Rainncandy did you read the VERY top. Go get the patch. Go remake your recolor. Problem solved.

I downloaded the Patch, but it said you have to have Pets for it to work, and I don't have Pets. So exactly what patch am I supposed to download that will make me be able to use skins that were made with the Pets Bodyshop? I didn't see anything like that on that site.

Plus, I'm not trying to recolor anything. I just want to be able to use skins that were made with the Pets bodyshop.

So in answer to your first question, the answer is yes, you'd have to fix all those spots. The real solution is to get the person who _made_ the content you have to fix it. It's far more reliable for hair or skins, which have a lot of things to change to use the fixed bodyshop to make the item than to try and go and hand-edit all those locations. They should still have their source pics, making a new recolor will take them a matter of minutes.

Rainncandy: The patch for the Pets EP version of Body Shop will not correct existing files, to change those one will have to manually alter every file with SimPE as detailed in the first post of this thread. The experience I have had in downloading files has been greatly aided by using version 0,58 (no letter) of SimPE and doing a folder scan of all the new downloads. Version 0,58 has fewer bugs than 0,58b, so you should use it. Version 0,58 does not recognise Pets EP made files and tags them as "Unknown Version" - this will help identify the problem files, so you can correct them with SimPE at your leisure.

In every area that I have looked and compared files made prior to the release of Pets and after, the parts= and priority= tags seem to show up. It harms nothing to add the outfit= tag to anything, whereas removing or renaming the parts= and priority= tags seems to either render files useless or causes them to no longer to be compatible with Pets EP and future releases. Granted, I have not tested every file released since Pets EP came out, but I have tested the method exhaustively on various versions of the game on both PCs and Macs - so I am confident that this is the safe and prudent means to correct any misbehaving file. Other people have had success with renaming the parts= tag, but I have not been able to duplicate their success consistently with every version of the game.

Of especial note (but off topic to this thread) people without Pets EP should be especially wary of downloading any beds, sofas, chairs, garden items, curtains, etc released in the community after the release of Pets EP. Many of this new custom content contains strings (interactions) for pets that flat screw up your game's world if you do not have Pets EP installed. Many custom content creators are not particularly meticulous in making it clear that their item is Pets EP Only.

Try reading the manual that came with your game. Pets are created in Create a Family/Sim only. And obviously a pet cannot work in games without the EP. This thread is for discussing making _clothing recolors _ that already should be compatible with other eps (like stuff that came with the base game) be that way.

My value is "0x00000008"! Is it okay? Or do I have to change it to "0x00000004"?

It's "gilysse" with a small "g"..

Sorry but I am no longer open for suggestions.

Use the value that your particular recolor uses. Just duplicate the 'parts' thing and change the copy to 'outfit' (so that you have both parts and outfit with the same value)
If you're making new recolors, patch your pets bodyshop and you won't have to do this anymore.

Well 2gb is more than 200 mb. SO you should be fine, but I expect you haven't defragmented your computer lately, if your system is actually complaining, so your 2 gb is in little pieces. Look for a defrag utility on your system if that's the case.

added additions and commentary to the first post to clarify the limits of the patch for Pets EP Body Shop and added information for an alternate means to correcting thumbnails for those persons with few problem files.

Thanks tiggerypum, you're right, I haven't defragmented my computer lately. I will defragment it soon and see if it works this time this is really useful for me!!

I wrote a script in R that can detect which packages were created with the old (and wrong) version of the Pets EP Body Shop.

Thanks to Delphy (that guided me in the labirinth of the DBPF format) and dmchess (for his perl code).

Thank you very much for this! I was trying to make it a long time ago. Never would imagine it wasn't that difficult. Thanks for making it easier!

I just wanted to Thank You for posting this tutorial. I had downloaded an outfit and was trying to find it in Bodyshop so that I could put it on a Sim. I was unable to locate the outfit in Bodyshop anywhere, when I looked for it in the game I saw it as a Nude body, I followed your steps and now it shows up like it is supposed to so Thank You.
