I got bored of blue vampires and decided to make vampire that looks like regular person. I replaced blue overlay skin with light grey one so that vampire Sim will be little bit paler than normal one but all makeup will now of course look better when not covered with blue color..

Also removed red eyes, normal eye color will remain now even if sim becomes vampire.

I might be able to make some different vampireskins too if requested, meaning simple stuff like red eyes included, default blue skin without red eyes, etc.

VampirePale(No)RedEye.zip
I made more paler skin with and without default red eyes. Below you can see comparison picture..

VampireDefaultNoRedEye.zip
Default blue shaded vampire skin without red eyes.

VampireInvisibleSkn.zip
This is completely invisible skin, no red eyes no shading in skin.. Your vampire will keep original skin completely.

Let me know if there are any problems...

Thank you so much, I've been looking for a normal vampire skintone.

Fangs and all other vampire stuff are still there.. All I did was change skin color and delete red eyes.

And forgot to mention that in those screenshots you can see paleness of vampire compared to normal skin color.

I think that fangs are quite visible in that second screenshot...

So this will affect all the vampires in your game, right? Like a default global thing? Awesome. Thank you!!

If you're taking requests, I'd love this new skin tone with bright green glowey eyes instead of red or normal.

Thank you. I have a sim that is well on the way of becomming a vamp but I didn't want to lose his unusual eye color in the process.

For a species that claims to be intellectually superior to all other life forms, humans do some stupid things.

Great idea! I have one request. Would you mind making the vamp paler and adding back the red eyes? I think that'd be awesome and I'd be forever in debt to you.

How about the original Vampire skin with realistic adult anatomy and no red eyes for both genders??? That would be perfect!

i think somethings mixed up cause afbodyvampire-pale_txtr doesnt get mapped to adult females, one of the male named ones does apparently.., at least thats what iam getting when editing the files.

I found all overlay graphics from EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Nightlife\TSData\Res\3D folder. In Sims07.package-Sims13.package.. Those graphics seemed to be spread between couple packages.

wintermuteai1.. I looked at your package too, but doesnt it completely replace original skins since it doesnt have any opacity? I like to see original skin too..

I'll have to see what I can do about more paleness, darker skin tones just get too pale then if I try to get lighter skin tones to look pale.

And I really havent done much anything like this before, so might be that I've misplaced some graphics, but doesnt probably matter in this case since cant see patterns..

ill try extracting the overlays and makeing my own package and see if it works then, if not ill have to figure out which file the game is really mapping to it, its eather elder male or teen male.
__________

so, apparently, maxis/ea goofed up and mapped embodyvampire-pale_txtr is mapped to both elder male, and adult female.... i went in and made my own overwrites to the overlays for each gender/valid vampire age and wrote the age/gender code on the backs of them, went in game, tryed each one, and EM was on adult female as well as elder male :S

So does this change the teens as well? i know some people have tried this but ended up with teen females with the default maxis colored faces ...i tried myself ..never did find the files for the TF faces....

But i'd like a package that gave just a hint of red to the normal eyes. ...and *cough* anatomicly correct*cough* skin

I suppose it deppends on the skin you use to make the sim in first place. If it is anatomicaly correct, then the vampire will aslo have anatomycaly correct skin. It has been happening to me...

Really cool! Thank you for this. No more Vampires with red eyes.
But I have a question: In your package is no file for female teen vampire-face-skin. Is it not necessary?

And if possible, I'd like to see my vampires a bit paler.
