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.
Hey folks =)

First it was not my purpose ever creating a another Skintone For the sims, but because I'm so dissapointed of the engine of Sims3 and the pudding faces I had try it for my own.

The Skintone I created for all ages and gender and it's completely hand-drawn. it looks for me very natural and less like "pudding", so i hope that you will like it too.

I created a Face fix overlay too, that removes the size of the iris, and the texture of the Lips.

If you downloaded only the SKintone file and it looks not as in the pictures and the lips are even darker ingame (especially by the darker tones), you should download the Face fix too. Before adding it to your "Mods-Folder", please make sure you have NOT installed another face fix overlay yet.

UPDATED: The color difference between the face and body texture should be fixed now. I have done a few little changes here and there too. Please re-download =)

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 like these very much, but I am happy with the defaults that I have. Would it be possible for you to make these non-defaults? I do like having a variety of skins to choose from as some look better on fat or fit sims than others. Thanks for the hard work!

I spent all day yesterday searching for the perfect new defaults for my Sims and ended up combining 5 different ones..
I guess I'm going to have to replace them again; these are great!

Lovely job on the faces, and the fit sim. The nostrils look great.

What about chunky sims? Will they have washboard abs? Does TS3 have different skins for fit and fat, and does it blend between them as sims get chunkier?

Does this skin have different faces for different ages? Adult men's faces are chiseled, but toddlers have baby fat and chubby cheeks.

I haven't tryed out how they look on "big" Sims yet. There are just one Skin for every gender...thats the bad.. but i will take pictures soon! And...yes, they have all different faces.
