Wel he hasn't been online in two years so I'm afraid I'll just not be able to recolor it.

It doesn't sound like the book is recolorable then. You would have to contact the original creator and ask him/her to fix it OR for permission to fix it yourself and share it.

edit: That was strange. When I posted this, I'd swear that HL's post wasn't there..I'd swear that lientebollemeis' post wasn't there.. Was there some kind of time warp this morning?

Well on his profile (nate92488) he says that I don't need permission. That's a good thing.

But I have no idea how to fix that myself.

I'd love to be able to tell you how to fix it and that it would be easy. However, I took a look at one of the meshes- 1a from the "American" .rar and I don't understand some of it myself.

Maybe some SimPE wizard will read this and be able to figure it out: The tsDesignModeEnabled entry is there in the GMND for the cover. The TXMT, SHPE, and MMAT are definitely there. So is the texture. It would seem that some of the entries aren't needed- there is a TXMT and TXTR for each of the different covers. If you click "recolor", you get the subset selection box- the TXMT is there, the TXTR is there..there are 2 MMAT's though, and I'm pretty sure they were exactly the same- down to the family string.

Can it be fixed? Inquiring minds and all ya know. I've "fixed" un-recolorable meshes and have never run into the 2 MMAT thing before..

Looking at the comments it seems as though those books have issues with sims resetting, which means it needs work in the BHAVs most likely. Doesn't sound like something worth fixing the recolorability if it has technical issues. There are others that appear to work correctly, just look in Downloads > Hobbies > Knowledge.

I don't have issues with those books. But I will check it.

Edit: I tested it again and it works perfectly. It always has.
So can I fix it to recolor it?

Not sure why it works for you, but it gives me an error and makes my sims reset.

http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=103379 That tutorial by Ignorant Bliss shows how to add recolorable subsets, but it also lists all parts needed to make an object recolorable.

Tutorials:Understanding_the_Scenegraphwiki will also help to understand the linkage in a package.

Maybe it's the combination with another download?

Hi, I can not recolor an object (bed) custom, please help me.
I click right on the image and does not appear to Build DXT option.

If the build dxt option does not appear then you need to download and install the nvidia utilities. Link should be in the first post otherwise google. The first images shows how to find the and enter the filepath for simpe.

I installed nvidia utilities and Build DXT option appeared, but my recolor only appears in the game if I remove the original. only works one at a time.

Are you saving your recolor with a different name? Also, are you sure you're choosing "recolor" and not "clone"?

I did that, but those other books have way more options like all the study skills options. I just want the option Read ...(name of book) in the pie menu. That's why I chose those Harry Potter books. I don't know how to remove an option correctly from a pie menu.
So can someone fix the recolor problem or shall I just keep on cloning it and make a collectionfile?

The uploadmanager asked me the question to recolor it, so I really need to know.

lientebollemeis - No, no one is going to fix it for you. I've given you two links to help you to fix it and there should be no reason why it cannot be made recolorable.

Yeah, I saw that, but do I have to follow the tutorial completely as I only want to make it recolorable?
I consider I don't need to add a subset.
I'm sorry to bother you that much with it. I'm really new at this so I know nothing about those things.

I guess I just need to follow step 5 then?
I'll try that out now.

Edit: I followed it from step 5 onwards. Editing in SimPE was no problem. The book shows up in my game, but the recolor did not.
So it didn't work. I followed the tutorial (from step 5 and onwards) exactly.

Like Mustluvcatz already mentioned there are two MMAT's and I don't really know what to do with them as there are two.

Any suggestions?

Please someone help me, my recolor only appears in the game
if I remove the original file (a custom bed).
I have already changed the name of my recolor,but not resolved.

#1093 Old 26th Aug 2010 at 6:14 PM
Are you sure it's a recolor? Is is not the same object with the same GUID, but a different color?

when I use the workshop nothing appears in the game, but when I open the custom bed file with the SimPE, I export the texture, modify and import again
change the color of the bed, but I have to move the original file.

wannya, it sounds like you're cloning the bed instead of recoloring it. When you open it in SimPE, you have a choice of "clone" or "recolor". Since you don't want to change the mesh at all, only it's color, you need to choose "recolor".

So, you're clicking "Open" (below Start- NOT File>Open on the toolbar), browsing to and clicking on the bed package, clicking "recolor" and renaming it, then recoloring it and it's NOT showing up in game doing that. Which bed are you trying to recolor?
