Fawkes's 12 Skin Colors Late Night Updated

I've updated Fawke's 12 Skin Colors so the muscle definition from the slider that was added in Late Night works. Credit goes to Fawkes for creating these awesome skin colors (and allowing for me to upload these☺) that with out these I and many others would not have our Rainbowcies that we write or just the variation in our sims that we so desire.


If you are using the original skin colors already on a previously made sim you'll have to take them into Create-A-Sim, switch them to a normal skin tone, then change their outfit and then pick the color that they need with the update skin colors and the muscle definition will stick on them when you exit CAS. Otherwise if you are creating a fresh sim just select which ever color you want with the updated skin colors and go from there. 

Please fully read all of this post and comments before asking any questions as you will find most of them already answered.

*They do not and will not replace any of your skin tones. If you are not using a mod to be able to view all of the skin tones then you will need to use the scroll button on your mouse or figure out how to scroll on your touch pad with your laptop.


*They are package files so there is no need/way to extract them. Just put them directly in after downloading them.


*These skins work perfectly with all expansions and stuff packs up to Pets and Outdoor living and will probably continue working perfectly fine with any other ones that come out.

  2. You're welcome :D Now if only it was this easy to figure out how to work Milkshape then I'd make a whole slew of victory roll hairstyles.

    Also, I couldn't even figure out what version of Blender I should download, so keep that in mind when wishing you were better at milkshape :D

  5. @ LoL thanks kitty!

    @Scones For Cream Tea Thanks...LoL I have all the stuff I need to make hair but I just can't for the life of me figure out how to in milkshape. If I could just figure out how to create a strand or something I could go from there :/

  7. I have one question: Do the Sims inherit these skin tones, or would I have to go and change each Sim after they turn into toddlers? I'm sorry, but I found no knowledge of this on Fawkes page in MtS, and I really don't know how non-default (I assume these are non-defaults since it wasn't said anywhere they are defaults) skintones behave. :)

    And thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Yes they are nondefault skin colors so they will not replace EA's skin colors that came with the game. And they are inheritable so if two sims that use these colors have a baby their baby with inherit one of which ever colors their parents have.

  9. Thank you so much for the answer. :) Downloading and installing them now. :)

  10. What would I need to use these? Or can I just download them and pop them into the game?

    ReplyDelete
  11. @Kris If you know how to install package files then you just have to install them as you normally would.

    If you do not know how to install package files I suggest following this to a 'T'

  12. So is this a slider? All I found when I installed was green skin.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Did you download the individual file or the all in one?

    If you downloaded the all in one file use the scroll button on your mouse to scroll through the rest of the skincolors.

    ReplyDelete
  14. How do I download them, I'm lost. :(

    Please help? :3

    ReplyDelete
  15. Pick either the all in one file link or the indivdual files link, dependind if you want all of them or just a couple of the skintones.

    It will take you to the mediafire site and then you'll click the download link and it will be downloaded to your computer.

    Follow the directions I posted in an earlier reply to install them.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Thanks so much for the link! But I was wondering-- I don't have the Late Night expansion pack and since it says Late Night, if I download the skintones will they still work? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  17. They should work if you've patched since Late Night was released since with that patch it added in the muscle definition slider I believe.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hi I would like to know if those work with the latest EA patch.

    Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hi. I got the skintones to download, but I can't scroll. I know earlier u said use your mouse scroll but i'm on a laptop so how would I view the rest?

    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  20. @Aelisc Yes, they work with the lastest patch.

  21. Ok so I am going to download these and my main question is:

    If I am going to create a Rainbowcy, how do I get the townies to have kids that are different colors (other than the normal white or black)? Or do I have to manually change their skin tones

    ReplyDelete
  22. @Anonymous If you have the MC mod by Twallan you can use the edit in CAS under advance options. Or you can shift+click and choose edit in CAS and then just change the color from there.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yay! I downloaded the all in one link but I only got a few colors... And my normal red, blue, green, white and black have disappeared... Have I made a boo boo somewhere?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ignore the 7:55pm post... I wasn't scrolling correctly... Off to plan my own rainbowcy!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hey i've tried to down load the skins but they won't open as a package file which winrar should pick up on :S am i doing something wrong...

    ReplyDelete
  26. hey thanks but when i download them and open them up, i cant see them all and some of my other skins are replaced. do i need a mod to make them show up?

    ReplyDelete
  27. You should be able to scroll through but CmarNYC has skintone panel mod with her metallic skins over at MTS...it is a seperate dl so if you don't want the letal skins you don't have to get them

    ReplyDelete
  28. hi, thanks for the links!! i just have a tiny question.. do they work with generations (patch 1.24)??

    ReplyDelete
  29. @Bambina thats because it is a package file. All you need to do is put the file in your mods folder as you do with any other CC file.

    @Jellybean They have not replaced any skins in your game. Just use the scroll button on your mouse or if you use a laptop follow the directions that I posted in an earlier comment on how to scroll with a touch pad to view all of your skins.

    @Anonymous Thank you for answering since I haven't been around all that often in the past month due to moving.

    @rainbowcynoob The skins work perfectly with generations there is no issues with the body hair overlay options as there were with LN and muscle definition overlay.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I can not get the file to extract on my computer and I do not know why. Help?

    ReplyDelete
  31. @Kiersten that's because it is a package file and does not need to be extracted.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I've never installed a mod before, so I have no idea what to do, and when I try to download the skins, it tells me that windows cannot open the file. What do I do?

    ReplyDelete
  33. @Anonymous Please read what is written in red on the post or some of the questions that had been asked already in the comments here. The reason why you can not open the file is because it is a package file. All you have to do after downloading is just place it in your mods folder and play your game.

    ReplyDelete
  34. @cupcake
    Sorry for being difficult. >.< Where is it when it downloads? I don't have a mods folder.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hi,

    I tried to download the skins but I accidentally tried to open them with winrar, which I found out you aren't supposed to do. :(

    Now every time I try to download the skins, it shows up as a winrar file and I know it's not supposed to be, so is it bad if I try to put it in my game even though it's a winrar file?

    Also, do you just put the skins in the mods folder, or elsewhere?

    Thanks :)

  37. hey these are really great but when I downloaded them they replaced other skintones. I was wondering what i could do about that

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Please reread the discription as you will find that these do not replace any of the original skintones. The reason why you think that they have is because unless you have a mod that lets you see more than 6 skintones you have to use your mouse or if you have a laptop touchpad to scroll through the options since the game only allows you to see at a time 6 skintones.

  38. You can't download them anymore from Mod the Sims. Is there any where else?

    ReplyDelete
  39. I would also like to know if they are anywhere else.

    1. They are both linked at the bottom of the blog post in the original upload file I did ages ago and a mirrored one.

  40. I downloaded them but they look like EA made skin tones but different color. I thought they'd add smooth pretty faces to it, and here it just looks like color addition and nothing new... Please help me I honestly don't know how to make it pretty like it should be. According to so many rainbowcy i read, this skin tone has to have this shine to it and not the plainness of EA made skintones.

    ReplyDelete

    1. That is because you need default replacements to make their skin look pretty otherwise they are still stuck with EA's bland faces and bodies. These just add an overlay of color to their body and faces. It does not change how their faces and bodies look beyond just doing that.

      I personally use these default replacements

      http://mysims3blog.blogspot.jp/2012/04/eskin-weak-by-ephemera.html

      But you could find ones that might better suit you by looking through here(there are a number of default replacements beyond faces and bodies listed there too, like eyes and the such)
