This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

So do you want some aliens skins that really look like they are from another world? I think I have got somethings that you may like. I created three different alien species that should work nice in any Sci-fi story, movie or whatever else you would like. I used parts of both teru_k and Ren's bases, so I really owe them a great (I stress great) deal of the credit so thank you guys! Enjoy everybody!


(UPDATE) Rules:
Use as you would like! Please just keep credit and link back. Do not upload to exchange or pay sites.
Additional Information:
~This skin works for all genders and ages. This includes babies.
~Non default, defaults of this skin are currently not available from me however I know some creators have defaults of these around the web.

Additional Credits:
teru_k and Ren for their great skin tones that I used in creating these.

Teru_k's [Ephemera] SimpleSkin Soft Edition
Ren's Self-MakeUp #7 Skintones

Plus I can't forget decorgal21572 for the great custom modeling poses!

I believe it was nominated and seconded for defaults... Shall we take a vote? *chanting, "Default, default, default"*

One dark day in the middle of the night, two dead boys got up to fight.
Back to back they faced each other, drew their swords and shot each other

The defaults were made to work with Bloom's sexy feet default replacements.

Thanks Jwilson5

Sooooo I tried that link but it didn't work. Can I find these as default replacements anywhere else?

Default Willing to Share?

Thank you!

Edit: Nevermind! I figured out what I was doing wrong once I read the tutorial from Step one again! I managed to make the Planet Peach into the default and it looks great! These textures are really of an amazing quality. Thank you so much!

Soooo you willing to share your default? I haven't found them anywhere....

That link is SEMI right! You have to change the ".net" to ".org" for it to work, or better yet... this is the correct link! :D

Good luck!

Again, GREAT JOB! Astiees!!!! And I did make my multi PT default and I LOVE IT!!!! I never know what alien variety I will get until my simmies deliver! But whichever one, they are just AWESOME!!!!!
