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.
Since the skin tones update, THIS MOD NO LONGER WORKS! But don't worry, more updated content will be coming soon!

Hey there, community! Sorry that I haven't posted in awhile, but I finally made a new project, and it's a big one to say the least. Thanks to CmarNYC's Skininator tool, I bring you 54 new skintones! Sure, she made this so everyone could make custom skintones, but I would imagine not everyone knows how to use it, so I made some new skins for the non-creators on MTS. There are 14 warm and cool skintones, 16 fantasy skintones, and 10 pastel fantasy skintones. I say that it does not require GTW because the two fantasy packs are in ONE package, meaning that the same package works for both humans and aliens. But if you have GTW, you'll get 26 new skintones for aliens as well! And as said in the title, these are Maxis match, so they look exactly the same as the Maxis skintones, only in many more colors. They work for child-elder and they are all compatible with each other, and show up in correct order in CAS, so it wouldn't matter if you downloaded one package, or all of them. However, the sort order may conflict with other non default skintones, but that won't affect the actual skins. These skins are not genetic. So if you decide to use these skins for sims you're planning to make babies with, you'll just have to change the baby's skintone once they become a child, which is easy to do by using the cheat 'cas.fulleditmode.' And yes, these skins work beautifully with Cmar's skin details mod (but without it, it's complete Barbie).

Enjoy!

You seem to be the only person who's asking for this. It's very easy to do this, just download CmarNYC's Skininator, open the packages and remove the human occult tag from each skintone, and they won't show up for humans anymore. You can use these for yourself, but DO NOT reupload them. And if you need help, on the download page of the tool, Cmar has a tutorial linked on how to use it. I am not mad, it's just tedious. And by the way, if I did separate them, people wouldn't be able to use both the human and alien packages at the same time unless I went through the trouble of creating a whole new package, which would take way too long. So, I'm sorry that I can't change these for you, but you CAN change them yourself. I don't care if you change them to your liking, just don't reupload them as your own.

Thanks for reply, I really apreciate it. Sorry that I bothered you, though. I'll use the skin program to separate them for myself in that case if it's that easy And yeah, I totally won't re-upload them anywhere. I don't do stuff like that

Thank you for all the lovely fantasy shades for aliens, per your suggestion I used the skininator to remove the human flags, it was super easy.

I could make them genetic if I knew how to, I am not all that good with code, and I'm an amateur, I haven't been modding for a long time. If I knew how to make skins genetic, I would make them genetic, I'm sorry I cant help you here.

There is already a white skintone in the fantasy_pastel skintone pack, but I could make a black one as well if you would like.

Awesome, awesome mod! Skin tones are seriously lacking in game (especially more unrealistic ones) and it's nice to have some nicely made and varied skintones!
