Title: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: Anouk on 2008 June 30, 10:39:32
Post your free creations, get feedback and tips and help others with their free and shiny stuff!

That's basically it. So get postin' pirateys, the more free stuff the better :)

I read a thread around here about mohawks so I created one... it's for your more alternative sim chicks. Tell me what you think. This hair is probably ideal for crazy recolors, anyone have suggestions on wich to do first?

For Herman Toothrot (our dear nommable Bruno), if you also hate those flat chests with cillicone boobs painted on, I could make you a barefoot alphadress mesh with normally meshed boobs (like with underwear).

I don't think I've ever seen a mohawk like that, and that's exactly why I like it. :)

I'm always partial to shades of pink (particularly hot pinks and fuchsias, not lighter shades like dusty rose or whatever) so I'd love to see that.

Awesome mohawk. I like blue (electric bright blue) or green (same) or orange (not coppery/brown, orange). But, I hope you'll still make some 'normal' hair colors.


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: Anouk on 2008 June 30, 11:19:00
I'll  make four normal ones at the least. Then probably some 2 colored ones.

Nice hair, i like very much  :)
as for colours......I also like the hot pink shades, but I really like deep, but bright, purples and reds.

I will so grab that hair and I'm hoping that you make it in a silver/white tone, those are some of my most favourite shades... Great job, Noukie!!

This is a great hair Nouk.  I'd like to see a platinum blonde and any variation of green.

That would be *so* appreciated! ;D But only if it won't take too much of your time. An alpha enabled skirt isn't necessary, and I had the idea of putting a pair of comfy slippers on her feet, so the only part of the mesh that needs to be modified are the boobz:

That 'hawk is walking sex. I am so going to fangirl you at every possible moment from now on, Nouk.  :D

As far as recolors go, I'd love a dark blue one (I rocked a blue fauxhawk at my prom   ;) ) and definitely, definitely pink. All shades of pink, from pastel to neon.

That mohawk looks amazing! Its perfect for all my freestyle/punk sims.
I like neon blue and neon-hot pink, but thats just my opinion.

Post by: Quinctia on 2008 July 01, 02:44:00
I love the 'hawk, though it seems like a little bit of assymmetry in the bangs might work better.  Though since it's one of YOUR meshes, Nouk, and not a Peggyzilla monstrosity, I'll bet it'd be easy enough to alpha it to my tastes in the regard. XD

Very nice Nouk :D

I have a question for people who use GIMP :]

I've made this (http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b306/bethbrit2001/sims%202/supertot.jpg) today, but think it looks like something you get on TSR, floodfilled and ugly.
Is there any way I can add stitching/seams to it? as in, on the side, sleeves, bottom of the t-shirt and maybe on the top of the socks? do you have any good tutorials that show me how I can do it? I have a basic understanding of GIMP so a Photoshop tute can work too, I can *easily* translate (easily meaning looking up on Google what I don't understand teehee)
Please? :D

yes, we do. 
and yes, you can add stitching to it in a few different ways.  Another thing that you should consider is adding a bit of shadow and highlight to the shirt itself.

(http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk250/hoza001/BSthankssssspiccyyy.jpg)
if you want a lighter color, start with the light and go to the dark. SO PRETTY! I still have to work on the realistic part, though... ::)


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: glasscigarette on 2008 July 02, 20:29:16
Aw, I feel famous! ;)

Add a little shine and some darker texturing and they will be a lot more realistic. I think you'll be making excellent eyes in no time, because every time you post them, they look better and better. :)

(http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g179/zoeycat123/Other%20sims%20stuff/projectpic.jpg)

Any suggestions to make it better?


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: Zazazu on 2008 July 03, 02:19:15
Perhaps just a tad bit darker on the pupil. Other than that, it looks perfect to me.

Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: glasscigarette on 2008 July 03, 20:44:16
Aw, delicate sensibilities. ;)

The eyes look very nice, Lemons. I don't usually go for red, myself, but it's a nice deep color. I'd have to agree with Zazazu about making the pupil a little darker (a full black, since this looks like an extremely dark maroon); I think that would make quite a difference in making them look more realistic. Are you still planning on making more colors? And are you going to go with primarily fantasy colors, or natural ones? I'd really like to see this texture/shine pattern on some natural, dark-colored eyes (dark browns, backs, dark blues, etc.).


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: Astonished lemons on 2008 July 03, 20:52:33
Im actually working on a dark blue as we speak type.

Im hoping to have one or two of each regular eye color (brown, black, two green, two blue, grey) and then a couple of fantasy ones. (Like this red, and maybe a purple).

I hope I can recreate the criss-crossy way of making the shine though. . .


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: Renegade on 2008 July 04, 10:38:06
Lemons, if you're going for more realistic, I think they should be a teeny bit smaller in width.  Basically so more of the whites show, but not too much.  But that's just my personal taste - I know some people prefer the bigger eyes.


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: fway on 2008 July 04, 16:31:38
Nouk that Mowhawk is incredible. I love the sideswooped effect.


@ Astonished:
I think if you took replaced the white near the pupils with something to match the eye texture, and maybe made the pupil more intense, it would be better.

@ Sammy:
The eyes might need a little bit more gloss to it. It's a bit cartoony for me.


I lost Abney due to securom removal...    >:(  however it is backed up... so good on me.

I don't know why I never give up... I've tried my hands at hair meshing again.

This hair was originally going to be a tribute to the Ramones but it ended up being a tribute to Svenne Hedlund - N.o 1 teenage idol in Sweden in the 60's - see him in his glory days! (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v702/bergsisters/HEPSTARS.jpg) (My mother had that record. When I was a kid, my friends and I used to literally roffle at it. We compared the poor guys - not to their advantage - to OUR n.o 1 idols of that time - NKOTB!) (The guy in the top-left corner is Benny Andersson of ABBA, BTW :P)

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v702/bergsisters/ScreenShot015.jpg)

Anyway - textures is my weak side but I'm determined to improve (how tempting it may be to steal Nouk's lovely textures... Must. Resist!) So they are not super. Neither is the mesh, but at least it's very low poly (hence the sharp edges here and there  :P...)

I don't know what I'm going to do with it - would anyone actually want it (it needs improvement of course - that's why I'm posting!)? Mebbi medieval simmies wants it as well as the odd Swingin' Sixties guy?

Suggestions for improvement welcome!

The Ramones are so very cool! I read that and was like "tribute???This is the best!"
But now you are frustrated.
Hmmm. I could see some very hip clothing, some blue-tinted shades and the blond hair on a very cool Sims.

OR

Maybe some "tribute to the Ramones clothing" and the dark hair on Tommy or Dee Dee? Too short for Joey ya know.

I love this haircut, Berg; it's going to go on every male in my current neighbourhood, lol (almost makes me wish I was running some kind of Prince Valiant themed thing :D).

I really like the job you've done on the blond texture, it's not flat, with a nice hint of shine and a good mix of strands of other colours to make it actually look like hair (plus excellent job on keeping the strands so that they actually look like strands of hair on all colours!). For some reason, the other colours look a little flat to me (they are very nicely done however, I would be satisfied with them as is!), although I will admit that I'm not sure why. Maybe the shininess needs to be upped a little (and I mean a very little, please no Raon-ness  ;D), or perhaps a few more contrasting shades of the colours to add depth?


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: Captain Berg on 2008 July 05, 04:32:06
Thank you for helpful feedback, Mando  :) And you are a very good observer  ;) - all colours are based on the blonde and they did indeed suffer a little from the treatment I gave them. I see what you mean and I shall try to improve them, esp. the highlights (which always are APITA... Stupid dodge tool *muttres*).

Opinions PLZ: Which Photoshop tools are best to use when fiddling with colour adjustments? I try not to touch "hue/saturation" because I find that it can completely ruin a texture, but "Colour Blanace" makes everything so.. bland.



Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: mando on 2008 July 05, 05:50:51

Thanks for the fine compliment! ;D
I don't make much (if anything) for the Sims, but I do have quite a bit of experience with photoshop, colour theory and texture painting, so I like to try and help when I can, lol. I'm glad you find it somewhat helpful!. I hate the dodge tool, too, and only try to use it sparingly. Have you tried instead to hand paint your highlights in with a light colour on a low opacity on a separate layer? It's a good way to make highlights, and (unlike the dodge tool) won't cause you to have to start over from scratch if you go too far. :)

I generally tend to use "hue/saturation", "colour balance", "levels", and "contrast/brightness" (I love the highly improved version of it in CS3), however I'm also a big fan of layers and generally will build up my colours and textures layer by layer at different opacities (e.g. I will copy a layer of my texture, use adjustment(s) and then lower the opacity down and/or move the layer around in my stacks of layers and folders). I am ashamed to admit that the psds of my textures generally contain hundreds of layers :D; however, I'm very careful to keep each one named properly and grouped into folders when I'm done (in my early days I didn't do that, and when I would go back to work on things later it would take me at least a couple of hours to figure out what each layer was, heh. Organization was a very painful lesson to learn! ;D).

I'll also always go in later and hand paint in details and blocks, stripes and dashes of colour to add highlight, shadow, texture and depth (as usual, at different opacities and on separate layers). It can be time consuming, but makes a big difference in the end product.

D'uh! That's how I always do it when I make clothing! Why I didn't think of applying it to hairs is a question I will think long about before answering. No: I'm just stupid sometimes  :P

Layers
Oh lawd, my files always become a complete mess  :D I know I could and should create groups but I always think: "Ah, I'm soon finished anyway so why bother now?" and after a while 20 new layers have appeared (not named properly, of course) and I have to scroll the layer palette up and down like a maniac to find "Duplicate 32" or whatever until I get angry and merge a bunch of layers I think I'm finished with, only to realize that one of them was very important and useful (but only when it's to late)...

Shall I go on? My chaos. Let me show u it.

Thanks for the fine compliment! ;D
You're most welcome! I've seen your awesome art for the FAQ, you know, so I value your tips greatly. Thanks!

Lol, thanks dear Nouk  ;)

As I mentioned, the base for those textures were made with a program called Filter Forge. I can no longer use the 30-day trial version of it but I saved one fairly hi-res .jpg with a blonde-ish hair texture which might be useful to you hairmakers. If someone's interested, I can upload it later (not at my own computer right now).

xD I actually wasn't sure if I had put the actual floors up. I can make a wall set if you like. I'm not sure what exactly you want though. Do you want the marble part in the walls? Shoot me a pm or something and I'll start on them when I get back from DC on Saturday.

Red I love the texture on the second wall. Would love it in neutral colors as well.
Zazazu, I thought the same thing about Hermans pic.  The thumb looks blurry, but when I clicked on it, I was so pleasantly surprised! Herman, those shirts are so pretty and very well made. I really want those!  I always think creators should make more shirts.

More shirts. In less than two days I have to part with my comp for 1 weeks - if I haven't uploaded them to MTS2 until then I'm afraid you'll have to wait a bit longer. :( I really want to upload recolours of the solid coloured tops along with the printed ones so that's going to take time too... And processing pics of items taken in game always takes me ages. But eventually they'll be up. :)

They look wonderful! I can't wait to get them. I'd love to see more recolors of the solid shirts; I tend to prefer solid colors to prints (for my Sims, at least) but your printed versions are nicer than others I have seen out there so you might actually manage to change my mind.  ;)

Not my longest fight, but definitely the best. And the nanny is now doing that furious walk-by thing. I let Jennie kick her ass again, but it wasn't nearly as epic.
EDIT: You also have a big "challenge". I wish I could grow my legacies to that length.
It's not really a legacy. Kind of a prosperity started by one sim, with no scoring crap and lots of organization. Oh, and townie aging. I just started documenting in the fourth generation, so it looks bigger than it is. 10 houses in play, with five boys waiting on my holding lot to be placed at the end of this round. I'm thinking three more households as one definitely needs his own place for the farm and I'd like to keep the gay twins and their unknowing half-brother together, breaking into multifamily homes in earnest. When I reserved the future community lot space, I realized how crowded things really are getting.

I am determined to get  smudgy,smokey, bed-room eyes correct.
Am I getting close?
(I did the eye and the eye-shadow/liner) and the hair is by Nouk even if you can't see it... ;D

Post by: glasscigarette on 2008 July 12, 15:36:21
I really like the shine on the eye. I tend to prefer more natural eyecolors, for my own use, but I think the eye is shaping up quite nicely anyway. The area around the sclera looks kind of wonky to me, but I don't know if it's the eye or the liner since I'm no CC artist.

Personally, I like slightly heavier, darker eyeliner when I'm going for the smokey look, but that's just the emo in me and not everyone would agree, since this is pretty and natural.  ;)  The shadow looks quite nice, particularly on the upper eye: the eyelid crease is quite well done. Nice work!


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: Tempest Limmerfer on 2008 July 12, 17:30:50
Thanks for the comments, GC.
I think that part is wonky as well...a liner problem I think.
I just went with purple to show it, but I have been playing with normal colors as well...especially greens.

I sighed with relief after your comment about the upper crease; that was my biggest worry!


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: calalily on 2008 July 12, 17:40:10
That upper crease looks great - try bringing the liner into the eye a little more - and fuzzy it up on the inner edges as well - so that it doesn't create such a line around the eye. 

Just spitballing here as I hate making makeup and can't do it very well.  :D

As for me, I really like that one. I've got a couple of Sims who will be wearing that one all the time once I get my hands on it. Frankly, I love that there's a ton of diversity here. Sure there are one or two that I'll probably never use, but chances are they're someone else's favourites. The more variety the better, I say.

And for the record, I love the teensy bit of tummy peeking out on some of the shirts. I think that's really cute.

Very nice interior decor pics, Missbonbon.

Let's see, I would define the dining room as French-North African-Danish Modern. Now, the kitchen I see as being somewhat more Future-50's Retro Urban Country. While the living room can only be described as Soothing Safari Green Tea Chic (with a splash of Zen).

And that bedroom is just plain fun. -  :D

Version 1. Anything freaky, like the hole in her head (alpha's a seperation lol) will be fixed. The head part took ages to make, holy crap. But next time I'll know how to do it faster.  I might make the forehead higher, I'll see how that looks.

I like it.  It seems like the braid might start a little too high to sit comfy on the wearer if it were a real braid, but I think the way the hair around the head is gathered and situated looks a lot more realistic than other braid meshes I've seen.

If you ever start running out of hair ideas, Nouk, layered shoulder-length hair with waves/loose curls... XD

Don't change the forehead!
I likes it this way....and I want...must have...

Note: the part looks a bit off-center and that is what makes it look fantastic! I hate when the parts are way too perfectly centered; you have added a personality to this hair and it really works.

It looks good, Nouk, but I'm confused why it's all the way to the left like that.  It's very Peggy/Rose-ish.  Good for pictures I guess but I think it would look weird in game play. /my opinion

Personally, I'd like to see a braided hair ala Maggie at the WTC premiere (http://www.celebritywonder.com/event/World_Trade_Center_Premiere/) or Xena (http://i34.tinypic.com/n2hiyo.jpg)..

 :o I love the hair Nouk. The only thing I would change is the part that hangs down in front.It's a little too straight. It would look better if it was a little wavy. The forehead height is perfect. It's the best braid I've ever seen. Your textures are amazing.
Ooh that Maggie braid would be awesome.

*gasp* Noukie, that's how I wore my hair last year, until I got it cut into the style that you made a replica of! I wubs you and I would like that hair, please and thank you! (And yes, the hair was down to my waist like that one. Are you on my brain waves??)  :D

Noukie, I love that hair! I've wanted a braid like that forever, There was one similar for Sims 1 and I've missed it so. I love the off-centered look.

Love the hair Nouk.  About the realism of the braid - I plait my hair like that - up higher than normal.  My hair isn't so long, but I find that comfortable, and it also lifts my hair off the back of my neck when you do that.

Mmmk so I'm crazy. I worked on this house for 3 months.... basically constantly changing the rooms and they still don't look right.... maybe some suggestions? (sorry about the craptasticness of the pictures)
I didn't include a shot of the back patio or the hallway because of picture spam  :P Really the only rooms I like so far is the bedroom and the bathroom.

You know, I reckon that all your dissatisfaction is caused by the neat way that the clutter sits - the majority of the room looks great, but the clutter looks placed in tiles. I think it would be easily solved by using the cheats "moveObjects on" and "boolProp snapObjectsToGrid false" - that way you could make your clutter, well, clutter.  ;)

Other than that, all great - and then publish it and don't touch it.  :D

OMG!!! Okay.. I'm done him. Freakin' done. I wanted to make some fangs for him (but all my accessories like that are all ages + genders because I am just that damn picky) so I said forget it ATM.. too damn much work.

Now, he is my own character from my own twisted brain, so I dunno how many people will want to DL him. I mostly made him for myself. He's disturbingly effeminate, so unless you're into that kind of thing, he probably will be odd in your game. D:

He's supposed to have a tail. But screw that. (I think tails look odd in sims anyways, they tend to cut too much on chairs and junk...).......


(http://zelas.net/eclipse/sims2/Original/Mirador/First/Mirador_SecondPrevs08.jpg)
He does have his elf/lynx ears though. They have bumpmaps too and are for all ages + genders.

SPEAKING OF BUMPMAPS.

All of my previous sim downloads that have bumpmapping are MESSED UP!!! Why did no one say anything? Dilandau's shoulder plates are totally warped. DDDD:
I got a new videocard and saw the horrors. My old card displayed the mapping, but not properly and I had no idea about the fug. D:

So now I need to remap all my previous sims and upload new files. YAY. What fun....

(Of course, if your videocard is crappy like my old one, you won't notice).

Anyways, Mirador has PROPER bumpmaps now, I hope to god.
I tried my best to not make stuff look like dented foam, because I hate that....

Also, Nouk asked about my hair. Sorry, I did not see the post till now.
It's really high poly.. I think because I layer a LOT..... plus I don't like working with sections of hair that have less than 3-5 faces per row...... Hopefully this will be my biggest hair and everything in the future will be waaay smaller....
Polycount is a horrific 11,000 on the finished hair... but I'm still lower than a good amount of new Peggy and Raon hair at least.

The hair is also finished for all ages + genders and I did 10 colours... I'll upload it sometime in the future with 50 warnings on it.

(http://zelas.net/eclipse/sims2/Original/Mirador/First/Mirador_SecondPrevs02.jpg)
He has earrings too. They will fit all ages + genders but they are tapered to fit the special ears.. they may work okay on regular ears too though. :/

Anyways, here are some full pictures. I cut some because they are HUGE!

Version 1. Anything freaky, like the hole in her head (alpha's a seperation lol) will be fixed. The head part took ages to make, holy crap. But next time I'll know how to do it faster.  I might make the forehead higher, I'll see how that looks.

That hair is totally gorgeous! I'm so in love with it! The textures and shape are perfect.

I assume because of Rose/Peggy hairs like that do look weird in game play.  I've also had hair down to my butt for half of my lifetime and it's thick too.  I'd never put it to the side like that.  It's an uncomfortable weight on one side of your body.  The more I think about it, the more it irritates me.   :D  Yeah yeah, it's the Sims and not real life.  I don't have to have it in my game and it ultimately doesn't matter what I think.

And this hair (http://hideki.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=248947)?  It's vaguely similar but not what I was wanting and that's okay.  If I really wanted it all that badly, I'd try to make it myself.

Well peggy and rose don't seem to want to animate their hairs correctly. It's really easy, I presume I'm not smarter than them, they have the damn skill, they just refuse to do it. Now THAT's irritating, lol.
Since sims don't react to hairs weight I'm not too bothered by it. It looks uncomfortable but since your sims won't show it ingame, it shouldn't be too annoying. Besides, I have a knack for creating giant-ass hairdo's that no-one in their right mind would wear, but I make my sims wear it :P This is just one of many :P

That hair, you could texture some curls into it and it would be about right I think?

I would upload it for you but unfortunately I don't know how to package houses..... but if I can find some info on it I will be more than happy to send it to you :)

I didn't notice anyone address this for you. (You kind of got overshadowed by Nouk's latest drool-worthy hair. ;) ) From the neighbourhood screen, click on the house and select the icon that has an arrow pointing to an asterisk. (If you have Sims living there, you might have to click the info "i" icon to see that option.) Select the option to save the lot to your hard drive (I can't remember the exact wording, but it's the one that doesn't reference the Exchange). It'll tell you where it was saved.
If the lot has Sims in it, open the package with Clean Installer, de-select Sims/pets, and re-save it. Then just upload it to Medaifire or... one of those other file-sharing sites. I can't remember names right now.
(Oh, and if you like us, please let us know what EP's you have so that we'll know if the lot will crash our game.)

And thank you guys for your lovely comments...... I think the issue is I didn't really decorate the hallway so it's like I have this huge gap in between with a fireplace

Well, I know one way, is to go into neigborhood view and go into the lots and houses bin, select the house, and there's an icon with a house and a star above it, that's what you want to use to package the lot, you select upload to a file. Wait a few, and it will tell you where your home is. Put it in a zip file and upload it to a site, mediafire is pretty good.


Nouk! That hair is gorg. *swoons*
Please please please upload it. Your stuff is always perfect. It would go well with your extra long hair that you made a while ago. The one down to the bottom of the back, I forget the name. However, it wouldn't quite fit with it, if the braids were a bit longer, or you made an extended version, that would be awesome.

So I'm looking for opinions on a house. One of my favourite things to do with TS2 is to take actual building floorplans and turn them into Sim houses. (It gets me away from the generic rectangles I tend to build otherwise.) A week or two ago I saw an ad for one of the suites in a new high-rise in my city - a 1700 square-foot, two story, one bedroom condo. Way too extravagant, IMHO, for a normal person, but perfect for a Sim living the good life. It's got two TV areas (plus one in the bedroom), a pool table, a hot tub, a bar, and tons of places to sit and eat.

After ages of fighting with it (I said I liked building Sim houses, not that I was particularly good at it. ;) ) I've finally come up with this. Excuse all the nighttime shots. I've just recently installed the Radiance Lighting mod and am still in awe of the pretty.

I just remembered that I use default replacement bedding in my game, so the bed will look slightly different.

Upstairs Floor Plan (http://img387.imageshack.us/img387/1530/floorplantopfloormm9.jpg)

I'm rather fond of it and am tempted to submit it to MTS2, but.... I don't know. There are just a couple of things that I think people might find too annoying. The first is that the large hedge outside isn't accessible, so you have to move it before it can be trimmed. The second is that I used a dummy level to build the stairs, because any other way was messing with the house layout too much. I think it was worth all the hassle, but the result is that you have to click twice to go up or down a level. Do you think people would hate that?

Here's the lot if anyone wants it. (http://www.mediafire.com/?ixxbjmqbxmn) I've tested the download, and it should be fine.
It has no CC, because I personally hate houses that are full of custom downloads I don't want, and as you can see from the images it relies heavily on objects from Pets. I've got all the EP's up to and including Seasons, so I imagine you'll need all of those to make it work properly.

Any comments/notes/suggestions?

Yeah, he's got a bow. lol
It looks pretty at other angles because the lace is alpha edited and the ribbon is actually white under the alpha.
Thing is, I sort of thought having the bow looked a little funny, my actual character does have a bow, but he has a tail too that it sits over and seems to fit better. I didn't give him the tail in sim form, so it probably doesn't work quite so well. I was going to make it bigger with longer ribbons too so it may not have looked so cropped, but then there would be more cutting into chairs and stuff. :(
Plus, I admit, more modeling and I got lazy. LMFAO!  :D

falln, I can't think of a thing you should have done differently; I work with real house plans as well, and sometimes you have to make adjustments for sims, but in general, if they are liveable by humans, they are liveable by sims.

As far as the dummy level, I don't mind it. I've used it before to get the place right, and I think it's not that big a deal. What is it, a double click instead of a single? Anyone who complains about that can go fuck themselves, IMO.


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: falln_angel on 2008 July 16, 17:35:54
I'm glad you like it. This is actually the only house I've played with dummy levels, and it just felt like something that people might get really annoyed by. (Kind of like 10-digit dialing...) But you're right, it is just one extra click. And if you play with object hiding off you might even be able to play from the dummy level itself since it doesn't have a floor.

Decorating with Maxis stuff can be annoying as hell because it's all either really stylized or really bland, and the stuff that looks normal tends to have really low motive/environment stats. But this house was just screaming out for the atomic age (or whatever it's called) Pets furniture, I think.

Keirra and Vod Kaknockers, if you end up playing the house at any point, please let me know if there's any weirdness. I did playtest a clone of the house, but with the game I used to build it, so I wouldn't notice if I accidentally used a custom object or something. (Although I'm pretty sure I didn't.)

And I've got one more question. The front of the house (http://img170.imageshack.us/img170/1449/exteriorfrontly7.jpg) looks really... bland I guess. I'm assuming it's because the entry is off a hallway, but there aren't any windows on the front face (except one I added for the bathroom), and if I put some in it looks funny because they intersect with stairs and stuff. Totally not an issue as far as gameplay (the only dark room is the little computer room upstairs), but since MTS2 requires a screenshot of the house from the street, should I jazz it up a bit, and if so, how? Tack on some pointless windows? Move the palm tree so it fills more of the dead space? Or does it not really look that terrible and I'm just being over-sensitive?

