Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I've grown tired of EA's sickness spots and decided to make some default replacements. These will replace the checkboxes that you can fill in for each of the two categories in CAS - 2 for freckles, 2 for moles. I've simply tried to make them as realistic as possible, and I believe I succeeded. It really couldn't get any worse, could it? EA's sharp chickenpox freckles, haha.

Please give me some feedback as this is my second upload!

The moles is actually a bit see-through, so if the skin is too dark for them it will not be as pink and brightish-looking as the original does - also it gives that brown realistic coloring on beige skin. Also the type 2 mole is specifically made to look like Merilyn Monroes famous beauty mark.

Made with game version 1.50

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
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.

These are simply beautiful! I never liked the default freckles. What's the point of freckles if you can't even see them??
