That sounds all kinds of wrong, doesn't it? :D
This is a beta test thread for Mac users and maybe Linux users who are having a problem with the morphing penis mod, in which the penis disappears, leaving a hole. I've also gotten reports of the whole nude bottom disappearing or appearing as the EA Barbie version.
Here's a pic:
This is a known problem with Sims 3 on Mac affecting some custom meshes. In the pic above it's also affecting his hair which shouldn't look like only a black scalp. Deleting caches and restarting often fixes it, but it happens again.
I want to see if a solution can be found, but need testers since I don't have a Mac and don't want to buy one just for this. In order to help, you'll have to visit here regularly, download modified penis meshes and possibly other test meshes, report back after playing with them for a few days and a few restarts of the game, and report any changes that may happen later on.
This is an intermittent problem and going back and forth with test meshes and getting results will take time.
I have one idea so far that I'll work on as soon as I'm sure I'll have someone to test it. Please comment below to volunteer and to report results, questions, problems, etc.
Test 1: Dec. 9, 2013
This is testing the possibility that the intersection of two mesh parts is causing the problem. I've modified the penis mesh so it is entirely outside the lower body mesh. This isn't all that much of an improvement in appearance since the penis will 'float' without being attached to the body, but the idea is to see if it's reliably visible before I go to the time and effort involved in joining it to the body without any intersection. The test package is adult map 1 only. Please remove other am penis mods and clear caches when installing. If possible please test on both fat and non-fat sims since the fat morph may cause intersection. Report results as soon as the penis disappears, if it does. If it's visible, please test for at least a few days before reporting results. Thanks!
NonWindows test package 1 - am map1 only
Sorry I haven't kept up with this - the truth is I still have no clue why this happens. More info might help - could you Mac users tell me about other CC/mods you have problems with? It would be helpful to hear about any clothing, hair, and accessory mods that have disappearing parts like this one. Thanks!
