Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
A few people mentioned they don't like where my reflections usually sit so I've included a small set of four eyes without any reflection. You can export and add in your own, or make a makeup mask with the reflection so you can change it easily. I've also included the eyes and reflection mask BMP's to make the process easier.


Feel free to use the bmp's for a base of your own eyes and reflections or anything else you want to do with it. You don't have to notify me if you are planning on uploading unless you want to but I would appreciate it if you would credit me somewhere, and remember: No uploading to paysites of any shape or form!!

Anva! I was just thinking about you today when I was going through Bodyshop, as I have so many of your gorgeous downloads. Another lovely eyeset from you to add to my collection. <3 Thank you!

Thanks for the generous texture sharing policy. Please add whether or not you allow uploads of stuff made with your reflection (or eye) textures. Thanks. I have no plans, but others well might.

Anva, these eyes look so real and I love that you also made a mask for those EA created Sims we can now change.
Thank you for these and all the other great things you have created for us. I know my genetics and make-up folder have a lot of your things in them.

LOL Are you kidding me! I should have checked this site for updates about 8 hours ago before i painstakingly 'lowered' all the irises in your last beautiful eye set. I loved them so much it was my very first attempt at playing around with eyes. I had never even selected that section in BS before, not even to have a look.
Anyway, thankyou for another set of beautiful eyes
#15 Old 5th May 2008 at 3:07 PM
i dont know why anyone would complain about the reflections on any of your sets. theyre all beautiful the way they are, and the reflections you do are more realistic. these are gorgeous, as are all your others. thanx!

I absolutely love all your eyes and use them very frequently. The reflections are gorgeous, and I haven't seen anyone who could make them as well as you.

I'm sorry to say Anva but all your creative work has done nothing to my Sims. The pupil of the eyes when I click on one of yours are up higher then normal. It almost looks like my sims are looking up at the sky except with more color and not 'white'. And this is with the default sims heads.

THe eyeshadows do not work as they should either. When I click to use them, they appear to be black little specs on my sims eye lids and there is no difference with the eye-lashes.

I love your work, I think they would be awesome if they were to work correctly with my sims. Is there something I am missing?

That certainly shouldn't happen and I've never seen or read anything like that. Maybe you have an older graphics card? Also, you might want to make sure you have only one set of defaults (one skin, one makeup, one eyes) installed if you have any at all. I had more than one set and it caused my sim's faces/bodies to go all black/do strange things. Other than that I'm afraid I've no idea what the problem could be other than some other content making your game behave wonky.
