Basic maxis mesh recolor
Overview:
In this tutorial you will be learning the first steps in creating new clothing for the sims 2. I will be taking you through the steps in picking a maxis outfit from the body shop and adding color to the clothing. you will also learn how to export and import in the Body shop.
(note: the body shop comes with the game. well it should)
Requirements:
 Body shop- http://thesims2.ea.com/help/?pid=Help_tutorials
Paint. net- http://www.getpaint.net/index2.html
Level: Easy, medium, hard
Begin:
Lets begin by opening up the Body shop. the body shop takes a long time on my computer so now you can go do something else while we are waiting.... ok are we finished? yes well this is what you should see in the body shop.

Once the body shop has finished loading click on create parts>start projects>create clothing>everday outfits. we need to select an outfit to recolor. Find the dress you see in the picture below. now i have picked the black dress and black shoes because they are dull and very ugly and so is the style but the style is another book we aint reading today. continuing on now select the dress then click export. now give you project a name. i will be calling mine afminidress1.

Lets go back to the body shop to preview our work. click the refresh buttom. it is a circling arrow. If you followed all my directions your outfit should look simular to mine. if you are satisified with the dress then you can import it into the game by clicking the import buttom below. see picture below.

What I want to know is why I should care? I mean, not to say that what youve got to say isnt important, but I mean, its so generic. Everyones talking about this man. Give us something more, something that we can get behind so we can feel as passionately about it as you do.
