18  Simmers' Paradise / Content Creation & Recoloring Help / Did I understand this correctly???? on: January 04, 2007, 10:43:53 am
Say I downloaded items that I found that I thought were compatible but later discovered that they don't show up like what I saw in the picture examples that you provided.  Does that mean they were created with an EP that I don't have?
If so then this tutorial is a big help.  I've discovered alot of recolors but some of them have be recolored with the Pets EP, I think  & I really want the outfit but my poor little computer can't handle all the EPs I already have let alone adding more EPs to acquire some of the outfits that I want to enjoy.  And If I understand correctly I can simply make this modification without asking permission from the original artist.  Did I get that right?
If so than thank you, thank you, thank you.  If not thank you just the same.

Hi. I’ve received several questions about how to my skins can be “shower proof” and conserve like Marvine-Beosboxboy’s bodybuilder (or others) in the shower, etc. My skins are made over Maxis’ ones for everybody who have not downloaded those meshes can use them. It you want to make them "shower proof", you have to do this [You have this in Spanish and French below]:
1.- You have to download, first, the skin you want and also one of the skins you can find here, in Insimenator, made, for example, by Wirelessguy or Kavar*; that of you want the sim in shower appears. Put them in “My documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads”.
*[For example,     by Kavar >>;
and     by Wirelessguy >> ].
2.- Once downloaded, open Body Shop to “create elements”, then to “create genetics” and “skintone”.
3.- Select the skintone you want to make “shower proof” (1) and make a new project exporting it (2); name this project like you want (for example, AAA) (3) and accept it (4). Then, close the project (5).
4.- Once closed it you are again on the screen to make a new project. Begin it going again to “create elements”-“create genetics”- “skintones” but now load up the shower-proof skin and create a new project. Give it a new name (BBB), but now do not cancel it; let it on your screen. [You have to do, then, exactly the same steps before except the last one (5)].
    If you want, now you can write the words to describe the new skin you are creating (“BBB shower proof”, for instance).
5.- Without closing body shop and with this second project (BBB) on the screen:
a) open Windows Explorer and go to "My documents\EA Games\Projects\AAA (the name you've given the first skin project)”. You have to copy all the “.bmp” files of the skin (all of them except one).
b) Then, go to "My documents\EA Games\Projects\BBB” (the second project that in this moment you have still open in Body Shop) and paste these ".bmp" files over.
c) If you want to have an specific icon of this skin in Body Shop and in the game to identify it, in this project (BBB), open “swatch” file with a photoshop program to recolour, put an image or whatever you want and save it.
6.- Now, go back to Body Shop and refresh it (1); you would see the new skin and –if you have done it- also the “swatch” icon. Export it to the game (2). Next time you open your game, the skin would be there.
(7).- To verify the skin is rightly exported to the game, you can clone or create a new sim in Body Shop and put him the new skin.
I hope this indications will help. Sorry by my English, and I hope it works. Thank you everybody for your interest and, once more –always–, to Marvine & Beosboxboy for their incredible meshes and also to Wirelessguy & Kavar.
Thank you, merci, danke

This requires SimPE (q.v. and a bit of patience.
You will discover the name of the Sim's character file by:
1. Start SimPE
2. Tools >> Neighbourhood >> Neighbourhood Browser
3. Select the Neighbourhood from the pictures
4. Tools >> Neighbourhood >> Sim Browser
5. Scroll to find your Sims, look for the file name in the File Name column
6. Write down the file name & Sim name
Close SimPE
OK let's assume you were looking for Joe Sim in Pleasantview
You followed the instructions I just gave and found his character file was N001_User00015.package
The thing about the names are simple:
Begins with.................................Neighbourhood folder
N001_ .......................................Pleasantview
N002_ .......................................Strangetown
N003_ .......................................Veronaville
N004_ .......................................User made
N005_ .......................................User made
N006_ .......................................User made
Pleasantview is located here:
My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Neighbourhoods\N001
notice how N001 is the name of the folder?
The Characters are located here:
My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Neighbourhoods\N001\Characters
Browse to the character folder for your neighbourhood, double click N001_User00015.package.
Once you locate the character file for the Sim you want to change, you need to open it with SimPE, look for the AgeData, and alter the stretch (dtSingle) value

Make sure you get the right AgeData for your Sim.
Look at the age (dtUInteger):
0x00000004 = teen -- usually stretch (dtSingle) = 0.94
0x00000008 = adult -- stretch (dtSingle) = 1.00
0x00000010 = elder -- stretch (dtSingle) = 1.00
NOTA BENE: In some versions of Windows comma (,) is the decimal point, if this is what you normally use, then 0,94 - 1,00 - 1,00 etc
Remember to COMMIT your changes & save.
The value 1.0 is supposed to reflect an average height, so roughly 5'10" or 1,78 metres.
The value 0.94 is supposed to reflect an average height of 5'5" or 1,67 m.
If you wanted professional basketball player sim, a good value would be stretch 1.2
It depends on the stretch value - some are worse than others. Maxis defined the animations for sims of pre-defined heights.
In all most of them are off by "livable" amounts that film-makers can over-come with camera angles. But if you show little or no restraint, you can have a 0,5 m adult hug a 6,0 m adult with ease... just expect it to look weird.
Gné? but you have SimPE, maybe you didn't let it set itself as the default programme to open these file types during install?
Gné? but you have SimPE, maybe you didn't let it set itself as the default programme to open these file types during install?
Sina, of you install Crossover Office (may not work on Mac) or maybe Darwine (very beta WinE for Darwin) you might be able to run SimPE
If not now, certainly some time in the future
  • Thank you for creating such a wonderful tutorial.
  • But, what if I want to change the height while in bodyshop? Since my system doesn't support the game very well anymore.  Yes, I'm gonna upgrade eventually. But for now I use mostly my bodyshop.
Again thank you, I will use this once for all the ones that I have in game already created.  It sure will beat having to boot up the cheat everytime.
