I have created a DEFAULT version of my Maxis Matching eyes.

The non default eyes can be found here:

Here you see the difference between MAXIS eyes and my DEFAULTS:

The package overrides all 5 original MAXIS colors. To get the old ones back, just remove my package from you Downloads folder. You can't have more than one set of default eyes at the same time in your game.

Eye Type: Default
Eye Style: Maxis-Match

Xxo Marlie oxX, there are non-default ones - you can find them on her profile.

Oepu - thanks so much! I don't particularly like Maxis eyes, but other defaults looked so human-like, and I like the cartoon nature of Sims. So thank-you.

I never thought I would use default eyes, because I want my game too be really Maxisy, if you know what I mean.
But a couple days back I desided that the original Maxis eyes aren't nice anymore.
They look so faded and un-lively.

These are just perfect for my game. Thank you Oepu!

I agree with all the other people, these are perfect. The original Maxis-eyes should've looked like this.

I was wondering though, is there any chance of you creating a vampire-version too? My vampires feel so ugly.

Finally! No more fake Maxis eyes, but not *too* realistic. love them. =]
#12 Old 15th Mar 2008 at 6:10 PM
I love these! The main problem with downloading defaults is having ugly rims around your Sims eyes if the defaults eyes are smaller than the maxis ones. Finally this won't happen anymore!

i love these - i always think custom eyes look nice til i get them in my sims, i dont' like a lot of custom skins out there so realistic eyes just look wrong in maxis skins.

but having had the non-default of these in my game for a couple of days to see if i like them - i'm DEFINITELY getting them as defaults - they just add a little bit of life to the eyes whilst still looking like sims.

great job and thank you!

next task is to download all your maxis match clothes lol - i don't think there's any i don't like.

These are gorgeous! I followed a link to these because of a person named Cindyanne1 on I had been following her legacies and challenges on her journal, and she linked to these eyes. I think I'll like them a lot better than the regular, old, very blah inducing MAXIS eyes. ;D

Very nice. After months of playing the game with realistic replacement eyes and skintones, I got tired of the minor problems those presented..problems with the scalp texture and some hairstyles, problems with eye replacements having black around the textures etc. So I switched back to the more functional maxis default skintones, but I've always hated the way the eyes look so boring and plain. These present a much needed subtle improvement to their look while still keeping with the same Maxis vibe. Thank you!

Does anyone know any supernatural eye defaults that could match these?
