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.
Updated for the 26.03 patch. I'm leaving the old files for people who didn't update the game.

9 Skintones made for dark elves and other supernatural creatures.
Added 6 more skintones

They will not add details to any base game or custom skins and will not override any details.
All in seperate packages.

They have 2 different versions:
-Allowed for random sims (game will create new sims (neighbors) with this skintones )
-Not Allowed for random sims (game will not create new sims with this skintones, only the sims you created with this skintones will use them)

All skintones can be used together. (If you use allowed for random and not allowed for random versions together for the same skintone, one will override the other.)

Can be downloaded in 5 sets:
-Brightests
-Brights
-Lights
-Midtones
-Darks

Lights


Midtones


Darks


Brights


Brightests


Custom Content Used:
Experimental Elf Ears are by me @ my tumblr . They have morph problems so read the instructions if you want to use them.
Lot used for in-game screenshots: Swimming Bath Dreamland from HytroxDesign (community uploads)

Sorry custom hair doesn't work for you. If they are custom meshes and cause a crash, you can try fixing them with this tool here . Read it's instructions.
If they are only recolors, i have no idea.
These are not things like custom meshes that may cause lags etc, when they are high poly. Just recolors. I hope they will work for you.

That may take a while since i'm a little busy these days. You may want to use this mod here if you have lighting problem. If you still have a lighting problem with this mod, PM me and i'll make and upload lighter ones too.

I'll admit it. I'm a huge fan of the R. A. Salvatore novels, so I've been wanting to make either a Drizzt or a Jarlaxle sim. This is perfect for them! Thank you so much.

#22 Old 22nd Dec 2014 at 12:04 AM
These are fantastic and huge thanks for making them! Only possible requests:

1. It'd be awesome to have sets based on color rather than darkness. I wanted the greys in light/mid/dark rather than color variation, for example, it felt more natural to me that they'd have a similar hue but different shades?

2. Possible bug, unsure if it can be helped or not: two sims with these skintones just produced awkward caucasian infants. They switched to proper skintone when they aged up to children though! Not a huge deal, but I laughed my head off and figured I'd mention it. :D

Thanks again!
