This is my first attempt at making any Sims item for any game.

These are some default eye replacements I've been playing with the past few days, and I figured it would be best to upload them in the same post instead of individually. Excuse the names of the eyes; I'm not very creative and they have nothing to do with anything, really. If these eyes look similar to any other replacements, I apologize. If you think they do, it wasn't my intention for them to. I was just playing around and they came out like this.

Des_Eyes was my first (successful) attempt at making replacements.

Ima_Eyes is basically the same thing as Des_Eyes, but I played with it some more and changed the contrast.

Rose_Eyes was just me messing around. I'll be honest when I say that I didn't spend much time on them, but I still like how they came out.

Place the file in (or the equivalent of wherever your game is installed): C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages

Remember that you can only use one default eye replacement, and they will replace the EA originals (until you remove the file).

I hope you guys like them.

Additional Credits:
Aikea_Guinea for the tutorial. Thanks for that, 'cause I'd never know how to do this on my own.

I think that's all the credits...

Eye Type: Default
Eye Style: Human

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
