No, I don't think you need an internet connection for that. What you're probably getting is an error message about a missing managed Direct X. It's one of the pieces of software listed under "software needed to run SimPE" on the SimPE download page. Lately a lot of people have been missing that. It's important to read all the information when downloading something. You need that in order to be able to view meshes.

ALL MY PROBLEMS ARE FINALLY SOLVED! Thanks, mod_bv and IgnorantBliss for your help! I have a question though: How do you make more complex things on Wings? This one was just a box. How do you make, like a sofa? or a chair? or something else that is more than just a box?

I think there is a tutorial in this section for making more complex meshes with Wings 3D, might want to take a look at that. I don't use Wings myself, so I can't help with the specifics of that.

Also, my end table looks weird because it has the colors of the old one. Should I look at a tutorial for texturing for that?

Do you mean it has all the recolors of the original, or just that you haven't replaced the texture in the mesh packahe with something new yet?

Um I guess so...I'm not sure. I saw in another thread something about TEXTR files. Is that what I need? Because I don't know what that is and there wasn't anything in this tutorial about that...

Okay, I think I found out how to change the TEXTR thingy in SimPE when I tried doing a counter (which didn't work for a different reason so I'm going to have to redo that) but the texture I made didn't show up in the game, it still had the old stuff which looked weird again. Also, the way I thought would work on the counter wasn't even THERE when I opened SimPE to my end table. At the bottom of the list in the Resource Tree, it says Texture or something like that. I clicked on that and it showed up with the texture maps from the old counter. I deleted all of them and imported different jpegs from my own PC...actually, I think I know why that didn't work nevermind but why isn't it there for my end table?

You should not delete the original textures, you're supposed import a new texture to replace them, if you don't want to keep the originals. Also, you don't import JPEGs, but either PNGs or BMPs. For a tutorial that also explains the texture importing part, I recommend the Wings 3D version of this tutorial.

If you don't see anything on the supposed list on the right, go to Extra -> Preferences -> SimPE Settings and click Reset Layout. Also, make sure you have installed the managed DirectX there is a link to at the SimPE download page.

I had that problem too!! What you have to do is go back to the SimPE download page and install the direct x 9 managing thingy. Then just open SimPE and voila! Hope I helped.

The main problem is guessing what people will ask, when you explain a procedure; and answer to those questions before they are asked
And of course, you have to take a lot of screenshots! .

I don't know exactly all the OS supported by Wings, but if MacOS 9 isn'0t listed on the Wings site, then I'm afraid you have to find a different 3D editor... or a different OS .
