"Baking"?
Cookies?
For me?

If you like to say what you think, be sure you know which to do first.

Haha, Bit keen for cookies there Wes Also to the person whom inquired about images, yes they will happen, like i said, when tools are more stable, so i don't have to update pictures weekly.


It's ok, we all laugh-snort occasionally!

Not to sound redundant but my earlier post was not answered. How do you get an alpha to work? I'm not used to the DDS picture format. Do you do them like PNGs (in separate layers) for the alphas to work, or is it different?

And I will be doing stuff soon - I hope. Been really hectic for me irl, but I am keen because I'd done some nice meshes for sims 2 that never got released. And I'd like to release them for 3.

MilkShape Object plugins can not save the mesh was not msS3Objexp.dll file. Where do I need to save the file msS3Objexp.dll? I'm sorry, but as [email protected] Would you like to send?
This is Korea.
Please.

What image editing app are you using?

The alpha in a .dds file is manipulated just like the alpha in any other graphics file format that supports alphas... in Photoshop, you'll see it on the channels list.

The one thing you have to know is that you have to save a DDS with DXT5 or better compression for the alpha to be included.

Hmmm... I may give this a try. I want to make helmets for my Sims so I can have my own version of Daft Punk ^^

Default Can't open .mcfg
Ehm... Hello.
I tried to manage creating meshes, but now I can't get on at step 4. MilkShape doesn't want to let me open those *.mcfg-Files. There's only *.ms3d to choose from.

Help please?

E: Could the reason be that I haven't got a license?

You need to "import", not "open". And have the proper DLL's in Milkshape's folder.

If you mean the two files which were with the ObjectTool. I already put them in.
And when I click on Import/Sims 3 Object Import following message appears.

This copy is not registered! If you want to use MilkShape 3D, you should buy a registration code at http://www.milkshape3d.com

But I thought this was a free trial.

How long you have you free trial? The free trial goes 30 days, then you must buy it.

You dont need it, the only thing you need is the Sims 3 ObjTool, open it click on Decombine and klick the file. And than look in the Direction you have the File. It must show you many file.

Now do your meshing stuff until you are finished up (you also need to map your object before exporting it back to an mcfg).

Once you are done, and your object is mapped, click “file>export” and select “Sims 3 Object Export by Wesley Howe”, when you go to save it make sure you use the SAME FILE NAME! I cannot stress that enough, it must be the same file name as the .mcfg that you imported. Once that is done you can close Milkshape and move on.

By "map" I'm assuming you mean separate everything? I.E. Legs/Seat?

I was modifying (sp?) a painting, I wanted a bigger one, it worked well, but just when you see it near, from far view it changes its size to the one of the object I cloned it from... I am missing something? or that's something I can't do anything about?
