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.
Introducing the MoonFruit Skinblend! I kind of started this on a whim since I couldn't find a skinblend I was 100% happy with. It was an ordeal, but I think I'm happy with the end result.

I basically wanted something close to maxis-match, but with a body shading style more similar to what we have in The Sims 4 or some of the more semi-realistic skins out there, as well as more distinct fitness textures.


This skinblend comes with the 5 default shades (s1-4 + alien) and 5 custom shades (two light shades, two dark shades, sims 4 blue, and genie). The custom shades aren't geneticized or townified since I'm still a bit new to that, and I figure people might want to configure their own values anyways.

I've also made replacements for the eyes plus an extra alien eye texture with human colored scleras.

(Sorry, no werewolf skins yet . Painting these alone was quite a bit of work and I'm just not in the mood to paint fur rn, haha.)

Also be sure to check the README, since there?s two different versions of the Zombie skin depending on what EPs you have.

I also recommend getting Argon's Skin Fix so Alien and Zombie skins update properly at different fitness levels.

falkii, squeamishsims, and alfred askew (Referenced the iris size + alfred?s sclera positions from lilith's beetle eyes 4t2 conversion)

I've been using these for a while now (got them from your links on Reddit) and they're amazing. They look even better than the previews when they're in game. If anyone is thinking about downloading these, get them!

Do you think you'll make more skins someday?

My current favorite default skin! But I do prefer them being paired with these eyes here https://antoninko.tumblr.com/post/6...-3t2-conversion cos it makes my sims look extra gorgeous. Keep it up!

It's not off the table, but this was already a pretty big undertaking so probably not in the near future, haha.

These look wonderful. I have never used default skin replacements (just custom alternatives) since I like a Maxis Match CC game, but I'm going to try these out and see how I like them in game.

Thanks for the hard work on this, I'm sure this was very time consuming!

Hi, I have a problem with the third skin default. With that skin, my Sims' hair turns white and lettered. Do you have any idea how I can fix it? It only happens with that skin tone.

FAVORITE SKINS EVER!! So smooth and simple. I've used the same skin for 7 years and I've never found another that I loved so much... well this is it!!! Thank you so much!! I'm super stoked for when the werewolf skins come out. Do you think you'll do different werewolf skintones? Grey, black, brown, red, blond, as custom skins?

Hey, love the moon fruit skins and eyes. I do hope you'll see this (putting this in your tumblr ask box too just in case) but the male elder skins for CC shades 2 and 3 have the wrong textures (seem to be the AM textures) but on the normal body type only (fat and fit state appears to be fine)

Sorry I forgot to reply but I noticed one of the CC shades issues the other day. Thanks for pointing out the other one for me. Working on fixing it when I got time.

I tend to have cycles of deep focus on projects followed by burnout, or other responsibilities derailing things, haha. I get around to continuing things eventually.

Hi Blue! Thanks for sharing these amazing default skintones with us. They're probably the best Maxis-match defaults I've ever seen for Sims 2. I saw where you may do werewolf skins in the future. If you do, that will be amazing. When do you finally get around to making them, do you plan on creating a default replacement for bigfoot as well? Another question I have is for the Good Witch default overlays. Do you have one planned for good witches in the works? Once again, wonderful job on these! Definitely can't wait to see what you end up putting out in the future.
