I just released a new version of the Color Magic tool for doing recolors on clothing items (and potentially hair/tattoo/makeup/etc.)
The previous versions have been somewhat buggy and have failed in some interesting ways. This version fixes some of the known bugs.
You can find Color Magic at my site Sims4 Stuff n Things
Also, for those who have had the issue where the recolor you created causes the demo to crash when you hover over the swatch, there is a potential work-around.
I was able to follow these steps to "fix" a recolor that crashed:
- Load the faulty item in S4PE
- Find the CASP entry and double click it
- Check the Use Resource Name checkbox
- Type in the unique name you used in Color Magic And then ADD something to it. I used an extra _ character before the color name.
- Hit the FNV-64 button
- Hit OK
- Save and close S4PE
Please let me know, either here, or at the download link above if this does or does not work to fix the swatch hover crashes you may be seeing.
P.S.: If you have a recolor that crashes, please post at Sims4 Stuff n Things
what the CASP resource's Instance value from S4PE is. If we can gather enough of these numbers, we might be able to figure out why they cause the crash.
P.P.S: It seems that some versions of S4PE won't work with the above process.
An alternative is to use the CTRL-F command in S4PE and put the new name in the "Text to hash" box and hit calculate. Copy the number from the FNV64 box, then double click on the CASP and paste in the Instance box.
