Hi, I hope this is ok to upload here. (This is my first piece of custom content)

I searched around, but I wasn't able to find anything like this anywhere, so I decided to make it myself. Sorry if it has already been made!

If you didn't know, The Sims 2 has a "mannequin" skin tone that is hidden in normal gameplay. This skin tone has a unique eye color, which can be accessed through the alien eyes in Debug Mode in Create A Sim. HOWEVER, if you have the Creature Fixes mod by Pescado, this will no longer work.

I wanted my mannequins to keep this eye color while also having the benefits of Creature Fixes, so here it is. Maybe other people might find it useful.

BIG thank-you to treeag for his Unlocked Creature Skins. Without it I probably wouldn't have been able to do this.

Works on all ages (including baby), genders, and skintones as to be expected. They are genetic, but should not spawn on Townies. Since both the mannequin skin tone and alien eyes are treated as Dominant, these eyes are also treated as Dominant. (If your mannequins plan on getting pregnant, you should get Mannequin Babies Can Be Born by bloodredtoe if you haven't already.)

Safe to say this requires Base Game at most. This was created with all packs up to and including Mansion & Garden Stuff installed, but I tested this with just Base Game and it seems to show up fine.

I haven't thought about this. Are these considered as gray eyes?

Sorry, but I'm not sure what you mean by this?

If you're talking about dominant/recessive they should be as dominant as alien eyes, since they would appear for mannequins with alien eyes. (This is explained on the wiki but basically sims are supposed to not show alien eyes if they do not also have the alien skin tone, so mannequins would instead show these grayish eyes.) Also, the mannequin skin tone is dominant so I figured it made sense for their eyes to be as well.

Forgive me! I have been logged out for a while.

The mannequin eyes are painted on the skin, so you would have to access it through one of the face textures. Since they are not a separate color like blue or green I'm not sure they can be replaced, so sorry if this isn't any help.

I meant that because you put these eyes on the same picture as the brown eyes, and now I cannot help but see them as a desaturated and lighter version of those brown eyes, so I just see them as brown ><
