After reinstalling and discovering that Misty’s graphics fix no longer worked in my game (*cries*) I looked up a bunch of tutorials and edited my GraphicsRules.sgr. And yes, I included links in the download for anyone who wants them.
What I changed:
Sims now change clothes 10x faster (yay!)
That weird glow is gone
The RenderSimTextureSizes was changed from x1024 to x3328
Make sure your Sim Detail is set to Very High if you want the HD effects to take place.
