I have two problems that appeared after installing seasons.

1) nearly all of the bigger accessories are now blue and floating in the air rather than attached to the sim´s hand (for example spears and swords from Rosesims)

2) I cannot seem to be able to assign hairstyles to different types of clothing. Whatever I choose, it changes the hair in ALL of the cathegories.

I do have the game patched.

2) Strange It works to me fine
May be that only occures with custom hair meshes? Try compare Maxis and custom to  assign

1)

2) Are you assigning a certain color for 'everyday' or 'formal' and then choosing a hair style under the 'custom' bin for everything else? I have found that if I choose - say - hair from the black bin for everyday, and then something out of the custom bin for formal(et cetera), it tends to change the hair style for ALL of the outfits and I have to go back and change it to my first choice. Sorry if this doesn't make sense!

Yes that does work, however, I have townies using various accessories, and when they show up downtown or in a community lot with flashing blue stuff on them, its kinda annoying. Also it gets tedious doing it every time you load up a family with someone who has them. I never had this problem up till loading Seasons. It now seems to be alternating which accessories works and which ones don't. One item, a jacket, works perfectly, but a pair of wings that did before, now appear blue flashing. I don't understand it Sad

There's a good chance that some of the accessories are bugging out because of some issues where in the past, if an accessory is missing the "lens" layer but still has it assigned to the object, then the game used to ignore the layer and it would work fine. I noticed that after Pets came out, the game no longer ignores the empty layer, and instead objects turn up blue and flashing. You may want to see if the accessories giving you problems have updated meshes.

So. Everything is even worse. Sad

1) The flashing absolutely cannot be avoided. It does still happen when I change their appearance again. Actually, it does not only happen to sims that USED to be in game before seasons, it also happens to those I make now. Crap.

2) Also, the hair problem got even worse. Before, I thought that I only cannot assign hair to occasions... I thought, okay, it is stupid because I was overjoyed with the possibility, but I will survive like I did before. Now I found out another disastrous thing: When I create a new sim and pick one I had made previously in bodyshop, they often appear wearing a different hair than the one I had assigned to them in bodyshop. Usually it is the hair the randomly generated sim (the first that pops out when you click male or female cathegory) was wearing. Its bloody annoying. The hairs went totally crazy. Sad


OH: and weetzie...its apparently not even just a problem of updated meshes, because I have wings that do show on sara´s mesh, and wings that do not show on the same mesh.
