@MiguChen If you're using custom skins, you need to make sure to update to work with the newest patch. Check S4Studio if they have a batch fix now and if not, check with the creator.

Sims 4 white lines all over body?

★★★ Newbie

Hello!

 

I went to play the sims 4 after a year off it. 

 

I made my sim and everything was good untill I got into the game play. 

 

I do have CC in my game but this has never happened before and I have not touched or downloaded any more.

 

The sim has patchy white stripe marks all over her skin and clothing. 

 

Weird thing is when i went to load a older game which was working fine over a year ago only the female sims are coming up stripes not the males...

 

I've been searching everywhere for questions but it seems no one's had this problem? 

 

I needed to update the game before I played. But I've never had this type of thing happen before. 

 

Could it be my device? Or the game?

The last patch has broken most scripts mods and a large part of CC.
Move the mods folder to the desktop.
Delete localthumbcache.package file in the game - important!
Fix the game in Origin.
Origin/Library -right click on TS4 - option "Repair game"
You have to wait until Origin will fix all packs, not only the base game.
Turn on the game to create a new, empty mods folder and check if a game is working now without mods and CC.
Check if there are new updated versions of the mods and CC you are using.
Then copy from desktop your mods and CC and paste it in the new mods folder. First, paste script mods one by one every time checking if the game is OK. Do the same with CC but if you have a lot of this, try the 50/50 method. ( divide your CC into smaller batches for example 50 pieces in one subfolder and check these subfolders one by one)
You need to find a culprit and either remove it or replace it with an updated version

Moving this thread back to tech

I made a new thread for non-cc related (which is mostly the scout uniform that's affected: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-A-S-Scout-Uniform-appears-has-random-texture/td-p/...

If you have no cc AT ALL (empty mods folder, deleted localthumbcache.package), please use thread above in the bug forum.

If not, please remove all your cc (skins, eyes, eye lashes, overlays ...) and make sure everything is updated before you put it back.

white boxes on sims in live mode

★ Novice

I have never encountered this problem so I am asking everyone for help Frown

I haven't played the sims for a day before this. So I open up, everything's fine, I create a sim - everything is completely normal and how it is supposed to be, however, once I went in game, my sim started showing up with these white boxes on her?? 

I am not sure on what to do,,, Again, I haven't had this problem the last time I played. No updates happened, I didn't download any more cc, it just happened.

I tried changing the outfits but it's the same on every single one.
How can I get rid of those boxes? Has someone experienced this problem as well?

@honeyjnn merged your post.

For most this is outdated cc. Make sure it's all still compatible with the newest patch.

Here's a list that can help you find the problem ones: https://forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/960932/broken-updated-mods-cc-island-living-june-2019-pa...

Re: After June patch my mermaid sim is covered in white squares

★★ Novice

I'm having the same problem too! Except it appears on normal sims and on cc that I previously had before the update and nothing is popping up. It stops when i turn laptop mode on BUT then the blonde streaks appear on my alpha hairs

@EternalSimmers The cc will probably need to be fixed by the creators or maybe through a batch fix on S4Studio.
