    I wish the eyeshadow looked that perfect on my sims. This is what the s-club eyeshadow looks like in my game, with the hq mod. I don't know why it looks so smudged. And believe it or not, it actually looked even worse than that without the hq mod. :oops:

    I'm actually really happy with the hq mod though, it gave more detail to everything, but I guess there's no improving that eyeshadow in my game unless I get a better computer someday. And here are a couple extra screenshots with the hq mod, just because. :wink:

    I made her last night to test out the hq mod, and now I want to upload her, but she probably won't, because she's more than likely more than 23mb. And that's the biggest my launcher will upload. :(

    Yup, they are. It improved everything, just not that eyeshadow very much. :/

    I've found that a lot of eyeshadows don't work with the HQ mod purely because they don't have the textures to support it. The HQ mod does work brilliantly for lipsticks/lip glosses and eyelashes, as well as working with the "You are real" mod, which adds more definition to a sim's skin.

    I think I'm using Dachs HQ mod (which is the S-club one, they took over management of the HQ mod after Dachs stopped supporting it). There's also AWT's HQ mod, a little laggier but I've found it's so much easier to tailor the mod depending on how you play your game.

    I used to play with a full strength ratio, namely 4096-2560. I now use one about half the size, because the computer I'm playing on isn't mine, and I refuse to fry my boyfriend's graphics card (even if it is a beast of a machine. haha)

    Also, when lashes are concerned, I've found that they render differently on some shape eyes compared to others.

    Quick examples of shots with a medium strength HQ mod (Dachs' one) from my boyfriend's super computer:

    8628595312_7f3860ec80_c.jpg

    Shots from my old laptop, full strength AWT HQ mod being used here:

    8429336903_d88d0904e3_c.jpg

    Also, if you're going to venture into HQ mods, I'd suggest going with the "You are real" skin mod by buhudain (I cannot spell it - I have the "non rude" version of this mod haha). You can see the detailing in my sim's hand:

    8383950744_234705a8b9_c.jpg


    Gah! One more note, as you can see by what Ninja has done, using the sliders that come with the Sclub lashes, making them longer means that they look better in game once you get out of CAS. :)

    Aww they look adorable!

    I JUST HAD THE CRAZIEST EXPERIENCE... O_O I went in game, and put a female sim into my household. She has that hair that doesn't have the best texture. It's really long and wavy. So... when I brought her in... Her make-up, her hair, her skin, her clothes... were all combined and glitchy. It looked so scary... but then after it turned back to normal XD So, basically her hair looked great with the hq mod! It looked so much better than it did before without the mod!

    Goodness I'm gone for 2 years and I come back to HQ mods and pose packs and.. wow I'm overwhelmed!

    I got a new computer, on my old one the graphics weren't good at all (mirrors didn't have reflection and sims were so blocky). I had so much CC since I entered competitions.

    It slowed my game down so much that I just couldn't stand to play anymore :lol:
    Now with my new computer I've just been downloading .simpack files and I have a default replacement skin and eyes.

    Maybe you guys would know how to prevent the slowing of a game due to CC? ;) with all this new stuff, it seems rare to not have a fix for this!

    P.S. all of your pictures are gorgeous, I'm having a blast sifting through (:

    Welcome back! There is a way of preventing the slowing of the game due to CC, but it is only for packages (the ones that are saved under this is folder path My Documents/Electronic Arts/Sims 3/Mods/Packages). The process is called merging which is just squishing all the files together to increase loading time in the game, etc. :3 It doesn't work with simspacks, but I hardly use those because I think those cause more lag in the game more so than packages. But there is a way to convert simpacks into packages. (not through the launcher though.)

    The HQ mod isn't recommended for constant gameplay, only for photoshoot sessions. It's in the disclaimer of aWT's HQ mod.

    @MissBrite: Ahha, I thought his name would suit him perfectly ;P

    Hi guysss!

    Joining in with something kind of funny...

    My sims have no necks and I have no idea why. I'm pretty sure it's something I installed but I just have to find what that is.
