Default Theres A Bald Spot On A Maxis Hair Mesh When I Use Sims 4 Studio
Hi, my name is Evan and I'm new to creating custom content. I have a problem with using The Sims 4 Studio. (Please tell me if I'm not posting in the right area)
I'm trying to edit a Sims 4 Maxis base game hair mesh and i'm also using the 3D Model program "Blender" so I can flip the bangs to the right. The problem is that when I import the hair mesh in Sims 4 Studio, a bald spot appears in the front of the head.
I did update the game and I only have The Sims 4 base game. This is a Maxis Hair Mesh and I don't think I need to download a mesh to get it to work but please correct me if i'm wrong and give me some info. Thanks!

P.S: I'm new to The Sims 4 Studio and Blender.

It's impossible to tell much from a picture without seeing the package, but I can guess based on how TS4 Hair is structured. There are three meshes in a hair: one that's the full hair and two hat cuts, which are meshes with the top part cut off to prevent it from showing through hats. (There are two types of hats so two hat cuts.) Maybe what you're seeing is one of the hat cut meshes rather than the full hair. I don't use S4 Studio or Blender but from what I've read this can happen if you change the mesh and don't keep the correct cut numbers when you import it back.

Please do not PM me with mod, tutorial, or general modding questions or problems; post them in the thread for the mod or tutorial or post them in the appropriate forum.

I also don't know what a cut number is. I'm a dummy and new to creating custom content for The Sims 4. Do you know how to keep the cut numbers?

As I said I don't use Studio so I donít know. Have you asked on the Studio forums or looked at their tutorials?

No, not yet. I just created a thread on Sims 4 Studio recently. But thanks again! Hopefully I will find a way to fix it. This is for a music video and i'm being very nitpicky on
the style of the hair. The bangs needs to be parted to the right not the left.
