New in version 184.108.40.206:
Studio has added a batch fix that will update all CC makeup that currently is not working with the makeup slider system EA recently added.
The batch fix will also allow batch fixed eyeliners to work with the saturation slider and fixed blushes to work with the hue slider. Thank you to Feyona for this excellent idea and for testing the batch fix through several versions.
The pic below shows original blush and eyeliner in the left two images and modified versions of the same items after applying the in-game sliders (including hue and saturation) on the right.
Please note, this batch fix takes time to run, and the more items in the folder you run it on, the longer it will take. If you have a lot of makeup in one folder, you may want to start the batch fix when you're done using your game for the day (i.e. let it run overnight).
Added support for the LRLE image format (used by CAS makeup, skin tones, etc.) and a tools option to convert existing images in a package. Much thanks to tau534 and CmarNYC for reverse-engineering the format.
LRLE images can be imported as PNG or as an uncompressed DDS with mip maps (see settings below in Paint.NET, GIMP, and Photoshop).

Added batch fix for windows and doors broken by the Star Wars patch
