I didn't much care for the default eyes that came with TS3, so I spent some time digging around and experimenting until I figured out how to change them. These may not be The Most Amazing Eyes Ever Created, but I think they're a far cry better than the standard ones, and will be a good stand-in until someone comes along and does something better. ^_~

Comparison shot: original vs. replacement, same eye colors.

They work for all ages and both genders, and look fine in all colors and shades. The files have been compressorized.

To get these to show up for all sims in your game in one easy step: After installing, simply delete the simCompositorCache.package from My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3. Don't worry, it'll respawn when you start your game.

Please note that you can only have one set of default replacement anythings in at one time. Be sure to remove any other default replacement eyes you may have before installing these, and likewise be sure to remove these if you find another set you'd prefer to have instead.

Feel free to do whatever you want with these, as long as you don't take credit for them. What was that light integrated in your mind?

The file was updated on July 9th, 2009, replaced by a smaller package file with only the relevant texture included. The eyes still look exactly the same, so you don't have to redownload if you don't want to.

Additionally, I've uploaded a tutorial on creating your own default replacement eyes. Have fun!

Gobs of love to Echo for Postal, which got me started in the file digging, and Inge for the amazingly useful SP3I, which I used to create these.

Skintones are available here.
