So, stepping out of my comfort zone, I branched into something a little different.

One thing I hated about the EA eyes were how dull they were. And, even most of the custom eyes out there are very dark and gloomy (no offense to any creators). So I decided to try my hand at making my own set of eyes, called the "Bright Eyes" set.



What makes my eyes unique is that they are noticeably brighter and they have a somewhat jeweled glassy effect to them.

Another thing that irked me about the default EA eyes are how big and cartoony they are, so I made my eyes a little bit smaller than original ones (10% smaller to be exact).



These eyes are completely recolorable, and they show up for all ages and genders.

Remember these are default replacements so you'll have to remove any other default replacement eyes to use these. Also you might have to delete your simcompositer cache file to get the eyes to regenerate on preexisting sims.

Update
I also added a contacts version of these because I realized that some pre-existing sims looked pretty freaky with the default replacements So to use these, go to the costume makeup section in CAS and look for the Bright Eyes thumbnail. And unlike a lot of contacts, these are completely recolorable as if they were the sims genetic eyes




You may (of course) use these for sims and such, just please link back here for the download instead of including the eyes in your upload.

And just like with everything else, uploads of my content to the exchange and/or paysites are frowned upon :D

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Hey Dal, any chance of you converting these to contacs? These must have taken you ages to make. Good job.

I know you are going to be looking in here, so let me thank you again for my eyebrows. They look great. It's the sim that doesn't, lol.

I feel honoured, a Spanish magazine wants to feature my Desperate Housewives and Will Smith in their feature on celebrity sims.
