Hello!

So, a lot of people have been asking me to upload eyes that I use on my Sims. I would have done it a long time ago, if not my laziness and the borky eye-whites that I could never get right
These contacts have much smaller irises and pupils than EA eyes, custom sclera mask has some more heavy shading on it, so they are great for realistic Sims (celebrities, real life people, etc..).
There are so many great contacts available already, so don't expect anything super awesome

They named after another ossim song, you can watch the video of it, featuring the great ferromagnetic liquid in it, on YouTube. Hey, you can learn some physics and chemistry from it, lol

Important info:

- Contacts are available for all ages (excluding babies).
- Both genders.
- Can be found in CAS > Makeup > Face Overlays.
- 4 recolorable channels: base iris color, outline color, inner ring color and eye-whites (sclera).
- Custom thumbnails are included.


Do not upload to other sites!

These are not default replacements!
There won't be a default replacement version due to the painted sparkles and iris size. Replacements would require to remove the sparkles so they won't be merged on one color (defaults can have one 1 recolorable channel) and these don't look good without the sparkles. Iris size is very small, so they are not vampire-friendly.
I recommend using the HQ mod for using these contacts.

Thanks and comments are welcome!

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 love those, they are so pretty <3 You know I've waited so long for these too be uploaded, because everytime I downloaded something from you I was like: omg, I love those eyes. And then I look at the credits and saw it were unreleased eyes from you and I was like: Aww no! Why? So I was really disappointed and I kept checking your uploads. So this made my day
