Lunararc's "Lunar Eyes" made Default

When I first saw Lunararc's Lunar Eyes, I couldn't get over how gorgeous they were, and I instantly wanted a Default Replacement version. Sadly, Lunararc said he wouldn't make them into defaults so I set about to do them myself. I received Lunararc's permission to upload them, shortly thereafter and decided to share them with you! (Thanks so much Lunararc!)

As you can see, it took a lot of editing in order to get them to look decent as default replacements, but I think I captured the spirit of his eyes pretty well. After all, they were made using his textures!

DESCRIPTION
  • These are DEFAULT REPLACEMENTS, meaning they replace the default EA eyes in game and all your sims (player made and NPC alike) will be sporting these eyes.
  • Base Game Compatible
  • These eyes were made using Lunararc's Lunar Eyes as a base (with his permission of course). I tried to make them look as close to the original's as possible but still work as default replacements
  • They look best with the HQ mod installed. Pictures are provided to illustrate this.
  • Unfortunately, they don't look good when the color slider is at maximum or minimum brightness. Pictures are provided to illustrate this.
  • There are two versions. One with spotlights and one without. You can only have ONE installed.









CREDITS
**Huge thanks to Lunararc for letting me upload them, and for suggesting I add an option for a "no-spotlight" version! Also to Aikea-Guinea who's tutorial I used!**

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 actually think the eyes look really nifty at full brightness - good for non-humans!

I love these eyes and I am very glad you made them defaults, thanks so much! But they are acting a bit weird in my game. When I use them, the sims skin color is leaking into the whites of the eyes. I tried to make a skin with a very dark skin color, and the whites of her eyes became very dark as well. I tried again with a blue and green skin tone, same thing, the edge of the whites of the eyes become the same color.

I've been using a different default eye up to this point and it does not have this issue, nor does the default EA eye.


Edit: Okay, I see that you have to download a separate eye whites package to make them look right, I grabbed the aikea-guinea one. You might want to add a line about that to the description of the mod, as these eyes wont look right without it! They look great and correct with it though.

For some reason the spotlights are black instead of white in my game. It's not that big a deal for me, I mean during gameplay you cane barely tell, but I though I'd let you know.

For some reason the spotlights are black for my sims. Is there anything I need to download and install to make them white?
