No, it won't cause a problem. It should be enabled.

Are you sure your files are in the right Saved Sims and Projects folders? If you have anything like Any Game Starter on your computer, you can end up with multiple copies of those folders.

No I don't have such a program, but I discovered a way. I put the .package file in the folder 'downloads' and now the game does show the recolored clothes! Thank you for the suggestions, I really appreciate it!

Make sure you're using the Body Shop that came with your most recent expansion pack.

The images to help us along have disappeared from the tutorial. I know they're still down at the bottom, but it makes the tutorial harder to follow if you keep having to scroll down and back all the time.

Hi!

I have the missing image files for this tutorial. I have RAR'd them and uploaded them to Creator Issues. Would one of the supermod types unpack them and put them back please? I don't have the access. The missing image files all have MTS_(a number)_Faylen_(image name).jpg as their names.

Sacharissa. I used your post to report that I have the missing images.

~ porky


I made a wiki version of Faylen's tutorial with the images next to each section.
http://www.simswiki.info/wiki.php?t..._-_wiki_version

Now that that's done. I am off to make a TS2 recolor for JUNE Fitness!

m-nno55, did you look in My documents/EA games/ Sims2/ Projects? You should find a folder there called greendress and also a package file in your saved sims folder called (buncha-hex-numbers)greendress.package

Hi, I am using Adobe Photoshop 5.0 (Limited Edition - Yes, I do know that it is old ) And I was just wondering - how do you save the image files as Bitmaps? Because when I click the arrow that shows more options for saving as image types, Bitmap (.bmp) isn't an option! I'm sorry if this has been already asked half a dozen times, but I would like to know, if you know.
Thanks again

I used to use the really old, limited-edition versions of Body Shop. They absolutely should have the option for bitmaps; it's one of the oldest image file formats I can remember using!

If the option isn't showing up... have you flattened your image? Bitmaps can't save layers, so if your image still has layers, Photoshop isn't going to let you save it as a bitmap.

You can do a simple "crop" of shirts by adjusting the alpha texture (that's the black and white one). There's a tutorial explaining that sort of thing here. You can do the same thing with shoes, as long as the basic shape of the shoes is the same and they're mapped the same way.

To actually crop clothing and change the shape of shoes, you need to learn meshing... not just recolouring. There are some great basic tutorials in the meshing section here on MTS. Start with this one.
