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!

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.

Very strange, don't know what to suggest except to try downloading them again in case the file got corrupted somehow - good luck!

I wondered if maybe the file had become corrupted on MTS's server, so I downloaded the file from here myself and put it in TS3 on a spare PC in which these glasses had not previously been installed, and they look perfectly fine there. So the problem is not at my end or MTS's end. It's very strange that your friend has the same problem - could both of you be using some item of cc that conflicts in some way? Do you have problems with any other custom content? If so, it might be a good idea for you to ask for help in the Help forum. If not, then I don't know what to advise, because there's nothing wrong with the file itself.

They don't work anymore, since the last update (1.38) of the game.

I've just updated to 1.38 and the glasses work fine - see below post-patch 1.38 pics from my own game, both adults and kids versions. Glasses wouldn't really stop working due to a patch, they're just a simple accessory, so I don't know why they would have stopped working in your game, the only thing I can think of is if maybe you've recently installed an accessory that conflicts with these for some reason.
