This is an assortment of 5 robotic eyes. They are located in Full Face Makeup and work as contacts. They work on any sim of any age, but are ideal for simdroids and plumbdroids (simbots and plumbots that have a humanoid appearance).

They look best and most realistic when used with the Glowing Eyes for Humanoid Plumbots or Simbots mod. All screenshots are shown on plumbdroids with that mod. They will not glow on regular sims.

There are a few ways you can make plumbdroids:
Build a plumb-droid without MC
How to make a plumbot look like a sim.
Making an android/robot hybrid plumbot

The eyes show a little bit of light leakage on the lower outer edge of the iris when used with the glowing eyes mod. This seems to have nothing to do with the iris texture size or position as even textures that cover the entire eyeball exhibit this minor issue in the same place.

The five eye styles included in this download are:
  1. Illusive Man eyes from the Mass Effect 2 and 3 games.

  2. HAL eyes. Resembles the glowing camera eye from HAL 9000 in 2001: A Space Odyssey.

  3. Droid eyes. Resembles the Verizon Droid X phone eye.

  4. Techno eyes. A unique design from darthblinx on deviantART, which unfortunately, due to the lack of detail in Sims 3 eyes, doesn't do his original design justice. However, it looks good in the game. The irises being asymmetrical gave female sims a little bit of the illusion of a cross-eyed appearance because female sim eye textures are mirrored, so to reduce that illusion I've rotated the irises 90-degrees in comparison to darthblinx's artwork.

  5. Robotic eyes. I followed this Photoshop tutorial, How To Create Robotic Eye With Photoshop, except instead of using my finished product for artwork, I used it to make a robotic eye for sims.

Each one is in a separate .package file so you can install them all, or only the ones you like.

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.

Default Failure to Download D:
Only problem with this now is that it won't open...I did before and it was fine but I think I didn't install it right. Now when I try downloading it ... it says "cannot open this type of file" and then puts optional check boxes to see if I open it with an application which I don't do whatsoever. I think this is only compatible with certain things like sims future expansion. how disappointing, I was really looking forward to these too

Also why is it under makeup if they are eyes...I guess because they are a texture and not an object such as the eyes them selves. I must delve deeper into how to make things on a render application :O

Thank you though

Your guess is exactly correct, that's the reason.

I love these; do you think you'd ever consider making eyes that match the cores and other bots in Portal 2? Or maybe releasing some files for us to make our own?? o 3o

@Lareiielle, if you want to make your own eyes, it should be possible to by extracting the individual files in the .package file. I would consider making other eyes, I'm not familiar with the Portal 2 bots. Is this the style you had in mind? http://s3images.coroflot.com/user_f...N_J1RLxOn4r.png

@GnatGoSplat Is there a program to do that with?

And there's actually images for all the cores (as well as the turrets and other robots) on the wiki right here! It'd be awesome if you could, but I can always figure it out if it's not your thing. uvu

You can call me Crimson. It's shorter. 8y

@Lareiielle, I used s3pe, TSR Workshop, and of course, Photoshop. A straight-on, clear view of the eyes with no obstructions is easiest to work with. This would be an excellent source material: http://captainmoony.deviantart.com/...round-253059684 Are those the eyes you've got in mind? They're cool looking, I would definitely like to make them into eyes, but not sure when I'd be able to do it.

EDIT: Maybe this person's eyes would be a better source material because they don't have a glow effect applied (with the glowing eyes mod, the mod itself would apply a glow effect). http://moonshadowvampira.deviantart.com/gallery/

@GnatGoSplat Thaank you!

And yeah, that second set would work great! Absolutely take your time if this is something you'd like to do, I've got nothing but time (especially for portal stuff) lol. 8>

The glowy blue ones remind me of Mag's eyes from "Repo: The Genetic Opera". By the way. How do I use the robotic eyes in Sims 3?
