This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is a set of 20 face sliders available to use in Bodyshop, CaS and the plastic surgery machine.
If you have my pre-release set of sliders (simNopke-sliders1), delete it before you install the new set.

Features
  • they create inheritable facial features (if not applied in the plastic surgery machine)
  • since sims files do not contain any information about used sliders, sims created using custom sliders will be displayed properly and can be edited without problems if you haven't these sliders installed
  • adjusted to various age groups and genders
  • if it were possible, support for low detail faces (they're sometimes used to create households thumbnails)

Contents of the set
  • 2 full face siders:
    • ear rotation
    • ear sticking-out
  • 2 brow sliders:
    • eyebrows distance
    • eyebrow head thickness
  • 2 eye sliders:
    • eyelash curl
    • eye squint
  • 5 nose sliders:
    • septum width
    • nostril height
    • nose root depth
    • nose definition
    • nasal tip size
  • 6 mouth sliders:
    • cupid's bow shape
    • upper lip raise
    • lips depth difference
    • cupid's bow width
    • cupid's bow height
    • lower lip center height
  • 3 jaw & chin sliders:
    • chin crease depth
    • chin cleft
    • chin definition

Conflicts
The sliders themselves won't conflict with anything but their icons use a Maxis group so slider creators have to be careful while setting instances for icons.

Perhaps the slider files you have are corrupted.


I apparently forgot to mention that I had already tried putting them in the Downloads folder once and it hadn't worked, but moving them back and forth apparently fixed it. Not a clue why that might be though. It's been working perfectly ever since.

I had sliders from Aaroneous, which just ADDS the sliders from Body shop. Then I added these sliders - and now some of the Body Shop sliders are just GONE. I thought these did not override anything. ????

@grammapat My sliders can't override anything except of icons (see conflicts section). I use both my sliders and Aaroneous's Bodyshop sliders added to CaS, and everything seems to be perfectly fine. Delete Groups.cache and Accessory.cache from Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2 (or Documents\EA Games\The Sims™ 2 Ultimate Collection), it may help.

@SIMple Nysha has written a tutorial about it. It's still unfinished but no one cares. I can't write understandable tutorials, especially in English.
