Skin Details version, also now for children and toddlers! (also found in skin details)


Hello! I've been gone for a long time, but I wanted to share these with you guys here.
I've made heterochromia eyes (using Toksik's mesh , included with permission), of my Dreamy eyes, that you can find here . You'll need these if you want to have both eyes with matching textures!
  • Toddler-Elder
  • M & F
  • Human
  • In the Rings category
  • All Maxis Match Colours

There are two versions to choose from, please see the images I've uploaded to see the difference
Only one version can be installed at a time, or they'll get mixed up and you may end up with a left file V1 and right file V2, instead of two of each.

Important Compatibility Note: The skin detail versions still use the ring texture space, and therefore can't be used with rings.
Also, if you have never used a heterochromia eye mesh before, they're made to sit over the top of one eye at a time. Meaning you will need your base eyes (defaults, non-defaults) to be the same set/texture. This is why I've linked the original set It also means that if you try to use both the left eye mesh and the right eye mesh at the same time, the texture will be the same and the colour will change for both of them simultaneously instead of giving the desired effect. Use only one side!

I hope you like them, if there's anything that doesn't make sense or anything goes wrong please let me know, also let me know what you think and if you have any questions feel free to ask!
If you use these in any videos or pictures please tag me or send me a link, I love seeing your sims

TOU
  • Please don't re-upload anywhere as your own
  • No recolours of the texture (The mesh isn't mine though so if you'd like to make your own go to Toksik's download, linked above)

This is a multi-part download:


Only download V1 or V2, within each version you can pick whichever options you like. Having both versions at once makes them conflict with each other. You can have Left Eye and Right Eye installed at the same time, but they won't work properly if they're both selected. To get the heterochromia effect you'll need to only use one side, and use my non-default, contact or default replacement versions of the eyes underneath to have matching textures I hope this makes sense!

they're pretty and cool, but can't download. it's the dreamy eyes that i can't do. no idea why, but can only guess tumblr had something to do with it. it would be cool if you can upload the eyes on here (but i know nothing as i just joined up). good job on the eyes i guess.

I feel dumb but what is the difference between v1 and v2 in the pics?

These really are beautiful but the one issue I have is that they keep getting spawned on townies so half of my city has it! Is there any way to change that without removing them from my game?

Using these along with the original eyes they are made to match I've been loving them but I'm having a bit of a problem. The genetic eyes and the heterochromic eyes seem to have a different specular map which causes them to react differently under dull or directional lighting. The natural eye glowing with mostly shine, and the heterochromic one dull and extremely dark. I can PM you screenshots if you care to see what's going on.

Yep! If you have Sims4Studio you can open my file in there and disable "Allow for random". However I should do this myself anyway it just means updating the file

Don't worry it is quite subtle V1 has less white shine than V2.

I've sent you a PM with several screenshots of the issue under both spotlights and in dark rooms. They work completely fine though under bright lights, or if a spotlight is shining directly on his face. I'm not sure if it's an issue with the Dreamy eyes being too shiny, or the heterochromia eye being not shiny enough, but the disparity is very distracting. Especially considering the item looks so good when it works right.

Thank you I'll fix it! All of my recent eyes have a blank specular so they don't have shine, my Dreamy eyes are reasonably old compared to them so I hadn't done it for those but I'll fix it :D

How do you use them for toddlers? They can't wear rings so where do you find them?

Hi! I recently downloaded the mod (even the Toksik one) and I'm having a problem where no matter which eye (left of right) it just goes blue! Over the whole lid. Am I doing something wrong or did I miss something? I have a picture if needed.

Thanks!
