I noticed the other day while creating a new Sim in CAS that there was a problem with the new lip rings.
The mesh for the right lip ring on men and the left lip ring on women are inside out!
Well I've hopefully fixed that now with this package. I've tested it out in my game and the lip rings are now the right way out.

I've uploaded this in the testing section because I haven't tested it in anybody elses game and its the first time I've made a replacement package from scratch.
Please report any problems to me if you find any, which I hope you wont.

To use just unzip the package file and place it in your Downloads folder.

Ah, Maxis... the funny things you forget to fix... remeinds me of the Nightlife goggle problem and the *STILL* annoying flashing blue accesory Pet expansion problem....


Thanks for fixing this-- I thought my graphics card was causing the problem.

Yes, there are all kinds of piercings now. Unfortunatly, teens cannot wear them (or am I missing something?).

Awesome. I actually didn't even notice this and thought this was a fix for the fact that you can't layer the lip rings (what's up with that?). But now that I've seen it, it bothers the heck out of me! Thanks for the fix =).

I think it sucks that we can't layer the peircings hopefully someone can fix that *hint* *hint*

I would, but I don't know what values have to be changed to do that. I'm new to this modding stuff. Normally I just make recolours and modified meshes.

So far, it seems to me that the lip ring layering thing is going to need to be fixed in one of two ways:
a) Someone extracts all the lip rings (maybe the nose rings and brow rings, too) and combines the meshes in various ways.
b) Someone adds two more lip ring (might as well do it for the nose rings and brow rings, too) categories that still show up under Misc and put all the left in one new category and all the right in the other new category, leaving the middle in the old category. I don't know how feasible this one is though.

I've been too busy actually playing the game, and playing Neverwinter Nights, to be messing a whole lot in the nuts and bolts of the game.

cool fix but i thought this was a fix for the fact the rings sit too low when on the side..
I wonder if someone would fix this.. *hint* *hint* *wink* *wink*
