    Do we need to have the sims 1 downloaded in order to upload (/our own) CC chairs?

    Note, i already have a sims 1 chair downloaded.

    The transmogithingy gets the object files from the expansions you have installed.

    so that means the answer is yes, you do have to have expansions?

    That kinda sucks, not everyone still has it. I still have the Complete Collection, just not installed. Guess thats what Im going to do now. Thats really crappy for the people that dont have it anymore, though.
     
  9. Hmmm... me thinks you might not have to. We could probably still download zips/.iffs from sites such as TSR, Sim Gedohns, etc., that still carry Sims 1 stuff. In that case, you shouldn't have to re-install all expansion packs to extract the .iffs - although this would be the only way to obtain the original game .iffs. Maybe the original object files from Sims 1 could be provided to us by the devs/Maxis WITHOUT us having to re-install it? A site download somewhere? or maybe they could ask Stever @ TSR to host the files for download.. This would be a great idea..

    Also, this brings up another issue of cc/3rd party objects being allowed, i.e., what is allowed and what isn't. They will soon be allowing us to create our own base meshes, etc., which means 3rd party objects... In that case, the possibilities are endless! I'm looking forward to when we can create our own clothes, hair meshes, etc.! [​IMG]

    Btw Majdi - the Transmogrifier is trying to find Sims 1. You would have to have it installed for it to work. However, you don't necessarily need the Transmogrifier to create cc in TSO, since the crafting bench is now a 'built-in transmogrifier'. All you need are the .iff files and a photo editing program..

    I haven't had the Sims 1 installed for about 4 years and no longer have the disc...I'm sure there are many in the same situation...apparently other than the bitmaps, this is the end of making custom content for us...I already bought and installed a new video card to be able to continue playing in EALand and I'm already gonna be excluded from one 'improvement'...how wonderful [​IMG]
     
  12. Not necessarily, Crackpot... Like I said above, you simply need to download some nice chair .iff files (put in your My Documents\EA Games\EA-Land\uploads\chairs folder) and some nice color images to use for recolors (in My Documents\EA Games\EA-Land\uploads\images)...

    Hopefully the original game .iffs will be made available for download, or maybe those who still have S1 installed can file share with Maxis' permission? lol... [​IMG]

    Not only that, but one of the devs posted on the blog that they will be putting up a tutorial for making stuff, including the programs to do so.
    Maybe somebody who knows how to drive the blog can post a link?

    Does anyone know why people are seeing old dining room chairs instead of the cc chairs i see?
     
  16. Monkeybear

    Monkeybear Guest

    The old chairs are the default custom chair
     
  17. legscroft

    legscroft Guest

    ok, but what do people have to do in order to see the custom content instead of those chairs? i see the custom content chair i made, they see the old dining chairs.

    Good to know. [​IMG] Im going to try it today and i'll see how it goes..

    It took me restarting my game 3 times for the chairs I made to show up for me. Others could see them before I could.

    I recolored a chair with good comfort, and I spent the, what I consider an outrageous price, to get it into the game and sadly it seems to have reverted back to little comfort. I hope this is just a bug.
     
  22. None of my chairs have comfort at all. Just fun. lol. The approval process is taking longer than 5 minutes. You will see old chairs until yours are approved.

    I'm done draining the economy for today. I'll leave this CC thing to the experts.

    I need help finding the chairs within the sims files..

    File Path Anyone?
     
  24. Guest

    Guest Guest

    I would think they are within the far file here: C:\Program Files\Maxis\The Sims\GameData\Objects

    Haven't used the Tmog in a long time, so I'm a bit rusty, sorry. Never used it much anyway.
     
  25. Guest

    Guest Guest

    Yeah! Thats where I thought they would be too.. but no luck.
     
  26. Guest

    Guest Guest

    From memory of 5+ years ago the chairs are in the various .far files and transmogrifier basically scans the far files and lists the .iff files within them? Then you select your specific chair to have transmogrifier export it so you can edit and modify it.

    I uploaded a chair and after reseting my house a few times and spending some time at other houses, my chair appeared to others correctly. However, it was approved almost immediately.

    My chair has only fun too, no comfort at all.

    I reinstalled Sims1 today so that I could play around with chairs, but I've been trying to download the transmogithingymajig for ages and keep getting a proxy error [​IMG]

    And in case anyone didn't see it yet, Thrill made an awesome guide to customising a chair on the wiki
