I'm having an issue with default replacement eyes. I've tried several different sets and I have the same problem each time.

When I load the game, all my Sims are unchanged with the same Maxis eyes. If I turn on testing cheats and take them back to CAS, the defaults show up. When I exit CAS, the defaults are showing up for that particular Sim in the game. I have to do this for each individual Sim to get the defaults to show in-game. It's quite tedious, and the whole reason I want defaults is so I don't have to do this.

Am I doing something wrong? Any suggestions?

I'm not too familiar with how defaults work in TS3, but if this happens in TS2 then deleting the cache files tend to work. Cache files save an image of sorts of the item, and may still show up even if the original item is gone or replaced. I know TS3 has cache files (possibly a lot of them), so it might be worth a try. I don't know which caches could be the problem, so you may want to consult a problemfinding tutorial for TS3.

If you're worried anything might get borked when deleting the files, you could do a backup of the files in "...Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3"

Yes, like already said above, if you already haven't tried deleting cache files...


...then try that. I had that same problem once a long time ago and way back then I had to even delete the cache files from the WorldCaches folder before the eyes worked. If all those sets are by the same creator, then it could be the eye files that are bad.

Thank you! I will try this and see if it helps.

Edit: It didn't work, but thank you anyway! I'll keep looking for a solution.
