For the life in me I can't remember how to do floors in HomeCrafter...I tried it once but it failed but I don't think I had a template for it..

I thought I had even seen tutorials on it but can't find them either..

It's after 4:30am and I have been up all night my brain is dead and fried at this point..lol

Thank you for your help in advance..




Thank you so much Crissi, it's beautiful

Hi Sam .... bighugs

I wrote a tut some years ago for the SimForum ... will look, if I find the time to translate it for you in the next days.

But creating floors is very similar to creating wall papers.
You only need a template in the size 256x256. You can use the provided Template.bmp from the 'floor' subfolder in your Homecrafter folders (EA Games -> Sims 2 -> project -> HomeCrafter Plus -> floors).
With/on this you create your floor in Photoshop.
The conversion in HomeCrafter is the same as the conversion for wall papers - except, that you choose 'floors' (not wall covers) for creating. And you have to choose a matching sound additionally (so that it will sound right, when the sims walk over it in the game).

Just give it a try .... I´m sure, you´ll manage that as good as your wall paper creations. bighugs2

Sam, you just need to correct size texture, either as a jpg or png. Then in your image editing programme, save the file as a bmp. I never used a template. I think, if i remember, you can go to floors in homecrafter and there is a template there.

Its just the texture you use Sam. The texture has a shadow around it. Try a different texture
