You're not really supposed to do that...the moderators were talking about "I'm first!" and stuff...
Anyways, cool recolour? How'd you do it? :insane:

Thank you so much for this!

If you're taking requests, could you make one that says "ON AIR" and/or "RECORDING"?

Thanks!

These are great!! ...Thank you for doing the recolour requests :baloons: .

TIP: If you want to make a longer message (more words) then...

1. Create your recolour package using Object Workshop in SimPE (not the Wizard)

2. Make a texture file 1024 x 1024

3. Make your .gif file with 128 cells (each one is still 256 x32)

4. Paste into your new texture file like this

1 2 3 4
5 6 7 8 etc.,

5. Right click on the original 512 x512 texture file and choose Build DXT**, selecting your new bigger texture file, and increase the Mip Map level to 11

6. Right click the newly imported (bigger) texture and click 'Update All Sizes'. Click Commit

7. Open the Material Definition file and change the stdMatTextureCoordAnimNumTiles value to 4.000000,32.000000 and click 'commit'

8. Save the package



** If this option is 'greyed out' then you need to install the DDS Utilities from HERE


Once again...thanks for doing these request!! :baloons:

These are awesome but the halfprice zip contains the live band recolour and not the half price.

Never try to teach a pig to sing. It wastes your time and annoys the pig.

Because I'm still making them from requests, I'd have to change that All-rar/zip all the time, so it's probably not practical at the moment. People probably don't want ALL of them anyways, so it's best to just split them up and leave them as it is, but I'll see what happens Thanks for the suggestion though

Yep, these ARE wicked cool! However, this is not my mesh, it's all thanks to Boblishman and friends. I just whipped up some blinkies and added them on, it's the base object that's REALLY amazing! :D
Oh, and don't forget to thank him in his original mesh post if you like them!
