Hi there!

As you might have guessed, this is an edit of my Asian Skintone - or better, a major overhaul. Again, it is based on Louis' bodyskin, so all credit for that goes to her and sim cribbling !!!

She allows creators to use her skins and edit them - and I can not thank her enough for that policy!!!

-----------------------------------

I was asked about the nose of the original Asian Skintone many times - some said it was cute, others found it weird, since it did not look very asian to them. I have to admit: I made that nose because I thought it was pretty, period. I have a thing for cute little noses.
With this edit, I wanted to make the skin a little softer around the edges, a little more glowy and realistic. The face is based on actual photos and was edited many times.

The eyes are mostly the same, but the skin got a new nose and new lips, which I really love.

Here you go:









For close-ups of the "light" and the "pale" version, click on the thumbnails.

As you can see, it's got the four basic colors for now. These textures are a lot more difficult to recolor then the old version, so I left it at that. I am open for requests, but be aware that exotic colors like a green alien version are not very likely to come out of this.

And since I am not creative or witty enough to come up with catchy names for my skins, these will simply be called "2", as in "pale 2". Clever me, yo.


Happy simming!

Hi... just wanted to say thank you. Those skintones are really great. Now, to my question... is there any way that you will do default replacements of those? Because I'm looking for some default asian skins, for my asian neighborhood, but no luck yet. And those would be just perfect.

Oh wow... I have never made defaults before - my last set was made up as defaults by a good friend of mine. So I would either have to ask her to do it again or I have to read my way through tutorials @_@... We'll see ^_^

thank you for the new version, seems like I'm always using your other set alot lately. The lips texture, I don't know why but I just love that look! sometimes glossylips aren't always what I'm looking for when I want a natural sim. thanks again love these just as much as the orginals, great job!

Hi chakaru! Nice work! I was wondering, any chance of having default versions of these? If so, I would like to request that the dark be also available as the tan version. I like it a lot and I would like to use it as my default tan (#3)!

These are absolutely wonderful! Thank you! When I try to make my self-sim I usually get so frustrated that all my make-up and custom skin options look so caucasian in the shading and especially the assumed double-eyelid. Thanks again! Great skins!

The skins are absolutely beautiful... thank you for making them! I have just one question, though.. I love the outfit on the 'pale' model and didn't find it on peggysims or sims 2 heaven.. so if it's yours, could you please upload it?

Love the skintones, but unforunately I can't download the "light 2 by chakaru.zip" without getting an invalid archive message.

Here you'll find more downloads by me; GoddessByline's SimPage and N99

Thank you, they look fantastic

It's the air that I breathe
it's my fall at your feet
it is my song
I sing when you are gone

All my hopes and my fears,
in this moment are clear
you are the one

Love it, thanks. I have so many skin tones now on my sims 2 though, it's ridiculous. I am sure half of them are Asian skin tones too XD

As of the time I'm writing this, downloads are offline for maintenance. So I can't download just yet, but I will recommend these files on my site to anyone wishing to download my Milp set.

You can find me on the Sims 4 Gallery as DozerfleetProd. If you have XBox One or PS4, please test out my creations, and let me know if / how well they work on consoles.
