UPDATED!

I've had this project sitting on my computer for months now, and I finally decided to go ahead and finish it. Like the title says, I've created 8 new beauty marks. Why did I bold the words "beauty marks", you ask? Well, instead of making these costume make up like so many others out there, these show up under the Topical Details Section and are 100% layerable!


Yes, these moles actually show up under the beauty marks section and can be checked and layered with makeup, freckles, other beauty marks and costume make up!

How did I do this? Well, I used this tutorial by CmarNYC and tweaked it a bit. To make these took a little extra coding, but freeing up an accessory slot was worth it

Anyhoos, like I said, there are eight new moles but you can have only three custom beauty marks in your game at one time. Like with sliders, the game has a hard-coded limit of the amount of beauty marks that can be in the game (which is five by the way). Because you can only have five total, minus the two EA ones only left room for three custom beauty marks. However there is a mod by Rez Delnava that expands the GUI size in CAS, allowing for more beauty mark/freckles slots. The mod can be found here: http://modthesims.info/download.php?t=410965%29

If you do not have this mod, then you can only have three of my beauty marks in your game at one time.


These are Unisex and Uni-age (is that a word?) which means your sim well retain this beauty mark their entire life. When your sim ages up they will still keep their beauty mark and their children can inherit them

These are NOT recolorable because they function like the EA beauty marks. Yes you lose the ability to recolor them BUT it frees up the custom make up slot for something more useful like pretty contacts

Time for the boring stuff:

-You may upload/include these with sims (with proper credit, of course)
-You may not redistribute these on any other site, or claim them as your own
-You may "piggyback" off of these to make your own moles and blemishes

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.

Also curious, what accessory slot does this use, because with the previous patch and WA I lost the ability to layer accessories, which hurt? If there is another way to re-enable them please let me know.

Its genetic? :D
Does this make the old ones genetic? because they never inherit them. >_<

I love these...more distinction for our Sims. I got so excited about another creator who posted like 15 moles all together, put them in custom makeup and you can't change the eye color. I was a tad disappointed but still give the creator props for attempting this. Thank you for these...I hate how ea has limited us in so many ways...

It doesn't use an accessory slot...it works like the EA beauty marks...

I'm pretty sure, I've had sims inherit freckles and beauty marks before.

I am in awe. I love when creators go the extra mile, and making these as actual beauty marks instead of a face mask or accessory shows a lot of effort and care. GREAT work!


...that being said, I'm probably going to enable all five at once and name the sim "Mel Anoma". :D

Thank you so, so much for your hard work on these. They are absolutely STUNNING. They seem to work great in my game, but I'm having a strange issue: ever since I installed the mod to go along with these (to allow for more slots), all but 3 of the sims in my CAS pre-made bin have disappeared (2 custom male sims and one EA male sim remain). If I select either of those 3 sims, the game hangs and I can't exit CAS. I tried deleting the cache files, but the problem persists.
