So I installed Pets for the first time and I was appalled at the eyes they gave cats, and the horrible black dots that are on the eyes, so I fixed the dots and made some default replacements!



There are two variations of these eyes. One is called Purrrrfect and the other is Local Black Cat.

Purrrrfect has a constricted pupil, LBC has a dilated one for the cuter look that you can’t get with constricted pupils!



There is a third option, if you just want to fix your cat’s black dots, but want to keep the EA eyes, then you will want the Cat Eye Fix.



YOU MAY ONLY HAVE ONE VARIATION IN YOUR GAME AT A TIME!!!

Just place one of the three choices in your packages folder. I would suggest NOT merging these because there may be updates etc.

All variations work with two tone eyes and the regular 4 channel eyes. They are for kitten-elder cats.

Place any of these three files in your packages folder. These will conflict with other mods that change cat eye meshes, cat eye textures, and cat overlays.

Remember to clear your sim compositor cache to see the changes! Enjoy!!

If you use my eyes as a base, please just give me a quick little credit or link! Thank you!

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.

Much better looking eyes, thank you! Are you going to be doing dog and horse eyes as well? Just curious.

Edit: Just went to your blog and found dog eye replacements. Yay, thanks for those too!

Horse eyes are in the works, I've just really never seen a real life horse up close so I can't really get them looking real.. Anyways yeah dogs eyes are already done and will uploaded here soon, I just have to take fancy pictures!

Thanks a lot for these! They look amazing, and the black dots have driven me grazy for ages!

Unfortunately, they don't work in my game. Does anyone know why the eyes are so messed up? The black dots are gone after installing the fix but the eyes in game are neither EA eyes or the "local black cat" I installed. I have cleared caches and checked the files.

In CAS, the eyes appear to be "Local Black Cat" but are very, very dark.
In game, they are different and real ugly. I uploaded a pic: http://i1241.photobucket.com/albums...03/a02ad53e.jpg

Thank you for the answer, Traelia.

I'm quite sure there weren't any eyes for cats in my downloads, so I made sure by testing the game after removing the entire Mods folder and clearing the caches again. I still have those same fugly eyes but with black dots now. In CAS I have EA eyes, in game they are the same mess.

I've had problems with horse eyes from the start (show right in CAS, black holes in game) but not with cats before now. Maybe it's just my graphics card - what else could bork the eyes in a game without any cc/mods?

Anyway, these are such cute kitty eyes, too bad I can't use them. Thanks for creating anyway!

Well I can tell you that the texture you are seeing on cat eyes is not mine, nor EA's. So honestly I have no idea what is going on there..
