This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
UPDATE 10 AUGUST 2012: Added a new version of the clear glasses with recolourable lenses. Please note that these only produce a subtle, delicate tint, but still look nice. Now your sims can have rose-tinted glasses!

These funky-looking small round wire-framed glasses are found in the Accessories/Glasses section in CAS, and are enabled for men and women from Teen to Elder. They sit a bit down the bridge of the nose and would suit nerdy students, prissy schoolmarms, or old professor types. They are recolourable/patternable and have one colour channel:



Per the update regarding recolourable lenses, the first two screenshots in the below picture are of the original plain lenses, and the third screenie shows off the new recolourables in a rose-coloured tint:



With the recolourable lenses version, the strongest lens colour is obtained by setting the brightness slider in CaST all the way to the left (brightest) and the colour to its strongest and most saturated. The further to the right you move the brightness slider, the more the colour will fade. These particular lenses only have a delicate tint, so you will probably want to just keep it on the brightest setting.

Following several requests, here is now a sunglasses version of the small round glasses:



('Ozzy'-like model was made by simply changing Cornelia Goth into a man and giving her different eyebrows!!! Spooky! But for a good ready-made Ozzy sim, check out Monca's Ozzy here: http://www.modthesims.info/d/386070 )


INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS:

Unzip the .zip file(s), and copy the .package file(s) to your Mods\Packages folder. For each item, you only need the one file for both men and women, as it is enabled for both.

If you don't have a Mods\Packages folder and/or don't know how to install .package files, please see full instructions here: http://www.modthesims.info/wiki.php...g_Package_Files


Polygon Counts:
Frame: 566
Lenses: 176

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.

Love the glasses. Any chance of getting the round version done up as a separate sunglasses download? I wore a pair of sunglasses that looked like these in the 80s.

Always love to see new glasses =)

I'm guessing not, but are these compatible with the glasses sliders?

I might make sunglasses versions of both at some point - if so, I'll add them to this page.

I haven't tried the glasses slider, but as far as I know, I think it's compatible with all glasses? I can only say try it and see if it works!

Oh, sorry I think you're right, was thinking of the hat sliders that only work with certain hats!

Hey Esmeralda, I was wondering if you could make the second glasses into shades too.
Then everyone can make their own Ozzy Osbourne :P
No, but really. Please do it, since I've been looking for sunglasses like these ever since I watched the Matrix.
