View Full Version : Pixelated/Boxy Makeup!?

I've got an issue with makeup right now. This is not limited to CC, it happens even with the maxis blushes and such.
The below screen shots have a nose blush with boxes on the nose tip, boxy blush, and the lips are a little pixlated too.

I stopped playing sims for a year, and uninstalled the game. I got pets this week and wanted to try it out and reinstalled. I used these items before and they looked perfect, I even previewed them in Sims 4 Studio, it looked fine.

The troubleshooting I have already done:
- Made sure my graphics were at maximum and I've tried setting them with GeForce Experience too. (Which sets it to maximum)
- Checked the uncompressed sim textures and post processing effects. (Tested both on and off)
- Unchecked the laptop mode. (Tested on and off)
- Updated my graphic drivers.
- Reset my computer.
- Run as administrator.
- Removed ALL mods.
- Re-Installed.
- Edited the .packet file, saving the PNG as DDS.

Processor: Intel Core i7-4790K CPU @ 4.00GHz, 4001 Mhz, 4 Cores, 8 Logical Processors
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660
Operating System: Windows 10 Pro

* The nose blush one is the most noticeable, and it was one of my favorite :( I had a friend install it in her game and it looks fine.

I FIXED IT: Well, a semi fix for now. Its not my graphics or computer :p I had to edit the files in Sims 4 Studio and set the CompositionMethod to 4.
EDIT: Just kidding, that didnt fix it.. It worked for one blush but when I try it with the others it just makes those blushes really bright, like it was applied the "screen" filter in photoshop :(

I thought I fixed this, but I didn't.
