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.
Update:28th Aug, 2010
Add separate packages(Default Male/Female/Child/Toddler) for various use.

These are default and non-default face skins. For both gender, all ages (toddler to elder).
These faces are MAXIS/EA-Match type, like my "Ultra-Plain Eyes".

And I uploaded a package of "Face Overlay Fix" together.
This fix removes female's unnatural lipstick and cleans eye white. This function is the same as missy harries' and -Shady-'s. My version is using EA's white of eye. All previews use Face Overlay FIX.

Same color tone range as EA. More realistic details around eyes. Moderately sharp nose. Pretty nostrils. "Pudding"-free shading.


- For both genders, all ages (Toddler to Elder)
- Requires No EP.
- Tested in the game version 4.2.32x

- Requires UI Mod by Rez Delnava
- EA default 6 colors (separate 2 packages, as "Natural Tone" and "Fantasy Tone".)

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.

^ Done and done! He's up on Tamo's site.

Tamo, I'm shocked there aren't more people praising your work here. It's somewhat subtle, but a FAR superior substitute for EA's puddingtastic skins. In fact, I've yet to see anyone else make custom skins that improve upon the defaults so well, without completely changing how a sim looks. Awesome job!

Thank you, guys!

Uberdubie : Oh thanks! It's all right with me. I think EA-Match taste is not so popular in TS3, and many people have already downloaded these at my blog. And I feel I got too much enough feedback from you all.

chaa_screammy : I'm using a old "photoshop elements" for trimming for screen shots. But I didn't photoshopped. When the reduced-size photos blurred, I just use a little bit "sharpen" filter. I think the most important thing is the lighting!

Thanks to all!

Foxer_redfox : That guys is a "almost" Cage.? I'm not sure he is Nicholas Cage or not. haha. But yes certainly, I've imagined him when I created that sim.
I'm constantly creating a Nicholas Cage-like sim. I can't stop creating a Nicholas Cage-like sim. It's my guilty pleasure!! :D

Can you use this face fix with a custom skintone? I use this one skintone, but I don't like the face fix it comes with, so I was thinking about using this instead.

koolyaid : Hi. My face fix is able to use with other skins.
But if the skin not contain face overlays. (Custom teeth, custom eye white are using face overlays for overwriting defaults). Hope this helps.

You should do the same for body default replacements,
I love these face fixes and your default eyes

Hey Tamo,

First I must thank you for that beautiful face.

Just one question:
Is it possible to use 234jiaoTS3skin with your FaceOverlay_Fix_EA_Whites, so that only the eyes and theeth aren't inserted. I want just that beautiful face.

Deathlicon : Hi, and thanks.
Technically it's possible. But I think 234jiao's skin doesn't need fix.
I've checked 234jiao's skin(V9/9.2/6) and they didn't have face overlay textures. It means they doesn't replace eye whites and teeth.

Are you using Aikea's multicolored eyes? It includes custom eye whites and teeth(=face overlay textures). If use my fix and these kind of eyes at the same time, I don't know what happen. Perhaps, either file is given priority over other. I guess but I'm not sure. Hope this helps.
