[size=4][color=indigo][b]What This Does:[/header1]

This very small file is not really a hack... all it does is fix the problem with the one cute little puff-sleeved dress for girls that came with Seasons. There was a problem with the linking of the material definitions, so instead of cutting out the alpha for the flowers on the sash and sandals, it would make those parts the same colour as the sim's skin - which looked really weird. This was due to, well, a mistake on Maxis's part, but this will fix it.

This file will not change any recolours you have made or downloaded for this outfit - only the 5 Maxis originals. Any new recolours you make after installing this file should have proper alpha flowers, and will not require this file for your recolours to work with proper alpha flowers for other people.

I'm not sure if it'll fix the flowers on any girls in your game currently wearing the outfit, so if you find the flowers are still skin-coloured after installing, change your girl's clothes into something else and then back into the dress.


Thanks to Quaxi and everyone who has contributed to the development of SimPE. Thanks also to Nouk for pointing me in the right direction for the original files to default-replace. And as always, a huge thanks to the rest of the MTS2 staff, especially Delphy, for giving me a place to learn how to do interesting stuff for pixel dollies.
