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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Another set of default face templates! Why yes, I am a fool, can you tell? Anyway, after hours and hours of slaving away over a hot stove...I finally present to you my second set of face templates!

Hopefully I fixed the "huge forehead" problem that people had with my first set, along with any other criticism they had. This time, I was smart and asked for opinions BEFORE I posted. Go me! However, I know I can't please everyone, so I apologize if there are some templates not to your liking. And please keep in mind that the screenshots are limited; most of the character in the faces is seen from 3/4 or profile view.

If some of the templates seem familiar, that is probably because they were some of my born-in-game sims, tweaked and made into templates! #7, for example, is the offspring of Kaylynn Langerak and one of my aliens (the PT replacement I use is Pirate McSkittles, who was created by Keely, who kindly gave me permission to use parts of her sim's likeness).

Here's a quick shot of some of faces in the game. The thumbnails below feature 3 different versions of each face: one with CC, one without, and the Maxis face that it's replacing. You'll note that these aren't based on the Maxis faces in any way - they're just sims I made and liked the look of.

All content shown on the faces is Maxis, with the exception of the eyes and skins - skins are default blends that I made from Ephermera's BJD skin, and Rensim's Circonflex skins. They're not available for download, as per Ren's policy. The eyes are Seasons Eyes by Bruno, made default by spikesminx.

ยป All the files come pre-Compressorized, so you don't have to! The Compressorizer can be found here, if you don't have it and are a CC junkie like me. :D

Don't like these faces, or want a little more variety? Here are some links to the other face templates that I know of:

ยป AllenABQ's faces
ยป AmberDiceless's faces
ยป bruna00000's faces
ยป DocDoofus's faces
ยป Lunar Eclipse's faces
ยป Nailati's faces
ยป Oepu's faces
ยป Pooklet's faces
ยป Sarakadie's faces
ยป Spookymuffin's faces
ยป Starlit's faces
ยป Terrakosmos's faces
ยป Zazazu's faces
ยป Selzi's Older faces
ยป Selzi's NEW faces
ยป My Old Faces!

Or maybe you want to make your own set? I've written a comprehensive tutorial here! If you do make more, please PM me, I'd love to link them here.
