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.
These are my favorite skin textures EVER! Teru_k is a genius. I decided to make some recolors though!

These are less pink- and grayish than the originals.
There are 6 naturals:
Light, Medium, Tan, Dark, Darker, Darkest.
(If you want more light options, I recommend downloading teru_k's originals ; the lighter skins are perfect imo.)

I made defaults of Light to Dark.
(If you want to make another skin a default, check this great tutorial! )
I'm sure you know this, but just in case: You can only have one set of skin defaults in your downloads folder at once.

I also made 5* unnatural colors! Perfect for your gods and goddesses! Because everyone has them, right? RIGHT?
Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, White.
(For your Fire, Air, Earth, Water and Energy goddesses/witches Or why not for Avatar sims or other aliens?)

* Or really 6. There are 2 red skins. MTS thought the first version was too saturated, as some of the contours disappeared, so I made a less saturated version. However, I still prefer the more saturated one. I use them for gods so I think it's a benefit that they're strong and glowing. Or maybe it's because I'm used to it. In any case, it's up to you which one you prefer, so I included them both! Just delete the one you don't like. There are lots of comparison pictures in the gallery.

All recolors are for all ages and sexes.

I recommend shady's alluring eyes with these skins, they go together very well imo. I use them as defaults . But I made a dark brown recolor. I may upload it by request.

Lastly, enjoy!

hi :-)
your skins look really good, I like the natural colours a lot.
I just have 2 questions because I'm not sure about 2 things:

- are the non default skins geneticized? That would be fab :-)
- are the natural skins also natural about anatomics or do they come with the green leaves, we see on your pics? :-)

thx for answers :-)

No they're not geneticized. I didn't even think of that! (I didn't even know what that was until now, haha.) These are my first skin recolors. But it looks like that'd be an easy fix! May make an update in the future, or if you can't wait, here's how to edit them in SimPE. It looks very simple. (No pun intended.)

And ofc there are no leaves on the skins. Females have nipples. It's just that MTS requires us to censor our pictures.

I know I can wait, like a month, because that's all I ever download are anatomically correct(geneticized is the incorrect term) TS2 skins! If the female teen and adult have nipples and the "lower female parts" then I'll download and use them in-game, I'm not a pervert, as I am with my Anime and Manga and every other form of entertainment and graphic literature, I just prefer it uncensored, unedited, proportionate(to a degree with Anime & Manga or visual literature) and anatomically correct!

Geneticized is the correct term when it comes to sims skins. It means that if someone with a very dark skin has a child with someone with a very light skin, the child could get any skin in-between those. If it's not geneticized, there's instead a 50/50 chance the child gets either skin from the parents. Has nothing to do with being anatomically correct or not.

Anatomically correct means there's nipples, which these skins have, or nipples and genitals, the latter which is not allowed on MTS but on sexysims.

Like I previously explained, I only censor these pictures because MTS requires me to. Of course there are no leaves on the actual skins.

By the way, people who are not perverts don't feel the need to say they're not perverts.
