Replacement Eyes for Sims 4

by Gothelittle Posted 6th Sep 2014 at 10:18 PM - Updated 6th Sep 2014 at 3:24 AM by Gothelittle : Changing/verifying for Sims 4 rather than CAS Demo
36 Comments / replies (Who?) - 7 Feedback Posts, 16 Thanks Posts
I have a fascination with eye color, especially the beautiful variety of complex colors found in sectoral heterchromia, or "hazel" eyes. When I first started playing with the CAS Demo, I was disappointed by the eye colors even more than the eye detail. There were too many colors that were too similar to each other, and I found it boring.

I included solid-color brown, dark brown, blue, green, and grey eyes, and spent the rest of the options playing with variations on hazel eyes, in hopes of giving myself more options. I did my best to use colors that made sense when paired with the swatch colors, and tested the package to ensure that each swatch matched its proper eye color. As soon as I got my copy of Sims 4, I verified that the package works just as well with the game as with the demo.

This *is* a FULL REPLACEMENT of CAS eye colors.

Note: To install Sims 4 content, you merely need to place the package file (unzipped) into your Mods folder. No "package" subfolder necessary.

Why a full replacement rather than just adding your new ones? You have far more than the default set, so it's not a limitation of requiring overrides, right?

I felt the same way about the eyes in the CAS demo. Your replacements are what I expected Maxis to produce in the first place! :D

Amazing eyes! Thank you! The original EA ones are so bland, I'm definitley going to be using this

UPDATE: I tried using the mod but it crashed my game as soon as I loaded my household.

The instructions say TS2, not TS4. But then again, you might not be able to fix it, since they might not have the instructions set up on their site yet...

But I love these. Now I make more accurate Sims with better eyes

I made this when the CAS demo first came out, and the only thing they knew how to do was to replace. I don't know if the modding community has cracked the ability to add swatches/recolors to genetics yet.

When they do, I will be churning out more eye sets!

It's my first upload ever. I told MTS to just put the 'default instructions' up. I don't know why they put up 'default instructions' for Sims 2.

Sims 4 has a Mods folder, and you just stick it right in the folder. No Packages subfolder. There's a cfg file, but I think it came with the game. I don't remember putting it there. So I just left it alone.

Hope that helps, for everyone asking about instructions!

Nice to see these are back. Do you know if you'll be adding more colours? (red comes to mind, since that colour was there to make albino sims possible)

Once I or someone else figures out how to *add* eye options rather than just replacing them, I have every intention of putting out a bunch of eyes with a wide variety of hues and mixtures. Albino is a good idea, and I will certainly put it on my list!

These were taken down for a moment because CAS Demo-made packages are intermittently causing game crashes, and a couple of people had problems. I reapplied the files through the Sims 4 system and retested, so it should be good now.
