Can someone help me please?


reflective, like mirror? You have to work with Shader... like Muranos and Numenor did. Take a look: http://www.modthesims2.com/download.php?t=241986

First, I'd like to say how much I love this tutorial. I've been through it a few times now, and it's helped me immensely! Thanks a lot!

Second, this is probably going to be the *dumbest* question on earth, but any suggestions for how to go about renaming a *large* number of wallpapers? Say - 42? *winces* I made them all in Homecrafter, replete with long descriptions (which I'd really rather not have to redo), before I realized it wouldn't name them as I'd titled them. (I hadn't read that far in the tutorial, *blush*.) So now I have 42 walls all named "wallxxohmygod".package and I'd like to rename them properly.

As a side note: I've tried using Sims2Pack Clean Installer to do this, but my version isn't working since I've upgraded to Windows Vista. (When I hover over the name the detail information flickers so you can't read it. Among other problems.)

You can batch rename all the Walls using Sims 2 WTF (Wall, Terrain and Floor) Editor @ DJS Sims.

Hey I love this tutorial and when I first saw it I couldn't wait to begin, but my new computer won't open homecrafter. It's installed on my computer and the icon is on my desktop but nothing happens when I try to open it... Does anyone know how to make it work? Or can I use another program? I'm new to making stuff so please bear with me if there is an obvious answer

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.

I tried the tutorial on solving problems with homecrafter plus nothing worked for me, is homecrafter really the only program you can use to make walls, floors and groundcover?

If your SimPE is on advanced mode you can clone/create new walls and floors. Take a look

I'm having a bit of a problem with floors created in HomeCrafter...
I make them as the guide says, and save and import them into the game. In the HomeCrafter program the floors look just fine, but when I get into the game and look at them in the catalog I see that they've turned purple. Not completely purple, but they've been giving a purple tint.

I've tried and tried to fix this. I've tried changing the sizes of the floor images, resaving them, remaking them, setting different options, and so on... Nothing changes it.
The walls and ground covers I've made turn out just fine in-game, but all of the floors I make have a purple tint. This isn't the case for all of the floors, just the ones I've made...
Any clue what's going on here?

Thank you for this tutorial. I am just beginning to think about creating. Question. Was wanting to use some scanned photos. My scanner has 300 dpi, 600 dpi and 1200 dpi. Which one should be used? Also, the photo is 8x10 inches. Can it just be reduced to the one size for Homecrater or do you still have to tile? I have Paint Shop Pro. Can this be used instead of Paint.Net? Thank you.

I wonder why people think that gimp is so bad. I used photoshop for some time, and I couldn't find many differences. I know is better, but Gimp is a great tool! And the latest versions had lots of filters, so I think you must change the part of the tuto that talks of Gimp (or at least put an "Updated" part or something). Anyway is just a suggestion, you're free to do what you want, of course.

Regards!
