UPDATE: It was brought to my attention that the dark brown default eye was not showing up as default. To fix this please download It will simply replace the bad file. Sorry!

I made defaults from Sparkle Eyes by lovebottle set. Posted in accordance with lovebottle’s policy of course. The Jealousy eyes V2 will be coming soon, but I’ve just been really busy this week and only had time to make one set.

As per usual, I have included 2 versions. Version 1 contains lighter green, grey and brown eyes for the default. Version 2 contains darker green, grey, and brown eyes. I also have included separate files for the hazel eye as the default green, and the really dark grey (lovebottle calls it black) as the default grey.

IMPORTANT: Feel free to pick and choose from the defaults in order to come up with your ideal combination. Whatever combination you chose, you MUST make sure you end up with only one each of light blue, blue, green, grey, and brown, for a total of 5 eyes. If this explanation confuses you, please just choose one set to download.

Full credit to lovebottle for these gorgeous textures! Please go here to view the non-default eyes, with many more color options.

I'm glad you guys are getting some use out of them, but make sure to thank lovebottle too!

enaadtherese62 - I am confused by your question.. I don't know what you're asking of me.. but just know you can only have one default set of eyes in your game at a time..

These are really nice, they look great in game - except for the brown, which for some reason doesn't work. The sims have the Maxis default brown eyes.

edit: i have the darker version, by the way, so i'm not sure if the lighter version's brown works.

i am so impressed with these eyes, so unlike most of the eyes i have seen that are overly sparkled and shiny and all look alike, these have a unique quality and the colors are so vibrant. The best i have downloaded for defaults!!

I've been looking for the perfect default replacements for hours! These are beautiful, thank you so much. Like another poster said, I like that you included a genuine dark brown color.
