Excellent tutorial, Gayle! I always use UV Mapper Pro when recoloring, especially for slaved objects and doing single bedding. Being able to see the texture on the object makes a world of difference!

Thanks Kate  :hug:

Also good if you making several recolour sets - you can pre-prepare all the pngs and then churn out all the simpe recolour packages in seconds afterwards lol

Thank you, Gayle!  You make it sound easy. :blowkiss  Do you happen to have any tips on the overlay method in Photoshop?

Oh I am so glad! I am totally rubbish at writing tutes, and yours are always so easy to follow! Thanks Gayle!

Pam, I will still look at those 2 meshes...

:yagami  Gayle to the rescue again!  Thank you!  (We need a trumpeting smiley, dang it!)  Would I be pushing my luck if I requested making the crib bedding in this set pull Maxis textures?  :))  I tried the repository technique on something else and crashed my game.

Thank you, too, Issy!

Sorry about the double post, but I finally did it!!!  I linked the crib in this set to Maxis crib bedding, without crashing my game!  :celebrate  Now when I recolor it, no one's Downloads folder will be stuffed too badly.  I just need to find another tut for changing GUIDs.

A couple questions:  Is the repository technique basically the same for two custom objects?  And would it be better to link the crib frame to the single bed frame, or vice versa?

I took a look at these 2 objects. No matter how you wan't to do it you will need to remap if you want to keep 2 wood colors, because the textures for the two objects are not similar.

If you want only one wood color then I would recommend slaving to SDA dresser chambre. There is already a lot of objects slaved to that wood and there is a lot of available recolors - among others all the 64 Amystefinix ones, a lot in my folder and a lot from engelchen at All4Sims as well. That will definately save a lot of work for you and a lot of space in your folders as well.

If you need help with the remapping anyway, just ask me for help.

Kind regards, Helle
