I haven't had time to do the hair, I hope next week. But more importantly I don't think I thanked you for your help. Just one last thing. I like to backup the content I have. Does this retexture overwrite the original blond or make a new file. If it does is it in the folder where the hair mesh and textures are located. Thank you for being so sweet and answering my questions.
Heya! No problem, I love to help. ^-^ When you import the new retexture file into Bodyshop it will show up in your SavedSims folder as a bunch of numbers and letters followed by the name of the project you created for the hair (for example, 1e7b925f_newseaborntodie). Don’t worry, it won’t overwrite the original retexture files! Then when you’ve imported all of the retextures for each hair color into Bodyshop, you can delete the original retextures you downloaded - but make sure to keep the mesh!
If you don’t want your retextures to show up in the custom bin (the big asterisk in the hair section next to the colours), you can bin them so that they’ll be in the correct colour bins. I recommend using this program. Make sure you label all of your retexture files clearly so that you know which one is which! (There are also preview images available in that program when you click on a retexture file, in case you aren’t sure.) After that you can either keep them in SavedSims or stick them in your Downloads folder. I prefer keeping finished projects out of SavedSims, just keeps things neater I think. :)
Let me know if you need clarification of anything! Retexturing hairs can be confusing for beginners but you’ll get the hang of it eventually. :D
A couple walking through the arctic. Kaiyukan Aquarium, Osaka, Japan.
Hey all! Just letting you know that I’m alive and well. I went to the Osaka Kaiyukan Aquarium yesterday! It was fantastic and I took almost 800 pictures, whoo~ (Click on the picture for full-size.)
You have a sooo awesome blog! I fell in love with your objects and your wonderful screenshots! <3 Thank you for that you are doing! You raised my mood!
Aww, thank you so much, how sweet! You’ve raised my mood too! ^-^ I may not play Sims 3 but I think your screenshots are lovely as well. :D
(I MUST THERE IS NO OTHER ANSWER)
If you don't mind having a go at it that would be great. I'll give it a try but there are lot of files, big chance won't finish. I'm trying v2-maxis match. It was the only one that didn't specify photoshop, I use gimp. 2 other things. There is a black and white file that shows the hair pieces and a few black box images do I do anyting with them? And In S3 usually you retexture one age version and you can use for all ages. Does it work the same or must I do each age group individually
Oh, you shouldn’t need Photoshop for the V1 textures either, but those image files are smaller so they don’t fit every mesh depending on how big its textures are. The black and white images are the alpha files, so you would only fiddle with those if you wanted to change the shape of the hair. If the mesh is converted for all ages, you should only have to retexture one age and then copypaste it onto the rest of them. :) (Except for elders unless you don’t want them to go grey.)
Let me know if you have any more questions! :)
I would love to have the Cassandra Goth glasses that you mentioned in your latest hair download post :)
Sure thing! ^-^ Here you go:
Keep in mind that I made these when I first got into simming, so if they’re terrible that’s why! :P But you can put them on everyone besides toddlers, yay~
Happy simming! :D
Newsea Chihuahua and Weedflower look so nice. I really like your textures. There are two Newsea hairs that I like and are not really maxis match because of the blond, the other colours not the same type of Maxis match but fit in. SunsetGlow and Born to die. I know from S3 how retexture hair and I think (until I try lol) I can see what to do in Gimp with S2 but does it work to export the blond out with the bodyshop? And import when finished. Also where do you get textures from?
Thank you! I use textures by remisims, but unlike some other creators I prefer to use a mixture of all three versions of her textures (V1 | V2 | V3), plus her curly texture (here). I usually try to use V1 as much as I can because it’s shinier and my game isn’t entirely Maxis Match. :)
As for your retexturing question, yup, that makes perfect sense! Create a project in Bodyshop using the hair that you want to retexture, paste the textures over the existing image (make sure to do this for every age group!), save and reimport! It’s a pretty simple process but sometimes there are a lot of files to overwrite so it can be time-consuming.
Also, if you’d like I can take a crack at Sunset Glow and Born to Die. Always happy to add to my list of hairs to retexture! ^-^
You are amazing!!! (it's the anon who asked about editing the townies) Thank you so much and thank you to the anon who helped with the mod too! But thanks to you for not making me feel stupid or like I was bothering you, haha! I know how TS3 simblrs can get when someone asks a simple question, so thank you so much! I need to make a simblr just so I'm notified when I get your posts! :P Haha! <3 Thanks again!
You are very welcome, anon! :) I’m never bothered by questions about the game, don’t worry. Most Sims 2 players are happy to help if you ask them a question. Sorry to hear that Sims 3 players aren’t as welcoming. :( But I’m glad I could help! ^-^ <3
you’re soooo cute *-*
Don’t be fooled, Sim!Me is 10x more adorable than real life. :P
Who is that beautiful sim!?!? (it’s me)
- Remi’s (remisims) textures and colours (including wavy - Northern Star)
- Familied, binned, grey linked to black
- Hair bobble colours stolen off of @keoni-chan’s retexture
P.S. If anyone needs some neon Cassandra Goth glasses I made a butt-ton when I was but a wee fetus so request away if you’d like!
