Initial release

A while ago I've noticed a weird shadow on the sim's belly if wearing one of two models of basegame tights. For the solid semitransparent ones the first black swatch was ok but the other four had this shadow and for striped ones all the swatches had it. While fixing this I've noticed also that the black solid tights missed their specular and region map so I've added them also. I didn't paint any new textures myself, only changed some instances via Sims 4 Studio.

What's included?

Separate files for solid semitransparent tights and for striped ones.

I've made the following changes:
  • replaced the ShadowMap instance number with a null one for all swatches of solid tights except the black one (it already had null and this gave me the idea of fixing this issue without painting a new shadow texture from scratch);
  • replaced the ShadowMap instance number with a null one for all swatches of striped tights - same as previous;
  • added the RegionMap instance number to the black swatch of solid tights - the other swatches had it so I copied it;
  • added the SpecularMap instance number to the black swatch of solid tights - same as previous, copied from the other swatches (I've previously checked if it was not as weird as the shadow was and it fitted the texture perfectly).
Only the CasPart resources were changed. The files are very small as they do not contain the original textures.
