ECO version updated again 14/10/20 to make the file a texture replacement only package once more.

Updated for the Eco Lifestyle patch
[strike]For those updated to the Eco Lifestyle patch I have now added a new file that has been fixed using CmarNYC's TS4 Defaults Fixer program. It is a life saver.
Please delete the old file and replace it with new one as the name is slightly different.
The file is slightly different now though and includes the CASP resources meaning that the alien eye swatches will now show the CC wrench icon (unless you use a mod to disable it).[/strike]
I am leaving the original version up as well for those players who use of the Legacy version of the game.

Ever thought the GTW alien eyes are a little bid dead looking compared to the regular Sim eyes? Well, they're lacking the painted on shine detail that the regular eyes have. This file adds in a shine spot on each eye design as well as the added bonus of including Qahne's blue tongue and gums. This means that any aliens you have (using alien eyes) will get a blue mouth interior without you having to apply it manually.

This single .package file includes overrides for all nine alien eye textures. Simply place it in your Mods folder. If you decide you no longer want these defaults then simply delete the file and your aliens will revert to their old selves.

The tongue and gum texture was created by Qahne and has been used here with permission.
As this is a default replacement, it WILL conflict with any other mods to alter the EA alien eyes.
It CAN be used in combination with Qahne's TS2 Alien Eye + Blue Gums as they are not a default.

Tried installing it with latest patch, but I get this launch error:

Cannot start:

C:\Users\Gabriel\Documents\Electronic Arts\Los Sims 4\Mods\MMDEFAULTalienEyeswBlueMouth.package


Know how to fix this? Until then, I'll have to uninstall it.

Not a clue I'm afraid. It's running perfectly fine in my game and I've had no other reports. The file only contains texture images so I can't even begin to understand how it would stop your game from starting.

Curious question, would it be possible for Just the Mouth to be Recolored, for those of us who wan't are own Eye Default Replacements (because Eaxis's version doesn't look that great)?

The mouth texture could probably be made as a face detail or tattoo but that would require picking it for every Sim and it wouldn't be genetic.
If you want it to work with your own custom default eyes then I think it would have to be edited into those eye textures as well.
I can't think how else it could be done.

It is possible to have multiple swatches on teeth, could it be done by just having a different swatch for the color?

That probably could work now that the vampires patch introduced the editing of teeth. I can't promise it's something I will ever get around to looking at though. It should be simple enough to have a look with Sims4Studio if you want.

Updated again to make the Eco version of the file a simple texture override again thanks to CmarNYC's updated fixer tool.
