Cartoon-style alien eyes, for Maxis and Maxis-style matte skintones.

I don't care for the Maxis alien eyes, which look flat and dull to me. But I wanted non-glossy eyes for my little green friends. These look good with Lyran's skins, too.

I've included screenshots of sims with normal (human) sized eyes, and large (alien) eyes to illustrate how they will look.

Also available as contacts. Contacts will appear under Costume Makeup.

PLEASE RE-DOWNLOAD
it should be fixed now. so sorry!


ETA Jan. 20, 2007: DEFAULTS are now available! Thank you aukestrel for making them!

Thanks!

I greatly admire the beautiful alien eyes made by talented creators, but my aesthetic for my own sims leans to simple and cartoony. There's something about these that reminds me of Invader Zim And I think they look pretty effin' sweet on Pixel, if I do say so myself.

Woo! Thanks for this! I too like my sims cartoony-- I don't use any of the realistic skins or anything, lovely though they are. This will really help my alien kids whose eyes went weird as soon as they hit adolescent (something about alien eyes being invisible... I don't know). Anyway, thanks!

Thank you.

From what I understand, the alien teen eye problem is sometimes caused by default replacement skins. There's a thread on it here: http://www.moreawesomethanyou.com/s...hp?topic=5341.0

But my guy has had it happen to his alien-skinned teens, and he's never had replacement skins. So I don't know. But it's related somehow to the way Maxis made alien eyes.

Thanks I've been wanting to make an alien-only town without the hassle of spending over a month looking through a telescope.

Isn't that a girl's name?

I should've done this sooner, but thank you for this! The eyes look great on my aliens (I'll try and get a pic of PT, Stella, or the Singles girls to show off how they look with your eyes and the skin I'm using), so I figured it was time to get the contacts too. Thanks!

these are awesome! they look way better than the maxis eyes which look like no effort was put in them at all (simply normal eyes coloured black). these on the other hand have their own personality! thanks!

Fun Fact: The need to download Jack's Eyes, along with MTS's frustrating registration process, inspired my current username.

Also - these eyes are beautiful, thank you for allowing my human sims to finally be able to have cool black eyes.

Thanks. This will come in handy, since I plan on making my own technicians.
