Sims 4 Studio for Windows (Wishes) | Sims 4 Studio (1)

New in version
Added support for all packs up to the High School EP and SDX content. There is also a batch fix for CC beds that broke with the High School Years patch and one to remove fashion tags from CAS items (currently these tags can cause error 532 when saving).

Sims 4 Studio for Windows (Wishes) | Sims 4 Studio (3)
There are four batch fixes in this update.
1. Update LRLE Images (Werewolf patch) - this fixes textures on any hair, skin detail, skin tone (or anything else affected by this image problem) you have that was broken with the recent patch.
2. Update Hairs for Color Slider Compatibility - makes hairs that aren't compatible with the color slider mod color slider compatible. This will work on older hairs that weren't made compatible to begin with and on hairs that were previously run through another application's batch fix to turn broken LRLEs back into RLE2s (please see note(*) below).
3. Update Sliders (Werewolf patch) - this updates slider mods rendered non-functional in the latest patch.
4. Disable Shoes for Werewolves - this updates shoe packages to use the new shoe settings that prevent werewolves from using them.

Sims 4 Studio for Windows (Wishes) | Sims 4 Studio (4)

These are beta batch fixes. We have tested them, but due to the great variety in Sims 4 custom content, there could still be issues we did not encounter in our tests.

If you discover something that was fixed incorrectly please do the following:

1. Send me the broken package, so I can see what went wrong and fix it.

2. Copy the contents of your batchfix backup folder and paste it into your mods folder. This will reverse all changes that were made by the batch fix, returning your content to the way it was before you ran the batch fix. Your batchfix backup folder is here: Documents/Sims 4 Studio/Batch Fixes

*Please note: if you have previously run a batch-fix process using some other application that converted all your LRLEs back to RLE2s, then you will need to run the batch fix named Update Hairs for Color Slider Compatibility. This will convert your RLE2 images to LRLE images compatible with the color slider mod.


1. What should I do if my hairs were previously compatible with the color sliders and were messed up by the latest patch? -> Run the Update Slider Compatible Hair (Werewolf patch) batch fix

2. What should I do if I fixed my messed up hairs by running a batch fixer that made them look right but stopped them from working with the color sliders? -> Run the Update Hairs for Color Slider Compatibility batch fixer

3. What should I do if one of the Studio batch fixers messed up my content? -> Copy the contents of your batchfix backup folder and paste it into your mods folder. This will reverse all changes that were made by the batch fix, returning your content to the way it was before you ran the batch fix. Your batchfix backup folder is here: Documents/Sims 4 Studio/Batch Fixes
