    I'm having this same issue! I searched through the forums and this is the only post I've found about it. Unfortunately no one has replied saying what the issue might be. I noticed it only happens with the cc clothes but not the hair. If anyone has any information on this it'd be much appreciated! For now, no cc clothes :|

    Your sim is glowing? Maybe they're a twilight vampire?

    It's bad cc. Delete it and you should be fine.

    I don't believe it's just bad cc, or all of my cc would be bad. I found others who have the same problem and don't even have the same cc.

    No one seems to be suffering from it who doesn't have CC. So it's a CC issue. It would be nice and easy if it were specific pieces but that doesn't seem to be the case unfortunately. Hopefully the March patch will help clear up the majority of the CC issues.

    Maybe the site you downloaded for gives bad cc

    I've been having this problem as well. I thought it was just some bad CC I downloaded that I could delete, but even once I removed that skirt, the sim's skin was still all shiny and glowly and my friends say it looks like she jumped in a bunch of lube. And even once I did remove all CC, her skin was still glowing. My other sim has the same issue as well. But I haven't had it happen to anyone except Young Adult/Adult/Elder Females. My younger girls and boys have never had this issue.

    And I download all my CC from TSR. I have a few pieces that aren't TSR but I had had those in my game for a while before this error happened.

    I have this issue too! I wouldn't say it's "glowing" but makes the only sim all shiny, and not in a good way!

    it's still a bad CC, even if people laught at it
    the CC is not correctly assigned or there are some parts missing
    had that too few times as i still used CC

    the only cure is to find which CC is causing it & remove it
    maybe tell the maker that his CC is bad

    I have had the same issue and I have seen the cc be used by other people who use PC and have no problem. I dont think the cc is bad but it just doesnt work right for my mac. I have alerted the maker of the cc but there are so many people who have no problem with their cc. I got mine from a featured artists on TSR and Ive read reviews, I honestly think PC ppl dont have this issue as much as we do (mac users). Ive been looking all over for a fix to this but I cant find one. Ive taken out the cc for right now and everything is fine but I want to use the cc that I downloaded! no one makes the style I like, like this person on TSR so I need to know what part could be missing for macs so I can fix it/have it fixed. please help!!!

    Make sure you have your game patched to the latest update.
  • KDKD Posts: 3 New Member
    i do. i just bought my game and i got it through origin digitally, they automatically update. i dounble checked to make sure that feature was on so thats not the problem.
  • lilmiszceelilmiszcee Posts: 47 Member
    Yeah I don't think anything is wrong with the CC either because other people use it fine. My game is always up to date. I don't use much CC anymore. Only the few that I found to work.
  • green_maugreen_mau Posts: 389 Member
    Maybe the sim wanted to "shine" ya know what i mean? ;)
  • KDKD Posts: 3 New Member
    i just hope there can be a simple fix to it. but a maker of cc told me she didnt use the correct map for the cc which is why it might not work on macs...i dont know what that meant but hopefully it will be fixed soon. sims is great but its awesome with cc. Who doesnt want to shine a little? thats fine, just not all the time. gotta save some shine for everyone else. lol

    You're good to go now.

  • BluebellFloraBluebellFlora Posts: 6,750 Member
    This is only happening to users with certain pieces of CC and who play on Macs. The only solution is to play without CC. It's still worth listing your CC and the source to see if you can all narrow it down a bit :)

    It's a CC skin tone surely?
