This is a very simple tool to fix default replacement eyes, eyebrows, and makeup that were broken by the June 3 patch. Tested with human, pet, and occult eyes, and with human eyebrows.

To use, extract TS4DefaultsFixer_2_0_0_0.exe and DefaultCASPs.package from the zip to the same location and run TS4DefaultsFixer_2_0_0_0.exe. Select your default replacement package. When the tool is finished save as a new package with a new name. (Do not save over the original.) Replace the original package with the new one in your Mods folder.

Now supports texture-only default replacements. Will optionally remove shine.

Mac users: This site has a collection of fixed eye replacements by creators who are no longer active. https://maxismatchccworld.tumblr.co...fixed-for-patch

Notes:

- Eye Shine Removers conflict with eye packages fixed by this tool since they both replace the default eye color CASPs. You cannot use both.
- This is very quick and dirty, so please consider it to be beta-ish and report problems.
- Please save as a new package and keep the original just in case. Do not save with the same name as the original package - You'll get an error and it could ruin the original package.
- When fixing texture-only replacements, items in expansion/stuff packs that I don't have will probably not be fixed. I would need a copy of the CASPs for those items to include them.
- Windows only, sorry.

Technical:

With the new patch the EA eye and makeup RLE2 textures are now empty and there's another resource (type 0x2BC04EDF) with the same instance number that afaik is a new type. CASPs that link to textures seem to be looking for the new resource type first and using an RLE2 only if it doesn't find one. Default replacements that link to the EA texture TGIs are overridden by the 0x2BC04EDF resource with the same instance. The fix is to link to a texture with a new, custom TGI. That's my guess, anyway, I could easily be wrong.

Updates:

Version 2.2, 8/4/2020:
- Updated for new version of CASP in knitting patch. Needed for default replacements created after the patch.

Version 2.0, 6/7/20:
- Name change!
- Added support for eyebrows, lipstick, eyeliner, blush, and eyeshadow.
- Added support for texture-only replacements by copying the corresponding EA CASP.
- Added optional shine removal.

Version 1.2, 6/5/20: Turned on compression so converted packages should now not be bigger than the original.

Version 1.1, 6/5/20: That didn't take long! Now supports secondary eye colors.
