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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
UPDATE 15.07.2012:
I added C face type for all ages & both genders. This type does not have the strong white "powder" look and has minor other edits so now the face skin will blend naturally with the rest of the body. The C face type can be seen on the images that have dark haired sim models.

I was not going to upload anything for a long while due the workload I have for my job, but sims is quite addicting. So I decided to at least make a better version of this skin as it has been in my to-do list for a long time already and thus after my break, I would not have any skins to make for sims 3 ever again. For some this skin might be familiar and for others a new thing so to put it simply, the idea of this skin is to make the sim brownish and glossy.

I wanted to make such a skin because I was intrigued by the idea of it and I wanted this kind of skin to have a lot of details and especially to have it working for all ages and both genders. But the previous version of mine, after looking at the body texture recently, has a terrible shine, simply drastic collarbones and an overly orange tint so now I have improved the body which is why I call this skin version 2.0. I added a new detail for the body, shaded it a bit differently and softened the tone, changed the shine to a glossy type and fixed bothersome seam areas. I also included two face types. "A" is the exact same face from the previous version. "B" type is a new, softer face. Well then, I mainly intended to share this among my friends but I thought that perhaps there were others who want to give this a try, to have some new variety for your game

Notes:
  • There are fully 8 texture files. Own body and two face types for toddler and Child which are the same for both genders. Female body and two face types which are the same for teen to elder. Male body and two face types which are the same for teen to elder.
  • This skin is non-default, (Will not replace any skins) wouldn’t want every sim in town running around glossy brown. So there is not going to be a default replacement of this skin type, please understand.
  • There is only one tone ramp so you can adjust the skin color from light brown to darker.

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 skins are really nice and glossy! Thanks. BTW, do they have any pubic hair or anatomical details?

No, these are 100% barbie. The one to be uploaded to my blog has anatomical details (for example if you have downloaded the male bottom replacement from sexy sims 2 the skin in the blog is compatible with it) But these are not

Can you post an image of the skins side by side the default skins? So we can see how much they change the facial structure?

Your skins are beautiful as always Mallow. But patch 1.32 has broken my skin tone ramp so I can't download, which is pissing me off majorly....So hopefully EA squares this away, I already have your doll white skins, so I know these are just as lovely!!!

I really wish to keep this skin only as non-default because the base color is too different therefore it looks strange with default tone ramps. I am sorry. Also, are you sure you cannot use muscle slider because this skin is made with the latest skininator program which able muscle slider


Thank you everyone for your kind words, it really makes me glad

Oh my gosh I think I'm going to love these!! I downloaded and will try out in my game shortly, I'm always on the lookout for better skins that accent darker skin tones! I make and upload primarily ethnic sims so I hope this is the skin to beat all others!!
