Flashing Blue Accessories

Problem

Accessories (glasses, or other items that show up under glasses) are flashing blue on your sims when you enter the lot. This is most noticeable on custom accessories, though it does occasionally effect the Maxis vampire fangs which are selectable as an accessory if you have Nightlife.

Users reporting this problem generally have the Pets and/or Seasons expansions.

Solution

If the accessories on your sims are flashing blue when you enter your lot, you can fix it for that play session by doing a 'change appearance' on that sim.

Suggested fix:

  • Remove accessories from the Sims on the lot.
  • Save and quit.
  • Restart your computer.
  • Now come back into the game and you can put them back on the sim.

Some users have had persistent problems and had to change appearance every time they went back to the lot.

This particular problem does not happen for all Pets/Seasons owners, nor for all accessories or even certain accessories at all times. We have not yet determined why this happens, and there is no word on a patch or fix from Maxis/EA.
