Broomie, I know exactly what the rewards bookcase does. Your sim can learn any skill, including logic, creativity, body, and charisma, at a 200% rate of speed. I get that. Sophie-David made it buyable here. Julsfels remeshed and defaulted that phenomenally ugly thing here, making the frame and the books both recolourable and slightly less ugly in the process (even without that absurd tome on top, it is still so top-heavy it drives me nuts). Shastakiss took Julsfels' defaulted mesh and tied it to Sohie-David's buyable rewards here. Install Sophie-David's mod and Shastakiss' addition. That way Carmen can take Julsfel's mesh and recolour it exactly to suit your taste. You will have all of the functionality; she will have a basic, straightforward recolouring job. Doesn't that make sense?

This request inspired me to try something new! I made a buyable bookshelf that does everything the Reward bookshelf does but looks like the Sims Design Ave Castle of Shadows one. It's easy to recolor both the shelves and books. It should be easy to do this for other 1 tile bookshelves as well, but I haven't tried it yet. Would you like to have it?

OMG, amythestfenix, if Sam doesn't want it, I sure do! It looks like a...a real bookcase that won't crash over if it's jostled! :girlie5: Do you still have/may I have the PSD layers? Also, if you're willing, would you please do the Billy bookcase? I really like that mesh, and I've heard (I haven't tried yet) that it's quite easy to recolour too. thau

Edited to add: Also, I haven't a clue what the guts of this thing look like, but is there an editable tuning that could slow down the rate of skilling without disabling the basic functionality? I don't want skilling to be too easy (I play with extended lifespans and have a mod that significantly slows skill gain to make it more proportionate) but it has never made sense to me that making kissy-faces in a mirror or playing with a parrot builds charisma, but reading the great speeches of the past or studying the techniques of effective public speaking does not!

Also, Sam, I'm very surprised the rewards are not showing up for you. Are you sure you installed Sophie-David's mod in the right place? I don't know how your game is configured, but from the install instructions:
The Sims 2 in any configuration -
C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Catalog\Bins

The Sims 2 Deluxe in any configuration -
C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Deluxe\Base\TSData\Res\Catalog\Bins

The Sims 2 Double Deluxe in any configuration -
C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Double Deluxe\Base\TSData\Res\Catalog\Bins

Shastakiss' addition is necessary for Sophie-David's mod to recognise Julsfels' new defaulted mesh, and goes in the exact same place.

Julsfels' mesh goes into your Downloads folder like any other default.

I have Double Deluxe; these mods are sitting in C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Double Deluxe\Base\TSData\Res\Catalog\Bins and are working perfectly.

Thank you so much, Lisa, Carmen, and Croi, for your kind comments on my work! I really appreciate them :girlie5:

Here is the new bookshelf and a bunch of recolors (because I'm really pleased with it and plan to use it a lot, so I had to have it to match stuff I use all the time). Sorry, link removed- see post #137299.

Croi, I use a really old copy of Paint Shop Pro 7, so I've put my .psp template in the folder and also saved it as a .psd file. I hope your Photoshop can read either of them. I'm sure tuning could happen, but I currently don't know how to do it. I've looked at the Billy bookcase, but I don't know yet if my beginner's skill is up to pulling the mesh correctly as my first try crashed the game pull hair out

Sam, I'm so sorry you are not doing well; it sounds like life is awful for you now and I hope things get better soon!

Some pics of recolors- not all shown:

You are welcome!

If you click on the link, it will take you to the folder. You want the file that starts AmF. Download into your game, look at the recolors and delete the ones you don't want. The mesh bookcase (don't delete) looks like the one in the post #137248 picture (the very first one I posted).

Well, that is the bookcase. I'm not sure what's wrong so I'll go back and look at it some more. When you are feeling better could you tell me what functions you did get and which ones are missing for you? This is my first try at this, so I may have messed it up at some point.

Okay, it doesn't seem to be working correctly now, it only has regular FT/AL functions. I'm going to be playing with it some more to see what I messed up. baghead

Amythest, thank you so very much. I use the GIMP, and it opened the PSD perfectly; unfortunately, it can't read PSP files. I have one specific project in mind, and those overlays will be enormously helpful. See, I took one look at the top panel and thought to myself, "Oh, that's a sliding door. It just needs to be detailed." I am hoping to make it look like the bookcase on the far left here, but completely closed. (BTW, look familiar? lol)

Broomie, feel better soon. hugss

Okay, I can make it work with all functions as a default replacement (which was where I started, but I really wanted a stand-alone object). I thought that had happened, but no. So the one that I had up is being taken down (it's currently only acting just like a FT/AL version of the SDA gothic bookcase).

I will upload the default one but it needs Sophie-David's Career Rewards file from MTS and has to be put in the game program files. Still, I do think it looks much better and is more useful than the ugly Maxis one. It's really late now, so I'll get to that tomorrow.

I just can't make the stand-alone object work- now I'm not sure it ever had all the functions  baghead

However, the default is now up in this folder. The PSD is only for people who wish to recolor. I hope you will recolor and share! Croi, I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with- more Cabin Grey stuff is always great.

You will need Sophie-David's Buyable Career Rewards from MTS to use this. Make sure you follow the directions for installing! My files go in the same place (the Bins folder). That's so they can't be deleted within game, which can cause bad things!

Pic of grungy, rustic recolors (shelf and books) which I hope will work for Sam:



Sam, send a pm to Huge Lunatic @ Sims2Artists and she'll help you get your account straightened out!

Sam, download SDpatchSims2_Rewards.zip here. It's the first one in the list. Since you have UC, that's the one you need. I don't have UC, but I believe the path you must follow is C:\Program Files (x86)\EA Games\The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection\Double Deluxe\Base\TSData\Res\Catalog\Bins. Install both Sophie-David's mod and amythestfenix's default bookcase in that folder, and you should be good to go.

Kate, can recolours go in Downloads, or should they be binned too?

Croi is right, Sam. Do what she said :)

Croi, recolors will work in Downloads; they will then be deletable from in game just like any other custom content item. I've been told that you don't want to delete the mesh file from in game because it can cause problems, but I 'm not sure about recolors. So I'd just put them in Bins with the mesh. They work fine there.

I'm glad that you all like this and I appreciate the nice compliments! I'm glad I saw Sam's request because it inspired me to try something new. I've only done default texture replacements before this and I'm pleased to find that mesh defaults are not as difficult as I thought.
