Default How to change age and gender flags in S4PE
Originally posted by CmarNYC here -- I’m only C+Ping it to make it easy to find. Thanks, Cmar! =)

Use the latest version of s4pe, select the CASP, and click the Grid button.



Look for the AgeGender line and the value next to it. The circled four digits control the gender and age the hair is valid for. The first digit controls the gender. Use '1' for male, '2' for female, and '3' for unisex. You can just change the number and click Commit, then save.

A quick reference for the Age (last two hex digits), in case that's also useful:

Baby = 01,
Toddler = 02,
Child = 04,
Teen = 08,
YA = 10,
Adult = 20,
AdultYA = 30,
Elder = 40,
AdultElder = 60,
YAandUp = 70,
TeenAndUp = 78,
AllAges = 7F
8 users say thanks for this. (Who?)

If I'm not mistaken, that tutorial tells people to make a full clone only to change that one flag. That is unecessary -- all you need is the CASP, not duplicates of everything else. Even in those cases where the mesh needs editing (to make it fit around the scalp), you still wouldn't need all of the textures.

Sorry, I only saw your answer now .
So if I understand, I just clone one texture?

Casp no longer works with the new patch pools.

@Nikkkita, did you use s4pe 0.2c or 0.2d? If it was the former, you might want to try again – there was an s4pe update just a couple hours ago: https://github.com/Kuree/Sims4Tools/releases

No, if all you want is change a gender flag all you need is the CASP. Not textures or anything else. Can look at these uploads for a working example:

http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=538974
http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=537906

(Mine’s still cloned from less-than-recent game files, but the only change in CASP that I know about was one additional field, the rest should still work the same)

Possibly with Color Magic? I haven't used it in a while so I don't know. Otherwise, you can use any cloning tool and just delete all the other resources using s4pe.

Please do not PM me with mod, tutorial, or general modding questions or problems; post them in the thread for the mod or tutorial or post them in the appropriate forum.

By "cloning" I simply meant export the CASP you want to a new file/package in s4pe. But yeah you can also use the override feature of some other tool and then delete the rest you don't need, if that makes it easier for you.

ColorMagic is also up and working again btw, I think there was no announcement (not in the thread over here I mean).

Thanks for the tips.
I do not know if I understand, but if I need the textures and mesh, I clone normally , but if I want to just change the gender, I just need the CASP, mean I have to know where to find that CASP already contains all this information and only have to change the flag. Is that?

I'm hoping someone can help me because I'm going crazy. I use S4pe to go in and change the gender flags in casp. If I change from male to female everything works out fine. If I change from female to male or unisex the content shows shows up in the "mods window" when the game starts up, but when I go the window where a sim given hair and dressed, the content doesn't show up in the options. I've tried hair, clothing and accessories. I've changed the casp from 2078 to 1078, and then to 3078, I am pretty inexperienced at modding but this doesn't seem like a very difficult proposition.

Maybe post your package? Hard to tell what it could be without seeing that.

I have a chance to use another computer with sims and s4pe on it, edited the cas file and it worked. So I reinstalled programs on my computer and it works.
