Default [FOUND] WCIF More Maxis-Matched Skins
I'm building up all the CC I'll be using once I get a sufficient computer to play all of them on. The only thing that I haven't found is extra maxis-match skins for more genetic diversity in my 'hoods to go alongside the default skins in CAS. I have come across both Phaenoh's 'Correlated Skins' and VirtualAlex's 'Correlated skintones - maxis skins' but as what it says on the tin, they're both correlated; so that means whatever hair color I pick it automatically picks a skin for it, at least from what I gathered. I've looked on other websites and ran across a bunch of beautiful sets ('You Are What You Eat' by Aquilegia, and much of Lilith-sims skintones on tumblr) but the skins they offered changed the facial structure too much. I'm not sure if it's due to their own CC or if it's set to be that way in CAS.

This got wordy but I didn't want to make this confusing, any help is appreciated . If this is posted in the wrong category let me know!

I'm still a little wary of Lilith-sims' skins or any variations (I like the cartoony maxis faces, only to a certain degree) but they still look good to use. Maybe I'll change my mind . I'll put those down on my reference list, thank you @SciBirg :D

I adore SleepyTabby's sets. There's an amazing range, including pale with rosy cheeks. They all have such gorgeous details. They're the ones I use in my game, including her defaults.

Not gonna lie when I opened the link I got a little spooked by the screenshots . I've seen these before a while ago actually, but I'm adding these to the list. Thank you :D!

@SciBirg I got your reply but for some reason it's not showing up here . I think I accidentally sent it back to you through PM and not here on the thread or something, if you didn't get it I'll copy-paste it here. I'm still learning the ups and downs of this site- that and it's almost 6 am on my end of the world so nice going me, running on little to no sleep again .

Since I found this set back in 2009 they have been my skins that I have use ever since.

"You Are What You Eat -- 12 Delicious Skintones" http://www.digitalperversion.net/ga...hp?topic=9469.0

The screenshots do not do these skins justice and they look way better in game.

12 + 2 not enough for you? Lovestained heart made 7 more natural tones in Trapping's colors here and 4 supernatural tones here !

Thanks! I still like how YAWYE looks, so I may end up using those. If not I can always learn how to make my own skins . Also I need to find that photobucket plug-in somebody mentioned here, because all the links I click on, the pics are gone . Also, I did find these Leh skins while I did some poking around, these also look good!

I do not like maxis match on sims, but these are quite nice.

Je mange des girafes et je parle aussi français !...surtout :0)

I totally understand @Rosebine, I lean more towards maxis-match because real realistic/shiny skinsets scare me. I saw them for the first time when I was younger and they've scarred me ever since >.>

Ahah! I don't like shiny either, well..I think what I do have is not anyway. But I love realistic everything, on my sims

You may or may not like these http://lilith-sims.tumblr.com/post/...ey-skinblend-hi.

The default database is also a decent source to search as well https://sims2defaults.dreamwidth.org/333689.html (I filtered it for Maxis match skins).

I've seen the 'honey honey' skinblends before! Though the faces have been changed. Again, I'm not sure if Lilith made it that way or it's the CC she uses. I know most of the skinblends have edited noses and lips- some not too noticeable. And I have the defaults page bookmarked, I check in every now and then for anything new .

I don't know how I missed these, but I'm flailing a little too hard right now ;-; - http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=474018. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna end up using these skins, and it's great that I can pick and choose since they're individual downloads . And these too - http://n99forumpaks.jfade.com/index...ory=3&subcat=26

I tried some shiny skins, and soon got to the point where I hated them. I then had to do a fair bit of searching to find a skin I liked, and eventually plumped for these from PeachT: Candybars - with defaults.
Unfortunately, the in-line pics are no longer working, but there is a working link to a preview.
To give a little extra variety which blend beautifully due to being based on the others, I grabbed Jessi's Wearing Diamonds. I did have to fiddle with the genetic figures though, as the numbers didn't tie in with the defaults!

No need to use my full name, "Selly" will do just fine.

The first one looks okay! Don't know about the second one, the faces make me wary. I do like the freckles on the second set however :0. Thank you for your suggestions, though :D!

Okay I know I marked this as 'solved/answered' but I'm adding two more finds to this thread in case anybody stumbles across. I ran into these and they're just what I was looking for as well! Only thing different is that the creator altered the nostrils and mouth (doesn't look that noticeable to me) and added nsfw bits, but other than that I fell in love with them the moment I saw them:

1) http://littlelittlesimmies.tumblr.c...s-skin-download

2) http://littlelittlesimmies.tumblr.c...addons-download

Now I'm gonna be overwhelmed when the time comes to choose the ones I like the most, they're all so pretty ;-;

Thank you so much for coming back to the thread and sharing that last link. Like you, I like the Maxis skins (particularly the faces) but prefer to have a few more shades. Over the years I've tried pretty much all the other suggestions, but there was always something that I didn't like as much about them as the originals. Lots of things I liked better too, but somehow those shadows on the cheekbones or redder lips on the darker skins would make me go off searching again.

I've now had the Maxis/Feathers defaults in my game for a long play session yesterday, inspecting Sims of all four skintones, and liked them well enough that I've now popped half the geneticised ones as well (the ones ranging between S1 and S4, as I'm not sure yet if I want to go darker or lighter). Not sure I'd have changed the lips from Maxis if there'd been an option without, but it's subtle, and I do like the nose improvements. So thank you for the find.

You're welcome! And I agree with you there, and I'm glad to see I'm not the only one here who likes the Maxis skins , no offense to anyone who likes the realistic skins suggested here. And I like the subtlety of the skins too, so I'm gonna use all of them in my future game :D!

EDIT AS OF 7/10/18: does this count as necro'ing a post? Anyway, I found another set at GOS, this one has body hair and it looks great
