Hi again!
I'm trying to convert a rowboat for Island Paradise, but something weird is going on. I tried to keep mine level with EA's, but somehow EA managed to not have water get into the hollow body of their boat, while mine is looking like a tragedy.
Does anyone have any idea how to fix this, please?

Alright, I was given an absolutely amazing tip at my simblr:

Quote:
Mspoodle1: Does it have a sink mask? I can't remember how boats work but I'll fire up tsrw later today and see if I can tell what controls the cut-out part.


I did some googling, and the first result I got about sink masks is the late great Pocci/Gardenbreeze: http://poccisims3.blogspot.com/2014...s-in-tsrws.html

However, they're talking about wall masks, and apparently the options are different for editing walls and boats? I can't do any of that fancy drawing Pocci did to make my own custom sink mask in "cut-out edit mode."



Hrm.... Must investigate further. This is interesting!

Found something interesting -- the only other CC rowboat conversion I know of is Sil's Pocahontas canoe here , so I opened it in TSRW to look at their masks, and apparently they used the same texture from their multiplier! Huh! I'm gonna try that. >:D

[EDIT]
Nope -- no change.

Important update: it's not the sink masks, it's me being an idiot (as usual).

I grouped the mesh parts all wrong. Dang.

Silver lining: I just learned about sink/wall masks -- I can try making doors and windows now!
