Multifoiled - Smaller Default Eyes with Subtle Color Variations

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

Green overlay example.

These default replacement eyes have a smaller iris and pupil than the EA ones (though not as small as the set HP did), with a subtle variation in color that shows up quite well on paler eye colors and adds a touch of depth in darker colors.

Because of the way eyes work in TS3, I've had to change the facial overlay. This means that if you're using a default skintone that also changes the facial overlay, these probably won't work right. As an additional 'bonus,' since I did these for my personal use originally, they also come with new eye whites and teeth.


An example of the eyes with a brown overlay. The subtle color differences aren't very noticeable in this example.


An example of the eyes with a pale blue overlay. Here you can really see the variations in tone.


The new teeth and eye white overlays. Please see the additional images for a better shot of the sclera.

They work for all ages and both genders, and look fine in all colors and shades. The files have been compressorized.

To get these to show up for all sims in your game in one easy step: After installing, simply delete the simCompositorCache.package from My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3. Don't worry, it'll respawn when you start your game.

Please note that you can only have one set of default replacement anythings in at one time. Be sure to remove any other default replacement eyes you may have before installing these, and likewise be sure to remove these if you find another set you'd prefer to have instead.

Feel free to do whatever you want with these, as long as you don't take credit for them, and let me know if you have any questions or run into any issues.

Additional Credits:
Skintone is V2 of my 'Slave' default replacement, V1 of which is available on Club Crimsyn.

Hair on female model by the lovely Bosie on Garden of Shadows. Hair on male models by me for personal use.

Excessive piercings are works in progress by me and not currently available. I have another set available here on MTS.

Fangs on female model by me, available on Club Crimsyn.

Eyebrows on male models by me and not yet released because I forgot I did them until now.

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.

They're beautiful! I have your default face replacements in my game,so I suppose overlays won't conflict?

Oh, and the eyebrows are really nice, any plans on sharing those?

These should work just fine with my default faces, and I'd be happy to share the brows.

Wow, amazing work! I really am enjoying the work you have put in for the Sims 3. And I must say... your models are absolutely gorgeous! If only I could be as talented and creative as you. *bows*

where can I get your default face replacement? I currently use HystericalParoxyms' Custard Face. I supposed it will conflict with your eyes, right? Thank you.

I read one of the other posts mentioning default face replacements. Are they actual face replacements or just a facial skintone?

Also, do you think you'll ever upload the sim in the first picture?

Those are amazing and still not photorealistic (I hate sim stuff that's photorealistic so that's good). My hatred of default replacements can't compete with my desire to have those eyes.

Winners never quit, and quiters never win.

Those who never win and never quit are idiots.

They are now up at Club Crimsyn. I only found out yesterday. I haven't post the link because it says you are about to view content which the poster etc) But it is easy to find, under recent entries. And they are gorgeous skins.
