Here's one for you.... I used the Wizard to recolor the Keister Kompanion barstool from the base game. I created 5 cushion RC's and 7 frame RC's. My 5 cushion RC's are showing up just fine, but the frame RC's don't show up now, yet they DID show up during testing. Also, there is a 6th cushion RC showing up that shouldn't be there.

Any ideas?

Also, I was extremely careful to export only the frame portion of the barstool file when I did my RC's. I even re-dl'd the packages from the site I submitted them to thinking that my originals got bugged up somehow, but even the fresh download shows the same errors (extra cushion and no frame options).

I actually figured out the problem myself - somehow CEP and Nvidia DDS Utilities both got messed up on my system. I re-installed them and everything is working fine now. Oh yeah, that extra cushion RC I have is from a ead425's Canterbury Bath collection that I dl'd a while back and almost completely forgot about (I actually didn't know that the barstool was part of the set) :D

Sorry to bump an old thread but I figured it would be okay. I opened SimPE wizard but for some reason it doesn't show that many objects. Whats wrong?

I have all expansion but pets installed and I have the stuff packs celebration stuff and mansion and garden stuff.. Oh and I have the sims 2 deluxe as well.

Ok, can someone help? I tried to recolour, but it said "The object you have selected cannot be recoloured (yet)" What does that even mean? And how can I recolour???

Have you got the CEP installed? Most shipped objects cannot be recolored without that mod. Whether custom objects can be recolored depends upon the creator.

I know I have CEP installed and I wanted to recolor the potty chair and it also said that it could not be recolored (yet). I guess I'll find something else for now, lol, but it would be good to know how to get around that sort of thing.

Ah, I figured it out. When it doesn't let you do it "yet", just press back, click on it again, then press back again, click on it AGAIN, and there you go, it works! Now for my next question...I made some awesome things that I want to upload and share, but I found the pics I used to edit things by googling, do I have to figure out the artist and give credit or is credit only for the person who does the editing??? Like, since I just recolored a Maxis object would the credit go to me, even though I didn't draw the picture I used? If someone were to share the edit I made, would they give credit to me? I just want to make sure I don't break any rules and I have a couple REALLY awesome edits that I am just dying to share :D

I recently updated to Win 7, just discovered that you need to run Wizards as Administrator in order to get all of the Maxis stuff to show up...
