Intro
Hey guys! Here is the update for Xhallie's Custom Wrench Icon mod. I got permission to update it a few weeks ago but got wrapped up in another big project, so this is a bit later than expected. I'm glad to finally get this done though, and I had fun making it as I learned new things!


Description
I made the original + 9 new versions for you to choose from:
  • Original Grey CC Icon from Xhallie
  • Green CC Icon
  • Blue CC Icon
  • Green Plumbob Icon
  • Blue Plumbob Icon
  • Black Plumbob Icon
  • Pink Plumbob Icon
  • Purple Plumbob Icon
  • The Sims Medieval Plumbob Icon
  • Sims 3 Store Icon
And then you have another optional file to choose from, No Swatch Icon or (Plumbob) Swatch Icon. No Swatch means that the swatches match EA's genetic swatches, so there are no wrench icons to show that they are CC. The (Plumbob) Swatch Icon is a tiny plumbob on the genetic swatches to indicate they are CC colors, which you can see in the examples. As for the new versions, I simply recolored the original grey icon into Sims colors, and the plumbob icon was my idea as I wanted to add something else that was a bit more Maxis Match. As of now I am no longer taking requests and instead encourage you to make your own by following my tutorial.


Edited Files & Installing
You now download 2 files (that can be merged if you want, they won't break): 1) your wrench icon color/style of choice, 2) a swatch or no swatch for genetic details. Remember to always clear your localthumbcache when adding new mods or CC to ensure the mods/CC work properly.

This mod overrides the six DST files listed below. It will conflict with any other mod that overrides/alters the same files, including all other wrench mods.

00B2D882!00064DCA!D518B5D7A3BBD37C.DSTImage

Created with patch 1.55.108.1020 (September 17th, 2019) and will not work with previous patches.

@AmyRachaelNapier @rose.halliwell I just checked not only my original files but tried downloading from MTS, the files are working from both ends. I deleted the _S4_ from the original file names when updating this time for the patch, which means if you drag and drop the new version into the folder without deleting the old version you will run into this problem. Please delete the old file, delete your localthumbcache, then try again.

Hi, I just redownloaded the files, made a clean mod folder with just the Blue CC Icon and the Swatch Icon (just to be sure, that is correct, yes?), deleted my localthumbcache and still getting the UI issues.

I noticed however that in the zip folder, the date modified for the Blue CC Icon is the 4th of June. I downloaded the Green CC Icon to check, and noticed that the date modified for that file is the 26th of July; this version works fine.
It seems like the file hasn't been updated on MTS, but I don't understand since it worked for you.

That is correct! That's weird though. I've tried re-uploading all the files on here again and hopefully this time it solves the issue for you.

Just redownloaded and checked, and it's still broken. That's really weird. I guess I'll stick with the Green CC Icon for now,
The date modified on the file when I download is still the 4th of June (04/06/2020 10:50, I'm in the UK so day comes before month). It's like it's not saved the updated version.
Maybe MTS is being weird.

EDIT: Clearing my browser Cookies fixed it and let me download the updated file ???? I don't understand but I guess it works now.

Yes it will, that patch fixed something internal and didn't change any of the UI (or tuning).

Hi @MizoreYukii - Thank you for your awesome mod, however, I believe it may require an update after the 21st Anniversary patch.

@inuyato It's already been updated. Try clearing your browser's cache/cookies and try downloading again, and make sure your other UI mods are updated (TOOL, UI Cheats, More Columns in CAS, Color Sliders, More Clubs Per Sim, etc.).

Can you make custom icons for anniversary/sims birthday icon added in the recent patch aswell? It's like the wrench icon but a birthday cake icon with green background.

Just a heads up! The Patch today broke this mod. (Sprite sheet for the wrench must have been changed by the sims's team, and so it's unaligned.)

Love this mod! Will be watching for an update ^_^

It's also making the UI a weird green color. I removed this mod and the UI went back to normal (I thought it was UI cheats but it wasn't)
