Want your already-made Sims to use these eyes? Naarshada wrote a quick guide with all of their SimPE values in post 25. Thanks for all that hard work, Naarshada!

Now the defaults include the 50 natural colors! This means you can pick and choose which shade will be your Default Brown, Default Dark Blue, Default Light Blue, Default Green, and Default Gray...and you get it. Below, I've marked which sets have been enabled for which colors. Please consider this an apology gift for messing up the default replacements in the first place. And for those of you new to this download, consider it a gift. Just remember, you can only have one default replacement for each color, otherwise they will conflict. So choose only one Brown, one Gray, and so on.

3.13.15: Update! Wow, five months later and I finally realized I uploaded the wrong default replacements. It seems I had uploaded a set with beta textures previously. I have just fixed the archive so the correct default replacements are now available. I am so sorry for not realizing this sooner, especially to all those who have downloaded the old defaults. In less of a blunder, I uploaded a new archive which contains all 55 custom eyes. Inside the archive, you can choose between a folder that has all the eyes packaged separately OR you can install a single package that contains all 55 eyes.

10.20.14: Update! Haze and Enigma now have enough colors to be considered sets. It was kind of silly to have sets of two or three colors, so they've been updated to have a total of five shades each. These changes are reflected in the screenshots, marked by a shiny New! logo. The new colors have been given genetic values (Haze's set is all recessive and townie-enabled, Enigma is super recessive and not enabled for townies).

Hi-ho!

I'd like to present my Natural Elements eyes, as seen on the models for my Imperfection skins. It's been a joy sharing creations for Sims 2 with all of you, but as I haven't been playing much lately, this is my last completed project.

Anyway, enough of the sappy stuff. These eyes are fairly Maxis-match and blend in well with the game's graphics, in my opinion. The sclera does have some vein details, but the eyes are still animation-friendly, as you can see from the attached pic of Amy's bugged out eyes.

There are fifty eye colors in all, divided amongst seven sets. The swatches were taken in Create-A-Sim, but the models are all shown in-game. Also attached is a set of default replacements.

These eyes have been geneticized and townie-enabled (except for Enigma, which is genetic but not townie-enabled). Feel like changing their values? Check out Quinctia's tutorial of how to do so, which taught me all I know about genetics.

Gaia: Five shades of brown, all of which are dominant. These are also available as default replacements for Brown.



Cascade: Ten shades of blue, all of which are recessive. (Sorry Maxis, but why is Dark Blue more dominant than Light Blue? Why even have two shades of blue for defaults?) And on that note, these are all available as BOTH Dark Blue and Light Blue default replacements.



Flora: Ten shades of green, all of which are recessive. These are also available as default replacements for Green.



Haze: Not to be confused with hazel, these are three shades of gray, all of which are recessive. All of them are available as default replacements for Gray.



Collision: Ten darker mixed shades, all dominant. I also made these available as default replacements for Dark Blue, just in case you don't need two default blues.



Fusion: Ten lighter mixed shades, all recessive. These ones are available as default replacements for Light Blue.



Enigma: Special add-ons inspired by albino eyes found online. These two colors are very recessive, and townies will not spawn with them. Sorry, I've never met a real albino, but from what I've read on albinism, most cases don't have the infamous blood red eyes and usually have light or violet eyes, sometimes with pink flecks where the blood vessels are visible because the eyes are so translucent from lack of melanin. My apologies if I'm terribly uninformed. You can always think of it as these eyes are as realistic looking as the rest of the set.

None of this set is available as a default replacement, since I wasn't sure what it would replace.



Enjoy!

Recommended Downloads: These eyes work well with special eye effects, such as this one made by sugarandcaffeine or my own sets, found here and here.

TOU
Have fun with them. If you feel like using these in a project of your own, go ahead. I've uploaded the original PNGs to Dropbox, along with the PSD template that I used to recolor all these eyes, in case you feel like making your own shades. Have at it!

Thank you a lot for making these! I've been wanting some good albino eyes for a while now. I'm getting quite tired of giving them all light greys and your pink spotted eyes in the Enigma set are great for albino sims! I have never met an albino with violet or red eyes, but I only know two albinos so far. Thank you for your work!

Thanks for all the lovely comments

@anascarlett, you can download by clicking on the tab called Files. There, you can download any of the files listed, but you'll need a program like 7zip or WinRAR to extract it. For more information, you can check out the Instructions tab.

GUH, finally. *hoards* I love your particular detail to hues, you've got the leafy greens and bluish greens, and turquoise blues and colder blues. Also, huge bonus that darker colors are just as distinguishable as the lighter ones.

<3

Can I make a request? It's totally okay if you don't want to make it, the set is complete as it is. However, I have a favorite sim with very light blue-gray eyes, I guess you could say it's a mix of your Ripple and Ash colors. I was wondering if you could make something like that? The reason I'm asking is because I'm probably going to switch to this eye set completely and delete all other sets, and my sim needs that eye color! He's not the same without it.

Thank you again, heh :D

@spikesminx, do you have a picture of the original eye you could send to me or refer me to if it's in someone else's upload? I'm just trying to picture whether it's more gray on the outer rim or more blue there. Basically, I'm trying to imagine which parts of the iris are blue and which parts are gray. Would it be something like a lighter Cloudy Day?

Wow, that was fast! I don't exactly have a picture right now, but what I meant is light gray on the outer rim, blue stuff towards the middle of the eyes, resulting in eyes that look kind of like ice. A frosty, bluish gray. The blue doesn't have to be so prominent, but the gray eye looks bluish rather than whitish, if you know what I mean.

I'll edit my comment if I can find a picture Thanks for listening, you don't have to make it, of course

I found a pic!

Of course this one might be just wayyy too light, and you don't have to make it that light, I'm showing you this one to give you an idea about the inner blue/outer light gray thing

Thanks for the pic and for explaining the color combo. Eyes are very easy to recolor, so I don't mind adding in some extra colors to this set if people have specific suggestions. Your request is very clear and I appreciate that.

I'll be on my laptop with my creative stuffs on it tonight, so I'll see what I can do then.

Glad it was the right shade! When making it, I realized how Haze could use another light shade of gray, so it is responsible for Blizzard as well. :D
