Eyeliner for cats is what first prompted me to learn how to make regional markings. Although one of the forehead stripe markings has this, I wanted some without the stripes. Thus I embarked on learning and made eyeliner. However, in a shuffle of moving stuff around and dealing with path updates, I lost my original project.

However, I have revived it! Brought to you by popular demand, I present to you not one, not two, but three different eyeline looks!

Have a gander!



Type A and B are only one channel, however, type C, as you can see from the screenshot, has two recolourable channels. One thin line along the contours of the eye that dips down at the inner corners, and the larger, outer portion.

Feel free to use these however you please so long as you don't use it to make money in any way. That would make me grumpy. You won't like me when I'm grumpy.

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.

I put markings like this on a cat by using the game's original markings and... it was a pure pain to get them in place and it certainly didn't look as good as these
Thank you!

Purty! This is a fairly common marking for cats; odd EA didn't provide it in this form. As usual, modders take up the slack!
