Hey : )

This time i converted my "most popular" eyeset for ts2. Because many people dont want to change their default replacements each time they see a new one they like to have (i would`nt do it too ) i made these eyes as contacts with 3 color channels (the eyeball, the outer iris and the center of the iris)

If you have already downloaded the eyes and they dont show up ingame, please redownload!




Eye Type: Contacts
Eye Style: Human Alien Fantasy Realistic

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.

Thank you so much for making these, and for making them contacts instead of replacements :D
I missed these, they were so gorgeous in TS2.

I'd love these as replacements, actually. >.< Haha, I'm the odd one out. I love these, they are beautiful. I dont think I'd ever change them if I had these as my defaults. Going to download anyhow (: x

These are going straight in my Fave Downloads =) Thanks!

There used to be a tree, Where we took our pretty things, We'd hook them by a thread, Golden egg lipstick and feathers, And watch the light shine through, I'm afraid to forget you, I am remembering you, You were sparkling - My brightest diamond

I feel the same way. All the eyesets Shady makes are gorgeous, but I can understand if it's a lot of effort to make defaults of everything, knowing how often most people change them. Maybe someone else can convert them for Shady?
Still, these are beautiful. Bravo!

Yeah same here >< Right now I got another default she made and they're great too, going to get these too so self made sims are pretty and EAxis ones are less ugly with the defaults :D

Gorgeous! :D

Edit: I'd use them for defaults, too, but the feature of these are that they're multi-colored, so they wouldn't be quite so versatile as defaults.

I've downloaded and installed these eyes...but they didn't show up in custom makeup. Did I do something wrong or are they found somewhere else?

Gorgeous! Simply gorgeous! The one thing I didn't like about my Simmies this go round was their eyes. Everything else about TS3 sims I thought was beautiful, except for their eyes, which were lifeless and dull. Well, dull no more! :D

Having them as contacts is nice, but I too would like to see these as default replacements. Although I understand if you can't do that, having three channels and all.
