I have looked for it but I cannot find the post I saw this in. Someone said
that people have had trouble with customised skins due to the fact that some
people haven't added the toddler part of the skin. Just a question on that,
if I were to have problems with a skin I downloaded, would the skin fix
itself up after the toddler stage? (Just going by what people have been
saying I mean). Its just that I saw a thread in binaries with some very odd
looking people, they mouths had moved to other parts of their heads and
stuff. Like a small skin had been used on a big mesh for a head. I just
don't want this problem if I can help it.
Thanks,
Beck.

It's fairly easy to fix the skin itself through Bodyshop - though a bit
fiddly. You won't be able to fix it for an existing sim without difficulty
though I think you can do this through SimPE but I'm not sure you can change
the genetics - I've seen a tute for this and that is complicated. If the
skin doesn't cause the game to crash in the first place, I should think it
would fix itself as the sim ages and accesses the new textures for the older
age groups. With the Maxis-made skin bug, this is what happens.

Oh ok. I haven't had any problems yet lol.
Hey, I just put a whole heap of downloads into my game and went in to see
which I would like to keep and delete (I have way too many), and I found a
pair of black pants 5 times and all were exactly the same. Would it be ok to
delete 4 of them, or were there 5 for a reason? Just thought you may know
more about downloads. Thanks again,
Beck.

mmmm - do they, in fact, look like copies of Maxis clothes?

If so, what you have are corrupted skin files. This can happen for various
reasons. Alternatively, how did you install them - were they from zip files
which you put manually in Downloads or were they from a self-installing
Sims2Pack file?

Just to add, there are a few of these instances, tops, pants, hair styles
(all the same type and colour), so I meant to ask about them all.

So far I haven't seen a Maxis version of these things (the copies) so I am
assuming they aren't. I am not 100% sure if they were zips or
self-installing files. I have an option to delete these copies, but I just
don't want to stuff things up.
Say I have a pair of black jeans in an adult sim, if I were to delete these
would it stuff the game up? I'll try and explain what I mean but I may not
be able to make much sense here:
If you click on a toddler and set their clothes and face etc etc, then you
go back and click onto a child, it just takes your preferences and makes
them into a child, am I right there? If so, does deleting a set of clothes
in one age group affect the rest of that Sims life? (sorry I am not good at
explaining this).
Thanks,
Beck.

Sorry Maxon, I just had a good look through my skins and some are in fact
copies of Maxis originals.
So if I have corrupted skin files, is there any way to fix this?
I did notice a few of them weren't copies of the maxis ones though...
Sorry to be a pest. But thank you for you help with this.
