This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Hi all

My first mesh - First one that has worked anyway



I edited this shoe into a full wedge and slightly altered the textures so they are a little brighter.
Enabled for Everyday, Career and Party and for ages Teen/YA/Adult and Elder



It's a standalone mesh separate from the original and has it's own swatches (standard two-tone for the black and the red and pink have their own new swatched)

Default Version added



Either use the default and delete the non-default version depending on which version you want to use
The default has all the colour options of the original



Polygon Counts:
lod0 - 390
lod1 - 340
lod2 - 216
lod3 - 180

Age: Teen Young Adult Adult Elder
Gender: Female
Clothing Type: Everyday
Style: High Heels Work/Smart Shoes

Hey do you think you could make these as a default replacement option? Like these a lot more than the EA ones.

I also agree that these would be a nice default as yours are better.

Thanks Julie! The originals in game left something to be desired. These should greatly improve that.

Not sure if anyone else has noticed this issue, but in some camera angles, when walking or running, these shoes tend to show a weird distortion lining between them when my sims ladies walk in them. Please help! I want to keep these shoes for sure, as I am a SUCKER for wedge heels ANYTHING...boots, heels, you name it.

UPDATE: Trying to save a screenshot, but it's not letting me upload a photo. Does anyone know how to transfer a screenshot into here? Well, if anyone notices this please let me know. It's more in a zoomed out cam. Is this able to be fixed? Oh and by the way, this is the NON-DEFAULT version. I want to keep both versions, EA and yours, depending on the fashion look. Right foot it seems to be the issue. :D


Thanks!!

Strange - it doesn't do that on mine, tested on all sizes of sim thinking it maybe a morphs issue - but I'll take a look at it anyway
Thanks for pointing it out - Meshes for Sims 4 are still in their infancy so hopefully it can be sorted.

Have you tried it with different outfits?

You're most welcome!!

Actually I have. The brighter shot is my created sim, which I actually have all 5 outfits wearing these shoes in the everyday category, as well as 2 of the 5 outfits wearing these shoes in the party category (told you I'm a sucker for wedge heels! ) This happens no matter what outfit I have them on. The darker shot is actually an NPC that the game generated with the shoes as well, and as you can see, even that happened with them as well, not controlled. So, I wanted to make sure you were aware of this. I wasn't sure if anyone else picked this out, or what, but it's happening to me. Hope that this can be resolved because there's no way I'm letting go of this mod.

Oh, and again, it's the right shoe that's doing this, triggered by the stride of the left foot. Really strange, but that's exactly how it happens. When walking, only the right heel distorts as the left foot is moving.
