Okay, so I'm still following one of the tutorials here, and I'm now here:

Quote

7. Open Sims04 and export the GMND file that corresponds in name with the GMDC file you exported.


Only, when I opened Sims04, and found the right file, there was no sign whatsoever of the export button, which had been nice and obvious for the previous step, and I've searched pretty much every clickable thing in sight, and can't find anything that might work.

Any help? I would be eternally grateful... *sighs*

I'm not normally such a n00b... :sad3:

One day I am sure I will be able to make a mesh! Theoretically I can't keep being put off it forever, can I?

The tutorial probably has a mistake, confusing export and extract.

The GMDC has an export button, that allows you to select a 3D format, such as ".OBJ" or ".SMD".

All objects, including GMDC and GMND, have available an interaction called extract. The difference is that extract saves an exact copy of a little part of your package file to a disk file. This allows you to move parts pieces from one package to another.

To make extract work, you RIGHT-click on the item in the resource list (the big list box in the center), and from the pop-up menu pick "extract" and then carefully navigate back to your working directory to save it.

Why don't you use the PJSE body mesh tool (if it's clothes, hair or accessories you are making)?  It saves all that opening files and looking for stuff.

Tools|PJSE|BodyMeshTool.   You can find out more about it under Help|Topics|PJSE Body Mesh Tool.  Basically it chops about 30-60 mins off the time taken to assemble all the resources manually.   Well it did for me, anyway, maybe it gets quicker when you're used to it Cheesy

With  the PJSE body mesh tool, findind the parts and putting them in a package takes 5 seconds at most, maybe less for the linking to the texture package. It's good to know the boring way, but this made my life much easier Cheesy

Dupheaul, you mention extracting the GMND: no export button, you need to just right-click the line in the top window and choose "extract" - same goes for all the other parts.
