This is an assortment of 5 robotic eyes. They are located in Full Face Makeup and work as contacts. They work on any sim of any age, but are ideal for simdroids and plumbdroids (simbots and plumbots that have a humanoid appearance).

They look best and most realistic when used with the Glowing Eyes for Humanoid Plumbots or Simbots mod. All screenshots are shown on plumbdroids with that mod. They will not glow on regular sims.

There are a few ways you can make plumbdroids:
Build a plumb-droid without MC
How to make a plumbot look like a sim.
Making an android/robot hybrid plumbot

The eyes show a little bit of light leakage on the lower outer edge of the iris when used with the glowing eyes mod. This seems to have nothing to do with the iris texture size or position as even textures that cover the entire eyeball exhibit this minor issue in the same place.

The five eye styles included in this download are:
  1. Illusive Man eyes from the Mass Effect 2 and 3 games.

  2. HAL eyes. Resembles the glowing camera eye from HAL 9000 in 2001: A Space Odyssey.

  3. Droid eyes. Resembles the Verizon Droid X phone eye.

  4. Techno eyes. A unique design from darthblinx on deviantART, which unfortunately, due to the lack of detail in Sims 3 eyes, doesn't do his original design justice. However, it looks good in the game. The irises being asymmetrical gave female sims a little bit of the illusion of a cross-eyed appearance because female sim eye textures are mirrored, so to reduce that illusion I've rotated the irises 90-degrees in comparison to darthblinx's artwork.

  5. Robotic eyes. I followed this Photoshop tutorial, How To Create Robotic Eye With Photoshop, except instead of using my finished product for artwork, I used it to make a robotic eye for sims.

Each one is in a separate .package file so you can install them all, or only the ones you like.
