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.
This is a non-replacement skin set intended to make it easier to create Asian-looking sims.

This not a default replacement. It creates one to four new skintone sliders in CAS. It affects faces only - the game default skins or your current default replacements will be used for bodies.

The difference is subtle, and affects mainly the eyelids. It's best used in combination with the game facial sliders, or you may not notice much change. Raising the eyebrows, bringing the eye sockets forward, and playing with the eye socket height should help get the appearance you want.

There's a blotchiness around the temples and cheekbones in CAS that doesn't appear in the game, at least not in mine.

Installation and Use:
You MUST put the 'base' package in your Mods\Packages folder - it contains the basic skin files and the individual skintones won't work without it. Then add your choice of the skintone packages: three of them are the game skin colors and one is my own 'light olive' color. Each skintone package you add will show as an extra slider in CAS with identifying text in the slider background.

To modify CAS to easily use the added skintones, grab Rez Delnava's CAS UI mod here: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=389680

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.
