myobi regarding the code part. I think you have some browser addon installed, so it includes this comment in the post. I'll try to take a look at shadow file later, may I'll get an idea why is this happening. At the first glance everything seems normal and should works as expected...
myobi I didn't pay an attention when looked at the first time on your file. Turns out it is cas sort number that is preventing your shadow to lay over skintones with composition method set to 0. You use number 2100, and the same number is used by custom skin detail so it either"sends" your eyeshadow under texture of skin detai, or just cancel due to conflict (I am clueless how it work in case of the same sort layer numbers for 2 cas assets). Changing CAS sort level from 2100 to 5200 for each CAS part totally fixes it. EA's eyeshadow also use 5200 as sort layer.
I edited your post for the easiness of reading :). The code said "mytubeelement", so you might be right.
Regarding tattoos. The only way to make them work with custom skins with composition method set to 0 is to clone EA's tattoo (choose override) and change composition method to 0. By default black EA's tattoos have composition method 1, colored tattoos comp.method is 0, so they will appear on top of skin detail. Custom skin details with composition method set to 0 don't blend with makeup and tattoos. If you change composition method to higher number for skin detail like Candice skin by FRS, it will look completely different not in a good way. What I do if some of newly downloaded CC doesn't work with custom skin details, I change composition method to 0 for each CAS part swatch.
By the way, you mentioned that Studio switches sort layer to 2100 when you clone eyeshadow. What eyeshadow do you clone, and what version of Studio do you have? It didn't happen with my file when I cloned eyeshadow to check sort layer, so I am super curious how did it happen with your file. P.s. Disregard my question, I figured what file was that. I wonder if there is more eyeshadow with the same sort layer as skin details.
