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..

I have figured out I think how to make the floors without a template lol..I did make one..and I really like..it was supposed to go into the Mexican Kitchen but forgot lol

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
