This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Here's a set of Cyberpunk-ish sunglasses inspired by shades from the 'Matrix' films and the 'Deus Ex' game.


They're available in all ages from Teen to Elder, and although they look their best in classic Matrix black, they can be recoloured and repatterned if you really feel you must.


In-game, JC Denton favours them in classic 'Sunglasses At Night' black:


But on the other hand, ever-trendy Boyd Wainright goes for a purple flower pattern, Cycl0n3 Sw0rd looks pretty in pink, and Mrs Crumplebottom is looking dangerous in steel grey.



Made using the fabulous CTU: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=364926


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 shades useful for your cool sims.

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.

if You have WA you may need to convert these into sims3pack files because at the moment there is a strong evidence that .package files are slowing WA to a crawl


I converted the morpheus shades made by the same user as a personal experiment and it works fine just import the . package file into ''the sims resource workshop'' and convert them into a sims 3 package as per the ones used by the sims store and install the same way the game will stop crawling and lagging

I'd like to have Neo in my game too! Unfortunately I don't know of a sim of him for TS3 (there were a few for TS2, I had one of them) nor the specific clothes he wears, I guess the nearest outfit to a Matrix sort of outfit I've seen is the 'Long Mandarin Coat' outfit at the EA Store: http://store.thesims3.com/productDe...=male&startAt=0

A few people have said they think my JC Denton sim, uploaded here, looks like Neo/Keanu Reeves, but I'm not sure about the resemblance myself - you could check that sim out and see if it might help you in modifying him into Neo!
