This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.

Default Thanks So Much!!!
I've been waiting for the new types of frames for 4ev! Thanks so much! But I have a mega request. Can you make the sunglasses Paris Hilton wears all the time. I attached a picture. I know they'd look awesome in the game and you're the one I want to do it! :howdy:

Not really, no. The glasses and shades I've done here are, in essence, just recolors of the maxis meshes. I've only dabbled in mesh-modding for TS2 and so far haven't gotten anything to work. :read:
What I CAN do is make a couple versions that look similar to P.H.'s glasses. But nothing, you know... exact. :shrug:

7/6/5 UPDATE: 2 versions are now availible for download!

If you're going to look back on something and laugh, you might as well laugh about it now.

He he, I was waiting for someone to ask about that. Adding specific detail like that may take some time, since the form of the glasses isn't mapped out in any of the textures. Meaning that all the glassses up until now, both mine and maxis have essentially been solid colors.

I'll see what I can do.
Ok, so I saw what I could do and adding that minuteness of detail is currently beyond me, in this respect. I do apologize but I will not be adding any little sparkly dots to the glasses.. which is too bad cuz I was all excited there for a bit. ::sigh:: :shrug:

I request that someone make the male glasses usable in females. The round, big ones of course.
