Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
hello

I'm coming with new custom eyes. There are 2 styles, one is looking darker and shiny, the other is even lighter and less shiny. You can change 3 color levels. The reflection, the iris outer corner and the center of the iris. Both styles have a realistic eyeball texture too. As always handdrawn and made with much love lol
(You can change them in the mirror under custom makeup)

Note: When the contacts dont look like the preview pictures i made, maybe you still have the EA Default eye mask. That's the reason why the EA Eyes appear under the contacts. A Face Fix Overlay may help you. I made such a Face Fix, you can find it here

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.

Once again, your eyes are the greatest, (I use only yours in my game, even for Sims 2!) It would be great if those new one could come as default eyes.
Anyway, thank you very much for your brillant creations!!

I'm so irritated, I want to use these eyes so badly, and yet for some strange reason they won't show up in game!

Oops. Pressed enter prematurely. I was going to add that they are in the correct spot, because every other one of my .package files work, so I can't understand why they aren't working for me. I may just have to download them again and see if they'll work this time.

Is it possible that these contacts of yours adjust to the default eye-size?

I use V2, and for some reason, it's slightly bigger than what they look like in your preview and on some other people's sims. In my case, it's almost if not as big as EA default eyes (I use Aikea Guinea's first default replacement eyes, which is about as big as EA's).

If that's the case, then I'm wondering how in the world you do that XD. If not, then I really wonder why it's bigger. If you want, I can provide screenshots.

By the way, those eyes are really gorgeous. I think they are among my favorites, especially V2!

Edit: I know why it looks bigger now. Somehow your contacts are a bit transparent so we actually see the default eyes they are covering. Because of this, event he normal eye color will affect the contacts directly (If the eyes are green, then the contacts will have a shade of green even if you make it grey).

Is there any way to fix this, or was it purposely intended?

you should download a face fix overlay to get rid of this problem. Under my Uploads at my profile page, you can find one, by clicking at my "matt skintone defaults".Just download it and put it in the mods/packages folder like all other dl's.
