Can you post some screen shots to (for example) Imgur, and post direct links to the images and descriptive captions to show us what's going on?
I might be able to once I get some sleep. Basically, the problem was that I intended to recolor some realistic-looking eyes I'd downloaded, but the only previews I got appeared to be of what's already in-game...once I tried recoloring them anyway, they appeared to be the realistic ones once the model appeared, if that makes any sense... Dunno if I actually managed to do what I wanted to by accident, but that's what an in-game check is for...again, once I get some sleep. LOL!
I like your username's alternate spelling for Sinister Love
Either that or do you mean 'See Ya, New Yorkster Love'
We must be in the same time zone then, 'cuz it was between 12 and 1 AM when I last responded, too! LOL! And no, it was actually an alternate of Synyster Gates from A7X since I had the song Hail to the King stuck on repeat in my head back then, although my love and I are both quite sinister at times. As for that screenshot...well, I'll try PM'ing it to ya since I don't use Imgur or anything of the like...
My cc won't show up. does it need to be a specific type of package file?
Ditto. I was looking at an old post that hasn't been updated in almost 3 years last night, tonight I can't find it. Anyway, CC does not come up the way your tutorial screenshots show. I can locate the item under the My CC tab, but opening it that way gives me limited options.
Ohhhhh…. Disregard. I took another look and finally saw what I had missed- the path where you need to put the item before you can open it. I kept seeing where you say "Mods folder" and I'm like, yes, it's there, it comes up just fine in game. I have S4S in my Documents/EA/Sims 4 folder, I never noticed that it created a new folder under Documents.

It's been months since I first wanted to recolor CC. I never knew how to make it show in my S4S, and I had been reading THIS TUTORIAL several times >:D. Now I find out that there is this sententce tha i never paid attention to before, saying that I don't have any complicated things to do, just put it in a folder... I'm kinda angry at myself for being so stupid... :-/ Anyway, thanks for the tutorial, I can (finally) do cc recolors !!! :D

8. Click Tools in the upper menu bar. Select Modding from the first drop down menu. Pick Embed all externally referenced resources (CAS) from the second drop down menu. This will pull the mesh resources into your package and renumber them If you don't do this step, your item will be a recolor of the original but it will not work without the original in the Sims 4/Mods folder with it. This is the step that makes your recolor a standalone recolor that does not need the original and will not conflict with the original.
Test the item in the game: Remember in order for your recolor to show up the original item you recolored must be in the Mods folder with it. If you plan to share the item you should link back to the original so your downloaders can get the mesh...otherwise your recolor will not work in their game.
So, which is it?

Question here. I'm working on my first recolor of a custom content item. I'm a bit confused though. I got my recolor to work the package shows up in the game. However if I take out the original package file of the item I recolored, and leave my recolor file in the game I can still see the item. Don't I have to have the original file in game for my recolor to show up? I'm trying to understand how this is just a recolor when it seems like my file includes the original mesh.
