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.
this new skin would be made as non default only, since it is more of a prototype of a concept

sometime a custom skin only have a light texture that blends into EA/default skin when the color ramp is dragged to the right,
from that thought, I tried to make a 2 in one skin that would blend to gether into more unique look for different sims while using a same skin

I make a hairy skin on a freckled body and face and set it to light,
then I reduce the hair on some part, change the belly button, nipple, and moles and set it as dark, then I tried in game to play around with the color slider.

so I decide to publish it, to get input, and ideas to develop it further.

Thanks to mahamudo for the update, this skin is now fully compatible with this custom normal map, please check this out, it will add pleasant details to the skin:

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'm glad you are active!!! Which means that we would get great skins for playing Supernatural EP (like your wonderful TS2 set!) I'm wishlisting on you, Navetsea!! As for this skin, you are right, freckles don't look good on darker tones, it's cool!! But what else could we expect from the greatest of the greats!! XD TS2 creator over TS3 creator any day!! ^^

Your skins are my favorite.

Like Jasumi said, I think your body skins are simply the best ones available for TS3. The level of detail is astounding - and I like the idea of the skin changing details as you move along the color ramp.

I'm a big fan of your skin! In Skyrim too, I wonder why in The Sims 3, we can't have a high detailed skin like those in Skyrim? Beside of skin texture, do you have any future plan to edit The Sims 3 bump mapping skin, like you did in Skyrim?

I also want to suggest to separate the body hair from the body skin, and put it to CAS body hair section. What do you think? You can put as many variety as possible, from the thin to extreme thick.

Navetsea is back!! I see you didn't lose your touch at all, in fact you're still as impressive as your Sims 2 days :D
Can't to try this amazing skintone, and definitely looking forward your futur masterpieces!!
Hopefully you work on fighting games characters again, a conversion of your Orochi Leona and Angel from KoF would be EPIC :D

Thank you to all of the nice comments I appreciate them deeply, now answering some questions
- yes I can't wait to try making supernatural textures, since I love horror genre
- bump mapping in TS3 is somewhat low resolution or something, or maybe their rendering is much lower than skyrim, I tried to make a rough texture once and it turn patchy instead, the same case with bodyhair, it will appear very nice in CAS, but turn ugly in game rendering especially around the edges, it always turn rough and pixelated can't blend properly with overlaid skin underneath, so far TummyZa has the best body hair layer I know of although it is kinda thick, but to make it thinner is just very difficult somehow due to game's rendering .
- with TS3 morphable body fitness and jonha+delphy sliders to sculp the body even more, it would make cool and sexy looking fighting game characters.

The same way you use any non-default skintone.

@Navetsea
I saw someone posted a trick to increase sims texture in game render in MTS forum, by modify the GraphicsRules.sgr, but I forget the link. I tried to search using Google, but just found this link:

aWT's The Sims 3 HQ Modification. It modify GraphicsRules.sgr, to increase the sims texture size to 2k x 2k, similar to those in Skyrim in high quality.
http://awtmk.blogspot.com/2011/03/ts3-hqmod.html

For the bump mapping, Abnormal SIM Simulation Center have it. It add bump mapping for nipple and genital.
http://mahamudosim3x18.blogspot.com...66d3b0e0bb271ac

May you should modify a little above EA default layer, especially the stomach muscle and fat around the body, to match with your skin. It may be will look cool. EA default female skin has something wrong at lower part of stomach bump mapping.


I have a special request. Your skin is quite dark at the brightest level. I want to make sims as white as possible like in reality. May be you should increase the brightness skintone slider at the left side. What do you think?


Btw, I downloaded your new skin in SXS2. But it seems you forget to upload the Wild version.

thanks Celebriton for the input
actually I have tried #aWT's S3HQ, but I'm afraid at this point it is not mainstream yet, it would be difficult to be dependent of it and asking people that new to the game to get it.

I also use that bump mapping from Abnormal Sim, but since I shifted the male nipple to the center a little so I could make the side of the pecs more angular, I only use the "Buhudain_amBody-P_Only_Map1+2-Normal-DR"

Thanks for inform me that my skin at SXS passed, I didn't know that yet, somehow my hairy skin when packed in .rar (sxs2 is still using old uploading format and doesn't accept .7z) is a little bigger than 10mb which is the maximum file size there.
but you can get it from my other posts (ISA, GoS, BAS sites)

I'll play around with the ramp, maybe I should turn the beginning into pale bluish so when overlaid with pinkish texture it would turn grey.

Dear Navetsea,
A new male nipple normal map compatible to your revised skin has been made. You may take a look of it.

no, body hair is overlay, and generally doesn't look right in game somehow due to ingame rendering.
