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.
Many thanks to Louis of SimCribbling for the texture and heidilarking here for the recolor of it. All I did was make it into a default replacement for the alien skin. I think heidi did a gorgeous recolor and I hope you all enjoy your lovely purple aliens!
Thanks to Genensims for the SimPE tutorial.

Lovely! Thanks for making this; I love purple aliens.

I made some mods for The Sims 1 -- yes, The Sims ONE :-) -- which you can find at

I will try this out. I hope it doesn't cause any errors at all. I am already having object errors for actions popping up. I am also missing object recolors from my game I think was caused from custom skintones. I will get rid of those and use this.

I've tested it yesterday and here are my results: When you age the adult to a teen with the alien eyes, the alien eyes revert to another pair of eyes; But when you age them to someone else (AKA Elder, Child, Toddler), Untested upon YA, they work fine. Can you work the fix? I will myself continue using it because I have a downloaded piece in full face make-up to use for that. But for your other downloaders, I doubt they all have what I have. So there's my report. And BTW Maxis origionally had the missing eyes of Alien in Toddler. I am so glad that it's only in the teens.

Okalani, I think that's an EA bug (or perhaps a set of custom alien eyes you're already using?), I think using replacement alien eyes should fix it at any rate. It is not caused by my skin, as I've heard of people having this problem without any default replacements.

Amy Rose, I know there is a set of purple swirl eyes at Laverwinkle Sims (I used to use their lavender alien skintone before I made this one), but if you have a specific request for matching eyes, feel free to PM me and I'll look up the creator's TOS.

is it barbie safe?

my personal life can be supported by veiwing this video: and others on my youtube page. I believe there's a few building tutorials there aswell. I create rather sporadically, so excuse me if I'm gone from this website for months or years at a time.

Right, years later I realize, "hey, maybe I got comments on this...."

No idea if this skin has female nipples or not (it probably does) but as this is MTS and not Sexy Sims, there is definitely no genitalia.

As for Annyway having a normal skinned baby, sometimes alien offspring get their skintone from the non-alien parent. This is much more likely if the non-alien parent has non-genetic custom skin.

I'm sure everyone's figured this stuff out on their own four years ago, sorry I never checked back.
