I went into SimPE..and did the browse and tried to put the DDS folder into SimPE but it won't work either..omgosh..I know it has to be simple..why isn't anything I do simple..I tend to make it harder than it is..
Now on my desktop I have the DDS file folder..which thing inside of it do I put in SimPE..although nothing is showing up when I browse it in SimPE..
I'm going to try it again..I don't know what I am doing wrong..I'm sorry tilly

Ok I just did it and it's in there..I booked marked that lol..
Thank you..so much tilly

I am looking over the tutorial..I printed that off lol..and it looks like your going to do a custom piece..can you do a tutorial on that for the in game stuff..I really don't want to mess around with anyone else's things...don't want to make a mistake and do something that wasn't supposed to me touched..so all I want to learn is to recolor the in game stuff..thank you

It says that in thew tutorial Sam. There are two buttons in object workshop: start is for maxis stuff (in game) open is for custom cc. Its ok to recolor a custom cc, you just have to check the creators TOU. Most are ok with it, but some want a link back to their original download page for the mesh, rather than include the mesh in your download. You would need to state whether the mesh is included or not in your download page.

Ok, I'm sorry tilly as soon as I read your post I looked again on this paper and seen it..
One of the reasons it will be hard to recolor someone creations is because there are so many that are leaving Sims2..and links disappear and all that..and then if/when I make a mistake and don't see all that is written down and then I recolor it..omgosh..that would be devastating and so embarrassing..I don't want to make those mistakes..I want to do things right..
Thank you again tilly..
I am sure I will have more questions lol..
Oh one more for now lol..where do I go and get the textures and all that to recolor

If a creator has left the community Sam, you can include the meshes in your file. It's no different to us hosting downloads here really. :girlie5:

Ok thank you tilly
also where can I find links to textures..I want to start out with a couch/chair/loveseat..I think those would be the easiest or maybe a table with the wood..

Well I am off for a bit..I ate to early and now ready for a stupid nap..I will be back on later..

Textures are hard to find, and that takes the time. Try google images and ask for what you are looking for. It can point you in the right direction. Ill have a look through my links and see what I have....but right now Ive got to work. BBL.

Oh ok, I thought you meant right at the beginning. You know it takes ages to fully load all the EA objects...I cant do anything to help with pictures as I don't have sims 2 installed anymore. There must be a picture tutorial out there. Have you googled it?
