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.
Now I've been playing Sims 2 again and I really like the servos. They’re quirky little robot people and a trademark of the series. But there are some daft little things I don't like about them that I tried to fix for my game. So I thought I might as well just upload them here, too.

First of is the eye. Now I like the sort of dalek-esque eyestalk but the actual eye always looked somewhat creepy and out of place to me, like they were real human eyes that were ripped out and shoved into the servo’s head or whatever. So I made my own!

I’ve replaced the creepy and crappy Maxis eye with MycroftPorthos from Deviant Art’s Wheatly eye . I think this gives the servos a much nicer sci-fi look to them, and I’ve even managed to make all the versions for the lifestates! You get reddish-pink eyes for vampires, yellow eye as well as black bows for females on the warewolves and just the default look for the witches.




Oh, but this isn't all! See, the female servo seems to be the thing people can’t stand about our little robotic friends. Some people hate the lipstick, others the bright pink dress – and so because I believe in lots of choice and personalization, I’ve different versions for everybody! The choice is to whether or not have lipstick and what colour the dress that they wear when they change into formal.

When you download and open the rar file you will see four package files. Here's what they are:


Dazro_defaultservo_blackdress – This is the file that has lipstick on the female servo and has a black dress for formalwear. (Top right)

Dazro_defaultservo_blackdress_nolipstick
– This file has no lipstick on the female servo and includes the black formal dress. (Bottom right)

Dazro_defaultservo_pinkdress – This has the lipstick on the female servo, and the pink formal dress. (Top left)

Dazro_defaultservo_pinkdress_nolipstick - This file has no lipstick the female servo, and has the pink formal dress. (Bottom left)


THESE ARE *DEFAULT REPLACEMENTS* MEANING WHEN YOU DOWNLOAD THE rar YOU CAN ONLY EXTRACT ONE OF THE PACKAGE FILES INTO YOUR DOWNLOAD FOLDER. IF YOU EXTRACT MULTIPLE FILES THEY WILL OVERRIDE AND CONFLICT WITH EACH OTHER AND MAKE YOUR GAME DIE. YOU ARE WARNED.

You may notice that some of the servo pictures look browner than the others. That was because when I took those pictures the weather in the game changed and I didn't notice until after. The actual colour looks like the bluer pictures. Anyway I hope you like this mod and hopefully I’ll be able to make another one without disappearing for half a year again.....
