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.
I have been using Jawusa's castaway skin in my game for sometime now and I just love how it can spawn randomly on townies and since it's technically an official maxis skintone I though I'd attempt to make a default replacement for it.

I used Ephemera/teru_k's soft skin as it's one of my favorite default replacements for the normal maxis skins.

This doesn't function exactly like a default replacement as you'll need to replace the original file in your DL's folder. It's named the exact same as Jawusa's original file so be sure you don't get them mixed up!



Note: the fit version of the female skin barely changes and I'm pretty sure it's like that for teru's maxis replacements as well.

Happy simming!

Hey,
I'm trying to install this skin to work for Sims Castaway Stories and I can't get it to work as a default replacement for whatever reason. It does show up in game in CAS but as custom content, not the default S4 skintone, meaning that the natives in the story mode won't have your skin. This is a bummer because this is one of the few custom skintones that 1. I really like and 2. work for TCS.
Your instructions weren't very clear to me as well; what exactly is the original file I'm supposed to be replacing?
Thanks.

Sorry, but this is only for the main game.

However you could ask under the wishing tree at garden of shadows for someone to make this skin a replacement for castaway.
