orangemittensLuvMySimz There is potentially a bigger issue with hair that I'm not sure will be fixed with a batch. I have a similar issue while using CC where the hair will not change colors even if it's a default hair. What I tried was using the randomizer thinking maybe it was stuck like the pet fur gets sometimes, but that only fixes it part way. Once you choose the next color it gets stuck on that and the randomizer will only choose CC hair.
However when you take out all CC hair there is still a problem. I have issues with a couple alien toddlers where their swatch color chosen isn't reflected on the sim. I put in a report to EA for that part, but if you look at this post on my tumblr. You can see that I have a couple pictures that show what I'm talking about. sparkiemonkey.tumblr.com/post/180107376445/patch-stuff
I have this nagging feeling that it has something to do with the sim and how they were created as mine were created via abduction and it seems to only be those toddlers. New ones created in cas are fine as are human toddlers. I've checked all combinations of sims and it just seems to be my alien toddlers.
@Sparkiemonkey , it is good that you reported the issue to EA also. It might be a problem on their side, (what else is new) I have not patched my game yet, so I can't confirm anything so far, but will patch tomorrow once I saved up and uploaded everything to my gallery.

Sparkiemonkey , ok I was able to take a look at your pics. I see what your'e saying. :-S Did you remove your CC while that happend? or with CC included? If you removed your CC and still had this issue, it could surly be a (EA)bug. I remember the red hair bug which always reverted back to red when changing colors to black or blond and saved. Well, I guess we do have to wait a few days. This was a huge update and like after every update we got (more) bugs coming along our way, right.
ETA: now your page opens
Come to thinking; I remember in the live video they said that they "fixed" the color matching eyebrows with hair now. Saying that now it would really match up lol. Who knows what the "fixed"
"Don't "fix" a running System

I use minimal CC since I'm pretty satisfied with most of everything in the game. However, I'm all about my colorful eye swatch selection, and I'm super bummed that the CC eye swatches I have made no longer work. The face paint versions I have for them work perfectly fine, but I prefer using the genetic selections.
I'm sure the team here is laboring away at a heckin' sweet batch fix for all of this. We love and appreciate all of the hard work each of you are putting in. I can't wait to update my eye swatches~! <333

LuvMySimz The images are done without CC. It was the first thing I went to... thinking it was maybe a bugged hair. When I add the CC hair of any kind the hair color will stay locked on whatever was picked and will not change. I can use the randomize function and it will change the color randomly, but as soon as the new color is picked it then becomes stuck. The weird thing is, its only affecting my abducted alien toddlers. Everyone else is working properly and new sims in cas are as well.
I'm not sure what they did, but I have no clue what else I can do at this point but report it to them and see if they will fix their "fix" :-S. I'm seeing a similar issue with eyes to be honest...but only when I add the nondefault version.
I think I'll just take a step back and wait until a few days after the pack comes out and redownload things after that... three days everything may change again. I did all the pre-patch things they told me to do and removed everything backed it all up. Did all the things you're supposed to do and still have issues. This patch wasn't supposed to affect CC really. Just scripts.
It seems to just be the hair and eyes, so I'm not sure what they've changed with how they work, but I don't think it's the creators this time. i think it's the patch.

Yeah, but you know as good as I do that we can NEVER trust those statments made by Maxis/EA. I'm a S4 Player since 2004 and I can not remember on patch where we did not have any issues with. So yeah, we all have to wait a few days until mods and CC's gets updated by the creators. That is about all we can do for now.
BTW, weerbesu will not update his UI Cheat mod until Get Famous is released
QUOTE by weerbesu at MTS: There won’t be an update until Get Famous is released at the earliest (this mod modifies the Simology panel and the Simology panel behaves differently with Get Famous installed). Expect an update sometime this weekend.“

My tests so far show that this issue affects alpha hair and the custom color swatches of EA-style hairs if the swatches have the check mark removed from the "Allow For Random" box. I have tested this with an alpha hair (Simglass shader) that did not allow any changes to the hair color in CAS. I put a check in the Allow For Random for each swatch, and then I could select the hair color. Similarly, I took an EA-style hair, added a custom color swatch to it, and I could select all colors. I then removed the check mark from the Allow For Random box for each swatch, and the custom color was no longer selectable in CAS. If this is the reason (or even part of the reason) why this problem is occurring, it explains why people are finding that some hair works while other hair does not.
This is, ofc, a preliminary test, so it's too early to tell if this is the entire problem or even if these two hairs are representative of the issue everyone has reported here.
Please help other creators find Sims 4 Studio and receive the help you received by mentioning Sims 4 Studio with your downloads Please do not PM me with questions about projects or getting Studio to run on your computer. I do not answer these PMs.
It is not just the hair. It's also cc beard and moustaches. I also have issues with cc eyeshadow and eyeliner. Some of the swatches (i could change them) are looking very faint after the patch. So i thought it had something to do with EA colours or Custom colours.
