This can be simplified a little.
Instead of extracting anything, you can right click on the first one (this is the original face) with Instance 0x00000001 and click Delete.
Then select the second one (the new face) with Instance 0x00000002, click on Resource at the bottom, and change the instance to 0x00000001. Then click Commit and Save.
FYI, avatar is not a self-sim. I am not a robotic woman. I am actually a big burly man. The biggest and the burliest.
Please help. Whenever I've tried to change only skintone in simpe, it doesn't work and tells me there was an error. What am I doing wrong?? also there are times when I have exported a sim to bodyshop so I can change genetics on unattractive sims, but when I try to go into bodyshop, it crashes. Why??? It's almost gotten to where I don't use my bodyshop at all or I'm constantly reinstalling so I may use bodyshop. Can anyone help me??? Thanks.
This has always worked perfectly for me, so thank you very much for simple and VERY easy to do tutorial. You saved my life.
However, now that I have freetime (and the updated SimPE) it no longer works. Instead of changing the genetics, it's like it reverts the genetics. If I go to change the appearance of a previously face-lifted sim, their face reverts back to before the face lift.
I have all expansions, and the new SimPE updated for AL. Here's my problem - when I click replace and go to select the file I extracted, I'm not sure which one to select. One has the .simpe extension, and one has no extension. However, my icon for the .simpe file is the same as your icon for .simpe.xml. To me it looks like the file with no extension is actually the SimPE file, and this is the one I should choose - is that correct? Please see attached screen shot.
