CC hair issue - streaks in hair
« on: June 10, 2018, 10:26:58 PM »
So a lot of my cc hairs are having an issue. In CAS they look perfectly fine and great. Once in game, unless i'm insanely zoomed in, white lines appear on the hair. These are many different cc hair meshes from different creators. I messed with my graphics settings and that didn't seem to do anything. I strongly believe somethings wrong on my end rather than the cc being bad because i can't seem to find a solution anywhere, not even one person who has the same issue. If anyone could help me, please any advice is welcome! Thanks.  Once again, not all of the cc hairs do this.

In game options, turn off laptop mode, if on. If you've tried that, you may need to troubleshoot your mods. This means move your mods folder to the desktop delete the localthumbcache.package from the Sims 4 folder. This helps clear up some game glitches and will help to make sure there isn't any issues with mods or cc. Like mods/cc that are outdated or no longer in game.

If the game runs well without the mods folder. This most likely means that it is outdated mod or cc. This can happen as we get updates for the games, some mods and custom content become outdated. You'll need to to go through your mods folder to find what needs to be replaced.

Also, streaks in hair sometimes happen when the hair is conflicting with something else the sim is wearing, anything from cc skin, clothing, and/or jewelry.

If none of the above help, you may need to go to one or more of the creator's site for support to see if they have any other tips.

Thanks for your help! I've removed all mods but this one hair and it's still resulting in fine white lines. I've also deleted the localthumbcache.package before and it didn't help. i feel like if it was the mod, the creators would know about it and others would have the same issue. i cannot find one person with the same issue. The blonde streaks that other people have had are very different than the ones happening in my game. In some other cases the lines will show on the seams of cc clothing, when i zoom out. Also, i have a very good graphics card and my default settings are on ultra. I've tried lowering my graphics and nothing worked. If the mod is broken, then why does it look fine in other people's game and it seems to just be me with this specific issue? I don't think its the cc nor the game i think it's something going wrong on my end. I've been trying to find a solution for weeks and cannot find anyone who knows what the problem is. Also, the creators will not get back to me so they are of no help.

Have you thought about posting your issue on the Official Forums in their modding section? I really cant help anymore than MrsFlynn's suggestions so I'm sorry about that.

I have issues similar to that. Zoom out and the hair looks streaked and like you said, zoomed in and it is fine.  I have removed all cc hair for now and will be getting a new computer.  I am so cutting down on cc after getting this computer.

I've posted on the official forum and no one seems to know the issue. Everyone is recommending reaching out to the creators, which I've done, but none of them respond.  :( oh well. i guess i'll just have to live without those custom hairs. Thanks for your help (:

I've tried to search on this issue. If the tips posted above and in the thread I posted a link to doesn't work that may mean there may not be a true fix or work-around for the issue, as some mods/cc work differently on different computers, due to the different configurations. This is why the tips work for some and not for others. I read a few players saying that.

If the creator doesn't have a support forum, is hard to contact or no longer supporting the cc, then the problem cc needs to be taken out of game if it's not working.
