maxinerei - Please go back to post one and reread it. Under the heading What You Need, step C lists the nVidia dds utilities. You need to download and install, then point to them in SimPE.

The problem package by Minena was solved and is at BPS. For curious cats, the resources inside had different names. It required a Fix Integrity.

This is a great tutorial.I haven't started yet although I have every tool needed. I'll have to read again&again to be sure. It's slowly making sense. Thanks for your great work.

I just got the latest version of SimPE, and I don't know if it is me (I'm running Windows 7 x64), but it crashes VERY often. I'm trying to recolour some CC but the Subset Selection window is constantly turning up blank (all grey).

I used "Open" to select the CC package


**EDIT**: I got it to work, it just decided to behave thanks!!

This tutorial is great! Thanks so much! Without all your awesome tutorials I would never have gotten into all the recolouring stuff. I love to colour and draw and edit with photo shop so I jump at any oportunities like this.

I do have a slight problem though, well 2 actualy: I have been attempting to recolour Dragon Slave's brilliant horses [The Only Horse Your Sim Will Ever Need, not Lucy & Ginger] and I followed the totorial as exactly as I could but I hit a road block once I went in-game. I put the package in my downloads folder after finishing and then loaded my game. When I went to the horse and looked for my recolour, they just came up in the colours they already were and the manes and tails on the horses were that flashing blue? [I think I saw someone else with the flashing mane/tail problem] So not only did the recolours not work, half the object is blue?
Please help!

Thanks heaps,

Exotic011,

Sorry for a very late response. I'd try to answer if I noticed this thread recently posted.

My question and fact-based responses:
1. just in case, the object is made to be recoourable?
2. the blue flash can mean broken texture reference. In other words, the material file of the recolour file may be calling up a wrong texture address. That may interefere with the original object's material file rendering esp. when the object is not recolourable. These are possibilities but not limited.
3. Have you installed CEPs if it's in-game? Also may check if it's supported by CEPs.

My suggestions:
1. If you're unsure if the object is recolourable, may ask the maker of such object.
2. you may give the object link if it's not in-game.




metalheadneko,

May get a new copy of SimPE or check the game folder in the preference.

The mane and tail of the horse have alpha channels. Alpha channels are something I've never worked with so I don't know if that would have anything to do with the flashing. And the horse is recolorable, Dragon Slave mentions that in the post.

I downloaded the Nvidia Tools and for some reason i cant find them in the browse thing. It also says "The Nvidia DDS Tools were not found. You can download them here." And that gives me to the same link i downloaded it from. I keep downloading it but it wont work. My computer is Windows 7...does that have to do with it? What can I do?

After downloading the nvidia tools you need to install them, then browse to the folder that they installed to. Usually C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\DDS Utilities

how can you edit a custom object recolor shiny/metallic? please tell me how!!!!!!!!!!!

To recolor custom objects you will need to use the Open instead of Start in Object Workshop and browse to where the mesh is. To change material properties you will want to edit the TXMT, and you can use this reference by Pixelhate.

You can do that in two ways:

1) Add reflection in the Material Definition as explained in this thread:
http://www.modthesims.info/showthre...ight=reflection
Look for Dewshine's post.

2) Make a texture map that looks shiny. For instance take a look at how the texture map of the expensive Maxis fridge is done.

Talk about simultaneous posting!

I'm very confused. And what if it only has one spot to recolour? All I want to do is make a Vampire Academy poster, but I can't figure this out.

#1069 Old 29th Jun 2010 at 8:11 AM
GiraffeLady, could you be a little more specific. What is it you can't figure out? Some objects only have one subset to recolor. If you need two subsets you'll have to choose a different object to recolor.

Any way of getting this as something other than an internet window or a PDF? The computer I make my custom and recolours on isn't set up for PDF or internet. Help?

I tried this with a custom object (Harry Potter book) to make a recolor (the other harry potter books) so there are no 14 images in buy mode, but just one with 13 recolors.
Making the recolor is no problem, but when I try it in game there are no images that there is a recolor.
What can I do?

Do you mean the book isn't recolorable? If that is the case you need to contact the original creator so they can fix it. Otherwise, I'm not really sure what you mean. :/

I don't know if it's recolorable. How can I find out?

Never that's why I want to make a recolor. You see it are 14 separate books in buy mode. I want it to be one book in buy mode with 13 recolors so I don't see 14 different books in buy mode.
