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.
I hadn't planned on posting this yet, mostly because I wasn't sure who'd be interested, but then SynapticSim came out with the Teen Titans and that pretty much sealed the deal for me.

Soon after I first started fooling around in Body Shop, I became frustrated with the inability to color a sim's eyes differently. So I made this. Unfortunately, it doesn't fit the eye perfectly, but it's pretty close, and it blinks and such just like the regular eye. Recoloring is easy. Just take any eye color, reduce the image's size by 50%, and save it over the color file.

The color included in this pack is the same as SynapticSim's Cyborg, so all you have to do is change his eye color to brown and stick this on him, and viola!

It can be worn with other accessories, and will stay on all the time, no matter the outfit (not so sure about naked, though).

Feel free to recolor. I couldn't think of any use besides Cyborg for this at first, but Syn did, so I'm sure somebody else can too.

I think this is a very awesome idea. There are so many characters I'd like to make that have odd eyes. I just wanted to know...did you make this using the option from Pets to choose cats and dogs eye colours individually? Cause for some time now I've been thinking "What if you just took that and made it available for the human create-a-sim?"

I made this two years ago, so, no.

Come hang out with me and SynapticSim at The Lair

Oh wow, I've been looking for something like this. Thank you so much!

And it's a lot easier to recolor when you realize that this is an accessory, not a genetic eye color... :-|

This is an awesome mesh. =) I've been wondering when someone would get around to making one of these for various fandoms, and I recently decided to see if the meshes for Naruto were updated--and lo, Kakashi had the right eyecolors! Your mesh is awesome, and is going to more-than-likely be reused and loved by many for a long time. Thank you!

The only thing I can think of that might cause the issue is if the head has been lowered too far? Or if the eyes are oddly shaped, perhaps. I'm not a creator myself, but those are the only things I can think of.

And according to the one person, it seems to be a height issue--teenagers are shorter than adults, so that might be why the mesh doesn't fit right. If it doesn't happen in a lot of people's games, that might have possibly been an issue addressed in some patch or expansion down the line.

As for the person who has the mesh appear behind their normal eye, I suspect they simply have the other eye too far forward on their character's face. Again, as I said, however--I'm not a mesh artist, or skinner, or anything... but approaching it from a computer science prospective, that's what I'd suspect is the issue.

I could always test it out this weekend, after all my exams are done this week.

Anyways, it's a great mesh either way! Again, thanks. =)

I wish you can do it for the other eye too
