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:

Since ohbehave007 tagged all her followers, I decided to post my desktop too (it’s quite plain but I like it that way). =]
They are finally done! IKEA Mirrors Horizontalificated, because I really needed moar two-tile mirrors in my game. Texture-linked to the original IKEA mirrors. Includes extracted IKEA mirrors for those without IKEA :)
Available on Leefish.nl: Download Here
yay - thanks klaartje - there are so few nice two tile mirrors
Friend asked for tips in decorating so I wrote down a couple things. As I am in no way the authority on this and there are a million better ‘decoraters’ on here and I’m a litte embarrassed, so I put it under a read more :3
Three old hair replacements that were granted wishes over at Garden of Shadows. The first default replaces this hair (CF-EF) from the Base Game with Lilith’s Newsea Marshmellow retexture. You can find this hair all the way in the back of the hair bin. Colours used are in the swatch below.
Lilith - Retexture
Newsea/Trapping - Mesh
The second hair replaces this hair (YF-EF) from the Open for Business expansion pack with Trapping’s 3t2 Full Moon conversion. It comes in two versions, Pooklet’s Explosive or Pyrotechnic as a red replacement.The image below demonstrates how the different reds look with the other colours.
Trapping - Hair
The third hair replaces this hair (Fixed YF-EF) from the Open for Business expansion pack with Trapping’s 3t2 Cotton Candy Curls conversion. It comes in two versions, Pooklet’s Explosive or Pyrotechnic as a red replacement. Here’s a gif to show you the two reds with the other hair colours.

Slowly (and I mean slowly) I’ll be adding my downloads to this tumblr account.
Why the long wait? Because Mad Men
So I know my Sims 2 website has only been up for a few months, though I’ve been considering taking it down in order to use the website hosting funds towards more storage on a file hosting service (most likely SugarSync cause it’s been awesome so far).
What I’m trying to decide is where to have all of the custom content located. Should I move everything to Tumblr? Should I just go back to Dreamwidth/LiveJournal? I’m kind of leaning towards Tumblr because more simmers use it (also the posting process is smoother), but a good chunk of stuff is already available at my Dreamwidth/LiveJournal.
What are your thoughts lovely followers?
This explains the Frogger logic (skip to 1:55 for the deets and the tails)
You’re very welcome Anon. And thank you for letting me know that the links are functioning. =]
