no, the link is broke  Wink

It points to a creature.zip not creaturefixes.zip and you get a "404 - Not Found" error

I grabbed it from the directory a while ago but some silly people might still be waiting for your broken link to work *laughs*

Call me nosy, but what exactly was wrong with the layering/skin coloration/alien eyes so that they needed fixing?

The black Alien eyes do not appear on teens at all and can only appear in combination with the alien skin: Other sims end up with the eyes painted on the skin texture, which can be really awful.

I don't suppose that when you fixed the good witch scalp overlay (or lack thereof...stupid EAxis shortcuts), you gave it a texture to look for?

If so, what's the texture?

There isn't actually supposed to be one, so simply eliminated that portion so that it does not apply a scalp discoloration.

I was afraid of that.  How would I go about giving it one?

So, is the vamp overlay supposed to go over makeup? Or is it an issue with the particular custom make up and vamp overlay I am using? Dark Lala in my game cannot have her dark lipstick because the laverwinkle overlay I use is making them all gray.

I think it's an effect of your particular custom makeup. Works fine in Awesomeland.

Suck. I don't know anything about CC makeup. I guess I won't be able to edit them SimPE.

I like the dog memories for werewolves! It is really funny, because they think they're dogs!

The "assorted random crap" in this fix. It was most likely done deliberately for that touch of comedy The Sims used to have before EA took The Sims off Maxis' hands. I know EA did this after OFB, but the team was probably already working on it beforehand. So could you make a version with the memories?

No, it wasn't. It was caused by incorrectly passing an object ID where an NID was expected or vice versa. It is a clearly technical glitch and not an "Easter Egg" feature. It is not "dog memories": There is no attempt to do anything cute, it is simply a programming error.

Then my question is why are those memories in the game? I am not challenging your knowledge, just wondering why.

The memories are in the game but are not supposed to display random gibberish. This fix makes it so they display the correct memory subjects and not random objects that happen to coincidentally share the subject's NID.

Yes, it's related to the hack.

I do not have creaturefixes in my game, because I don't want it to conflict with Jfade's biting control hack.  (I am a control freak and don't want anyone to bite anyone unless I say so.)  This evening I had a sim turn another sim into a werewolf and the new werewolf got a memory of a different sim turning him into a werewolf.

I'm assuming this is the being turned into a werewolf resulting in memories of random crap glitch.  I can't fix it with SimPE (playing with a Mac, no Sim PE available.) My  questions are:

1) is this harmful, or merely annoying?
2) (and I realize this is related to non-Awesomeware)--if I place creaturefixes in, do I have to take No Biting At All out?
3) If I put creaturefixes in, would it fix the memory problem, or is the damage already done?

If you want your anti-biting, you should make it load last so it will override the biting functions, which aren't core components of creaturefixes, so can be overridden with new behavior without breaking anything.

I've re-named anti-biting with an "x" and it seems to be one of the older files, so whether it loads by date or name seems to be ok.

With "creature fixes" in, my most recent werewolf still has a memory of the wrong sim turning him into a werewolf, though.  Is that game-frying?

If the code containing the memory generation is inside one of the overridden BHAVs, then you will have to bug the person whose code is still bugged.
