This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

I had an idea how to create new facetemplates. Because in bodyshop the options are restricted, why not use a 3d program to edit the faces? So I have altered the faces in Milkshape by making the whole face wider and some little corrections. In Bodyshop I made the fine adjustments.

I have started with the first facefile (01 - heart). Now it looks more realistic.

They look like this in game with a realistic skin:

Here is a comparison between the original facefile (right) and my altered facefile (left). Also you can see, how the facefile looks with a maxis skin.

Look at the attached images to see the faces with diffrent emotions.

What are facetemplates?

When you create a new Sim you can choose from precast faces. If you put my facetemplate (8 files - one for each age) in your Download folder the first preacst is overridden by mine.

Deinstall them by removing the files from your Downloads folder.

This template is beautiful. The first one is the only one I EVER use(the rest are hideous) and I still always tweak it for at least ten or fifteen minutes! Having these will make creating a good looking sim so much easier, thanks!

If Maxis had made sims look like this from the beginning they would not need a sims 3 for anything but the interactions. This is stunningly beautiful. Thank you!

There was a problem when I used this download. Maybe someone can help me?

It was that I could not load Create-A-Family or any other families. The game would load correctly, but CAS and any lots would seemingly never stop loading. When I removed the files, the game worked fine. I put them in my Downloads folder...that was the right place, right?

I tried it with the template and no other downloads, but once I added the other downloads more than a week old, my game stopped working again. I have only one hack, which is the "Last Name Chooser" for marriage (you can find it easily on here). If that's even relevant. I do not have any other face templates.

I only have the basegame installed, if that makes a difference.
Please let me know, because the faces look beautiful and I'd really like to use them.

Wow! This is very natural and beautiful. I can't wait until you have a complete set. Yes, the heart-shaped face was already the best one, but I was tired of seeing my sims walk around with skinny faces. It makes the men look too girly.

I'd like to second this, I would replace any other template but the Maxis one in question!

i've already dowloaded default replacement facetemplates and i was wondering if this is will replace one of those or if it will show up as a custom faceplate.

This is absolutely lovely! And don't feel bad, I also couldn't manage the totally new template instructions. ><

This is a *beautiful* face and I look forward to downloading more of these, as you work your way through the set.

Since I downloaded this for my game, I have literally been checking back *every day* (sometimes even a couple of times a day, just in case you're in a different time zone to me) to see whether you've made other faces. Please say you're working on more!

Okay, begging over. Heh. Thanks for this one, anyway. It is a truly wonderful addition to my game.
