.

Thanks so much for the great eye colors! I've been looking for a briliantly sharp green for AGES. I also like the lovely names! Great job for your first try, too! I know that I didn't do a very good job, but I'm still working on it...

Um...gotta stop typing, cause my cat is walking across the keyboard. Get off the scacebar!!!

I love these eyes.
Sadly I can't download them as I do not have WinRar.

Brill colours by the way

Thanks for the feedback everyone!

PsychoBunny - I get almost all my fonts at dafont so it probably came from there.

Xajemm - I uploaded a rar file. Why can't you download zip files? I'm on a Mac and with a Firefox or Safari browser and the latest version of basic (free) Stuffit Expander you can open zip files easily and without any problems.
