If you are a fan of The Sims 4, you might have heard of kijiko lashes. They are custom content eyelashes created by a talented modder named Kijiko. In this blog post, we will explain what kijiko lashes are, how to install them, and why they are so popular among simmers.
What are Kijiko Lashes?
Kijiko lashes are 3D eyelashes that add more realism and beauty to your sims. They come in different styles, colors, and lengths, so you can customize them to suit your preferences. Unlike the default EA eyelashes, which are flat and pixelated, kijiko lashes are hand-drawn and have a 3D mesh that makes them look more natural and voluminous.
Kijiko lashes are divided into two categories: accessories and skin details. Accessories lashes are worn as rings, glasses, or earrings, and can be found in the accessories section of CAS. Skin details lashes are applied as mouth or forehead creases, and can be found in the skin details section of CAS. Both types of lashes can be layered and mixed to create different looks.
How to Install Kijiko Lashes?
To install kijiko lashes, you need to download the files from Kijiko’s website or other sources. Make sure you choose the right version for your game, as there are different files for base game, Cats & Dogs, and Seasons. You also need to download the EA eyelash remover mod, which will remove the default EA eyelashes and prevent them from clashing with kijiko lashes.
Once you have downloaded the files, you need to unzip them and place them in your Mods folder, which is located in Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods. You can create subfolders to organize your mods, but make sure they are not more than one level deep. For example, you can create a folder named Eyelashes and put all your eyelash mods there, but you cannot create a folder named Kijiko inside the Eyelashes folder.
After placing the files in your Mods folder, you need to enable mods and custom content in your game settings. To do this, go to Options > Game Options > Other and check the boxes for Enable Custom Content and Mods and Script Mods Allowed. Then, restart your game and you should be able to see kijiko lashes in CAS.
