Could a mod or admin move this to the Mac users support-forum? I think I should have posted it there in the first place Smiley

Mi-chii, I don't know of any software available for the Mac that will get you past the meshing stage.  All of the software for actually getting the mesh into the game is for PC. As far as I know, there is no parallel to SimPE for the Mac; most creators who use Macs limit themselves to Body Shop recolours, or have either a dual-booting Mac Intel or a separate PC that they use for object creation/recolouring.

With that stated, here you go:

Cinema4D: http://www.maxon.net/

form-Z: http://www.formz.com/

MeshLab: http://meshlab.sourceforge.net/

Well, it could be possible to find a friend with a PC to get the meshes into the game, wouldn't it? I'll have to look around and see. Thank you BBB!

cauquen, making the sims totally naked is a topic that should only be addressed on the adult site.  Please show some respect for the rules of this forum and keep in mind that this is an all-ages forum.

If you are having trouble downloading files from this site - it is likely because you are using the Safari browser, please see this post for downloading tips using Safari browser: http://www.insimenator.org/showthread.php?t=27964

Cauquen, I have a Mac to and couldn't get .rar files until BBB showed me UnRarX which is free. Sometimes it can't unrar the file, in that case just redownload

Simz2Luvr22 - I have been rackong my brain t remember the name of the programme for Mac OSX that strips the meta-information out of RAR files, meta-information can be a sort of text message like a comment or even a password protection -- in this case the software would only delete the comment type of meta-information.

But in addition to Stuffit and UnRarX I have recently discovered Zipeg and it is much more robust, flexible and has fewer complaints that either Stuffit and UnRarX.  HugeLunatic also recommened The Unarchiver in another related thread, and too is much more robust than either Stuffit or UnRarX

I have never had a problem downloading any files zip or rar format. I however have always used the Mozilla Search Engine rather than Safari and had great success with it.

I have found the stuffit expander provided on the Mac is more than sufficient, most times I have had a problem un-stuffing a program the problem has been with the zip file not fully being there due to a poor connection when downloading. When re-downloaded they unzip fine.

I do have to add for anyone not yet aware Mac Unpac is definitely worth looking at! There are still some sim packages it won't recognize, but it will definitely allow you to install some you previously couldn't. Definitely a step in the right direction! If you don't already have it go back one page and scroll down Megativity13 has a link posted.

I was just adding additional info to the comment by simz2luvr22 for caquen. Just some additional options, as it appears caquen is still having problems with rar files.

Jayde lady, please try to stay on topic. We all like to have fun, which is fine,  but this has nothing to do with the thread topic

First, try and type out your post properly. Then, try and explain properly. I didn't understand anythin of your problem, and how is this related to MESHING on a Mac?