A few patches of flowers would add a bit of color (next to the mailbox, and on the right side of the tree), and one or two wall lights would break the greyness of the wall.

Been there. My only thought is to perhaps use a wallpaper that has a large horizonal stripe across it, at least on the lower floor, forwards portion. You know, the one-square-back-from-door portion. I think that would be enough to bring interest without adding anything on the top floor. That would involve making something custom, though, and even though it would be a quick creation, it would break your no-cc status.

Consider using a cool stone facade on the left front-facing bits - something to break up the look.

ETA: Also, consider using some sort of edging - there are some great ones out there - to 'finish' the flat jutting-out roof bits. MTS2 has several.

Because that's usually how I wear my hair, only mine's yet a bit longer. When I've got mine in a big fat poofy high pony like that, it's still down to my butt. But that's as close as I've ever seen to my hairstyle. I'm not big on fantasy sims but I am really big on that hair. :) DO WANT NOW! (I fear not the polys. *wubs her 4GB of RAM*) Especially if it's in dark auburn. It'd be nice if the auburn had some wee streaks of grey in it, but I know that's probably too much to ask. ;) And I haven't the first clue as to how to recolor, I'm afraid. *sigh*

Also want Nouk's hair. Will get Nouk's hair. Yay for more excessively long hairs!

Consider using a cool stone facade on the left front-facing bits - something to break up the look.

ETA: Also, consider using some sort of edging - there are some great ones out there - to 'finish' the flat jutting-out roof bits. MTS2 has several.

I agree that it needs something to cover the floor edges, but that would violate the no-CC thing, which I don't want to do. It'd probably be a good idea to recommend them though. Although I can't find them on MTS2 right now. I feel like a complete idiot, but the only ones I can find are from 4ESF.

I'll play around with different walls and lights and stuff on the front. Maybe I'll find something that works.


*edit*

So it turns out there aren't a ton of options with Maxis wall coverings. (Surprise, surprise.) But here's my tentative new front view.

(This (http://img170.imageshack.us/img170/1449/exteriorfrontly7.jpg) is the one I'm less happy with, if you need a reference and don't feel like scrolling up.)

I think it's a big improvement, although admittedly a big part of that was turning it away from the sun. (And turned shadows back on. They were off for the floor plan shots and I forgot to turn them back on for the earlier picture apparently.) I'm not 100% convinced I like the third palm tree. Part of me things it helps break things up, another part things there are too many identical palm trees in the front yard now.

I dunno. What do you guys think?

Okay. I know I've been gone two weeks so you may have seen it, and it's not something I made, but do yourself a favor and go to parsimonious and check out the anniversary stuff. For SERIOUS. There's a pirate set, gypsy stuff, vampire/castle build stuff, working hot air balloons and zounds it's awesome. And before y'all ask, no, it's not all floral and paisley. And you want the piratey bar stuff.

 ;D OMG the hair is awesome! Ya know, I only entered the banner contest so I might have a chance of requesting something like this. Rose's pay braid is so lame, it's come the closest until now.

The Parsimonous update is amazing too. In fact, it got me moving to install the Sims on my desktop again. My laptop is on the fritz.

CBonney, the house is awesome! I downloaded it :P

It's the first Sims thing I have downloaded in a month! I finally got one of my computers to work!
Thanks MissAngelica and Nouk, thanks to both comments, I got the idea to look inside the machine at the graphics card and realised that my stupid friend put in the WRONG card and did not screw it down properly!
So I fixed it, installed drivers and voila! I am back in business with a Frankestein machine and it's super awesome :P Now for him to give me my games drive back...
But other than that, Yay I can Sim again!

and play with Bonney's awesome house! It's perfect!

I kinda understand the Ness and Jess Maree death threats. I really don't get the threats for you, though. Is it because you made the lot without any bathrooms or did it start before that?

Heh. I always saw you as a whale.

A quick ETA because...now that I actually have pictures, I should post this here. This isn't really showing off as much as it is asking for suggestions.

I recently decided to retexture some of XMsims' earlier hairs. I've currently got two colors down on one hair, but I'm really not confident about the textures. They look too dry and maxis-like to me.

here's the first one, blonde:
(http://img61.imageshack.us/img61/6489/earlypreview01blondetr9.png)

and the brown one:
(http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/7137/earlypreview02browncr9.png)

Any tips on how I could make it look less muddy?

That blonde is a bit too yellow for my tastes. I would get a bit more ash in there.  I cannot comment on the brown, as I cannot see it.

D'oh. I knew I shouldn't have tried to match the 'sunny blonde' color. I'll lighten it up.

Plum, I can't wait for those to get past moderation queue. I hope you add matching boots (red on red, yellow on yellow)

Quote from: brainiac

I don't really texture, but I would say use a maxis texture as a base, make the texture fit the hair better. And then maybe add a touch of highlight. The hair is a little too yellow for me as well. If you're going to do "red" I'd suggest not making the red look like fruit punch, maybe a darker maxis red would do the trick.

Thanks guys.

To those who plan on barging into my backyard, the more the merrier. Lots of rum to go 'round.

I love that house Chris. I can imagine my sims living there, is it on the beach or does it appear to be on the beach?

It's a 2x2 lot, which I stupidly forgot to mention on the site, doh. So it's not really a beach lot, but I guess it could fit into that theme, if placed in the right area. The real house is surrounded by trees and such, so it's pretty much hidden.

Thank you very much for the tips :) And does this look (http://img141.imageshack.us/img141/2603/vibrantred01ln5.png) like a fruity color? It's not the only red color I have planned (there's a orange-ish one and a pink color for a punk style), but it is the 'main' red, which means it'd be pretty bad if I've screwed it up :P

A bit more orange, and a little less red would do. It'll come along nicely then.

Anouk, i love that mowhawk for the ladies. Thanks for sharing it with us, am such a fan I do have an honest question though if i may ask you. Any thought of making the side braid i saw for the guys? I myself, as a few i know of personnally, would like it for our goth guys. But if it is trouble then i totally understand, as i know people hate it when someone asks for stuff i was not actually asking, just wondering if you had a fleeting moment with a curious spark of creativity for weird requests; if it would ever be at all possible was all....*The mowhawk hair Rocks ingame, thank you*

On the spur of the moment, I decided to mesh a pillow and blanket bedding deco thingie. Those that bugged me for bedding related thingies on MSN should feel victorious - you've got what you wanted you monsters.  :D I've got one for single beds, and one for double beds.  Here's a picture of it in milkshape, because this couldn't be more vague without it.

(http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/9274/beddingquestionfv7.jpg)

To be clear, it is only the grey bits that will be included, not the pink (which is the maxis bedding mesh for beds and just shown for a guide and fullness).

I have one question, needed to be decided for the mapping.  Should the deco set have a repository method (it takes the texture from maxis bedding - namely the quilt - like the one million beddings on my site) or should it have its own colouring which means lots of recolour files?

Hmm, even if it's already decided, I'd throw a vote against the respository with the Maxis beddings.  Just because I find myself never using anything else that coordinates with the bedding (I have curtains and rugs).  It's just too matchy.  And I don't download my bedding with the thought of it coordinating with my other bedding when used as the texture of some other object.

Granted, I know some things are just that matchy in reality.  I have a dressing table and its skirts were made to match the curtains and bedspread that my grandmother had in one of her bedrooms quite a few years ago.  However, it merely coordinates with my current bedspread!  XD

Post by: calalily on 2008 August 01, 05:56:45
Granted, I know some things are just that matchy in reality. 

 :) No it won't need to match - it will pick up all the bedding textures you have, independent of the bed.  So you could (using my own as an example) have my asian bedding 1 as the bedspread, but monochrome bedding 14 for the blanket.  Imagine you have two beds in the room - they don't have to have the same bedspread.

You can of course make it all the same pattern if you are Atwat, but I won't be doing that.  :D

But I'll see what I can do.  :)

I hope your's doesn't end up with a silly shadow like mine did.  I never could track down the whyfors.  And I love your pillows.

Most of the time those damn things are welded vertices, or one vertice being behind the other just a little bit.  They drive me nuts too and I try to avoid them as there's no way to texture them out.

Whaddaya mean, we got our way? I'm still waiting for the fractals.

You got fractals ages ago. Bright Bedding page 2, numbers 56, 61, 62, 63, 65, 66 - all fractals.

He's done and uploaded (at least to my journal thing).
I uploaded a barbie-skin version to MTS2, but it's still in the moderation queue.
If you don't mind Non-Barbie skin (femmy nipples and a bit of nether hair), then you can get him on my journal now.
His hair is terrible on polygons, so I made a bunch of warnings. :(

I love the Red and pink ones (on the right), you should really have her carry a picnic basket with food in it... it'd be a new fetish thing. If there are straps and they are photoskinned I'd suggest doing an alpha edit on them.

The green one looks like you used the emboss filter, I think that was unnecessary, what I would do is use that design, but instead of making it look embossed, give it a white or black border.

The pink one on the left is very nice.

The striped one is very nice.

Love the striped one, Topaz! I'd suggest giving all of them some more shadows, I think. Basically, you have the highlights nailed down, but there's no shadow that corresponds with it. Or there is, or it's too faint to be noticeable. Just darkening those a bit would do the trick. :)

And fway, I'll give you all my moneys for those GORGEOUS seperates.  :o

Well, I do have a different name over there, so they won't know who I am AT ALL. And since there really is no hierarchy of being promoted from Sheep (regular user) -> Slave (SAs) -> Aristocrats (FAs) I'll probably be one by next week. Don't worry, that outfit's a decoy up there, we know that Atwat and company reads this. I'll be sure to tell you all about it. It's probably going to be a good infiltration, if I get through the levels. Teehee. This sounds like fun. I'll be sure to donate to the booty, I have to look for the donate button. Thoma$$ won't know what hit him once we know his secrets.


Excellent. I'll have to fake everything like saying "OMG that's beautiful Chaz! I just love your sims"; "ohh evi I just love the texture you chose" *vomits

Seriously? Then you suck (at making ugly things.)  ;D Those actually have potential, although plain, or maybe just because they are plain. With proper shading they'd look good.

Want TSR quality? You need patterns that makes your eyes bleed, mixed with more patterns that make you dizzy, weird alphas and details done in MSPaint.

I have yet to clothe my sims with your outfits. I have been busy finding a stupid dialog thing to fix the "Who needs a ride" option when a sim is WALKING with their group on an outing. It was a bitch to find. But I finally found it and now, your sims don't have "who needs a ride?" when waling OR driving, because EAxis was soo smart to add walking to the car options. ::) So I had to change it to "Who's coming along?" which makes so much more sense for both walking and driving. Anyway, I'm sure this won't bork up your game unlike my last mod (the community to resi one, take that out if you haven't).

Technically, it's an old creation of mine but it's the only thing I currently have on mts2 and I think some people here might like it for their game.

I felt in a creating mood tonight.
I'm enjoying making simmies too.
Tonight I made one outfit as gymwear, can wear as every day too, and made a new sim.
Here's the outift
(http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b306/bethbrit2001/sims%202/snapshot_f559db96_95a50da4.jpg)

And here's the sim I made, her name's Sabrina.
(http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b306/bethbrit2001/sims%202/sabrinahead.jpg)

I made another two sims before too, really chuffed with them but no idea where to upload them :[
A couple of the girls have pay hair on them so MTS is a no no, and I don;t really understand the rules of uploading simmies at Gos (I don't have Clean Installer installed) so where can I uploads thems?!?!

Here are the other two simmies for anyone who's interested:

Beth, Sabrina and the others are adorable. :)  You can always upload them on mediafire and link here if you want to.

I'm retexturing an old XM hair here using Nouk's textures, but I'm having problems with the blonds. 

(http://xs230.xs.to/xs230/08325/blondtexturesxmhair2713.jpg)(http://xs230.xs.to/xs230/08325/blondtexturesxmhair639.jpg)(http://xs230.xs.to/xs230/08325/blondtexturesxmhairdark109.jpg)

These are the three I have so far.  The first two were supposed to be platinum and strawberry blond, but they look kind of yellow to me now. :-\  Does the last one work as dark blond, or are the highlights too light?  Or is it closer to light brown than dark blond?

Would anyone even want three blonds (or four, since I don't even seem to have a regular blond yet)?  I've never made anything except for personal use before, and I tend to make loads of colors because I like to have non-standard ones as well (probably because my own hair color is one of those that never gets made :P), but I'm not sure anyone else would care.


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: Millie on 2008 August 08, 18:46:15
One definately is too yellow for a platinum blonde. Number two works well as a strawberry blonde (it's almost a perfect match for my sisters natural hair colour, and number three works fine as a dark blonde, in my opinion  :)


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: Jojoba on 2008 August 08, 18:59:09
You could try reducing the saturation down just a tad - that may get the platinum blond look you are after :) Have edited that hair myself (with Nouk's textures as well *coughs* am so not original..) and had problems getting a decent blond with it. But thats because I really can not do decent blond hair in general

Which makes me think..*quick hijack*..anyone know of any decent tutorials/tips of how to make good blond recolours? I give cookies, yes :D

Post by: SoggyFox on 2008 August 08, 19:09:36
I've given thought to trying to use Nouk's textures on the eaxis hairs I like the style of, as well as making a ful set of each shade she's used - I love the copper-red and only some of her hairs come in that shade. >.>  Did I mention I mostly use Nouk hairs?

those are on mts2 aren't they ;) I think I saw them today and loved them! Any plans to do them with jeans?

As for the hairs, I love the first two colors. First one isn't platinum but I still like the color. Maybe add another color to make a platinum and keep that one, but the third one strikes does has a little to much brown in it to be dark blond.

The HP ones will be up at sublime at some point in the near future.  the plain ones are up at mts2.  I can toss some logos onto a jeans version.  I think adele has a hoodie mesh that'd work nicely for that.  :)

I love HP! I would like to have those IRL! Are they for Y/A too?

I think they are, but don't quote me as I haven't checked.  they use that hooded shortsleeved sportdress thing that came with the basegame, and I'm pretty sure that was available for y/a.

Post by: Quinctia on 2008 August 09, 03:47:22
It actually doesn't matter what the base was available for, I think it will be available for whatever age you imported it as in bodyshop.  But you can easily change the flags using SimPE's clothing scanner or the Wardrobe Wrangler.  All the adult clothing in my game gets made available for YA/Adult/Elder.  (And some of my toddler/children clothes get put in for both genders, too.)

I like those hairs, Souvenirs! I think the first one makes a good regular blond.  I have yet to find a texture for this hair I like, but your set looks promising.  Yay!

I just submitted 11 pajamas to MTS2.  These are my favorites:

Post by: chemistrycourtney on 2008 August 09, 13:26:40
fun jammies.   ;D  and as far as the hairs go, if you want the first one to be more platinumlike, I agree that a desaturation is in order.  That's what I would do at least.  For the second one, if you were trying for a strawberry blonde, a layer with a peach wash would work for that. 

eta: if I go back and change the outfits so that they are enabled for young adults, does that mean that people will then have to have university to use them?  I completely don't mind changing their availability to include Y/A usage, but I was just wondering if that would make them not just base game available.


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: Souvenirs on 2008 August 09, 20:22:58
I'm always on the lookout for more normal female pajamas!  *goes to download*  ...And MTS2 isn't working.  Oh, well.  *keeps refreshing*

I desaturated the blond, and I think it's better, or is it still a little too yellow?  Is it light enough?  When I make it much lighter than this, it starts to look more white than platinum. :-\  I want to keep it on the blond side--I'll make a gray/silver one later.

(http://xs230.xs.to/xs230/08326/blondtexturesxmhairplat673.jpg)

I'm not entirely happy with the others (the roots look too dark, even though that's not very visible in the pictures I posted), so I'll continue playing with them.  And these are only the blonds. :P  I haven't even started on the reds and browns yet.

If you live in America, you can always ask your parents for a gift card that's a credit card-ish. I believe I bought milkshape with that...

I actually think you're better off trying to learn Blender; for one thing, it's totally free, and imo, is a much better piece of software than Milkshape is (and one that is more comparable to higher end 3D modelling/animation applications as well). Plus, you might discover that you absolutely hate meshing/modelling and then you'll be out 30 bucks :D.

However, I'm with Calalily; learning to model and mesh isn't going to be easy no matter what you decide to use, so don't be under the impression that a different programme will automatically be easier to pick up. All 3D modelling programmes, from Milkshape all the way to Maya, have steep learning curves and can be very frustrating for someone who has limited experience, so you've really got to be prepared to deal with that and knuckle down until you figure it out. As for learning Blender, the tutorials on the website aren't the greatest. I'd recommend using The Blender wiki book (http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Blender_3D:_Noob_to_Pro) to get yourself started.

Thanks I guess xP I wanted to use Milkshape because MTS2 highly recommends it, they say you can make animated hair or meshes with Blender. So that's what I was concerned with.

And seeing as I have Photoshop, is there a special texture I can use for the hair if I ever manage to make a mesh?

And how would I make a Mesh compaitble with a Sim head? Blenders confusing me again D:

This is part of that steep learning curve Mando was telling you about. You're going to have to pick through tutorials yourself and figure it out. Milkshape will be confusing too. You should tackle texturing first, then move on to meshes. Hair is the toughest I hear, so you're better off starting with simpler stuff.

If you live in America, you can always ask your parents for a gift card that's a credit card-ish. I believe I bought milkshape with that...

I think I used a vanilla mastercard... anywho google that.

Oh yes! I forgot, I will most likely get 15 bucks from my Grandmother for my Birthday. And probably a Giftcard to Wal-Mart from my neighbor. Now I just have to see how much it costs at Wal-mart.

This is part of that steep learning curve Mando was telling you about. You're going to have to pick through tutorials yourself and figure it out. Milkshape will be confusing too. You should tackle texturing first, then move on to meshes. Hair is the toughest I hear, so you're better off starting with simpler stuff.


Meh. Not kidding. I'm *ahem* older than you it seems, and therefore should be wiser by default (as if  :D) I so couldn't do it. Mind you, having a large family, I don't really have the time to sit and devote hours of my time to it. I found I would just start to learn something, then I'd have to get up and get on, and when I got back to it, I was all confuzzled again. To top that, my brain does not work in technological circles, and nor do I learn easily by reading stuff. I learn far easier with someone showing me how to do it, but that's not an option.

Still, I hold out hope that one day, I might be able to make a decorative stick  :D

I grabbed Bruno's tops from MTS2. They look awesome in the game! I need those jeans w/sneakers he has in the pic, though because they look great with them. I only have one pair of CC jeans in my DLs and they dont look right.  Does anyone know who made those jeans?

The jeans with converse are most likely by HystericalParoxysm, however, there are people in the community who made recolors, as well as giving them new shoes, or  a completely different mesh. Start off @ HP's downloads @ MTS2, or search for untucked jeans. You'll find a lot of goodies. Untuckables are one of the bread winners in my book. You'll also want more for your guys and teens and kiddos, too. (I haven't found any for elders, nobody thinks of them :'( ) Fanseelamb has many for guys. Migamoo has done lots of untuckables for teens and children, as well as Kaylyn06 (?) for teen guys, oh and Plush_Apple too, well those are the ones I know of at the moment, but there are a lot more people in the community who have made more untuckables.

The rolled up jeans, and the ones with sneakers,  I'm not sure of. The short shorts are by Sentate, also @ MTS2.

Insim has loads of great downloads. It's well worth registering IMO. Finding a specific download is a PITA though, unless it's one of the featured creators. Not a big deal though, you'll get side tracked as you're searching and find lots of things to bloat your download folder with.

working on some dress recolors of a dress from Poison Pink Lemons. 

(http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g287/chemistrycourtney/Sims%202%20Projects/ppldaydressrecolorsteaser.jpg)

I feel like it needs MOAR colors, or maybe a pattern of some sort?  Any thoughts?  (not plaid, courtney and plaid patterns don't go well together, as I make them look like the bad.)

Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: Millie on 2008 August 12, 16:53:25
Possibly. I like those dresses, and I would quite like to see them in a girly feminine print - summery, that kind of thing.

This is a really dumb question, possibly, but I am new to all of this - what is the difference between the way you do the textures, and say, liana does her textures?
I much prefer yours.
Would I be right in saying, that yours is drawn painstakingly by hand, where Liana possibly takes images of the net and uses patterns from there?

I think I got down how Chaz does his sims, which is by the above method, only with the faces, yes?

excuse my ignorance please, but I am interested!


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: chemistrycourtney on 2008 August 12, 17:45:23
well, doesn't liana photoskin?  I add shading in and texture by hand, generally speaking.  the textures right there that you see were initially done by meshmaker, over at Poison Pink Lemons.  I redefined the texture, after I recolored the dresses, but the initial drape you see there, was not an original idea.  But yes, on the things I do, I add layers in and add highlights and shadows manually to where the outfit would naturally denote a shade or light.  I'm pretty sure Liana photoskins, and does not adjust where light and shadows fall.  (even when i do mild photoskinning, i still adjust light and shadows so they make sense.) 


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: Millie on 2008 August 12, 17:52:01
Right, thanks Chemistrycourtney. It all becomes a little clearer now. Photoskinning was the term I was looking for!


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: Quinctia on 2008 August 12, 17:54:21
Without looking at the texture up close, I don't know if the fabric of the dress is draped the right way for this to work, but it would be neat to have a solid color bodice and a patterned skirt, or even the whole dress with a pattern, but a solid gauzy layer over the bodice.

This is, of course, assuming it looks right for the fabric of the dress.  From the angle of your shot, it looks to me like it could go either way.  :)


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: chemistrycourtney on 2008 August 12, 18:00:06
well, different textures can be applied. lol.  IIRC, the mesh itself is pretty much the same shape as the large flowery nightgown that came with the game... and then it had an interesting texture applied to it. (by the good people at PPL.)  they have it there in blue, and i like it a lot, and decided I needed to have it in many more colors.  but i'll get it in bodyshop, and see if maybe I can finesse something interesting with the initial texture, and then something with a totally different texture as well.

I like those dresses, and would definitely download them for my simmies, as is!
As for more colors and patterns and whatnot, I agree with Millie about feminine, summery patterns. The PPL one is kind of bright, which in my head equates to summer, so some bright colors would not go amiss in my game.
But if you released them as is and never touched them again, I'd still love you forever 'n' ever.  :D

I want those panties for adults!  (...and me, but I can't wear pixels, dammit.)  They could be paired with a white bra or nothing.  I was just wishing the other day I had more than ONE bit of adult underwear that was bottoms only.  My sims that sleep in their underwear are probably ditching the underwire first, but I'm being logical again.

I found these curtains (http://sims-2.gameslife.ru/objects_sets12.htm) the other day through a WCIF thread, and I was disappointed to find they weren't recolors of Inge's Auto Shades, because they really looked like it.

So I'm MAKING THEM BE RECOLORS OF THE AUTOSHADE, DAMMIT.  It was a little more complicated than I originally thought.  I got to make two states with various amounts of opacity.  I'm about to go to bed, but sometime in the next day or two I'll load up the game for some preview shots.  And then upload them.

(http://pics.livejournal.com/rikkulidea/pic/00015wh0.jpg)
Here's a quickie preview I snapped while doing my whole "better make sure things look okay before I do things this way 20+ more times" thing.

I was considering making at least some of the undies for adults but I wasn't sure if anyone would love mamegoma and Ariel panties as much as me.  :}

I'll look into it next time I get bored.  Right now I'm working on dresses.  If anyone else wants to do anything with my creations they're welcome to though; I'll even give up the PSD or textures or whatever.

My Sims need more braless panties to sleep in too, though, now that Quinctia mentions it.  :D

I agree with Topaz, although I'm glad my mom told me to take it off at night, because I'm really not sure I would have figured it out at night.  Well now, maybe, now that I'm so close to being a "grown woman"  but before definitely not.  Up until last year I thought I was an A, turns out I'm a C.  Gee I can't believe I brought that up. :P

Plum, I love those undies, they're so cute...although I doubt I'll be able to have that many recolors  :'( for a subsequent lack of a game to put them in ;D 

And the teen outfits now have some really great recolors!  Nice!

Thanks!  I will say again that they aren't MY textures, I snagged them off of Sim2Play's Inosign Curtains, which I thought about just using instead.  But they were the perfect size for the Autoshade and I love that mesh to bits already.

Got things packaged and stuff, and I put up a post on my sims journal here (http://rikkulidea.livejournal.com/36465.html), if anyone's interested.  Also have more screencaps, and this one (http://pics.livejournal.com/rikkulidea/pic/0001hb13) showcases how much just adding a little bit of transparency adds to the effect of these things.

