Sam, you rock!  rock
I think you're really really good and getting better with each and another piece of recolor.
I'm proud of you, good job.
I'm looking forward to the final results! :girlie5:

Definitely look into TJ's suggestion, Sam...

...I know there is a way to allow the underlying "wrinkles," shadows, and whatnot to show on recolors, but from what I can see in your post, most of your fabric textures do not need them.

I really do love what you've been doing :D It is truly cool to see your persistence, progress, and final results. <3

I have gotten all 10 of the pillows done that I have been working on..got a few rugs done..some of them are matching with the pillows just have to get them in a zip and upload them here lol..

I will attempt the wrinkles in the next part of the pillows..just to test it out..but if everyone is saying that what I have shown you all are ok..I went ahead and finished up the 10 I was doing..

Oh shoot good grief I did it again..this is for Photoshop..not SimPE.. bored

well I got my pictures on my headboards on in the middle this time and they are looking great..I can't wait to put them all up for downloading..I am really proud of these..I had to go through like 15 attempts to get what I really love lol.

So far I have 4 single bed frames done, and 4 double bed frames done..now going to work on some dressers to match them..

Still have to work on the blankets..I have been avoiding that mess lol..and still have a few of Echo's rugs to finish up as well..

Ok, back to having problems lol.. funny2

As you know I used HugeLunatic's Mix-n-Match Canvas Art & Frames..and I was able to use the Canvas but for the life in me when I click on the master it gives me only the Canvas..

When I click on anything else there is nothing showing up in SimPE?????

How do I get this person's frames to work in SimPE..???

That's beyond my expertise. I never fully understood master/slave meshes for recolors.

Thank you so much TJ..omgosh I did this like 6-8 times before I got the perfect pictures with the perfect colors..I made 4 of the double bed 4 of the single bed and then 4 armoires and 4 dressers..lol..

Now I want to take some pictures and add them to pictures frames..for the kids rooms that I did some dressers with..but can't figure out what to use in HughLunatic's meshes..

TJ..how do you use someone elses meshes for recoloring..I know that sounds like the same question..but when you recolor someones meshes how do you do it..

Sam - It's different for TS4 than it is for TS2. In TS4 you clone the mesh or as it says in Sims 4 Studio "Create 3D Mesh". Which basically just means it's making an exact copy of the mesh. You're not changing anything except the texture, but it works alone by itself with no additional mesh needed for your recolors to show up.

In Sims 4 Studio, if I choose "Create Stand Alone Recolor" ... that means I'm basically doing what you have to do in TS2. I'm creating a texture to go on a mesh someone else made, but my recolor doesn't actually "contain" the mesh, it's just a texture that will "wrap" around the mesh object and that's why you have to have the original mesh in your game so your texture will be applied to it.

In SimPE there is an option to Clone, a drop down menu, instead of recolor. I'm not sure if you used that option to recolor something if your recolor would still require the mesh or not. I only use SimPE to get the object from TS2 into a format that I can use in blender when I convert objects. That is the option I choose because I need the actual mesh (which is called GMDC). If I would chose Recolor instead, I would only have access to the texture and not the actual mesh. When you clone an object in SimPE you get a pop up with options to check what you want to clone, I have all of mine check marked.

You could test it with a CC item and not a game item, then check in your game if it shows up with no other CC in your game. If it doesn't show up or is blue and you can't place because it's missing the mesh, then you know that won't work.
