Hello All, and welcome to my first download!

Eye Shine, is a default eye replacement for the original eyes that came with the shipped The Sims 3. As you already know, the defaults originally had barely any shading or texture, but these replacements will add what EA missed and do it pretty well.
These were made completely by hand with the shading tools in GIMP. So they aren't the most realistic eyes that look almost photorealistic. But they do have subtle realism. Eyes that are to realistic would look weird anyway.

Changes Made
-Increased shading around the eyes.
-More detail added to make it similar to a human eye.
-Look at the pics for more eye-ish goodness!

I copied these from Hysterical Paroxysm. I'm lazy XD. (If you want me to rewrite them HP just tell me
Installation Instructions:


Extract the contents of the rar file you have downloaded. Then, follow these instructions to get them working in your game.

For existing sims:

Unlike TS2, default eyes will not automatically update on existing sims! To force the game to reload, try deleting your cache files. Look in My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\ and delete the file called simCompositorCache.package. Also delete any files in the My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\WorldCaches folder. This should reload your sims with new their new eyes. There may be some lag at first when this happens..

Additional Credits:
Delphy, HP for the installation instructions, S3PI, GIMP.
