I have a question regarding this thread, and without spending too much time digging I was hoping someone could answer a single question for me. I followed the tutorial and it worked perfectly **thanks**, my remaining question is now that my sim has been remodeled do I need to keep my template sim in the BIN or can I delete that Sim since I only used it as a template.
what a fantiastic tutorial. thatnk you for taking the time to go into such detail. i'm a newbie to simsPE and have been wanting to change the looks of my NPCs forever. question, is it necessary to use the original NPCs original clothing and can it be changed? ei: a victorian maid
I was wondering ig there is a way to change eye color with SimPe???
Can you help...???
I use TS2 Enhancer to change eye color, skin tone, and some other things that SimPE can't do on the fly. It will cost you a few bucks, but to me it's worth it. I've used this program long before there ever was a SimPE, and have bought every pay update since.
You can use it free for 48-hours, but after that it turns into a pumpkin until you buy an unlock code. Use the "Genetics (DNA)" button to change your eye color, skin tone, etc.
Make sure you keep your original email/reciept after purchase. You'll need it in the future for version updates that require an additional fee, or if you do a system format and need an unlock code to reinstall the software you originally purchased. If the system ID changes (it will after doing a hard drive reformat/OS reload) your original unlock code will no longer work.
Hope that helps you.
You'll like the program, I'm sure. It comes in handy when you really need it. It also saves some unnessesary aggrevation, and in my case, some choice 4-letter words.
Does anyone have any additional tutorials, information or hacks that can help? Hopefully if I keep staring at the tutorial, it will eventually make sense and I'll replace my NPC's. I'd love to hear from someone who has done this successfully with the details of how.
ETA: Option #4 actually worked! Now I'm ever so slowly redoing the NPC's in more appropriate garb for my medieval hood.
BTW: You can change eye color in SimPE with the sim surgery tool. It's even easier is to get contacts and use those.
Be warned, the lack of support and general rudeness on the part of the Sims 2 Enhancer creator is legendary. It is about $20 to buy it, so you should know that before you plunk down the money.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
dang it, I wish SimPE would respond!!! It keeps "not responding", so I can't do this tutorial. I tried, like, 3 times already or whatever, but after it loads Veronaville, it keeps saying PLEASE WAIT... and it says that FOREVER!
I've been looking for a beginner friendly NPC tutorial since I just broke down and decided to try my hand at SimPE, luckily, I found this super easy to understand tutorial!
I've been having an issue though....
I follow all your steps, but once I close Sims 2 and open up SimPE....
and my newly created sim doesn't show up in the Sims Surgery window anywhere. When I open back up Sims or even go to a house then back out to a neighborhood, my newly created sim is gone.
I've tried this a few times to the same results, even if i save my game-the sim dissapears from the bin.
Is the fact that I can't change their last name from "N" without the debugging being deactivated, or is that a normal thing? I didn't see that mentioned.
I haven't seen anyone else have this issue?
Thanks so much for any input!
When I open up my custom neighboorhood and go on sim surgery there are no sims showing up.
I tested it with the standard neighboorhood and there it works, the sims in the neighboorhood show up.
Has anyone solved this problem before or has an idea what's the reason for that?
I have tried to change the looks and the clothing for my professors in my university, and when I go into the game, they are wearing the teacher uniform and not the clothes I picked out for them to wear. Do you have any idea on how to change this? I would really appreciate it if you could find a way, thanks.