It would hurt me to do that. Sitting around without a bra is just fine, but I walk about as fast as I can possibly go (both best friends are tall, and you have to be fast and limber to get around the tourist brigade). They would be smacking the crap out of me.

Thank you plum for the psd... unfortunately before you sent it I had already started working on them and have about 12 of them done  :-[ I suppose I'll finish the little girls tomorrow since I have the day off, but the women's conversion might take a while since that might be a bit more complicated than copy/paste/change hue

I have to wear a bra otherwise my back hurts. My boobs aren't that big either, just D cups. I can't sleep in a bra though, it'd be torture!

When I was a little younger, I was always so jealous of these girls with biggish boobs..but then I got some friends with said big boobs who complain about it constantly. I'm pretty content with my B cup now. I have enough back problems just because I have a spine that curves inward far too much without the boob weight to add to it. What is it they say, anything more than a handful is a waste of boob? Just kidding, ladies. :)

I recolored the H&M "runway"-ish curtains, well because I got tired of the 3 color choices they gave, and will better compliment other furniture. I gave the recolors "fruity" names. Comes in 19 flavors:

Apricot, avocado, blueberry, coconut x2, concord grape, fruit splash, gooseberry, guava, Key Lime, kiwi, mango, papaya, peach, pear, persimmon, pineapple,  plum, and strawberry.

Giffed because I'm so lazy.

Okay, actually getting to -see- alot of Chaz's stuff, and hearing that the faces look identical if you remove the masks, I decided to share the one sim I've ever made for upload [ outside of my selfsim ].

I just used a normal skin - maybe this is helped by the fact that there are no colour photos of Lillian Gish in her youth to work from, except for paintings :)

I modeled the mesh though, took me for freaking ever to get her to match up, and I actually took photos as I worked and did overlays to make sure everything was the right distance apart.  I -like- how it came out, anyway, and couldn't have done it without all the wonderful pieces I used for her.

(http://i281.photobucket.com/albums/kk221/hekkahekkawhat/Sims2EP7_1751-1.jpg)
Used SnapObjectsToGrid on the furniture, otherwise objects will bleed through without it, I'm thinking of reducing the vertical size of the mesh here, so furniture can be placed nicely without the bleedthrough.

Thank you!

Well, it was just reducing the mesh to a couple of tiles, I added a couple of parts to the rod so it's "hung" off the wall and gouged in the wall too. Then replacing the mesh of one curtain that has that many tiles, then using the repository technique, and voila... curtains XD. I'd like to make a 3 tiled curtain, but I'm probably going to bork up something. :/ I was mainly doing this so they'd look nice with OFB windows, and they're perfect for displays and whatnot. I decided to play around with milkshape, and make use of something. So, basically everything is in-tact, just shrunk. They'll be in moderation queue soon, I haven't gotten around to it because I've been trying to fix the two tiled curtains and reduced 2 tile mesh. I'm also going to see if the mesh can be transparent so you can see through still. I'm crossing my fingers for that. So, these will be uploaded as a set. I'm not sure on how to increase the number of tiles on an object, I heard that you use the cres for it?

I also have to make diagonals soon. Otherwise who'd want crappy diagonals?

These are the furniture length curtains, they're coming in 1 tile only though, because I had to fix the others so they'd line up better and not bleed through eachother unfortunately. So, these will probably look good on windows and above furniture. Also, the windows with large trims might bleed through, but these were particularly made for the inner parts of the house.

ETA: these curtains can't be made transparent unfortunately. I tried every opacity out there, no luck. I believe it's because the texture has two main parts to it.

Why not clone something that's 3 tiles, and then you don't have the issue.

I thank you, Calalily. I was thinking of doing that, but I would probably have to change something to categorize it as a curtain. *shrugs I mean, I want to make these curtains to be used as REAL curtains, and found out that curtains automatically snap to a wall. Now, would this actually require changing the BHAV if I cloned a three tile object, but didn't clone a curtain?

Or is there a simple way of turning a two tile object into a 3 tile one? I read Numenor's tutorial on reducing the number of tiles, but there aren't any that shows how to increase. Or am I just stupid and didn't know that I could put 1.5 into the CRES (or whatever resource that edits the number of tiles) and be done?

Well there is a 3 tile painting in the Base game, so it would only go on a wall if you cloned that.  I'm not sure if they "snap" the same way - I haven't noticed really.

I don't have any idea. I toyed with it for the bedding decor, but it seemed to be easy to pick up anyway, so I didn't bother. Those with OCD who are bothered by it can do it themselves - I'm only concerned with how easy it is to pick up and place. It seems to involve BHAVs too. I *think* this is the right tutorial. http://www.eternal-echo.net/sims/tutorials/footprint/ (http://www.eternal-echo.net/sims/tutorials/footprint/)

hey fway while I was browsing around for sims 2 content, someone had made a 3-tile curtain using the one tile, and just expanded the object. You could try that :)


http://www.mediafire.com/?3tjhin9ndti

there kiddies is the download for tops to plum's bottoms. I will re edit this post once I can get some in game pictures. I didn't do all of them for time constraints and for my mental health (good lord there are a lot of undies!) I basically took the maxis tank top off of their  undies and added to plum's then changed the hue to match the undies. I didn't use plum's psd, so the top doesn't completely touch the undies... I think it looks more realistic that way.

The only undies I didn't add a top for was the disney,cartoon ones, and the sanyo/cute cartoon ones. All the ones with patterns have tops, and all the plain ones with the exception of the white undies and the colored bands. I didn't see a point to add tops to those.

If you have plum's undies then download these they shouldn't cause problems but for future reference I have all ep's and sp's with the exception of ikea.

Once I get more time I will work on the others.... I want to add patterns to those :)

Thanks you two! I can finally make a 3 tiled curtain for that pesky OFB window. I think in the terms of safety I'll look at echo's tutorial first, I wouldn't happen to know abut that person's policy on using their object as a base Missbonbon.


Aaand. . . I found a slight problem that I may need to fix with the curtains. I was told that I had to modify the normals.

There is another one here: http://fairywitchsims.com/decor/moroccan-medina-curtains/

Anyhoo, you'll have to register at both sites to get the meshes, but it's free. You may wish to have some sunglasses handy because Sapphire Sims is a blinky twinkly wonderland...

Fake edit, from what I see so far, not a ruddy thing about paying for stuffs or donation sets, so this could be a good thing.

Some views of the finished lot - all playtested and working fine. One problem, and it's not huge. I used the allow45degreeangleofrotation cheat when placing benches on the built up fountain (and the snapobjectstogrid) The animation is a little wonky with this, but sims can sit/lounge etc on these benches.

So, if anyone is interested in having it, give me a shout and I'll upload it somewhere for you. It's got a lot of custom content (flowers and the like, wallpaper and terrain, mainly) and I couldn't tell you where I got half of it from! I'm assuming that when you package a lot, it adds meshes and things to the file, so the objects will work in game?

Oh I put benches on 45 degree angles all the time.  Especially park benches.  I wouldn't worry about it.  If you playtest it and it's usable, that's good enough for most people.

If you want to pack it up and share it, you'll need Clean Installer.  To make sure nothing hack-like is hanging around, and also, if you're using items with 20 recolors and you only used one, you'll want to clean the others out to get the package size down to something manageable.  I had a house I decorated for a contest at GoS and it was 60 MB before I cleaned out extra recolors.

One thing I've found, and I don't know if the situation is different depending on your game version, but I never end up with recolors of Maxis's objects in my lot packages.  So, I actually try to avoid decorating with Maxis recolors in lots I plan to share, unless I know exactly where they are a) in my downloads folder, so I can stick them in my zip with the packaged lot or b) on the internet, so I can point in that direction.  Needless to say, I only use that for very important (to me!) things like the invisible driveway recolor, copper kitchen appliance recolors, and showerstall/toilet stall recolors. XD

I like to make random default replacements and for my personal use, but I sometimes ask if other people would like them if they're not too crappy (like stuff I've actually made myself xD) or would be against someone's TOU. I don't see the point in hoarding files.

With that said, I've always hated the nanny dress for some reason, so I replaced the mesh and two textures with outfits from Bastdawn's elder sweaters with jeans set (http://modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=240557). I did lavender and blue for my game, but I've already put together replacements with all the other textures in case anyone would want them. I haven't uploaded them yet because I don't want to back up all the extra packages on my 4shared if no one else will use them and I only need lavender and blue. So, just let me know if you're interested.

Okay, here are the nanny replacements. http://www.4shared.com/file/60070922/f65c6fc3/nanny_default_replacements.html

There are two nanny textures, so you'll have to choose a default texture for each. I added the main textures and alternate textures to two separate folders, so choose one replacement from each folder and then delete the rest. The files are labeled to match BastDawn's pictures so use them as a reference to help you choose.

I stuck some boots on this Fashion Stuff dress. Uploaded it up here (http://community.livejournal.com/strangepixels/3808.html?#cutid1). First post in YONKS.

Since this is a new mesh, I won't need Fashion Stuff pack will I?

If there were a subforum, or even a thread for the collection and filtration of Annoyingly Stupid Questions, I'd post it there. I'll pass around the house bottle of Appleton's, and hope for a bit of humoration on this one...

Is there a central repository, where members' creations are uploaded, if they choose to share the files for download? Some of the creations I've seen referenced, are absolutely gorgeous and are on my "omgimusthazthat" list. There's a handful I'd love to have for my own use ingame. Looking at some of the pictures you giys (and gals) have created, I am amazed at the talent here.

And I really, really hate to be a pest and PM someone to ask for the file...too much like begging, and no Pirate Wench, let alone a Mistress in good standing, would resort to such reprehensibility. If I ever create anything I thought anyone might like, I would happily make the file available for download for anyone who wanted it.

simple as going into the package file, going to the TXMT resource and changing staSetAlphaBlendMode:none to staSetAlphaBlendMode:blend and there you could make a transparent file, but it depends on the mesh I believe...

I just can't win with these things, I found that there's this wierd mesh fuckup when you look at the curtains at an angle, but that's only if they're transparent. :/

That happens to me with clothing too, I think... when you look through the cloth and it is 'double', folded over, it has a weird thing going on. It's probably a display issue from the game itself.

On another note: Personally I'd love a little subforum under the self sim sharing thing, where creators can share their stuff. But I don't think Pescado finds it useful.

Anyone ever heard of Banksy? (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banksy)
He's a graffiti artist, not many people know of him as he's very sly at making his art.
Anyway, I've used Aikea's mesh to put one piece of his art in the game.

Click here for pic (http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b306/bethbrit2001/sims%202/Creations/banksylittlegirl.jpg)

I'm happy with it, but don't know whether I should make more images or whether to upload that one piece.
It's 2 parts though, as the mesh is only the length of one wall part so the balloon and the little girl are two seperate things

I think if anywhere, you could ask here for a file - we're all about sharing. I'm sure that they can either direct you to where it's available for download, or if they're feeling energetic upload it to media fire for all.  I can't think of anyone here who hoards their stuff - so just PM - I'm sure they'd be glad to tell you.  Ask in Ask a Pirate in Sharkbait if you're not really sure.  No one will eat you, as we are all download whores. :D

Beth you might want to check out this guy (http://www.insimenator.net/showthread.php?t=55917). He has a Bansky in the grafitti recolours. He also has some templates for offer. The meshes are from Numenor and there might be something you would find useful. Just skip past the animation stuff and go to the poster and graffiti overlays. You could also check here (http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=178314), some more meshes you might find useful.

PS. Bansky Rules!!! Good choice. I was planning on doing some for my game just never seem to find the time.

I love Bansky Beth! and I also know the Banksy print made by Pixelated. I use his graffiti overlay ALL THE TIME, it uses that awesome base by Numeror. I am always anxious for more recolours, I haven't really seen many and it is such an amazing mesh!
If you wanted to, you could do the little girl in two one panel pieces, but there is a double you can use. Maybe use the double for the girl and the space between, and one panel for the balloon. :)
Either way I am excited for you! Moar wall murals, graffitti and rippped posters FTW!  :-*

Pretty nifty, huh?  It's got a bit of handpainting, and I managed to finish making a texture without getting frustrating and going "this is why I don't make CC!" for once.

I have a question, though.  Does anybody out there have a purpose for hair in this color:
(http://pics.livejournal.com/rikkulidea/pic/0001t0ac.jpg)

It's my high-saturated macaroni and cheese color base texture.  Just want to know if I should bother packing it and uploading at all, or just toss it when I'm done with the set.  (I suppose it'd be nice for your Grilled Cheese sims? XD)

Aw shucks, thanks  ;D

I'm working on a house next - BIG challenge for me. My houses are usually square, or two oblongs stuck together, on a perfectly flat lot. I'm not usually that fussed, as long as I can fit everything I need in them. Time to go upmarket, a little. I want a basement on this one, so that should be interesting  :D


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: Paden on 2008 August 25, 17:26:17
Here's a tip that our dear Hecubus gave me way back when. When making your basement, make sure the foundation is hollow. Take the connecting stairs and put one set in. When that is done, add another set to the landing that the first set made. Then add a third step to that and it will be deep enough. Take the leveling tool and bring it all to the lowest level, delete the steps and finish leveling. Then it's all ready to add walls. Beats the old method of flattening one square twelve clicks down...

When I have perfected some more advanced building techniques (hah), I'm going to have a go at making my own walls/floors/ground textures, to really personalise things.

But, for now, building techniques, it is  ;D

Post by: Theria on 2008 August 25, 18:53:18
I'm a little apprehensive after seeing the gorgeous lots before in this thread and its parent, but I figure that what I did was better than the stuff in the Ugliest Paysite thread, so...

I've never been much on building, but I followed a plan this time (http://www.houseplans.com/plan_details.asp?id=29708 (http://www.houseplans.com/plan_details.asp?id=29708)) and have sadly learned that I think I kinda suck. The outside looks all right, if not slightly boring, but the back of the house, and the interior is...meh, at best? So, I come to all of you, hat and rum in hand, in hopes of some real constructive critiques. Do your best/worst with me, people. I'm thick-skinned.

(http://i308.photobucket.com/albums/kk330/Miss_Ria/snapshot_00000001_f5bebb44.jpg)
As I was saying, the front of the house looks all right, if not a little bland. I figure some more landscaping, since this is a work in progress, and some deck clutter would help a little. My idea of landscaping is usually throw a tree in the corner and call it a night. Heh. Unfortunately, the few little inspired touches I put in don't show, like using a darker ground cover under the decking area, to make it a little more shadowed.

(http://i308.photobucket.com/albums/kk330/Miss_Ria/snapshot_00000001_d5bebb75.jpg)
zomg, side view, and yes, the bottom of the chimney matches the rest. I'm guessing that's just a shadow, because it matches on the back view. Again, hints for landscaping?

(http://i308.photobucket.com/albums/kk330/Miss_Ria/snapshot_00000001_15bebb68.jpg)
And the mighty back, which is...the back. And boring. I'm all about symmetry, so if I were to add a deck to the master suite, I would also need one for the other side, which is the en suite bathroom. The house is almost on the back of the lot, because I was using a narrow house plan that's intended to take up the whole lot. But still, there has to be something that can be done.

(http://i308.photobucket.com/albums/kk330/Miss_Ria/snapshot_00000001_75bebbb6.jpg)
I probably spent almost an hour getting this little corner right, and I'm rather proud of it, but it's about the ONLY good furniture setting that I can see in there. The opposite side looks bland and boring.

(http://i308.photobucket.com/albums/kk330/Miss_Ria/snapshot_00000001_15bebbd9.jpg)
Opposite side, including the entrance and the stairs to the second level.

(http://i308.photobucket.com/albums/kk330/Miss_Ria/snapshot_00000001_b5bebc25.jpg)
Not bad kitchen, boring as hell dining room.

(http://i308.photobucket.com/albums/kk330/Miss_Ria/snapshot_00000001_d5bebb9a.jpg)
AND ground floor shot. I have no clue as to what to do with the big empty space there, whether to leave it, separate and clutter the area, or what.

I haven't done too much on the second floor yet, aside from the master suite, because I'm not sure whether I'm going to keep struggling with this, or just call it a loss. I like it, a little, but I was really hoping to get away from my usual "throw a box on the ground, separate with walls, throw on a roof, yay insta!house!" routine. I already know that I have to re-do the en suite because I somehow stopped following the routine of the sort of understated colors and kinda connecting theme and made my dream black and white bathroom instead, which really doesn't match the master suite.

So...please be honest? Love or hate it? Any advice, ideas, or helpful hints?

Oh, and if it's too graphics-heavy, lemme know, and I'll try to figure out a slideshow instead. That could be an experiment all in itself without throwing in a picture of the Vegas trip, although baby tiger cubs might be better on the eyes. Heh.

Ok, thanks Hecubus  :D

I have hit a problem though, and I can't find anything to remedy it. When I go into build mode, there are build tiles all over the place - floating in the air, and whatnot. It's a largeish area that this problem covers. It's like there are mulitple levels, but there aren't?  ???

Here's a screenshot - has anyone got any ideas please?

Theria, I really like your fireplace corner area, but that rug is driving me bonkers. I've wondered for some time now if there is a way to make rugs look less funky when placed using SnapObjects. As for landscaping, a little grass never goes amiss. Personally, I've become very dependent on Macarossi's (http://sumomo.modthesims2.com/member.php?u=44745) flowers for landscaping, but not so great if you're trying to cut down on CC.

Millie, I'm assuming that you're trying to make all those tiles one level? Use some flooring, but only put it on the level you want, and the game will add more tiles around it. Keep adding flooring until it's all one level. When you're finished and it's all one level, just delete the flooring and you will have uniform blank tiles (if that's what you want).

OK, when I make a house with a basement, I make a solid foundation, then put walls around the whole damn thing. Then, I hollow it out and use Hec's method to dig it out, then put tiles onto the first floor. Put them around the foundation first, that should bring any floaters down. Put flooring onto those and then put the walls into your basement, then the stairs. I've been using Marvine's spiral stairs from MTS 2, love those damn things.

Thanks Paden. I got that bit sorted......and now I'm stuck on the roofs!  :D I've tried the cheat to alter individual roof slope angle (as per snootysims) I followed their instructions, but nada. Nothing is happening. If I use the cheat from nightlife, it works fine (but I don't want them all at a lower angle, just one roof?

This is the instructions I followed - are they correct?

Enter cheat box.
 IndividualRoofSlopeAngle 50 and press Enter.
 Now hold down Ctrl and Alt keys and click on the roof section you wish to change.
 The roof you clicked on should jump to the angle of 50.
 If you want you can "lock" the roofs you have in placea now, although this doesn't affect the height change.
 Now for the second slope. Enter cheat box and type in IndividualRoofSlopeAngle 25 and Enter.
 The roof you clicked on should jump to the angle of 25.
 Save.

I entered the cheat, held down those keys, and left clicked the icon for the type of roof I wanted. I let go of the keys, and drew the roof as it should be (can't draw whilst holding them down) It appears at it's normal slope.

I'm sure I'm probably missing something - I just don't know what?

as for the rugs I was wondering why they do that? It doesn't do it on my custom rugs, just the maxis ones  ???

And as promised! In game pictures of the undies! I took them in CAS because I don't like little children running in my neighborhood (yes I play with aging off, and only tots) *I'll just post links since there's quite a few of them.....

Millie, it sounds to me like you're adding an extra step there. What you want to do is:
1) Add the roof
2) Enter the cheat (steps 1 and 2 can be done in either order)
3) While holding CTRL and ALT, click on the roof you want to raise/lower with the roofing tool (the one you use to place the roof in the first place)

I'm pretty sure you need to use the regular, non-individual roofslopeangle cheat if you want new roofs to be a different height. But you need to use the individual one if you want a variety of heights on one building.

Also, this cheat came with one of the mid-late EP's, so if you only have the first few it won't work. And I'm pretty sure it doesn't work at all on some of the roofs.

It doesn't work on the mansard ones, or the domes/spires. Very annoying, but you can work around the mansard problem by making a faux one with the half-mansard and copious tweaking between the floor constraints cheat and roof angle cheat.

Missbonbon, sorry to say, but... I can't see the resemblance at all on your sim. It looks like facial template #1 with the Chaz skin on it. :S Chaz's version isn't that good either, but I think he nailed the area around the eyes at least. The chin is way too big, though.

That's nice - but huge - I just don't think I could play that with the lag.  :'( Particularly since I have the nvidia issue, so the sea would look like crap after I turned off shaders.

That beach house would be really great! for whoever could play it....me is not one of them :'(  But you could try posting two different versions?  Because that would be a neat lot to have for those who could play it.


As for the Bale sim, it's kind of hard (for me) to say without knowing what reference photos you're using, but just looking at it and googling extra-large images, I kinda want to say he eyes are a bit too wide/big.  The nose might need to be wider generally...and then thin down the tip, because it seems to me it might be a bit too narrow?  And I think the tip is high, comparitively.  The jaw doesn't seem...'defined'...enough for me, if you know what I mean.  Then again, I am looking at photos with studio lighting and all that.  I hope I helped...believe it or not, I'm really trying not to be obnoxious.

I'm naturally a too nice person, but have pretty thick skin...but recently someone on the BBS really went off because they took it too personally when they weren't even involved...they really seemed offended, and I thought...maybe they have a point, so I apologized.  then they replace the post with a smiley and a quote of the original.  I have no idea what I did wrong in that conversation, but I really have worrying over it....seriously...I should know better by now...I wouldn't mind if I didn't think I'd really screwed up (that's what's bothering, not their response...just a jerk orginially...but whether or not I did something stupid.     No need to read that

(http://usera.imagecave.com/thecookiejar/RiverRoad/107RiverRoad.jpg)

More pictures are here (http://usera.imagecave.com/thecookiejar/RiverRoad/).

It's on a 2x2 lot and has some custom content (wallpapers, floors, outside stuff), but no furnishings on the inside because I wasn't sure which was best, totally decorated or just the basics (more a DIY).

I also used the floor elevation code for the basement garage and individual roof code.

Thanks for the input :)

Yeah he has a very weird head to sim.... so i was using a couple different photos of him actually.... which is probably why he doesn't look like him.... or my lack of talent :P

Those are the pictures I am using.... Right now I'm trying to actually edit the skintone a bit, because see how Christian Bale has the most unique nose in the universe? Now see in the first picture how the tip of his nose is? Well unless you look really closely at the nose you can't tell.... but Chaz actually put the tip of the nose just a tad to far down so I'm trying to figure out how to move it up/shade in the nose better...... And I know Christian Bale doesn't have freckles but I was wondering if there are any light freckles out there so I can get the skin effect like in the first picture?

and if anyone has any suggestions on a better hair as well.... The only color I can find remotely close to his is Roan's dark brown..... and that's all on long hair that's styled nothing like his  :'(

Wow, thanks guys! After the day from hell at work that I had (hey, it's not every day that you tell your boss that you're about ready to walk out), that definitely made my night! Y'all are great for the ego. On the upside, I now have my two days off, so I should be able to finish up and properly play-test the house, before possibly releasing it to the public. As to where to do that, I'm at a loss. MTS2 crossed my mind, but damn, most of the houses I've seen there are far better than mine (especially with the landscaping, which I've learned is not my strong suit).

But for now, I can haz slide-show! The full 11 Chinook Drive (minus the smell of warm chocolate chip cookies and apple pie) :
http://s308.photobucket.com/albums/kk330/Miss_Ria/?action=view&current=d638895f.pbw (http://s308.photobucket.com/albums/kk330/Miss_Ria/?action=view&current=d638895f.pbw)

I re-did the walls throughout, changing them instead to a rather nice blue, chose a new rug, did a different kitchen floor, and finished the upstairs, which is now complete with a master suite, and en suite bath, two guest rooms (or kids rooms, for a family), and a public-y bath. Shots of all included.

I do, however, have a few questions. I did use some CC in the house, 5 altogether that I can count and all from MTS2. They're somewhat focal points to the house, such as the fireplace, walls, and shrubs outside. Is that a deterrent to people when it comes to downloading or does it not matter, so long as it includes a shopping list? I put together a quick non-CC version of it as well, but it doesn't seem to have that same feel to it that I like about the CC'ed interior. As well, it's a 2x3 lot, and comes in at a whopping $85, 434. Too expensive? I wanted it to screamwhisper a quiet elegance, but as I have never downloaded a house and build my own boxes, I haven't a clue.

I think I found my new love/obsession. I can barely recolour, can't mesh worth a shit...but I did learn earlier today that I rock at muttering, "Oh, go get fucked up the ass. Lube optional," to my boss as I walk by. He must've thought I said something nice, because he gave me the double thumbs up and called me a rockstar. Heh.

Damned Firefox. "Colour" is correctly spelled!

Theria I honestly don't mind downloading houses with custom content as long as:

1. Meshes come with the objects. I don't like hunting for blue glow objects.
2. If it's a small list that fine. I mostly prefer unfurnished houses because I already have about 4 gigs of downloads and don't need anymore!

