This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
IMPORTANT NOTE
Some of the images here are using CC besides the ones included in this mod. Below is a list of all the CC I used:
Zaneida's Tail of a Lizard
RemusSirion's Dragon Eyes
RemusSirion's Demon Claws Pyxis's Intergalactic-Supernatural Overlays
CmarNYC's No Ears Mod

This mod adds all the things you need to create a Reptilian. Three files are included, a body preset, an eye preset (which alters the entire head shape), and teeth to fit into the new mouth shape. The design was based off a mix of dromaeosaurid dinosaurs and Komodo dragons.

Body Preset


The body preset is available for all genders, occults, and ages child through elder and can be found in the body preset menu. Note that the image shown in the menu has an issue and displays the female body for all genders and ages. Don't know why it's doing that, I tried 3 times to set a custom icon. In any case, just the image is wrong, your Sim will still get the appropriate body type.


Eye Preset

The new head can be found under the eye presets and appears as an image showing a Reptilian in the menu. It's available for all genders, occults, and ages child through elder. Note that the shape of the snout is very dependent on the shape of the nose, some of the nose presets end up making it look somewhat like Jar Jar Binks from Star Wars. Also with just this mod your Sim will still have ears, use the No Ears Mod I linked above to remove them.

Teeth
Also included are some custom teeth that are shaped to fit the new mouth. These are available for all genders, occults, and ages teen through elder. They are NOT included for children. They can be found in the tooth menu and appear as an image showing a Reptilian.


Compatibility
The body and eye presets should be compatible with just the base game. I believe the teeth should be as well, but I built them by replacing some of the mermaid teeth in Island Living, so you might need that expansion pack (this has not been tested).

Known Issues
  1. Since the head is heavily distorted from the original, the eyes will sometimes pop slightly out of their sockets. Using the Dragon Eyes CC I linked above can help hide this a bit.
  2. The teeth will sometimes clip out of the front of the mouth. Just adjust the mouth to fix this.
  3. The inside of the mouth of the child head has not stretched to fill in the whole snout, so you'll see a hole when they open their mouths.
  4. As stated above, the icon for the body shows the female preview for all ages and genders. The body itself is fine though.

Polygon Counts:
Head- 2896
Teeth- 2352
Child Body- 4322
Female Body- 4526
Male Body- 4322

I have to say, this is pretty amazing and awesome.

Btw, the body preset icon shows up fine in my game. Maybe you just need to delete your localthumbcache.package.

Very nice. I see this, and I immediately have a hankering to create a new Dragonsim occult trait and buff system, with a main feature of the trait making them constantly cough up fire. (As seen when eating hot curry or dragon ice cream.) Yeah, that could be fun!

These are great.

Only the teeth show for me, and not the lizard's mouth, snout or whatever you call it.

Make sure you have all 3 files in your mods folder, also make sure you're looking in the eye presets for the head morph.

My results with this mod have been........................ interesting, to say the least.
(didn't modify anything except the eyes, which wouldn't stop goldfish-ing out of his head, so I tried to make them smaller, with limited success. The Darth Maul horns are from another mod, which doesn't play nice with this preset, which is a shame.)

Loving it. And here I was, thinking the 20s Altered Judo Iguanas in Camelorum Adventures would never look reptilian enough.

I just made a Morrowind "family" a few months back with a Dunmer slave owner and his Khajiit and Argonian slaves, I've been waiting for something like this to make my Argonian better

This is great! Just one problem, I noticed that when I randomized my vampire Sim in CAS, it came up with the reptilian teeth, even though it's not a reptilian. I don't want townies walking around with the teeth; can you fix that?

Other then what others have already said, I'm actually really happy with this set of CC, I've noticed that the head preset on Alien Form doesn't have the inside of the mouth extended. Plus would it be possible to have a version of the Body Preset to possibly include the individual toes (either Five to match the sims hands, or perhaps just for the ease of it the three toes), because the preset looks strange with shoes (plus i think it probably wouldn't work with certain outfits, like the Male Final Fantasy outfit that was patched in, I personally like that outfit for my Vampire Hunter Sims.

I ended up slapping the teeth into S4S and importing the texture off a different set of sharp teeth cc, now it works amazingly. Only thing is the mouth looks transparent from the inside, but what can you do? Works great with dragon skin overlays for a dinosaur look!

Just to give the creator a quick heads up, the teeth are showing up on random Townies in Batuu, plus the teeth having a hole on the lower jaw is still happening for me.
