I'm hoping that someone can help me with this: I've been using S4S 126.96.36.199 (Harmony) to edit tags for my custom content without any problems for a while now, but today, suddenly and apparently without reason, all of my adult hairs--both female and male--have random streaks of color in them (the AF hairs all have blond streaks and the AM hairs all have black streaks, no matter what color I choose). As far as I can tell, this is only happening in S4S and not in game.
I can't find anything about this problem anywhere online, so I really hope that someone has some idea on what to do. I mean, it isn't the end of the world as long as the in-game hairs aren't affected, but still, I'd ideally like S4S to work the way it's supposed to. I'd appreciate any help

hi! That's just how s4s displays them. There's nothing wrong with them.

Oh, really? I'd never seen this before, and as I said, it only happens with some hairs, so it seemed sudden and inexplicable to me. But if you say nothing's wrong, I believe you--and it's great news, so thank you!
It is how S4S renders alpha hairs. There are 2 types of hairs: alpha and clay. Clay is the way all haircuts from EA are created. They are made with let's call it a block of vertices. the whole 3D mesh of the hair is one big piece. Alpha are hairs such as leahlillith, nightcrawler and so on. They are made of multiple plans. the advantage here is how you can work on the texture to make the hairs look really thin, and allows you to create points at the edges like real hair. They are the more realistic looking in the game.

Hi kayrielyn! Yes Zelrish is right - bluntly speaking, it should look fine in the game, you will not see the "flesh coloured streaks" as they are actually transparent, where the skin texture is referenced.
