Changing skin tone

Changing skin tone

Postby Bexx87 » January 5th, 2017, 3:27 am


Im going to attempt to create my own spotty alien skin to liven up game, but the question I want to know is if a sim can change its skin while aging up so say it starts off age a blue baby time and changes to a green toddler sim when aging because if that could happen it would be much better and more exciting

The texture files for each age are separate from each other, so you could make a blue baby skin and a green toddler if you wanted. Just depends on how you edit the files.

When you open a skin tone in bodyshop, there's a file for each age state, (Baby, toddler, child, teen, adult, elder) and separate files for male and female for, iirc, teen, adult, and elder. You don't have to make the same edits to each one. (It used to be very popular to slap a tattoo on the adult skin of one gender and call it a whole new skin, despite it being a repeat of whatever you cloned it from, but if you have Bon Voyage you can use tattoo overlay boxes now.)
