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.
Now, this skintone replaces the skintone of the purple genie with Pixie Gloom by Enayla. It took me a while to get it to work, since it's not just a point and click process, but I think it turned out quite well. Makes the genie look more mystic.

You NEED Free Time for this. The genie does not appear outside of Free Time. And this skin is not usable by players.
Hopefully any other revisions will be quick, since I know how to make it now.

Pixie Gloom is one of Enayla's "Pixie Forests" skins, located at MTS2 at this link

Skin Type:
      Fantasy: Fantasy (demons & fairies etc)

Oh this is awesome! I dislike the eye-searing purple default. Which eyes (if you used an eye texture replacement too) did you use? I can't tell much from the screens except that they don't look like the scary Maxis ones.

Same place as the skin by the looks of it. I think it's the eye that 'belongs' with Gloom

I gave a spin to the replacement this morning before I went to work. It is a great replacement. Thank you.

Been hoping for something like this for a while, the default skin is so ugly. Many thanks!

The eyes are the envoy eyes that come with the skin package. They fit very well.

Thank you, it's lovely! Have you seen her newest skins on InSIM? There's one called Pixie Bruise that looks a lot like Gloom but without the details on the forehead. And she has some lovely new supernatural skins too.

I just noticed her new skins on InSIM. However, for the genie, it is a lot of work. It took me about 3 hours (no kidding here) to figure out HOW to make it look like it belongs in the game. Also the genie's skin is a little different than other sims. It has the clothing texture on it, and if I did a quick copy and paste, then the genie would be topless with bumps where the clothing textures would be.
So, all in all, I do think this genie is great for what I was trying to do.

Thank you! Even though the genie doesn't hang around long, I couldn't deal with the EAxis purple.

I LOVE this in my game! It's just absolutely perfect.

I did have one suggestion though, and it actually bugged me at first. I wish you had a version that didn't include eyes. I downloaded a default replacement just for the genie that I was looking forward to trying out, but your skin overrode it. XD I did end up liking the eyes you added, but still, just a suggestion.

Thank you!
