default replacement for the bodyshop mannequin skin. most of my sims  have skinttones ranging from medium to very dark, so having a paler mannequin was making it difficult to see how makeup and clothing transparences would look on most sims. this is just a straight recolor of the kids in technicolor blend since thats still my default skin set.

download matchmaker overhaul!credits: hair mesh by HystericalParoxysm, texture by AlfredAskew. suit is a Trapping edit of an Amaryll outfit.
since the matchmaker is all about money i decided hey instead of relying on uncomfortable ethnic stereotypes (/stares pointedly at EAxis), why don’t i just make her a slick business lady.
the package will replace her hair, makeup (removes it) and outfit. additionally her new hair and outfit are unhidden and available in the catalog so yr EF sims in general can use them. this does not replace or unhide the other hidden recolors of her hair or outfit, just the ones that she uses.
i think that is everything goodbye.

download face templates!

bonus download: ideal plantsim (26eelf) and pollination technician (28alien)!

credits: Fillyfoal, Lionspau, AlfredAskew, Uranium Z, Revolvertrooper and especially Azayawife, who not only provided the sim bases for like half of these templates but helped enormously with coding, testing, quality control and last-minute fixing assistance. (I love you, my little strawberry milkshake pop tart!)

WOO, face templates that have been in the works off and on for over a year, I shit you not. These are kind of a followers gift, in that there are close to 2500 of you (WHOA) and I feel as if gifts are in order to thank you guys for putting up with me!

Here is a gif of all the faces in BodyShop:

And HERE are large previews of the faces in game, with detailed credits and some notes on the features:

01Heart | 02Base | 03Erus | 04Emed | 05Cban | 06Cmas | 07Eafr | 08Easi | 09Cino | 10Este | 11Cmay | 12Eeas | 13Ecer | 14Cteu | 15Ceth | 16Eeng | 17Cara | 18Caus | 19Ccel | 20Cind | 21Cper | 22Cmed | 23Cpla | 24Cpol | 25Csla | 26Eelf | 27Etge | 28Alien

I should note, I couldn’t puzzle out what regions most of the templates were meant to represent, so my replacements aren’t intended to be an accurate reflection of any specific area or ethnicity. They’re pretty much just a grab-bag of features I like mashed together on various faces.

One thing I did try really hard to accomplish was minimizing the amount of game-influenced difference between ages and genders. Switching a face from F to M should not result in a thinner, sulkier mouth, hollower cheeks and smaller eyes across the board, that makes no sense. I could not, however, fix this hard-coded game glitch that (as far as I have seen) effects all replacement templates as well as the maxis default faces.

I THINK THAT’S EVERYTHING?? Let me know if I messed anything up. (I’m so full of painkillers right now that it is 99% likely that I have messed something up.)

edit: oh ok i did mess a couple things up in notes on the in-game previews. 25 should say that the mouth was edited with milkshape rather than the nose and 26 should say the sim’s name is moth, not moss.

having said that, here’s some clarity on a few things i’ve been asked:

download plantsim default.
this is a plantsim skin that i made and then forgot about, but azaya uses it in her game and an anon asked about it in the most recent gashlypost so i am posting it now!
the skin itself is a semi-transparent overlay and so it will look different on different skintones, but the vines on it are solid and ganked from aquilegia’s vines only default. the skin uses the textures from my kids in technicolor set but it works fine with other skins, from what i’ve seen.
here is a largely unhelpful cap of the wilted state, and for comparison here’s the same sim unwilted. basically the wilted state is just more yellow-ish, with the brown vines.
(side note: if you have the hack to unlock supernatural skins in bodyshop/cas, this skin will look hella fucking weird and neon as shit because bodyshop/cas is only able to display one skintone at a time, so it shows overlay skins as solid.)

credits: gosh, I wish I knew. These were photoskinned from a couple of pictures (1, 2) that are basically all over wallpaper websites which makes tracking down the original photographers super difficult. If anyone knows please give me a shout!

but anyway yes. DEFAULT EYES FOR YR CATS. The eventual goal is a comparable eye texture for dogs and retextured/recolored coats for both. But in the interim, and for those who like the unaltered maxis cat fur, here be eyeballs. I strayed from the beaten path in terms of colors but that’s mostly because I didn’t think the maxis range made a whole lot of sense after staring at lots of websites on cat genetics, like so.

so yeah I HOPE YOU FIND THEM USEFUL MAYBE? ok goodbye.

edit: oops i almost forgot to include the psd for folks who want different colors here you go

ok, so, we have:
6 sets of freckles by other (cooler) people, edited to show better on darker skintones
6 face shine masks, toned down to look less oily
5 edited nose shapers
4 eyebag masks (including a super old one of mine that i never properly released)
2 edits of the maxis santa blush
2 black lipstick edits
2 waterlines (which azaya and i use on literally every sim but now i have edited them to layer better so if you already have one or both, get this version instead)
basically i have been trying to update my favorite face stuff to work on darker skintones so that is the primary theme here. and then i just threw in some extra stuff that was either too small for its own set or that never got a proper release/was only packaged with a sim. so some stuff is waaaay at the back of the catalog, just fyi. also, some masks look really silly on super pale sims (same deal as these blushes). you have been warned!
credits are (should be?) in the file names and tool tips, sorry i don’t have links to all the creators. double sorry this preview is so criminally lazy.

EDIT: file has been fixed on May 28th, 2014 to now actually be recolorable! The canvas and the frame are separate recolorable subsets now, meaning you can mix and match different frames with your sign of choice. If you downloaded this file before this update, please redownload!

credits: MogHughson for the original mesh and part of the frame texture. Azayawife for much of the SimPE help!
Azaya and I decided we wanted an arcade in the style of the one from Sailor Moon. So I hunted up a light-up shop sign for the storefront, buuuut the original mapping was not really conducive to straight-forward retexturing. So I ended up remapping the entire thing, giving it a new base texture, recategorizing it in Lighting/Misc instead of Deco/Misc and cloning it so you can have it in yr game at the same time as Mog’s original!
idk how useful the texture I made will be for literally anyone but us, but at least it will be easier to put yr own textures on it now?

blush credits: mouseyblue for the face texture used for the blush base, and jessi/jesstheex for a few texture and alpha pieces.

a sort of thank you to the folks who have been helping me track down my old missing content that i went and lost like a doof. it’s those infamous tifa lips in a bunch of non-pasty colors and some blushes made specifically for sims with darker skin. i tried to make them as versatile as possible but extremely pale sims will still look kinda weird.

Hazeling’s Under An Atomic Sky sized down, centered and re-sclera’d with Jessi’s Keep It All Inside highlights inexpertly blended in, so as to match the main set I use. Geneticized and townified. I didn’t do all the colors, just cherry-picked the ones I was likely to use in my own game but maybe someone else will find this useful idk!
