This is a set of 24 face sliders available to use in Bodyshop, CaS and the plastic surgery machine.
I tried not to recreate sliders made by other creators but I somewhat failed.

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 (since it isn't possible to make a slider work perfectly with every face archetype, I've made it statistical way)
  • if it were possible, support for low detail faces (they're sometimes used to create households thumbnails)
They're the same as in the 20 Sliders set but I forgot to write about all of them that time.

Contents of the set
  • 5 full face siders:
    • cheek raise
    • upper jowl width
    • ear depth difference
    • ear shape
    • outer orbit depth
  • 1 brow slider:
    • eyebrow center shift
  • 15 eye sliders:
    • upper eyelid curve
    • upper eyelid lift
    • lower eyelid curve
    • upper eyelid shift
    • eyelid crease curve
    • eyelid crease lift
    • upper eyelid height
    • upper eyelid width
    • eye corners distance
    • eye corners height difference
    • lower eyelid shift
    • eye bag curve
    • eye bag lift
    • lower eyelid height
    • lower eyelid width
  • 1 nose slider:
    • nostril rotation
  • 1 mouth slider:
    • philtrum depth
  • 1 jaw & chin slider:
    • jaw 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.

So this is in addition to your other 20 sliders? Wow, that's really great! Maybe I need to try to create a sim now.

Alright! more sliders on top of the other ones you made, The jaw slider is a definite must for me because it seems whatever sim I make the chin sticks down and out creating an irreparable bulge. The jaw definition slider helps with that nicely. Now I have a million ways to shape the eyes. Well done. Now if only we could customize the body shapes as well as the faces instead of looking for bodyshapes all over the internet and back.

Thank you for adding more options to the sliders. I loved the original set and the ability to make my created Sims have unique physicality keeps expanding.

Thank you. It's always nice to see these improvements. Good work. I also agree with pianogrinder, that we could use some body sliders as well. Any chance of that?

@pianogrinder @suzymarie64 I would also love to see body sliders… but there is no known way to make them. Face sliders are vertex-based (unlike The Sims 3 sliders whose are bone-based) and modify sims' faces permanently. Every sim has their own face mesh and a resource that contains information about equivalent faces for every gender and age group. There are no equivalent files for bodies or scalps – they're just global, no sim has their own body or hairstyle. Body sliders can't be also vertex-based, for example because body meshes differ in number of vertices.

New sliders, yay!
Thank you, Nopke, I am going to try them right away.
Your Eyebrow Center Shift one is particularly awesome. If you ever have a chance to make sliders which make parts of the eyebrows wider or thinner, I'll be a fan too!

Time for me to put these sliders to work. I've been waiting for a new set of sliders, since none of the other mod creators that I've seen so far have made very satisfying custom sliders! :D

YAS! You're a genius. I will forever be grateful to those who still mace CC for Sims 2 = the best Sims game ever. Is it possible to make one to adjust head size?

@merdersupernova Unfortunately, for now we don't know how to create non-face sliders.
