UPDATE 11 AUGUST 2012: I've made a major overhaul to this upload, adding improvements to the original items such as recolourability and removing the need for the player to have to set all the colours of each eye to white first before using it, as was the 'old way' of using contacts. I've also added one completely new eye. If you've downloaded the old versions of these and would like the 'new improved' versions, please re-download!

Thanks to Wintermuteai1's great tutorial (http://modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=358457 ) and the research done by Xanathon (http://www.modthesims.info/showthre...#startcomments), we can now have non-default eyes as contacts cloned from the Costume Makeup item. So I had to rush right off and make some Sci-Fi style ones for myself, and I hope you'll find these useful for your own Sci-Fi or fantasy creations too.

They are for both genders and all ages, Toddler to Elder. They are all found in the Costume Makeup section in CAS, and each will have a thumbnail picture showing which eye it is.

This set consists of:

1. Eyes that are one solid colour. My old version came as three separate package files, white, black and red. The new version is one file with three presets for white, black, and red. The white preset is fully recolourable, so your sim can have solid colour eyes of any colour (or pattern) you like, or you can choose one of the other two presets to just instantly give your sim solid black eyes (such as my alien guy below) or red eyes without having to fiddle with CaST settings.

2. Lizard eyes. Good for humanoid lizardmen and other scaly creatures, such as my Lounge Lizard guy below (snout face made, although not very successfully, with the aid of a facial slider range multiplier). These are by default a natural gold-ish colour, not 100% recolourable but can be tinted in CAS to achieve other colours.



Lizard eyes, Black Eyes, Red Eyes, White Eyes



3. Cyber Camera Eyes, a dramatic-looking Sci-Fi eye consisting of photorealistic camera lens pupils/irises on a laser red sclera. Great for cyborgs, robots, aliens, and similar scary non-humans. These are preset as depicted below and not really recolourable, although they can be over-tinted a bit.



4. Solid Eyes With 2 Recolourable Areas. These are similar to the Solid Eyes but have two separate recolour areas, a large iris/pupil area and a background. They give you a similar effect to the Cyborg Eye mesh I've uploaded here, but they affect both eyes and they colour the sim's own eye rather than protruding like my Cyborg Eye does. The pic below includes depictions on how to colour the two eye areas in CaST:




Thank you for looking, hope you'll find these useful for your Sci Fi sims!



INSTALLATION:

All four eyes are in one zip file together. Just unzip the zip file and copy the .package file(s) of your choice to your Mods\Packages folder. Each eye is in its own separate package, so you can choose whether to install all of them or just one or two.

If you don't have a Mods\Packages folder and/or don't know how to install .package files, please see full instructions here: http://www.modthesims.info/wiki.php...g_Package_Files


All eyes were made with CAS Texture Unitool.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

TS3 Base Game

You need to be a Registered Member to be able to download from MTS. Registration allows you to thank and leave comments for the creators, see your download history, participate in the discussions and much more!

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
