Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is a set of default replacement eyes that have a bit of color and sparkle. The eyes have a tint of purple, blue, and blue green to them that mixes with the eye color you chose in CAS to create a dynamic, multicolored eyes that look interesting and attractive. The alpha also includes small speckles of white so that when you chose a darker eye color, you can see a subtle glitter in the eye.

The downside with these eyes is it is impossible to get a solid grey eye color. For all other colors, you can find a shade that will not show any of the inherent colors, but the grey will show the blues and purples of the texture. This is what they look like when you choose white as an eye color:

And here are a few different eye colors to show how they look with different tints and shades:

Install these like you would any other .package file, but if you have any other default eyes you must remove them before installing these. After installing, delete the simCompositorCache.package from My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 to have existing sims take on these eyes.

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.

Eeeek OMG Winter your avatar is freaky!

These eyes are beautiful, I won't be downloading right now because atm I'm happy with the ones from Sim e'Napule but I just had to say I love your sim. She looks like a cat Person, I'd love it if you uploaded her. I'll post this as a thanks though because I do love the eyes and the sim, Great job.I think she's only the second very unique Sim I've seen in sims 3 the other is Michael Jackson.

BTW I think those white eyes look amazing.

I like the intensity of the colors, purely amazing! thank you<3

Thank you!! These eyes are absolutely gorgeous! You've actually inspired me to get back into playing the Sims again. I played it once and then turned it off but I'm going to go back to playing it now! Thanks!!

Fantastic Eyes!
PERFECT! These are exactly the eyes I was hoping to find, they're absolutely gorgeous! Thanks!

I wanted to add that I was looking for a permanent eye-type, not something to just use for a while, so I've been really searching. Since we only have the option to use one eye-type in-game, I wanted the eyes I finally chose to be, well... the *PERFECT* replacement for the game originals... and, as far as I'm concerned, I think these are. I LOVE them!

These are gorgeous, great job. I would download them but I prefer the eye replacements I already have. If these were smaller I would TOTALLY choose them over the ones I have.

Hey, you've been gone a long time, but I thought I'd drop a note to say that I've tried out a lot of default replacement eyes at this point, and these are still my favorite.
