View Full Version : bodyshop shape override
9th Jul 2007, 08:59 PM
Is there a way to change the default sim shape wich appears in accesoires?
I made a toenailpaint accesory for my sexyfeet mesh but the nails are covered with the default maxis feet :(
I know i can zoom into the feet but its not wat i want :)

I think there is a way that you can make a custom graphic for your accessories - I believe that Snowstorm did that to make her cute toddler slippers show up with pictures of them in accessories.
Uhm yes try this: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=194145

blurr, you do realize that what displays in bodyshop has no bearing at all about what goes on in game - what is the worry about making something show up in bodyshop? The thumbnails being recognizable in game and such seem to be much more of an issue.
If you're doing the nails as an accessory, are you providing folks with replacement meshes for all the outfits that you're making the nails work for? It seems to me that the nails as an accessory is going to cause more logistical problems than if they were just painted with custom outfits. (problem being that the user can't control when an accessory is worn or not, it has to be by outfit category)

I updated my older alpha and multimeshes(a mesh with more then one pair of shoes and Maxis barefoot) with the feet as shown in the pic above.
The feet themself have nails and can be textured on the skintonefiles or the outfit.
But already excisting outfits end up with the skintone on the nails wich wasn't nice , thats why i made the accesory, its a extra set of nails positioned on top of the original ones in a seperate mesh.
So peeps dont have to redo their recolor, they simply pick the accesoire and the toes are textured.
I assigned the accesoire to showerproof/PJ/undie/and swimwear as those use the feet.
the rest you know, maxis feet hided the nails, so peeps cant see wat there doing when recoloring the accesoire as that got them even more excited.....
