Some males have missing penis textures

Some males will only have a black penis, but others will show normal ones.

 

I tried changing the soft and hard penis type in WW, it changes the shape but the texture continues black.

 

What am I doing wrong? 

 

First if you have [BB]Better Bodies installed

All the male parts are broken and the only one still working is the female tops.

The skin tones file is also broken so delete that one plus anything for males.

 

Next is pubic hair:

If you apply pubic hair to some sims in CAS but not others WW Pubic Hair Growth can cause problems.

It's found in the WW Nudity Menu and is best to just disable them IMO.

 

If the penis is totally black it means you have a broken cc skin tone in use.

Thank you!

 

The problem was solved by changing skin tone manually.

 

I didn't know BB was broken. I just deleted the whole folder. It didn't really fix the problem. But it's better to remove broken mods.

 

I don't really understand how these mods work... when you get a CC skin tone, how do you use it? In CAS there are only the default ones. In 'skin details' none was selected...

Those are just EA skin tones not cc skins.

 

Default CC Skins don't show up in CAS because all sims use the same one.

Non-Default Skins, and Overlays, are selected in CAS, Face Menu then Body Details, this is where the RS-12-F Overlays are found too.

You should also see Wild Guy's Female Body Details, Skins, and maybe some other face or body details.

Sending two samples of what I like best, 1 M and 1 F.

If you use a default cc skin you can't use non-default overlays on top of them.

 

This mod needs to load before WW.

Btw, when I randomize the sim, the penis is still black, but the sim skin tone color changes. It only has a proper penis texture when I select the EA skin tone. Does that mean I have multiple default skins? Every sim I download comes with a tray and mods folder; but I don't really look into what's inside it...

Multiple default skins can cause problems too.

It also happens when you have broken default cc skins from older creations, or just older skins.

Remember EA had a skin tone patch not long ago and it broke all cc skins which cause the black penis.

The workaround was choosing a different EA skin tone color until fixed.

This is what I meant by using only skin overlays instead as they didn't get broken.

 

The easiest way to get duplicate cc makeup, clothing, and broken sins is by downloading custom made sims.

Some of them even include parts of old versions of Wicked Whims or Wild Guys and others.

 

I always look carefully at what cc is included with them and remove skins and skin tones and mods that don't belong.

The trick for using the included cc makeup, clothing, shoes, etc., is copying them all into the same folder in mods by categories.

 

Your mods folder should look something like this:

 

C:/user name/Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 4/Mods/

 

Basemental Drugs

Body Details_Wild Guy

CC Clothing Female (or just use 'Clothing' without the gender added)

CC Clothing Male

CC Hair Female

CC Hair Male

CC Jewelry

CC Clothing Female

CC Clothing Male

CC Makeup

CC Shoes

LittleMsSam Quick Shower & Bath

MCCC

Skin Overlays Non Default 

WickedWhimsMod

Wicked Animations

Wicked Toys and Sex Objects

Wicked Porn TV Channel

Resource.cfg (Created by the Game leave it alone)

 

Everything downloaded should be installed into a folder with no loose files.

Now when you download a custom sim you can look through their included cc content and move them into the proper folders.

Don't move anything else like TURBODRIVER files if they are included.

When in doubt, leave it out.

If you already have the cc installed it will just overwrite the other one.

But you'll get a warning about existing file overwrites.

Look at the files dates and sizes and always keep the newest versions.

When finished just delete the unused leftovers in the custom downloaded sims mods

Then just copy the Tray files into the Tray folder.

 

You might have some duplicate cc installed already so to find out easily...

Look for the WickedWhimsInfoLog.log file in your TS4 folder.

Open it and scroll down past all your mods/cc to find the 'Possible Duplicate Files' entry and it should be 0.

If not you need to hunt them down and put them in a folder as mentioned above.

 

Sorry for the wall of text but lots of info to cover...

 

I have enough cc content installed that I can make any sim in my game look equal or better than the downloads available.

It's not hard to do once you have enough cc makeup, hairstyles, jewelry, etc., to work with.

With 100 sims you'll end up using some of the same things on other sims.

Doesn't matter with some things like cc eyelashes as I want them on all my sims anyway.

The tough one is Alpha Hairstyles as it's hard to find 100 different ones that I like.

Some sims get the same hairstyle but in different colors or use EA hairs instead.

OMG, my installation is a mess... Possible Duplicated Mod Files (128); also the mods folder has over 1k loose files. Well... as long as it works... xP

 

I wanted to use only the skin overlays, but it seems like it's the custom made sims creator's choice, right? 

 

From now on, I will look into the mods folder and remove any skin/ww mods; or put them in a temp folder to see if it breaks anything

 

Thanks for the time you put into your answer; it's very informative

Until it doesn't, lol.

Good Luck.

 

You are right. This "Ain't broke don't fix it" mentality is a liability and a bad habit. I thought about sorting everything out, but I don't see an easy way to sort 1k files manually. And I can't really automate it (no coding skills). My best bet is to use your recommendations from now on and revert any future modifications to the game if something gets broken. And avoid updating the game or WW =(

Nope, no easy way, just takes some time, patience, and the desire.

 

Don't look at the whole mess and get overwhelmed by the size of the job.

You don't have to do it all at once.

Pick at some each day and start with the most obvious file names like makeup or clothing, or shoes.

Create a new folder for the category and make a start.

You might be surprised how fast it goes as some things are grouped together and you can cut/paste multiple files at once.

Maybe you don't catch all of them the first time around but you can do stragglers later.

If you don't know what something is or where to put it just leave it alone.

@joethebeast That last post from Scorpio is some excellent advice.

 

Looking at the "big mess" can be discouraging. But look at the big picture instead - once you have all your mods sorted out and organized properly, troubleshooting is much easier. It also lessens the amount of possible duplicates you could end up with.

As Scorpio mentioned, just whittle away at it a little at a time and before you know it, the entire job is done and your modding life will be much easier.

 

Think of it more as a long term project as opposed to 'I have to get it all done in one sit down'.
