I have some gorgeous Sims 1 skins by Sketch I want to play with. But I would like to make them into Superstar High Fashion buyables. They are non-standard numbering, for example B0S6mafitlgt_ssk_firefighter. Can someone please walk me through runumbering it? I keep finding new things I had forgotten sad I have File Maid but she only seems to work right with the ones with standard numbering?)

It might be time to visit with the Moon Sims Tour Guides!



This tutorial page shows how to edit the gizzards of the files to fix filenames:
http://moonsims.asi.org/tech/fix-filenames-3.html

This one talks about all the files that make up a complete sim:
http://moonsims.asi.org/tech/how-to-make-archive-3.html

Item 2 on this page shows the breakdown of the filename:
http://moonsims.asi.org/tech/install-new-skin.html

So does this page:
http://moonsims.asi.org/tech/how-to-skin-13.html

Failing all else, you might enjoy the interaction between Carla and Caddy in that last one, especially since we've had a paucity of stories these past few weeks.

Thank you, I will. I love those stories... and I am in a downloading mood so here goes my Simshost account.

(Need the skin renumber for a Sim who wants to be a SuperStar singing fireman...)

That's something I have never really got worked out for Sims 2, the custom careers, and I used to love making those. I'll do some Sims 1 ones instead smile I know there's a tut on MTS2 but I bashed my head against it for weeks.

oh and on this page http://moonsims.asi.org/tech/how-to-make-archive-3.html there is a li nk to a tut mentioned there by one Mary Baker, a very fine skinner, that used to be on The Wage of Sim - does it exist anywhere nowadays? I thought I had backed it up but it's gone the way of much of my Sims 1 stuff.

Long ago when Richard told me that he was going to close the site, I did make a backup. We hadn't settled on the rules for what was OK to have on a public site and what's not before Richard disappeared from sight, but I found the original files lurking in the dusty archives of the Sim City Community College.

The site is a mess, but here's that tutorial page: http://sccc.simshost.com/wos/h_wardrobe.html

Just use "H" instead of "F."

Aw. I don't need to renumber his skin now...





crybaby

That kitchen is jinxed. He was the fourth Sim to die there. And he didn't even live there! Occupational hazard I guess.

But thanks, I see how it works now I think.
