Default SimPE and it's image sizes
So I was trying to export some textures for my conversion to the sims 3, as I noticed something.



As you can see in SimPE it says the size is '256x256' but when I export it, there is only a 64x64 texture size, which is usually the size of a thumbnail in the sims 3. I'm not sure if the sims 2 resizes the texture that's 64x64 to 256x256 in-game, but something tells me there is something missing here.

Is there a way to either recover the actual 256x256 size or is this just how the game copes with it's textures?

The lifo's in the pictures are just some shadow map looking ones. But I did found the LIFO files in Object07. Though, are these like data files or can't SimPE read them? I downloaded the DDS plugin that was needed. Is there a way to export them as a image file?

As long as you're on the LIFO resource, you should be able to just click "export" - if you're not using SimPE to do anything but extract textures/meshes/etc I'm not sure the Nvidia plug-in is even needed.

Btw, the textures you want are in Objects8, not Objects7.

Got it! Apparently I didn't see the export function because SimPE hid the Plugin viewer, so I had to open that window again. Thanks! That was the file I needed! ^-^

Someone please help--.SimPe won't show a plug-in view of any objects I have made several items for my game but since it won't show in the plug-in view, it won't show up in my game. I never had any problems before when I was meshing for SapphireSims2. But I stopped meshing for several years and lost the SimPE that I had So if anyone knows how to get my SimPE plug-in window to show my objects, I would be forever grateful!!! Peggy
