Expanded Tattoo Doesn't seem to work right for me.

Post by no.1froggie » November 28th, 2016, 2:12 pm

I've had this mod for a while and have had issues with it from the beginning. I had recently in the last month or two gone through and redownloaded all of my mods from this site since several had been updated. This one still seems to not work right. A few times it worked great but most of the time this is what it is doing. I downloaded some new tattoo templates that use the full body part of this mod. When I try using the full body the tattoo doesn't change. it goes on just as if I never clicked that option. Then when I try using the added areas for a tattoo they don't go where it is supposed to. For example, I tried putting a tattoo on a man and one on a woman on the rib area, instead it stays on the chest which was the first option it was on when I first clicked on the chest tab. I can't get it to move to the ribs. I've tried other areas as well and its the same. :( Thank you for your time and suggestions :)

Hi there. Let's check for missing (or too many) ingredients first, if we could.

1 - Please confirm that you are not using CMarNYC's XCAS, the core mod version, as available from MTS. It is not compatible with MC Expanded Tattoo as she has her own version of handling tattoo locations within in her core mod (incidentally, this is what I use instead of MC Tattoo).

2 - Please confirm that, in addition to MC Expanded Tattoo, you have (of course) the base MC Mod for your patch level and the special cmar_XCAS_TattooLocations_v2 file as shown on the page below. This is the non-core version of what we are using here, MC ExpTatt just provides an MC and CAS interface into the new locations. Both files from this page, assuming I've pointed you to the right one for your patch level, are needed.
<a href="http://nraas.wikispaces.com/MasterContr ... +Twelve</a>

3 - How are you getting these sims into an interface to work on their tattoo placements? If it's a MC command (MC > Sim > Basic > Tattoo), then the above two files should do it. If you are trying to get a sim into some element of CAS not involving a MC command, such as an in-game interface like a tattoo chair or you are working with Create a Household (CAH), then the MC Integration module will also be needed. EA's version CAS will not honor the new locations because it doesn't understand anything about them; MC Integration will force MC versions of CAS and its subsets across all aspects of the game.

4 - And if all of the above are (or are not, as indicated) in place, try deleting your five cache files in the TS3 game folder. They will regenerate on the next loadup; let's see if that helps things along.

I checked and I do not have the CMarNYC's XCAS. I do have the base MC mod as well as the MC Expanded Tattoo, however the cmar_XCAS_TattooLocations_v2 I do not have. That's required? I may have missed it when getting the files. I will get that file downloaded and let you know the outcome :)

Yes, thank you, it was bc I didn't have the 2nd link on the download page. It seems to be working now. Not sure how I missed it when I went through updating all of them :)

I've just uploaded the required cmar companion file (again?). Not sure why that one keeps seeming to run away from home on us, but it's available now on the MC add-on page and here.
