This is a set of 2 eyebrow sliders, which are available to use in CAS and BodyShop. It's enabled for males and females of all ages.
You can find these sliders in the Brow category and are called Asymmetrical Inner Brow Height - Left and Asymmetrical Inner Brow Height - Right in the game.


Actually, I only created this set of sliders because I was trying to recreate a celebrity who has slight asymmetrical eyebrows. (That sim will hopefully be uploaded in the next few weeks, so stay tuned for that!)
But since I couldn't find any already existing sliders, I decided to create my own set following this tutorial. And because I liked how these sliders turned out, I also decided to upload these here on MTS.

Ever wanted to give your sims truly unique eyebrows that were a bit asymmetrical? Now, you can do that! Yay!!
This was actually pretty fun to create to be honest. So, you might see other custom sliders made by me in the future.

To install, just extract these files and put them into your Downloads folder as usual. Unlike TS3, if you create sims based on these sliders, the downloaders do not need this set of sliders when they want to download your sim, the facial features will display correctly. Speaking of facial features, any features created by these sliders (and other custom sliders, too!) are inheritable in-game! And I believe the LOD faces are adapted accordingly as well!

Update (09/02/2020):  Apparently, they weren't before. But I've fixed that by adding the missing LOD sliders! So, it should be all good now!
If you downloaded these sliders before September 2nd 2020, I'd suggest you to re-download!

Conflicts:
I made sure that these sliders have their own GUIDs and also use unique instance numbers for their icons. So, these should not conflict with any of the already existing sliders in-game or any other custom sliders made by other creators.

In this case, they aren't. Most of custom sliders do not contain a LOD15 mesh although it's in my template slider package. I should have written a tutorial about creating sliders or at least provide all information about it to someone who could write a tutorial… But, as usual, I have no motivation or I'm busy, and no one reminds me of it…

What a cool thing to add to the game! Whenever I make a sim (which is rare, I know) But, when I do, I try to make their face sculpts as unique as possible. I love Nopke's Sliders - and now, I am very happy to add yours to my mix .

@Nopke
But once the sim's created and cloned in BodyShop... doesn't the game re-generate the LODs accordingly?

Aww, thank you so much! ^^
I've seen some of your sims in the neighborhood projects we did together (and also the ones you've uploaded) and they were always very unique!

@Jawusa As far as I know, the game never generates LODs. Sliders are applied to full-LODs and LODs15 separately and cloning sims changes nothing in their face structures.

@Nopke
That's good to know, thank you! I've added the missing LOD15 sliders now. So, these sliders should change the LOD faces accordingly now.

I love this! When I was a kid the "villain" in a Cinderella Story with Hillary Duff had an eyebrow she had permanently raised in the film. The actress's eyebrows aren't like that naturally, but I loved the facial expression. I like to create character in the faces I sculpt and this will definitely add so much. Thank you Jawusa!

Excellent work, it can give our sims a feel of natural imperfection like real people have, if we were able to handle sims expressions in game, it also could be an excellent expression morph.

From now on I'm just a lurker, the sad truth about the Orwellian status of the sims community is not "off-topic" neither is "politics".
