This is a multi-colored eye replacement. It has golden highlights around the pupil, and some green around the edge of the eyes (Although it's subtle.)


1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract: Use WinRAR (Windows) or Stuffit (Mac) to extract the .package file(s) from the .rar or .zip file(s).

3. Place any .package files you extract in your Sim 3 Mods\Packages folder. (The Sims 3 is usually installed in C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\, so you'll place files in C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages). See the FAQ below for more information.

4. Note that any Sims3Pack files can just be double clicked on and they will install using the EA Launcher.


After installing, please delete the simCompositorCache.package from My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3. It okay, It will re-spawn once you start the game.

Please note that you can only have one set of default replacements at one time. Be sure to remove any other default replacement eyes you may have before installing these.

The BrightEyes_Miniie071409.package file goes into your Program files/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Mods/Packages directory.

ENJOY!


Please do not re-upload this anywhere else, and if you are going to edit them, ask me for permission.

Eye Style: Human Realistic

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.

These are gorgeous!! Wonderful job!

Are the gold and green 'hard-coded' to the eyes so that any color-shift will always have the gold/green or does the gold/green color-shift too?

Not that it matters much, but just curious if the highlights could be different colors?

I like your eyes...one thing I've noticed with yours is that they have the inner corners defined....I've been wanting that. Good work and thank you for sharing!

It's hard coded, but they blend with the other colors well. If you choose like a darker green, the highlight will look like its green as well.
I'm currently working on non-replacement eyes that can be customized.

Thanks. Yeah, from your samples they do seem to blend well.

Good luck on the new eyes. I'll be keeping a look out (lol) for them. It's great too that you're trying to make them non-replacement.

Wow, great eyes. It is much needed since the base eyes are so dull. Then again, the people at Maxis don't seem to be much into design, as seen by the bad eyes and clothes that come with base games.
