Sims 4 CC Hair won't change colours

★★★★ Novice

So I went to play the Sims 4 today (November 13, 2018) and my origin said that there was an update available, so it wouldn't let me play the game until I updated. After I updated my game I decided to change one of my sims hairstyles and I went to click on the hair colour that suited her other hairs but it wouldn't change to that colour. So I tried another hair and another, and they didn't change colours. Now not EVERY SINGLE one of my CC hairs does this, but if there is a fix other than finding the "broken" CC, and then deleting and re-installing the hair that would be greatly appreciated. (I also haven't checked if it's doing this for my cc clothes)

Custom Content Hair Color Swatches:
This can now be changed again. Sims were going through their “natural look” phase and were rejecting CC hair. But all the Dev team Dads commented on how hip it looks so, needless to say, Sims want their CC back. A little reverse psychology works wonders.

This issue should be solved with Patch 1.47.51

 

Please all update your games and let me know how it goes.

I also downloaded the Sims 4: Seasons, Toddler Stuff, and Jungle Adventure after updating my game if that helps. But I don't think that downloading those would make the hair colours stop changing. If it doesn't make sense - basically when I press on a colour block to change my sims hair from red to blonde, I can click on the block, but the colour of the hair doesn't change, it just stays red.

Hi  @93_abc_241559

 

 

Looks like there's currently an issue with custom content hair .. guess it's waiting until the creators can figure it out.

Having the same issue since I downloaded the update today. Not all of my CC hairs are affected (just the ones I use regularly, annoyingly).

 

Trying to google a fix but nothing so far, I’ve reatarted the game and repaired it on Origin but nada.. but it’s a lot of effort to find all of the hairs online and re-download them to find that they’re still corrupted 🤷🏽‍♀️

As this is an issue with custom content, repairing won't help.

 

Creators will probably need to update their hair (chances are that S4Studio releases a batch update for them)
