This tutorial has nothing to do with ANYTHING flashing blue but accessories. Objects flashing blue are unrelated to this!

Thank you!
I had began to think I'd just simply never get to use accessories again. This is great. Thank you to all involved in fixing this problem. Hooray!

Danaouli - It's actually -really- easy. I think you're getting stuck on terminology - the mesh file says "I have these two parts" - like a label on a box that says "Contents: Apples and Bananas" but then when the game actually goes and looks at what's in there, it's only got one part - the box just has Apples. So you take the placeholder - just a little piece of scrap paper - and write "Bananas" on it. The game looks in the box, sees some apples and a piece of paper that says Bananas, and goes, "Well, that's close enough, very well then," and everything works fine.

Would love to get my hands on the placeholderobj.rar file, as *** is down, and fix my meshes.

Does anyone know if it's available elsewhere?

Default hood and cape flashing blue
I have a cape and a hood flashing blue in game, found in the glasses accessory section. But when I open them in SimPE, they do not have SHPE or GDMC files associated. Did SimPE change the file names? I have 3DIR, BINX, CLST, TXMT, XMOL, STR#, and TXTR files, but no GDMC or SHPE listed in the tree. Am I being unobservant?

The hood and cape are from The Guild Masters "The Dark Project" collection, called the dark princess hood and the dark princess cape. They are attached.

A little late for a response to you, ctsensenbaugh, but it appears that there isn't a mesh in that archive that you uploaded. This fix is for the mesh of the accessory itself. Hunt down the meshes in your game and then try the fix.

now i feel very stupid indeed. Yes that wasn't the mesh file, and finding and correcting the actual mesh file was the key. Thank you for your reply I was able to fix them in my game.

I'm so grateful for this tutorial, I was about to give up on accessories installed in my game and that would really be a pity as I need them all to give Sims the unique/unusual look. Thank you so much, HP. I'm still testing if Peggy's 3d lashes were fixed, but many other accessories work perfectly now.

I've read this & it sounds like I would try it cause, it's explained well. However, when I click on the object place holder link, it does not open the page. Anyways maybe it's just temporarily out of service. Thanks a lot for your hard work.
