This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
First things first: I claim no rights to Louis' bodyskin, which I used to create these skintones. But she allows other creators to use it and alter it - and I can not express how thankful I am for that policy. So, all credit for that goes to her:

My first thread, in which I had only uploade the "tan" version (which is the original) has just been approved, but on a board I am a member of, I was already asked for recolors. So I made some ^_^ I have never done this before, so please bear with me. Now, let's take a look, shall we?

I always wanted to make a skintone expecially for Asian looking sims, so I searched for inspiration and pics on the internet and went havoc in bodyshop. Here's the result:

There are 5 recolors - or better 4, since the "tan" version is the original.


For the other pics, please check the attachments ^_^

Since this is my first skintone uploaded on a site like MTS2, I would love to know what you think!

Terms of use: Anything goes ^_^ You can use custom content by me all you want, as long as you give credit if you use it in an upload. Thanks! ^_~
(And of corse, no upload to pay-sites. But we all know that, don't we?)

Happy simming!


These skintones are now available as DEFAULTS on my blog/website, which is here:

I wanted to say that these have become my favorite skintones to use in my game. They are lovely and give your sims a realistic nose. Thanks.
