You probably missed this part of the tutorial:

Edit to add: you CAN also edit the "countertop" mesh, but DO NOT modify the flat part of it; you can edit/remove the back trim, or add something to the front: just don't touch the flat part of the top, included the UV-mapping of the flat surface!


This means that also the texture can't be modified, for the part related to the countertop. In your texture, the layout is completely different, as well as the UVmap for the countertop.

Thank you for your quick answer, and I will put the correct countertop back in simPE. Of course I know there are many people out there that would like to re-color the countertop, so maybe one day they will find the solution and let all of us know. Anyway when I get the counter up and working I'll put up a picture for you to see. Thank you once again. Peggy
Numenor I took the 2 zips out.

Recolouring the countertop is perfectly fine. Changing the colour of a texture, without moving the texture parts around, doesn't break the sink hole. But you reorganized the entire texture layout, according to you new mesh and UVmap (it's the new UVmap that broke the sink).

Numenor I got the kitchen counter done with your help and another mesher to explain some of the words and where to go.
Thank you once again for the tutorial and your posts to me.
Here is a picture of the finished counter

PS I think it turned out beautifully

Wonderful! Did you have the anti-alias turned off while creating the snapshot? I see plenty of jagged lines...

No I didn't mess with the anti-alias. So thats why the picture is not as good as it should be. Thank you for all your help Numenor
and the wonderful tutorial.

Hi, I know this thread is a few years old, but I've just started meshing and was looking for a tutorial like this. I've managed the first few steps, but when it comes to changing the GMND's, my SimPE screen doesn't look anything like the picture, so I'm a bit stuck.

Any help would be very gratefully received.

LadyAngel, based on your picture you are selecting the incorrect lines.

You have to select a line containing 'tslocator' in the name (except for the one at the top of the list).

Then you can use the drop down list called 'Blocklist' and select the one with 'tsMaterialsMeshName' in it.

When you do that the window will look the same. Hope that helps.

You're right, I managed to find it, thanks. However, I think I'll give counter creation a miss for the time being, at least until I'm a bit more experienced in meshing.

hi. i think i really shouldn't bother asking, but, anyway, exactly why aren't the SimPE counter clones good for cloning? something about the scripts? I'd like to learn how to fix them manually for my enjoyment.
Me? Sarcastic? Never.
