Steps 18 to 30 of Part 2 have been finished. They cover matching your mesh with an export, deleting the export, and importing the GMDC.

if u wish u can use 3DStudio ..
u'll find tons of tutorial about modelling and texturing in 3DSmax.

When your object is done and the texture is correct, export your mesh as 3DS file.
you could import it in wings3D or milkshape is the same..
i suggest to import the original mesh (exported from simPe)
and then the .3ds file, so you'll have the 2 mesh.. scale the new one and
place exactly where the original is.. then delete the old one and export your job as .obj (Wavefront / maya) file.

at least u can import the obj file in the .package with simpe.. as numenor as well explaned...

u can also replace a single mesh, on the attached immage u can see
my .obj file have the all mesh that compose the Sims2Object but in this case i import just a single mesh to replace the orginal one called "surfaces".
All the other mesh are set as "Action:Nothing" and they remain as they are.
that's a realy cool/usefull option

that's all and that's how i build my stuff

Wow, thanks for the tutorial! I had just begun to figure out Milkshape when my trial expired.... While I'm waiting for part 2, I'll get used to Wings 3D So, are we supposed to do the UVMapping on our own, or is it part of part 2? I could figure it out using UVMapper Classic on my own, but will follow a tutorial if it is given. :D

If you ever have the time, can you make a hair tutorial? I'm lost on hair meshing for Wings 3D. But of course, only if you have time. ^^; I'm going to try out this tutorial. Hopefully object meshing is easier than clothes and hair meshing.

Oh, btw, the tutorial is really good- I can understand it even though I suck at understanding things. ^^

I want to take and object that is in the game and customize it how do I export the object from sims 2 so that it can be imported into 3dmax or wings3d. Is there and unpacker that i need to use, I don't seem to know where to look for the objects in the game to customize. Also I havn't seen any threeds that explain how to make the object interactable in the game like computer, ect. Can someone please help.

I know this may sound very noobish but I don't know where to download Wings 3D. I'm at the site, but I can't find the link to download the actual Wings 3D. I thought I found it at the top left box labeled 'news' under 'Latest Stable Rel: 0.98.29b' but once I got it on my computer, I can't open the file.

Do I need anything to run wings? If so, can you please link it to me?

Please help me out... I really want to mesh... :weep:


EDIT: YAY! I found the download page, which happened to be called 'download page'. :dunce: So nevermind!

Back it up!

'Also I havn't seen any threeds that explain how to make the object interactable in the game like computer, ect.' - Start with something easier. This is way out of your region.

You need SimPE to customize an object. Follow my tutorial, but change it, like clone the object you want to customize instead of the end table.

I followed the whole tutorial all the way up to 44 in part II.But I don't have a texture file for some reason. I save and SimPE .44 ask if I want to commit? Should I commit or say no?

Yes you should commit. Commit means save.

It seems there is no need for texturing in this tutorial. If in your case there is, you texture the UV Map and in the Texture File section import that BMP. We are done Part 2!


By 'in your case', I mean if you are making an object other than this object, like if I'm making a bed, I would modify this tutorial for a bed.
