View Full Version : Facial hair coloration issue
7th Jun 2011, 4:26 AM
I recently tried to make a facial hair (just an opacity edit to get rid of a mustache when I only wanted the beard), and no matter what color I chose as my base, only the image file for the black-haired version showed up for me to work with. And when I imported it, the new item only came in black. I wanted it to be brown, and eventually ended up just approximating the color of the brown hair it would go with and utilizing trial and error. I know I must be doing something wrong for the facial hair to not link to the hair color, but what is it?

I am having the same issue. I want to use just the moustache from the moustache/soul patch/chin scruff facial hair, but I want all colors and all i get is black and elder grey when I export it. I want all the colors... Any help would be appreciated by myself and Kestin I'm sure...

even if that's what you get you can still use the black, just brighten it by 50% to get a gray base that'll be recolorable with any color overlay if you want to recolor. You may have to go into SIMPE and export the actual package images for the Maxis colors to use. Just be sure to keep a duplicate edited opacity that you can use for a reference when editing the color version.
