Misc. Sunset Valley Makeovers [Nov. 4th, 2012|04:34 pm]
[Tags|, , ]
[Current Mood |amusedamused]

I've been playing around with Sunset Valley and I've made over some community lots I'll eventually use in my Sweet Valley, my CAW project. If I ever finish terrain painting, that is.



Lots of benches and parking lots! YAY!Collapse )

Pre-Fabulous [Jun. 19th, 2012|12:01 am]

Guys, I'm on a roll. This is a makeover (aka a completely new house) of the Pre-Fabulous trailer in Sunset Valley. I added some rooms because I didn't feel like making another starter. It's an inexpensive family home now. It has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and you can toss 4+ sims in it. It's basically ready to play (I think), but of course the shiny stuff is missing because it's only pre-fabulous. It's obvious. ;)

Oh look, I'm actually NOT dead! I've been playing The Sims 3 and I really like it - except when my sims go outside and look like monsters. I'm currently trying to build my own town, not from scratch though. I don't have the patience for that. (Also, the chances I would screw up something are definitely high). 
I thought I'd share this starter lot. I hope I did everything right, it's my first TS3 upload ever. :)

The Sims 3 Basegame Spam [Mar. 23rd, 2012|09:56 pm]

Oh, hi! It's been a while, I know. Life and stuff, the same old story. Also, hey!, I've gotten into The Sims 3. Really. I like it, even though I was like ugh no what's this shit TS2 4eva. It's crazy how things change! I also got myself a smartphone, can you believe that? I would like, bury my phone somewhere and totally forget it because pfff, I don't need it anyway, message me on Facebook, seriously, I hate phones. And now I have a smartphone. And yes, I do carry it everywhere I go. And check my e-mails all the time like a totally cool businessperson. Can you actually believe that? And yes, I did uninstall The Sims 2 (the fact that most of my TS3>TS2 conversion attempts failed miserably doesn't have anything to do with that, no). I don't know, I just got tired of it.
Anyways.
I come bearing pictures. I've been playing random sims to figure out how the game works. You've probably already seen most of them on Tumblr. Nothing special, really.

TS3 > TS2 Object Conversion: Some stupid questions. [Feb. 16th, 2012|06:58 pm]

POW! POW! SCREEK! I' m trying to learn how to convert TS3 Maxis objects for TS2! I got a bit confused, though. I really hope someone can help me out... Here's what I did, basically:
  • I cloned a TS2 base game chair (the Simple Seat one). There's no actual reason why I chose that one. I know it's probably not correct, but I thought any basa game chair would do.
  • I extracted the TS3 chair (and its textures) using TSR Workshop. I did my thing in Milkshape -- I imported both meshes, moved/resized the TS3 chair to match the TS2 proportions and deleted the TS2 mesh (group) when I was done. The converted chair only has one group. Does that make sense?
  • In SimPE, I replaced the GMDC. I can see the converted chair in the preview, so everything seems fine. 
Problems:
GUID Registrations seem to be disabled? I followed Echo's advice to get a GUID. Where do you guys get yours from? Is there any other method?
The object texture won't show up. I'm not quite sure what to do with the UV Mapper. Does it make sense to load the already mapped model (it's a Maxis chair), save it again and re-import it into Milkshape as "mapped mesh"? I feel so stupid right now. But I'm motivated, huzzah! Thank you so much in advance.
