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.
*EDIT* As of 2nd Nov, the texture and genetics are now working properly! Please re-download if you had problems with this before.

*EDIT 2* As of 7th Nov, you can also download a matching default replacement or unlocked alien skin by me, here. And if you care for even more variety, you can also complete your feathers/maxis skin collection with birth marks, more supernaturals and more here on xmathyx's tumblr!

I love using these skintones by xmathyx in my game. They're the maxis defaults, but with the nostrils and mouth altered. So I decided to create an even darker skintone that matches this set!

The basis for this skin was an extra-dark skintone included by Maxis in The Sims Castaway Stories, which was uploaded by Jawusa. I edited the nostrils and mouth, plus added nipples on all the female bodies to make it consistent with the skins from xmathyx.

Genetically, this skin is 1 step darker than the darkest maxis skin (S4). So if a sim with this skin (essentially S5) and a sim with the lightest maxis skin (S1) had a child, the child could have the lightest skintone (S1), the second lightest skintone (S2), the tan skintone (S3), the dark skintone (S4) or this skintone. In essence, it should work just like you'd expect it to in real life!

It is also townified, so townies can spawn with this skin.

Works for all ages and genders.

For comparison purposes, I've included this picture of what this skin looks like next to the maxis dark skintone (S4).


PS. As always, my sim models wear these brows and these eyes. Hair can be found here and here.
