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.

You may need to have your graphics set to "high" to see these effects in game.


I don't know about you, but I find that the base set of glasses that shipped with the Sims a bit flat and cartoony, especially when viewed next to some of the lovely skintones and hair textures out there. These are destined to form a default replacement pack at some vague point in the future, but I wanted to make the individual non-default versions available to Sim makers while I do that

For the most part, I just adjusted the reflectivity of these glasses to seem more glasses-like. The lenses are about as reflective as glass (it's more noticeable on dark lenses), the plastic frames are slightly glossy, and the metal frames are shiny. I also included one pair of "mirrored" shades.

I only recolored 2 in addition to making them reflective, since they were just so horrid. I made the blue and grey wraparounds into chrome wraparounds with mirrored shades, and I made the green and gold aviator shades a more sober black with amber lenses.

Also, the shots of some of the clear-lensed glasses don't show much reflectivity in the comparison shots (you can see highlights on the frames, though). This is due to the angle of the glasses on the Sims' face in relation to the light source in CAS. Please see the in-game shots for a better idea of how reflective the clear lenses are.
