-------------------------Something want to say---------------------------------

On 1 Jan. 2013, I posted on my blog saying I felt there were some similarities between the lately published skin by LL, also several ones published before, and the new skin by me.

For me,there'is no necessary for LL to admit that she used my work as a reference. And if she has a resonable evidence to show those similarities are just a coincidence, then I will try to take it well.

Everytime when I published my creations I stressed that "Please DO NOT claim my creations as yours, and DO NOT modify my textures without permission .", but if my texture was used as material indeed, I will not investigate the relevant responsibility. But for sure I would like the information of the original author to be retained, and that's enough for me.
And this article mentioned the similarities can be seen here: http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_63f63ea9010181m8.html

Then the next day, January 2, 2013, I wanted it can be more clear to explain the production process of my skin , I posted another bolg and here it is:
http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_63f63ea9010182lx.html
(sorry for the blog was written in chinese, you can have a brife idea with the help of the assistance of the translator)

I'd never have guessed that lemon leaf, or S-Club,would accuse me for stealing their works instead, which seems completely nonsense. I have started making skins for sims since sims 2, there is no need for me to steal the work of someone (subaxi) whose first sims 3 skin was made with my sims 2 skin texture. Their evidence is that the publish times of my works are later than theirs, everytime when i post a new work(/ or creation), lemon leaf do will keep up closely with me.

At last,People doing any days on watching.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------


At first, I just wondered what effect there would be with body map of 2048X2048 and I had a try. Fortunately I got good results that the party-coloured parts appearing in picture are not very sharp. So that I modify this skin a lot with this result.
And these modifications include:
Body part:
I repainted the shape of clavicle for both male and female, and changed the appearance of males’ abdominal muscle and females’ chest greatly. Besides, I did a little adjustment on the back、arms and legs.





Face part:
I also did some adjustments on the features, and put skin textures on the face part.





--------------------------------------------------------------------------
This set contains:
1 normal default skin.
2 high quality texture[2048x2048] non-defalut skin.
The Light skin has two tone ramps, and the Tan skin has four tone ramps.Muscle slider can be applied. So it means you must have patch 1.17 or newer.
Default skin is for ALL ages.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

I have been meaning to come back to comment again to tell you after I tested this skin, it has become my new default skin. something I thought might never happen

TBH I noticed the similarities between your skin and the S-club skin a very long time ago before you brought it up. But I never assumed plagiarism. Because of the sims 3 game engine texture limit there are only so many ways to blend textures before they begin to look alike. After all, look at how many CC lipsticks look alike

IMHO is that I like your skin better as a default skin because of it versatility, soft finish,and natural yet look(which is why you probably chose the name). Whats even more impressive is that its high definition without being dirty(no graphic mods needed :D), blends well, looks good on almost every sim without distorting the face or making it too pretty/shiny/distinctive,and is not too thick that is covers face and body morph details. And I found this is the only skin in the sims that has been able to achieve all of this at the same time.

F.1B skin by S-club has slightly more thicker texture that covers some details and has more glamorous highlights ,the eyelids look dirty when closed and looks slightly less realistic. Defiantly not natural and as versatile as your skin so I couldn't use it as default.

Furthermore, I think the S- club 2.0 recent released skin that used a similar high resolutionprocess, is also too distinctly detailed and not versatile like your skin is. Besides the moles and freckles, the bodies are way too hilighted, and the abs on the male look unrealistic and drawn on.

your skin works much better with the tone ramps, and normal maps.

One thing for sure is the difference in aesthetic quality is clear! in which, you(imo) is superior

I have been waiting for a skin like this for the sims 3 for a long time. Thinking it was near impossible to achieve. I no longer have to wait any more, thank-you !

Random question, but where can I get the eyes that are on that sim in your pic? They're GORGEOUS!

My machinima music series "Had I Known" *four years in the making* will be well underway......as soon as I get a computer that will run TS3 properly! •sigh• But it'll be soon! :)

Try enable some anisotropic filtering in your graphics card's control panel.

Ephemera,
I have been a great admirer of you work since TS2 and I am always amazed at your ability to make even the ugliest Sim look gorgeous. So, a million thanks for this marvelous skin for TS3.

Anyone who is familiar with your work *knows* you would never copy someone's work and present it as your own. You have always been a hard-working person, and the quality of your work shows your constant effort to create stuff near to perfection. In short, you don't need to prove anything to anyone.

I've just spent one zoom-rotate-stare hour admiring it before I dressed them. And I'm on medium/low graphics.

Do you know what usually couses such symptoms?
