The TS4 skintone system has a lot of potential, and I've been working on a tool to make it easier to work with, similar to Skininator for TS3.
Definition of Terms: (These are the terms I'm using - they're not 'official'.)
TONE : A game file which defines a skintone. It links to the color images, the overlays, and contains various settings.
Skintone : The skin you click on in CAS, which is defined by a TONE file.
Body skin details : A texture with shading, contouring, and details such as muscles and belly buttons. (Yes, I know there's a separate 'skin details' in CAS. Couldn't think of a better term.) There are separate textures for each age/gender/bodytype.
Skin color image : A texture which applies color and some shading composited with the skin details. There is one skin color texture which is applied to all age/genders.
Overlay : A texture which is layered on top of the skin details and skin color. The ages and genders it applies to can be specified.
Create/Edit Custom Skin Colors
Cloning Tool : Clones game skintones and creates a package with the TONE files.
Clone Package Editor : Open and modify cloned packages.
TONE Manager : Add/Delete TONEs, modify flags defining the type and usage, modify the swatch color and various other settings, import and export the skin color images.
Overlay Manager : Add/Delete overlays, define which ages/genders each overlay applies to, import and export overlay images.
Previewer : Preview skintones.
Create/Edit Default Replacement Skin Details
Make New Default Replacement Package : Select which skin details you want to replace and clone them to a new package.
Edit/Test Default Replacement Package : Import/Export textures and preview the skin details.

If you’ve already got my lashes (version 2),please overwrite the old files.
If you use long eyelashes styles,you need to put main files and optional files included in this zip file into your Mods folder.
