Title: Recolours of Elaine's Enchanted Picture (Television)

September 29, 2019 Update

I discovered yesterday that a texture mapping error had crept in to all seven wood texture recolours. This error caused the wood frames to contain two solid lines where there should have been a wood texture. My apologies. This update corrects these wood textures.

Incidentally, Elaine's Enchanted Picture: The Lady of Shalott was also updated today.


Purpose

The recent upgrade to Elaine's Enchanted Picture: The Lady of Shalott - a painting that functions as a high-end wall mounted television - allows the object to be completely recolourable. This project provides several frame and screen recolours for this custom object.

Elaine's Enchanted Picture costs §8050 and is found in the television section of the catalogue.



Description

I am happy that at long last the Enchanted Picture televison is fully recolourable. In support of this recent upgrade, this project contains ten Lady of Shalott themed pictures and two pictures associated with the default Odalisque and Young Women of Sparta combination frame. In addition, there are five variations on the Odalisque and Spartan frames, three plain metal frames and six wood frames.



Contents

1) Frame Recolours - Cherry Wood, Mahogany Wood, Maple Burl Wood, La Grande Odalisque Bronze, La Grande Odalisque Silver, Plain Bronze, Plain Gold, Plain Silver, Red Oak Wood, Santa Maria Wood, Sapele Wood, Spartan Bronze, Spartan Gold, Spartan Silver, Yellow Pine.

2) Picture Recolours - Sophie Anderson "Elaine", Anonymous "Lady of Shalott", Walter Crane "The Lady of Shalott", John Atkinson Grimshaw "Elaine" 1, John Atkinson Grimshaw "Elaine" 2, John Atkinson Grimshaw "The Lady of Shalott", Sidney Paget "Lancillotto ed Elena", Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres "La Grande Odalisque", Rose "Lady of Shalott", William Trego "The Lady of Shalott", John William Waterhouse "The Lady of Shalott", Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot "Young Women of Sparta".






Texture Credits

- the picture artwork is in the public domain, freely available at the Wikimedia Commons and The Athenaeum: Sophie Anderson "Elaine", Anonymous "Lady of Shalott", Walter Crane "The Lady of Shalott", John Atkinson Grimshaw "Elaine" 1, John Atkinson Grimshaw "Elaine" 2, John Atkinson Grimshaw "The Lady of Shalott", Sidney Paget "Lancillotto ed Elena", Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres "La Grande Odalisque", Rose, "Lady of Shalott", ‎William Trego "The Lady of Shalott", John William Waterhouse "The Lady of Shalott", Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot "Young Women of Sparta"

- the 19th century frame recolours are from Wikimedia Commons: Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres "La Grande Odalisque" and the Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot "Young Women of Sparta". The wooden and plain frames all use basegame textures, and the back of the picture frame is adapted from the back of the basegame "In the Beginning" painting.


Recolouring Hints

The aspect ratio for the Lady of Shalott television screen is 1.80, the same as the basegame "Soma 'Wall-Eye' Large Screen Flat-Panel Television". The default recolour size for the "screen" or picture subset of the Lady of Shalott is 256x512 pixels. When configuring your source texture, I suggest first scaling its width to 512 pixels wide by 284 pixels high. Then scale the height down to 256 pixels, while ensuring that "Maintain Aspect Ratio" option (or equivalent) is disabled. This will ensure that the picture will look undistorted when displayed in The Sims 2.
