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.
HelloOoOo my friends! I’m so excited because I finally finished my skin project! Yes!
I have a large number of skin tones for you!

You can see 6 degrees of darkness in my creation, now I’m going to explain about the .rar files:
Set 0: as you see in the images, this set is the lightest, it contains only one color.
Set 1: darker than set 0, contains 3 colors in one darkness.
Set 2: darker than set 1, contains 3 colors in one darkness.
Set 3: darker than set 2, contains 3 colors in one darkness.
Set 4: darker than set 3, contains 3 colors in one darkness.
Set 5: the darkest skins in my creation, contains 2 colors in one darkness.
But you see the files having + hair! The difference between these sets and other sets are to contain male body hair for teen to elder, as you see, the teen body hair is less than adults and elders. Also the hair on set 0 is less and on set 4 is more than others. I didn’t create male body hair for the set 5, because it’s very dark!


You can also see nail polish on female nails! I can’t live without it! So I designed nail polish for female teens, adults and elders!
I also designed nipples for TF, AF and EF.

For the bodies, I just changed maxis texture by Photoshop, even the male body hair is my drawing! I don’t like shiny and sleek skins, so I tried to design smooth skins. Unlike maxis skins, my elder skins are not lighter than adults.

For the nose and ears, I used a very cute blush @ TSR:

In the images, there is no makeup on my models faces.

Please notice that you can only have ONE of default replacements (with or without body hair) for each tone in your download folder.

If since using default replacement skins, you see freaky baby skins, keep calm and read this.

I think you can create your new world of all nations now! From north to south and east to west!
I just hope you will like my this creation and if so, please let me know by your comments or clicking the thanks button! :*

You are free to use my skin colors in your creations, but please give the credit.
Please don’t upload it as yours! Thank you all :*

Very nice skins. Good to know I'm not the only person turned off by the "shiny" (plastic!) look that so many other people seem to like in their game!

I am curious about your "Asian" female model (fourth picture, I think) specifically her eyes: How did you manage to get them to look so nicely Asian? I am having trouble making my "Asian" Sims have appropriately Asian-shaped eyes, so am wondering what I am doing wrong.

Again, these are very nice skins & I am glad you decided to share them.

Thanks Zirconia Wolf! I'm glad you liked my creation
For the Asian face I used bodyshop, if after using it, you still have troubles, let me know, so I will show you the way!
(The Sims 2 is not installed on this PC I'm working with now, so I can't help you right now! Sorry. But I'm waiting for your reply.)

Thank you very much. I was going to try to create skins myself, but while trying to find a good tutorial on google I found the link to the skin downlaods on google. Yours was the first one I clicked on. I liked the way they looked, so I snagged em. I just downloaded them, now I am preparing to install them. Again, thanks. Now I don't have to worry about making any just yet, not until I get into human aliens, anyway, lol.

Thanks Mina for these beautiful skin tones; much appreciated. One thing I wanted to alert you of . . . since using the default replacement files (and only the default replacements) I've been getting very odd looking babies/newborns (please see the top picture on this page: http://modthesims.info/wiki.php?tit...by_Face_Problem ). It was suggested on that page to alert creators of this issue, so I'm doing so. Just so you know, when the babies age up to toddlers, they look fine and this issue only is a problem during the Baby stage of life. In the event that it matters, I'm using The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection.

These are beautiful. I especially love that there different hues for each specific tone, pinkish, tannish and olive. Perfect. I was wondering if there would be a pale pinkish skintone? The current one is tannish, and while I will lovingly abuse that color too, there's a specific sim in my game that has very pinkish pale skin.

Oh, and thank you so much for the hairy skintones. I love my guy sims having arm hair.
