I finally found some time to make this quite pale Non-default skin-tone for whole sim family (except for babies). It took me a while to finish this because when I first began this project I spent too much time on making fine details and then afterward I realized how the Sims 3 blurs textures really badly that I got fed up and moved the skin work aside. So some days ago I decided it was time to finish some of my too many unfinished works. I've been painting several skin files and editing them over and over again trying to make them look very smooth because I cant stand rough pixel look on the skin - sometimes it's tiring to be perfectionist ... yet I'm still not satisfied with the result but oh well, if I won't stop now I never will, so maybe some of you like this. Hit the thanks button if you appreciate the effort I put here to make it as good as possible,Thank you

UPDATE:
If someone had a trouble where this skin-tone turned your sim pitch black there is now fixed file that should work. Also I would appreciate a feedback on that, if it worked on not. Thank you.

Technical information:
- toddler and child have same face texture but different bodies.
- Teen, Young adult, adult and elder have same body and face textures. (of course own version for female and male)
- There are 4 different color ramps - 3 of my own (Brown, pink and yellow) and then one Ea's default color in case if you prefer it better.

Installation:
Simply extract the sims 3 package file into your My documents/Electronic Arts/Mods/packages folder.

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.

Two of the tones (pale yellow and pink I believe) show as completely black (ala grim reaper) in my CAS. Same happens to the version posted on your blog. The other two ramps seem to work fine, but not those two.

Is that so? My apologies, I better test this tomorrow. It could be that something went wrong after I had hassle with so many texture files too many times. I will update the package the first thing in the morning.

I love these! I had been using ephemera's v2 skins for my super-pale simmies, but I adore the look and texture of these. Lovely!

Downloaded your update and I'm still having the same problem with the pink and yellow tones. I have no idea what is causing this. I tried removing every other mod, clearing caches, setting graphics on max, and still, what I assume are 'pink' and 'yellow' appear as pitch black.

I could make a default set but then of course it would have EA's own ramps which means it will not be this bright white

If you wish to have the female model you can download her from here:
http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_6ff92c9e0100tis1.html (it is Danzxncrd's Vesna but with different hair, contacts and skin-tone of course)

I see, I tried the file yesterday and it worked fine for me with all ramps and so does the updated version. So I am not quite sure now what could be wrong that it is not working for you.

Dos anyone else have problem like that with some of the ramps turning your sim black?

Wow these are gorgeous, reminds me of my BJD. I might finally be able to make a sim of one of my BJD's. Really beautiful texture. I wish they were default too, they are that pretty . Thank you for sharing them.

I had M. Calero apple skin as default and he had a separate file for the ramp i think, it was called lighter skintone ramp. You had to put both files in your mods folder. Anyway when i took them out, a couple of my sims had turned black, when i decided to use another default skin. Hope this helps.

Oh I see, well thank you for sharing this information.
And yes BJD style with this skin was something I went for but of course sim people are more realistic so I tried to add bit more realism to this.

Gorgeous skins. I mean breathtaking. Just curious but are they compatible with the Late Night muscle sliders? If so I will be giving them a real workout! LOL

Yes they should be dear, I have made them with Cmar's latest version of Skininator and I also made sure to align the bellybutton, clavicles of this skin texture on the same area where they are on the muscle slider's normal map so it would not look odd when the slider is on maximum. So go ahead with your sim's work out plan

Oh, these are so beautiful that I wouldn't mind it a bit. If it's not too much trouble, of course.

I would've preferred the nostrils to be a little dark and pronounced, a gorgeous skintone nonetheless!! ^^

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.
But the greatest of these is love.
