Hello simmers,this is my first eye creation, and I wanted to make some innovation!



These eyes are "moving eyes"!
Actually they don't move at all on their own, they are just Costume makeup with eyes placed in 7 different positions : from squint to goggle eyes!
You'll see in CAS that there are 7 different version of these eyes in the same section!
In the .dds file they're just positioned differently so they could make squint and goggle effect
and one eye's position is distanced 2 pixels from another's!
I know that this sounds confusing but I hope my screenshots will clear all missunderstanding!
This is unfortunately AVAILABLE ONLY FOR FEMALES cause the game creates mirror effects
only for them so they can be either wide or close to each other!

When they are applied on men the eyes both move in the same direction which is very odd and that's the reason they're not available for them!

These eyes are available for all ages,only for female gender and they're in the Makeup --> Costume category in CAS



I've also made animation so you could see the difference of the positions!
In the animation there's only one eye but the effect is the same on the other one,but it's the mirror effect in relation to the nose!



The eyes have 4 changeable color parts and a smaller, realistic pupil!
Here are some color variations


These are non-default eyes aka contacts

Also one funny note : fleyeco is actually what my nickname flajko would sound in English! xD

Hair used on model is Savio's conversion of Anto 68 (free)

I just want to thank the moderators and upload managers for not rejecting me,and allowing me to change this thread:This was a beginners mistake,except sims I never uploaded any custom content like this!Thank you again!

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.

An interesting and useful idea, putting the irises in different positions for variety, and the eyes are pretty as well! (I know what you mean about the eyes not working on men - I had the same problem with my Cross-Eyes contact lenses - they were only crossed on women, but off to one side in men, very strange!)

Hm, if only you could have gotten these to work on males too. :p


Well I'm not a modder but maybe someone will figure this out one day and off course I'll be right behind him making these eyes also for male!
Thank you!

Hey monca!
I noted in download that this effect isn't available for males cause game is coded differently for their eyes!
So until someone finds a way to get the same effect on males I won't make them!
Maybe I could make them for males in standard position?
I'll see what I can do!

flajko, these are great and just what the game needed, especially for celebs. Thank you for making them. I can't wait to put them on Diana, but as my game is borked I will have to wait.

I wish people would read the overview properly.

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

Oh, this is fantastic! Never mind the color variations - for which I would have downloaded this anyway - but the fact that we can now change the position of the iris is soooooo welcome! Thank you so much and congratulations on this being accepted :-)

Dear friends!
Thank you for your love and support for my work!
I'm glad my creativity inspired many of you to start contributing to the Sims society or at least play The Sims game more joyfully.
I've had many walkouts and comebacks, but I've stopped playing and creating for some time now and this walkout is the final one, well until The Sims 4 shows up
This message is just my way of saying "Until we meet again" and thank you for supporting my threads and keeping my creations alive!
I'm also sorry because my unfinished sims in CFF had to be canceled this way but there will be time to get back to simming when we get the quality of the game we deserve! I really hope the Sims 4 will provide us that
