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.
Some time ago, Tamo released lovely Cat Eye glasses for TS3. As I prefer playing The Sims 2 I have converted them. Thanks so much to Tamo for her open policy, this wouldn't have been possible without her hard work and her file-share friendly policy.


These glasses work from children to elder, but for females only. There are two different meshes as you can see: basic and crystal (half crystal). The two meshes are slightly different, I tried to make them look exactly the same but couldn't. However this is only noticeable if you switch from one to another in Bodyshop or CAS.

Important:
Considering that they are accessories, maybe the polycount is a little high. Most computers should handle this, but if you have an old computer use these with caution.

Description:
- Requires No EP.
- New Mesh. You have to download Mesh and Recolor.
- For females only. From child to elder.
- Categorized as Eyeglasses(accessory)
- All files compressed have proper tooltips and have been compressed.

Polygon Counts:
Faces 1040, vertices 952.
Faces 1048, vertices 963.

Additional Credits:
Tamo for her open policy and for the original files.
CuriousB for extracting the meshes and textures from the TS3 files.
Nouk for the hairstyles.
Pooklet for the color actions and textures, used on all these hairs.
Pooklet for the skins.
Nilou for the eyes.

Recolors:
Looking for a Rainbow by CuriousB.
Cat Eyes recolors by Snapun.
