In your folder that you made for this project.... Part II, Step 9, specifically is when you originally found it and saved it to your hard drive.

playgirl - congrats! Your first dramatically bad mesh! Happens to most of us at some point.

It looks to me like 'Mesh: is Laying Down in Bodyshop' http://www.modthesims2.com/article.php?t=131397

Probably your best bet, as you're just learning, is to start over again and watch the way the xyz is set before you export the OBJ file. (also what 3d editor are you using, milkshape, or something else?)

You can also try following the directions in the link I just gave and see if that fixes your mesh.

?? there's a link in the beginning of this tutorial... leads to a thread. The first message has the download of meshtool at the end of it, just like many things on this site.

play girl
congrats on your first working mesh!

marenbobarren, look at the first post on this tutorial... at the beginning... right under "To follow this tutorial you will need:"

Meshing requires open eyes, clean glasses, and your brain set to the on position. Give it another look.

I made it to step 49 this time, but I can't find my GMDC file in the TutorialDress folder. All I see are my modifiedcres and modifiedshape files. When I open it on the desktop, all the files are there, and the GMDC is in 5gn format. What am I doing wrong? Do I have to start all over again...? (oh, and by the way, everytime I look at this tutorial I wonder why some people (aka you) are such geniuses...)

I believe the gn is the geometric data _node_. You should have another one with a funny name similar but with 5gd as the ending. But you should maybe be using the xml? I honestly don't know offhand, because seriously, the program offers you the right thing.

Sounds like you're not letting the program find things with the default settings? It should really offer it to you automatically. Look at the settings at the bottom of the open window and let it list all files.

playgirl, because you skipped the step before that? where you were supposed to add the modified shape and cres to your package. I don't see them on the list big list in the left window. That's why they don't appear.

Yes, putting the modified shape and cres into your project folder is step #19.

Step 20 is opening your bodyshop package.

Step 21 (which you missed) is right clicking and selecting 'ADD' and then reading in your modified shape, and doing ADD again for your modified cres

Then comes Step 22 and 23 which is what you pictured.

!! Hmm, I've not seen that. Thumbnails are generated the _first time_ you look at that particular recolor. So if you had a laying down sim at some point during the edit, that probably would explain it. Deleting your thumbnails (or better, just make another recolor) should give you a working thumbnail. If you make a new recolor, you can then just delete the old one.
