hi guys -

here's my secret weapon....a way to ensure beautiful parents with beautiful children who will grow up to be beautiful!

these are face template *replacement* files.
you should place each .package file in your regular Downloads folder.
they will completely replace the original first face template in your game (the heart-shaped face).

I forgot to mention:
You must delete any other default face templates you have for this face (the heart-shaped face, 001) for them to work correctly.

i hope that you enjoy using these... please comment if you do!

<3 helaene

Note:

This will NOT change the faces of your sims that you've already created...it is only used for future sim-making endeavors.

Note #2:

I do plan to make more replacement sets in the future....I hope that's a good thing!

though i appreciate your constructive criticism, i think you'd see a noticeable difference in your game. the differences are more apparent when viewing male faces, and faces in other ages than adult. the eyes are a bit closer together and not as deep-set. the nose has been altered considerably in some of the age groups. the top lip has been made a bit thicker to even out the disparity between the lips. the face shape has been altered to smooth it out a bit, especially around the chin.

I love it, but here's my issue - will it replace the face shape of those already wearing it in-game?

No it will not replace the faces of your sims that you've already created.

That's a great point that I forgot to mention...thank you!

Helaene... sweetheart... I will have you know that just yesterday, I was saying to myself..

"self.. wouldnt it be cool if there were more faces to choose from? After all self, you always use that first heart-shaped face... wouldnt it be awesome if there were some variation of that same face since you never use the other faces? Huh self? Whats that you say self? Why yes, that would be incredible..."


So Helaene, as a fan of your makeup and clothing, I thank you, VERY much dear.

Keep up the great work!

These faces are beautiful, I can see the difference from the original Maxis.
But the heart-shaped face was really the only Maxis face I liked, but I can't wait to see any other default faces you release, especially if they replace the freakish Maxis ones

If God intended for there to be Pay-sites for the Sims 2, He would have given us all Paypal accounts.

Great job! You should make replacements for the other ugly face templates to make them not so weird that way the whole sim neighborhood will not look that same. Thanks!

#15 Old 28th Jan 2007 at 1:05 AM
They are beautiful. You did a great job. Is there any way to have them in addition to the maxis face? That first one is pretty much the only one I use... lol. Wish I could get rid of everything else maxis made...Bet my game would run better!

Plays well with others

I have an infant clothing override in my game. If I download the face replacement, will they conflict?

I can't imagine that these two things would conflict....the only thing that my download does is change one of the template face shapes to choose from.

These look SO much better. Thank you so much.
So it won't fix the already-made townies?

No, it won't automatically fix your townies that are already made. It will be an option for any townies which are created in neighborhoods you make after you've installed this download.

If you want a good way to change the looks of in-game townies, check this out: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=108057

Thanks for asking this.....another thing I forgot to mention in the original post!

You must delete any other default face templates you have for this face (the heart-shaped face, 001) for them to work correctly.

Unfortunately, I don't use custom skintones really; so I wanted to know if I could see a picture of this face replacement on a maxis skintone?
