This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
These are "Wayfarer"-like new glasses.
They are almost same shape as my Buddy Holly-ish glasses for TS2.
But I re-created this mesh and texture for new TS3-era. Totally brand-new And better. Let's rock!


Rim, Frame, Trim (Plumb bob) are CAST-able.
Tortoiseshell is a overlaid texture (not a pattern). You can change base colors (pattern).


Description:
- for both genders. from child to elder.
- found in Accessory > Eyeglasses
- category : Clear Lens; ALL except Naked / Dark Shades; ALL except Sleepwear and Naked.
- compatibility : Base Game (as far as we know). My game version is 3.1.7.x ( BG + WA + HELS)

Polygon Counts:

- LOD 1 : 531 Polys / 553 Vertices
- LOD 2 : 272 Polys / 456 Vertices

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.

I've got kind of a dumb question. When I open these in CTU, only the box for Child is marked, but you said these are supposed to be for Child through Elder. Is there some reason only the Child box is marked but not the others? Anyone?

It's not a dumb question. My files contain 3 separate packages. These are for; 1) unisex child, 2) teen to elder male 3) teen to elder female. I brought these three files together to one package by using s3pe. Because those files have shared the texture ( I don't want duplicated useless texture). I think this is why CTU displayed only children's info.
So if you want to change something, you need original separate files. Visit my new blog. I uploaded original separate files. http://tamo.dreamwidth.org/2872.html (Non-MTS)
