Custom Content Shows up Incorrectly

This article lists all the ways your custom content might not show up properly and links to specific articles on each of those issues.


Hair

Do custom hairstyles show up incorrectly? Are you seeing bunny heads, bald heads, blank heads (a big hole in the head where the hair and scalp should be), or Maxis default styles? For men you'll see the short cropped "afro" style and for women you'll see the basic straight middle-parted hair.

If you are getting any of those symptoms, you are missing the mesh for those items. To get them to show up properly, you will need to download the right mesh and install it properly. For more information, see:


Clothing

Do custom clothing items show up incorrectly? Are you seeing Maxis defaults in place of your custom clothing, like the red shirt with white capris pants and sneakers?

If so, you are missing the mesh for those items. To get them to show up properly, you will need to download the right mesh and install it properly. For more information, see:


Incorrect Thumbnails

Are the thumbnails for your items showing up incorrectly? Are you getting the wrong outfit, hairstyle, sim, etc. showing up in the thumbnail picture, but the item works properly?

If so, you need to regenerate the thumbnails.

In the game, you can generally regenerate thumbnails by CTRL-clicking on the thumbnail picture. If that does not work, or if there are many items showing up incorrectly, you can force all your thumbnails to regenerate by following the instructions at:

If you are experiencing blurry, pixellated, or crunchy thumbnails, that may be a symptom of a more serious issue with your graphics card. For more details on that particular issue, please see:


Nude Sim Bodies

If you have nude sim bodies showing up in the wrong categories, you have fallen victim to a Pets bug, even if you don't have Pets. For more information, please see:


Blue Flashing Accessories

This is yet another bug associated with Pets. For more information, please see:


Blue Flashing Objects

This can be due to a few different causes. For more information, please see:
