PostSubject: Recolors - How do I make them?   Wed Sep 05, 2012 5:25 am

hello2 My Forum Friends! I just recently created more Carpets/Tiles/Walls, but was wondering how I could make "Recolors" of objects I've created. Would anyone have instructions how I can do that? I'd be most grateful for your feedback!

thankyou

mickeywave Hi, BBdoll! goodpost

I hope that you are doing well.

I also wish I could help you. It's something I'd like to learn as well. Actually I'd even like to learn how to make some of the objects. In any case, i would like to learn how to recolor EA objects. More than once I'm re-modeling a room and find an object and think "I wish I had this in a different color." (Actually same goes for EA made clothing.)

Maybe another Simmer will see this and put the directions here or give us a link to where we can find them.

Thanks, Hun! You know what? I'm working on documentation on how I make my Carpets and Tiles to share with my daughter. Would you like a copy? Maybe I can post it here for others who may not know how, can use. And some of our more 'Experiance' Simmers can maybe provide their input as well.

Hi BBdoll. I haven't a clue how to do any of that stuff, but our affilitate, Affinity Sims, has tutorials that they have brought over from Sublime Sims, which seems to have gone MIA. lol There are tutorials that show how to make your own meshes and other stuff. Maybe ya'll can figure it out and have a go at it, but not me - I'm afraid my brain will explode!

thankyou BBdoll, that would be great. I think it would fit well under the tips, tricks & tutorial TS2 section. I think it's always great when you share those things. Maybe then I could get the floors the color I want.

And, thankyou CindaLove for sharing the link. It's always great to have new information.

Hi Cinda. I went to the link you provided, but I don't think that's what I want. It's a tutorial for recolor of clothing. I was looking for one that is for Carpets, Tiles, Chairs, etc. I don't think this will work. I found this link on Mod, but sawan agreement which says, "The us of SimPE might cause problems to your "Sims 2" game or the entire system.

That's scary, and in order to utilize the Recolor feature, I need to load software for SimPE found here.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Would you happen to know if this is safe or not? I may just forget about the recolor, as it's not really that important. I'll just go through the drill of making things separate as I was doing.

For flooring and walls you may want to use Homecrafter plus for the sims. SimPE however is your best bet for recoloring furniture but I could never really get into all that stuff so I really know nothing about it except you can most likely find various turtorials on the web.

Hello Mystic! I've missed you, hun! sunny Thanks for the tip. I think you're right, and I am using HomeCrafter Plus. That's how I made them. I was just wondering if there was some way I could do recolors on them.

Hi BBdoll. I know that the tutorial show how to recolor with the outfit, but I thought the concept would be the same for floors and walls, but minus the Body Shop. But if that doesn't work for you hun, maybe Neff or someone else may know of a tutorial specifically what your looking for.

Ok, thanks Cinda. I will try that and see. I'll let you know too. I just thought it was for Clothes.
