Terms of use for these textures/recolors: These files may be redistributed via shared sims, so long as those sims are available in the free section of any site, and I am credited with a link back to my profile on this site. You may not charge money or a membership fee for my files: this includes "donation files" on an otherwise free site, and sites where my files would only periodically be free.

These files may also be shared via Neighborhood 99, so long as I am properly credited.

You may recolor these files or use them to make default replacement sets so long as your derivative works are only posted or shared on free sites as described in the preceding paragraphs.

Cloning the contacts will export the same binning and layering information, so I'd really prefer if you only cloned these contacts for the purpose of making contacts. However, I'm not going to hold anyone to that since some of you are using Macs and therefore can't use SimPE.

In this post:
* 53 new eyes (binned and townie-friendly) All 53 eye color swatches can be viewed at my photobucket:
* 53 layerable, multi-selectable contacts for all ages
* new default set
* Excel spreadsheet with descriptions as well as SimPE genetics information to help you keep track of it all and/or update your Sims' eye color.
* 11 completely new eye colors, in addition to the revised 42 colors from my previous set.

Not in this post: a sclera for fixing my old eyes without messing around in SimPE.

About the eyes:

I know, 53 colors is a lot. I made this many so I would have more than one option for the most common colors. The unnaturally colored eyes have been kept toned down, so they will at least look plausible. The light eyes have a new iris template, for a more natural look. I also fiddled with all the irises individually, for less iris pattern uniformity. Finally - and this is the big thing - these eyes come with a new sclera that animates well. No more having your sims turn their eyes inside out when they look to the side!

(Does anyone care that these are handpainted? I've always assumed not, but maybe some of you do care. Anyway.)

All eyes are binned and townie-friendly. If you do not like these features, please try the contacts. Binning information is on the spreadsheet! Or you can let it be a surprise.


About the contacts:

Contacts are multiselectable blushes. They layer at 85 (above face masks), and are all binned together, which means you can mix them with other blushes that aren't my contacts.
