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.
I have made defaults of HystericalParoxysm’s fabulous new Idolatry of Flesh Redux skintones.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: You must choose ONE skintone from each of the 4 shades. One from S1, one from S2, one from S3, and one from S4.

S1 - Delight, Blush
S2 - Afterglow, Subtlety
S3 - Innuendo
S4 - Adoration, Intuition

hair by Raon Sims, Nouk & ChihoSan
eyebrows by Rensim & alkaloid
eyes by Helaene (defaults by me)

Full credit to HystericalParoxysm for these gorgeous skins! Please go here to view the non-default skins.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Thanks so much, these are great. I'm still hoping for the AC version, but in the meantime, these will be lovely.

Thank you! I love the new idolatary of flesh, but all my sims have Maxis Skintones, so I can re-default them if I can get tired of them. And now I can have HP's new Idolatary defaults! :-D

Thank you, thank you! I was waiting for these to appear, as I wanted to try something a bit less shiny than Enayla's for defaults. However, when I checked them out in CAS, I found a URL written across the bellies of my female sims (Demused dot something, I think).

These were the PJs they were wearing (teen to adult conversion):

I love the skins to bits, but obv. can't use them with this big ugly tattoo showing up, as it will ruin all my pics. Any chance of moving/ getting rid of it?

Is that for all skins? Just female? All ages? Because as you can see from my screencaps I don't have any url across the stomach.. if you can be a little more specific I can check into it

I already responded to that in my original thread - it's a problem with the mesh having the stomach area mapped to the wrong part, not with the skintones. The mesh creator needs to fix it. I already fixed the original teen female Maxis version but my fix will not work for meshes based on the original.

Apologies for being so vague and thanks for all the help! The skins are beautiful and I'm going off, right now, to see 'em in action. :D

These are great, I was waiting for these also! But I, too, would also like to see Subtlety as an option for S3. Would that be possible??

Yaaay! Thank you! I love the regular Idolatry of Flesh skintones but the Reduxes are even better! Now these are defaults too! Hurrah!

Thank you, HP and Callistra!

I downloaded these today and I LOVE the way it looks in my game. Thanks! Now I have to figure out how to get rid of my old default eyes. I can't seem to find them to delete them, lol.

Oooh I love these. It was a little hard to find simple enough skins of the redux to make them good for defaults but some certainly work! You've done so much work all ready. I had almost as much fun choosing these as defaults as seeing them on my simmies!

I saw hysterical's gorgeous work and I NEW I needed it for defaults. The complex colours and the unshiny(?) bodies. AH! I wish I had the talent.

Thanks for doing the defaultwork for me! You rock!
