Here I go again with more love for the occults

EDIT 02.08.19 It has been brought to my attention that in some cases the packages didn't work. This issue is now fixed (thanks falcophoenix!), please redownload if you experience problems. Also, removed from vampires (oopsie)

Since I'm deeply in love with the glow and black sclera in vampire eyes, I decided that mermaids need them too!

And so I took the default Maxis eyes (all except the black shark eyes) and added to them glow, black sclera, and a combination of both.


This mod adds new eyes - swatches of the default Maxis mermaid eyes. They are available from Teen to Elder (since Children don't have the mermaid form). You can find them in the mermaid form in 'Eyes' category.

Check out the gallery for more CAS and ingame pics.

The three packages contain:
1) Merkaba's_GlowingMermaidEyes - default, white sclera eyes with glow;
2) Merkaba's_GlowingMermaidEyes_BlackSclera - default eyes with added black sclera AND glow;
3) Merkaba's_MermaidEyes_BlackSclera - default eyes with ONLY black sclera.

Island Living is required.

PS. Since mermaids can use vampire eyes, check out my mods that add more vampire eye colors (both with white and black sclera): CLICK and CLICK

Man, I hadn't realized why the mermaid eyes felt so dull until these. Thank you!!
EDIT: I placed the glowing black sclera version in my game. Your other vampire eyes are the only other occult override I have.All CC and scripts enabled. Yet the changes as pictured do not appear in my game, just the same dull default eyes. I deleted and re-added the mod twice to be sure. Would you be willing to look into this?

Hm this is strange. I also only use my vamp eyes and everything is fine. Maybe try removing the "localthumbcache.package" from your Documents/EA/TheSims4 folder. Other than this I'm not sure what might be wrong

Nah, I don't think thumbnails have to do with it. But I did that anyway, and indeed there was no difference. It's the eyes themselves that have no change to them, despite using the black sclera with glowing irises. In fact, I just tested all three versions of the mod, separately, one at a time in my game. I have your other vampire eyes and I adore them. I have cc alien eyes and one non-occult default override. They all work on their own in my game together. But for some reason, only your new mermaid eyes do not show at all on the sim when the mod is in mod folder and trying the eyes on in CAS. Still default and not-glowing and not-black. I really think you need to check your mod's flags to see if there's anything you forgot to enable.

Did you try testing them separately, with no other CC eyes? Everything looks fine on my end (+ they went through moderation and were flagged as working). I would really like to solve this, in case others have the same problem.

I did test them separately, and just now I tested them individually again after removing absolutely all of my CC eyes. Still the same result, not a single one of your mermaid eyes working ingame. And I could tell the difference in your screenshots alone, there was no glow and no black whatsoever in mine. This is very distressing as I genuinely love your mod and really want to have it in my game, and your vampire eyes all still work perfectly.

I really love those eyes, I already use your Vampire eyes too. I don't know if this is possible but I have a small request because the thumbnail for the mermaid eyes that came with IL show the eyecolor and form instead of just the color, would it be possible to do the same with your eyes?

I tried to add custom thumbnails to my eyes but I can't in any way get them to work

Thank you so much. I'm ecstatic you got these fixed. Hopefully if it was an issue with other people it's been nipped in the bud.
