Nude Sim Bodies Bug

Among the bugs included in the Pets expansion was an extremely weird one... The version of Body Shop that installs with Pets was changed in such a way that almost all creations made by creators with the Pets expansion pack will not work right for those without that expansion. Body Shop creations made by Pets expansion owners will show up for non-Pets owners as full body nude thumbnails, and will not function properly in non-Pets games.

This has been corrected for creators by Maxis/EA in a patch for Body Shop. If you are a creator, you can get the patch here: http://thesims2.ea.com/help/index.php?pid=Help

That patch will NOT fix existing creations made with an unpatched Pets Body Shop, nor should anyone who does not have Pets install that - it will not fix any nude sim thumbnails and make those creations usable for you.

If you do not have the Pets expansion and you would like those items to work for you, you have three options:

  • If you are fairly experienced with SimPE you can use it to fix those items for you. For instructions, see: Tutorials:How to Make Your Pets Bodyshop Creations Work for All EPs.
  • You can just get the Pets expansion. Those items should start working after you install Pets, assuming you have the right meshes.
  • Delete the non-working items and notify the original creator of the problem. If they get the Pets Body Shop Patch and re-import the project using their existing textures (or use SimPE to fix the existing files) then you should be able to use their fixed files in your game. This is probably the best option as it also alerts the creator to the problem - they may not know that their items do not work in Pets.
