Recolour Inge's Reservable Desks
« on: December 04, 2016, 12:25:27 AM »
I use these desks a lot, but I hate the colours - the original desk looks so much better with, for example, Michelle's AL Wood recolours - and I wondered if there was something I could do in SimPE to make the reservable desks accept the recolours available?  Has anyone ever tried this (or any other of Inge's hacked objects) with any success?

I think if you slaved Inge's desk to the original desk, it should use all the recolors of the original desk.  BeosBoxBoy swore by MsBarrow's repository tutorial.  Lemme find the link.....

This tutorial is aimed at users who already understand how to create their own custom objects, and create recolours for their objects, but don’t yet understand how to use the textures from one object across multiple objects. If you don’t know what I’m talking about when I say “use the object workshop” or “in the resource tree”, this tutorial is not for you!

Thanks miros1, I did check the tutorial out, but this was on Page 2, and put me off going any further, since I don't understand how to create objects or recolours.  Also, once I opened the darned thing, I had to use the task manager to get rid of it, there is no obvious way of closing it down!

I guess I should learn to repository... also should learn Chris Hatch's texture reference method for clothes and skintones so you only need tiny files to link a new mesh to a ton of textures!

Even better was Heather Castillo's method of repositories which worked for a lot of different sets (Sim Freaks2), which I think was a forerunner to Sims 3.  Unfortunately, she stopped working on it when Ikea wiped everything from her (unbacked-up) hard drive and she lost interest.  But what she did do was brilliant!
