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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This mod will enable most of the creatures' skin in Bodyshop and CAS. Skins included are Alien, Mannequin, Zombie, Werewolf, Plantsim, and Wilt Plantsim, all skins are available for all ages from toddler to elder.



There's 2 versions, choose only one :


CreaturesSkin.zip :
All 6 skins won't have the CC star, they'll have appropriate EP flag instead and the delete button IS disabled. However, in CAS you'll have to activate the debug mode to get them.

Mind you that when you activate the debug mode, you'll find 2 zombie skins. One is mine and the other one is Maxis'. My version is available for all ages from baby to elder while Maxis' isn't available for babies, toddlers and children. Same applies to the mannequin skins.

CreaturesSkins_CCSTAR.zip :
You won't have to activate the debug mode to select these skins, but they will have the CC star and the delete button is NOT disabled. Be careful not to delete them as you will corrupt your game by doing so.


Remember to choose just ONE, you can't have both since they will conflict with each other.




You DO need the corresponding EP for the skins to show up.


UPDATED 07/25/08

Thanks to TashaFaun and Lord Darcy for the help in fixing the naked state for the plantsim and werewolf skins. You'll want to redownload. Sorry it took me so long, in fact if it weren't for the 2 people mentioned earlier I might still haven't fix it. Sorry!


UPDATED 05/09/08

I added the infants' skins so the game won't crash when a sim with these skintones have a baby. They'll have a nice little baby with appropriate skin instead.




Additional Credits:
irenny, for requesting this mod. Actually she only requested the alien one, but I did all the skins anyway.

Awesome. I never succeed to have creatures sims in my game without using hacks.
Thank you very much!

This is really cool. Now these skins will show up a lot more in my neighbourhood! Thanks.

But one question: what's debug mode?
Test Subject
#4 Old 8th May 2008 at 8:46 PM
Exelent! does it come with the coresponding hair/ eyes? Did you also unlock the vampire skin/make up?

If you have a request please explain it thoroughly! (At least one and a half paragraphs & supply the needed pictures / meshes, or else I will throw it away without looking at it and I will not "PM" you that I will not do it.)

This is awesome!!!! I have always wanted to make alien sims from scratch but couldn't. Question: Will the sims that are created in CAS be alien or lycan etc. ?
Test Subject

Avaluna: Debug mode is boolprop testingcheatsenabled true and Ctrl-M I think to enable before CAS, and Ctrl-N to disable.

I love thes, but if I remember right the mannequin skin has no baby form and can cause game crash when they have a baby?

and if we use default replacements will they show up as replacements or maxis originals?

Yes, and most likely WILL crash. This is a really neat idea, but I wouldn't let any sims breed unless there is an infant skin. (Which would be only the alien, if memory serves.)

Click this.

Oops. I totally forgot about infants. I'm adding the infant skins with the textures pulled from the toddlers' and will have them up within a few hours.

cheeroke, it depends on how the default replacements were made. If they're simply replacing Maxis' textures, then I guess the replacements will show up. Mind you I don't have any default replacements so I can't test it myself.

Vyse, no they won't actually be a werewolf or anything, it's just the skintone.

Whatever. It's still a great idea! Who knows, maybe you can find a way to make the sims who have these skins to have characteristics of the races.

Well if you want an easy way to transform a sim to a certain creature you can use my Sim Transformer.


Anyway it's updated, please redownload, especially if you're planning on breeding sims with these skins on.

I have some screenies of the babies but it won't let me upload any new pics right now, have no idea why. It kept giving me an error "You may only attach one unique filename to each post. You need to only attach one type of file zip OR rar and not both." despite the fact that I don't have any other pics with the same name. I've triple checked, they're jpeg files and less than 150 kb, I don't know why it wouldn't work.

To be clear, the files ARE updated. It's just the new screenies of infants that will be uploaded later.

What's about Genetic? Is it like using the "orignial" alienskin in debug mode?

Thank you!
and a little question:how can I get Wilt Plantsim skintone in gameplay without downloading your skintones?

One day you're gonna wake up and realize how much you care for her--
And when that day comes she'll be waking up next to the boy who already knew.

What do you mean by werewolf CC skin? A default replacement skintones for werewolves?
Theorist
#18 Old 10th May 2008 at 6:41 PM
the werewolf texture that you unlocked, instead of using the Texture grabbing ones (that have no cc star)

Sorry about that!

Oh sorry. No, it won't. You need corresponding EP for the skins. The version that have the CC star and EP icon is actually the same, both versions pull the textures from the game files. It's just that the game handles them differently.

For some reason, if I made the skins to bear appropriate EP icon, it won't show up in CAS without activating the debug mode. That's why I offered the CC star version too since not everybody play with debug mode on. I myself prefer the ones with appropriate EP icons because I always play in debug mode.

Oh well, You couldn't just make a skin file in bodyshop then? Nah, Its ok, I'll live!

Thanks for getting the others out though!

Well, I can, but isn't it against the rules? To make a certain feature from an EP available for those without the EP? Another reason is because if I include the textures in the package file, it'll be too bloated for my liking since that means I'm duplicating the textures that already available in the game files.
Theorist
#22 Old 11th May 2008 at 2:03 PM
It probably is, Oh well!
Just on a side note, Whats the chance of unlocking the Plantsim Hair?
and also the alien & vampire eyes?
I'm feeling thats it a continuous cycle going on here!

i was wondering if the mannequin skin correctly showed a werewolf transformance seeing as it's an in-game skin and not custom.
