Looks like you've got some inverted faces. Which mesh editor are you using?

Replacing the Talking Table probably means something went wrong with the GUIDs. Did you get new GUIDs for all the three GUIDs? And did you update MMATs with the main one? Open the MMAT (Material Definition) and see what the objectGUID line points to. If it's not the new main GUID you gave the object, click on that line in the MMAT and edit the value to be the same as the new main GUID, then Commit and Save.

Okay, thanks, I use Blender 3D. I don't normally use talking table, but the texture is so ugly, I really like it the way it was.

Oh, and I deleted the mesh I made because I thought it would set the Talking Table back to the way it was. Apparently Not/=. :insane:

the darkness of the table. when you zoom in it gets darker and darker the more you zoom in.

As for the GUID, most one-tile objects only have one GUID, so it sounds completely normal to me . When giving this object a new GUID, treat the one GUID as you did the main GUID with the dining table in the tutorial, and discard the information on the other GUIDs (meaning, you will have to update the MMATs with this one and only GUID).


Ok, I think I understand. I'll give it another shot. Thanks for the uvmapping link!

I thank you, and my llama thanks you

Default Now what?
The wonderful people who answer all of these questions have so much more patience than I think I would. Thank you so much!

Here is where I'm stuck right now. First, know this. In Milkshape I cannot regroup then rename or it crashes. I'm not sure if this is a big problem, because I don't think the name is important, but maybe I'm wrong.

Anyway, I've attached a picture of the Mesh Group Importer. I click the file, and then click "replace". The tutorial says that in the drop down menu underneath that I should find something of my own... but I don't. Why is this? Any clues?

Thanks again!

For the people with Blender and Wings 3D related problems, I will let someone else answer the meshing problems, since I'm not familiar enough with those programs .

labine, I'm sorry if I asked you already at some point, but which mesh program are you using again? Milkshape or something else?

amymil, what is the name of the group(s) when you export them from Milkshape? If you renamaed it to what I see on the screen, then everything looks fine to me. But you say you can't rename it to what it should be? Milkshape has a tendency to crash sometimes upon regrouping. I would try again and again, and maybe do something else first and then try regrouping again. It seems to be some kind of a Milkshape bug. If you keep having problems, upload both the object package and the mesh file as an attachment here and I'll take a look, I use Milkshape, as well.

I've attached a zip file. Hopefully you can figure it out. I've been working on this allllllllllllllll day, and now it is time for me to go to bed and have nightmares about milkshape and simPE...LOL!

Thank you so very much. I'm sure it's something very simple that I have overlooked.

By the way... I did get my milkshape to "regroup" and I named it milktut, but I still had an issue in the mesh importer.

TheSims2freak,
yup, that looks like it's inside out
this happens if you scale it too far (try staying zoomed in and keeping you 'scale line' long enough for more control)
it's probably easiest to just remesh the tabletop, since it's a reasonably simple shape
or you can just flip the faces:
quoted from Darylmarkloc:

Have 'Show Normals' on..select the faces with the blue lines facing INWARDS and then select 'Normals >> Flip'

where did you delete the mesh? in the actual package?
in that case, just take the package out of your downloads folder and start again (reclone it)

Lethe_S, I DID take the package out of my downloads folder, and the Talking table was still eaten by my new mesh.

K now it Doesn't Say it is corrupt or invalid (downloaded win-rar)
Now it says this:

! C:\Documents and Settings\Dylan\Desktop\Dylan's Music and Downloads\Downloads\ms3d177a.zip: The archive is either in unknown format or damaged
! Cannot execute "C:\DOCUME~1\Dylan\LOCALS~1\Temp\Rar$EX00.891\Milkshape 3D 1.7.7a Setup.exe"

Any Ideas???

Dylanier, try redownloading Milkshape, and make sure you let the download complete before opening it. I'm sending you the tutorial right now. And, please, use the Edit button to edit your previous post instead of making several separate posts in a row.

nickbadal, I'm not familiar with Wings 3D, so I'm waiting for someone knowledgeable with that to help you instead.

Just stopping in here to say that I liked the Blender Tutorial. And that I successfully made my first mesh. Hazzas for Spirit of the Sims! I'm not going to post a picture--I mean, just how many Tables do you need to see? But, thanks, guys!

And, on a side note:

I'm not too knowledgeable with Wings 3D--I tried, and didn't like it. But from the error message, it sounds like that the mesh may be too big.

When you made your object, did you resize it using the Maxis object as a base?

TheSims2Freak,
where did you put it?
OfB has a tendency to find anything that's in the sims folder.. desktop is a safer route here
or just delete it altogether

#148 Old 3rd Apr 2006 at 11:01 PM
I deleted it altogether the first time, and the mesh was eaten anyways, and I get...that. I wouldn't mind so much if it wasn't ugly.

Thx Ignorant Bliss BTW does anyone know where I can get SimPE v.36
Part-time Hermit
#150 Old 4th Apr 2006 at 6:06 AM
Dylanier, you can find older versions of SimPE here, although 0.36 doesn't seem to be included. I don't recommend using the older versions with this object tutorial, though.
