Hi everyone

This is a set of new skintones from me. Some resemble a few of my earlier, but they're new, much improved versions: I've edited some little deficiencies in their design (moved nipples, fixed edges etc) and I like the new versions a lot more. 'Sweet Fall' is very close to my old 'Fresh Summer', but a bit more freckled and slightly darker. I've softened some of the details – like the shading around the eyes and mouth, that made the old skins look a little aged in some lights.

What you see here in the pictures are the 'normal' versions of the skintones... the 'cut' tone is more defined, the soft one less. The skins are available for all ages, but they are not replacement skins. There is no makeup used in these pictures. The eyebrows and eyes are not included this time, but you can find them with my earlier skins. I'll do a pack with eyes only later on.

I hope I got this right. This is the first time I've tried to supply a .package file instead of the regular, difficult-to-install kind of file. As far as I can tell, only the skintones should be in the files. If this is not the case, please tell me so that I can adjust this. These SHOULD be usable regardless of what EPs you have.

The skintones are as follows,

Alabaster –

A creamy pale skintone.

Rich Earth –

A rich, earthy skintone with a light golden touch.

Porcelain Doll –

A desaturated skintone with blushed cheeks and details.

The Fae –

An extremely pale, bluish skin

Blue Midnight –

A very dark, bluish tone.

Rich Gold –

Deep golden skintone.

Sweet Fall –

A warm, freckled skintone with a golden touch.

Dusk –

A deep, dusky kind of brown – less golden than 'rich earth'.

You are allowed to include these skins with your Sims pretty much anywhere – as long as it is not a donation or pay site and you take care to link back here Enjoy!

I don't remember if it is this one, but I know some of her skins are packaged as "Sims2Pack" files, so check and see if that is the case. If that IS, then you must "run" them as installation files and they should install fine. If anything does go wrong with that (as it did for me) then use Sims2Pack Clean Installer found here on Mod the Sims 2, or just go ahead and cut to the chase, use Clean Installer anyway, and that should make it work for you

Oh, my GOD. These are so beautiful. I actually hadn't logged in here for months, but then yesterday I felt the need to create a fae-type Sim, and I didn't have quite the right skintone for her. I was going to try making a recolor myself, but then I thought, "hey, maybe someone on MTS2 has done this already." And lo and behold, you have, and it's exactly what I'd pictured -- in fact, it's better than what I pictured.

Thank you so much for these beautiful skins. All of your skins are fantastic, and I'm planning to run off now and delete every other skin on my system, because they all look like crap next to yours.

God, am I a drooling fangirl or what? But seriously, these are amazing. So lovely. Most user-created skins are too dark and/or oversaturated, but yours look amazingly real.

Right. Stop drooling now. I can do that. Would you believe, I'm almost 40? I'm pretty sure it's not normal to get this excited over Sims skins.

But my fae is going to be so beautiful now!

God, I'm such a dork.

Dang it! I just deleted like a dozen skins to save space!!!! Now I see these!! Well, I suppose since I deleted a dozen... it wouldn't hurt to dl four or five of these... maybe six... They are of obvious quality after all that I've been searching for and could maybe even delete a few of the others I saved that were nowhere near this good...but DARN IT - Don't you go making more of these!!!! Like a blue tone...or a peaches and cream ....

btw Melgarv.. - not sure, but I'm guessing that Sweet Fall hair is from Rosesims who makes really superior hair that I'm considering paying for....she has free ones too.

Absolutely beautiful. They look so ethereal and unreal. I got so excited when I saw these. I'm especially fond of Sweet Fall and consequently like many here I'm curious to know where you got the hair. Again thank you so much.

Oh my goodness. Wonderful skintones! Unfortunately, my graphics card is going out so they look sort of funky right now. I can't wait to use them next week when I get my new graphics card.

I was wondering if you could possibly upload your model, Sweet Fall. She's gorgeous!