As for Tapthatbooty... I forget the website, but theres a window you download and it's separate windows you place along the wall next to stairs and it cuts away the wall.... either that or Theria is using some other method that I haven't learned of :P

Oi, those fucking stairs. I followed a tutorial to use fencing as a stair rail, since the railing for those stairs looks like hot shit on a stick. It turned out more complicated than I had hoped, but essentially:

The whole house is built on a foundation. Once I figured out where the stairs were going to land, I took out the foundation beside them. I built the wall next to them (on the level of the flooring, NOT the ground, yay for floaty walls!...what is it, four clicks difference?), fencing ontop, and lowered terrain (CFE cheat, of course) on them until the wall matched up with the stairs. Replace foundation, and I put a wall on the back of the stairs, to match the rest of the house. It took me about three hours on that fucking rail, with much cursing and poker-smoking cigarettes until I was satisfied. I ended up with the split-level stairs only because, once again, hot shit on a stick without it. Unfortunately, you can't have your bastardized railing/wall go to the bottom square of the stairs. Normally, I just throw a flat bit of fencing there, but I didn't like the look. It did, unfortunately, give me a slightly bigger opening on the second floor, but I just fenced it off and told myself that Sims like hanging over the edge and waving at people as they ascend the stairs. Though the download suggested would probably be less of a headache than my routine. I, also, can't recall what it looks like with walls-down view. That might be an issue.

Honestly, it was a happy accident. I'm gonna load up the game first thing tomorrow morning and see if I can reverse-engineer that step building process, because something isn't sitting right with me about those instructions. I'm not sure yet if that buggers actually playing it, but that's my experiment for tomorrow.

Missbonbon, my list literally took up half of a standard index card when it came to the CC. Essentially, the fireplace, the chimney recolor, the shrubs, the front door, and the wall colors. I found suitable replacements for the wall colors, though I admit that they don't look as nice as the painted plaster CC ones, the door was easily changed to the same as the interior doors, and the shrubs to Maxis ones. The fireplace is the only thing I haven't replaced in the non-CC house, as I'm partial to the one in there. I think I also have  Lord Darcy's multi-deco slot in my game, which might be the only needed thing (then again, clutter is easily deleted. I just like the homier little touches).

falln_angel, cheers! It'll be nice not to have a red line under all the words with extra u's.

Fake edit: Mwah! I see where I cheated. Rather than just leave that extra wall on the back of the stairs, I built a bathroom there. It seems that the fencing isn't visible when first floor walls are up, only second floor walls, but it still looks decent, just dangerous.

Yep. Everytime all the time. Clean Installer is like the condom for my sims 2 games  :P

But I have read that when you package a house you have to go through and manually get rid of recolors or certain objects because they will accidentally get packaged in with it.

Just so I'm sure I understand this: for instance, the wall color I used is from a rather large set of them. It's better to package the house, remove download folder, install the house with ONLY the files that I used in my "clean" download folder and then repackage? Or would the wall color not matter and only the stuff like the fireplace and (possibly) the door?

Sorry, complete noob to this. I just rediscovered the package lot button. I did always wonder where it had gone.

Got my fingers crossed that this works.

I've completed 11 Chinook Drive and I think it's ready for consumption. The Testaverti family (Alpha, the father; Beta, the mother; Release Version, their teenaged daughter; Doggie, a giant mutt; Kitteh, the cat from hell) fully enjoyed their stay in the house and helped to point out a few pathing issues for me. The divider has been removed from around the fireplace, the couch and television have been moved in the media/family room, and the toilet in the downstairs bath can officially be used. Toilets all flushed, tubs and showers were used, mac'n'cheese was successfully made in the kitchen and consumed in the dining room, and the animals even had fun tearing down the furniture (though their heads kinda sink into the 45 degree chairs).

In the interest of fairness, and because I wanna call myself Baskin Robbins, just with a lot less flavours, there's four versions of the house: a fully CC version ($84,968), an unfurnished CC version ($30,119), a no-CC ($91,918)  and fully furnished version, and a no-CC unfurnished version ($32,439).

Note: I have all expansions and stuff packs installed, save for Apartment Life *glares at slow torrent*

If any of the links don't work (I tested them, but you never know), lemme know.

Thanks for the encouragement, guys. Now I'm off to start my collection of Stawamus townhouses set.

Well I tried and failed with that mesh with Banksy's art.

I went to check in game on the art I'd done with pixelhate's mesh, and it was all blocky, whereas with Aikea's it was "normal?"
I really liked Aikea's mesh, the only prblem with it is that it's only one tile. I wonder if she does requests :D
Anyway, I deleted them from in game so I didnt take screenies to show, so I shall just continue using Aikea's mesh, but whoever downloads the art (when I eventually finish them) will have to set it out in the right way.

Thanks falln_angel and FilthyPriest,    And you can just call me HL or Lunie.

If you have FT would this work?  Are they backwards compatible at all?

I don't have FT either, actually. I don't have anything post-SecuRom on the computer. I'll probably arrr them at some point, once my boyfriend gets a new computer. (At the moment he's stuck using mine.) He's got stronger morals than me, apparently, and it doesn't seem fair to force him to either play a pirated version of the game or not play at all.

Cookiepirate, I like it. It has a very refurbished churchy feel to it.

Just in case some of you don't check MATY much, we've had a challenge of sorts going on the past few months involving redoing crappy EAxis houses called "EAxis House of Fail". Lots of interesting results come from it, and the house changes every month. I grudgingly load up the test account and go CCless for the cause.

arrgh, thanks! I just had to figure out where to do it. The sad thing is, I like building so much that I have a few more on the go. I'm waiting (impatiently) for AL to finish so that I can finally make my condo development. Boy, if there was a mod or something to simulate road work, it would be just like my hometown! The town I live in is smack dab between the two hosting cities for the 2010 Olympics. Fucking Olympics.

cookiepirate, where in the world did you find those house numbers that you used on your lot? I've been searching for some, and only found ones that came on a plaque. I obviously need to take landscaping courses from you and FilthyPriest. Those lots are both gorgeous (as is the sim!).

Try the 2-tile wall art mesh on page 3 of objects at Club Crimsyn?

You'll have to wait a while longer  :D. I'm still working on the design inside, and I'm not sure whether or not to furnish it. I might upload a furnished and an unfurnished version.

I'm really chuffed that you like it. Usually my houses are on perfectly flat lots, just rectangles with rooms inside, but I've really enjoyed doing this. It's been a challenge  8) And, a lot of new stuff learned.

I don't think you need to contribute by creating - thanking people for their stuff, giving feedback when asked, testing files for people and making requests are all valid forms of participation and contribution.

It can even be as simple as showing some cc in a screenshots just in the normal gameplay thingie (I read a creator recently who squeed over the fact that someone loved her stuff so much they used it in a screenshot).

Post by: Millie on 2008 August 29, 09:34:24
What Calalily said.

You're also doing service to others, by doing this kind of thing. I don't have time to trawl sites looking for a piece of scrummy CC. I don't know many free sites at all, but if I see something I like in a screenshot, I always ask the creator where they got it from.
It advertises for those who make really nice stuff, you know  :)

Edited to add, the house (lite version) has been uploaded here

Does anyone know if there's another apartment door for AL- either in the game and I'm blind and can't see it or one that someone's made? I need one that opens the opposite way...if it was a regular door, I could just turn it around. Since it's not a regular door, turning it around just won't work. If there's not another one...would anyone be interested in making one?

If there's a regular request thread for this, please move it and accept my apologies for putting it in the wrong place.

There are some of the weirdest restrictions on building apartments. The floor edging borkination is probably the most annoying, but restrictions regarding attached yards on lots with foundations as well as private garages are bad as well. I figured out attached private garages/carport this weekend and am working on a duplex that uses them...just having a mental block regarding window choice.

Pretty soon, you'll be seeing some apartment/community hybrids from me pretty soon. Hopefully the areas like restaurants are functional in apartments, where townies would walk in and grab a bite to eat, because you can't enable home businesses. Bleh.

I'll make note of it, since I see townies walking by more hopefully it'll work out.



So, the NPCs for the cash registers/bars aren't activated, unfortunately.  I also hate the fact that everything is non-autonomous in the common areas, or so it appears. They don't seem to want to use the gym equipment, but love using the ballet bar. They don't even use that microphone as well as not eating at the restaurant downstairs either, which i am also pissed about, because I thought they would at least use those objects.

This has been driving me nuts throughout all the threads. Is it that hard to use the shift key? I'm not Grammar Policing. I'm just asking for basic sentence structure.

It would be nice, yes. Using capital letters is much appreciated and helps define where you end one sentence or begin another. Confused kitteh is confused.

Exactly, Paden. IMO, not using basic sentence structure makes the poster look like a 6.

Perfect Plants & Perfect Gardens
This is a rework of Inge's hack(s) from Simlogical.com. Gardens & shrubs will always stay in perfect condition. Doesn't stop butterflies and bees from appearing around flowerbeds. Will also stop weeds from spreading if they manage to appear from puddles. Perfect Gardens includes all features of Perfect Plants, but will also keep orchard trees and crops in perfect condition. Kinda cheaty, I know. That's why I made it optional.

Nouk, thanks for the tip. Maybe when I'm a bit less tired tomorrow morning I can have a proper look at the diagram and then have a go.
My skillz r limited, so I panic when I get requests lol :P

I made some more swimwear this week... I've now got 28, got to reach 30 before I upload! ;D

Thank you for your feedback :-* and generous proposals concerning setting up a website of my own. I actually _have_ been building such a site to act as a backup source for my MTS2 stuff; I have pretty much finished the layout and put down about half of the code. Dunno if I'm ever going to finish the project, never being fully satisfied with my work, plus I'm such a procrastinator. It's such a breeze to upload everything to MTS2, not having to worry about the technical details. I want to do it, but right now I don't have the energy to finish that particular project.

I've been working on my first hair.  :D I only intended to fool around and test out my ability to draw hair textures, but it's come together well enough that I will complete the project.

(http://i460.photobucket.com/albums/qq326/wanna_cracker/hair/failhair/failhair1.jpg)
My first texture, on the mesh.  :o Quite a shock! I swear it looked better in Photoshop. D:

(http://i460.photobucket.com/albums/qq326/wanna_cracker/hair/failhair/failhair2.jpg)
Second go. I squished the texture in half and added shading.

(http://i460.photobucket.com/albums/qq326/wanna_cracker/hair/failhair/failhairdoesntfail.jpg)
Third time's the charm. :D Squished again and made a new alpha channel. I have always hated the EAxis alpha. I need to add the part back in.

The bummer is that I absent mindedly flattened my PSD, and while I have a back-up, it's from before I added the shading (see first pic). :( I need the texture on seperate layers to recolour it properly, so the final version will look different from what you see here, but hopefully it will look better. :(

Any comments, criticisms, or tips you may have are especially welcomed. I need all of the help I can get!  :-*

ETA: After, erm, hours of fidding, I've determined it would be much easier to just draw a new texture. x_o

You could duplicate the layer, make the top layer lighter or brighter with one of the tools, then put the eraser at about 50% and erase whatever you don't need. That gives highlights as well. What program do you use?

I just like the patterning better, and the addition of the lower area to balance out the flowery top portion.  Its flowery without being overwhelmingly so.

And the others are cute, just not my own cup of tea compared to the top one, which looks neo-victorian.

You could duplicate the layer, make the top layer lighter or brighter with one of the tools, then put the eraser at about 50% and erase whatever you don't need. That gives highlights as well.
I can't do that because the texture is on three layers: flat midtone, shadows and highlight. The highlight on top is composed of two layers of strokes, and then a soft brush over it (all with a low opacity) because I thought it wasn't shiny enough, but increasing the strokes' opacity too much made it look too streaky.

(http://i460.photobucket.com/albums/qq326/wanna_cracker/hair/failhair/nohalo.jpg)
This is what it looks like with the halo, and then without the strokes. There isn't much of a difference, so you can see how low the opacity is. :D I don't know. Am I being too hard on myself? Does it look good like this? Maybe Maxis-like, but not in a (gulp) bad way? (With halo, for comparison (http://i460.photobucket.com/albums/qq326/wanna_cracker/hair/failhair/newshading.jpg))

In the process of nabbing, now, Bruno, and thank you very much! Between all the stuff I've gotten in the past few days, like Falling Water by Mama Hec, recolours by Emma, bedding by Neriana, the Shaker Set by tomato/Paleoanth, and other stuff, my download folder hates me! I love it! :D

I thought Bruno was a girl?

At first I thought she was a boy, then people said she was a girl, so I think its Miss toothrot.

Yes, Ms. Toothrot is less confusing, but considering the name Herman, well... I like Mr. Toothrot, myself.  ;D

Remember that computer crash I had, and had to redo those curtains? Well i got the "Fashion" curtains from H&M redid. I am soon to finish the Window ones. I'm probably going to do a couple of heights, and maybe a couple of requested ones, but that's about it, even though I was going to do all of the maxis window heights.  :-\

Bruno, if you don't mind, can I convert your swimsuits to a maxis mesh? Unfortunately the mesh your swimsuits is on has the fat morph link to the preggers morph. :(

Fway: I'm looking forward to those curtains! They look awesome. And kudos to you for picking up something that you had to redo after a computer crash. If it happened to me, I would have given up, feeling like I'd probably wouldn't have done it as good as it was in the first place, but yours are fab

Eyes glazed over from all the purty pics on all the pages.... and all the damn WRITING :P

Would anyone be interested in some eye blends? Of HystericalParoxysm's Blasphemy eyes (credits to KSK and Pinstruck ;) ) and KnightSkyKyte's eye set (if she PMs me back with permission)?
Because I made them, and then they came out so well, I made them into super purty defaults. I did also edit them slightly, so they were the right colours for the defaults...

There's a mod to replace the ugly maxis eyeshadows with Bruno's. Also the uggo eyes with his. You already know about the lipsticks.

Seriously though, I love your stuff. It's the only makeup my sims wear. Even the pixie skins of strange coloration can always find makeup that looks nice on them. Although, I'm thinking about using your alphas to try to do a few blushes for them, since that is the only area that isn't well covered. Don't know for sure if/when I will get to it though.

It would be a shame to keep these sclera to myself, since I have ZERO intention of making any more eyeballs! (Only really made them for the V3 skinfiles) so, all creators of eyeballs, PLEASE, be *WELCOME* to USE THE ORIGINAL PHOTOSHOP FILE WITH THE SCLERA I've uploaded for you in a zip file here as a base for your work!

I'm guessing it would depend on which eye set you used, but off of her real eyes it says that. I would say post them, drop her a pm of the link to the eyes and if she objects just take them down. Giving full credit of course.

KSK drops in at MATY on occasion also, you might try dropping her a PM there as well. I LOVE her default skins, though I do wish S4 was a bit darker. 'course that's a problem with everyone's S4, really. Either I can find "Mexican" or "Really Dirty Chimney Sweep Who Needs A Deep Exfoliation," never "Haitian" or "African" colors... (that's my interpretation of the tone, though, YMMV, depending on what color/tone the brown people in your life are)

This hair has a really awful texture and alpha. Too pointy. I tried making it look cuter with a new texture and alpha, and I think it does look better now.
(I've not changed the mesh except some tiny fixes, because even though it's not too good, I want to keep it as close to the original thing as possible.)

Nouk, have you thought about tweaking that hair mesh just a tad so it sits a little lower on the head?  I love most of your hairs, but I'll admit, that's one I took out of my game.  It just doesn't look natural on the heads of any of the sims I tried it on.  I think it's mainly the bangs/fringe...they seem like they're growing out of a space floating an inch above the head instead of the natural hairline.

As for the improved version, I really like the new texture, but I kinda still prefer the chunkiness of the old alpha on the lower parts of the hair.  The new bang alpha is nifty, though.

Elpemmy, its a combination of practice and talent.  I sort of fiddle around with alot of different things, but I seem best at making over the top gardens.

Just experiment until you find something that you have something of a knack for, then practice until you're good.

And this is why I don't do much bodyshop modding :)

Thank you.  ;D Unfortunately not, no matter how I recolor using a transparent .png, there's still a mesh bugger up. Whether it be fiddling with the TXMT or MMAT, there's a strange line that goes through, but when it's solid, there is no line *shrugs* I don't know about that one, so I gave up and made open/and closed versions of the curtains. All I have to do now is change the descriptions and I'll be through with these.

Okay - here are the best pictures of my house I'm going to put up on Insim - I just need to do custom colours for the stairs, but I'm not sure if they need it or not.


It's an open plan house, but because of the way I did it, the licing spaces are all technically -inside- so as far as I can tell, they are seasons proof.

The architecture, it's divine! I love the faux archway. Although, Piggis sims has some nice recolors in many varieties of the loft window, I personally don't think that the red goes well with the wood doors at the moment.

It is so hard to match any two pieces of eaxis stuff.  I'm thinking about going through and trying to make all the wood that dark reddish brown - and the stairs.  And the bedroom stuff upstairs.

And thanks - I first did it in a much larger house that I posted on MTS2.  Unfortunately, I was never all that good at taking pictures, so I think alot of my older houses got missed by folks.  I suck at picture taking in the sims :)

*Squees like a 12 year old Clay Atkins fan* 

I *love* that house.  And I love the way you used the half walls around the porches, instead of a fence.  And, I loe the southwestern feel of the place.  It would look marvelous in a desert neighborhood too.

Dollface, that dress is stunning!!
While it's something I wouldn't play with in my game (funny, cos I'm a bit of a goth, and it's made of my two favourite colors, red and black), I thought I'd say that it is just wow!!

The only thing I'd criticise on it is the red part of the dress, try adding some creases going down the way, to give it a more flowey and swishy (are they even words?) look.

Apart from that, I love it!
Well done!! ;D

For the house, I have everything, but I could likely build it with fewer packs too.

And the archways are very simple to make.  Build a two story area.  Turn on the constrainfloorelevation cheat.  Using the foundation tool, put in areas that you want to be elevated, leaving enough unmessed with to for the arch.  Turn off the floorelevation cheat, remove the walls for your arch and there you go.

I'll have the house itself up once I do a few bits of recolouring so all the wood matches.

Seriously, that is a lovely dress.  The red/black gothy-ness is nice, it would be good for a vampire type setting, but I also see it in a western setting too.  I could see the female owner of the local salloon wearing such a dress.   :D

I like the way you got the velvet to look so real.   I swear, I reached up to my monitor to touch it, thinking it would feel soft.   yes, I feel rather silly now.  And I have fingerprints on my monitor.

Haha, I appologised because I hate criticising peoples work when I know ill never be able to produce something like it.
And because when I re-read my first post, I felt like I never gave a valid reason as to why i wouldn't have it in my game lol.
I'm a bitch yeah, but I hate being mean about something that someone else has put time and effort into producing(payshite excluded of course ;D).
There's supposed to be a reason in there somewhere, but I think I lost it with all the rambeling I did ::) :D

Crunk, I hear you. I am all for colloquial speech, but when people start to seperate their sentences in either "lyric" form, or "haiku" form. It just doesn't make me want to read it. I learnt that from trying to reread my posts pre-2006. I was realising, that I didn't want to read my disjointed paragraphs and trailed off words. So I rolled up my sleeves and began to make an effort to write in a proper sentence structure. And since we are fighting this Paysite War, we want everyone's post to be read and kept for posperity! Arr!

Deelink, Crunk, I've taken note of what you have both said and I shall try my best to not seperate my posts without it being nesciary(sp lol).
I always break up what I'm saying in relation to the person who I'm replying too, so that if they say something, then something else, I break it up so they know what part I'm saying what too. If that makes sense?  ???


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: deelink on 2008 September 30, 23:36:23
Yeah it does. Alia does it too, it's not that bad, but you have to make sure your sentences properly end (like hers, for easy reading), and if you are going to be addressing people, you can break it up, by quoting them (Like Cala does) or by using their username before addressing them. I am not "lecturing" you on how to write, just keep in mind that you are being read by a lot of people, and if you don't structure your posts (and I am not talking to only you, this is like a freakin' trend here in PMBD) the regulars and most pillaging pirates who are pressed for time, are just not going to read it. And that's bullocks, when you could've just made an effort to get your point across by adhering to a few grammatical rules.

If you write like
I mean SHE IS SO but the thing is, it's like, what does she think.
I am so annoyed. Went over there and the link was
so bad the conversation.

I mean, I can understand what I am trying to say. But can you?

Ok Deelink, I see your point. I dont think you were getting on at me. At the end of the day, if you hadn't have said anything, then I wouldn't have relised I was doing anything wrong. The fact that I am using my shit key is down to keirra telling me I had lost mine, and sent me a new one. So I guess what I am trying to say is, that if no one says anything, then nothing can get done about it.

Might I suggest the windows that came with OFB, the ones with the red, blue, green and white recolor options. And I'm guessing that by "stair area" you mean the stages? If so, that feature also came with OFB. I believe that the pack also came with matching halfwalls too, if I'm not mistaken?

Well, if not, can fake it with foundations and the floorelevation cheat.  I'll have to fiddle with it.  I'll look at it once i get this version up.

And that's what I was going to use originally, but didn't want to recolour windows [even if I ended up doing so anyway]

Well, were there not also matching stairs also? I know that the color options aren't great, but if youre going for CC free, or minimal CC, that's the set I would use. I'm not telling you how to do it, I'm just giving you some suggestions :D.

Well so far the house has some recolours by me, oppenwooden stairs by me [ but to use them does require scriptorium and Numenor's deck stairs....and Cala's nifty partitions.

Oh, and some curtains I made.  I tried to keep the CC down to what I knew was shareable, or at least -free-

I got a "Changes Required" on the meshes, so I seized the opportunity to shrink one more plant and add it to the mix:

(http://i281.photobucket.com/albums/kk221/hekkahekkawhat/ScreenShot152-1.jpg)

The other rubber tree plant! It also uses the repository technique like the other meshes. Hopefully these won't be rejected.


Dollface, I love the dress. The textures are beautifully done. Soggy, I love the little edits, your house is even more beautiful.

Did they say why they were refused?  And yay, I love that plant the second best [fronds is first place].  And I try to balance using CC with keeping it minimal - I like using some because it exposes people to maybe something they hadn't seen before and shares some of my favorite things, but keeps it down where people don't have a ton of stuff.  Thing is, I've noticed a problem with including the stuff in the actual house file too.  I've had to clean so many duplicate files from my folders from when I recently reinstalled all my old uploaded houses *shudder*

I got a changes required because I forgot the rubber tree plant, as I asked one of the mods there if they would be kind enough to give me a changes required. XD I get very anxious and meticulous when it comes to my downloads. Downloads are currently down now, so hopefully, they'll be accepted by tomorrow.


But anywho, I got bored, and made stage versions as well as one tiled versions of the Gearhead windows from apartment life... The stage going right through the window bugged me so much XD. What bugged me even more was the fact that the window only came in two tiled versions. So I made a single tile version as well as a single tile stage version.... They look very nice with my curtains, as well as match up nicely.

Forgot to add: The windows use the repository technique.
Forgot to add again: I may make a half windowed version of this, but I'd have to see how the mesh works taken apart, but other than that, I may stop. I've done too many meshes this week! XD

Very cool, and it bugged me as well, which is why I'd removed that window from the stairwell on the house.

I love seeing extra matching architectural bits, especially using repository, since then making sure recolours match is -much easier.

Hey, I hug my kids all day too. I love it, much to the embarrassment of the 12  :D
Hub and I also hug lots. We have been known to spend entire sundays snuggled up on the couch.
Only others who are allowed to hug me, are my parents, my nanna, my grandad when he was alive, my sister and her family at a push, and my three best friends (two female, one male).
I have no problems with little uns hugging me (like my friends kids/nephews) but my 12's friends insist on hugging me because I feed them homemade cakes and cookies. Eeeep.

I had a VERY small wedding. Ten people, including the six of us, because with my first wedding I was traumatised by all of the virtual strangers (read extended family, and ex hubs friends) wanting to give me a hug.
I felt like screaming piss off, I haven't seen you for years. You're only here to keep my parents happy. Don't fucking TOUCH me.....but of course all I could do was smile. And grin. And put up with it. *shudders*.

I NEVER go out drinking. I can't stand being groped by drunken guys (or gals. Srsly. Girls hit on me all of the time) . I can't stand having to barge my way through crowds of people.

I swear, I'm going to turn into a crazy cat lady when my kids are all grown. Except, with dogs.

Thank you all so much for your compliments, I checked back last page and missed the comments after I had posted. I am on some sort of meshing streak here. These, like my curtains will be available soon, luckily the upload area of MTS2 is down, so I can make diagonals and everything. (I hope the diagonals come out). *crosses fingers*

Since the windows use the repository technique, I have found that piggis-sims has a few recolors, under Downloads > Maxis Recolors > Build Mode > Windows. I think that she has a white recolor already.

I love that site!

