Default Converting Hondo Ohnaka
Hello there,
I know the title may sound a little weird but I'm a huge Star Wars fan. Actually the Batuu Pack was my first one and the reason I started playing sims 4.
Since there is not much Star Wars CC, I started to deal with several Tutorials for Sims 4 Studio and Blender.
After a few changes of CC and ingame hair (for private use only as I don't have the permission to share it) I started a a heart's project to convert the costume for Hondo to single Items so he can be played as a fully functional sim without looking awkward.
And here's the first stumbling block. I'm having a hard time to get the head mesh to work as a hat like the other Batuu masks. Even serious trouble to get it to work in the first place. I tried different categories,
even tried weight paint tutorials but nothing seems to work. Also when I use weight transfer I am unable to join the meshs afterwards.

Any suggestions which tutorials to use or what could be the problem? Or maybe someone already did a conversion like this and has a quick instructions what to do?

Many many thanks! ❤❤❤❤
I found a Sims 4 weight control animation and found the issue. I did the weight transfer wrong. Then I had the problem that didn't know to adjust the weight. These Tutorials are really helpfull. Especially the one for how to manually assign the weight paint.

In the event you manage to complete this piece of CC, feel free to share it with the community here! I for one would be especially interested in such a thing
