As far as I know, Homecrafter puts the wallpapers directly in the Downloads folder. Sorting the downloads by file creation date may help.

Zeehorse,
on the top right of your screen is a 'User tools' button
click the little arrow next to it and go to 'upload items'

Do you mean the things listed in the first post? No, you generally only need one of each: one mesh editing program, one uv-mapper, one graphics program and so on. Sometimes one program can't do everything for you, so you may need to use another, but you do not need all of the mesh editors or all uv-mappers, no.

It depends on what you want to make. If you want to make new meshes (objects with a new shape), then yes. If you want to recolor existing meshes, then no .

I have (yet another) 3-D modelling program (gmax), and have found that I can't import Sims 2 meshes into it to modify. that is, it reads a limited number of mesh types. My question is whether each of the 3-D programs you list can read the Sims 2 meshes. I know there is a plug in for Milkshape (which program just crashes and crashes for me) that reads the bodyshop exports, but how about the other programs?

fudgeart,
all the programs in that list can read obj. files, or have plugins that do so
there is still some discussion, though, whether they're all good for making body meshes, so it depends on what you want to do

Thanks, Lethe S. Here is a follow up question (you'll be able to tell I'm a creations newbie!). I was following Neptune Suzie's tutorial, and got to the point that I had extracted 8 files. She then says to open Milkshape and go to TS2 Body Chop Importer to bring the 5gd file into Mildshape. That's where I'm stuck--this isn't an obj. file. Is there something that one of the other programs have that will let me import 5gd files?

I'm afraid not. Both the BodyChop and the GMDC importer has been created as Milkshape plugins and can't be used with other software.
The problem is that such plugins are only interesting for (and used by) TS2 users, and therfore is very hard to find a TS2 user as skilled as Wes_h (the creator of both Milkshape plugins) that creates a specific plugin for other programs.
Unless my information are inaccurate, the only program you can use to edit body meshes is Milkshape.

EDIT: But... Did the MeshTool have an exporting feature specifically designed for clothing? I don't remember, I've never used that feature, but I think I'm right.

I've finally started my Journal. Information only, no questions.

You can use the Mesh Tool for body meshes instead of the wes_h plugin, although I don't know if it's specifically been designed for that. The clothing mesh tutorial by Brianna uses the Mesh Tool.

Meshtool definitely can edit body meshes! :D
If you can edit an obj file and you do NOT delete or add any vertices to the mesh and do not move them past joints (no above knee skirts dragged to below knee, it won't animate right) you can use meshtool.

You can also do full edits with full bone support with meshtool using either modtool (which is free, but complicated, must get my mini-tutorial thing up for it) or using 3DS Max with the 3ds studio cannonfodder exporter.

There's a ton o data associated with body meshes, and thus those are your options. And Wes' plugins, which you must use with Milkshape.

You guys are so wonderful! So I'm going to ask another question. I got Milkshape, and the Bodychop plug in, and it runs (maybe because I registered it?) , but when I import the GMDC file I created following NeptuneSuzy's tutorial, there appears to be a set of blue lines and vertices surrounding the full-figure white mesh. It makes it hard to see the actual mesh, which, of course, makes it hard to manipulate it. Any clues what that's about, and how I get rid of this overlayer of blue lines (they look like a big blue mesh of the area between the chest and the neck).

Those blue lines are probably the joints: they are only over-sized.
In Milkshape, go to File -> Preferences -> Misc and set the "Joint Size" to 0.0075
