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.
Update: Thanks to this post I have now added a replacement with vines for those who missed them about the others

Hi guys

People have been asking for other replacement options for the PlantSim, and one or two (to my knowledge) have wanted them to be Louis/SimCribbling skins... including me, since I use them everywhere else. So I decided to have a go at recolouring them myself.

If you're expecting added planty textures like the Maxis skin or Enayla's work you'll be disappointed - I'm just not talented enough to pull it off (although I did try, didn't work out too well though). Feel free to add them yourselves if you want, but for now it's just a simple recolour of her yellow-green alien skin. Still it works, at least I think so I've included the normal and wilt colours, although I look after them too well, so if any of you can get them wilted and voice your opinions on the colouring that'd be great

Special thanks go to PinStruck for the eyes (and advice on the colouring), IAmTheRad for the original replacement package and of course Louis herself for her great skins and generous recolouring policy :D

Enjoy!

You are my hero. There was no way I was letting Plantsims into my game with the Maxis skin!

I don't know where the requests should go... I only found a request-area for self-sims. Thanks for making this skin, but may I request if you could make Enayla's Pixie ANOMALY skin as default for plantsims aswell? I think it would look so good on them! It can be found from: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=186446

I'm always pleased to see a new Louis-matching default, since I like having my defaults match each other, and these are my favorite Louis-matching plant defaults -- so nice and green! Would you perhaps be willing to make an all-ages non-default version of the same skintone also, though? Would be nice to have that as an option in addition to the real Plantsims.

Thanks! So you want this as a non-default version? I'll give it a go, not promising when though (I'm a writer and my imagination's been driving me crazy lately )

This is very pretty, Sadie. I've been looking for a plantsim default - this one is very smooth and rich. It just might be the one I use.