I love piggis too! I tend not to download her things because my download organizer always categorizes her stuff as being orphans, and I usually just select all my orphans and delete. So her stuff tends to not live long in my game.  :'(

Piggi's stuff is considered orphans because of the way Delphy's Download Scanner works--it classified all of my apartment life recolors as orphans because it wasn't updated for apartment life. So you'll have to be careful with any recolors of maxis stuff for EPs and SPs that it wasn't updated for.

When I scan for orphans I dont delete them.  I move them to a folder on my desktop so if I find something important missing I can scan it with the clean installer and put back what I need.  If you know that the files will be targeted as orphans when they are not then I would move my Piggi folder out before I scan.

Im only a newbie at clothing meshing and I am not sure if I am correct about this but I dont think the uvmap is causing the clipping, I would probably go back in to the 3D editor and have a look at the mesh and check from the sides to see if there are any parts of the mesh sticking out where its not meant to be which could be causing the clipping.  :)

 :-* Thanks rosa - they don't clip while she's still, only when she moves.   :) That makes me think that I should change the UV map, the bone assignments, snap those vertexes together under her pants or the size of the bottom.

You should give the vertices on top (sweater) the same assignment as the nearest vertices under them (pants). That should fix most of it. It doesn't always fix it though.

Yes.  But unlike other paysites, she's totally okay with the booty.  She thinks that sharing is a good way to go - she's a member here and Simscave.

Or does she use the booty to host the files so she saves on bandwidth? 

No, the only items there are her pay items.  She believes that people should be able to get them if they want them.

I don't know if she's spoken to Nouk or Jessica - I think she tried to go optional donation and all free, and didn't find the support.  But here's an example of a donation item: http://www.rensim.com/details.php?file=38 (http://www.rensim.com/details.php?file=38) She even makes a point on the page that it's fileshare friendly and available elsewhere for free.  I believe all their donation items are skintones (big files in other words).

Interesting. In the booty it's one rar but I'm guessing it has tons of files in it. Well would we consider her a paysite or no? I wouldn't at this point, but I didn't even know until today she had donation files either.

So, in other words, she is -actually- getting money for bandwidth, not for the stuff.  I was a little puzzled when I went there.  I also didn't see her stuff in the booty, but I found that its best for me to stick to one skinner's skins, to make stuff look consistant, and currently, I'm using Enayla's skins.  This is also why I'm thinking of sticking with a separate AGS game to keep things from getting untidy, for the pirate neighborhood.

I think it's all the freshie files.  As to whether a paysite, I'd say yes so it should be in the booty, but I can't see that a Rensim killmark is a good thing when she is so willing to share. :)

So, in other words, she is -actually- getting money for bandwidth, not for the stuff.

Seems to be so, but I can't say for sure 100%.

I believe she said she already paid for a few years of her hosting and was not interrested. She could just release the payfiles and be done with it. Also, paysite is paysite.

paysite is paysite, but there are degrees of paysite, as far as my opnions of the owners go - It is alot easier to believe the paysite is in fact just paying for bandwidth if they have no problems with you sharing the files.

On the other hand, is it believable that TSR is just charging for bandwidth?  Not at all.  Its obvious they are greedy fucks who just want the monies, they don't even try and have good photos for most of their stuff, from what I've seen.  Which really makes you wonder.

That sucks. I know a paysite is a paysite, but it's just confusing since she even states on the page for the donation skins and where to get the files for free. It's weird.

I know Ren for years. Her point is simple: if you want to download the skins from her site (meaning, eating her bandwith) you have to donate. If you dont want to donate but wants the skins, then you can go to one of places she points (N99 mostly) and ask there and someone will send you by email. She uses the money for bandwith, she is file-sharing.

... she is a control freak about her creations, but this is a completely different matter.

Nope, she is not. This is Nixys site (http://www.elegantdecay.com/).

Post by: Souvenirs on 2008 October 09, 18:03:48
I get the idea, but I still consider her site a paysite.  Maybe not one of the worst, but a paysite.  Expecting people to go to N99 and start requesting people send them files doesn't sit right with me.  I've personally never even been to N99, and it'd make me feel like a leech if I signed up just to whine to people I don't know to give me pay files.  If it's that much of a hassle to attain her files (and getting them through the booty doesn't count), and she's charging for them, then her site's a paysite.  Plenty of other sites have been able to go free and still pay for hosting; I'm sure Ren could do it as well.  I don't see why the "I need money for hosting" excuse is any better because she gives people permission to share her files.  It's still alienating a lot of people who don't know who to ask for her files, don't think she's in the booty (because they don't think of her site as inactive), and will end up paying because they don't know any better. 

Don't get me wrong, I actually like Ren's content, and I've never pegged her as all that greedy or malicious.  I just wish she would step away from the paysite label, because then I could respect her a lot more.

I didn't mean for this to get this long (sorry :-[), but I have one last point: I know the Daum/Naver people were considerably more rude than Ren has ever been, but wasn't their content bootified because they made it such a hassle for people to get to it?  I think Ren's content should be in the "active" part of the booty with all the other active paysites--if she's happy to have people share her files, the she should be happy to have them easily accessible.  People won't think to look in the inactive sites section when her site's not really inactive.

Again, I don't see Rensim as being up there with the likes of TSR and Peggy, but...meh. :-\

Her site is on the "liberated" list, and according Hecubus isn't a paysite anymore.

Post by: Anouk on 2008 October 09, 20:05:02
Someone owning a paysite does not automatically mean I will just dislike that someone simply for that. I'd just not care about anyone sharing their stuff, that is it. You'd have to be a bastard to apply for disliking. lol


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: Souvenirs on 2008 October 09, 20:16:31
Well, if Hecubus has officially declared Rensim a non-paysite, then I guess I can't argue. :-\  I just know that it took me ages to figure out how to get ahold of those files--I didn't realize that they were in the booty, and I wasn't (and am not) immersed in the community enough to start requesting stuff from random people at forums.  If I weren't so against paying for pixels in the first place, I may have paid for them.  That bugs me.

I certainly wasn't saying that I OMGHAET Ren or any other paysite owner, for that matter.  I don't hate many people (mostly because I'm too lazy to :D), but if I'm going to hate paysite people, it'll be ones like Thomass and Peggy. ;)

Ditto.

I wouldn't consider her a paysite since she's not only expressed that she's fine with things being in the booty, but she gives instructions for free downloading on her site. It's just a weird model.

Well, I was able to find the freckles, thanks!

And the model for Rensims is really strange. I had a hard time wrapping my mind around the whole 'pay but share' thing. It might be a little less confusing if she actually just put it up as 'donate to help with server costs' instead of 'donate to get files, but you can share them if you like'.

But it's her site, and if the files are freely distrubetable and available w/her permission...


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: SoggyFox on 2008 October 09, 22:26:12
I know why she might not want to say donate to help with server costs - because that is the same lame excuse all the paysites use - except she means it.

At least with her model you can see it, and either pay to get it from her, or if you can't afford to, you can get it elsewhere.

At least, that's my line of logic on it.

http://www.simscave.com/ferris/index.php?topic=1562.0

Or:

First you need to download yourself a copy of Simpe from http://sims.ambertation.de/
It is essential to back up before doing this - I've had sims disappear after removing their clone from the Saved Sims folder.

Open up simpe and wait for it to load.
Follow the directions as show in the pictures:

(http://i204.photobucket.com/albums/bb297/miscellaneous_photo/TUT01.jpg)

(http://i204.photobucket.com/albums/bb297/miscellaneous_photo/TUT02.jpg)

(http://i204.photobucket.com/albums/bb297/miscellaneous_photo/TUT05.jpg)

If something is missing, or if this wasn't helpful, please let me know so I can adjust things :)

Then once it is in your SavedSims folder it should appear in your body shop bin. Then you can edit them. :0 Sorry for the long post.

This is an apartment lot I'm working on. It's far from finished as I got sick of furnishing cabins for the moment and am working on landscaping instead.
There's 8 little cabins all together and a community area cabin...oh, a pond too. Anyone see any reason this won't work? (I've already tried to change the lot zoning and no errors have come up so far!)

(http://i33.tinypic.com/a1ths9.jpg)

Ohohoh..wait, now that I think about it, the edging on the paths wasn't there the last time I checked to see if the lot zoning would change. I know the little room divider things won't work..I can't remember at the moment if garden/path edging will work or not.

ETA: The pic is really small, I know- I didn't change the settings. Next time I take one, I'll make sure it's bigger. (Ha, who am I kidding! The pic is small this time because I didn't want anyone injured by looking at the fugliness that's my 15th!! attempt at making an apartment lot.)

The earlier pic is the SC4 region. And yes, it was made by placing letters in different fonts and greyscale levels on a properly sized .png file. I like doing random things in Photoshop and seeing how they'll turn out on an actual terrain. The great thing is that the north half of the region has areas that easily give near-level beach lots. Download link (http://www.4shared.com/file/66546880/b2a90dd7/Alphabet.html), in case you have SC4 and want to cut your own roads.


I only have a couple "cities" that I've smoothed and paved. One has way too much liveable area for my taste. The other one is this:

The File names should be obvious, so if you don't have the particular game, you can take it out.


If you post in a pictures thread and then somebody asks in a WCIF thread, just link them here for now, otherwise they'll be on MTS2 hopefully soon. Orr they can just wait and suffer. XP


Up for grabs!

Those rules seem really fun but I don't know if I could run a whole neighborhood of 1,000 people! You would literally have to have a huge neighborhood! Or atleast to me, but what boggles my mind is how they goals for 2,000+ neighborhoods! How is that possible!?
The key is maximizing your sim multiplier early on by unlocking the districts. That's an instant SM of 15, plus your starter 1. Additional points are gotten by building community lots, at 1 pt per 5 lots (plus 1 for your first lot). So get 5 player-owned community lots for the Business District, get one sim to donate a mil for a University lot (easiest way if their family is the one running all those businesses and taking the money perks). Easy 13 SM. Then chug out community lots (I'd endow them, plus add 1 lot/4 houses) to up the multiplier until you reach a virtual 25k and get a downtown. At that point, you get the 5 sim multiplier addition that automatically takes you over the 50k goal.

The major loophole? You can "add" another Business district with each 5 community lots, giving you 6 more points (1 for 5 lots, 5 for another district). So in truth, 5 community lots are always worth 6 points, not 1.

Is there some secret code?
Nope, just random typing. They all contain parts of letters. Most don't have entire letters.

Plants are great, thank you! I especially love the bonsai flowers one.

The windows look incredibly awesome. It actually calls major attention to the ceilings...I don't have Apartment Life though, my poor computer wouldn't be able to handle it. My game would chug so bad, I've got enough stuff in it now. Add to that, I'm getting all sorts of weird graphical glitches now that I can't figure out.  :'(

I posted a shot of this cabin in Ask A Pirate 'cuz I had questions. Based on suggestions, I redid it. This is almost done. I'm still looking for the perfect rugs- everything I have looks too modern. Anyone see anything that won't work? I put a family in it just to test it and didn't have any problems- yet.

Sorry to steal your thunder, MrBoddy. To make up for it, I loveeeeee the plants and would snag the windows ina heartbeat!

I love those windows and would totally grab them if I had AL, and the cabins, but sadly I am playing nothing above Seasons just yet. I don't actually know if the downstairs comp could handle anything about Seasons. Plus, I'm not giving another penny to the company. But I want! Ok, moment of weakness has passed for now, I'm good.

The ragrugs in the actual game works well for rustic too - if no one knows what ragrugs are, they are the oval ones that look almost like a flat basket.  They are made from rags.

I love those rugs.  You're right, they're perfect for rustic.  Farm styles too.  It's one of the few things that are original game that I feel are perfect, just the way they are.

Mustluvcatz?  That cabin is cute. You've got a simple layout that should allow for easy movement of the sims, which is the most important to me.  The only thing I question is having a curtain on the window which is right behind the stove.  Of course, in a game it doesn't matter much, but if you're going for realism, I don't think anyone would have a curtain so close to a stove.  It's not just asking for a fire, it's on its knees begging for one.  I'd either get rid of the curtain or move the stove to a safer location.

HugeLunatic- Thankies for the link! I was searching and don't know how I missed those, especially since I have a lot of nengi's other creations already.

SoggyFox? I use those rugs alot...BUT they're a bit too small to use, in my opinion. (I've got a lot of that kind of rug in my real house! I love the way they look.)

BlackDwarf? I had to lol at your statement about the stove. When I redid the inside, I moved the stove to where it is now and didn't even think about the curtain. When I build a house, I do try to watch out for that kind of stuff. (I also forgot to put in a smoke detector!) Soooo...back to the old drawing board I go. One moved stove and some rugs coming up!

Ohhh..Paden? You could have the cabins without AL, couldn't you? With hacks? Isn't there some kind of door hack? (Not trying to be a smart-alek here...I know I've read about one.)

Welcome for the rug link.  I too love the braided in game one, and wish I could find a large on that used the same textures.  Sadly the mapping wouldn't support it as it would look stretched.

Thank you everyone! I hope you all are enjoying the new plants.
Edit: Missbonbon, I'll be uploading them soon, I have to work out a few kinks.  ;)


So last night, I was building an apartment complex... I was going to make more than 3 apartments, but I knew it would cause MAJOR lag on some computers. I playtested it on my computer and it appears to be working alright, although I have 2 gigs of ram, so that would be a counteractive statement. It has 5 floors, has elevators for faster access, mezzanines overlooking the lobby, vending machines, pool table in the common area, poker table,  etc. I forgot to mention that the Mailbox and playground are in the back of the building.

The bathroom is the only room with a door inside of the apartment, everything else is open.

The apartments are partially furnished, and the common areas are fully furnished...

Post by: fway on 2008 October 14, 22:10:49
Well, since lots at MTS2 appear to be approved faster than meshes, I believe I've found a way to share those meshes as quick as possible, I've found that the one tile open window  jabs into a perpeendicular wall, so a little tweaking will go a long way, because I want to perfect these meshes, so I won't have to fix anything in the long run, although I can't quite remember if the diagonals automatically get included into the lot, so I may just end up uploading the meshes. *shrugs* But I'll make sure I'll share them here if the windows are in the queue for more than a week... I still can't believe my plants haven't been approved. I checked the "ready to be approved by a moderator" option as soon as I finished tweaking what I needed to tweak. If this goes into three weeks, I'm going to post in the "creator issues" section, because even though the server went down TWO weeks ago, the day before that, I uploaded my plants. It's getting rediculous...  ::)

I love your apartment fway! The only thing I suggest is a tad touch more color.

Okay so I know bruno is going to convert those swimsuits eventually, but I couldn't wait, and I was tired a seeing my fat simmies be preggers. So I converted some of the suits myself. I have only done 8 of them, which were the ones I liked. If anyone wants another one send me the files of the ones you want, because ya know I deleted the ones I didn't like.  :)

I forgot to number them in any way, so I don't even know what is what, but here are the pictures of what they look like on the normal maxis mesh. I only fiddled with adults, so if you guys want teens let me know and I shall try those conversions! And I'm direct linking the pictures because they can be huge!

Thank you everyone! I'm glad you're liking my plants pinky. :) Ah yes, I was very meticulous of the duct work, Soggy, and am still a little frustrated that the ductwork disappears when you don't rent a furnished apartment.

Missbonbon, what do you mean by "more color?" I'd like to know. I'm actually going for a minimalist approach here though, but I am open to suggestions.

Of if your going for minimalist then ignore my comment. I just thought you ran out of ideas. But by more color I just meant, well more color. Like blues and pinks and stuff, colored wallpaper, stuff like that. But if your going for minimalist then don't worry about it.  :-*

Well, the cabin apartment lot is almost done. Same cabin I've posted before is shown- I changed things yet again! I think I'm happy with the way it is now...if I could just find a 2x2 coffee table. (And I think I might add 2 more chairs, even though these are meant for 1 or 2 sims.) I'm usually not one to match things, but I got to thinking and decided to make each cabin a different color. So, there's blue, green (my favorite so far), pink, yellow, red (not a deep red) and black/white...which I'm most likely changing because it's too modern looking- wanted orange, but my favorite sofa doesn't come in orange. The community area has a pool table, card table, easel and bathrooms so far- computers will be added along with whatever else fits. There's grills and outdoor dining areas. And the pond. I assume it will all work as it should??

For larger rugs, I've taken to playing with the carpet flooring and the ctrl-f keys.  Can get some nice designs or lack there of, and it looks nice with wood flooring.

Ok so I don't usually play show and tell but seeing as we're talking about apartments and all. Some of you may have noticed in Ask a Pirate I was having issues with my cheat file not allowing me to build up, anyway it's fixed (kinda) and I got back to work on my monster NYC co-op apt building. It's not completely finished and I may never actually use it but I'm having fun making it. It's 6 stories, 9 apts (I'll probably leave the top 2 floors empty with no access, just for the look) and a gym.

I've got way too much to try and upload all of it there.  And my site is coded, its just my hosting likes to munch stuff and go down.

Thanks to everyone and sorry for the dl issues.  If you have any issues with 404, feel free to pm me and I can send files via email too.

Inspired? by the office set in the comparison thread, I decided to do my own, combined with another project i've been working on.  I wanted to do a set of new meshes/recolours/walls and floors for the wintertime.

HugeLunatic: I dont go to other sites other than here and MTS2, but i really wanted to get them bedding, and they aint up on MTS2 yet. So i went to your site, and boy am I  glad I did. You have so many awesome things, including wall shelves, like the ones that came with AL. My AL doesnt like me, and i loved the shelves, so having these really cheered me up about it lol.

OT.
Would anyone be willing to extract the female hair that came with AL and make it available for all ages and without AL installed?
I really want them bushy ponytails. If someone could, I would love you long time!! :-*

I need a tester.  A long time ago, Darqstar and I made a kitchen set.  You can see it here:

http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=230031

I decided to try and update the fridge for AL.  I downloaded the files from Lord Darcy over at MATY and replaced the TTAB and TTA.  Then I realized I don't have AL installed.  Which probably makes my fridge unusable in my own game, and I certainly cannot test it.  I can always download it again, I guess.  Anyway, if anyone has AL and is willing to test this fridge, I would appreciate it:

Paleo I stuck your fridge in my game to give it a test but it's not showing up in my appliance catalog. Is it called Moderne Kitchen? I can see from the picture that it looks a bit like the Coldinator but without the handles, but damned if I can find it. Are you sure it's cataloged correctly? It's a stupid question I know just figured I'd check.

Oh ya and I would have called it Kitchen Moderne. I like the name but if your going to use French spelling you should the grammar too. It might just be me and the way I'm used to hearing things but it flows better with the hard K at the beginning. Not that you asked for or wanted my opinion, I just thought I would share. Tell me to stuff it if you want. Nevermind I just realized that we're probably not even pronouncing moderne the same way. Carry on.

I've just got a new pc and can finally play my beloved Sims again. *hands out rum to everyone*  ;D
I decided to try and build a home for a single that costs less than 20.000. At the moment I only have the base game so I've settled using the things from that + 2 pieces of CC.
The result is a 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom house with a combined kitchen/livingroom which has a tiny "garden" (I've chosen to overlook the fact you're not supposed to have soil in a kitchen).
With furniture the house ends up costing 19,779 - there is equipment for all skills except body. Without furniture it costs somewhere around 12,500.
If any of you guys have some ideas about how I can make it better then I'd love to hear them :)

The pieces of CC used are "Garden Flowers W/O ground" by Targa (MTS2) and "Zita's Flowering Climbing Vine" by Aussietopenders.
As you clearly can see I am very new at building houses.   :P

HugeLunatic: I have everything, but only up to IKEA installed, I don't have AL installed, cos for some reason, whenever I build a roof larger than 12x12 tiles, my whole game freezes, odd.
You may have seen them around the place, but I haven't, so I am in awe with only you, and cos I've only seen yours, me now love you long time  ;).
I'd love some small decorative items though, like the oh so cute ones that came with AL, they are great for shelves, plus I put the 14" tv on them too, the one Numenor made.

And now I'm babbling sorry.

If any of you guys have some ideas about how I can make it better then I'd love to hear them :)

You can try taking away the ground tiles outside and instead use a terrain paint. That might lower the cost some and allow for body building equipment. Also, you can try taking out the chess set and chairs and put in just the telescope for logic; try that and see how the cost adds up. Um..the only other thing...you can try for the ultra cheap couch or just two dining chairs. Considering that the house only has a double bed, you're only going to have up to two Sims to start with.

But, that's if you're looking to get all the skill building objects in there and are looking to lower cost. Otherwise, the house looks spiffy.  :)

I did say "working on," right? Though I'm really happy everyone wants them. More incentive to work faster. The single is done except I tweaked the mesh a bit, just adjusting the uv so designs will be easier to apply. I'm using the repository technique, so it's important to get the master just right. All the doors and windows will draw their frame textures from the one window. znow though, I'm having trouble with my screen capture key. Either it's not working or GIMP has an issue. *pout* Gimp keeps telling me the clipboard is empty. Gotta go find out what's up with that.

Well, the master window, plus the two tile and three tile versions look done. There's a funny shadow on the three tile one in this shot. I'm not sure why it showed up that way when the wall shadow mesh is a duplicate of the mesh for the master object but I think I have that fixed. I haven't checked again in the game since I took this screenshot. Now just ... 189 (more or less) files to go!

Question for you guys. When downloading build sets, such as a set of windows, would you rather have the set broken down into subsets which each have their own master object or have all the objects in the set which can have the same texture file share so that there are less objects to recolor to do the whole set? The reason I ask is because I've planned this set to have 4 subsets: a plain set, a set with a triskele knot tracery pattern, a set with a knotwork panel tracery, and a set with a knot and leaf tracery. The tracery sets with have those as a separately recolorable subset. All the sets will include a number of windows, plus doors. The plain set will also include a one and two tile arch. I can set EVERYTHING so that they pull the frame textures from the one tile long window (the master window) or I can set each of the sets to have their own master window. What do you think?

I don't have any pics, as I'm working this out in my head (lot less aggravating for me than building and demolishing just to start over again) but can anyone tell me if these ideas will work?
1) 4 houses, 2 set farther back- a usable garage and fenced in yard for each. (No foundations anywhere!)
2) To simulate a road- invisible driveways and extensions for the 2 houses that are farther back- with road tiles up until the last extension. That one would be a different tile to make a distinction between "road" and "driveway"...also it would match the house.
3) The way I've got this figured out so far,a) there will be a space of 4 tiles or so between those 2 roads/driveways. I like the idea of making that space a median with trees and plants in it. Will that work? b) If that will work, can I use any of the edging around the median?
4) Any area that's outside of the houses, garages and yards would be community area, right? So, that would mean that "Little Sally" could go across the "street" and visit "Little Tammy"? Or would the driveways be in the way and uncrossable?

I think that's it. I already know from playing around with apartments that I can use a garage- funny thing about that is Maxis garage doors prevent the lot zoning change...probably because they can be walked out of. If you use Dolphin's Anti-pedestrian garage door, the lot zone change works.

Oops. One more thing. Does anyone know where there are some good leafy terrain paints that won't make the game lag? The cabin lot is waiting for one. The one I used makes it lag- badly.

The only real problem with doing a neighborhood lot like that is that you'd really need to do a full 5x6 lot and be very precise with your architecture - keep thinking about trying to manage that.

And I think if you use the -new- garage doors, they do work.

dragonarts, the windows look brilliant! I much prefer single sets. It's easier to download, organise and if the files are clearly labelled you can always toss the items you don't want.

I figured it'd be okay for me to post pics of a sim I made and who I'm considering uploading, but I'm not sure if he would have any appeal to anyone outside of GoS, so opinions please? Apologies for the large pics, PhotoBucket is uncooperative.

I like his nose, and the freckles. He isn't too emo, and he has a decent face. The only thing I'd do is maybe make his jaw a little wider, but feel free to ignore that :)

Thanks crunk! His jaw isn't as narrow as the pictures make it look, I'll try and see if I can get a straight-on picture next time I load my game. And his being emo is probably due to the hair and falling on his arse after trying out the rollercoaster. Or maybe I've just been at GoS for too long to notice anymore.

Thanks, SoggyFox.
I already figured that I'd have to use the biggest lot. The garage doors? Never thought of using the new ones- I don't really like the way they look, but it does make sense seeing that they came with AL. (Silly me!) Since the one I've used works, I think I'll stick with that one. Well, off to try out this idea!

Beth! The rugs are so pretty. I'm a modern rug download addict (they go in my wannabe frank loyd wright cheap fuggo knockoff lots).

Also, this is my first cc post. I usually just tweak already made skins and makeup for my own use. But I saw a cute necklace online and thought I'd make one for my sims. I don't habe permissionz to use the mesh (club crimson tsr nouveau necklace). Its not fit for the public anyway. But feel free to mock if you must.

There's also a the more silvery/pewter looking version I found from a link from cuteoverload.com. I forget the actual name of the site, though.

I spend a lot of time organizing my files. Moreso than playing the game. i spend a lot of time organizing irl, too. I'm anal like that. Also, my husband loves anything lovecraftian. He references cthulu all the time, so when other people do, I get the warm fuzzies inside.

