Well, I know it’s an old game, but it’s still much fun. Many people received the Complete Edition when it was free on Origin, so why not to bring a bit of life into it and have some fun 😀
But first things first. You run the game and see pixels that take up half of your screen. You try to change the resolution, but no, there’s only one option available 800 x 600 and the game is runnng on the lowest settngs possible. Chances are, that you are runninng Sims 2 on a computer that is less than 10 years old. But the game doesn’t recognize your video card and thinks you’re using something much too shitty to run the game. Continue reading
The fact is, I wanted to have a girl demon vampire in my game, so I started looking for the right CC. I thought I might just as well share what I learned.
Below you’ll find some ways to make your sims babies and todlers look much better, than the game allows normally 😀
I’ve managed to create my first CC (get it here) and I was asked by a friend, how I did it, because he wanted to make custom paintings too. So I thought I’d make this simple tutorial.As this tutorial is really picture heavy, I’ve also prepared a pdf version of it, that you can download and view on your computer. Get it HERE.
First you need to get three things:
- Graphic program able to edit dds files. There are plugins to do it for gimp and photoshop, but I use paint.net, because it’s so simple and intuitive, that it makes the whole process a lot easier.
- TSR Workshop – just hit the “download latest version button”
- Picture you want to have as the custom painting. Best to use your own creation.
Ok, so first install paint.net and TSR Workshop. Once you have them up and running, open TSRW and click “Create a new project”. Than click on the “object” icon and hit Next.
Ok, so to make pretty (or scary) sims, you’ll need makeup. Not only for the lipstick or eyshadow, which is kind of obvious, but especially to give your sims much more realistic appearance. How? – By using makeup eyebags, shadows, pores and things like that, which add much detail to your sims faces.
