Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hey : )

This time i converted my "most popular" eyeset for ts2. Because many people dont want to change their default replacements each time they see a new one they like to have (i would`nt do it too ) i made these eyes as contacts with 3 color channels (the eyeball, the outer iris and the center of the iris)

If you have already downloaded the eyes and they dont show up ingame, please redownload!




Eye Type: Contacts
Eye Style: Human Alien Fantasy Realistic

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

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.

These were my favourite defaults in Sims2. I kept them because nothing was better in my opinion, so I be really very thankful if you were to one day make them defaults too for the sims 3, if you happen to have the time and the urge to do so. but thanks for the contacts

I really dont want to add ontoo the Default request since theirs so many, but I use defaults for Genetic Reasons and so the Default simmies dont look so Fugly.
But I love thesee! and I dont use contacts...
But I'll give you props for the wonderful Contacts.
Heheh :D

I've got these in contacts and they are absolutly gorgeus! Thank you so much for making them!! I would have died if I had to live with the EA version! Why can't EA just ask great people like you to make there eyes and skin and such! It would be so much better quality then!! Again thank you so much!! ^__^

hey shady, is it possible to make contacts for most of your replacements? I've used one default already and then i see another and I don't want to change it, not just from your pile of eyes but from other artists as well.. Your eyes would have to be my most favourite sets, and judging by their popularity other users think so too!

you have to add the .package file after extracting (with WinRAR for example) to your "mods" folder where your game is installed. When you dont have any other CC installed before, take a look at the "install instructions"

Just got the Supernatural EP and was wondering if this mod is compatible. I know it's compatible with all others up until this one.

Wonderful! :D

I'm assuming it'll work for upcoming expansions too? Just wondering what kind of mod it is, and whether I need to check it against new expansions/patches every time, lol
