  1. I don’t follow anyone in particular for image editing (or sims modding), I just type my search and try to find someone whose not a professional because their advice is just for… well, professionals and doesn’t necessarily apply to this game.
  2. Probably you also replaced or deleted some other files when changing the thumbnail, be sure to only replace the one with the tag ‘THUM’ (PNG format, 256x256). The process is the same I described in the "making anime paints" thread.
  3. I remember a dude called JoshWhathisname with the same problem, never heard of him again… wait a minute it was me the whole time! 😵 I’m not going to lie, frustration and Sims 3 are tied to each other like jam and toast, bees and flowers, google and spying on you, etc. What you experienced is the same frustration me and countless people felt the first time we tried our luck at modding. So the only advice I can give is have patience, 99.9999993% of modders don’t magically learn everything the first time (or the 50th time after that). It took me a lot of time at the beginning but nowadays the tools are way better and there’s people that can help (just don’t go overboard: small steps, one problem at a time). Instead of using TSRW swap it for s3oc which can clone anything from your game files, after installing or extracting it you need to configure two things: the folder(s) where your game is installed (plus expansions if apply), and your “creator name” which can be anything you want. Restart the app and go to Tools / Search (Cloning / CAS also works but it will first scans and show everything.you.have.installed and can be overwhelming). On the box write ‘stockings’, then select ‘Resource name’ and then down below select ‘CAS part’, press search and wait a second or two). The one we need is ‘afAccessoryStockings_cottonFull’, select it and in the right panel press ‘Clone or fix’ and a new section will appear on the left and on the right we will now be able to change categories, for now leave it alone we need to be sure that ‘Include thumbnails’ is selected and also ‘Renumber/rename internally’, also ‘Enable compression’. Press ‘Start’ and select the location were you want to save your cloned “full stockings”. What s3oc did is clone the stockings, meaning generate a new id or “serial number” using your creator name as reference and included all its textures and other components organized neatly inside a package. You can install it in your game and it will show it along the original without a problem, here’s the one I created: JoshQ_afAccessoryStockings_cottonFull_49BBBAD1.package The idea is to modify this image (I used s3pe to open the .package, right-click on it and select ‘Save DDS…’) to make the pantyhose larger or make any other change, after the image is edited we need to swap the texture, here I explain how to do it using s3pe. For editing I recommend dxtbmp which will allow us to separate the alpha and re-import it when we’re done and pain.net for editing, both are free and can replace photoshop for this kind of project. The image I attached some post above will help as reference for the height. Give it a try (after taking a rest first).

    One thing I admit my shoes are lacking is in the texture department, literally I use one shade of gray and even after increasing the polycount the way illumination works in The Sims 3 makes my CC look “flat”, or at least that’s how I perceive it (patterns help but not enough).

     

    In the past I avoided generating textures for one main reason: The texture space for shoes is extremely small so details get lost or blurred at best and I don’t want to make 2k/4k textures to compensate nor make them by hand.

     

    So I’ve been experimenting trying to find a way to add just the right amount of detail to textures without resulting in a pixelated mess, with some luck you’ll see the results in a month or two.

  6. The game started as a MMO which was later repurposed so after all this time it doesn’t surprise me EA still hasn’t been able to replicate features from S3 and S2. S3 heel support came relatively late so maybe once EA stops releasing updates it will be easier to find ways to circumvent limitations.
  7. Exactly, when I released the Impossible Feet 2.0 I mentioned my intention to remake some older models; so far I've remade Gala, Virenti, Engel Besta, Paradisi and Devi along with Rhiannon. You’re probably referring to my old Engel Besta edit plus peeptoes, look closer the link is still alive (inside the spoiler). As a sidenote. Old and newer versions won’t interfere with each other so you’re free to use whichever you like the most, be aware, I only give support for newer stuff which can be identified by the golden frame: The rest were uninstalled from my game and archived with some exceptions mostly accessories.
