This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
This came about while I started making my Kurt Cobain sim. The famous red glasses he wore to many red carpet events were already in the game were sadly only enabled for females. I thought this was utter bullocks and decided to allow both genders to wear these. I've also removed the ugly decal on the sides that I thought just looked horrible. These are available in default and non-default replacement.






The glasses, like the Maxis ones, have 2 re-colourable channels. They're enabled from teen to elder for both genders. These don't replace anything, though maybe I'll get around to learning how to do that, as the defaults are ugly anyways...
Anyway, enough Maxis-bashing!




As always, thanks for viewing.

Accessory Type: Glasses
Age: Teen Young Adult Adult Elder
Maxis Flags: Default
Gender: Male Female

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.

I looked at the thumbnail DAT KURT COBAIN?! He was a good man, and the glasses look great. Nice way to add a bit of funk to a guy's looks.

'Tis my intention. He needs quite a lot of work though, and I just don't have a lot of time now I'm back at school.
