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.
UPDATE, 4 JANUARY 2015: A flaw in the texture of the children's glasses was discovered by blakegriplingph, who has now fixed it and given me a copy to upload. If you've experienced a problem with the texture on those glasses, please re-download - make sure you're using the version with 'Fixed' at the end of the package name, dated January 4 2015.

UPDATE, 10 OCTOBER 2011: Children's version added thanks to blakegriplingph who kindly converted them! See new screenshot taken by blakegriplingph, the fourth pic below. Get them from the Downloads tab.

Like probably most Sims players, I was surprised to see that TS3 came with no round glasses. How were we supposed to have Harry Potters, old-school nerds, hippies, mad scientists and other classic round-glasses-wearing types without them?

So, here are some round glasses. They are for men and women, all ages from Teen to Elder. They're recolourable and patternable, fronts and sides either together or separately.


For a look in-game, we have Mrs Crumplebottom looking fetching in flame-painted specs, and a typical mad scientist type:


Gunther Goth goes for sombre gothic black, and Arwen favours a green leafy look.

(Arwen's lovely LOTR dress by vectorlover, here: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=365587)


New children's version, converted by blakegriplingph:


There is one very small issue, and this may be why EA didn't supply round glasses for TS3: If your sim has an unusually narrow face or an unusually wide face, the shape of the lenses will deform slightly, becoming narrower with the very narrow face or wider with the very wide face. As long as your sim has a reasonably medium-width face, they'll be fine.

If you want SMALL round glasses (and/or small round sunglasses too), take a look here: http://www.modthesims.info/d/443662 .



INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS:

Unzip the .zip file, and copy the .package file to your Mods\Packages folder. You only need the one file for both men and women, as it is enabled for both.

If you don't have a Mods\Packages folder and/or don't know how to install .package files, please see full instructions here: http://www.modthesims.info/wiki.php...g_Package_Files

Thank you for looking and I hope you'll find these useful!
