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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Basic brows...

Nothing too special here, just a conversion of the brows I made for TS2, with some changes. Works for both genders and all ages. Thumbnail may show the incorrect age/gender but they work fine in-game - it's just a thumbnail issue. Four styles, all looking fairly groomed.

Yeah, I know, it's not hair, but I get burnt out and need easy projects sometimes.

To install:

1. Download the rar file and extract the .package files from it.

2. Install the .package files - recommended is use of the Helper Monkey!

3. Play! You shouldn't have to delete your cache files. Find the brows in Create a Sim for your new sims, or Change Appearance on a mirror for your existing ones. They will not show under the custom * symbol, but you'll notice which ones are different if you now have default replacement eyes, as they'll be generated with your new eye texture instead of the old.

No requests, please...

I've already got plenty of ideas of my own, and not near enough time or motivation to make everything. With so much to do, I really don't take requests, suggestions, hints, or "ooh that'd be cool!" into consideration, unless you're offering me a clone army with which to do my bidding.

Huge thanks to:

Delphy - For CTU, with which I made this.

All the awesome folks who figured out the file formats and gubbins to allow this to happen.

Baby Einstein - For saving my sanity.

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.

You know exactly what we are craving for. I have 2 brows that I am overusing, so good to have some more variety. *throws hands up and do the wave* For all ages too, wow, this is a plus!

I know doing one thing can burn a person out, glad you found this easy to do. I really didn't expect too much from you cause baby Einstein would be taking all of your time, especially as he becomes mobile. Thanks to the baby for saving your sanity.