Thanks to everyone for the kind comments about the necklace. I'll email  Aikea and Gelydh and ask if I can post it somewheres. (is box any good?)

Ok, So I'm doing some recolors of the lovely lovely Carnaby Sims Bob.  I really rather enjoy that hair. (and the clothes... really, the whole site at large.)  I figure, if you like a hair, having different natural color options for it just makes it even better.  So far I've worked this up:
(http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g287/chemistrycourtney/Sims%202%20Projects/CarnabySimsBobRecolors.jpg)
I feel like I need a different type of shade of brown and a different type of shade of red as well.  (Possibly a different type of shade of blonde, but all my blondes look the same when I'm done even when I go for "different shade.") 

So... lighter brown?  strawberry blonde?  A good idea/necessary or totally superfluous and a waste of time?  Any ideas of another shade of blonde as well?

Courtney, I love the colours you've done and probably not use any other versions of colours. I like the whole maxis-match thing you see and prefer just 1 colour version in each bin. But that's just my opinion :D Others might love different variations.

Post by: crunk on 2008 October 25, 16:04:09
Hey Courtney colors wise I love multiple shades of brown. I'd also look at either brightening up the red or adding some highlights. As for the blond, I'd maybe go for some honey tones, or platinum - both of which I personally love.  When it comes to non-maxis match hair I like to have lots of different color options for each style so that it can be as realistic as possible.

Also, very cute moddle!

I can understand that.  I can usually do two versions of a style after that I kind of just "gloss over" that choice.  lol.  Ok.  So what I'd do then is do the 4 "base colors" packed together and then maybe have the other options available to download if you want them.  (all binned of course.)

I can probably go platinum with blonde.  The original is kind of a honey blonde.  Those always end up looking... pinky... when I do them.  So I'll do two different ones.  The one there, and then a variation choice for each.  Packed separately so you don't have to have them all if you only wanted the one.

Also, very cute moddle!

I've found that they do, though I'm sure there are a couple exceptions out there.  I rarely use the rug meshes that came with the game because of that.

Hmm - might try my hand at doing some persian rugs then.  I'd love to use rugs more often, but I'd like the option of having them be a little less grid-ish in placement.  And I'll need more rugs in general.

Ry!!! The rugs, the rugs! *SQUEE!!!* I have to glomp 'em!

As for the apartment windows, I still have to fix an issue with the windows bleeding through the walls, same goes for the new door, if they are put on the corner the arch just bleeds through. :\ I've been MIA because I've been having some computer issues, where my computer just loves to randomly crash, luckily that may be fixed, and I had all my files from the restore, thank goodness. Speaking of doors, how about a one tile gearhead door?

Need to work on the wall masks though. These will be uploaded soon, but I've been going ADD with my projects. XD

Also, I shall be working on my curtain/door diagonals, I have class at 6 PM EST tomorrow, and hope to get everything done before then.

Those look FUN!! I remember having those as a kid. Mine were bright pink.

OK, I actually have made something.  Yeah, no kidding.  I made it for myself, but if anyone wants it when I have finished testing, cleaning up and whatnot, I will be happy to upload somewhere.  Maybe TSR will take it.  I have to do some beveling on the front of the arms (too flat) and check on some other things.  Perhaps a day left on it.  I am thinking of doing an armchair to match, which makes sense.  After that, I am planning on doing a bodyshop series I had planned long, long ago. Or perhaps finally finish the anatomical series of objects I have somewhere on this computer (new animations and skill building!). 

It is a simple sofa, just to get me back into the groove:

Inspiration:

The arm pillows are a separate subset, so you can recolor them separately. 

(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3023/2996328125_d1a19f26fc_o.jpg)


Simple enough, eh?  However, I decided to get all fancy with the mapping. So that the back pillows are also recolorable separately without making them a subset. Like this mapped image indicates. And yes, I will include the map or send it to whomever wants it.

(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3044/2996327073_e5ebf68f90_o.jpg)

This is all in case you really wanted to, you could have separate recolored armpillows and back pillows.  So, let's say you are Atwa, you could make something like this:

(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3018/2996328897_624b082fa1_o.jpg)

Notes: I really hate how everything is so freaking unnaturally symmetrical in the game objects.  So, the back pillows are not perfectly aligned and the armpillows are not at the exact same degree of rotation.  ON PURPOSE.

Agreed.  I like it - I see your point about mismatching sizes - I'm too mathematical to mismatch on purpose.  But I think tilting that pillow and all those other things make it look much more like a real couch.  :D I also *love* that suedeish sort of texture you've used in the first picture. Makes me want to stroke it. :P

I like the cushions on the original picture, nice and big. It gives the couch a "winged" look. Is this difficult to recreate for the Sims?

Thanks guys.  I do need to do some more work on it.  I am not that happy with the front of the seat cushions.  I might have to rebuild those.  This was mostly an exercise for myself.  I am woefully out of practice.

Cala-that suedeish texture is probably going to be the default texture once I clean that up too.  I like it as well. 

Recreating for the sims is interesting.  The first loveseat I made was more like the inspiration picture, but once everything was sized to match the cloned mesh, the proportions became different.  The seat cushions, for example, became taller.  I could make them shorter, but then the bottom would have to be resized to compensate.  I decided that would look weird. 

I have no idea where I will upload this-maybe just here for now. If I decide to do more stuff, I will look for a permanent home.  I have a special love for MTS2, but the weird adverts are kind of turning me off.  I hate getting the big black ad, even with adblocker. 
I'd definitely say to NOT upload that couch to TSR. It's got a very nice shape to it!

Yay Recolors!




Love the pics you took and the recolors!  Makes me sad that my computer won't handle some of the newer EP's.  I was just joking about TSR-no way in hell I would upload dog poop there.  They never did get my gargoyle skin that I have up at MTS2 and that makes me happier than you could know.  Procrastination FTW.

Everything here is so damn gorgeous. No fair :(
Loveloveloooove the sofa Tomato :D

I'm working on a set of vases, and a set of tables (obscure, I know :P) the tables are VERY wip at the moment, but I thought I'd show off two vases:

(http://i35.tinypic.com/vy0aqw.jpg)

(http://i36.tinypic.com/2n173q.jpg)

It's supposed to be a set of 3, circular, square, and triangular, but the triangular one ain't going so well. So, if it fails too badly, I'll just upload these two instead of persevering.

Whatcha think?

Also: I was just playing around recently, and I made a crap, with a flag sticking out of it, which could be textured into the TSR logo ;) Would that be a good idea? Or no?

Elpemmy, I love the vases. Are they going to stay solid? Or become glass?

And fway Mr. Boddy, the glasses are awesome! I could see me using those for my college party simmies. Everyone's creations are so lovely!

No, they're not gonna be glass, because I fail.
But anyone can recolour them once they're up, so I'm hoping we'll see some glass versions.

I am pretty sure I can teach you how to do glass.  It isn't that hard, it is just a bit tricky with the Material Definition editing. 

1. Get a texture that has some transparency to it.  When you import it, make sure you do that as a DXT3. There are ways to do this without a texture at all, but this way you can make swirlies and stuff. If you would rather do it without a texture, I can show you that as well.

2. Go to the Material Definition (TXMT) and click on Properties.  The following values need to be messed with.  The first thing is the name, the second after the : the actual value.
3.   reflectivity:  .05 (you can vary this)
4. stdMatAlphaBlendMode:  blend
5. stdMatAlphaTestEnabled:  0

You might need to add these if they aren't already in place.  just click add and copy and paste these into the name and value areas:

6. stdMatEnvCubeMode:   reflection
7. stdMatEnvCubeTextureName:  reflectionkitchenhighcontrast-envcube
8. stdMatUntexturedDiffAlpha: anywhere from 0-1.  Glass tables in the game are around .6 This indicates the amount of transparency, but if you are using a semi-transparent texture, you might just want to put it on 1. 

Now click on File list (Tab next to properties) and add:
reflectionkitchenhighcontrast-envcube
##0x1C050000!the entire name of your texture file, minus the txtr extension-for example, an egg I am working on looks like this:
##0x1C050000!paleoretroeggmesh-[paleoanth-4.5.2007-102b31]-surface

If you have problems, I can try and help or I can look at your package and fix it if you want me to.

Thank you all for the comments, I really appreciate and take in what you all say.

Ems, looking back at the vases from chat, I think you should work on the mapping of the second one, as you can see, the areas where the corners meet don't match up.


Well, I decided to change the color of the lens, after remembering the glass floor tutorial, similar to what Paleo has posted, I changed the values for the color of the lenses. They're less dark now, and I could have simply changed the lens color, but the lenses didn't come with a TXTR file. ???

You can change the color without having a texture file.
 
In the Material definitions file, go to stdMatDiffCoef
You will see three numbers.  Those are percentages based upon RGB values.  Find out what color you want either by using your imaging program and hover the eyedropper over the color or use a site like this:

http://web.njit.edu/~kevin/rgb.txt.html (http://web.njit.edu/~kevin/rgb.txt.html)

and use the numbers from the RGB Dec column.

Then take the numbers and divide each by 256 to give you the values to input. 

For example, from the site above, you want the lenses gray.  The RGB Dec values are 84;84;84.  84/256= .328.  The values you would input in SimPE would be .33, .33, .33

The reddish cast is due to the hula lamp next to it.

Edit: *Gasp* How did I miss the huge new pictures!? That couch is very lovely, and looks very fluffy. Now it won't bother me in the least, but since the couch is fluffy does it eat sims?

Wow!
I've submitted to MTS2 already (cause I did not check here for glass tips, FAIL) but I will definitely make a glass version.
Mr Boddy: As I said, I've already submitted it, and I think the reason the texture looks like it doesn't match up is cause of the reflection settings I've got, hence the lines on the image, if that makes sense :D The thumbnail for the glasses looks good, but I'm gonna agree with the others- the lenses were better before.
Tomato: Thanks sooo much for that, I've copied and pasted, and that is gonna be super useful :D As I said, I'll make a glass version and add it to the thread when it's up! and you're objects are gorgeous!

Thanks.  I haven't slaved them, mainly because it didn't occur to me, but I guess I can.  If it would make it easier for recolorists, I am all for that.  I haven't done that before, but how hard could it be?  The chairs are mapped exactly the same way, so I just need to make sure the tables are too.

Tomato its extremely easy to do repository.  And I would love to see it on your stuff.  It makes larger sets so much easier to recolor.  But I am a huge fan of repository anyway.

Here is a tutorial by IgnorantBliss regarding slaving to Maxis.  SimAddict and MsBarrows both have one at TSR that are more geared toward custom.  But the one by IB isn't difficult to make work for new meshes.

I love IB's tutorial on slaving, it's quite helpful when you want to not recolor the same thing over and over again. It's AWWRIGHT if you don't slave the objects, but if you've already started, I suppose you shouldn't stop. lol.

Thanks HL-I had already done the sofa and armchair.  I did use IB's tut.  Wasn't hard at all-and it made sense once I went through it. 

Very cool Mr. Boddy!

Well, the first story in my blog is finished and I've uploaded all the characters. Not sure if they're nom-nom-nomable if you haven't read the story, but I wanted to show off anyway, cause that page took fracking ages to make.  :P

http://simsinspace.wordpress.com/downloads/

Can someone have a quick looksie and see if I did alright with the credits and such, just at first glance? I tried to make absolutely sure I did everything right but I'm still terrified of getting caught up in drama because of me misreading a TOU or something...

Your credits look fine - and just so long as you're not a dick, drama is unlikely.  ;) If you are worried, put a disclaimer on your page.

There is one issue though - the Sam Wraith zip link doesn't open new window/new tab - but directs you away from the site to mediafire.  :)

Ah, I missed that one, it's fixed now. Thanks for having a look!

I guess if anyone has problems with the way I did the credits or how I packaged the sims they can just contact me and I'll do everything I can to make it better. I think I've made it clear on the page that I don't intend to rip anyone off, so I guess I'm in the clear.

Thanks for taking the time  ;)

Yep looks fine to me and the credits are clear and done properly as far as I can see.  I noticed the one bit of CC you didn't know who created you have put a note there to that effect and asked to be told if anyone does know, that indicates your desire to correctly credit the creator.  I don't think you will get any problems  ;D

This is what I'm working on. I'm really liking the way it's turning out. So, I decided to offer it to anyone who wants it. At the moment, I'm only offering it unfurnished. When it's totally done- and I get all the credits worked out, I'll post a finished version- if anyone wants it! Here's the pics:

Furnished upstairs. (Still have to add a few items!)
(http://i33.tinypic.com/11l1qh1.jpg)

Furnished kitchen area.
(http://i38.tinypic.com/10h1ywy.jpg)

Unfurnished downstairs.
(http://i37.tinypic.com/b8trmt.jpg)

Furnished living area. (Small pic- don't know what happened!)
(http://i35.tinypic.com/121aohe.jpg)

Another furnished living area view.
(http://i36.tinypic.com/wgx47m.jpg)

Unfurnished upstairs. (Flaws were fixed since pic)
(http://i38.tinypic.com/16bhdvq.jpg)

Outside view. No landscaping as I prefer to do my own and don't know what others like! (Was taken with 2 apts furnished so ignore drapes and such!)
(http://i35.tinypic.com/28thsvq.jpg)

The furnished pics are to show how I furnished and decorated...also to show what the finished version MIGHT look like. There's 3 apts- all will be similar in layout furniture-wise...but different. The 4th area is meant to be the community area. One thing you need to be aware of: At the moment, the lot is zoned residential. This is because not everyone has AL. So, if you do, you can rezone after you furnish and decorate. If you don't, the doors and stairs won't be there I think.

(New link in a post further down!)

CC included so far:
Polished floorboards in Hardwood- Holy Simoly
N65_Stepping Stone- Nengi65- Simscrossing.net
Craftsman 1-tile Privacy Window, closed- tbdgett@MTS2
Craftsman 2-tile Short Window, closed- same
Craftsman 2-tile Tall Window, closed- same
Any other- Maxis, including Sim Life Stories- Molten Cream Walls

Expansions I have...NL, Pets, Seasons, OFB, AL. Stuff packs...FFS, GL, K&B.

If I've forgotten anything, please let me know! This is the first time I've ever done this and I hope I remembered everything.

mustluvcatz - unfurnished FTW. One of my pet peeves in downloading lots is that they come furnished and I get all of these random bits of furnishings that I do not want. Nice, unfurnished lots are always welcome! :)

LadyDea - I'm semi-close to done.

Anyone want to test the first three? http://www.mediafire.com/?ydm0mjlc94n (http://www.mediafire.com/?ydm0mjlc94n)

I don't think I've ever downloaded a lot. When I opened Clean Installer to take out the furnishings/decorations, I was shocked. For each rug- all meshes and recolors. Curtains, same thing. There was more, I think and I had no idea. That's getting an awful lot of things that you might not want!

Call me partial, but if someone uploaded a lot like the one I'm working on, I WOULD nab it- then again, that'd be because it'd be furnished and decorated in my "style". But, I'd surely use Clean Installer to get rid of what I might not want.

Wallpapers, houses, all nommable! I love the textured wallpapers, it appears they have a good use for the bathroom, even though I don't normally wouldn't wallpaper a bathroom, maybe tile it, but I think I'll use your wallpaper for my bathroom and see how it goes, if it doesn't work out, I'll probably use them for a swanky house. I'll probably wait for the whole set to come out though. :D And the house looks mighty tasty. Are you willing to do a non-CC version of it mustluvcatz? I just like to keep everything organized. ;)

edit: totally forgot about the clean installer.

Whoops! Hey!! I need to fix the house. Er, well, I already did that. But, I thought I had done it already. Turns out I didn't. So, there's no railings for 2 of the staircases...and no floor upstairs in the common area. I already packaged it again..I just need to get the linky. In the meantime, if you don't mind it the way it is...it's there.

And um...call me forgetful...but the roof is cc, too...just can't remember from where at the moment.

There was a mailbox in there that I didn't notice (sedd- so it's not wanted!) I took it and some post recolors (didn't notice them, either) out. So, the file is smaller and the mistaked I thought were fixed ARE fixed now. Sorry about all the goof-ups!

Edited yet again because I am a total idiot...either that or my computer and the game are playing tricks on me. Windows that I know I placed weren't there when I went to play. (I always place windows before I decorate...grrrrrrr.) Then again, I haven't been well...so I could be mistaken. Since the lot is almost fully furnished, I'll wait until I'm done with it and if it's wanted, I'll post it.

What I do is package it, switch to my cc-free testing account, and install the lot there with only the recolors I used. Then repackage in the test account.

I have Numenor's hack for recolors of those basic wooden stairs, and approximately 30 recolors. That means that if I use the stairs and don't even use a recolor, I have those 30 files tagging along. Grr.

Be nice. Be gentle. I've got asthma and came down with bronchitis, which made the asthma worse. So, I ended up at the hospital getting a breathing treatment. Also, I've got a sinus infection. I'm not feeling well!

Not that I'm aware of. Pity about the bronchitis, I had a stint of getting acute bronchitis until I developed walking pneumonia. Somehow the walking pneumonia broke the chain.

Package lot normally.
Go to another account on your Windows, or take your Downloads folder out temporarily. I like having the other account.
Using Clean Installer, open the lot pack.
Uncheck all recolors you know weren't used in the lot.
Install lot.
Fire up game. Place lot.
Make sure nothing is flashing blue or somesuch.
Repackage lot.

I've never had a huge problem deleting the extraneous recolors in Clean Installer, and then just distributing that file.  Without any swapping.  However, that does rely on your ability to identify things from tiny bitty icon boxes.  And I'm sure I've screwed something up at some point, though I haven't gotten any feedback that I have yet.  :D

I try to be mindful of what sort of horrible job it'll be to sort out recolors when I furnish a lot in the first place, though.  Most of my custom content in a lot is build objects, wallpapers, and floors, instead of objects.

You have my admiration for saying how to do that really simply. I've never uploaded a house anywhere before but with the number of mods in my game I would definetly have to do this.  8)

Yay, you got a (well deserved) picked upload! I can't wait to use these windows, thanks Fway :) Can I request something? You know the dark blue, red and yellow bohemian doors and matching windows, could you make a completer set for those too, please? I really like them but I'd love single windows, single exterior doors and matching interior doors.

I'll see what I can do Ms. Emma. I'll have to check to see what's there and what I'll need to scale, wonk, etc. I haven't used the bohemian set that much, but I think that would be a good idea...

I got bored the other day, and whilst making a sim version of myself (yet another one, every time I look at the old one, it doesn't look like me...) I decided I want my PMBD tee shirt. So I recolored a couple of "untuckable" tees and decided maybe someone here might like to have one.
(Sorry for lack of in-game previews, my game won't start up. *shakes fist at computer*)

Nifty windows and door now safe and snug as a bug in a rug in my dl folder. Thanks Mr. B/fway!

You may have noticed that I took out the link for the lot I did. That's because there were still mistakes. (I honestly didn't know- I think I was more worried about breathing.) AND, I just read about how to upload lots at MTS2. Don't know why I never thought of reading that before. So, I now know what and what not to do. When the lot is totally done, I'll post it. In fact, I might get brave enough to submit it (probably unfurnished though) to MTS...if someone here would be kind enough to try it out for me.

Emma, I can see why you want a Bohemian completer set. My oh my, those look very good to tinker around with. I am wondering if I should take the risk of making a wall light for the Bohemian set, that would sure make a good wall lamp, too. If I do it right, I'd definitely include it.

EmilyTwitch, that is probably a good way to promote the booty, or at least go on a trip to twikki island with. ;)

Mr. B your new sets are hawt, thanks for doing that. I'm standing right behind Emma waiting for those new ones.

Small question. Is there a way of reversing footprints so that the front becomes the back? I have a problem on some my mangled lots with windows that have stuff on the outside i.e, pediments and whatnot. I have to put them in backwards because they're only 1 click from the sidewalk and I end up only being able to use ones that are the same front and back. Just thought you might know.

I just rolled a Fortune sim who gets his LTW fulfilled ...of owning 5 businesses. One is going to be his mom's art store, but that's four more. It works for my BACC, but that's a lot of commercial building. A bakery, a newstand, a karoake club, a bar. So both sets of windows are going to be really needed!

Elpemmy, you're using Blender, correct? I thought there was no trial period in Blender. I think the mesh should be a little less boxy around the edges, try going for some circular shapes. It has much room for improvement. ;)

Completely finished now, they just need a quick zip up and they'll be uploaded ;)

Yes, I'm using Blender, but I use a separate meshing program for UVmapping and smoothing, which the trial has run out.

Eh? I'm fairly certain that you can both UVmap and smooth in Blender (in fact, I'm positive of it). Why are you using a separate programme for this? Do you just like to make things more complicated for yourself? ??? ;)

*grumbles in irritation because she can't have beautiful windows due to the fact that she still doesn't have anything past Seasons and curses EA even more loudly. All because of SecuROM, she won't buy any more of their games no matter how cool* I'd really love it if someone could make independent meshes of those windows so that I wouldn't need the EP... Then again, if I had any talent with that sort of thing, I'd do it my damn self but seeing as I don't, gonna shut my mouth about it. :( *envious but sticking to her guns* Ah well, there is always the way of the Pirate Cat.

Well there's also ARR-ing the game, but I could understand why you wouldn't want to get the L&P. I stopped supporting Evil Axis, but wanted their stuffs because I have some kind of addiction with the game. Especially meshing, oh the things I will be doing to those plants once that new L&P comes out! Oh hell to the yes! But your boyfriend did a bad thing for the lose. Scold him for reticulating. :p

Very pretty zyrylla! I don't normaly download sims because I like to "make" my own. But she'd go well with a guy I recently made.

Anyone for a lot? (Lots are my favorite things to create as may be becoming obvious!) I don't have it all packaged and zipped yet, but here's some pics and if anyone wants it, I'll post it later. The shot of the front at night is my favorite. In-game it's really pretty.

mustluvcatz - That lot looks good! I love the landscaping.

Thank you! That was the point of that lot- landscaping. I suck at it, so I wanted to practice. That lot took me longer than the one I'm playing now- I whipped that one out in an hour. The landscaped one? Took about 3. Silly, isn't it?

I will be posting it...and the one I've been playing (which is packaged BUT I have to remove a column and replace it with one that can be "redistributed"). Oh, and the apartment lot- which is waiting on a table..and I think I might landscape it a bit. ( I really, really like building lots.)

Alrighty, well, since we're all sharing...  ;D
Since Devilfish expressed interest in getting my Elphaba/Elphie/Fabala/Fae Sim a while ago, I thought I would finally upload her.
First off, pictures! Taken in bodyshop because I was feeling distinctly lazy.  :)

(http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f114/dusdeedawn/Fae4-1.jpg)(http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f114/dusdeedawn/Fae6.jpg)(http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f114/dusdeedawn/Fae5-1.jpg)

I tweaked her a tad from the pictures I put in (I think it was) the Free Content Pwns Paysite Crap thread. For instance, her eyes are no longer Yumedust's Eye Love (http://www.modthesims2.com/download.php?t=265555), but rather Stefan's Seductive Eyes (http://stefan.wickedsims.com/).
I'm also putting up two versions; one with custom hair and clothing, and one with Maxis base game hair and clothing.
The maxis version looks like this:
(http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f114/dusdeedawn/Fae.jpg)(http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f114/dusdeedawn/Fae2-1.jpg)

The Clean Installer looks like this:
(http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f114/dusdeedawn/FaeS2P.jpg)

And for credit.
Hair is, of course, Nouk's lovely Jolien Hair (http://www.noukiesims2.net/tiny/index.php?PHPSESSID=9f62b3508981892eb54cdea012b19270&topic=204.0) (the newer version).
Awesome clothing is by Azaya (http://www.digitalperversion.net/gardenofshadows/index.php?topic=5992.0) at GoS with a sweet mesh by ~Nixie~ (http://linna.modthesims2.com/download.php?t=300687) at MTS2.
Eyes are by Stefan (http://stefan.wickedsims.com/). To find them it goes Stefan Sims>Genetics>Seductive Eyes.
A big huge thanks to them for sharing their incredible creations, and having TOSes that allow me to include them with Fae.

Oh, crap, the rest of the stuff. Let's see if I can find it all. Okay, skin blend by buffybot (http://dlmulsowssim-antics.com/viewtopic.php?f=161&t=1420), Cheek stuff by  AtomicSpaceKitty (http://www.modthesims2.com/member.php?u=305028), liner by Gala/Eph/_K (good luck on that), eyebrows and spot by some Daum (http://daum.mustbedestroyed.org/) creators, I think. Oh, and some lip junk that I got off the exchange years ago. I think that's everyone. Huzzah.

Now, finally, for Download links:

Fae with all CC (http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?ywzvzxiodzj)

Fae with Maxis Hair and Clothes (http://www.mediafire.com/?yzgzdyyujzg)

And all of this for you, Devilfish. I hate you.  ;D

Oh, and a bonus picture of her as with a witch's hat. I took it and I'm not wasting it.  :P

Why, thank you, Mr. Boddy!

