I jumped another hurdle in object recoloring. I learned how to make stuff transparent! YAHOO!!!

I had put a request in over at Black Pearl to have Solander's (Pimp My Sims) Kitchen01 table and chair recolored. And, I wanted the glass inlay to match the recolors I asked for. i.e. Black and white. It sat there for a bit until finally, I was playing around in GIMP and learned on my own.

This would be the black set.

If you look at the backs of the chairs, you can see right through them.
Get a load of that floor.......

This is the white set.

You can see through the in lay on the table.

More fun to be had!!

Thank you!

I did not make the floor. I'm not that talented.......I got that over at TSR.

I tried a few different things out. I did a few recolors of the chair seat.
Two to match the black table.


Then I did two to match the wallpaper to match the white table.


And, I tried to do a wood recolor. But, I screwed up on the texture.

I donĀ“t know if you want my opinion but I give it anyway. LOL

The black set is beautiful!

The green and white set is awesome! (My favorite colour.)

The wooden table is awesome but the chairs would need some other colour maybe yellow or orange....... autumn colours...

Thank , Sugah!

If anybody was curious, here's the changes I made to Charles. If you look at his eyess and lips, you'll see the difference.

Before:


After:

I really hated changing him in any way. Why tamper with perfection?!!? But, those eyes and lips had to go.

That's basically all I did. Tempted to give him different colored eyes. But, changed my mind.

The biggest change I gave his was, when I was in BodyShop after I downloaded him, I gave him a hairy Skintone. I told the creater what I did, and he loved it. Techically, he didn't even come with a skintone. When he's in BodyShop, it's a Maxis SkinTone.

I rather like the new and improved Charles, Ed.
Those eyes are just perfect for him and add a lot to his overall appeal.

Thank you!

I think I went through about seven different eyes before I settled on those. Not all Sims have to have blue eyes.

Those eyes almost seem to match him. Hair, beard, eyebrows. Then, I managed to find him a different pair of lips. Wish I could remember where I found them or got them.

But, I had to change him.

I absolutely agree with you.
The brown definitely suits him. I don't know who created those eyes, but they look terrific.
I like his freckles, too, btw.
The lip change is rather subtle, to my eyes.
Is that what you were going for? A subtle change?

Shady Intense Eyes over at MTS2

Yes, a rather subtle change on his lips. They looked too much like lipstick. I hated it.

The freckles came with him. I used them on TJ also. Might be hard to tell on him.

This is one of the features of Decorgirl and Adele's new Custom Content/Hack collaberation.

With the cigarette, you can hold it two different ways: Masculine or feminine. As you can see, Michael is holding it, masculine.

TJ is doing the exact same thing.



I have a request for Sugah. The couch that is behind TJ in the first picture, can you make me four different floors using that color of the couch? The four I would like is, wood, tile, stone and carpet.

Use the darker red on the right side of the picture.

Thank you!

EDIT: Sugah, read the next post

You know, I sat here thinking. One of the reasons I learned how to recolor Custom Content was, so I wouldn't have to ask other people to do it for me. Still can't do Maxis stuff. I gave up a long time ago. Pictures don't bother me. Anyway, I downloaded HomeCrafter, and decided to give it a try.

This is the flooring to match the couch behind TJ. I think it turned out a bit too dark.


Then, I found a pattern over at, InspirationGallery.com and gave it a try.


I made them 1x1 and, they cost 0. I made sure to list them in the right catagory for sound purposes.

Wallpaper I haven't ventured into yet. I'm not even so sure I want to try. I was reading a tutorial over at MTS2 and it looks very involved, especially with designs. OY!

Ed, the floors look GREAT! Are you kidding?
I especially love the red tile one. I would love that in my game.
Are you going to offer it at SIMply Edward?

I love the black, red and white together.
Looks terrific, sir.

Great job!

Bravo! Send Flowers Bravo!

You convinced me. I'll add both of them later today.

I'm working on something else right now.

But, they will be up for download.

I still feel like crap, and kind of forced myself into playing the game. I was playing Veronaville and TJ.

I gotta "Puff" his cheeks out a tad. Looks too skinny.

Here's a better picture of Charles. I think with this one, you can tell what I meant by his lips. These look so much better.


TJ enjoying his new BMW.


And, this is what they're all about.

I enjoy my Sims. Wouldn't give them up for anything.

I put in a WCIF over at Black Pearl. What I was looking for was, some books. I got those Cube Cabinets and I was looking for the books so I could give off the illusion of a bookcase. These are not readable. Just deco.

Charles lives next door.

And, this is my attempt at using OMSP's

The wallet, clipboard and open book are in their right place. Everything else is sitting on a OMSP.

Then, I have this!

I love OMSPs, esp when I'm feeling in the mood to go nuts with decorating.
They really open up some nice possibilities, don't they, Ed?

I like that you combined some of my wall art (Swirl) with Hunter's (Baila) to decorate the bedroom.
Thank you for your support, as always.

Are you feeling any better, hon? I hope so.

I'm perking up a little.

Sore throat seems to be gone. Now, I just have to get over this sensation of always being tired. I think the heat plays a big factor in it.

That was my little foray into OMSP's. They're actually kind of neat. I have a coffe cup sitting on a half wall. No picture of it. But, it's there.

I made a nice little combo of your's and Hunter's pictures. I also found a few more odds and ends. I'll try and get a few pictures.

I had to take this picture. I've never seen it before that I'm aware of. TJ standing here with his arms crossed. Just after I snapped the picture, his started rocking back and forth on his heels. I thought it was funny.

It's like he just happened to walk into the room and decided to stand there and observe Charles getting caught up in his puter game. Cool capture, Ed, and TJ looks gorgeous in that ensemble.

I like the way you did the dining room floor, btw, with the mix of your red wood and white.
