|2nd Feb 2016, 5:28 AM||Looking for textures of maxis original build stuff #1|
So I am new to meshing, recoloring and the whole bit of just playing around with sims 2. I am actually working on my first set of objects to share with the community and realized I need something from the game, but not a clue where to 'find' it. I thought about posting in WCIF, but it really was not involving custom content or any thing like that, since the stuff was already prepackaged with the game.
What I am trying to do is find the actual textures for walls. Taking an ingame pic of said object simply is not 'professional' enough for me. What I am most curious about is HOW -WHERE to find where these textures so that I can extract the information myself. Any help at all would be appreciated.
(and yes, I picked space ponies because, gosh darn it all, I like space ponies)

All textures are located in (install location)\TSData\Res\Sims3D, textures start in Objects07.package.
Note that all uploads must have in game pictures.

Pretty sure what the OP is talking about is taking in game pictures to get the *textures*. Which, yeah, is NOT the way to go about it.

Thanks! I appreciate the info on how to find those maxis textures.
What I meant was that I was actually taking 'snapshots' of an actual wall ~in the game~.
As for uploading CC stuff here, yes, I understand that 'in game' pictures are required for any type of upload. But I do appreciate the clarification, if I was unclear in my post.
^ Yep. Precisely.
Now to go DIVING into Objects07.package !!!
Thank you both for replying. Muchly appreciated. (and yes, I deliberately misspelled that word).

I am back with a few more questions after diving into maxis object files.
I have decided to work with the repository method with my object, but have possibly run into an interesting point in my build where what I would LIKE to do, is borrow a texture from the game to add to one of my subsets in my master object. I really do not want this part of the mesh to be recolored, and I will also mention I already have two subsets that are color enabled.
My question is this : Is it possible for a master object to borrow a texture itself from one of the ObjectXX.packages and thus subsequently lend that same maxis texture to all the slaves I plan on putting into this set and still retain the ability to have two recolor-able subsets?
Just to be a tad bit more descriptive :
Master object has 4 subsets, 2 are recolor-able. and 1 subset I would LIKE/LOVE for it to borrow its texture from a maxis package
--- (pretty sure it will be Object06, although I did find an identical reference (name) in object in Objects09)
I am specifically looking use wall-top_txtr and/or wall-top0_lifo to be referenced/linked too.
Derp Edit : AND if it is possible, can someone point me to the right tutorial or reference material I need to read/learn from?