Here's something I'd like to know: is it good enough for MTS2? I know I'd have to change out the doors and windows, and take out the tiny lights. Otherwise, content-wise it's alright. In fact, almost all the content I used is from creators at MTS2.
Lots are my favorite thing to do. I create (make?) sims, too but not as much. (My avatar is my self-sim.) Ever since I got the game, I build houses and almost always bulldoze them after awhile. So, I'd like to do something with them instead of just playing at building. I'm not afraid to admit that I don't think my houses are up to par with what I see offered already at MTS2.
So...opinions wanted! And anyone can answer this. You don't even have to dl it- pics are on previous page.

Thanks, FP!

@ catz: Oh, totally. If MTS2 doesn't want it, then less power to them. There's always mediafire, and I, for one, want that house!

Catz, that house is quite awesome. And if I still actually played the game, as opposed to just making lots, I'd totally want it. ^^

The sims I make are never anything great, but this one I liked enough to share. I don't know if anyone wants her, but if they do I will put her for download.

Well, thank you very much for the comments!

And Beth, I thought about that. Well, not Nouk in particular...but anyone. That'd probably be less hassle. So, if anyone is interested....they're more than welcome to let me know. Since I'm adding 3 teenagers (very temporarily) to my household, which will bring us to 5 teens and 1 pre-teen...I'm sure I'll be building to relax!


edited because I can't count...sheesh...only ONE pre-teen!

Why, thank you, Mr. Boddy!

Here's something I'd like to know: is it good enough for MTS2? I know I'd have to change out the doors and windows, and take out the tiny lights. Otherwise, content-wise it's alright. In fact, almost all the content I used is from creators at MTS2.
Lots are my favorite thing to do. I create (make?) sims, too but not as much. (My avatar is my self-sim.) Ever since I got the game, I build houses and almost always bulldoze them after awhile. So, I'd like to do something with them instead of just playing at building. I'm not afraid to admit that I don't think my houses are up to par with what I see offered already at MTS2.
So...opinions wanted! And anyone can answer this. You don't even have to dl it- pics are on previous page.
I'd say so. It's better than a lot I see. I especially like the way the stone pathway is laid out and blends due to the landscaping. I tend to get lazy and leave funky ends.

That's what I used to do, too. Plus, I didn't really have any terrain paints besides the Maxis ones...and those are so, well, b-o-r-i-n-g. Then, I found the one of nengi's. THEN I found an awesome set at MTS2 by P..oh heck. I don't remember. It's not phoenix_phaerie I'm thinking of, but there is a Ph in there. Anyway, I love 'em. They're actually floor tiles that were converted. So, now I'm having fun landscaping another lot. I just need to find more brick- walls, floors, terrain. (I like brick. I'd love to have a brick house in rl!)
Anyway, as for the lot. I don't know about MTS2. I'd rather leave it as is and with a few of the items I used, I'd most likely have to change those. So..I'll come out and say it: If anyone's looking for some new lots (to put on their site) from a not-the-greatest-but-getting-better-at-it newbie...I'm game. The only thing is: I'd like to keep them unfurnished.

Lady Dea, I love your Sim.  She's got a pretty, vulnerable look to her.  Very sweet. 

And Catz?  Excellent house.  If MTS2 doesn't want it, they're crazy.  I've seen far far worse on the site.

Sorry if I sounded harsh, Mr. Boddy.  Once you can fix that issue, those will be awesome windows.  I really thought those were finished windows you found someplace and posted in the wrong thread. 

Once they're finished though, I want them.  Badly.  I've become this window fanatic lately, I can't get enough new windows into my game.

To Paleoanth?   I thought you'd like to see, I put your latest set into my game right away!

Well, I don't mind if somebody makes customized versions of any of my windows, just put the credit where it's due. When they come out whoever wants to take on the job can make versions not linked to the maxis ones if they like, but my suggestion if they do is to clone the original windows/doors onto a base game mesh and making that the master and taking it from there. :)

I was feeling really nice one day (don't expect this to happen often) and mustluvcatz asked for a 3x3 coffee table.  Mind you, it is huge and she is testing it for me, but if anyone else is interested, I can upload it at Calalily's place.  It is available in both residential and community lots, so it might be a nice thing to add to a community lot.  I have updated the footprints and made it so the sims respect the new space (they don't walk through it).   It is along the lines of the shaker set I made, so it is wood, but it would look OK redone in metal or a solid color.  I have added one container slot, but can certainly add more-or you can just use OMSP's from MTS2.

It is HUGE

Nope, but I can try that. 

ETA: I cannot use high, only about 2%, but it still looks pretty good that way.  Good idea!  However, if I do that, it will take an approximately 900 poly object and make it a 5,000 poly object.  With 9 tiles that is not a big deal, but just wanted to let you know.

Oh sorry, I actually meant ingame. The edges display a little jagged... lol yeah do not want birgit polylikeness  ;D

Paleo- I can't find the screenies I took!! Bah! So- I'll just have to tell you for right now. My simmies couldn't sit on the couch- so I had to use the boolprop snapobjects cheat. But, I didn't have to move it that far out. And, the drawers look a bit off. (I wish I could find the screenshot.) Oh...I see that Nouk already said the edges look a little jagged. To me, it wasn't the whole table, just by the drawers. Other than that...I like it- and the drawer thing doesn't really bother me. I really like the wood grain that you can see and the color. It's nice and warm just like I asked. Wish I could return the favor but I don't make objects. If you ever want a lot done a certain way...just ask!

Here's the only pic I have of the front (seem to have disappearing screenies!):
(http://i35.tinypic.com/10rs9b4.jpg)
The inside DOES have floors and walls now.

This lot is officially done. Packaged, credits done. But, I'm not posting it here! Why? Because I can do 2 or 3 lots a day...and I'm not going to hog this thread. So, I'm going to do one of 3 things- have my son design me a site of my own (lots and only lots), started submitting them to MTS2 (even though I don't really know if that's what I want to do) or offer them to anyone who wants to host them on their site.

Well a smaller one mostly for use in tiny houses. I like to build mostly small houses, with the occasional gigantic one, but there's not really enough room for a 3x3 table. :( It looks rather lovely though.

Me? A tease? Nah. I'm serious. The name of this thread isn't "Look what mustluvcatz made..". I have to admit, I'm having fun doing all these lots- since that's basically what I've done since the beginning and I DO like being able to share what I make. But, I'm honest enough to admit that I feel like I'm hogging the thread. Besides, how many lots can everyone possibly want or need? Of course, if anyone wants to insist, I will share. But, it's not all about me and I know it!


Edited because: Will you all stop making me look things up?? Now I've got to figure out whether or not you're trying to get me drunk on wine so's you can steal the house or calling me a French lieutenant.  ;D

I think it may be a South Park reference- one of the kids offers to "Rochambeau" the other one, meaning (in the cartoon anyway) kick eachother in the nuts, whoever's left standing wins. That's what I immediately thought of at least... :-[

Are you kidding me?  I hate doing recolors.  I SUCK at it.  I am always incredibly grateful that someone recolors my stuff or anything to share, so that I don't have to.  I don't do the texture shading well, I don't have the patience to find good textures or make them.  I did two projects with a recolor artist, who made my meshes look so much better than I ever could.  Working with her taught me a lot about mapping for easy recolors as well.  LOVE recolorers.

Hey kids. :)

Guess what you're getting this Christmas.

Each set has 10 recolours (200 lips, yikes!). I've also made a bunch of eyeshadows (for Asian sims, glitzy glitteries, and some quirky ones for goth lovers) and liners.

Forgot!! Love the kitchen recolors!! In fact, those recolors are what convinced me to download the set.
AND: I already see some makeups I like!


Edited again because one of the pics disappeared. Hmmmmm.....I think I'm gonna have to talk to my son...I sent him a link and "poof" a pic disappears.

Sorry for the smiley spam, but this post required it. I agree about the teeth, because I'm not a huge teeth/lipsticks person. And those eyeshadows are to die for! I can't wait to have them in my game. And abuse them fully and properly[/size

And I saw drones, I really like that Arts and Crafts set. Now I am wondering, is the house furnished? And if not, do we have to download all of the wallpaper for it to appear as it looks? I know it says some meshes were included, but that could mean plants and the latter.

 ;)
It is fully furnished, all the furniture is maxis (I have all EP's & SP's except FFS and holiday stuff thingy), the plants outside are included, and any meshes that didn't get included in the packaging process (from memory, these are the base meshes for the interior door frames etc, and the vines on the front of the house) are included with the lot rar (in a separate rar inside the main one..). The wallpapers and stuff that are used in the lot are already included, but there are many more in the separate wallpaper rar as well. I don't think the cushion recolours for the stupid sofas and dining furniture was included, so you know its probably best to download the stuff you want and the lot and just use the clean installer to install the house. Or just download the all in one rar and delete the stuff you don't want, and clean installer it? Uploading lots is stressful  :-\ *phew*

Its things like this that I should probably mention, right?  ::) Can you tell I'm new to this shit? lol.

I've been wanting some asian-style eyeshadows for awhile.  However, I hardly have any sims pale enough to use the ones put out by the asian creators.

Are they going to come in a few different base shades, like those asymmetry shadows?  I use the hell out of those because they change up the face a little, and they matchy-match.  Darker-based eyeshadows with the fold would rock.  Not that it would keep me from getting them, but I would use them so much more if I started out with more potential sims to put them on. XD

Okay, first off, I know the mesh needs some adjusting - this is just for suggestions - I used the striped bedding to make any flaws show up more easily, though I'm not sure how much on the corners I'll bother changing.  Obviously, it won't work for all beds - but it will, with the right bedframe, give the illusion of one of those fancy beds, while being a maxis-match repository item.

Its been giving me some fits - I might actually need to install blender for making the rough mesh then do the final manipulating in milkshape.  I for the life of me can't figure out how to make the extrude work properly.

Doh!  Helps if I include the picture, doesn't it?

It's coming out good so far, Soggy. I really like the top of the blanket next to the pillows. One thing I would like to point out (don't hit me!  :D) is at the foot of the bed, the blanket seems to be hugging the frame very closely, it looks more boxy and less... um... 'flow-y'. Although, now that I think about it, that might come in handy with bedframes that have a foot-piece-thingy. I don't know. But I think that it's shaping up to be awesome. I have some bedding colors in my game that would look fantastic on that mesh like that, so I'm super excited already.


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: SoggyFox on 2008 November 23, 21:02:54
Yeah - It wasn't as obvious in milkshape that it was so boxy at the foot.  And it looks better with patterned fabrics, rather than stripes.  I used one of my asian prints while meshing it to make sure it didn't stretch badly in spots.

Also going to do some other pieces for this - some different curtains, some more pillows and variations on the coverlets themselves - and versions for single beds.

You know, might be kind of fun to maybe confab a project together - different folks work on different things, and make a master texture holder object - like the Trianon project at MTS2 - all the wood, all the cloth, all the everything - matching and cohesive....

Or I could just be insane.

I outsmarted myself - I redid the mesh for the coverlet with more polys, so I could make it look more fluid - and now its too many polys for simpe.  So, we're onto take 3.

And for this grand project, does anyone have any ideas on a theme?  Or is it just make nifty stuff that all mixes and matches well?

And do we want to make everything repository off of maxis items?

Argh - hope you didn't delete that.  In SimPE go into Extra - Preferences - ?Settings from memory - and click "Advanced mode" - then it will accept any amount of polys you can give it from Milkshape.  I had a similar problem with one of my meshes - polys were fine for a giant object, but SimPE objected because it treated it like a one tile object.  :)

That did the trick, Cala.

There are still some issues that I don't know how to fix, as seen in one of the two pictures below.  It comes from mapping it, then deleting a row of the foot's length later.  Also the sheet portion at the top stretches so it doesn't work well for patterned sheets.

(http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d152/Reynfox/Previews/snapshot_00000014_76384400.jpg)

On the other hand, with a solid sheet and an all over texture, it looks decent - opinions?

When you map it, try picking "Scale Result" and make the image 1024x1024, or even 2048x2048 if need be.

Post by: SoggyFox on 2008 November 25, 21:35:49
Inside milkshape - I map, then move everything around, so it is mapped right even on the angles.

The real problem is that with the sheet part, even using the fitted sheet part, which is sizeable, it stretches out the stripes and makes them pixelated.  That and I was using one of my own beddings, since I already had the graphic available to work with and didn't have to fetch it.

There is a similar issue with the pillow meshs I did - and it doesn't bother me much, since even most maxis bedding looks good with it, with only a few exceptions.

Maybe export the groups you're having trouble with and map them separately. 


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: Paleoanth on 2008 November 25, 21:44:18
I actually use a combination of UV mapper and milkshape.

You might (and I don't know for sure without looking at it) have to do some funky stuff with the texture itself.  Making things smaller in one area and larger in another.  Kind of like when you have to do clothing.

That is totally my fault and not yours.  I lumped everything together in the map, to make it easier.  The only thing I could do at this point, would be to take your textures and remap the tables to them. 


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: i saw drones on 2008 November 25, 22:00:53
Well I don't know shit about mapping, and ease is usually super best option, but I mean it would be kindof cool if like, say, you could put some sort of design in the panels on the drawers, or emphasise the shadows around them, or something in a recolour. I tried to fudge it but it clearly only sortof works on the big table (which I was surprised actually doesn't seem that big in the game, nice job!)
I'm not into making peoples lives difficult though, haha, so it's totally up to you what you'd like to do  :D

Anyway, here is what I have so far...

There are three recolours, mahogany, pine and oak.
It would of been awesome if I could of done different coloured handles and shadowing but I'm crap at trying to figure out where to put the different bits so it's just wood recolours at the mo.

I have done the rest of the sizes too, but my game decided to freeze as I was taking shots, and now I'm too tired to boot it back up again so it'll have to wait until tomorrow.

Nice mesh by the way!!

Oh, I did map things at different sizes.  But there is a limit on how much sheet texture area there is - it is mapped separate from the bedspread areas.  Maybe I'm missing something here - today has been tiring.  I need to make an alternate version of my pillows that sit a bit higher than the originals, which are designed for the normal bed - and I still plan on making some curtains, and trying my hand at a new sofa set as well.  Maybe some throws for sofas and chairs as well.

Ohh, those are some superb recolors, guys. If only my hard drive hadn't gotten baleeted, I would download them. I came home tonight to find that my laptop has died. The culprit is the hard drive, which means I cannot recover anything that was on that computer. However, I found that the hard drive is a Samsung and I will be replacing it with a Seagate.

That being said, I will not be able to do any Sims things at all. They are gone. If anyone here would like to continue any of my previous projects, like "Totally Tabular", they should. The mansion and garden stuff objects need to be tabularized, because EAxis is made of fail. I won't be able to play or anything until after Christmas, but I'll still be here thanks to my trusty ol' backup computer that has been in my house for over 4 years. I just won't be able to download anything or play.

I really hate to hear that and I completely sympathize.  My laptop hard drive died almost a year ago as well.  Fortunately, I had a heads up that it was going to happen and was able to save everything before I replaced the HD.  Does the disc spin at all?  If so, you might be able to recover your files.

Does the disc spin at all? 

Does the *click click click* sound constitute as spinning? It just keeps saying "operating system not found." I did put the XP CD in for a recovery but it said that there is no hard disk when the hard drive WAS in correctly on the computer. I could use the HP recovery disks, but if it keeps saying that the hard drive is not found I think I should just get a new hard drive.

This (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148364) will probably be my new baby, since the old hard drive that came with the computer was a Samsung which I heard has a bad reputation anyhow.

I am not brilliant at meshing and stuff like most of you guys... Man, this thread is making me want to increase the size of my downloads folder.
Anyway, I'm trying to work on an underwear set for children, stuff that doesn't look creepy that I would have actually worn as a child. I'm thinking about trying to convert the boys' t-shirts and boxers for girls, too. But while I'm working on the set and all that, I was wondering if I could perhaps get some feedback on the first part of it I finished:

(http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b33/nVoxhewson/ingame2.jpg)

It took me quite a bit of time to try to get the shading around the orange edging right. It still looks too subtle to me, but I am quite picky about what I put in my game, even stuff I've poured my own sweat and blood into.
What do you think? Any suggestions for the next one I make?

Mr. Boddy: Since you're hearing clicking, it's still spinning- or at least trying to. Clicking usually means the heads are damaged. The data on might be recoverable- if you're willing to pay to get that done. Clicking CAN also mean that there are bad sectors on the drive- but since you get the "operating system not found" message I think it's the heads. The heads can be replaced, but that involves taking the drive apart and you've got to have the right kind of heads to use as a replacement....

Get your new drive and if what you have on the other one is stuff you can't bear to part with, take it in and see if they can fix it and/or recover the data.

P.S. The "operating system not found"? Firmware problem- which wouldn't make any noise. That's why I'm not sure your data could be recovered. But, seeing as I'm not a professional and only know what I know from tinkering around with my own computers- this is just my opinion and I could be wrong.

My mom was partial to making us nightgowns.  But all my clothes were handmade or handmedowns from friends of the family.  I don't see how families function always getting new clothes for their kids.

It's bloody impossible and as soon as we get moved this spring, the old sewing machines are coming out, fabric and patterns are being bought and new clothes for the boy are being made. Yes, I can sew by hand, but it's faster with a machine.

Oh, yes - much faster - I mostly knit and crochet, but I've sewn a few things for myself, because I don't like most modern fashions, especially in my size.

Only thing its not faster for is stuffed animals, because fluff clogs everything.

Oh heartless those jammies are adorable! So cute, in fact I want them for my ladies, mind if I convert them?

And yay new tables! I will say I always have the hardest time finding decent coffee tables/end tables. But now my search is complete! Would anyone mind do some rustic recolors, like how some creators do the chipped away white paint? I will nom them once my new processor gets installed into my poor dying compy.

And as a theme I think we should do shabby chic-esque. Similar to this:

Beth - really nice recolors! Commented and grabbed em at GOS. Paleo, I hope my comment at GOS doesn't seem mean! I like your stuff! :) Heartless - really cute undies, the only thing that I noticed on them is that the shorts could use a little more shading around the trim. Shabby chic sounds good, MissBonBon. I'm already thinking worn out beach houses and overgrown gardens... with beach bums and slightly strange old ladies... also, lots of florals.

I wore skinnies all during my teens and into my twenties, then hit the sweatpants stage of pregnancy and by the time I was out of that, I figured I'm gonna wear what I damn well fucking please, in fashion or not. I'm still like that, even if I am grumpier now than I was then.

I miss bell-bottoms too. Skinny jeans make my thighs and calves look like turkey drumsticks. I kind of straddle the line between skinnies and full-on flared jeans by wearing boot-cuts.

It's okay, but not crash hot. I am personally displeased with the thin look of it, but seeing as it's finished, should I just upload it?  Would any of you download it - honesty please, because I wasn't planning to upload it, and wouldn't use it, and then I thought I should ask. :P

I really like the seat part, with the wide band and thin metal seat.  But the backs and sides look they are defying gravity to me.  Realistically they wouldn't hold weight.  The design of it though is really nice. 

The table however, looks really good and sturdy.  :)

That seat part?  Take that and scale it to a bedframe and throw a mattress on it.  Then add cables at an angle to make it look like an attached bunk.  And clone Inge's wall bunk beds.  :P  That would be cool.

It's all planes - so the base just looks sturdy - but you're the same as me - the backs look flimsy.

Its almost a shame you are thinking of scrapping the set - but I can understand not wanting to go back in and attempt to give it more substance.  It does look too flimsy to be real, but the design is absolutely lovely.

Cala, I like the idea, but it just doesn't look right to me. To echo what everyone has already said, it looks to flimsy and of course as you know flat. I like how the backs are butterflies, so maybe if you move the butterfly up and put normal legs on the bench/chair it might look a tad sturdier. Maybe if you try to make a version in wood it might help as well. Like having the backs, legs, and arm rests in the iron, and then the seating part like a normal bench. And one last thing, if you made it so the butterfly and seat could be recolored separately I'm sure lots of lovely colorful recolors would come of it as well.

I think that's a good idea - I was stupidly trying to make it more compatible for recolouring with different patterns, and fucked it completely.  I'll put on a solid base, and some armrests, and make the back a flat butterfly I think - maybe slightly curved.

No problem. :D But I'm going to fix the slight sinking thing going on with those legs - they dip slightly into the ground. Due to the blackness of the mesh you can't see it well.

The table does look like one of those wrought-iron bistro tables.  If you come back to the seating later, it'd also be cool to see what it would look like if you could add a glass tabletop to that table.

Yeah, I was thinking of the sort of stippled glass that's common in outdoor sets.  It already looks like there's a lip meshed on the edge of the tabletop for it to fit within.

Of course, I'm not a mesher, and I've seen people have issues doing glass in the past, so I don't know how hard that is.

Very cute houses!

My new bed decor items have been put on hold.  I'm about to dive into html and then go through all my older items and redo their photos - now that I'm better at photo taking in-game.  I want to make this new subsite of mine as professional and easy to navigate as possible.

So, I expect I'll get back to work on the bedding next week unless the site comes together really fast - but I'm also still redownloading all the CC I want to make sure its all up to date [hopefully the hacks all are], and make it tidier - despite my best intentions, it wasn't so tidy last go and it had a lot of CC from the one contest I was involved in last year.

[pic here]

Please bear in mind that it may need to be re-tooled slightly depending on how it fits the sims in their beds.

Ah! It's very fluffy. I like it, good for super fancy and/or super lazy sims  ;D. The bed has a nice shape, and doesn't look like you've sacrificed polys for looks (although I'm sure it's nice and fairly low poly).

As usual, I've got some critiques though, heh. I like the softnest of it, and the fact that your pillows aren't all the same size and have some variety. They seem a little bit too perfect to me though; a few dents and pulls on the fronts and sides could help with this. They appear to have quite "soft" sides so that should leave you with enough polys to play around with.

As well, is that the final texture on the bed frame and headboard? It looks a little flat to me, and maybe slightly too reminiscent of particle board for such an expensive looking bed. A bit of detail and shading would make a big difference, I think.

I'm also not sure how keen I am with the roundness of the bedskirt (although that may just be a personal taste thing). It maybe feels like, I don't know, it should have more weight? Shouldn't be so round? Be a little less defined? Too much of the same repeated shape? It's not that it feels stiff, but it doesn't necessarily remind me of the way that fabric (even poofy fabric) would fall. Although, I do like the way you've treated the front of the bed, but maybe it's just the lack of absolute exactness that I'm liking there (I like things a bit messy :D).

Has less polys than than the master bed (forget its name).   ;D

Will do - I tend to be too mathematical with it all - making things match and be the same. Thanks :)

I'm not that happy with it myself - I might change the head and base boards completely.  Seemed like a good idea at the time, based on the pictures, but I too am displeased with the flatness of the frame.  Even though I spent some time on the sticks at the side, they're not looking as good as I wanted them, or how I envisioned they'd look. 

I'm also not sure how keen I am with the roundness of the bedskirt (although that may just be a personal taste thing). It maybe feels like, I don't know, it should have more weight?

Although, I do like the way you've treated the front of the bed, but maybe it's just the lack of absolute exactness that I'm liking there (I like things a bit messy :D).

Will try to change it up - again, too mathematical.  The picture I based it on had a very fluffy sort of look - like there were swathes of fabric, but somewhere in compromising on polys, it lost its original idea.

Speaking as someone with a very fluffy bed (got an awesome mattress pad marked down from $100 to like $30 not too long ago--my fitted sheet won't fit anymore, but I digress), I think it looks comfy!  I agree that the bedskirt's a little iffy...mine have all draped, with a little bit of pleating.  That one looks like it's made out of MOAR pillows, which sounds comfy, but obviously means you should put it ON the bed and not under it. XD

The pillows are all leaning on the headboard at nearly the same angle, so perhaps having them not all so vertical will help with the regularity.  They could still be symmetrically arranged between left and right like you have them, plenty of people make their bed like that, but I don't know that they'd rest all like that without a couple falling down more flat.  If that makes any sense.

I can actually see the bedframe mesh working out if you found or painted a texture that was solid wood with designs carved into it.  Perhaps lower the crest of the headboard a tad, and I think I've even slept in a bed that looked like that before!

It does - I'll do that - shift them around a bit, change the way that they sit there. :)

Designs carved into it - that's a nice idea. :) I'll try to do something about the frame - but that will take longer than the pillows tweaking.  :D

Ah, there we are! The pillows are now looking more like they would be filled with feathers instead of foam (although I'd still recommend you go even further with them; hold back your Pythagorasness and really punch those pillows down! :D). I'm with Quinctia on the arrangement of them, I think it'll cut down that overly exact quality.

I'm liking the bed skirt much better (although still maybe a bit too repeated). Try kicking up (well moving forward and up, I guess) a few of the polys on the bottom, and add a few lights folds and dents through the middle (again, it looks like you should have enough polys for it).

