Yes, you can do that, summer_wine. Look at my reply to someone else previously here: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthre...975#post1245975

Default No wall folder!
I don't have any "Walls folder", why?
The tutorial was great, but I can't follow it trough becouse there is no folder called "Walls", so when I am in HomeCrafter, there is nothing else to choose but the testwall with the yellow triangle on it.
What did go wrong?
I saved my wall and floor on the desktop, because I didn't know where else to save them.
Please help me if you can, and explain in simple english, because I'm from Sweden :P

Thank you so much HP! I have just made my first walls and floors - yes it took me a couple of days and I made some dumb mistakes, but I did it (and then I danced around like an idiot for a while, singing a happy song). Step by step you led me on the road to actually making something!

Make a folder.
My Documents>EA Games>Sims 2>Projects>HomeCrafter Plus.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE A FOLDER FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS BELOW:
Right click once you click on the HomeCrafter Plus folder.

Then go down and press 'New Folder' that makes a folder name it: 'Walls'

Hehe!

There ya go!

Just leave it like that.

PEACE

Hi!

I'm having a problem with Homecrafter crashing. I probably shouldn't put this here but I can't find any info anywhere else so I'm hoping someone here can help.

I just downloaded it yesterday and was able to open it up twice. Those two times I didn't do anything except look around at how the program worked. So today I made some walls, the first time I opened it, it opened and I was able to go to the create content screen but nothing pulled up and then after a few seconds it crashed. So I tried to open it again with no success and then decided to uninstall and reinstall. I've reinstalled it three times with no luck. When I click on the icon, a little crash window pops up. Can anyone please help me?

Also, is there any way to use SimPE to do walls?

lilmonkeygray,
do you have reflective or transparent floors? Try moving your downloads folder to your desktop and running homecrafter, maybe you have some bad files in there.

Kathy's Creations - no. There is a great book online about learning how to use Gimp - if you can get skilled with general editing and *layers* you should be able to do everything in this tutorial following along, the programs have similar commands.

I have been searching high and low on MTS2 site but I can't find where to submit my newest wallset for sharing on the downloads forum. Can anyone give me a link to where to use the upload wizard that I read about in the creator guidlines?

Click on CREATE on the blue bar. Go to the lower right hand part of the screen. Check the Creator Guidelines first for stuff about good screenshots and anything else that might be needed. Then there's also an upload link for you.

Tiggerypum: It's taken me a few days to get back because I accidently deleted all my files. I had around 12gb of custom content. I ended up downloading a program to restore them all and then spent the last week re-downloading files that were overwritten. I made the mistake of not backing up my files since Oct. right before OFB came out.

So, finally I'm back to fiddling with my own CC. I uninstalled my games and reinstalled them. Then installed HomeCrafter to see if I could get it working. I have no CC in my TheSims2 downloads. I opened HomeCrafter again and it let me pick out the wall and then brought me to the window for specifics; name, price, etc. In this window it doesn't show the wall in the preview box and if I click on the box or the grid options it crashes. I can put a name in and select a price or wall type without any problems but nothing else.

lilmonkeygray - did you try downloading and installing homecrafter again. I'm not sure what to suggest - that and maybe deleting/removing your 'projects' folder and seeing if the game will remake one - maybe that's corrupted. Otherwise, try in the 'game help' area on site for technical suggestions for getting it working.

Thank for the tutorial but... I think the size you wrote downis wrong because I did that and the image was too big shouldn't it be "265x512"

*** Edit: New information discovered June '06! You must first resize your walls to 256x512 before saving as a .bmp. Walls at 256x768 (or ANY other sizing except 256x512) will show as grey for Mac users, though they'll work fine for PC users. Please resize before saving so your walls work correctly for everyone.
