Default Any pointers much appreciated! (Mermaid ears conversion)
I'm trying to convert these TS3 mermaid ears to TS4, for personal use, or if I could get the creator's permission, perhaps to upload.



I got as far as converting the mesh,


but I can't seem to get the texture to work.



^ In this example I enlarged the texture to see if it even shows up on the mesh. It seems not to.

Please and thank you for any advice.

This happens if your texture doesn't conform to the format of TS4's 1024x2048 CAS template and instead uses a non-TS4 format (such as the original TS3 texture) - your accessory ends up with the TS4 sim body and face texture all over it.

There's an annotated copy of the TS4 CAS template here: http://sims4studio.com/thread/62/fix-uv-map-template . Where to put the texture will depend on what you cloned the ears as - if you cloned them as earrings, they must go in the area of the template allocated to earrings, if glasses, they must go in the area allocated to glasses, and so on. (And yes, the allocated areas really are that tiny. It's a real pain!)

def would make the mermaid mod 10x better! I would love them to add to my mermaids as I was trying to find some mermaid ears for the past week lol but I know that permissions are needed, so just keep up to date, but nice work!
