How to fix the "Unable to fix"

For the batch fix to work, the .package need to be from “before”, meaning it needs to miss the new “model cutout”. In that case, you’ll need to delete it for the software to generate a new one.

1. Open Sims 4 Studio
2. Click on My Projects and select the unable-to-fix package 


3. Go to Warehouse tab and search for Model Cutout in the list
4. Select the ressource and click delete
5. Save
6. Rerun the batch fix

And fixed !

    Thanks so much for this info, I use batch fix often but had no idea about the second part. I always thought if it couldn’t fix then it was tough luck. You have made me so happy!!

  2. Young lady, you did an excellent job developing this tutorial. As a retired Training Director, I often “silently” review and critique tutorials. However, when I run across a well written tutorial, I’m compelled to comment. You did good!

    1. This is a batch fix for windows only and you don’t have to do it regularly ! Just once to fix the old one and you’re done 🙂 New cc coming up from today will be made differently, according the new rules !
