Give it a try. It is quite simple, and it feels really good to make some content.

I can't open Home Crafter. Everytime I click on it, nothing happens and two other files appear. What's wrong? I tried to uninstall it and reinstall it but it does the same thing.

i tried downloading HomeCrafter but when i try to Load it nevers loads or even pops up .Any advice?

Just leave it for a while. Having most eps and sps slows the load time. You could also move your entire downloads folder to your desktop temporarily, just before you start homecrafter. Then place it back where it belongs when your have closed homecrafter.

I have downloaded Homecrafter but for some reason it will not open whatsoever. What should I do?

Click the homecrafter icon, then leave it for a few minutes, as it may take a long time to load.

Is there any way possible to do these kind of things without Photoshop or Gimp or... Others. Can't i just use paint?

Gimp? Photoshop? What the... What does that mean,, You know your a newbie when,,,

#259 Old 4th Jan 2009 at 8:18 AM
Yes, but, only VERY basic stuff. And by basic I mean like one solid colour for the whole thing. You really should use a proper program.Gimp and Paint.net are very good, and they both cost nothing.

Okay, let's try this again, louder.

Please do not post in this thread regarding Homecrafter issues!

This thread is just for questions relating to doing this tutorial. If you have problems with Homecrafter, this is not the right place. Links have been posted previously in this thread regarding issues with Homecrafter. Follow them and do what they say.

winniedory - Please actually read the info in the tutorial. MS Paint -won't- do what is detailed in this tutorial. You are given several options, including plenty of free ones, to use, and the editing part of the tutorial is shown using a free editor as well as Photoshop.

Hi!
Thanks for the tut (didn't remember to thank when making my first walls and floors with a help of this tut).
Now I'm asking if it's possible to make only half reflective walls? I'm making kitchen walls where is a part of wallpaper covered with glass above the kitchen counter level and below the upper cabinet level. Other wise the wallpaper won't need the "glass cover" and could be normal. Is it possible to implement that?

While HomeCrafter is open and I'm trying to make a new wall paint (I'm stuck on step 4 for that part), my paint looks all white and ugly! What do I do to fix this?
EDIT: When I try to make HomeCrafter use one of my wall textures, it's just all black... I even replaced the template with my own texture, but it turned black, too! Only a small portion of the baseboard and crown moulding appeared, along with the blackness.

I'm stumped.......I've checked and double checked what I did and I have gone through all the steps outlined. I have had no problem creating the items, and then importing them to the game. My propblem is that after I go through all the steps, the files do not show up in my My Documents/EA Games/The Sims 2/Downloads folder. I do have items I downloaded from others and they work fine. Any suggestions on what the problem may be?

Would be interesting to put the link to the Sims 2 WTF (Wall, Terrain and Floor) Editor @ DJS Sims. Description: [...] batch rename all the Walls, Terrain Paints, and Floors in any given directory so that they will have the same filename as their internal name.

Pratical and more easy than remane one by one im SimPE.

Okay and now I have another problem.. I follow the tutorial to a tee and everything looks great. When I try to import it gives the message "There is not enough disk space to export the selected textures." What exactly does this mean and how can I fix it so I can make my wallpaper? [Sorry I don't know if this is a homecrafter issue, or a newbie issue on my part. Thanks!]

Is it possible for a tutorial on how to make reflective floor and wall tiles?
I saw somewhere someone knows how to make them and I am all about learning cool new tricks to do with my photoshop, so is there any way you can email me and let me know if this is a possibility?
Thanks, James

Default Importing errors
i had this same issue when I tried to install the HCP the first time, apparently the program doesn't support certain aspects of newer games but have no fear they figured out how to do it.
Go to Game Help on this site and look up Home Crafter Plus help, follow that to the Tee and it will be okay, it fixed the issue for me in a jiffy. That is when I decided to do it the right way after 3 weeks and 100 wrong tries.
Good luck!!

hey thanks for the link to the inspiration gallery!! cool stuff there.

I really would like to know how to do reflective floor tiles but I can't find any info out there on how to create them, I am looking to make something with a wooden or marbled feel to it, it has to be better than that flat white and black checkerboard that came with the game.
Can someone help me please?
