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.
So, needless to say I haven't had the time/energy for modding for pretty much this entire year, but ScorpioMaurus was nice enough to fix the broken skins and send them to me, so the skins should be functional again!

Update 7/14/20: Marking overlays are here!! You can find them in the tattoo section with separate sets for face, chest, and each arm/leg, so by putting them over different base coats you can make a calico, tuxedo, snowshoe, or just add a little accent to an otherwise solid coat. I plan to add more in future updates just like the skins, but the ones I've included here more or less cover the basics of "yeah that's what a cat looks like". Fixed an issue where the base skins stopped showing up for the spellcaster occult, they should be back to normal now.

Also, on a less important note, I chopped that one extremely long image of all the eye colors in two, because it was ridiculous and taking up half the page. The eyes themselves haven't changed at all.

Changelog:


------------

This started out as me just wanting to create one of my Skyrim characters as a Sim, and very quickly spiraled into a whole project. I refer to them as khajiit because of the original reason for making them, but moving forward I’ve tried to design them in such a way that they can fill pretty much whatever cat-people needs you might have and stick as closely as possible to the vanilla game’s art style. I’ve created them to work with all ages and genders as well as most occult types.

Eyes
The eyes are based off of domesticated cats and come in most possible natural colors, as well as an assortment of fantasy colors. They function as normal eye colors and can be passed to children.

Skins
Most of the skins are based more on the bengal breed with vague overtones of khajiit, plus a couple extra colors based on other breeds. The markings are an overlay that darkens with age (elders also get some grey fur on their faces). The only exception is the torties, because that got way too complicated with all the layers involved (maybe one day).

Markings
Instead of just painting white markings onto some of the skins, I decided to take a cue from real life cat genetics and create them separately as tattoos to go over any color. There are separate sets for face, chest, and each arm/leg that can all be mixed and matched for maximum variety. If you want to populate an entire small town with cat people that all look different from each other, now you can.

Future Plans
I add more coat colors and white markings on a semi regular basis; if there's one you really want, feel free to drop me a message. I can't guarantee if or when any given color will be added, since I'm doing this for fun in my downtime, but requests will definitely be taken into consideration.

They shouldn't appear on random sims, so you're good to go!

I appreciate the suggestion, but I've actually done a fair amount of modelling/animating in blender for other game projects and already have a tail mesh partly sculpted, mostly I just need to figure out how to make them work in this game/how detailed I can go with it (ideally I'd love to match up tail animations with sim animations to make them look as organic as possible, but barring that I at least want some idle movement so it doesn't look as much like a costume prop).

hi, I realy like this MODs. But I think most of Chinese people cant open this website smoothly. So can I share your mods to them on a Chinese website which Chinese people share everything about SIMS on it. I promise I will write your name and your link on it. Also if you want you can come to our website to share your own staffs. Our website is www.sglynp.com

MTS labels this as a recolor but i'm not sure what that means for skins. So my questions are: do children inherit these skins? And if so, what are the chances of children inheriting the same skin if one parent has a different skin? I do see from the pictures you shared that the skins are on each age group and i think they are fantastic! I love how the patterns/marking get more defined as they age.

These are fantastic! Great balance of colours, details and smoothness, they fit right in with the rest of the world! Kinda makes me wish we could've had other breeds of Khajiit in the newer TES games.

Honestly I'm not sure, I didn't think to make them inheritable or not, but I didn't actively disable them from being inhereted. If they aren't I'll try to figure out how to make them pass down.

The link isn't working for me, but I'm guessing you're talking about Inigo? If so you're in luck, I was already thinking about adding one in the future!

Default Nice, But!
I wish you had put the eyes in the EYES category instead of face paint, everyone does that, and then I have to fix the eyes for each outfit, everyday, formal, and so on, plus no way a Sims offspring will inherit the eyes either! It would be nice if you could make a version that is in the eyes!

Yeah I'm realizing I should have done that; I'll see what I can do about making a version with them as actual eyes.

These are really amazing! I love being able to make my Khajiit heroes in the sims! But I do wonder if you'd be willing to add a more calico one? I love the tortoise shells for my Dragonborn, but my Nerevarine was a calico and none of the other skins really work for that.

Thanks! I'm actually working on a set of white marking tattoo overlays so people can make calico/tuxedo/whatever else, I was going to do a calico skin originally but realized this way offers a lot more potential variety for character designs (and plan to add a couple more tortie patterns in the next update, some of which will be blotchier and more typically "calico" looking).

Would it be possible to have the markings as skin details so they can be passed down? I dunno if that's hard to do but it would be so cool if you could inherit them from your parents, especially if they'd work with other skin details but not each other.

I don't know that it would be possible with the way skin details work in CAS, but I'll look into it.
