I am wanting to start getting into modding items. Too many times I find something I like that won't allow sharing recolors or I need something to be a certain way for a build. I'm wretched at understanding this stuff and tutorials just look like a bunch of nonsensical words to me.

Is there anyone willing to skype or step me through how to do a recolor? I have a chandelier I want another color (possibly improve the texture) and I want to create my own paintings (wall decor) for the game. I currently have photoshop, paint, Blender, S4Studio.

Hi Melisa - I can help walk you thru it on skype! It's pretty easy to do in TS4 in my opinion. I think it's much easier than TS2 at least. I'm not the greatest with photoshop tho. I use paint shop pro but if you're familiar with photoshop, anything I'd show you in my program you'd be able to do in photoshop as well.

My daughter was looking into doing something like that too for Assurant. But, in the end she took a Mgt job at Sears instead.

Luckily for me, I don't have to be on the phone at all. I work for a pharmaceutical marketing company. I read a lot of medical journal publications to cross reference the authors listed to make sure they are the correct doctors we have in our system. And, I prepare a lot of spreadsheets and PDF's of national and international meetings and conferences.

Boring!!!! .... but, it pays my bills and I work in my jammies!

Working from home is so cool...

...when you have the right job to do it with AND you can motivate yourself to be consistent with it.

It sure sounds like both of you are excellent at doing this <3

I'd love to skype with both of you, Melisa and TJ... just to chat :D

...skype is my "window" to the world, hehe <3

TJ, I would love your job. I am currently trying to move in a position that will be less calls. I struggle dealing with other peoples stupid. I have enough of my own to deal with lol.

Suzanne, I would love to as well but I'm so very awkward compared to how I am online. I'm not sure I'd be all that fun to talk to, lol.

Awww, Melisa I doubt that! It's the same as being online! We don't care!

Suzanne - I'd love to skype with you! I don't have a webcam tho (ever since I caught my daughter talking on it with her shirt off and in just her bra! LOL .. I unhooked it and threw it away!

You can add me ... Chicklet45368 is my skype name

I sent you a contact request, TJ...

...even talking over skype is fun for me :D

Melisa - talking is easier for me than keyboarding... Besides, I think we'd have fun talking :D

I'd be happy for you to pm me with your skype contact if you'd like. No pressure :D

Thanks Suzanne! It's 1am for me now and heading to bed, but I'll log on tomorrow when I get done working out, about 6:30pm EST and accept it, and then you can just msg me whenever you're free!

I'm excited!

Sounds great, TJ...

Does your microphone/sound still work? If so, we can talk even without the video... :D

Yes, I talked with Sam a few months ago when I was trying to help her learn to recolor. I have a headset I use. I used to be an online DJ and talked on skype all the time to far away friends but this is a different computer so I couldn't remember if I had used the mic on this one or not

But, all is good!

likewise. I have a headset no cam and I will add you to my skype. I skype through my laptop and just been so caught up trying to fix my mods that haven't been on it last few days. I will try tonight and log on after work, so it will be after 630pm EST. I'll stay logged in for anyone who wants to say hi. It'll probably show me currently logged in but I can't guarantee a response till after 6pm. I believe you can find me under Harley Pool (?) Not sure skype is confusing lol.

I was wondering if we should not also put up a step by step tutorial about how to recolor objects for the benefit of all our members?
Our next BAC contest will be up soon and this may help!
TJ, maybe we can collaborate and try to write and picture the different steps?

I think that's a fabulous idea Anita! And, I'm sure that many people will benefit from it too! Even if it's just for personal use to have something in a color they need.

I would love to collab with you on this!

I would love a tutorial but I may still need additional help. I'm A.D.D. so if at any point I start to struggle I wander off both mentally and physically, lol. runcircle

Ok, so I managed to recolor an in-game painting. I think I may even have an idea how to recolor a frame. Tutorial I watched the guy using photoshop put the image behind the frame... I would like to know how to do that if anyone understands what I mean and knows how to do it. Any help would be welcome and appreciated.

I also struggled trying to figure out how to pull up cc to recolor. I know how to find base game content but how do I pull up the files in S4S? Also, if I am being honest I may need step by step instructions.

Programs I have installed are S4S and Photoshop. Are there any other programs I should use or have for recoloring?

I'll log on in sec. In case we have to screenshare I am going to use a different skype acct. For some weird reason the skype on my PC won't let me sign in using my acct connected to my facebook (the one you and suzanne have)

Oops, TJ, I kind of forgot about our project.
I think I will put together something and then pm you.... you can add and chop and change..... I will aim at addressing the things I did not know when I started out recoloring.
Then when you are also ready we can Skype and fine tune it.

Anita - That's perfect! And, will be a great help too! I totally forgot about it as well. I was busy finishing up things, but today I had some free time and Melisa was online so I just went over a few things to get her more comfortable with how to do it.
