PS: The weirdness on some meshes is caused by the BumpMaps texture. You'll need to change it for a neutral one. (In my hairs, I use a key and the texture is not included in the file, you'll have to extract the meshes+textures and re-do the package with DABOOBS, besides that way you'll be able to reshape the mesh to fit TSM heads)


I've attached a picture of where the Medieval profession tag should show up once you are in the grid for the casp. If your not seeing it maybe you don't have the right version of the wrapper? I know there are two versions so that would be my only explanation as to why you aren't seeing it.

BTW I tried to convert that hair for my personal use and I get weird shadows in the hair when I use a blond shade. I guess that's what you mean by weirdness. Don't know what DABOOBS is so no chance I'll be doing that for just for my personal satisfaction.

Thanks Janette! I have downloaded the right version but it's not showing up like in your pictue.

Anubis, is the CASP file still original The Sims 3? And does the CASP information in the preview pane of S3PE appear or is there an error message? If the CASP is TS3, but displays correctly, then my wrapper wasn't loaded. A reason could be that you only renamed the original wrapper, but left the extension as .dll so that it's still loaded. This happened to me in a test and it was confusing because in 32bit it worked and in 64bit it didn't (or the other way round), though the code was exactly the same. As far as I can tell, all .dlls in the S3PE folder are loaded and if there are several wrappers for the same file type you can't really predict which one will be used.

Long story short: Could it be that the original wrapper is also loaded (because it's left in the folder and still has extension .dll)?

I changed the original's wrapper extension and now the CASP information appears with an error message. I guess I'm close now? XP

EDIT: Is the Sims3 CASP file that has an error message.

If it's an original Sims3 CASP file and you get an error now, then my guess would be you loaded the Medieval Wrapper and not the S3 CC to Medieval CASPart Wrapper. Is that possible?

Some general notes for people having problems with getting the correct wrapper:

This is the behavior in S3PE that I would expect:

For original S3 CASP files:
  • original S3PE wrapper => displays okay
  • Medieval CASP Wrapper => displays error
  • S3 CC to Medieval Wrapper => displays okay with message "WARNING: This is not a medieval CASP!" before CASP info (This is what you'll want when converting TS3 CC.)

For Medieval CASP files (original or already converted/flags changed):
  • original S3PE wrapper => displays error
  • Medieval CASP Wrapper => displays okay
  • S3 CC to Medieval Wrapper => displays okay

I'll go ahead and make a new post now for my tools. Hopefully with both files attached to the same entry, it will be less confusing which one to use.

might anyone be able to post it up or mail the file so I can drop it in the folder? Like I said I've never created things for sims programs, I have always just relied on you all and your wonderful work.

Glad you got it working, Anubis. I'm hoping that you will convert some of your curly hair styles real soon. BTW I will gladly test things for you if you need a guinea pig

Clothes are also convertible!
Now, I don't wish to get chided for uploading something not concerning this hairy issue; but thought I'd might let this in on someone whom might be able to take it further, as this 'hair converting' was a tip I actually managed to pull - and thus now have a dozen hairstyles in CAS (really, thanks to all of ye!)

Onto the matter - if you've got all the gadgets needed to convert hair as pointed out in the thread - you only need to do the same by:

1. opening the selected .package containing the garb

2. click on 'casp' for - then 'grid'

3. find 'clothingcategory' and set 'proffesion' to true (for safety's, one might deselect npc, as for it not to appear on just anybody), and close the box by clicking commit.

4. save

Also, all professions seem to be set on true at default, so I see no need to check if it is.

However, the big warning sign here is that far from all clothes work, as I've tried a few floor length dresses from All About Style - and only the newest seem to retain functionality.

Another bummer is that TSM doesn't include footwear (thanks, EA...), and ONLY has whole outfits, which really is a bummer if you wish to convert an ankle length or shorter dress, as demonstrated. Many dresses also lose their texture. If you use the newly released female default replacement skin, you're in for a surprise ... Haven't tested on males yet.

Oh, and another thing is that, a lot of dresses get this 'stuck hands' syndrome where their hands cinches in at their waist. AAB's older dresses all seemingly have this issue.

I closing, I'd like to mention how much of a help this thread, and whole TSM discussion in the first place, have, and has been. Thanks You really help even the most demure lurkers come out of the shell, it seems.

I have the same strange shading on my hair now. It's weird because I didn't change anything on the meshes/textures from the replacement version I did before (the one I've shown in the pic previously) so I guess there's some wrong or missing info on the files, I guess that simply enabling CAS parts is not enough :/

This seemed so easy when I started. . . Now I have absolutely no idea what I did wrong. D:
I know I didn't install anything wrong because I get that "THIS IS NOT A MEDIEVAL BLAHBLAH" thing.
I followed every step. . . I have the package in the right place. . . I made all the tings True, and now I wanna cry.
Can someone tell me PLEASE what I'm doing wrong? Because I can't tell. D: Sorry for complaining. < w > I know as soon as I find out what's wrong, it's gonna be something simple..

There's probably something we didn't set as true. . . Or some simple thing. :c

Hi all! This tutorial works for me, i convert many hairs, but most of it the sims have accesory colored eye.
For Globalprincess and Jbeyst: in several case, in the AgeGender category, the human line not set as true, and the hair not in the game. Check that.
(sorry, my english are very basic, i hope you understand. )

I did everything right, I copied the files to the right places, I downloaded the right files, I checked if the human line in the AgeGender was True, and my package doesn't show up in the game... I even tried to convert the same hair used in the tutorial...what do I do to fix it? Thank you!
