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.
I decided to recolor one of SimCribbling's skins because she didn't have a darker skintone for download. This skintone is for all aged sims and all of the sims shown have no makeup or eyebrows, everything is part of the face itself. Also, the belly ring on the females and chain on the males are part of the skintone. Enjoy!

Note: Please do not redistribute this skin on any pay website, or the sims exchange. If it's put on any free site or forum please give both SimCribbling and me credit. Thank you!

Thanks for this download. It's almost as if you read my mind! I've always wanted this skin tone in a darker complexion. Thanks!

I am so glad you put these up. I had contacted 'Louis' and asked if she'd be making anymore skintones in a darker shade. And she told me you would. Everytime I tried to recolor the skintones either all the female faces were missing or the male faces were missing... Anyway thanks for putting these up.

I cannot seems to download the original skintones. The downloads when half way and suddently it says it finish and the file is corrupt. Anyone knows what happens?

I really want the complete set, plus with this amazing recolor .

* I just read that your working on default replacement. I love that idea. I guess I'll wait that one instead :D.

I had tried it all afternoon with 2 web browsers and a dondload manager. Still the same.

Same happens to me all the time I'm trying to download something from louis's site. I found you can resume transfer downloading with Opera browser so you don't have to download all the file again when the download stops for no reason.. Other programs never gave me that option for those files so downloading from SimCribbling was real pain.

Actually, I already had a dark recolor of this skin (by SilkStockings), however I like this version, too. Thanks very much!

I just tested downloading the file myself and it works, just try it again at a different time. Sometimes I have trouble downloading from this site too.

When I run into this type of problem, I sometimes have to run Disk Cleanup first because dowloads and webpages are saved in temp folders on your 'puter.

Good luck.

Hey emino, you can try downloading Louis's skins on the exchange. For some reason, I've encountered a problem myself with downloading things from her site from time to time.

In case anyone wants to know On Simcribbling, Louis added 6 new skintones. 2 of which are brown. I'm not sure if the lighter ones are the same or not. I couldn't see the difference, but I'll have to check in the game. The skintones were put on the site yesterday.
