THANKS THIS IS GREAT

A question about what you all prefer:

I'm making a bedroom out of the Melaka Living set I was shamelessly bragging about above. And I've run into a same-old same-old problem with the beds. There can only be two recolorable subsets and one of them has to be the bedding - at least if you want to be able to use all your custom beddings on it. But apart from the bedding I have another *two* different parts that I would like to be separately recolorable, and I'd like to hear suggestions about to how to solve this.

A picture of the first version of the double bed to make it easier to explain. The different parts are the bedding, the bedframe and the canopies.



There are three options:

A) Make the bedframe and the bedding in one file - both recolorable. Then make the canopies as another file that you'd have to put on separately in your game.

B) Make the bedframe and the canopies in one file - both recolorable. Then make the bedding as another file that you'd have to put on separately in your game.

C) Make only one file where the bedding and the canopies are joined in a subset (the bedframe would be the other subset). This would mean that you cant use all your custom beddings for this bed, but only the ones I make for it.

Id appreciate knowing which option would youd all prefer. Thanks in advance for any input.  Smiley

What I would do is make the canopy separately but repository the hangings subset repository to the bed so that bedding recolors would show up on the canopy if that is possible.

Hmmm. I need to see if that is possible. Standard custom bedding has to fit a specific template, and I'm not sure the canopy patterns would fit into it. But it's a really good suggestion and I'll try and see if it can work.

In the meantime, any other preferences?

Frame and bedding as normal Maxis beds are.   Make the canopy separate with those lovely textures.  Or!!!  And !?!?  Slave the canopy to Jonesi's bed blanket. 

Maxis bedding doesn't always look right.  You might be able to slave it to the single portion of the bedding and have it mirrored in each "strip".  But it won't line up nicely with all of them.

I'd also prefer the canopy as a seperate object, but not slaved to maxis bedding. Just simply recolourable.

Okay, cool. Bedframe and bedding will make up the bed. Canopy will be separate.

HugeLunatic, I think you're right that slaving it to the bedding won't look good. Or at least the canopy might look okay, but the resulting bedding would look weird. Jonesi's bedblanket is a good idea, but after taking a quick look at the texture map, I don't think it would work either. The blanket is mapped in a square whereas the canopy is an oblong, and I'm not sure I can stretch it that much without loosing detail. Will try, though.

Which also raises another question. Should I make a new 'Master' for the bedroom set, or should I just slave everything to the existing living set?
(ETA: That problem has just solved itself. None of the texture maps from the first set fit the need of the bedroom, so I have to make a new master).

Many thanks for your input. I definitely appreciate it.

Not a problem- I am pretty sure that Snarky's stuff is okay to use in lots as long as they are not going on a paysite (esp TSR) or the Exchange. He has been around a bit lately, you might try pm'ing him about it since he has not uploaded his creator profile at Sailfinsims yet.
Feel free to use what you want in your lots, TapThatBooty.

I tried to pm you yesterday to tell you as much, but your inbox is full. Glad to know you're getting some use from that set. Incidentally, taking the blanket off that Maxis sofa was one of the prime motivators for me learning how to use Blender.

(thanks, dstar)

Thank you both of you.

Snarky, I have to say that I love all your stuff. You were actually one of the first creators I set out to get all the replacements for after my computer died. Everything you have made has been really gorgeous and fits in with all the Maxis stuff (not everyone likes Maxis' style, but I loved it). Anyhoo, before I write you a big massive essay on how awesome you and your stuff is, I'll stop  Smiley.

I'm going to download the age converted hairs and fire up the game for a session of building.

EDIT: Forgot more Baaaaa-ness.

Moune, your latest set is lovely and I would have to say that it is my favourite set you have done yet, the style and the colors are really nice. Excellent job.

I'm new at this whole creation thing, but I'm trying to learn. Figured I'd start out with something easy...well... comparatively easy Smiley  I simmed this Zodiac Collection based on the gorgeous works of Stephanie Pui-Mun Law.

http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=388152

While I'm on the subject of wall art for sims... and we are all on the subject of paysites (being as that is why we are here raising such a stink)... this set was inspired by something that really pisses me off. I wanted to make an example that shows how artwork is SUPPOSED to be credited.

Most of the art I've seen on pay sites have been blatantly stolen from the artist... and I'm not talking "the Masters" or public domain artwork... I'm talking about stolen from artists who are out there trying desperately not to starve!

Sure, occasionally, one may credit the artist, but I'm willing to wager none have actually bothered to contact the artist and ask permission to make a profit off THEIR hard work. I'm thinking... artists would kind of frown on the idea and I hate that these slackers take the hours and hours of REAL creativity... slap it in an in-game frame... and have the balls to charge people for it with NOTHING kicking back to the artist who actually created it. TSR loves to send their little cease and desist letters so much... I would LOVE DEARLY if their  little group of plageristic talent thieves their own letters from angry artists. Quid friggin pro friggin quo... right?

Stephanie is a friend of mine. She works really hard on her paintings and it's her livelihood. I *did* get permission to use her work and she is excited to have her collection featured on MTS. I'm not making anything off them... she might get a little web traffice... so it's win-win for her. I don't really claim any real creativity here. I just made sure they were proportional, the colors translated well, and her links and name was all over the descriptions... y'know... did the grunt work.

So anyway... feel free to check the wall hanging collection out and point and laugh...whatever. Just be gentle. It's my first time... and it's friggin' FREE... so...   Kiss ma booty!  Grin

I think they look very lovely, PirateKitty! She does great work. I'm looking forward to that calendar. (omnomnom)

I would totally download this but don't have TS3. Will you be making them for TS2?

The paintings look great. Your friend is very talented. I definitely agree with you too.


And I would have downloaded, but I also don't have TS3.  Tongue

Was aiming for the quote button and accidentally hit the thanks button... LOL... loved the look I got from my other coworkers at the bleat that ensued! Note: Those buttons are way too close together for old kitties! Cheesy

Anyway, no, I probably won't be able to make them for TS2 due to the fact I no longer have the computer that housed it. I'm now running TS3 on a Mac Bootcamp partition and just don't have room for both :/  

I'd be more than happy to supply the jpgs to anyone who wishes to create them for TS2, though, providing they are just as careful with credits.

Edited to add...

I see there is now a "Zodiac Collection" on TSR using Boris Vallejo's work - no links or thank you or anything. Took my idea... took Boris' work. Is there nothing they won't plagiarize? (I would eyeroll but I know the answer to that...)

These are some recolors I did as a gift for my friend mimisouris. Hope you like them they are of Anna's Dora Bedroom The bed,bedding,side tables and mirror. I also did a recolor of billiejean's small decorative room divider.





If you guys are interested in these recolors you can grab the shinies here http://www.mimiscreationmall.com/BedroomPage4.html

The bedroom I was asking about above is done. In the end I did manage to make it a slave to the previous living set, which makes it take up very little space in your DL folder. Thanks again for all the useful input.

Gorgeous.  And I love how the canopy is separate.