Now with less regular pillows, and lowered headboard (which I think makes it look better) as advised by Quinctia.

*dives into pillows*

Yeah, I'd say it looks more real now. :D  I think the headboard looks better in that position, too.  Before it didn't seem quite symmetrical enough with the other end of the bed, and now the frame looks more cohesive.

I think I'm going to head to bed now.  I'm embarrassed to admit it, but I've been completely done in by a texture I wanted to make into a wallpaper.  I just couldn't quite get it seamless, and I got so sick of copying and pasting and layers, I just tossed it all out!  XD

Ah lovely! Now there's a bed skirt I can get behind ;D, and the pillows look great (much more natural and relaxed). The slightly rumpled look makes a big difference; still a big, beautiful bed, but a big, beautiful bed that actually looks like it could be (and is) used. I like the headboard in the new position as well, much less overwhelming this way.

Cala that is fantastic! It looks a lot like my bed, except mine's a green/yellow/dark green plaid. I definitely love it and I think Mando and Quinctia have given you great advice.  :) Now my only question, will it be repository, or will it require separate recolors?


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)

You wanted separate recolours, and because of the pillows, I don't think it *could* be repository, unless you like Pythagorean colour decoration.  :D

I know - how lucky am I to have them both at my fingertips when I post.  :P

 :) Yay! I can't wait to have it in my game. My last request, but since it will require separate recolors, could you maybe use these beddings on it:

http://calalily.sublimesims.net/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=50&Itemid=102
7th down on the far right

8th down with the fishes

3rd down, grey one with the flowers

http://calalily.sublimesims.net/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=46&Itemid=98
5th down, the white and orange one on the far left

That's all for now, seeing as I have to go off to work.  :( And maybe could you do one of those yellow/red/blue things that some creators do to make recoloring easier? I think I might want to try converting some of my favorite bedding onto it. I'm sorry if I'm overloading you, but that bed makes me squee with joy.

Dude - it's so easy you'll be putting ruffles on everything.

Here's a link to a bigger picture if you need it: http://i38.tinypic.com/ou7hbl.jpg

(http://i38.tinypic.com/4shd00.jpg)

1. Make a sphere with 10 stacks. I left the slices at 12 - no need for more.

2. Cut its bum off so that it's a section - do it in parts because you might accidentally delete more than you want because it's a sphere.

3. Once its bum is cut off it will have no back - but that's okay

4. Cut its head and tail off, so without the spherityness it looks roughly like a square. *Don't try to spherify planes to skip to this step - they just get harsh*

5. Spread its vertices out to totally square - I select by individual vertex and move it, rather than scaling, which can take longer.  At this point in the model, map it - because it's not going to be a different texture ruffle to ruffle, and this will make your life easier later.

6. CTRL+A to select all, CTRL+D to duplicate selection, move it, and for a little less uniformity, don't move it exactly (of course this is my Pythagorean idea of less uniformity :P ) and then select each vertex that corresponds with the others and CTRL+N to snap them together.

7. Once you've made it as long as you need to make it (e.g. the length of the bed) select the whole thing and then duplicate again.  Don't move it or anything - just Reverse Vertex Order to put a back on it.

8. Select the bottom row and pull it up to even with the next row up - this will give it a nice finish, make the bottom flat, while hiding the bottom of the mesh

9. Straighten the top. Regroup at your leisure.

10. Done. Now some randomising like mando and Quinctia suggested - what I found to be most effective was to select a section and rotate it.  :)

And for those of you who find this after tinypic has deleted the picture, the tutorial is now up on my site (http://calalily.sublimesims.net/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=131&Itemid=163)

Hell, that's a lot easier than my method for making pleats and the like.  What I do is get a plane that has a ton of sections [ via blender ], map it, then mold it about as if it were fabric.

Hmmm - wonder how mixing it would work...

Huzzah! I don't know how you can use planes without taking up a lot more polys.  Plus I found that it's so much more difficult - with the sphere, that plane is already pre-rounded. This way is fairly low poly - and I'm always concerned about polys.

I like it, and it's much improved over the original. I still think the bed texture could use a bit of work (am I ever satisfied?!). The wood grain looks a little large for the size of the bed (although it could have been a giant tree :D), and could probably be shrunk down a bit. I like the fact that you've started to think about defining the edges of the furniture, but I think the line may be a bit harsh. It could probably be helped by a bit of smudging, colour layering and blending. In terms of detail, I'm thinking it could use a few more light cracks, knots and the like. Even wood on an expensive, fancy bed is going to have some character. I'll use an example of a wood texture that I made some (a long, heh) time ago. Sorry the picture is so tiny!

(http://img209.imageshack.us/img209/4627/woodexamplemj0.jpg)

You can see that I've darkened the edges slightly in order to define them from the rest of the wood and to highlight other objects. I've also added layers of cracking in order to build up definition and detail in the wood. Obviously, the wood I made here is meant to be distressed and messy, so you wouldn't have to go this far; however, layering up and adding detail and distressed areas will make a big difference to the success of the texture in the end. I know you hate texturing but it's the little things like this that will give it more depth, and maybe you'll, er, grow to love it at some point in the future. :D

I spent a lot of time thinking about the shapes that they use.  Some of the complex meshes you see around - it's hard to figure out how they are done.  Painstakingly moving 3000 vertices - not so fun - and it's difficult to get a feel for where the hell you're supposed to move them.  And of course, I suspect many I've pondered over are plundered from modelling sites, rather than built from the ground up.

I also made another tutorial (never thought I'd have anything to tute at all :P ) on how to make swathes (http://calalily.sublimesims.net/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=132&Itemid=164) for another little shortcut I used involving cyclinders.  I'll think about tubes too. :D .

Well - I'll admit I got carried away with subdividing my last attempt - you can get good shaping though from about 36-64 sections though - and part of my high poly count on the second attempt was from making it two sides.  Once I get my pictures and finish up my page, I'll get back to work on it, likely right at the first of the year - got a few presents to knit up first.

Calaliliy, I'm not mando, but I've got to say that I like that bed the best so far. The only thing I don't like is one of the pillows because it looks like it doesn't belong with the rest of them. The lighter one in the back- imo it would look better if you made it more like the smaller, lighter colored one that looks like it has vines or flowers on it....OR, if not more like that one, maybe switch them around- make the bigger one have the smaller one's texture and vice versa? That big pillow just seems out of place to me.

Thanks guys.   :-* It will be a bit, because I have accompanying furniture. :)

Ooer, can you imagine that gorgeous bed with a black wood frame and a bright white and red design on the quilt? It would be so nommable!

Black, with red, purple and emerald green is the aim.  This is currently being worked on.  :)

I could go with the comfortable and restful, but expensive? I usually start off my simmies dirt poor, because of how easy it is to make money in The Sims. How about in the middle and just have it average priced?

Moderately priced - it's not going to be $10,000 but it will have high comfortability - not cheap as such but not wildly expensive. I think what neriana wants is not the old trick of getting it down to the bottom of the catalogue by pricing it at $20, so you see my bed first. I never do that anyway - gets things gunked up.  ;)

At this point in the model, map it - because it's not going to be a different texture ruffle to ruffle, and this will make your life easier later.

Sorry, a little off topic, but I wanted to thank you for pointing this out.  I've spent countless hours trying to ever-so-carefully stack UV maps of identical pieces of a mesh so they would all share the same area of the texture, when all along I could have just mapped the first bugger and duplicated it as many times as needed.  I wish this trick would have been pointed out to me eight months ago.  It probably was and I just didn't notice - I'm not the most observant nut in the sack, after all.   ::)

I too do that - or used to - but then I figured out how EA did it - they have compromised meshing which makes their lives easier. So I copied. :D And this time I was thinking about how many groups I'd end up with. :P You're welcome.

Lol!  That's how I figured it out, too.   :D  Only that was, maybe, a one and a half months ago when I started messing with Maxis meshes in depth and using pieces of them with the accompanied texture, and by then I had already built many, many meshes in Blender that were a nightmare to map.  There was much face palming going on when I realized how much less work was involved doing it the Maxis way.  They actually got it right this time!  Hopefully many newbie meshers out here will read your tutorial and get a better start than we did. 

By the way, your bed is very pretty.  I would totally om nom nom that for my simmies.   :)

In agreement with Deelink about the black frame color option. But IRL, I think the bed would be modestly pricey. Unless Ikea is holding out on us for stuff like that bed.

Actually my bed is similar and I spent maybe $400 dollars on the blankets, pillows, sheets, a wicker basket set, and a matching lamp. The frame and mattresses would probably be 2-3 grand. But the frame and mattresses were presents from my boyfriends parents, so it could be more than that.

Moderately priced - it's not going to be $10,000 but it will have high comfortability - not cheap as such but not wildly expensive. I think what neriana wants is not the old trick of getting it down to the bottom of the catalogue by pricing it at $20, so you see my bed first. I never do that anyway - gets things gunked up.  ;)

Awesome. Thank you.  :) I never really understood why people liked that trick? Yes it made finding things easier, but eventually everything will be priced dirt poor and it's just as hard to find it at the bottom/top as it was when it was mixed in the catalog.

Thanks, I'll let you know when they are up!

 ;D My daughter is the same way, LOL.

I felt like I was transported back to age 14 when I saw the movie. I liked it. I can't help it.

He will always be Cederic Diggory to me.

It's really funny, my daughter is a huge Harry Potter fan, but she seems to be able to ignore the fact that Robert Pattinson was also Cedric Diggory. I think picturing him as Cedric Doggory is common for most people. He made a good vampire in the movie, though, IMO.

Wow, love the house. How long did it take to make?

And one question, if you upload them, will there be a face on shot of the Edward sim? Very clever to use that hair with him, I've seen other sims around and they just use whatever poofy hair they can find. But I do think that one is closest to his natural style.

Thanks. Wow, in between dealing with Securom problems and other issues with my game, it was on and off for days. I'd say a two to three hours total, with making the custom wallcoverings, etc.

I will be uploading him, and will include a face on shot. I have more screenshots to take, but here's a full face view...

It's not a peggy hair, but I can't remember whose at the moment. It is a pay hair. I'll double check and let you know. I looked high and low to find hair that was similar to Edward Cullen's in the movie. That one was by far the closest.

No gaps. Another clue it's not a peggy hair.

Edit to add I'm wrong. It's a Peggy Hair. But, fortunately it's one of the better ones.  ;)

Cala, I have that one, and tried it...doesn't look as comparable to the style in the movie as one might think from the preview shots on MTS2. I thought it was the one as well, but after seeing it in bodyshop...nope. Thank you, though! I am always on the lookout for the non-pay stuff. Frankly, the free stuff has always looked better to me most of the time. But, if deelink wants to try it, nothing saying it can't be switched out after download, huh?

Nice bed, btw. I'm stalking your site.  :)

Ah, I see. Well, I guess for this pirate it's not so much a nopaycraprule. I am choosy, though. If that peggy hair had the gaps that are frequently seen on peggy hair I'd have used the other one regardless of whether it was the most similar style or not. What I really need to do is learn to mesh. That's next on my things to do list. I started learning it a couple years ago and then took a long break from sims. I'm about ready to jump back in on it. I just want certain things and can't find them...so  I'ma gonna make stuffs and offer those to anyone...to use, copy, mangle, or do better with than I did. LOL

All I need now is more hours in my day. *sigh*

I'm guessing y'all don't have tween-age girls? 'Cause that's the only reason I know about it. Also, I had to google Cederic Diggory, so now who's the one who should get out more?

I'm in the boat with Ry. It's a vampire movie. And has been causing people to get tattoos of "Twilight" all over the place. I don't even think the movie has come out yet.

It's quite possible SAU has a similar one. Peggy has a tendency to look like other creators. (Free vs. Pay thread anyone?)

Yeah, the movie's out. I know because my 14 y.o. dragged me out at midnight a couple weeks ago to see it. It's a good thing the movie didn't suck.

You know, I thought I had gotten it from SAU, but I checked with clean pack installer, and it's Peggy hair.  ??? I dunno, it works, and that's what matters to me at the moment.  ;)

I have so many WTF moments I've almost gotten used to them, in sims and irl. LOL

I think the movie is worth seeing in the theatres, unless you have a large screen TV at home. But, there are a lot of movies I wait for until they come out on DVD. Your bf may think it's a stupid movie, however. It's kind of a teenage chick flick, if that makes any sense.

Now, I've got to get started on Bella and the rest of the characters. Wish me luck in finding some good non-Peggy hair for those sims!

The hair sure is tempting but I'd rather have a free alternative. Plus I have a feeling the other shades are going to be ghastly, unless someone at GoS has recoloured it.  :D

They normally are. I think I read on GOS somewhere about that particular hair. About how it's poly heavy for being short, but not as bad as her others.

It has been recolored on GOS, and somewhere else did it in nouk colors.

I believe you need to register, but I'm not sure. They will only have those hairs temporarily until her site comes back.

It's fine mustluv. You only need 10 posts to see their sharing section. To see the forum entirely, I think only requires registration.

Are you sure there is still a 10 post requirement to see the sharing section?  I thought they changed that policy.

In 'The Meeting Room', in the thread Post Counts, blessedagain06 says "the posting rule is now gone".  But it's still being enforced?  That doesn't make sense.

As far as I know,Ferris has lifted the 10 post count rule for the time being,if people start getting harrassed from MediaFire,etc. she may reintroduce again.

Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: RedSeawench on 2008 December 10, 13:13:54
We discussed it and the majority of us were getting tired of all the spam we were getting from everyone trying to get their 10 posts just to get to the "special" downloads.Ferris was'nt sure about doing it at the begining(she did'nt want members losing their accounts from MediaFire etc. in case thet were reported)she has lifted the post limit for now,but if members start losing their sharing accounts she will re-inforce it.Hopefully she won't have to as we still don't share TSR files,we just send them over here  ;)

I'd probably download it if it didn't use paysite crap. :) Other than that, it's not eyeblindingly bright - it's softened quite a bit. :)

What's in it that's from a paysite?
It's Simply styling meshes. Oh, the curtains? From XM?
I can find a different mesh for the curtains.
Thanks guys. I really appreciate the comments. Glad to know it's not causing need for eye bleach.  :D

Holy Simoly chair? LOL
Now I'm studying it trying to figure out which ones you're talking about Cala...lol.

Well I could always find free meshes and re-do it. I've been planning on doing another hippie bedroom set, anyways.

I like it.  It's not exactly my tastes, but as a hippy bedroom, it works great.  I'd put it up for downloading.  There are a lot of folks out there who have '70s themed houses and this would be absolutely perfect.

If you wanted to be simple and easy about curtains/bed stuff, you could just make a normal bedding recolour with that nifty bedspread texture - then you'd have matching curtains if you used my maxis match curtains.

And I love the whole set.  I love hippy stuff - I think I get to be a hippy because my mom wasn't one in the 60s....silly mom.

Oui! Well then I guess I was wrong about the 10 posts. Shows how much time I spent in their "Favorite room" thread and how much time I spend reading.  :D

Ry, I like the set. But in the first picture, maybe it's the angle, but it doesn't look like the pattern matches up on the lamp shade. I'm not sure if that's intentional though.

Technically, this isn't something I've made. But this is the third person I've found to make the octopussy themed jewelry, and my favorite so far.

Oh yes!  ^_^ Did you hear about Otto the octopus in Germany? He's bored because the aquarium is closed for the winter, so he has been occupying himself by short-circuiting the light above his tank by squirting water at it and juggling the hermit the crabs. I love octopusessesses.

That made me smile.

All meshes are included along with more pictures.
As for the lamp You're right. It doesn't line up and I didn't even notice.  :-[ We can turn that part to the back, right?  :D

Cala and the others who don't use any pay meshes, I'm going to make another hippie set just for you guys. If you have any favorite meshes, give me a heads up. It won't be exactly the same, but I'll try to pull the same textures if I can.

And thank you guys for the constructive criticism. I tend to be more harsh on my own stuff and think no one else would like it. It helps to know that some people do. LOL
Alright. Thanks again, guys!

I love your set, but yeah, I'm one of those who'd prefer to keep paystuff out of my folders.

And other than wanting to have an actual maxis bedding texture, I'm good.  With me and my working on making all my cloth meshes call to that file, I could really give it a work out. :)

And if the current set is any indication, I'm sure it will look perfect no matter what way you put it together.

Post by: Quinctia on 2008 December 12, 08:11:35
I would like some feedback on some hair retexturing I'm doing.

Seems like my handpainting style fits "best" with the whole Maxis match thing, and I have been seeing a lot of textures about that claim to be Maxisy without really being much besides bright filter-fucking.  (Filter-fucking has its places, but those places are usually not as the foundation of anything.)  So I figured I'd do a couple retexts of some older hairs that needed some sort of retexturing anyway.

This is XM 25, and I think I'm nearly done with it.  I want to make the ends of the alpha a little less blunt, but I did make the alpha chunkier to mesh with the Maxisy style.
(http://pics.livejournal.com/rikkulidea/pic/0003a9ky.jpg)

(http://pics.livejournal.com/rikkulidea/pic/00039t78.jpg)

The questions for this one are simple.  Is the hair clip okay?  And do you agree with me on being done except for tweaking the alpha?  XD

The next one is an older free mesh of Gappy's that I've always had an inexplicable fondness for.  However, I realize now why there haven't really been any good attempts at retexturing it.  The mapping stretches the texture.
(http://pics.livejournal.com/rikkulidea/pic/0003d654.jpg)

(http://pics.livejournal.com/rikkulidea/pic/0003cpes.jpg)

I plan to chunk out the alpha a bit if I do more with the hair.  My question is is the texture already too crunchy with the stretching, or is it tolerable?  And then I'm again not 100% sure on the accessory, with both of these I slapped on a stock texture I already had just to make it look finished enough to go looking for advice!


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: oolongteadrinker on 2008 December 12, 15:51:23
I'm no expert on texturing, but maybe the blorp tool will help fit the texture in different areas without making it look too pixelized?

They look nice as they are. I'd call them good and finished.  but if you want to tweak them more, that's obviously your choice.


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: Missbonbon on 2008 December 12, 16:04:41
Thank you Oolong.  :)

Quinctia, the textures seem nice, but seem a little flat. Maybe the low lights that define the strands of the hair need to be a little bit darker. Kinda like these:

http://pics.livejournal.com/aeliaa/pic/000081e8

The first hair I don't really see anything to improve on, but the second hair, I don't think the texture is to crunchy, so maybe defining the texture a bit more will help it, because some parts do look a little blurry. But again, you said that could be the bad mapping. And I do love the hairband.


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: oolongteadrinker on 2008 December 12, 16:26:50
How many polys are they, btw? Now that I think of it, isn't there a website that keeps track of polys of paysite stuff?


Title: Re: Look at what I made and om nom nom it! (Post your creations pt. 2)
Post by: Quinctia on 2008 December 12, 18:34:52
I've got the highlights and stuff on a separate layer, so I can definitely tweak that.  I've always been really subtle with shading and all that, I always worry that it looks excessive and then it doesn't.

The bun hair, it's perhaps a little hard to tell, but it's painted in the right direction and everything to fit the mesh, it just got stretched.  In the texture, I painted it about as fine as the texture on the bangs.  :/

Oolong, I don't know the polys of the hairs offhand, but as they're both kind old, I don't think they're too high.

I don't know a thing about texturing & such, but I like the way they look...especially the first one.  I also really like the accessories...again the 1st especially because I like the small clip.

I would just darken the low lights by just a tad though. They aren't to far off, but if they were darker it would define your highlights better, define the strands better, and give the hair a bit more of a 3-d look. I'm sure if your questioning how dark it should go, just post some picture like here and GOS and some other places to get multiple opinions.  :)

And about the bun, when you put it that way, I can definitely tell the stretching. I wouldn't know how to fix that, unless the hair needs remapping, which would suck to do majorly.

She's purty.  :) I have a weird thing with sim noses. I like my sim's nose to be defined, whether it's contour, or with freckles or whatever. With that, I'm wondering if her nose is makeup or the skintone itself?

Overlays, and a lot of fiddling in Bodyshop for the right shape and contours. It wasn't the skintone. I worked a lot on it, lol.

Got the hairs up!  (And I did tweak the textures like was suggested, but I have a feeling I could've done it a bit more.  Oh how I love my subtlety, even when it isn't practical...)

No, I haven't been influenced by GoS, why do you say that? XD  I had a feeling they would appreciate the neon over there, and I'm fond of making blue recolors I'll never use, so a few more on top of that was nothing.

...I also love the way the preview shots came out.  I discovered the effect with the lights and that wallpaper completely by accident!

:D I've been finding myself drawn to certain colours too.  I think they look lovely Quinctia. I like the ends of that long hair - very nice and clear.

They turned out lovely Quinctia! I think your tweaking on the textures turned out perfectly as well! I nommed them from MTS2 as soon as I got home. About the different hair colors, my custom hair bin has over a 100 different streaked and dyed sim hair styles. Non of which I use, but all of which I have an odd fondness for. I always keep telling myself that one day I will dye my hair dark brown, with faint red or pink streaks. Needless to say my goal has yet to be accomplished.

Trotting myself over to MTS2 to grab these goodies now! This is just one of the reasons you are in my 'favorites'.

ETA: Wow...just went to grab the mesh from XM...your version is a HUGE improvement (may be why I didn't already have this hair in my game) So thanks again!
        also btw, I am flamingo57 on MTS2.

Thanks!  I am hoping to do some more, I may stray from free meshes, but I post things on GoS a bit, so I'd be posting them just there if I did that.  There's some old Raon meshes I deleted because the textures were just that bad, for instance, that I may revisit.

I'm really digging the painting thing lately.  I think it takes me less time to paint a texture than the couple of times I attempted to use filters to make a nice straight texture.  Not to say I don't ever use a little bit of light filtering on top of the finished product, but that's a little different. ;)

I'm horrible with custom colors, myself.  I love blue.  I love making blue hair.  I never put it on anyone.  Since I am SO big into the genetic aspect when I play my legacy families, I don't like to give them anything with crazy colors if it isn't streaks or something on top of their natural hair color, so I remember their real hair color.  In fact, I just received a Secret Santa gift that was blue-dipped natural colors of a cute hair, which really tickled me because I dyed the bottom of my hair blue once!  XD

Perhaps you guys would like to give me some inspiration regarding what kind of roof I should put on this new sim dwelling I'm making?
(http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b33/nVoxhewson/rundownhouse.jpg)
I'm nowhere near done, as evidenced by the lack of windows, but I don't know at all what to do with the top.
In return for advice, I will put it on Mediafire when done, along with the girls' undies/pjs I made a while back.  ;D

Hmmm. You could make the roof like you made the deck, but instead of the fence, use the mini-fence, or or trim, or whatever it's called from this set at MTS2 (http://www.modthesims2.com/download.php?t=307310). Undies, you say?  :D

I think a roof in this style would look nice:

Your house just reminds me of the old gothic feel. As if there should be dead bodies strewn about inside with paint chippings and carvings in the walls of "Red Rum."

Oooh, that's a pretty roof, MissB. I likey. I've noticed that a lot of the houses I build these days just aren't fun unless they look like they've been around for two hundred years. My single-mother zombie might not be so angry if her bathroom wasn't always full of rust, her mattress wasn't covered in blood, and she could afford some new appliances once in a while.

 :D The houses I build always turn out the same. I try to go for different looks, but they always end up kinda "chic." Same thing with my sims. Like I said earlier, my custom hair bin is full of streaked hair, and once I even made a sim with the streaked hair and multi colored make up. She was very pretty, but something inside of me urged for non-streaked hair. None the less, that sim actually ended up turning into Lele.

Both of my grandmothers have passed, and now I have one left on my dad's side. My dad's biological mother though, bless her heart, was the most awesome person I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. She had no qualms about saying what was on her mind, and if you didn't like it, she didn't care. You knew she liked you though if she invited you over for dinner. She always cooked the best food, and tons of it.

Perfect! That kind of roof would go along with the rest of the neighborhood as well, which is all abandoned factories and deteriorating houses and resteraunts.
Now I can finish adding more windows and the like.  :P

Oh my, she is adorable! I love the shape of her nose and lips. I think she looks pretty unique. She looks like a real girl.  ;D

That's a really nice thing for a man wearing a pink (or purple- depends) thong to say.   :P

Crunk she is very pretty. :) I'm with heartless that her nose and lips are very cute. For the sake of breeding though, you might want to fatten up her cheeks a tad. I've notice all my slender faced sims give out horrid babies.

Why yes, of course! :P

She seems to breed ok, but I'll see what I can get fattening her up a bit.  ;D

Those problems occur in real life, too. Your pointy-chinned, tiny-jawed people turn out not to have enough actual space for their TEETH.

Tell me about it - got to get five teeth pulled, four surgically, because I've got a narrow-ish jaw, even if my face is an oval and not at all thin.
