Colour Actions Decrapified + Reference Images

Something that I have been intending to do for quite some time...

...or rather, was asked of me aaaages ago, and it's only now I've got around to doing so *blush*. It wasn't as irritating as I thought it would be, once I quit re-building them in a stupidly slow manner.

(Also it was a chance to get rid of the embarassingly stupid mess that lay beneath the surface. What the hell was I thinking with that?)

These *should* work right down to Ye Olde PS 6 as I've managed to avoid using any of the tools that changed throughout the versions, but as I no longer have any older versions to test on, this is entirely theoretical.

And even if you don't have an old version of Photoshop you should download these. I've tweaked some of the colours and hopefully burninated some of the worst pixelisation.

Under here, because the pictures are huge )

Shiny new colours - wip...ish



So, I filled in the gaps left from what I showed you...

And then I went a bit crazy )

Help?

Would a couple of you wonderful people care to test out my daffodil meshes for me? So far they are working perfectly well within my game, but after rebuilding the packages about six times for my various stupidities (everything from forgetting the shadows, to trying to work out just why the slave meshes won't accept recolours) I'd like to have someone else try it in a totally different game.

The zip should contain five files, four mesh files and one (uncompressed) recolour. The meshes are master/slaved to the best of my ability and should pick up the recolour. I'd just like to know whether they a) show up as they should and b) if they look alright, as in there are no terrible graphical flaws

(insert standard warning about using files made by an incompetent n00b) :)

ETA: The shadow issue mentioned here is now fixed, thanks so much villamirabelle!

Dear Self, part two.

They don't tell you to change the GUIDs for nothing, you arse.

XD

That fixed however, I am pretty sure that I now have six working clutter meshes of my making in game, five of which I believe to be appropriately scaled. I don't know what went wrong with the sixth. I think I got this repository thing working, though I am not sure if I have done something wrong in my laziness - is it okay to clone the rest of your slave objects from the first, manually done one? The clones of the slave object were already linked to the master for me, and it all worked in my game but, you know, I tend to make a total berk of myself over things like that.

I shall inflict you all with pictures tomorrow, once I am awake and fix the one bizzarely huge mesh. I'm gonna try (ha!) and get these done by next week, partly so that I have time to do some other stuff, but mostly because according to the snippy little email that our isp sent us, we are *this* close to going over the data limit and capping the interwebs and that, would be a Very Bad Thing.

Off to bed with me before I incoherently spam you lot any more :)

Har har har




I have meshed an object. It appears in game, and I managed to fix the wtf-worthy alpha issue that was making me headdesk around 6pm, and without screaming for help and flinging myself on the mercy of the first competent person I saw online XD

This makes me more happy then I should be.

That said, I think it's a little too big perhaps? I am not very well aquainted with that which are daffodils (they don't grow well up here, I think we only managed one, one year back when I was twelve) so thus I am not exactly sure just how big they are.

(Apologies for the dodgy hand-holding there, but I didn't have any cc in game)

So, thoughts? Suggestions? Halp!? XD

Now to try and turn this bastard into a master/slave object thing. Wish me luck :D

Dear Self.

When attempting to test an object, it does occasionally help to ensure that you have actually put the object in the downloads folder,

No love,
Me.

So perhaps I can be a teeny bit over ambitious?

So much so that I kinda burnt myself out for a while there :P That, coupled with various RL bullshittery (ie, jobseeking, various family members with various heath issues - everyone is fine thankfully, but damn, DNW - and suchlike) leads to absent me.

(it's likely now that I find that nobody noticed my absence and I have just revealed myself as a self important arse. but hey :P)
And so Aelia pontificates under the cut )

Stuff

Overlockers are awesome. That is all.

(So is the teacher there too, she is (hopefully) going to help me with a 1950's dress pattern I purchased from Etsy a while ago, and was made of photocopied fail.

...

OKAY, yes, I am going to be attempting to make my rockabilly dress IRL for me to wear okay? WANT TO MAKE SOMETHING OF IT?? )

Tutorial coming, soon as I either work out WTF to do about pictures (yeah, I know some of mine have died too, but you think I keep the original files backed up? Nooo, I delete them soon as they upload. Fail Aelia, fail.) or get enraged and make it into a downloadable html file. 

Off to bed for me, for I should not be writting chatty journals at 12.08 am, particularly after a long day.

MOAR Androgeny pjs

So I continue on tonight with the posting of meshes totally stolen and mashed together by me to create something more usable for the androgeny mesh.

(By something usable, I really mean something that can have textures copied and pasted on without all this tedious mucking about in hyperspace photoshop :) )



This one contains absolutely nothing made/editted by me, as I have simultaneously yoinked (again) Pooklet's edit of the top, Gelydh's sleepless child mesh with morphs added by Yuichen and JenW's retextures slapped on.

(For some irritating reason I had the maxis feet version in my game rather than the sexy feet. Argh)

See the four colours I c&pied over,

Download the colours here

And the meshes, either

Sexy Feet
Maxis Feet

I would have had all these posted sooner, but in a shocking turn of events, people have been inviting me places.

And in a further shocking turn of events I have been going. The end is nigh folks. :D

Retro Swimwear Redone



Done a while ago, as a request for someone on GoS, I decided, while clearing out my downloads folder that it was about time that I redid the colours, and added morphs. And sexy feet.

All of my Retro colours are included, as are Pooklet's neons. Each colour also comes in a plain version and one with polkadots, because what the world really needs is more polkadots! You'll have to grab the mesh seperately, because I did both a sexy-footed version, and a maxis version.

Retro
Pooklet's

Sexy Feet
Maxis Feet

Loot Redux



As mentioned here by Pooklet, the skull on the original mesh, did not play nice with shaved alphas. At least in shape anyway. So I replaced Nouk's skull with the original maxis skull, and Pooklet, being the delightful person she is, editted the result so that the hair sat properly on the new skull.

So yes. This is merely a mesh replacment, you'll still need somebody's textures for this to work (mine or Nymphy's will work) and you will need to delete the original mesh. DELETE IT. Or else it will not work.

I'm also working on a female version for this, I think it'll look pretty good :P

Those dammned shirts

:) That everyone has been after, and I have been too damn lazy to share.

So, to make up for it, I recoloured the shit out of it. Really recoloured the shit out of it.

Oh yes

So, Toy Story in 3D was absolutely fantastic. Wow. I've never seen *that* amount of detail in those movies before, and I watch them on DVD rather often. Well worth the obscene price it was to go see it :D The friend I went with seems to think that they're thinking of releasing some of the other ones in 3D too, which would be great. I would love to see the Incredibles again.

It was great seeing it too, just as a kind of arse-boot to get back into animation. This is definately what I want to do with my life - though perhaps more with the 2D than the 3D, I enjoy that more - and there is going to be one of my films up there on the shiny big screen with the kickarse sound. Yes.

(only I doubt I would be able to watch it with any form of enjoyment - be too busy picking out flaws XD)

And because you don't want to listen to me blather on about my life, have some works in progress.

This way )
