Here is a set of white glowing eyes for your cyborg or alien simmies.

They're for adults from Teen to Elder, and are an accessory, not a contact lens, so they will be found in the Accessories panel, in the Eyeglasses section.

They are in white only and are not recolourable (I have not been able to work out how to change the colour of the 'glow' property and don't know if it's even possible). I saw the old Horror/Sci Fi movie 'Colossus of New York' recently and felt inspired, ha ha: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_iL6ciL0Gq...h/colossus6.jpg .

They are a mesh and will need fitting to your sim's eye using the Eye Depth slider. You can fit them to achieve two different types of look, as below - depending on how far to the left or right you move the Eye Depth slider, they can be either fitted directly onto your sim's eye (left), or placed forward so that your sim has big round bulging glowing eyes (right). (Please note that you may need a slider range multiplier such as the ones that come with Awesomemod or Master Controller to get them to bulge as much as they do in these screenshots):


To fit them exactly into the sim's eye, you need to adjust the slider carefully to get the mesh so that it just sits inside the sim's eyelids without going too far to where the real eye shows through, but at the same time, far enough into the eye so that the upper eyelid can close over it (you'll see what I mean when you apply the mesh in CAS and your sim blinks). This can be a bit fiddly to get right.

To fit them as a round bulging eye, it's much easier - just pull them forward of the sim's real eyes until you get the round shape.

One issue: Note that your sim's eyes must be in an average/default position, the way they come on random sims in the Sim Bin. The mesh does not move along with the eye, so if you make your sim's eyes higher, lower, further apart or closer, the mesh will not be in the right position.

Also, you must have a medium-to-high spec graphic card for these eyes to display as seen here. If you have a low-end graphics card/chip, you won't be able to get the glowing effect. They will look flat greyish-white instead.

In-game, Mr Scary Cyborg has gone for the fitted-into-the-eye look, while Mrs Scary Cyborg has gone for the all-out round bulging eyes look.
They look very effective at night, below. Handy for finding your way around in the dark.
