View Full Version : Slaved Object Not Picking Up Master Object's Recolours

18th Feb 2018, 7:57 PM
TS2 creators, would anyone who is familiar with the repository technique be able to have a look at a package file for me and tell me why it isnít working?

I am trying to slave a piece of custom furniture to the Maxis bedding. I have reached the point where the object is picking up the mesh texture but not the recolours. I have followed Kiriís tutorial over on BlogSpot as well as referring to HugeLunatic's tutorial and although Iíve remade the object a few times I canít figure out what Iím doing wrong! (One attempt to fix things led to me game being unable to load any Ďhood where the object had been placed - ooops!). It isn't crashing the game any more, but I can't get it to actually work properly.

If anyone would be willing to have a quick look at it for me to tell me what Iíve done wrong I would really appreciate it! I am not sharing the file here as it is a secret surprise project but I can PM a link to the file :-)

For this, I always follow JWoods tutorial, that I have downloaded and keep in my Tutorials folder. I guess, we all have our fav tuts. :)
Upload your object, I can take a look...or PM me, I can take a look.
Check your pm. It is now working as you want, I uploaded your edited file on my SFS as a private one. As soon as you grab it, me will delete it. ;)
In the pm, I also explain what I did.
If any other questions, just ask.

Not actually solved! *sighs*

I am having more issues with this slaved object. My slaved version overwrites the original (custom) object, even though I have attempted to change the GUIDs for my version (I assume that I did something wrong!). And I had to recreate the object as I completely messed up whilst trying to change the GUIDs and now it has stopped picking up recolours from the master object again and once again I cannot figure out why! :-(

Would anyone be able to have a look at it for me to see where I have gone wrong this time?! I can share a link to my file and the original file through PM if anyone is willing to have a look! :-)

Thank you! I have PM'd you a link to the file. I have managed to stop my slaved version from overwriting the original but it isn't picking up the master object's recolours for some reason :-(

**ETA** Thank you for your help, HL, it's working now! :-)
